Dan Satch & the Professional Atomic '8' Dance Band

The name of the band would be enough for me, but there's music too. Dan Satch was a Nigerian trumpet player who recorded with some West African dance bands before forming his own band in 1962. For my money, the music sounds like Highlife musicians playing a calypso version of Ornette's "Lonely Woman" ever so slightly out of tune, but maybe it'll conjure up other images in your mind. Take a listen for yourself at Likembe.
