Editorial Reviews

Having earned effusive critical praise and a long-running top 20 Billboard hit in 1998 with his Atlantic Records debut, In the World: From Natchez to New York, the New York City-based Olu Dara now brews his trademark blend of Delta Blues, Jazz, Afro-Beat and Caribbean influences, this time around throwing in a heavy dose of funk into the mix. Throughout the album, his warm, natural voice--reflective of his Natchez, Mississippi birth place--gives life to his imagery-filled lyrical stories, from the cinema celebration of "Bell and Ponce (at the Movie Show)" to his melancholy cover of the traditional Bahamian sailor's lament, "Out on the Rolling Sea." Songs: Massamba, Neighborhoods, Herbman, Strange Things Happen Everyday, Bell and Ponce (at the Movie Show), I See the Light, Out on the Rolling Sea, Bluebird, Used to Be (with Cassandra Wilson), Red Ant (Nature), Tree Blues, In the World.

Indeed Neighborhoods picks up right where Natchez left off but on first listen I was disappointed. It took three complete playings for me to be converted into a believer. Now, I'm asking "Who shot John-man" and looking for alabama cornbread to dip in my georgia buttermilk! This album lacks the raw trumpet power so beautiful in the first album in favor a more polished, production oriented, modern blues sound. But the extremely clever lyrics and african-caribbean-Natchez-New york eclecticism will literally send you reeling. Buy them both and by all means...see a live show.

This is a brilliant CD. I have had it for a while and just heard a cut on the local public radio station so I went on line to add his previous CD to my wish list for Fathers' Day. It's a shame he hasn't recorded more. He's and excellent, eclectic songwriter, vocalist, guitarist and trumpter fronting a slick but rootsy band that incorporates blues, funk, world beat and jazz. The lyrics are full of humor and evocative details. Yes, there are some similarities to Taj Mahal but it's not at all derivative.

This album is a rich and varied musical feast. The title track, Neighborhoods, especially, is simply magical. Dara's masterful eclecticism of blues, funk, soul, and so on, is quality to core. Don't hesitate. ...but that's Como!

I first heard olu on the radio show world cafe.org, i was blown away. The different influences come shining thru...blues, world, funk...man this guy is incredible.......I have an extensive music collection covering all genres and olu has occupied a spot in my 5 disc changer for months. I have let friends listen to this and they are all blown away......My words can not truly express how awesome this album is from song 1 all the way thru.......I jsut ordered the natchez album and can't wait to hear it......Thanks OLU and thanks to david dye at world cafe for introducing me to this musical genius.........If you don't buy this album you are passing up a truly incerdible disc!!

Neighborhoods picks up right where Natchez to New York left off. Olu Dara continutes with his soulful themes and bluesy gituar. This album is a perfect compliment to his previous works and will hold your attention from the first song to the last. At times the album can get a little slow and tedious but Olu Dara's soulful voice keeps you caught up in this excellent album.

I cannot say enough great things about this CD. It is a rare thing these days to run into an entire CD that is worth the money. Each song is special and unique. Each song is filled with heart and proves to engage the listener into a world that one only dreams about. My favorite song on this CD is, "Tree Blues." It is the perfect closing song.
