Ginger Johnson and His African Messengers
ginger Johnson has long been a cult figure in british African music – and with this reissue it’s easy to see why.
while he was a tutor to a young fela kuti and instrumental to the formation of notting hill carnival we love him for his original blend of Nigerian rhythms with jazz to make a brilliant and addictive combination ending up not far off Buena vista social club in places. a stunning glimpse into this highly influential mind, and a great party record to boot!
