Jazz, Jazz, Jazz

"I heard about Seif Abu Bakr and The Scorpions maybe 3-4 years ago. Their album "Jazz, Jazz Jazz" ended up on my radar because of an eBay auction with the bids eventually rising daily up to a staggering 1000$.

Artist: The Scorpions & Saif Abu Bakr

Genre: African Funk

Label: Habibi Funk

Release date:


The music is a unique combination of incredible horn arrangements powerfully performed, a vigorous drummer contributing a funky backbone and Seif's vocals uniting those elements. The results range from instrumental tracks awaking memories of 1970s crime thriller soundtracks to more Sudanese-rooted tracks, a lot of them modernized versions traditional rhythms of the diverse regions of Sudan and even an excursion into Colgolese Soukouss.

The re-release was produced with a clean copy of the vinyl version as a source. The original reel tape of the album stayed with Saif Abu Bakr along with another reel with other recordings that were never released. Unfortunately it was lost when Saif Abu Bakr had to flee to Kuwait temporarily during the second gulf war when Iraq raided Kuwait. Both the CD and vinyl version come with extensive booklets with photos, interviews, liner notes. The vinyl version also has a DL code."
