Mudie’s All-Stars :: Loran’s Dance


When a cover works. In this case, Mudie’s All-Stars Jamaican rendering of Idris Muhammad’s “Loran’s Dance.” I’m scribbling this on a train back to Tokyo after three nights haunting an array of Kyoto hi-fi kissas – mostly jazz, but not all. It was one of the latter, Rub A Dub, that turned me on to the below recording.

A tiny subterranean dub and reggae bar, dimly illuminated by a haze of smoke and candy-colored Christmas lights, the bar’s owner/selector doled out an offering of 45s from a canvas bag while pouring an array of rum and tequilas behind the bar. Enjoy, it’s almost my next stop…
