Product Description

Amazon.com

Live! Live Juju! is the King heard the way he should be--recorded live in Seattle in 1987. Considering the 20-piece band was taped through just two microphones, the sound quality is stunning, but it's the music that packs the real knockout here with the frantic and aptly titled "Drumming Interlude" boasting the percussive power of the group. There's plenty of vocal ability onstage too, as the anthemic "Africa and America" shows to great effect. The real highlight, however (apart from "Moti Mo," which appeared--as did Ade himself--in the Robert Altman film O.C. & Stiggs), has to be the opening medley that threatens to explode right out of the speakers and into your room. This is everything you could wish for in a live record, so much so that you might end up cheering along with the crowd. --Chris Nickson

Rarely, one of them recommends an album as so important we should have it in our collections.
John Perry
In the spring of 1983 I had the good fortune to see Sunny Ade and his African Beats live at the Wax Museum in D.C. with a date I'd brought up from Charlottesville.
Glenn R. Urbanas
The recording itself, made on the cusp of the CD age, sounds awesome, with every nuance sounding clear as a bell.

All too often, "popular world music" means "music of other cultures as seen through Western eyes." Happily, this is not the case with "Live Live Ju Ju." Here, the roles are reversed - King Sunny Ade artfully reinterprets several Western musical styles, some which are Africaan-inspired (jazz, blues, raggae) and some that are not (Country-Western, Hawaiian slack-key guitar) - all through the eyes of an African and his impressive band. The songs here all offer just a taste of what this man can do in a popular context. The recording itself, made on the cusp of the CD age, sounds awesome, with every nuance sounding clear as a bell.

In the spring of 1983 I had the good fortune to see Sunny Ade and his African Beats live at the Wax Museum in D.C. with a date I'd brought up from Charlottesville. I knew of his music because the previous autumn his first U.S. album 'Juju Music' appeared and a musician friend told me about it, so I bought it and loved the sound. The Wax Museum concert was probably one of the best I'd ever attended, rating with those of Janis Joplin, Miles Davis, Jefferson Airplane, Thelonius Monk, Ravi Shankar, and Ali Akbar Khan. Essentially the same extended ensemble I heard that evening plays on this album -- three male vocalists/dancers up front, two rhythm guitars, two talking drummers (at opposite ends of the stage accentuating the effect of an increasingly heated conversation), two conventional rock-style drummers, two percussionists, a keyboardist, a bass player (maybe two?), and on lead guitar Sunny Ade. In all about 12 musicians. The talking drum duet that opens this album is one of the best drum 'solos' you'll hear (up there with Blackwell's on the legendary Atlantic 'Ornette' jazz album). After twenty minutes the whole audience (or as much as would fit) got out of their seats and moved close to the stage to dance houlder to shoulder as one by one various members of the audience were allowed to climb onto the stage to shower money over their favorite musicians or plaster onto their perspiring foreheads. After the concert someone came out on stage with a broom and swept up all the bills that littered the floor and everyone left in an elevated state of mind convinced we'd witnessed something great.

I am blessed to have the company of musicians I highly respect in my band. Rarely, one of them recommends an album as so important we should have it in our collections. This is one of those albums. I have had it a month and it has stayed in rotation on my cd player; I have not taken it out.
