Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra Che Che Cole
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Daptone
Brooklyn Afrobeat kings go the Latin route by saluting Fania Records singer Hector Lavoe with this remake of his top moment, 1969's "Che Che Cole" with Willie Colon. It's all about razor-sharp horn section lines, giant percussion and the capable vocals of the lovely Mayra Vega. The flipside rocks a Dibango-ish makossa version of the same tune. Both versions are solid-don't hesitate on this.
