This week’s show featured the outstanding compilation called “Pachuco Boogie,” on a label called Arhoolie Records, which is all about the music of Los Angeles’ pachuco culture from the 1930s and 40s – if you’ve seen the movie ‘Zoot Suit,’ you know at least the style of clothing. What comes as a bit of a surprise to me was how the pachucos’ music was a mix of jump jive, rumba, boogie and traditional Mexican music. That and Bebel Gilberto’s new album ‘Momento,’ especially the Prins Thomas remix of ‘Bring Back the Love’ are worth noting.
