Oliver Belz, the man behind The Juju Orchestra, The Bahama Soul Club, regular guests of our 21st Century Latin mixes, is back with another new project, Kojato and The Afro Latin Cougaritas that's as much nu-jazz as it's 60s soul, 70s funk and afro-latin grooves. The Everywhere You Go Now Kuti kinda-tribute to Fela track is disturbing, it's not afrobeat at all, more of a Juju Orchestra latin thing with funky keyboards. Not that it's bad, but doesn't fit anywhere really, even though it should grace many groovy-lounge compilations in the coming months... African music lovers should go instead directly to the second half of the album, with tracks such as Afro Shigida (Original Lagos Cut), a glamourous take on afro-soul-jazz that'll grace our upcoming Bag of Goodies mix recorded last weekend with records labels and artists have sent to us during the last months. All in all this album's full of funky afro-latin-jazz for the modern rare groove dancefloors, just like the previous Oliver Belz productions: classy & smart, with a nice suit & moustache!

Kojato, one of the most promising projects of modern Afro-Jazz, started in 2010 with an amazing feature on the Bahama Soul Club‘s bestseller-album Bossa Nova Just Smells Funky. His first track was called Afro Shigida and was one of the highlights on this release. Producer Oliver Belz, the man behind The Bahama Soul Club and The Juju Orchestra was deeply impressed by the combined talents of the fabulous keyboard player and arranger André Neundorf and the inimitable multi-instrumentalist and singer Kojo Ebenezer Samuels.

Kojo "the priest of music" was born 1943 in Monrovia and became one of the most well known musicians from Liberia when he worked with Fela Kuti and Cecil Taylor.
Belz says: "So what you get from this man is a spirited joyful player with nothing more than sparkling energy. Spontaneous and immediate with a spot on social critism and illuminating stories full of wisdom and truth. He's "All About Jazz", believe me.”

So what‘s the difference between Kojato and other Nu, Club, Afro or whatever-Jazz projects? Kojato is better! Really, simply great music with a colourful sound, combining afrolicious Bossa-Jazz with 70s Funk and 60s Soul out of temporary fashion. It‘s always hard to resist. The positive vibes transcends boundaries, language, colour boundaries. It always moves forward. It's not doing in and out of flavour, - It's just gonna be there.

The first album All About Jazz comes with 10 tracks of finest Afro Jazz that captures the musical spirit of a lifetime. Kojato, a world traveller in Jazz finally brings it all together: Afro, Latin, Soul, Gypsy & World-Jazz.
He obviously knows all the routes Jazz can take and defines a new place the audience can land.
