Turntable Tuesday :: Jackie Brown’s Buena Vista

In the Studio : Turntable Tuesday
Tarantino’s homage to blaxploitation film Jackie Brown is a lovely example of a strong and street smart girl, even if her heart was a just a little broken in the end.

La-La (Means I Love You) - The Delfonics (8 track tape--low-fi)

This epic Cuban group Buena Vista Social Club is playing in a postcard Italian village in the Langhe called Montforte, which hosts an international jazz festival each July called MonfortinJazz.  Just caught wind of it and got tickets in time!
