Hier hebben we nog zo’n relaxte plaat met Gesner Henry
en zijn Trio Select. Het doet je reeds verlangen naar zwoele
zomeravonden maar daar moeten we nog even op wachten.
Een voorschotje dan maar vast, kachel hoog, luister zelf..

Magnificent. Completely forgot about Coupé Cloué. Thanks for the publication. Hope to see some rare Senegalese LPs in the future.
Wonderful, Moos. Can’t wait to hear the great trio haïtien! Thank you
Thanks for this wonderful LP, i really enjoyed the other one you posted a while back as well. Track number three is sweet. Oakland CA
Discovered the music of Coupé Cloué in the mid 80’s and I was immediately charmed by his warm voice. I had 2 cd’s and if I remember correctly the label was mini records. Since then I didn’t find any reissues in the record shops. So again Moos you do me a big favour by posting this. I will have to wait till Friday to listen to it. I am again more occupied with work then I want to. Life is too short when there are so many goodies to discover. Global groove is really a more than amazing blog. Thanks for sharing this with us Rik
How could anyone fail to mention that the first track is a Kreyol version of the famous Calypso ‘Big Bamboo’ of which there have been numerous versions – most famously by The Mighty Sparrow? Coupé Cloué even sings that in this version of the song.
Personally I think the song has been covered too much so
I decided to leave it be. BTW, it is so very obvious when you hear it
that I felt no obligation to mention that this is the same big bamboo..
thank you for commenting though, if anyone has the right, it is you
Ade, thank you very much for supporting our beloved Global groove..
