Wow! The one-and-only album by Trinidadian combo Black Truth Rhythm
Band – a completely incredible one at that – hypnotic Caribbean funky soul, jazz and wildly impressive musicianship all around by this group led by singer and multi-instrumentalist Oluko Imo. The record was made in the mid 70s era in which the Afro Funk sound was hitting it's peak – when African rhythm
s and James Brown style funk were being fused so furiously – but Black Truth Rhythm
Band take a different approach, working more with sounds from African spectrum and the West Indies. It's really amazing stuff that takes unpredictable twists from stripped down rhythm
s, to jazzy guitars and cosmic synths – always with straight up brilliant playing by the group. A fusion of African rhythm
s, strains of Calypso and boundary free jazzy grooves that balance and exploratory sensibility with tight, irresistible rhythm
s. Soundway raises the bar once again! Titles include "Ifetayo", "You People", "Saved Musician", "Kilimanjaro", "Aspire", and "Umbala" – plus a bonus 7" single with the track "Imo".
