BA 4            Orch DO7 Shirati Jazz                            Hippo Pts 1 & 2

Thanks to Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris for supplying details and a scan of this record, which she put on Ebay in March 2011.

This Jaca Productions label looks like yet another outlet for DO Misiani’s prolific DO7 Shirati Jazz, this time being produced by CA Kochomo. Since Misiani’s band changed their name to DO7 Shirati Jazz in 1975, this single must date from later than that.

The label name means “governor” or “ambassador” in Kiswahili. In the context of a record label, perhaps “boss” might be a more appropriate translation.
