Hayden Childs’ Record Collection: Lord Invader to the Lothars

Lord Invader – Calypso in New York (recorded 1940s-1950s).  This is a Smithsonian Folkways collection of Lord Invader’s excellent postwar calypso.  Lyrical topics range from party music to scathing indictments of American racism.  The man could cook.

Loren Mazzacane Connors – Long Nights (1995) and Airs (1999).  Avant-garde guitarist Connors plays some quite airy improvised music here.  When I was listening to it, I was exhausted and seeking to drown out the whirr of jet engines, and these did so without raising my blood pressure.
