Boomkat Product Review:
Soul Jazz explore Calypso in its many forms - from its birthplace, the island of Trinidad, as well as other Caribbean islands (Jamaica and The Bahamas) and its subsequent onwards journey (Britain, Panama and the United States), recorded during the years 1955-69. Calypso’s aristocracy and royalty - Lord Kitchener, Lord Cobra, Lord Growler, King Fighter, Lord Byron, The Mighty Viper, Lord Ivanhoe and more are all present, their songs vividly capturing the popular news stories and fashions of the era - the first man on the Moon, James Bond’s Pussy Galore, bed bugs, voodoo, love in cemeteries, West Indians in England, Bossa Nova, the Iron Curtain, and a white man who had a black heart transplant operation.
