✨✧ Manu DibangoAfrican Woodoo ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Some of the coolest work we've ever heard from the legendary Manu Dibango – sound library recordings done right around the same time as his "Soul Makossa" hit, and with an equally funky groove! The music often has Manu's sax in the lead, alongside larger orchestrations that have a soundtrack/sound library funk sort of approach – tight, but never slick – and a perfect foil for solos, especially considering that some of the music here was recorded in New York – with work from Cedar Walton on keyboards, Buster Williams on bass, and Tony Williams on drums! The whole thing's great – a whole new side of Dibango's genius, appearing here for the first time ever – and titles include "Lagos Go Slow", "Du Bush A Bush", "Walking To Waza". "Blowin' Western Mind", "Motapo", "Groovy Flute", "African Pop Session", "Coco In Central Park", "Aphrodite Shake", and "New Wood". CD
