'THE BOLEROS OF O.K. JAZZ 1957-77' - On a good day there is nothing more joyful in life than indulging in the Congolese bolero. Of all Congolese bands venturing into the bolero, the O.K. Jazz orchestra is by far the king of this musical style which originated in the late 19th century in Cuba. In its nearly forty years of existence, the illustrious band released dozens of boleros, with beautiful compositions mainly by Franco and Vicky, and occasionally from Mujos, Simaro, Kwamy and Edo
among others. The slow form of the bolero allowed Franco to express his most profound soul stirrings and create a style of his own. With the suave voice of Vicky and the breathtaking
and dramatic guitar touch of Franco, O.K. Jazz was able to capture the true essence of the bolero. Franco's passion for the bolero has certainly contributed to his nickname of 'Franco
de mi Amor', especially among his female fans. The favorite theme in the bolero songs of O.K. Jazz was, without doubt, the joy and pain of love, but it also touches on friendship, city
life in Kinshasa, laments, politics and even advertising for a shoe brand like the remarkable 'Pas Un Pas Sans Bata', the song which inspired us throughout the long process of making this compilation. The selection chronologically presented here consists for a good part of songs, never reproduced after
their original release. Double LP release with 32-page booklet
