While we are taking a break from electronic music like Sugababes and still south of the border, Keith, not sure if you have tried
CAETANO VELOSO The best of Nonesuch Warner 2003. Its a good listen. No bad tracks, Guitarish though, but back to a bit of brass
MANUEL GUAJIRO MIRABAL on trumpets World Circuit 2004 is not too bad. He apparently has Joao Gilberto as his influence. Music all within the circle.
