Mambo Atomico

LP (Item 475298) Tramp (Germany), 2008 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 39

The grooviest work so far from the Hi-Fly Orchestra – a set that moves even farther past the sublime territory of their debut, into a really classic blend of soul jazz and Latin rhythms – produced to perfection with a wonderfully solid feel! Instrumentation here is all live – a blend of sax, flute, trombone, Fender Rhodes, piano, and plenty of percussion – all handled with a feel that takes us back to some of our favorite territory on Verve Records from the 60s, those wonderful records that blended elements from the Latin underground with some of the harder jazz leanings of the period – a legacy these guys are happy to add to with their wonderful grooves. Miriam Aida guests on vocals on two cuts, but most titles are instrumental – and tunes include "Afro Boo", "Carioquinha", "Polonesa", "Mrs Shing A Ling", "Hi Fly Stomp", "Mambo Atomico", and a surprisingly groovy cover of "Crosstown Traffic".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Rejuiced Phat Shake (with bonus CD)
Legere (France), 2014. New Copy

Music For Adverts
Freestyle (UK), 2014. New Copy
Lack Of Afro are back, and fiercer than ever before – really evolved from just a name known for funky remixes and dancefloor grooves, and stepping forward strongly into a much more well-rounded, deeply soulful group!

Heavyweight
Freestyle (UK), 2013. New Copy
A definite heavyweight set from Frootful – one that's every bit as funky as before, but which also shows the group picking up some new flavors too!

In Your Brain
Ubiquity, 2012. New Copy 2LP
The Monophonics definitely have a way of getting inside your brain – using a cosmic slop of fuzzy guitars and funky basslines to eat away your grey matter more than a maggot inside your cranium!

A massive look at the music of Greyboy – one that features classic cuts, previously unreleased tracks, and rare mixes as well!

Story Teller
Ubiquity, 2010. New Copy
LP...$9.99 16.98
If the story is stripped down avant funk instrumentals with subtle stylistic twists and turns, it's a story worth telling – and that's what Clutchy Hopkins puts down on The Story Teller – an album that manages to be among his most raw and direct and his most adventurous at the same time! ...

Ubiquity, 2013. New Copy 2LP
A really wonderful collaboration between Shawn Lee and Adrian Quesada – and a set that maybe goes further than a lot of recent work from the artists on their own!
