The Caribbean roots resonate on each of his albums as on the furious trance of his latest album, with a band directly connected to this part of the world. The London poet and musician who is also a dedicated digger selects five gems from his island, Trinidad. It’s «all about the late 60s soul calypso sound, big band soul»!

Early 80s, in New York, a french producer organizes this session, a kind of freaky electro funk mix : Bernard Fowler meets Nile Rodgers, but also Archie Shepp with Whitney Houston, Bill Laswell and Fred Frith… Time out. RIP Jean Karakos.
