Abstract Index Playlist - November 21/07

I wrote about Ghislain Poirier for AOL Canada a few weeks ago. Don't know if I would have bothered trying to break down "Dancehall Vibes 101" in quite the same way in another publication, but the thrust of the article is that Mr. GP is doing it his own way. He gets inspired performances and ideas from the vocalists he works with, and it sounds like the exchange of ideas is mutually rewarding - I had heard Face T and Kulcha Connection before, but something tells me I should keep an eye on them...

Best of all - and I don't know how many times I've termed this as the ultimate virtue on the Abstract Index - it's the kind of album that I can play in many different contexts because the multifaceted rhythms jump off so well to all the beat oriented musics I love.
