The Koko Mojo Songwriter Series continues with an exploration of the skills of Lincoln Chase during Fancy Dance. The album focuses on and includes alongside the man himself singing, white and black artists, who also sang his compositions, of which numerous versions became hits. The songs are sourced from the years 1953 to 1963 with twenty titles coming from the 1950s, and the album is programmed year by year. Due to Chase’s mixed Cuban and West Indian parentage, some of his sounds have an exotic sound and tempo, and his legacy is weird, wacky, and intriguing.
