Taylor, Ebo

Life Stories : Highlife & afrobeat classics 1973-1980 / Ebo Taylor

[London] : Strut Records, 2011

Abstract: Following his recent studio album with Afrobeat Academy, 'Love And Death', his first international release, Ghanaian highlife guitar legend Ebo Taylor teams up again with Strut for a long overdue definitive compilation of his seminal 1970s recordings, 'Life Stories'. This compilation revisits this heyday of Taylor's work, focusing on his solo albums and some of his lesser known side projects including the dynamite Apagya Show Band and short-lived Taylor-led combos Assase Ase, Super Sounds Namba and The Pelikans. The selection also touches on his writing and production work for C.K. Mann and a collaboration recording with fellow member of early ‘70s nightclub band Blue Monks, Pat Thomas.

Tassili : +10:1 / Tinariwen

[S.l.] : V2, 2011

Abstract: Tinariwen, the Malian Touraeg group, finally broke through to Western audiences with 2007's Aman Iman and 2009's Imidiwan -- culminating in an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival -- 20 years after their inception. The increased profile did little to alter their "desert blues" with its incantatory droning -- primarily electric -- guitars, claps and organic percussion, and chanted vocals in songs about struggle and independence (some of Tinariwen's members were once rebel guerilla fighters). That sound comes out of a nation that exists between the harsh Sahara and the lush African savannah to the south, but it has less in common with other Malian musicians because the band is nomadic, never staying in one place for long. Tassili, named for the region of the Algerian desert they cut the record in, is Tinariwen's Anti label debut. It is similar, at least structurally, to its predecessors. Tinariwen play their trademark, labyrinthine music on acoustic guitars this time -- a back to basics development in itself. Conversely, they've allowed trusted producers Ian Brennan and Jean Paul Romann some liberties in letting Western musicians participate on some cuts. Opener "Imidiwan Ma Tennam" commences much as their music has in the past, with the guitars and lead vocals of Ibrahim Ag Alhabib to lead his bandmates in a snakey weave of handclaps, chants, and secondary guitars to follow his own. A little later, Nels Cline's electric guitar almost imperceptibly slithers into the mix, with a stunning but blunted array of effects; they take nothing away from the song's essence. "Ya Messinagh" begins as a single riff blues before handclaps and a second acoustic guitar answer it in what is the closest thing to a Delta blues intro that Tinariwen has recorded. Ag Alhabib's soulful earthy vocals are met at the end of the second verse by the sonorous open tones of brass and reeds by members of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. What's amazing is just how seamless their interaction is. On "Walla Illa" and two other cuts, TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone add vocals and guitars; they add a textual element to other cuts while restraining themselves vocally and instrumentally so as not to intrude. These artists may or may not extend the Touareg group's reach into the West. If so, they've done so without Tinariwen compromising their sound. These songs are simply Tinariwen doing what they do best: being themselves, albeit more powerfully, not because of the collaborations, but because of the acoustic approach they've taken here. Their sound is dustier, more evocative of the landscape they wander; Tassili is as desolate -- and as timeless -- as the desert itself. (All music)

The definitive collection / Femi Kuti

[S.l.] : Wrasse, 2007

Abstract: Femi Kuti has the unenviable position of being an excellent musician and the undisputed king of Afro-beat, while also being the son of the greatest. Of course, that has tempered his sound over the years to some degree as he distanced himself by adding newer influences such as hip-hop to the classic soul-funk-jazz sound. As time progressed, he has moved into a more "traditional" Afro-beat sound with excellent results. Here, some of the best tracks from his three albums are presented. Two tracks come from the little-known eponymous debut, and a handful from each of his following releases. This is Femi at his best, crossing the divides between classic and modern, contemplative and energetic, hypnotic and pounding. The music is top-notch and the song selection equally excellent, picking out a couple of relative rarities for good measure in "Ala Jalkoum" with Rachid Taha and a star-studded cover of Fela's "Water No Get Enemy" from the Red Hot + series. It's the sheer power of the groove that will get you every time, though -- saxes wailing, drums thumping, and call-and-response vocals forcing everyone to stay in the groove. As an added bonus, a disc of remixes is included; there are fewer vocals but the grooves are extended, if that's possible. ~ Adam Greenberg

Buddha bar : ten years

[S.l.] : George V, 2006

Abstract: This, the first Buddha-Bar CD/DVD, follows the seventh successful Buddha-Bar CD (released in February 2005). The nature theme is one of the major concerns of the 21st century, and it corresponds to the Buddha-Bar spirit. Allain Bougrain Dubourg, known for his TV documentaries about nature across the world, and Arno Elias, whose talent as a composer is also widely recognized, produced twelve pieces of music that lead us on a visual journey through the wild world of nature. A marvelous spectacle of animal and plant life, from dolphins dancing in the waves to tropical forests, to a leopard attack, the DVD is bursting with emotion. The Buddha-Bar team hopes that the beauty of the wildlife depicted will remind us also of its fragility, and therefore, the respect we owe it.
