Caribbean Sextet - Caribbean News ( Delta Records - 1982)


Fantastic underrated album by haïtian jazz combo Caribbean Sextet. The whole album is splendid easily fusing classic compas rhythms with funky jazz. Tunes like "Rechanye Lot" "La Peson'n" or "Libete" are just perfect exemple of how underrated this album is. Check also my favorite tune "Tante Nini" composed by Boulo Valcourt with superb vocal by Robert Benjamin, catchy horns section and fantastic synth hook by band leader Réginald Policard. The whole album is good if you are into haitian jazz. Really reminds the Gérald Merceron's masterpiece Bokassa Grotraka !

Perfect Sealed copy. (not the one featured here).
