Bola Johnson – “Buroda Mase”

If I can fill you in on this song while I wait here at the airterminal…

 It’s a dub-style dance tune, where the drummer sounds toward the end
of every measure as if he’s just nodded off to sleep for a quick
sixteenth beat. Bola sings the verses lightly with the bass playing in
front of the trap drums, and a little bit of rhythm guitar and a
little bit of lead guitar.

 On the choruses, Bola has a pretty forceful voice, and you can tell
that he learned from the James Brown school of funk. While the trumpet
plays, you can imagine him vogueing from side to side.
