Cyril JacksonAfro Stereo (aka Afro Drums) ... LP
Counterpoint, 1958. Very Good- ... $6.99
A great little album of percussion grooves – hidden under a package that looks like it's going to be a lot more rootsy, but which ends up sounding like some of the hipper conga-heavy sessions on labels like Liberty or GNP from the late 50s. Jackson plays much of the percussion, but there's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
