Album of the Week – ‘La Sesion de Cuba’ by Feel the Manouche


‘La Sesion de Cuba’ by Feel the Manouche is Eastside Radio’s Album of the Week.

Following the Aussie outfit’s performance at The Havana International Jazz Festival comes 11 Latin infused tracks shaking up the signature Manouche sound. Manouche is a term derived from the Romany gypsies of Europe, what we in Australia call gypsy jazz. This fine band has been put together by it’s individual members as an exercise in small group swing. Feel the Manouche has a ‘world music’ feel. Through it’s use of double bass, guitar, accordion & fiddle, the band achieves a strong melodic groove that can take on gypsy waltzes, swing jazz, choro and many other flavours of music from our diverse planet. We invite you to sit back and ‘Feel the Manouche’.
