Reissue of this rare album by Manu Dibango, the Afro-soul maestro! These files were recorded in 1971, when Manu was experimenting with all genres somewhere between soul, jazz and Afro-funk, with a hint of Latin clave. These recording sessions included the best of the French soul scene at this time, Yvan Julien (trumpet), Slim Pezin (guitar), Jacques Bolognesi (trombone), Lucien Dobat (drums), Emile Boza (percussions, Manfred (bass) and the master himself at the vibraphone, marimba, saxophone and organ. This album is a wonderful return to the future for Afro-soul aficionados!
