Daz-I-Kue & Tempo – Crash Boat Party

After last year’s acclaimed BB Boogie album “Standing On The Wall”, Darren Benjamin aka Daz-I-Kue returns with this incredible slice of Latin Jazz Futurism.

Between 2012 and 2016 Daz travelled to Puerto Rico to record with an array of talented musicians, laying down the framework percussion, bass and horns to be worked on when he returned to his studio in Atlanta.

“Crash Boat Party” is his collaboration with ex Fania All Stars percussionist Hector “Tempo” Alomar and features Atlanta-based trumpeter Dashill Smith, (who’s worked with Roy Ayers, Janell Monet, and Miguel Atwood-Fergurson to name but three), and accomplished bassist Mamaniji Azanyah.

The single is backed with “Esto Es Candela Con Ritmo Nene”, also from those sessions, taking things firmly into Bruk-Jazz territory.
