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

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Jazz album after Kind Of Blue. June 19, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great cd!! December 7, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars like father like son September 19, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent February 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic February 9, 2004
By Yen
Format:Audio CD
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...

5.0 out of 5 stars What music should be... October 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
From "Okra" to "Zora" and my all-time favorite, "Harlem Country Girl" Olu Dara takes his listener on a ride from Harlem, to Natchez, to West Africa by way of the of the Caribbean. Grab your passport and some good dancing shoes for this gem. Olu Dara is a best kept secret. I saw him at the Hot House in Chicago and immediately wanted to run out and get evertything he's recorded. His voice, masterful delivery and phrasing, his virtuostic cornet playing and his guitar work will enchant.
