Tabu, 1995. Used ... $6.99
Early album by Femi Kuti – a tight bunch of tracks that picks up where his father's work left off, taking the classic 70s Afro Funk sound firmly into the 90s. By that, we don't mean that Femi's adding in any extra garbage to the music – because the overall sound is very much in the ... read more CD

A very cool record from saxophonist Robert Mavouzny and trombonist Al Lirvat – the latter of whom also cut some biguine albums on the French scene of the 70s!
