Product Description

Product Description

Joe Claussell is one of today's hottest producers & DJ's, especially familiar to those who have had the opportunity to attend a night at New York's legendary Body & Soul where Joe is a resident. Being involved in both Dancetracks, another of New York's musical institutions & being solely responsible for the prolific label Spiritual Life Music, Joe's activities reflect his musical influences from rock & pop to African & Latin & are clearly demonstrated in the innovative & danceable tracks he produces. BBE & Urban Theory are proud to present Joe Claussell & an album which illustrates an evening with him & which shows the listener that he is more than just a house DJ. ‘A Reason to Celebrate' stretches boundaries by presenting us with a diverse number of tracks from Ronny Jordan & War to the hispanic genius of Jorge Ben & Hector Lavoe. This album allows the listener a new way of looking at & listening to world music, so open your ears & your mind & start dancing!

From the Artist

"For me, my musical taste goes across the board; not only organic, it's electronic, it's folkish, it's all kind of things, I believe in five years time, when people use the words ‘world music', it's going to consist of everything. It's very beautiful and powerful what music does. It just makes me see clearer, be a more open mind. It makes me more interested in cultures with different kinds of people, their background, and their beliefs. My goal is to expose the role that music really plays in our lives." of soulful dance music in the market.

Format: Audio CD
this is my favourite ever compilation by a long way, and everything a compliation should be. music is clearly a spiritual journey for joe claussell, and, he uses his encyclopaedic record collection to seamlessly take the listener on such a journey - through a world of styles and genres covering african, latin, jazz, disco, electro, soul and dance. Diverse though it is, the track selection always feels logical. He's compiled tracks that, although different in genre, fit together and share a common thread of essential positivity, quality and beauty. Buy it.

A compilation extravaganza!!! 4 Jan. 2003
By James N. Carlozzi - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Wonderful mixture of various types of music, and artists of the past 3 decades. Contains jazz, R&B, Disco, acid jazz, and some rare and out-of-print recordings. If you have a wide variety if tastes, then you will not be disappointed. An absolutely brillant piece of work.
A+++. Cheers!
