Following the recent reissues of Pop Impressions, Super America and Soul Impressions, Underdog Records label follows-up to the series with another brilliant album, Chorus, by French underrated composer and producer, Janko Nilovic. Janko Nilovic certainly was one of the greatest studio talents of Europe in the '70s. He is a musician who devotes himself to music, which resulted in a great number of published works, but most of them made for library music labels and also not available for sale.
"Very groovy work from the legendary Janko Nilovic – a set that's every bit as funky as some of his other records, but one that has a slightly different twist as well! The "chorus" in the title is appropriate – as there's a flurry of wordless vocals in the mix of this one – a group who draw from some surprisingly soulful currents to appear on some of the album's best tracks with a style that's more groovy soul ensemble than other uses of chorus styles at the time! Given the mod styles of the tunes, the whole thing almost feels like some lost funky Galt MacDermot stage production – especially as the lead female singer in the group has an especially great range, and might even be a better-known soul singer working without any credit on the date. Janko's blend of keyboards, basslines, and other instrumentation is wonderful" Dustygroove
