Album Review

Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band – “Very Best Of, The” – [Rca Records]

humana   7/13/2012   CD, Soul

This compilation disc is like the soundtrack to a tropical escape film–I challenge you to sample it and remain still and dour. The calypso rhythms will get you moving and the quirky lyrics will put a smile on your face. There’s a big band sound (20-piece horn and string arrangements) as well as an infusion of Afro-Cuban and Latin percussion, tied together amazingly smoothly by the captivating voice of Miss Cory Daye. Find here the famed “Cherchez La Femme/Se Si Bon” (6) and “I’ll Play the Fool” (1). Revel in the vibes of “Sugar Coated” Andy Hernandez (8). Only the most curmudgeonly will be able to resist this upbeat offering. Throw away those anti-depressants and soak up the “Sunshower” (3) and smile!
