Best of 2016 Pick 16

Vaudou Game: Kidayu (Hot Casa, 2016).

African James Brown+ and no fucking around.  This record should come with a warning label for folks who work in cubicles, eat frozen pizza, and think Wilco is the bomb.  It’s mostly small ensemble funk but they break out the horns on occasion.  With a special shout to the space organ player who really puts the doobie in this funk.  The vocals are really well done with a great singer and frequent call and response with background vocalists.

Everybody is just smokin’ on this platter.
