|Ebo Taylor Twer Nyame Limited Vinyl LP
Ebo Taylor is one of Ghana's finest producer/arrangers. Taylor was heavily influential in the unique sound that emerged from the country in the 70 700;s; a combination of traditional Ghanaian with Afro- beat, jazz, and funk rhythms. He worked with bands including Stargazers Band, Broadway Dance Band, Black Star Highlife Band (with Teddy Osei and Sol Amarfio who later joined Osibisa), Apagya Show Band and fellow musicians C.K. Mann, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and the legendary Pat Thomas. 2016 see Ebo celebrate his 80th birthday - still touring! - and we are very proud to release two of his stand-out, classic albums – MY LOVE AND MUSIC and TWER NYAME, following on from the EBO TAYLOR and CONFLICT re-issues. TWER NYAME (Trust in God) was originally released in 1978 on Philips-West African-Records. Classic highlife sounds; uptempo grooves, vocals, tons of percussion, guitar, horns and organ lines.
