Across a broad panorama of eclectic taste, the new el combines a sensual, but serious-minded look at history, seasoned with the bravura style of the original label.
Diversity is el’s great virtue, and anyone that might imagine the likes of Joao Gilberto, Gabor Szabo, Monica Zetterlund, Ravi Shankar, Edgard Varese, Sophia Loren, Serge Gainsbourg, Nana Mouskouri, Chet Atkins and Baden Powell to be strange bedfellows, will find entertaining evidence to the contrary here.
Whether the subject is the Voice of Greece, the pioneers of Musique Concrete or a Brazilian guitar master, el’s primary concern is with what is poetic and distinctive and compellingand to present it with a little style.
