La Confrérie Des Fous was created in 1979 by Laurent Vercambre and common for groups towards the end of the 1970's, their shows consisted of a mix of theater, revue, slapstick and comedy, as well as original music with, just to mention a few, elements of both Rhythm and Blues and Folk. Appearing on stage with as many as 8 people - 12 musicians are to be heard on their only album - the group combined an eclectic mix of music and performance with components found in the medieval carnival-culture. They use violin, hurdy gurdy, viola, dulcimer, and synths to create an almost circus feel.
Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. I have waited a lifetime for this album to be put on CD and I have finally gotten my wish. With Sound Reason is a funky masterpiece of a CD. This CD has really great stand out cuts on it. Georgiana is a great slow to mid-tempo groove that really takes this CD to the stratosphere. Other funky grooves are Come in out of the Rain, Igbob Shuffle, and Boy from Witbank, one of my personal favorites. The other three songs are really nice slower romantic and latin influenced pieces. Sonny Fortune does a great job on this album. Get it if like swinging late 70's jazz. A classic gem of a CD.
The Gap Band II is the 4th album by The Gap Band, released in 1979 on Mercury Records. Contrary to the title, the album is actually the Gap Band's fourth album.
