Mandrill is one the greatest Funk Bands of all time. The nucleus of the band are the multi instrumentalist Wilson Brothers, Carlos, Louis, Ric and Wilfredo ‘Wolf’ who were born in Panama but raised in Brooklyn NY along with Claude ‘Coffee’ Cave.

In the early 70’s their sound was very unique, fusing street funk, with Latin rhythms, jazzy overtones, great melodies and soulful vocals. Their Polydor albums from the early 70’s were ground breaking and had great energy and sincerity to the music, and the lyrics often had environmental and humanitarian consciousness.

The two albums contained on this CD ‘New Worlds’ from 1978 and ‘Getting In The Mood’ from 1980 have a more soulful sound to their earlier albums which were more Funk oriented. ‘New Worlds’ contains the popular modern soul dancer ‘Too Late’, while ‘It’s So Easy Loving You’ is a beautiful dancer with great melodies and harmonies. ‘Stay Tonite’ has more energy but again its those so soulful vocals that really make this such a great track. ‘Getting In The Mood’ includes the dancer ‘Feeling Good’ another uplifting track, the popular ‘My Kind Of Girl (My Girl)’ and ‘Getting In The Mood’ a fantastic haunting mid tempo track that has layers of sound and highlights the soulful vocal harmonies on which Mandrill excelled on this style of track. - Soul Brother
