Haiti Direct Big Band, Mini Jazz And Twoubadou Sounds, 1960-1978

Haiti Direct
Big Band, Mini Jazz And Twoubadou Sounds, 1960-1978


This sensational, eagerly-awaited compilation by Sofrito is the best Strut in donkeys and sure to be one of the key outernational releases of the year...

Deliriously it spoors the big-band Compas Direct sound of the early-sixties ó a swirling, thumping, ska-minded update on Meringue, with twanging guitars, timbale breaks and pumping bass ó giving way to smaller groups like Shleu Shleu and Les Freres Dejean, as raw electric guitars, wailing saxophones and driving percussion blended local rhythms with rock and jazz... a raucous, punchy, dense sound to ring in the new decade.
Stupendous stuff. Don't miss it.
