GREECE VASSILIS TSITSANIS JSP JSPCD 77111 Rembetika 3 : 1936-1940 All The Pre-War Recordings $31.98
Five CDs, 101 tracks, essential
A third collection of classic Greek rembetika music from the collection of Charles Howard as his associates courtesy of JSP. This one is devoted to the work of the great Vassilis Tsitsanis who was perhaps was one of the greatest performers to emerge from the classic rembetiko period before WW II, a modern Greek hero whose funeral procession drew two hundred thousand mourners. Tsitsanis was the master of the bouzouki, a long necked mandolin like instrument, which he plays on all tracks here as well as being composer of most of the songs and providing accompanying vocals. Unlike many of his fellow rembetes Tsitsanis had a formal education and brought elements of Western Music to his music. Lead vocals are provided by great singers like Yeoriia Mittaki, Sophia Abadzi (sister of the great Rita Abadzi), Apostolos Hadzichristos, Rita Abadzi, Efstratios Payioumidzis (better known as "Stratos"), Stylianos Perpiniadhis (better known as "Stellakis"), Daizy Stavropoulou and others. Considering the rarity of some these recordings the sound quality is outstanding and the booklets have brief biographical notes, outlines of the songs and discographical details. Dusky and smoky as the taverns where it was played, this is timeless music suffused with a profound sense of the joyfulness and the strivings of life. Tsitsanis' musicianship is nothing short of astounding and he plays with both great virtuosity and effortless ease. The whole gamut of human emotion and experience is evoked, playful and flirtatious one minute, yearning and melancholy the next. These magnificent recordings are absolutely essential to fans of Greek music and highly recommended to everyone else! Previous volumes (JSP 7776 and 77105 are equally indispensible. (FS/ DP)

GREECE VASSILIS TSITSANIS JSP JSPCD 77123 Rembetika 4 : The Postwar Years $28.98
Four CD set, 92 tracks, very highly recommended
The fourth volume from JSP and compiler Charles Howard devoted to that wonderful Greek musical style known as rembetika and the second volume devoted to the great composer and bouzouki player Vassilis Tsitsanis. In spite of his formal education the music of Tsitsanis infused with sensitivity and soul. He composed almost all the songs on the set and provides bouzouki accompaniment and second vocals to such great singers as Efstratios Payioumidzis (better known as "Stratos"), Stellakis Perpiniadhis, Stella Haskil, Sotiria Bellou, Yiorgos Mitsakis and others. In addition to Tsitsanis's stellar bouzouki playing we also hear tracks with guitar, accordion and clarinet. The sound quality is outstanding and the booklets have brief biographical notes, outlines of the songs, a glossary of terms and discographical details. Dusky and smoky as the taverns where it was played, this is timeless music suffused with a profound sense of the joyfulness and the strivings of life. Tsitsanis' musicianship is nothing short of astounding and he plays with both great virtuosity and effortless ease. The whole gamut of human emotion and experience is evoked, playful and flirtatious one minute, yearning and melancholy the next. Though these post war recordings are perhaps not quite as compelling as the pre-war recordings they are consistently superb and this set is indispensible for lovers of Greek music and anyone who wants to explore some truly great music from foreign lands. Previous volumes (JSP 7776, 77105 and 77111 are equally indispensible. (FS/ DP)

HAWAII VARIOUS ARTISTS JSP JSPCD 7738 It's Hotter In Hawaii - Early Hits From A Unique Musical Form $28.98
Four CD set featuring 105 tracks of vintage Hawaiian music with emphasis on hot steel guitar work. It features artists from Hawaii as well performers from the American mainland and since the music became popular worldwide we also hear some performers from Europe, Argentina, Mexico and elsewhere. It includes some of the greatest and most influential exponents of the genre including performers like Sol Ho'opii, Frank Ferera, Tau Moe with Wife & Family, Roy Smeck, Master's Hawaiians, Kanui & Lula, King Bennie Nawahi, The Hawaiian Quintette, Jim & Bob, Kalama's Quartet along with lots of lesser known artists. If you already have all the albums of Hawaiian music on Rounder, Yazoo, Arhoolie, T.O.M., Harlequin, etc. then you probably have most of the recordings here though I think there are a few tracks making their first CD appearance here. If you don't have all the other reissues this is an excellent and inexpensive way to get a great cross section of recordings. Sound quality is excxellent. It's too bad that the notes are so cursory.

