Peter King "Shango" 1974




Peter King was an multi instrumentalist from Nigeria. He moved to England in the early 60s, were he studied, some years later he travel round europe with jazz musicians like Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins and Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Shango were written and recorded (in Camden, London) for brittish television in 1974, but for some reasons it wasn't released untill 2002 when Afro Strut released it on cd, support them here. In 2013 the lovely Mr. Bongo re-release the album on both cd and vinyl (with the artwork above), support them here. The music on the album are incredible groovy, funky soul-jazz with afro and highlife. There are some relly groovy flute work on this one as well. Groovy!

Enjoy!
