The African Track
It seems that lately I'm on a Vincent Montana Jr. kick. I just can't seem to get over the brilliance of his music. This gem was released in 1979 proving that there is more to Mr. Montana Jr. by spotlighting African grooves using instruments such as the Cuica, a friction drum used in Africa for lion hunting. Also, there are some amazingly haunting strings and bells making this a far out dance classic. This song was re-released in 2006 with fresh new remixes by Louis Benedetti revamping what was probably a song ahead of its time. I just discovered this song and I'm loving the original! Enjoy!
