AFI USUAH, MARY - EKPEYONG ABASI (LP)


"A stupendous blend of scintillating highlife, smoking Fela and spaced-out, funkdafied Black Jazz, from 1975 - Mari Affiong Usuah from Oron town, by way of Calabar in southeastern Nigeria, fronting a knockout band led by Daniel 'Satch' Asuquo from the Atomic 8 (and formerly of Bobby Benson's orchestra). The Afrofunk cuts are especially killer - with James Brown just percolating through by the end - but it's a stunning, magnificent album, through and through. Beautifully sleeved, too, with excellent notes by Uchenna from Comb & Razor." (label info)
