Sometimes you can take the party home with you, and by the sound of it, Baaba Maal's gig at London's Royal Festival Hall wasn't just a helluva party, it was also a great musical event. With a band as tight as any James Brown led, Maal and his ensemble strike irresistible grooves where the percussion percolates hotter than anything Starbucks could brew. On "Koni" master guitarist Ernest Ranglin joins the fray--he made his last album with Maal's band--and takes it all in a slightly different, but no less wonderful, direction, before Maal himself sweeps back for the epic, explosive finale of "Douwayra." If you thought soul music was dead, listen to this; it's the African soul. Once you've joined this party, you won't want it to end. --Chris Nickson

Format: Audio CD
This album offers nothing new or particularly interesting for fans of Baaba's music or African music in general. However, it serves as a nice (and cheap) slice of his recent shows, a 40-minute distillation of his modern sounds: the incorporation of a soul-funk sensibility as heard on the opening track, and the "return to the roots" with Ernest Ranglin. All the musicians play with discipline and spirit, and "African Woman" stands out with its Latin American flavor.

Baaba Maal and band are simply terrific on this live recording. Funky, tight, soulful and still melodic, they engage in extended work-outs of some of Baaba's more recent songs. The results are satisying in every respect. The highlight is unquestionably the tender rendition of "Koni", with the great Earnest Ranglin accompanying. The next step for me is to see the real deal,in person and in concert. I can't wait.

I love this album. I had owned it once and lost it so was glad to get the replacement.
