Today marks the release date for Hammock House: Africa Caribe out on Fania Records. Produced and mixed by Joaquin “Joe” Claussell, it’s a stunning two-disc album with each track approached and assembled differently, each on its own terms. The first disc is a live continuous mix by Claussell, creating an epic journey that begins in the Motherland (Africa) and moves to New York. The second disc features nine classic Fania tunes from Lou Perez, Celia Cruz, Eddie Palmieri, Ray Barretto and more, all re-worked with the Joe Claussell touch.
