Senor Coconut and His Orchestra – Around the World

i want a BBQ

The man of a million aliases (well 40+ to be precise) , Uwe Schmidt, better know to you and me as Senor Coconut, is back. You have to be pretty hard of heart (and short of humour) not to find something, somewhere on this album that doesn’t make you smile. Bossa nova covers of dance music ‘standards’ is something that he has been doing for a while now, occasionally dipping into more mainstream songs for his inspiration, and he does it very very well. It would be easy to dismiss this as novelty, but really that’s just lazy.

These songs are taken apart and reconstructed with such love and attention, that it is impossible not to be charmed. There are 3 versions of Daft Punk’s “Around The World” on here (coincidently done recently in a jazz piano style by Christian Prommer – and much more grown up), as well as a nervous version of electro classic “White Horse” to name just two… Summer music doesn’t come much happier than this. I want a BBQ.
