Mombasa – Mombasa 2 (African Rhythms & Blues)


Mombasa 2 (African Rhythms & Blues)

Spiegelei ‎– INT 160.049

African Hustle

Groovy Afro-Jazz vocal tune with a interesting brocken beat, my all-time favorite tune on this album.

Mombasa 2

The second and also essential LP of the formation MOMBASA around Lou Blackburn, recorded and mixed April – May 1976 at the “Sound Studio Nedeltschev”, Cologne. Also finest Afro-Funk, a dreamlike combination of Jazz & Soul made in Germany but with a little other line up than on the first album.

Musicians: Don Ridgeway, Lou Blackburn, Alan Tatham, Doug Lucas, Alan Tatham, Bob Reed.
