Gecko Turner – Soniquete: The Sensational Sound of Gecko Turner

Album (Brief) | Lovemonk | By Allan Wilkinson | Stars: 3/5

The best of the highly infectious sound of Spanish-born singer songwriter and musician Gecko Turner, featuring fourteen tracks, each lifted from previous releases with exception of “Cortando Bajito”, a brand new track. The combination of jazz, blues, samba, reggae, hip-hop and electronica, is seamlessly mixed with visceral Iberian grooves with guest appearances by UK vocalist Eska, Brazilian, flamenco percussionist Rubem Dantas and Cuban pianist Javier ‘Caramelo’ Masso. In places reminiscent of Sly Stone at his most soulful and sultry.
