Just heard the Marcos Valle track ‘Garra’ for the first time in what seems like years. This track (and the entire album actually) was on heavy rotation back in 2000. And I still really like it. That moment when the track reaches a crescendo and he just starts scatting is so joyful! That said, I can imagine a time when I will like this less – it’s so peppy that I can imagine some people finding it cheesy. You have to love a bit of Marcos though.
Sorry for the abject silence. I’ve been working like a dog! And buying records, but I have very little time to talk about them. In a nutshell, I’m still on a bit of a Roxy Music binge, and I’m also buying all kinds of charity shop records, occasionally unearthing gems.
Lots of Misty Roses news though!
