Gilles Peterson // Must Have Album // #189

November 14, 2014

Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 Albums that every Gilles Peterson fan should have. The album this week is self-titled Raices by Raices.

Released in 1975 on Nemperor Records, this percussive album blends a joyful, jazzy and sometimes chaotic atmosphere, created through an eclectic and extensive list of instruments, ranging from the Brazilian Berimbau to the African Cabasa. There is little information on the Puerto Rican/Brazilian members of Raices, but you may recognise the producer, The Doors’ regular, Bruce Botnik. If you haven’t heard this one yet, you are in for a treat.

Although this weeks album will not be available to listen to on Gilles’ Spotify, we’ve managed to track down the full album for your listening pleasure.

If you missed last weeks must have album, you can find it here.
