Andre Tanker Five: Afro Blossom West (LP, 180g Vinyl)

Very rare LP album, originally released 1969 on the local Atman label from Trinidad with the catalog number 151.
Innovative mixture of different Caribbean and US-American musical styles, Latin Jazz, Funk, Calypso and Folk.
Andre Tanker - vibes, vocals. Clarence Wears - guitar.
Clive Bradley - bass. Kester Smith - drums, timbales, vocals.
Produced by Herman Hadeed & Andre Tanker, with new liner notes by Ron Reid.
180-gram pressing, plastic inner sleeve, gatefold cover.
Strictly limited to 1,000 copies.

When this album was first released in 1969, the young combo around vibraphonist and singer Andre Tanker conveyed a new style mix, which apparently naturally merged quite different musical influences into a new whole. At the centre of the music of the Andre Tanker Five was jazz in its Caribbean, Trinidadian style, a combination of the modern jazz of those days and the sounds of the extremely popular steeldrum bands of the time. A very decisive addition is typical for Trinidad: Calypso. Calypso stands for the attitude to life of this young generation of musicians, for the 'Good Time Feeling' and the desire to incorporate danceable Caribbean rhythms and Afro-Latin grooves into their individual style. 

Although the original sounds of the young Andre Tanker Five are deeply rooted in the music of the West Indies, Afro-American elements always remain in the foreground. The young combo is musically equally at home in the Caribbean as in the 'hip' jazz clubs of the US megacities and the juke joints of the south with their sultry blues as well as the soul dance halls in Detroit or Memphis. The combination of vibraphone and electric guitar plus bass/drums is also rather unusual in those days. Not a pure instrumental album, 'Afro Blossom West' delivers some surprising vocals - rather unusual for a groove-jazz-based project with a sophisticated rhythmic sound.    

Bandleader and vibraphonist Andre Tanker is considered a very creative and versatile musician. His exciting improvisations are a dominant feature of this group. Party In The City, Lena and Swahili are original compositions of which he sings the first two himself. Guitarist Clarence Wears is a gifted accompanist and effective soloist. His sometimes 'funky soul style' is more reminiscent of 'Memphis' than 'Trinidad'. Bass player Clive Bradley, who also plays piano and guitar, is a fine all-round musician who knows his music to the limit, and the rhythm section around Kester Smith (drums and timbales) and Mikey Coryat (congas) are able to provide the necessary power, but they can also play softly and subtly when the mood demands it.

As the album's name suggests, the combo refers deeply to the music and rhythms of Africa, whose roots - when shifted to the West - have produced the calypso, blues and Afro-Latin rhythms heard on this LP.

We have had the album reworked from the original master tapes for this limited high quality LP edition by mastering expert Tom Meyer. New liner notes by Ron Reid shed light on the history of Andre Tanker, his combo and the circumstances that led to this creative product!

André Michael Tanker

André Michael Tanker wurde am 25. September 1941 in Woodbrook, Port of Spain auf der Insel Trinidad geboren. Er gilt als Begründer des karibischen Folk-Jazz-Genres und als einer der originellsten und einflussreichsten Musiker seiner Heimat. Manche vergleichen seine Bedeutung für Trinidad & Tobago mit jener Bob Dylans für US-amerikanische Musik. der Gitarre und dem Cuatro und gründete einige kleinere Combos, die auf Parties spielten. Daraus wurde André Tanker & The Flamingos, die u.a. Im Trinidad Hilton auftraten. Tanker entwickelte ein großes Interesse an Jazz und nennt als bedeutenden musikalischen Einfluss den kubanischen Percussionisten Mongo Santamaria.
In den Sechzigerjahren veränderte sich sein Weltbild, Tanker wurde politischer und verknüpfte seinen Jazz mit Musik aus der Karibik. Er schrieb kritische über die Befreiung und das Schwarze Bewusstsein. Er begann, sich für Orisha-Musik und afrikanisches Schlagzeug zu interessieren, arbeitete mit Andrew Bedrohe und wurde ein Orisha-Priester. 
Es folgen Jahre, in denen er sich mit indischer Musik beschäftigte und u.a. mit dem lokalen Sitar-Spieler Mungal Patasar zusammenarbeitete. Mit ihm zusammen lieferte er den Soundtrack zu dem Spielfilm ’Bim’, der erst zweiten auf Trinidad produzierten Spielfilm. Er lieferte 1972 die Musik  für das New Yorker Shakespeare Festival.
André Tanker starb am 28. Februar 2003. Sein großer Einfluss ist auf Trinidad nach wie vor deutlich spürbar.

Cooles Album - Mix aus Modern Jazz und Calypso

Besten Dank für die Neuveroeffentlichung dieses Albums. Stand ganz oben auf meiner Suchliste. Ist im Original kaum zu kriegen und wenn dann teuflisch teuer. Ganz großes Kino.
