Afro Beat Techniques

In a nice transition from yesterday's post, here is Jazz Techniques' "Afro Beat". I came across this funky heavy-weight, when I picked up a used copy of the Counterpoint Records released compilation Jazz Bizniz! which features rare and hard-to-find jazz-funk, cosmic soul, and boogie cuts. My favorite track on the record, "Afro Beat", was actually originally released on dance instructional record by dance teacher Lynda Gache. I haven't been able to find out when this actual dance instruction record was released or the artists' that actually contributed to the song. Regardless it's an amazing song that has an overall Afro-funk groove that will definitely get the dancefloor moving. Enjoy!
