Review

By now a well-oiled machine, the Strut compilation programme switches attentions to the Caribbean and Haiti in particular with Haiti Direct: Big Band, Mini Jazz & Twoubadou Sounds 1960-1978. The double LP package (which comes with 2CD edition too) was compiled by Hugo Mendez, the Paris-based DJ whose work as part of the Sofrito collective ensures him the perfect position to curate this release in a manner few can match. This impressive collection of tracks documents the country's overlooked musical legacy from the '60s and '70s , going beyond Ra-ra and voodoo stereotypes to trace the development of a unique sound that echoed across the Caribbean. The exploratory package also includes in-depth liner notes and interviews with some of the musicians of the era, with part of the release's profits donated to the Partners In Health charity.
