Makossa Man

For the six months I've slowly been adding to my growing Manu Dibango collection. The saxophonist that brought us "Soul Makossa", in time, has become one of my all-time favorite artists. With that being said, I was very excited to pick-up a copy of his 1973 Makossa Man album during my recent trip to New York. When it comes to a Manu Dibango record, you really can't go wrong, especially if your into that afro-jazz funk groove that Dibango mastered so well during the early 1970's. With his solid follow-up to the Soul Makossa record, Dibango basically begins where he left off by putting down some funky cuts like "Pepe Soul", "Mwasa Makossa", and "Senga". For those that fell in love with Soul Makossa, this is the perfect follow-up record, providing the same kind of "Makossa" punch from start to finish. Overall, it was a nice find to add to my ever-growing Manu Dibango collection.
