LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 32

The coolest grooves we've ever heard from percussionist Henri Guedon – a really wonderful blend of Latin, Caribbean, and jazz-based influences – all filtered into a very special sound! There's plenty of percussion at the core, but there's also some sweet keyboards too – used sparely, so that the album's not a funky electric one – but in just the right ways to bring in a cool sort of 70s funk touch to the whole record – almost in some of the ways you'd find with Nuyorican funk of the same time! Vocals are great, too – mostly in French – but the instrumental element is what really moves us – and it moves us plenty! Titles include "Brujeira", "Tou Patou Feme", "Guajira Contestation", "Bomba Miscien", "Vulcano", and "Marcel Song". (Beautiful pressing – super heavy cover and vinyl!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
