Product Description

Amazon.com

Mali's one of international music's most fascinating zones, a place where the blues went home to help stir a music that blew the world's mind with Ali Farka Toure, Oumou Sangare, and Boubacar Traore in the 1990s. Then Damon Albarn (of Blur and Gorillaz fame) rekindled the flame in 2002 with Mali Music.

And now, free jazz's greatest trombonist, Roswell Rudd, has created another masterpiece. His horn--wide-bore and fatly swaying blats--mixes magically with Toumani Diabate's kora, Lassana Diabate's balofon, and Basseko Kouyate's ngona to make a wonderland of strings, percussion, and resonant color. Sayon Sissoko's guitar and Henry Schroy's bass lend a structural foundation over which the marimbalike plunks dance and Rudd's horn pliably fills space with broad, full-blown clouds, an ideal, unexpected expander of all that's going on around the trombonist. Monk's "Jackie-ing" has a structure that Toumani's kora thrives in, with canyons where the strings make a phenomenal, rich showing. It's the more traditional stuff that has Rudd thriving, always with such sureness that he sounds as if he's played Malian music all his life. But still: you won't believe the adaptation of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony's "Ode to Joy" as it forms the launch pad for the set-closing "Malijam." --Andrew Bartlett

The last couple of years have seen a great number of crossover albums. Not all of them are very good, but this one certainly is.

Here, the jazz trombonist Roswell Rudd has teamed up with the kora player Toumani Diabaté. At first it sounds a bit strange to hear a trombone in this setting, but I've listened to this album repeatedly and it has really grown on me ; I think the music is fascinating. 'Jackie-ing', in particular, is one of the most interesting versions of a Thelonious Monk composition I've heard in years. 'Sena et Mariam', on the other hand, is so gentle and beautiful that it almost made me cry.

Perhaps, not as accessible or as good as the collaboration between Farka Touré and Ry Cooder but this is definitely a very good CD. Were it not for the rather silly Beethoven coda, I would have given 5 stars - as it stands I give 4.5/5.

Enjoyable, I liked it, very nice. Mali has more great musicians per capita than Brazil. Buy it today, buy two.

A local radio show here in Sarasota played the supposed "Bamako" cut from the Malicool album. I ordered the CD. The cut on the CD was NOT the same cut played on the radio.
A complete disappointment.
Of interest, the Amazon site showed two exact versions of the Malicool CD, one at $14 and the other at $18. I purchased the $14 version. After all, the site indicated they were the same, even the cover of the CD.
Oops.
