The second part of the Jacob F. Desvarieux anthology on Endless Flight brings three more productions of the fabled french zouk veteran..The song “sika” by georges dÃ©cimus, bass player of desvarieux’s band kassav, features outer-national synth works driven by salsa-like percussions and sweet steel-drum melodies, dancing around the seducing zouk guitar chords of desvarieux.
A truely moving psychedelic zouk gem, that is for the first available on vinyl only since its release on georges dÃ©cimus’s solo debut mini-album “la vie” in 1983.
The second song “AvÃ¨ou Doudou” was firstly released in 1985 and was written by the Martinique born zouk star and former kassav keyboarder Jean-Claude Naimro. his tune spreads feathery synth-laden caribean boogy vibes, enlarged by his tempting voice and more zouk guitar magic by Desvarieux.
The third gem comes from the zouk pioneer Patrick Saint-Ã©loi, listens to the name “Do bay lan main”, was never re-released since 1984, features the former kassav singer Saint-Eloi on the microphone, electric piano, organ and mini moog and gets once again softly heated by Jacob F. Desvarieux’s enchanting zouk guitar virtuosity.
