I've been a fan of Angelique Kidjo for the past 12 years or so. I have just about every one of her albums as well as a few tracks here and there on compilations and soundtracks. I've seen her in concert, including the tour from which his album was recorded. I enjoy every one of her releases; the songs are so vibrant, expressive, and emotional. And, of course, you can dance to them!! Angelique's beautiful voice and the intoxicating rhythms and melodies from the tight, dynamic band combine to make many great albums, which I can honestly say are great from start to finish (with the exception, in my opinion of her last studio album Oyo). The sound quality of her albums is very good for the majority of her catalog. The last couple are a bit compressed and loud, but, unfortunately I have almost come to accept that with recordings made in the last two decades. The music overcomes this shortcoming, anyway. When I saw her in concert the show was so exciting and the performance so exuberant, the joy reverberated for hours after it was over. In the theater you could hear each note of every instrument, you could feel their beats and rhythms syncing perfectly, and you could experience the gentle and the graceful as well as the powerful vocal dexterity of Angelique's. This was an excellent concert and presents a good mixture of her catalog, with a few guest appearances for good measure. Now, I am not expecting this CD to make my stereo sound like Carnagie Hall, but this album sounds like it was recorded by someone in the tenth row with a small reel to reel recorder. As flat as a painting. I am not a proponent of "more bass sounds better", but there is no bass on this recording!! And although Angelique is giving a spirited performance, the lack of dynamics here keep her heavenly voice in a box. This is out on DVD as well, maybe that will have better sound.

Having seen Angelique Kidjo in concert in concert, I was curious to see what her live CD would be like and how that compared.
She does her live CD with a lot of guest stars. Branford Marsalis may be the one that works best here but overall, I'm not sure that the guest artists add to the experience. When I saw her, she was a ball of energy and it was a very uptempo set. Here, it tends to drag when there's a guest but still I like the CD although not as much as the concert I saw.

I saw this concert with other" friends" and great singers/performers on PBS recently and wanted it at home as part of my music collection. It is really powerful and strong and great.

Mrs Kidjo knows how to work her songs and she keeps this live show both exciting and deep as needed. A great experience; I hope to one day see her live.

Angelique Kidjo never disappoints. It is fun to listen to Angelique, but an experience to see her live performance. Everyone needs to see her in person.
