Favorite Recordings presents their new compilation series Fusion Global Sounds with a first volume selected as always by Charles Maurice. 9 rare and hidden tracks produced between 1970 and 1983 in various parts of the world.
Available on June 3rd 2022 as Tip-On Vinyl LP with Printed Innersleeve & CD.
As a fine collector of Jazz-Funk and Fusion for many years, Charles Maurice selected some of his favorite forgotten productions, as he previously did for the AOR Global Sounds, French and Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds compilations series.
This time, recordings come from Sweden, Switzerland, South Africa, New Zealand, Uruguay, Spain and France, from artists and bands mostly known in their local scenes. You’ll hear here the best elements of the Fusion and Jazz-Funk genre: breezy vocal arrangements reminding Flora Purim in Return To Forever or George Duke’s albums, sweet and virtuosic Fender Rhodes (kind of common thread of the comp), melodic spiral-shaped fuzzy synthesizers leads, or irresistible basslines, altogether bringing a unique groove to life.
