Whats Wrong With Groovin / Send In The Clowns
It’s the fifth 7” in our reissue series, the previous 4 have been met with worldwide acclaim and this record has all the hallmarks and potential of being just as successful! The original US 7” issue of Letta Mbulu ‘What is Wrong with Groovin’ and the Japanese LP from Lorez Alexandria featuring ‘Send in the Clowns’ have seen collectors and DJs around the world throwing their wallets at dealers in attempts to get hold of the originals, but due to rarity and demand few people been lucky enough to see them, let alone own them! So here they are presented for the first time on a double sided 7” for all to hear! At last!
A: Letta Mbulu – ‘What is Wrong with Groovin’
Side one features Letta Mbulu and this catchy tune sways beautifully between jazz and soul. A rounded bass peppered with some cheeky bossa licks and thoughtful piano touches add to the jazzy flavour, but it’s the soulful vocals that are the icing on the cake.
B: Lorez Alexandria – ‘Send in the Clowns’
Lorez Alexandria’s dreamy vocals compliment a quirky horn-led jazz combo in a stunning off-beat uptempo groove. Another highly-regarded tune from the genius that is Lorez Alexandria backed with flawless musicianship that few others can rival.
