New release "Double Dutch" from Jesse Cook on new album 'Beyond Borders' #NowPlaying #JazzBayRadio #MusicPromotions - http://www.jessecook.com/
Canadian guitarist Jesse Cook, known for his masterful fusion of world music styles, has traveled the globe looking for sounds that resonate with him. On his new album, Beyond Borders, he continues his journey, playing music without any cultural or geographical boundaries.
"Double Dutch" the album's first single, is a percussion heavy excursion into the rhythms of Spain and Cuba, with a side helping of salsa styles from Miami and New York. The mid-tempo rumba groove is stated by Cook's guitar, overlaid with his hand clapping and a basic djembe line. Processed drum loops generate unfamiliar sounds that suggest India, Latin America and the Middle East, as Cook's shimmering lead guitar weaves in and out of the mix.
I like music that provides a common ground for different traditions, a space where music from all historical eras and parts of the world can mingle. - Jesse Cook
