This Lp is one of the finest examples of Spiritual House Music...It combines latin sounds, afro beats, & jazz whit classic deep house elements.
"LANGUAGES" features, along side House Music veteran Joe Claussell, a wide multi-cultural range of talented and experienced musicians.This is what, to me, makes this album so good, perfect & Unique.
If i'd have to pick a tune, my stand out track is "Je Ka Jo" wich blends claussell's tribal rhythms whit the extrordinary violin of Miri Ben-Ari topped whit the unmisteakable voice of Vera Mara..Cant get any better than this!
If you don't have this LP, and youre simply into good music, just buy it!
