The kind of wrongheaded gimmick record that works brilliantly almost in spite of itself, Ray Barretto's Señor 007 cashes in on the craze for all things James Bond by recasting composer John Barry's intrigue-laden themes as hard-driving Latin jazz groovers. Barretto's bold, widescreen arrangements and punishing rhythms ratchet the music's intensity to new levels while also expanding the potent sensuality implicit in Barry's compositions. Familiar melodies like "Goldfinger," "Thunderball," and the ubiquitous "James Bond Theme" seem fresh and new all over again -- and the cover, complete with Barretto in a classic espionage tableau, is alone worth the price of admission.

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Gone to heaven, Betty Davis remains the pioneer of feline soul sisters. The funk goddess par excellence. She was also one of the leading ladies in a certain Miles Davis' life, whose wife she would be for a short time. But who really were you Betty?

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, “Lhasa” de Sela still made her unique mark on contemporary popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are all accomplished works in their own right and open the door to a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dream and reality. Full of both light and darkness, these songs are imbued with the genuine feelings of an artist whose heartfelt vocals reach out and pull the listener in, creating an intimate relationship with the audience. Looking back at the life of “Lhasa” de Sela, the makings of a legend are visible like chapters in a novel, complete with all the emotion that comes with a beautiful but heartbreaking storyline.

Santana: The Tijuana Lizard

Santana’s CV boasts an iconic Woodstock performance, a dozen Grammy Awards, millions of record sales (thanks to his metamorphosis into a Latin pop star), and more and more prestigious collaborations... He’s one of those artists that everyone loves - peers, public and critics alike. Here, we explore the life of an accomplished artist who is constantly renewing himself, much like a lizard shedding its skin.
