Tony Allen With The Africa 70 ‎ "Jealousy" 1975




This is the legendary drummer and composer Tony Allen's first solo LP Jealousy released in 1975. He was the musical director and mastermind of Fea Kuti's famous Afro'70. He is still working and performing - in the 2000s he's been involved in different projects with Damon Albarn. The music on Jealoussy is of course very similar to the related seventies nigerian afrobeat of Fela Kuti. Dance dance dance!

Enjoy!

  2. Thanks Aaron. Didn't have this one. IMHO, Tony Allen is one of the funkiest drummers ever. He could even give the mighty Clyde Stubblefield of James Brown's band a run for his money.
