jossy masse – st (inter caraibes, 1971) album

Singer Josy Masse hails from Guyana, where she recorded this, her debut album, in 1971. Helped by bandleader Al Lirvat and his quintet, Josy sways through ten brazenly melancholic tracks filled with something very close to the beautiful Portugese term saudade. The generous use of woodwinds adds extra breeze to the tracks, and before you know it, you’re very far away from the urban here and now.

NB: this is my first album rip in a long time, and I’ve changed my technical set-up. All feedback re: sound quality is welcome.
