Review Text The Caceres in question is Juan Carlos, an Argentinian now living in Paris, a singer and multi-instrumentalist with a deep love of the music of his homeland. The murgas he explores here aren't as well known as the tango; they're heard at carnival time, in a marching style for the processions. But he's no purist, doing some mix and match with other local styles and beyond, as on "Miremos al Mañana," where the New Orleans brass and whiskey voice take it all into Tom Waits territory. Sadly, he restricts his trombone work to just two cuts, although it's so beautiful that it deserves more exposure ("La Retirada," the closing track, is a special delight). He brings in some guest vocalists, but for the most part, his own voice is more than adequate. Murga Argentina is an unusual, wonderful album -- one that leaves you wanting more. ~ Chris Nickson
