Candy Girl stands surely as one of the true Holy Grails of Jazz Funk coming out of Europe. Recorded and produced by maverick Producer Pierre Jaubert, the album was never commercially released and was pressed in a quantity rumoured to be no more than 20 copies. Beautifully reissued by Libreville and sold out everywhere. We probably have the last two copies available in the UK outside the Discogs shark pool.
All tracks, composed by unsung hero Mal Waldron are backed by the key members of the famous Lafayette Afro Rock Band who gained cult status notably by being heavily sampled by the great names of the rap game: from De La Soul to Wu-Tang Clan, through Nas and of course Jay-Z among many, many others...
The album consists of five pieces going from deep jazz funk to modal soul jazz even to uplifting jazz ballad, all sharing the profoundness of Mal Waldron's sensibility.
Crafted in true 70s private press spirit, the record comes in a beautiful tip-on cover with pasted DIY paper on front and back.
