Various Maiden Voyage: A Journey into the World of Soul and Boogie
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Compost
- XLR8R Rating: 7.5/10
Any party that lasts 15 years in Munich must be doing something right–and the Maiden Voyage night, which has changed venues several times since its 1993 inauguration, does plenty right: The excellent trio that helms the night’s focuses on soul, boogie, disco, and jazz. Now they’ve unleashed a compilation based on the party, full of soulful vocals, beats, and tight horns. There are some usual suspects and familiar names (Roy Ayers and Diana Ross, for example), but a few surprises, as well, like the disco version of “Georgy Porgy” from yacht-rockers Toto. Here’s hoping the trio takes another trip out soon.
