Estonia’s Estrada Orchestra are a funky jazz combo that blends the best of groups the The James Taylor Quartet with the soundtrack to the old Starsky & Hutch TV series.
One of the 70’s greatest funk albums didn’t come from the United States, Great Britain, Germany, or even Africa, for that matter. This gem came from Montenegro, which was then part of Yugoslavia, and it came from a very fruitful period Janko Nilović had from 1968 to 1978.
My Facebook friend, Rididillo Theitalian, has long been a source of wonderful music for me. She goes down memory lane to dig up The Sofa Surfers, an Austrian project mixing trip hop, dub and acid jazz together flawlessly.
