Roots of OK Jazz : Congo classics 1955-1956 by OK Jazz (Musical group)( Recording )

"This beautiful 20-song collection -- rereleased as part of the "Congo Classics" series on Crammed that began with "Roots of Rumba Rock" in 2006 -- documents the fine early work of the "Tout-Pouissant Orchestre Kinois de Jazz" or Almighty Kinshasa Jazz Orchestra, as led by the imposing "Grand Maître" Lokanga La Ndju Pene Luambo Makiadi aka Franco ... Recorded the year preceding the official launch of O.K Jazz in June 1956, these tracks provide the last missing elements for a complete discography of this considerable orchestra (more than a hundred LPs, more than a thousand songs); they have been lovingly restored from original 78 rpm record by Vincent Kenis, producer of Crammed's "Congotronics" release series and renowned expert on Congolese music, who also provides extensive liner notes for the compilation."--Producer's website
