Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Singer-trumpeter-guitarist Olu Dara has been knocking around New York City's jazz circles for almost 20 years. On "In the World" he embraces Caribbean rhythms, African highlife/socca riffs, and gut-bucket blues. Vaguely reminiscent of Taj Mahal's fanciful integration of world music and the blues, Dara consistently straddles urban and rural artistry. Sophisticated yet irresistibly down-home, this collection is festive, tuneful, and engaging. Songs like "Rain Shower" and "Natchez Shopping Blues" are clearly based in the American folk-blues idiom, while "Okra" and "Your Lips" are closer to an Afro-Cuban aesthetic. Dara's warm voice is limited but expressive, and his guitar playing fundamentally percussive. On the other hand, Dara's trumpet is unique and extremely lucid. This album comprises a fascinating tour of several musical cultures. --Mitch Myers

Listen closely and hear a horn player's phrasing in the vocals.
S. S. Sams
In The World is great for just background mood music, yet at the same time is powerful enough that when you sit down to really listen, it'll still grab your ear.
Scott D. Gribble
This cd is just a classic, I have listen to it, at least once a day.

Olu Dara is one of the greatest musicians out there right now. He is painfully underrated. Every single track on this album is perfect, from the street tales of "Jungle Jay"(featuring Olu's son, rapper Nas), to the funky blues of "Rain Shower". My favorite track on this album, though, is "Harlem Country Girl". On this song, Olu plays beautiful trumpet and sings well. Other great tracks include "Okra", "Natchez Shopping Blues", "Your Lips", "Zora", "Father Blues", and all the other tracks. They are all amazing tracks, and I can't wait for more Olu Dara music.

Olu Dara is an excellent muscian and a great live performer. This CD was in my player for months. It captures a mixture of blues, the southern muscial trandition, and new york jazz. Each track is unique and features compelling story lines.

Im fairly young, so I grew up listening to Nas(olu Dara's son). But, out of curiosity, I bought Olu Dara's album. It was really great. I loved the mood or each song. My favorite song of course is the collaboration with Olu Dara and his son. Listening to this album I see where Nas got all of his musical skills from.

Sometimes the music gods give you presents. Olu Dara is one of those.

Olu Dara had played with avant gaurd jazzmen like David Murry, but his solo material is another story. He makes a New Orleans blues that you would have to like only Supercuts music to not understand.

His arrangements are pretty spare--you would think the whole band is playing without amps, though they are. But the blues and soul lines here are so clear, so well cut and crafted, this music comes off incredibly real--as if you just walked to a Big Easy street corner and started digging on these guys. Listen to the fantastic shuffle of "Your Lips," or the understated trumpet of "Harlem Country Girl."

Olu Dara has a rare gift: making music sound polish perfect AND spontainious. It sounds so REAL, but is so well played, you can tell this guy is an amazing musical talent

GET THIS.

I ran across a short review of this album in a German Hi-Fi magazine only recently but something let me know immediately that it is a gem. It arrived here a few days ago and it has rarely left the CD player since. We play a lot of jazz, blues and hip-hop in our home, and "In the World.." immediately fit into our oral landscape, as much because of its ecclecticism as its originality. Each song is deeply rooted in the blues and never loses its blues foundation, whether combined with funk style voices as on "Rain Shower" or rap (the rapper is Olu's son Nas) on "Jungle Jay". The latter features a wonderful live cornett over a grooving non-sampled, i.e. live, hip hop backdrop and, thus, satisfies the jazz, blues and hip hop afficionado in us at the same time. Another standout in a great set is "Your Lips", with its slight touch of Reggae and its ironic text.

Olu Dara has made a name for himself in the jazz underground and with his first CD. I was a little disappointed that he didn't play more trumpet, because he is such a great trumpet player. He did mostly singing. He is a good singer, but his trumpet playing is really excellent. But, there are some great tracks like "Harlem Country Girl", "Jungle Jay"(featuring Olu's son, rapper Nas), "Natchez Shopping Blues", and "Rain Shower", although the small amount of trumpet playing lowers that rating to four stars. Very good Olu Dara debut. If he makes another one, you'll have to get it.

The firt time I heard Olu Dara was at a concert at Yoshi's in Oakland, Ca, from that day on, I felt in love with his music and his style. This cd is just a classic, I have listen to it, at least once a day.

My favorite song is Harlem Country Girl...

I first heard of Olu Dara in the Oxford American. His story is captivating, and this album is a wonderful musical introduction of his work. I'm no music critic, but like the old cliche, I know what I like. Dara's music is eclectic, sometimes obviously rooted in the blues, other times kind of Caribbean, but all of it good. This is the sort of music that I give to other people, like a book I'd want to share.
