JUNGLE JULIE

James Ganeko on conga; Lopaka Colon on dumbek; Rockford Holmes on alto flutes; Noel Okimoto on drums; Perry Coma on piano, and sampled sitar, pattalar, and patwaing.

A glass-bottomed cruise up everyone╩╗s generic steaming jungle river, dedicated to our lithe dancer Julie DeMello.  Ms Julie not only knew from wack, but also was the first of the still-continuing dreamlike parade of stunningly gorgeous Don Tiki dancers to seize the initiative and talk to me, back on the day of that first tentative live show.  Bless her, she instantly cured my decades-long phobic affliction of Footinmouthosis Prettygirlenuensis.   Luvya girl, i do, I do.
