Good follow-up., November 11, 2002 By "malore" (NYC)
Ever since mainstream stores have begun stocking these wonderful albums, I've seen many people purchase them who wouldn't ordinarily. Now it seems as if the makers have begun capitalizing on this buy putting out volume 2, 3, 4, 5 and beyond. There's nothing really wrong with this as it gets more great music out there. The only problem that I can find is that when you start putting out several albums based on a small pool of music, a lot of repetition can occur. Some albums if this genre that I've bought have been blatant copies of other, more well know discs out there. This CD does have some songs that can be heard elsewhere, but the versions are slightly different. It's a bit different from volume 1 in that this disc seems to be more lyrics and vocals. Almost a bit rocky. I can see this being played at an upbeat bar or club and getting a good response. The first disc was mellower; this one seems to pick up the beat a bit. Although, there are still plenty of down time songs to appreciate. I would recommend this album without hesitation, although I imagine a purchase of volume 1 would be in order.
Joseph Baldassare once again brings together the most exciting singers and musicians from around the globe to work on his original compilation, Living Theater, the only compilation written as a compilation in the chillout / lounge scene.
The Living Theater series on Kunduru Music, consists of original songs written, arranged and produced by Joseph Baldassare, not licensed tracks compiled by a DJ.
After the success of the first two volumes, Buddha-bar presents Living Theater vol. 1 & 2, Joseph has now created his third volume entitled Living Theater vol.3 Metamorphosis.
Baldassare along with his array of international performers from Greece, Italy, Ireland, Canada, Venezuela and many more far off places step up the beat just a bit this time, taking this volume to the next level.The 14 song cd contains the ultimate in chill as well as some moving grooves as is apparent on Charlene Holloway's inspirational version of Baldassare's "Miracle".
Charlene, alongside other new-comers Kaz Silver (True Love), Missarah (Wishing you were here), Laurie Fessler (I confess) and Emanuelle degli Angeli (Voui ballar con me) are all welcomed additions to the Living Theater family of artists.
With musical styles ranging from trance opera to cool jazz, hip hop to ethnic, this one of a kind cd is a must for the world beat crowd who has the mind to travel while standing still, once again reminded, "If the world is a stage, then we are all Living Theater".
