Mandrill en Quick Remember

La banda de funk Mandrill la formaron en 1968 en Brooklyn, NY los hermanos Ric (saxo, voces), Lou (trompeta, voces) y Carlos Wilson (trombón, voces), que empezaron a ensayar en el salón de belleza de su madre.

Firmaron con Polydor en 1970, pronto editaron su LP homónimo en el que fusionaban ritmos latinos, africanos y de jazz con el sonido psicodélico de la época.

Tras una serie de álbumes de éxito durante la década de los 70, el exitazo del grupo llegó en 1973 con el LP “Composite Truth”, que incluía el single “Fencewalk”. En 1982, grabaron “Montage” antes de disolverse.

    And one of the best funk bands, as others neither popular nor very well known here. I have an anecdote regarding Mandrill, I still remember an Indian guy that came from London for a meeting and do not remember how we ending talking about music. He told me he was a Mandril hooligan, rather than a fan, and was trying to get a work for them and could not find along London, at that time there were no sites like now. Finally I got it for him through my local store (what now is Y que Viva Joplin!), as they imported the stuff from the States, That guy was several years thanking me for that.
