Product Description

[Note: This product is an authorized CD-R and is manufactured on demand]

Amazon.com

The Mississippi-born, New York-based Olu Dara is the real deal: a modern day, 21st-century musical troubadour at home with jazz, blues, R&B, Latin, and African sounds. Although he's recorded numerous times with tenor sax titan David Murray and has played with Art Blakey and Taj Mahal since the 1970s, his debut recording In the World wasn't released until 1998. On the much-anticipated follow-up, Neighborhoods, Dara delivers more of his cross-genre African American autobiographical soundscapes. Backed by the diasporic grooves provided by his Natchesippi Dance Band, Dara's down-home elliptical vocals and blues-twanged guitar licks color this entire session. On the title track, with its urbane rimshots and catchy guitar hooks, Dara pays tribute to Brooklyn, Harlem, and the Queensbridge projects, where his son, Nas, initiated the next phase of hip-hop. The talking drum grooves "Massamba" along spiritedly. Dr. John lends his bayou-drenched Hammond B-3 organ to the Afro-Latin "I See the Light," the comical "Red Ant(Nature)," and the midtempo mojo-mooded "Herbman." Jazz chanteuse Cassandra Wilson adds her deep-Delta contralto to "Used to Be," and on "Tree Blues" and "Strange Things" Dara turns it out with just his voice, his guitar, and some percussion, just enough for the blues. --Eugene Holley Jr.
