Third album by The Kinky Coo Coo’s after more than one decade devoted to Jamaican rhythms, an unmistakable sound ranging from instrumental Ska classics like ‘Salvador’ or ‘Black Love’ (tribute to the Brazilian Carnival), the vocal Rocksteady duets like ‘Good Vibez’ and the hypnotizing Reggaes like ‘Keep’ Reggaes Nose Out’. But TKCC’s are not limited to Jamaican rhythms and leave patent their predilection for hybrids with American Funk and Soul music, firing bombs like ‘From Stem To Stern’, ‘Hokusai Girl’ or ‘Quiny Boy’, and decisively step with slower Rocksteadys like ‘Jack Tar On Dry Land’ or ‘Hand Baggage’. The new album, which is titled as a “melting pot” taken from the instrumental Ska ‘Sweet Aretha’ and the tracks from their 2012 single with Alex Désert & Greg Lee (Hepcat). Their brand new album features both musical and compositional maturity of a nine piece band that has performed on the major European cities stages.
This album is not just the band’s consolidation as the pioneers in their own style, but the evolution of a sound that makes them unique. From their 60‘s Ska and Rocksteady roots, passing through some other black music influences. With this new album the band goes a step forward in today’s Jamaican music scene.
