Image: 1616306 Session bassist Louis Villery formed African
Music Machine in the 1970s as an
eight-piece outfit of instrumental funk, which
would gradually become the house band of
the Jewel/Paula record label. Their distinct
style of performance blended the classic
sounds of deep funk music with their own
New Orleans creole influences, and made its
way onto singles and releases by Fontella
Bass, Roscoe Robinson, Bobby Patterson,
and many more. It was Patterson's own
subsidiary label Soul Power which released
African Music Machine's own singles from
1972 to 1974. These singles would provide a
well of material for beatsmiths, and would
later be compiled into a collection titled Black
Water Gold. Highly recommended for the
70s-era James Brown maven in your life.
