Number one is Femi's fast paced, catchy, Motown influenced trademark Afrobeat.

Femi's music in continuing in his fathers tradition,speaks to the social ills in Africa.

It's very jazzy, and I can't stop listening to it; there's just so much to love.

Its hard to say this is Femi Kuti's best album since all his albums have something special to offer. This album is an affirmation of Femi's uniqueness and a testimony to his muscial versatility. My best picks are "Dem Funny', 'You better ask yourself', 'Tell Me', and 'They Will Run'. This album expresses the synergies between Jazz, Funk and Afrobeat and by extension, a collage of different musical styles. Other tracks include studio versions of previously released songs like 'Eh Oh', '1,2,3' and 'Oyinbo'.

Femi's music in continuing in his fathers tradition,speaks to the social ills in Africa. This is without doubt a very commendable work of Afrobeat and a must own Album in the music library of the jazz, funk, afrobeat aficionado.

After seven years there's finally a new studio album from Femi Kuti and The Positive Force. The vibrant live album Africa Shrine (2004) forms the link between the two studio albums as it contains several songs from both. Day by Day also contains several "new" songs that have been part of Femi's live repertoire for the last few years. While 2001's Fight to Win featured several celebrity's from Hip Hop and RnB, this time it's just Femi Kuti and The Positive Force.

For convenience, I'll divide the songs on Day by Day into three categories. Number one is Femi's fast paced, catchy, Motown influenced trademark Afrobeat. These include three exciting studio versions of songs like Oyimbo that were featured on Africa Shrine. At the same time there are also several new songs with very fast paced vocals from Femi and the gang like Demo Crazy.

The second category consists of songs that fall in the jazz-funk category. A good example is Do You Know in which Femi pays homage to his musical heroes (Coltrane, Ellington, his father and others). You Better ask Yourself is another good example. This album is Femi's most extensive foray into Jazz territory so far in his career. Being no Jazz expert myself, I still think he does a great job!

Now you're curious about the third category. Many may think that the term "ballad" doesn't exist in the Afrobeat vocabulary. This may or may not be the case, but Day by Day is a ballad for sure. It's a simple song as far as composition and lyrics are concerned, but at the same time it's a truly beautiful song with a truly beautiful message. It makes a great lullaby.

Day by Day was recorded in Paris in the summer of 2007. Femi is back playing trumpet, and is doing it better than ever.

I bought this album when I happened to decide to check out the local cd store's world music section. I had no idea what I was getting into. I've known and loved Fela for years, and Seun's new album was also great, but Day By Day is something else completely. Kinda. It's very jazzy, and I can't stop listening to it; there's just so much to love. Every song can stand on its own, from the great, catchy, smooth, jazzy, awesome, rhythmic opener Oyimbo to Demo Crazy's crazy beats to One Two's african techno sickness to Let's Make History's optimistic close. Its beautiful...get it now. And see him live. Its great.