GREECE VARIOUS ARTISTS JSP 7776 Rembetika $28.98
Four CDs, 89 tracks, approx five hours, essential
This is one of the reissues of the year. Rembetika is often thought of as the Greek equivalent of the blues - a creation of the underclass and dealing with the realities of their life - smoking hash, thieving, jail, addiction, desire and betrayal sung with incredible soul and feeling. The music is thought to have originated with Greeks who had to leave Asia Minor at the beginning of the 20th Century. The earliest form is the Smyrnaic style (after Smyrna in Turkey) where the musicians first played the style and had a strong Turkish flavor to it. The usual accompaniment included violin, santouri/ cimbalom (hammered dulcimer), guitar and oud. The first volume is mostly devoted to recordings in this style and includes such legendary performers as Marika Papagika (who recorded in the USA), Achilleas Poulus (who sang in Turkish), the prolific and popular Andonios Dhiamandidhis (aka "Dalgas"), the sublime female singers Roza Eskenazi and Rita Abadzi. In the early 30s a new style of rembetica began to appear in the port city of Piraeus with a less ornamented style of singing and the extensive use of the bouzouki and its smaller cousin the baglama. The second disc is devoted to this style featuring sides by the gruff voiced Markos Vamvakaris - another extremely popular performer who recorded hundreds of songs as well as Stratos Payioumidzis, Yiorgis Batis and others. The third volume is strongly dominated by the guitar though the bouzouki and other instruments are also featured. It includes five gorgeous instrumental sides - two of them featuring bouzouki master Jack Halikias, one a rare example of a lute instrumental in rembetika and a dazzling guitar instrumental from the mysterious K. Kostis. This disc also features a track by the amazing George Katsoras whose modal singing and guitarist almost has the feel of a Mississippi hill country blues. In April, 1936 a right-wing government took power in Greece and censorship was introduced resulting in the banning of lyrics with an "undesirable" content as well as "Eastern style" music. The fourth disc features recordings from this period of censorship and while the lyrics are more concerned with romance than with dope or crime the performances are still powerful and moving featuring artists like Rirta Abadzi, Stellakis, Vassilis TsitsanisYiorgos Kavouras and others. The sound quality is superb and the only drawback to this set is that only 12 pages were allocated to the notes and compiler and annotator Charles Howard has done his best to give an overview of the music, brief biographies of the performers, a glossary and very brief excerpts or descriptions of the songs.

Four CDs, 87 tracks, essential
Complementing JSP 7776 ("Rembetika" - $19.98) this is another fantastic collection of this incredibly powerful and moving music from Greece that has parallels with American blues in it's visceral impact. The recordings here cover the period 1908 through 1946 along with one track from 2000 showing that the music is still alive. Intensely emotional vocals with varied instrumental accompaniments including clarinet, oud, violin, cimbalom, guitar, bouzouki, lyra, mandolin, banjo and other instruments in varying combinations. Compiled by rembetika expert Charles Howard who provides notes, discography, brief biographies and excerpts from the songs. Sound quality is outstanding - even the four tracks recorded between 1908 and 1910 sound great. The first volume was one of the best releases of 2006 - this one is sure to be one of the best of 2008.

Complementing JSP 7726 and 7749 this is JSP's third foray into the world of vintage Cajun music with 100 superb tracks recorded between 1928 and 1939. It includes legendary names like Joe Falcon, Amede Ardoin, The Hackberry Ramblers (very little duplication with Arhoolie 7050 - $12.98) and Breaux Freres along with great but lesser known performers like Adam Trehan, Anatole Credure, Connor & Grader, Delin T. Guillory & Lewis LaFleur, Miller's Merrymakers, Louisiana Rounders (featuring "Papa Cairo"), The Alley Boys Of Abbeville, etc. Considering the rarity of many of these recordings the sound quality is excellent and there are brief informative notes by Pat Harrison and full discographical data.
