11. Sabu- Palo Congo

Release Date: 1957
Label: Blue Note

Louis 'Sabu' Martinez is one of those 'world music' musicians who's likey to have appeared on Later... with Jools Holland had he not died in 1979. He'll have probably have had to make do with one song, whilst Sting gets three. Whatever song they choose, I just hope it isn't 'Asabache' because any track with a bloody long percussion solo isn't worth listening to (e.g. Cream- 'Toad'). The albums had its highlights (the guitar work was particularly nifty at times), but they were outweighed by the erm...lowlights. Call me uncultured, but I just wanted something more western.

Overall: 3/10
Favourite Track: Rhapsodia Del Maravilloso

Next Album: Miles Davis- Birth of Cool
