Fantastic privately released only solo album by José Manclière pressed at 500 copies by this great drummer, native from Marie Galante (Guadeloupe), who performed with Ibo Simon, Les Vikings de la Guadeloupe and most of the band for Gwada. With this Doubout Pou Gadé, José has cooked a really personal record with amazing experimental fusion tracks merging Gwo Ka, Funky Jazz & Biguine, with an early electronic synthetic production. This ultra rare album only distributed in the West Indies has now reached the holy grail status. This is definitely a real masterpiece with beautiful tunes like Syka a terrific synthetic jazz funk hybrid with incredible clavinet, synth and trumpet solos halfway between Placebo and Fabiano Orchestra. Vini Couté E Tann' is the amazing funky biguine we choose to compile on Kouté Jazz with incredible piano and guitar solo respectively by Patrick Jean Marie & Gilbert Coco. Tipi Fanm', is another wicked tune gwo ka percussion laden jazz tune. The rest of this album that features great names of guadeloupean music like Ramon Pirmé, Pierre Edouard Decimus, Herbert Lewis, Roger Coco, Germain Cédé definitely worths the price. Check the 20 mn long soundclip and don't sleep to send a serious offer as I have only one spare copy. Record is strong EX. Cover is strong EX. Essential !
