TP OK Jazz – Héritage de Luambo Franco
Eau Bénite… Hommage a Luambo Makiadi
Tamaris 1990

TP OK Jazz, front

I was in doubt for a while, the quality of this lp is not that
good, but untill I find a better specimen we’ll have to settle
with this one. It has some pops and sh*t but still.. the songs
about Franco send shivers down my spine. The group he
left behind didn’t vanish with ‘le grand maître’ but kept
making the music that used to be his life..
Madilu, Djo M’poy, N’dombe Opetum,
Josky and Simaro, all present
with the TP OK Jazz.


1 Eau bénite
2 Hommage a luambo-makiadi
3 Ladji-mundele
4 Jacquina
5 Pot pourri
6 Franco luambo

    TP. Ok Jazz Heritage de Franco. Thanks for the great stuff you always post esp on these great sons of Africa.On this particular LP , they misprinted , track 4 should be 5 and vice versa. I also have an LP with nos, 2& 6 only on the entire LP but the sleeve is completely different from the one you have posted. I have tried to photo the front & back cover for you. My copy is in mint condition, If you give me your e mail add I would be more than happy to mail them to you
