Playing for Change

My review of the Playing for Change comp is up at RapReviews now. Playing for Change is an organization that aims to unite people through music. They've just released a comp of musicians around the world collaborating on songs, like Bob Marley's "One Love."

The musicians are all recorded outside, and the result is a band comprised of members across multiple continents, cultures, and languages. It's a nice idea, although the folky, mellow world music they make isn't necessarily my bag. The version of "A Change is Gonna Come" on the CD is pretty amazing.
