During my hospital stays in 1983-84, my brother
Kim sent me a cassette of King Sunny's Juju Music. Whooaa. I'd
heard a pretty broad range of funky stuff, far more than most of
my friends, but I hadn't ever heard anything quite like
this. Sunny's slick slide style, synths, and (on stage here at
Miami Beach's Cameo Theater) I think a total of 18 performers,
maybe half of them percussionists. Rhythms kept piling up and always
stayed clean, crisp, and very danceable.
(Pronounce "Ade" as ah-day.)
