#16] Ry Cooder Chavez Ravine: A Record By Ry Cooder
On his latest CD,
Ry Cooder offers a critical perspective on the displacement of countless Hispanic
Americans in the downtown area of Los Angeles. Cooders cinematic concept
album is a musical tour de force that outlines the citys decision to choose
mercantile gains over socio-cultural interests. The album seamlessly weaves
occasional covers with majestic originals to expertly narrate the musical odyssey.
