Jobby Valente - Flash Back (Disco-Deal - 1982)


Slept-on zouk/jazz/cadence/reggae album by French actress and singer from Martinique, Jobby Valente. This "Flash Back" features la crème de la crème of caribbean musicians featuring Kassav' members : Jacob Desvarieux on guitar & arrangement, Jean-Claude Naimro on keyboard, Jocelyne Beroard on chorus, Claude Vamur on drums, legendary bassist Michel Alibo. Includes "J'aime Les Bourgeois" a killer modernized electrified cover of her track released as a single in 1976. Another dancefloor sure shot, "Disque La Raye" is also a new version of her hit released on Célini Aux Ondes. "Mi Moin Mi Ou" composed by Eugène Mona is a pure fusion with a super groovy bass. "Il Faut Vivre Au Jour Le Jour" is a nice reggae-chanson, This Lp is the perfect bridge between traditional sounds and modern grooves.
