Represses up! Afrofunk fusion from the awesome Nigerian Jazz collective Ayetoro - a gorgeous collection of tracks spanning many styles and moods.

Opener Asoju Oba flirts with blues, more complex jazz styles and a countenance of brightness with subtle hints of melancholy or longing.

The melancholic accents are brought to the fore in Ife Is Sublime featuring vocals from Nneka and Kyla Rose, the lyrics dealing with longing and separation, with a sombre and soothing instrumental in support.

419Afrobeat.com is an exercise in irregular time signatures, polyrhythms and instrumental prowess featuring the deft handiwork of Tony Allen. A captivating blend of Afrobeat and upbeat jazz, with a lick of sax and rhodes keys for good measure.

Great stuff.
