Charanga-Rama

5.00 6

Contemporary charanga from Bongo-Logic – and a set that's got a crisp edge that goes even farther than older albums of this nature! The production is excellent – razor-sharp, yet never in a smooth way – just with a strong ear for the deft musical interplay between percussion, violin, and flute – all quick-stepping together with soaring lead vocals from singer Freddy Crespo! The great Art Webb handles all the flute – with the soulful undercurrents we've always loved in his music – and titles include "Cangui Compay!", "Si Tu Quieres", "Charanga Rama", "El Congo Colonial", and "Cha-Rhumba Sabroso".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Motown/Universal (Japan), 1981. New Copy
Great group soul from the early 80s Motown years – a stellar set from Michael Smith and the Lovesmith group – the quartet he sung with before moving on as a solo act with the group's name in place of his own surname! Michael previously worked in The Smith Connection group in the 70s, ... CD
