The Karl Hector Show - Part 2 (side B)
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) Now Again, 2009-01-28
Our Stones Throw/Now Again Records Special never ends... Here's the second half of Karl Hector's Afro-Jazz selection. I've already said it, but If you still haven't heard the 'Sahara Swing' album from Karl Hector and The Malcouns (alias the Poets Of Rhythm), you know what you have to do... And don't forget to download the first 30mn slice of this "Karl Hector Show Part 2" already up on parisdjs.com since December 2008!
