Fruits of the astounding encounter between a forgotten ‘70s Jamaican legend and a young Swiss band, "A Little Walk" marks the return of I Kong at the forefront of the stage.
This ten-track showcase album was recorded in Kingston, in the purest roots tradition by Najavibes’ musicians, accompanied for this special occasion by ranking guests such as Scully Simms on the percussions, Dalton Browne on the lead guitar, and Sting Wray on the horns section. The powerful rhythm section and the melodic richness, mingling perfectly with I Kong’s lamenting voice, come together to form a whole, subtly mixed by the unoverlookable Roberto Sánchez.
Through "A Little Walk", I Kong revisits various topics that matter to him. This accomplished and eclectic album is both a tribute and a continuity of his 1979 splendid album The Way It Is.
To be released on LP next 13th of April 2015 !
Unmisseble release, an absolutely instant classic !
