Reissue: Ebo Taylor – Twer Nyame

Ebo Taylor

Via Mr Bongo:

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’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.

Classic highlife sounds; uptempo grooves, vocals, tons of percussion, guitar, horns and organ lines. Stream below.
