Format: Audio CD
Went to Leyla McCalla concert in Durham, NC the other night and was impressed by the quiet power of the music she makes. Reminded me a bit of Terry Callier, though, alas, I've never experienced his music live. There are songs based on Langston Hughes poetry, a few originals and Haitian traditional songs, which, in my opinion, are the highlight of the album. She was accompanied by violin & bass in the concert and the music felt more within the lines of Cajun/Creole tradition (Leyla is currently based in New Orleans, btw), but on the album it sounds a bit more laid back, like it was played on the porch- though it was professionally recorded in studio in Floyd, VA in very good sound. Beside of Haitian music, the songs have traces of Blues, Appalachian Folk, Cajun, Zydeco and other American roots music forms.
The CD is very well presented, with a book that contains all the texts/translations and many photos.
I'm looking forward to hear more music coming from Leyla over the years.

The first song of Layla McCalla I heard was "Heart of Gold". This is a L. Hughes poem set to music and was featured on NPR. I am not familiar with this style of music. I must say I love this collection of songs. There is something soft and gentle about the rhythms as well as McCalla's voice. The lyrics tell a kind of story. If like me you are unfamiliar with the work or music style take the time to listen to "Heart of Gold". It may convince you to enjoy and purchase the entire album.

Sweets sounds from a talented lady. This well crafted cd has a jazzy smoothness. I keep putting it back on to listen more closely. You can hear this at different levels. Nice job.

What a unique, fascinating and soulful presentation! Excellent, evocative, expressive - not to be missed. Langston Hughes poetry is timeless.

Recommended for fans of Caroline Chocolate Drops and other artists that tread the fine line of making unvarnished traditional music with a modern attitude.
