  1. Moos, thanks for this bantou de la capitale recording. I appreciate the introduction of the members, helping us know their names. I read that back in the day, bantou de la capitale and TP OK jazz periodically exchanged musicians. Again , thanks.

  2. Thanks Moos – I especially love your Congolese sounds, and I check the site regularly for any such postings. This is a little bit of magic. If I can be cheeky and make a suggestion – do you have any Maquisards stuff that you haven’t posted yet?
