Description

We do try every week to make these pages interesting, blog style record reviewing, bringing you some vinyl you may not have been aware of before.

This week its a 1955 Los Angeles creation lifting my senses with compelling Mambo/R&B pulses n' rhythm that has really caught my ear. I knew someone somewhere must be DJing with this magnetic killer. A quick google note the inventive multi-genre DJ in Dan Goldsboro has already hooked into its addictive charms. We feel this freestyle commitment to forgotten lost gems is taking off worldwide, we hope over the coming months we can locate a few more narcotic off-the-wall tunes to feed the growing demand.

California's Jonsey's Combo featuring Fletcher Smith's Squares only made a couple of 45's the other ones being the equally sought after "Sweet Su" backing up vocal group The Starliters.

"Ting Ting Boom Scat " amalgamates Jazz, Latin, Doo-Wop and R&B into one mesmerizing mid-50's dance session you can't help but fall for.. elevated by a sizzling saxophone solo in the middle, accompanied by heavy percussion and latin piano & cowbell thwacks, momentarily parting those rich booming harmonies.
.
This would "fly" in any R&B orientated club, or in any other DJ set that doesn't like to follow the crowd...but pulling from the vast array multi-genres of dance through the decades, to ignite their crowd...

long may it continue...
