Tumblack - Tumblack 1978 (Barclay)


Label : Barclay

Value :

This is one of these scarce albums from the era of discofunk and electronics which is based on an ever pulsating carpet of percussive rhythms and every once in a while features melodic yet rhythm oriented chants instead of the typical lead vocals that come with your average pop tunes. At least not at the beginning of the record. With the time more and more elements of the pop music of those days join together with the wild and hypnotic rhythmical patterns of black African origins. Around the middle of this album the rather melodic chants riding on the polyrhythmic base of congas, bongos, rattles and other sources of sound take a turn into a rather shamanic and ritualistic barking and yelling which conjures a simmering and smouldering atmosphere. This part of the album which switches off your mind with its primitive feel and repetitive structures discharges into the final section where lush disco pop and funk arrangements welcome you back in the western civilization. Utterly intoxicating melodies and fiery rhythms will make sure you float on a pink cloud through the place you're in while spinning this strange vinyl. The way it develops is surely unique and the fusion of Western pop and African ritual dances generates an over sexualized mood and a tension you can only relief by moving your body to the beat. The great thing with „Tumblack“ is that what we get to listen to is all handmade music by truly gifted musicians. We speak of nothing less but a late 70s dance music masterpiece that reaches so far beyond the average disco music.

Charles Mingus And His Jazz Groups ‎– Mingus Dynasty 1960 (Columbia)


Label : Columbia

Value :

A late 50s classic by the great Charles Mingus – his follow-up to the seminal Mingus Ah-Um, and a set that's got a very similar flavor! As with some of Mingus' best material for Columbia, the album has him working with a slightly larger ensemble, but still holding onto the intensity of his smaller groups from a few years before – a way of merging the voices of saxophonists like Booker Ervin, John Handy, Benny Goldson, and Jerome Richardson – yet still allowing them space to break out with moments of pride and power that really send the whole thing home! This mix of the individual and ensemble is key to the Mingus genius of the period – and is also heard in the work of Roland Hanna on piano, Donald Ellis on trumpet, Jimmy Knepper on trombone, and Theodore Cohen on vibes – all of whom work alongside Charles' key drummer of the time, the great Dannie Richmond.

Phoenix ‎– Totusi Sînt Ca Voi / Floarea Stincilor / Nebunul Cu Ochii Inchisi / Ar Vrea Un Eschimos 1969 (Electrecord)


Label : Electrecord

Value :

Phoenix was one of the most prominent Romanian Rock and Roll bands of the latest decades, and also the first one to take musical inspiration from ancient Romanian folk themes.

Formed in the 1960s, it began by doing covers of Beatles songs. However, they soon had to change their style since the Romanian communist regime disliked any form of western culture. The communist regime suggested that all rock oriented bands should look for inspiration within the Romanian culture. These restrictions made the band's leader Nicolae Covaci search within the Romanian folklore, which gave them a unique sound.
