CDBL – “I Need You”

There’s not much info floating around about this French production team other than it consisting of Comix Del Biagio and Ben Lambs, collectively forming the acronymous CDBL. I came across this track last week and immediately fell in love with its atmospheric lounge vibe because It really reminds me of London. To listen to the entire “Vices E.P.” check out their soundcloud and if you’re really feeling them, add them on facebook! Bless up!

Rastamonday (Alton Ellis – “Ain’t that Lovin’ You”)

It’s Rastamonday at Dorsh Music, and this week we are sharing a track by Alton Ellis. May it help you relax and rock your Monday morning. Bless.

Did it ever occur to you why I do
All that any man can do?
You keep a smile on your face
It’s because I love you, I love you
I love you in so many ways

Miguel Zenon – Alma Adentro: The Puerto Rican Songbook

Alto saxophonist, composer and arranger, Miguel Zenón explored his Puerto Rican heritage on “Alma Adentro: The Puerto Rican Songbook,” by offering virtuosic reworkings of two tunes from five of Puerto Rico’s most beloved songwriters. Zenón uses a regular jazz quartet augmented by a ten piece wind ensemble -including pianist Luis Perdomo, bassist Hans Glawischnig, and drummer Henry Cole,  to explore the popular Puerto Rican tunes. The album cover is suggestive of a good time, in the street with a loved one, dancing to life’s jazz.

Be sure to check out the rest of the album, but here is our favorite feature, called “Amor.” Fullyjoy.
