One of the great still living members of Ok Jazz is Franco's son-in-law 'Prince' Youlou Mabiala.
He was one of Kasongo's favourite artists. After listening to his albums in Kasongo's collection he is becoming one of mine.
This album Carte Postale features his group Kamikaze Loningisa, one of the few bands who I think can rival OK Jazz in terms of the sound they could create.
This album is simply wonderful.
It was posted on Globalgroovers before but their old links have been taken down.
So here it is for anyone who has not got it. This is ripped from a CD not the original vinyl, so there are no vinyl pops, scratches or hisses. I like the CD cover which is quite different to the original vinyl cover which I placed below it!
