The Case of the Latin Triangulation

12:00pm, 2-10-2019
<< Tropicology

In politics, triangulation is defined as presenting an ideology or a policy position that is situated between (and perhaps above) the positions at the right and left of the political spectrum. Today I am triangulating a Latin music playlist.

The music today is perhaps best described by what it is not... there is nothing to pulse-racing today, but neither are there any boleros, lounge groovers, or slowjams. Everything today features a touch of jazz sensibility, but nothing here that would ever be found in the jazz section at a record store. We will hear riffs on popular melodies and familiar vamps, but there are no big hits on today's show. Today's menu calls for 2 hours of enjoyable low-key Latin that you will somehow find still stuck in your head weeks later. It's a subtle and seductive infection.

Today's set themes in order: charming, campy, fun, lounge, big band, and mod.
