17957: Harvey: Re: 17930: Haitian classical music (fwd)

From: Sean Harvey <seanharvey@juno.com>

 One other neat recording of a Casseus composition is jazz legend Charlie
 Rouse's recording of Casseus' Meci Bon Dieu, a movement from one of
 Casseus' guitar compositions. I highly recommend it -- great
 interpretation. This song is on Rouse's CD Bossa Nova Bacchanal, which is
 widely available in the US and was an attempt by Rouse to cash in on the
 bossa nova jazz craze that Stan Getz started and got rich off of. Rouse
 was the tenor saxophonist for Thelonious Monk.
