This is another hilarious pseudonyme used on FCQ records. According to a legend a finnish peasant named Lalli killed bishop Henrik on the ice of Lake Köyliö somewhere in the 12th century and this is where the name comes from.
This is my first acquaintance with Ben Mitchell's other works than Mr. Hermano and I can only say wow!
The first track "Toda Menina Baiana" knocks you off, being not only up-to-date but still preserving a respect to the batucada. "Que Alegria" is more ... See full review
Even though the cover don't say so, the track "Friendly Night" is actually a version of Cal Tjader's "Triste", a nice one though. "Descarga" is IMHO the true gem on this record, very traditional latin jazz with a housy scent.
By far the finest mashup-like stuff I've ever heard. Gerardo Frisina gives Sabu Martinez' unreleased track a perfect treatment sampling Sahib Shihab's "Seed". Especially the B-side is as groovy as can be.
The first 10" by Five Corners Quintet. Actually this is not 100% live (the same thing with Devil Kicks / Three Corners), the drums and basses are sampled and the names of the drummer and the bassist printed on the record are fictious.
