Global Latin-soul pioneers Sunlightsquare reveal a surprise 12 inch vinyl single for summer time 2012! Digging deep into his vinyl collection, BBC acclaimed producer Claudio Passavanti selects and reenacts (in his signature Afro-Cuban key) two of the most iconic rare-groove & avant-garde tracks from the 70's: Heart's Desire (Don Blackman) and Theme De Yoyo (Art Ensemble Of Chicago).
Encompassing an eye-opening span of soulful vocals from English to Spanish all the way through to the Timba Habanera, Heart's Desire (Side A) presents the superb vocals of Tasita D'Mour (Roy Ayers, Copyright, DJ Kawasaky) along with sensational Cuban "ambassador" Rene Alvarez. Travelling on the experimental lane is Vanessa Freeman (Bugz In The Attic, 4 Hero, Kyoto Jazz Massive) as she lends her commanding voice on Theme De Yoyo (Side B) to give a new and unexpected life to this obscure composition from Lester Bowie. The large line-up of musicians on this stunning production includes legendary Cuban drummer Ernesto Simpson (Arturo Sandoval, Quincy Jones, Dizzy Gillespie, Richard Bona), Bata master Giovanni Imparato (Isaac Delgado, Paco De Lucia, Ray Charles), and top British jazz horn duo Quentin Collins & Brandon Allen (Amy Winehouse, Basement Jaxx, Eric Clapton, Mica Paris).
