You are right Tim, I promised the other les Léopards so
here it is. It has plenty variation in styles like the other
one. Pingouin, cadence, bolero, biguine, compas, rempa
and mazurka take turns on this one. I couldn’t find a year
of release, if anybody knows please tell us too.
Meanwhile give it a few spins, enjoy..

Ryco-Jazz – Fantastique Ryco-Jazz Hit Parade

Ryco-Jazz, front

Ryco-Jazz was founded by Henri Bowane in 1958. The name was
composed from Rythme Congolais, Ry-Co in short. From 1960 to
1964 they toured west Africa and later moved to Martinique where
they were very popular. Their styles varied from tumbele, biguine,
bolero and rumba. Back in Paris in 1971 the group splits up and
spreads. Jean Serge Essous for instance went back to join Les
Bantous de la Capitale..enjoy..
