I was recently approached by Caitlin who represents Mario Grigorov, a well-known musician and film composer. You can find more information about Mario on his website. Mario is getting ready to release a new album, "Paris to Cuba" and we've got 3 CDs to give away to our readers. I thought that this kind of music (latin-jazz) might appeal to you because (I listened to a few songs and can confirm that) it pairs up well with a cigar and a glass of rum.
All you need to do is comment on this post to be entered to win one of the CDs. The winners will be selected next Sunday. Subscribe to the updates so you don't miss the announcement! :)
Contest open internationally.
From the press release:
The ten tracks on Paris To Cuba are the embodiment of summertime. Composed and created by Mario Grigorov, the album’s sound conjures up beautiful complexions, mid-afternoon mojitos, linen garments, and vintage Cadillacs. This is music that immediately evokes an aural landscape, a narrative of striking up a wandering romance with a stranger, a “paseo” through Plaza Vieja or a sunset on the Seine. Lilting, sensual brass sections flirt with gentle vocals on “I See”, “Every Little Movement”, and “Snake Eyes”- the three tracks which feature singer, Melissa Newman. Blending hints of Pink Martini and Buena Vista Social Club, the percussion section laps as a wave on an empty beach. It is easy for the listener to get lost in the guitar solos, mysterious accordion and nostalgic, sweeping strings. This is not your typical jazz or world record.
