商品詳細情報

アフロ・グルーヴの帝王、マヌ・ディバンゴがかの有名な『SOUL MAKOSSA』と同年の 1972 年にリリースしたレアグルーヴの大人気盤『AFRICAN VOODOO』がストレートリイシュー!! 映画やテレビのために録音したという、いわば劇伴用の音楽ではあるが、それゆえにリーダー作と違い、彼が影響を受けてきたソウル、ジャズ、ファンク、はたまたラテンのクラーベといった要素が混在。結果的にモンド~エキゾ感もある唯一無二な無国籍アフロ・ミクスチャーへと仕上がっている。今回のリイシューにあたり新規でリマスターを施すだけでなく、オリジナルを再現したという美麗な印刷、厚紙のジャケット、オレンジ色のスリーヴなどなど、モノとしての風格があるつくりも嬉しい限り。

INFOS
Fantastic and rare album by Manu Dibango, the Afro Soul Maestro!
These files were recorded in 1971 at Pathé-Marconi studio (Boulogne Billancourt) for professional sound illustration intended for the cinema, television and advertising. The jazzman experimenting with all genres was then beginning to convert solely to what soon to be called “Rare Groove” somewhere between Soul, Jazz and Afro-Funk, with a hint of Latin clave.
In 2019, these tunes have not aged and the sound can be considered as “Huge” by many crate-diggers. These recordings were not supposed to reach the club or radio audience, it was more free sessions, a moment during they can open their imagination and test their “Afro something”, like Manu Dibango call it. Theses recording sessions included the best of the french soul scene at this time, Yvan Julien (Trumpet), Slim Pezin (Guitar), Jacques Bolognesi (Trombone), Lucien Dobat (Drums), Emile Boza (Percussions, Manfred (Bass) and the conductor himself at the vibraphone, marimba, saxophone, organ ...
This album is a wonderful return to the future and should satisfy the need of the Afro-Soul aficionados! We're very happy to celebrate the 86th anniversary of the best French musician in history with one of his best recording reissue!
