ahouanou jazz - badmos 5009


I know next to nothing about this 1970s Ivory Coast release, but it's a beauty. Modern and ancient, familiar and remote, on vinyl nowhere near as trashed as its cover. Leader/composer Appia Morroh also released records under his own name.

Glad to see you back! I thought you had given up, what with the feds and all.

I didn't lose any files in the great global apocalypse, so I'll leave stuff on this borrowed ground for now, even though its founder's energy, enthusiasm and taste will be greatly missed. The internet has given me an ABSURD amount of extraordinary music, much of it so subterranean I would have had no chance of hearing or even knowing about otherwise, and Lucky literally taught a living antique how to give some back.

Thanks for pointing the way to many a good tune Lucky. An era may come to an end, but new ways will surely open up as long as love (and a little sense as well) is leading.

Thank you. That posts are still happening here makes this a good day.

I too have found an 'absurd' amount of completely obscure and extraordinary music via the blogosphere.

Without caretakers like Lucky and reservatory these artists' works would be disappeared.

Keep up the noble work and many, many good wishes to you!

This is an amazing album, thank you!

Not just an obscure album, but a lot of really good music going on, there. Wonder who was in that band, and for how long it was around?

I agree that this one is special, but for all I know it may be the only Ahouanou Jazz release. Band leader Appia Morroh did release other stuff, including -
