Michel Boyibanda was one of the singers in Franco’s O.K. Jazz and
on this 1978 re-issue we hear them perform together on at least eight
of the 12 songs. Tracks no. 1,2,11 and 12 are probably not with the
O.K. Jazz. Do we hear Verckys on saxophone ? This LP contains a
great version of the Cuban hitsong ‘Ven y ven y ven’, great cover.
One way or the other, the vinyl of this one is in very good condition,
still some of the numbers sound quite dusty. I guess in 1978 they
did not have the remastering techniques we’ve got today of course.
Another Pathé Marconi / EMI disc selected by Blaise Fayette Mikano.
