GILLES PETER­SON PRESENTS: HA­VANA CULTURA AN­THOL­OGY BROWNSWOOD RECORD­INGS, OUT 2 DE­CEM­BER Lon­don acid-jazzer puts the spot­light on Cuba’s rising tal­ent over triple-vinyl set.

No one could fairly ac­cuse DJ and Brownswood Record­ings owner Gilles Peter­son of dilet­tan­tism when you con­sider he’s spent the best part of a decade show­cas­ing mod­ern Cuban sounds with his Ha­vana Cultura pro­ject. Quite the op­po­site, in fact, as Peter­son here digs deep for this snazzy, 23- track col­lec­tion of clubby jazz grooves and new-gen­er­a­tion Latin hip-hop. All told, a Buena Vista So­cial Club for the 21st cen­tury. SI­MON McEWEN
