Barrel Coppet and Mister Lof – Rhum et Coutelas (Martinique, 1972, Hit Parade)

Anatole “Barrel” Coppet (a saxophone player) and Romuld “Mister” Lof (a singer) were two musicians from Martinique who used to play in the Antilles and in France from the 50’s.

They recorded several album together with great names of the French Caribbean Jazz scene back in the days (as Alain Jean-Marie, who play the piano on this album), and a few singles.

I decided to present you “Rhum et Coutelas”, a sweet jazzy biguine song taken from their first album recorded in 1972 on the great Hit Parade label – enjoy !

Hi everyone !!!
It’s a reaaaal pleasure to be here with you after these 2 months !!!! Sincerely sorry for the delay, too much work (yes I have a job), and just the time for me to dig for my dear readers some records from all over the world : Zambian records, Ethiopian stuff, records from Turkey, Morrocco, Guyana..
So to celebrate the rebirth of this blog, I’ve prepared one (short) selection (yes, from now I will select only 6 records for each mix, to avoid a too long and boring stuff !) of Carribean Biguines and Jazzy tracks from several records taken from the 30’s to the 80’s – Enjoy the ride !
Next week we’ll travel to Mali,
