I ran into "Bonanza Ska" by Carlos Malcolm over at For the Sake of the Song. Bam! Sucked in again, and it wasn't the first time a glance at something about Malcolm turned into a two hour wormhole. Here's the two that got me started, and one recorded a few years later in New York, that one really funky, and tight. Malcolm did it all. I've heard stuff from all different periods of his career, in all sorts of styles, and I haven't heard a stinker yet, Check his Facebook page for a lot of YouTube audio clips, read the advice he dishes out to particular Facebook visitors (as recently as tonight). This guy doesn't sit around doing nothing.
