This is the 1983 solo album by Coati Mundi, vibraphone player and founder member (along with August Darnell) of Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band and Kid Creole and the Coconuts. The humour, creativity and potent latin-funk grooves associated with those bands are all on proud display on this great album. Listening to this immensely enjoyable and polished record, its easy to forget that these disco groups were part of the same New York Mudd Club scene that spawned artists like Lydia Lunch, Sonic Youth or Nan Goldin. The album features a great cover version of Captain Beefheart's Tropical Hot Dog Night and the (maybe) egalitarian proto-house classic Pharoah (can't take it to the grave) that was included on Strut Records' fantastic Kid Creole compilation last year.
