African Jazz 1960 - Various Artists,
Pathé Marconi / EMI 1977

Originally these tracks were all recorded in 1965 and 1966.
The album we have here however concerns a re-release from
1977. It's title 'African Jazz 1960' therefore seems a little strange.
On the frontcover we can see the lp's from which they were
extracted, hope to find them too one fine day. For now we'll
settle with these 12 fine songs and keep up hopes.


 1   Lucie Yenga & African Jazz - Josetta
 2   Lucie Yenga & African Jazz - Adios tsoutsou
 3   Bombenga Jeannot & African Jazz - Ai mi povre charro
 4   Casino & African Jazz - Boyoka African Jazz
 5   Lucie Yenga et Son Ensemble - Dit moninga
 6   Lucie Yenga et Son Ensemble - Bolingo ya la joie
 7   Tino Baroza et Son Ensemble - Coco
 8   Tino Baroza et Son Ensemble - Adolphine
 9   Kabasele et Son Ensemble - Kale kato
10  Kabasele et Son Ensemble - Ngai na yo se
11  Kabasele et Son Ensemble - Yalee
12  Kabasele et Son Ensemble – Parafifi

Apart from the first 4 songs these are remastered from songs recorded for the Opika label (which closed in 1956).
These Opika songs feature the sax of Fud Candrix, a Belgian jazz artist (of some repute in the jazz scene) whose sax was initially 'dubbed', but who later went to Leopoldville to record in situ. These recordings can be seen as the starting point of Congolese sax tradition, with great players like (Rhodesian) Isaac Musekiwa, (later) Verckys and many more.

dear visitors,
it's hardly possible to restore all the links people ask me to. Within the coming few months we'll be working on a new and improved Global Groove, a bit more patience please..
thanks for asking though.
