Candido - Drum Fever


One of Candido's funkiest albums! The record's got a similar sound to Candido's great albums for Blue Note and Solid State — with short, hard funky tunes that have a really great 70s edge! Chico O'Farrill did the arrangements, and the record chops along nicely with some very funky tracks that feel like they were lifted from a blacksploitation soundtrack — conga mixed with great keyboards, wah wah guitar, and tight blasts of horns in just the right bits! The whole thing's a killer — filled with heavy funky 45-type numbers. Very nice!
