Restoring the recorded legacy of Franco et TPOK Jazz

With this blog we intend to redress the terrible neglect given to the recorded legacy of Franco Luambo Makiadi and T.P.O.K. Jazz.

We intend to post links to albums, eps and singles in their original track listing and where possible, with original artwork.

We will post links to any recordings currently available which have tracks in their original album order.

We would greatly appreciate help in this ambitious project, so if you would like to assist by providing links to recordings you may have posted elsewhere or by sending us files of recordings then we would be very grateful.

If you hold the copyright to any of these recordings please note that no recordings are posted directly on this page and we cannot be held responsible for the content of external sites.

We would also ask you to get up off your asses and properly honour the legacy of Franco and TPOK Jazz by re-releasing all their recordings in the sequences they were originally intended to be heard instead of butchering them like has been done in the past!!!

  1. I am completely thrilled to be discovering this project some two years after you started it. Franco is a huge hero of mine - and I have no Congolese friends or relations (!) I just loved the music from the first time I heard it. Many thanks for this effort I will be sending you some money to assist this truly worthwhile endeavour
