SWISS & FUNKY

BARONE-BURGHARDT ORCHESTRA
MAIDEN SWITZERLAND   
LP Discovery Records  - Switzerland, 1978


OK, I'm cheating, this is not my rip, I've DL it a few of years ago from a blog (can't remember which one but it seems it's no longer there. So many good blogs have vanished). 
The reasons I repost it are many:
(i) it's a great record that deserved to be heard, 
(ii) it's a Swiss album and there ain't many funky Swiss big bands around, 
(iii) it features Pierre Cavali on guitar and Alan Skidmore on tenor, two musicians I'm especially fond of. It also features Sal Nistico, who'sa  great tenor too, pianist Peter Jacques, drummer Pierre Favre and some lesser known but no  less talented Swiss players.
(iv) Bumper Thumper is an absolute killer!  And the rest ain't bad either.

The details are taken from Discogs:

    1. Thanks to Gerard & Brian. I was familiar with the old Blue Horizon album, my introduction to Larry Johnson. Actually Blue Horizon introduced me to a lot of great bluesmen in the late 60s. I'll be eternally grateful to Mike Vernon. Cheers
