Proof that Afro Funk never dies – as long as you know where to look! This set by Ebo Taylor is a contemporary recording, but it's got a damn sharp groove – and hits as hard as any dusty old gem you might find from the 70s – with just the right production to make all the core elements come out right! Comet Records had a hand in the production, and they work the same kind of magic with Taylor that they've used on Tony Allen – really helping an Afro Funk legend come back out on top, and avoid any of the watered-down world music cliches that might otherwise hurt a record like this. Rhythms are super-funky, and produced with some great grit in the grooves – and Taylor's vocals and guitar sound wonderful – if anything, only deepened with the passage of time. Titles include "Ayesama", "Abonsam", "Barrima", "Appia Kwa Bridge", "Assomdwee", and "Yaa Amponsah".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
