Cult Of Marius

Marius Cultier - Ouelele...Souskai Fiesta 360 066 (1975)

This famed pianist was born in Martinique and when as a teenager he began touring the Caribbean & French Antilles participating in various events & contests it wasn't long before he gained notoriety from his peers. At 20 he shifts to Canada where his fame there allows him to promote the young jazz talents of the Antilles.

This album, cut in France has become somewhat of a cult latin jazz masterpiece - and whilst retaining that West Indian flavour is infused with the lateral jazz expressiveness of the day and a compulsive funky flare that is irresistable on the dancefloor. Don't miss the percussive fusion bomb 'Diamant', a true tour de force...

1) Ouelele
2) Missie Sirop
3) Diamant
4) Laini
5) Souskai
6) Ni Tellement Longtemps (Eh Oui Doudou)
7) Gade Boudin Madame
8) Rezouk Souvenir
