Mandingo (6)

Profile:
Mandingo is the brain child of British band leader Geoff Love (1917–1991). Having played in Easy Listening bands such as the poetically named Manuel And The Music Of The Mountains before, he decided to go into a totally different direction. With the help of producer Norman Newell (1919–2004), he gathered session musicians around him, got hold of talented song writers and unleashed a highly explosive mixture of exotic drums, gigantic brass layers and electronic devices. While Geoff Love achieved this on every Mandingo album, it is The Primeval Rhythm Of Life where this concept is brought to life.

Mandingo seems to be an studio project of the great Nick Ingman of library and OST music-writer, arranger. Incredibly funky and passionate music is here. Library funk lover's delight.
