The Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Big Band was an exciting group, though infrequently recorded, but this Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Sextet date has a much different character. The percussion of Joe Harris, the vibes and bongos of Fats Sadi, and Sahib Shihab's flute are the dominant instruments, providing the calypso flavor that makes up most of the music in this 1965 studio session.

In between the much-acclaimed, epic recordings made by the Clarke-Boland big band, there were a number of memorable small group sessions, featuring key sidemen from the big band, which over the years have tended to be forgotten. This excellent 20-track compilation is largely a composite of two sessions: one recorded in the Alten Bahnhof von Rolandseck in Germany on September 25,1965 and the other recorded in Berlin on June 16, 1965. This is great and very hard-to-find latin-tinged music, enjoy.
