Ali Farka Toure is an excellent musician, I have several other CD's featuring him and he really takes the blues to Africa. On this album, he plays with Ry Cooder and special guests on some songs. The music will have you drifting off to exotic places and then wrench you back with an earthy blues riff. Clarence Gatemouth Brown plays Viola(!) on a couple of tracks and John Patitucci backs on bass.
