Marvellous Boy celebrates the West African counterpart of the 1950s Soho scene uncovered in our series London Is The Place For Me.
Issuing from centuries of to-ing and fro-ing between England, the West Indies, and West Africa, the same musical styles - calypso, highlife, jazz - overlap, proliferate, and adapt, with local traditions freshened up and thrown into the mix. The inter-war dance bands of British West Africa are often strikingly similar in sound to Trinidadian orchestras like Lovey's String Band (credited with the first calypso recordings, in 1912).
However, the first West African calypso recordings in the modern style are from Freetown, Sierra Leone in the early 1950s, by Ebenezer Calendar and Famous Scrubbs. In arrangements blending African and European instruments, the brass plays out the legacy of colonial military bands, albeit hair-down and a little ramshackle now; and the beautiful creole lyrics are as upful, quick, current, musical and intimate as any classic calypsonian's.
Decca also organized the first calypso recording session in Ghana, down the coast, where a sound interchangeably designated 'calypso' or 'highlife' ruled urban dancefloors, courtesy of The Tempos - fronted here by Julie Okine - and its spin-offs The Black Beats, The Red Spots, and finally The Rhythm Aces. By the early 1960s, calypso was fading in West Africa. US soul and rhythm and blues were poised to replace Caribbean influences, even as there was also a turn towards more traditional, local, African musical material. Tracks include: Famous Scrubbs Poor Freetown Boy Bobby Benson And His Combo Taxi Driver (I Don't Care) Chris Ajilo And His Cubanos Ariwo Roy Chicago Olubunmi Mayor's Dance Band Bere Bote Steven Amechi And His Empire Rhythm Skies Nylon Dress Ebenezer Calender And His Maringer Band Fire Fire Fire Famous Scrubbs Scrubbs Na Marvellous Boy Godwin Omabuwa And His Sound Makers Dick Tiger's Victory Rolling Stone And His Traditional Aces Igha Suo Gamwen E.T. Mensah And His Tempos Band The Tree And The Monkey Bobby Benson And His Jam Session Orchestra Calypso Minor One Ebenezer Calender & Maringer Band Cost Of Living Nar Freetown Ebenezer Calender & Maringer Band Me Nar Poor Old Man Nor Do Bobby Benson And His Combo Gentleman Bobby Victor Olaiya Yabomisa Sawale The Rhythm Aces Mami Ebenezer Calender And His Maringer Band Arria Baby.
