An album that's unlike anything else we've ever heard before – served up by a percussionist who spent the mid 70s touring the Caribbean and South Pacific, and who seems to have absorbed a globe's worth of rhythms in the process! The album's probably closest to a jazz fusion album – as there's no vocals, and instrumentation is a mix of electric and acoustic – with lots of keyboard lines throughout, peppered with guitar, alto, tenor, and trumpet – yet the rhythmic changes are very different from familiar fusion, as is the role of the instruments – which don't always get solo space, because they're all so tied to the groove! The whole thing's got an upbeat, freewheeling vibe – sounds filled with plenty of joy and rhythm – and titles include "Tipi Fanm", "Doubout Pou Gade", "Syka", "Marie Blanche", and "Vini Coute E Tann".

Out Of Stock
An album with an ancient-looking painting on the front, but a style that's pure 70s – served up here in a keyboard-heavy style from sound library giant Jacky Giordano! Jacky's given us plenty of funky records over the years, and this rare gem is definitely up with those 70s classics – lots of tight, sharp tracks – drums that crackle nicely, but with an approach to funk that's nicely changed up from the familiar – topped with these keyboard lines that have a very different flavor on each track, creating a strong sense of variety, usually just with a bit of bass in the mix as well! The album supposedly features help from contemporary Yan Tregger – and titles include "Acid Feerique", "Philopsis", "Fluid Man", "Steel Mongoes", "Jumbo Flash", "Callisto", "Supplice Form", and "Agartha".
