Cherry on the cake : the cover is designed by another great Martinican legend : the musician & poet Joby Bernabe – Enjoy !

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 !
