Jacob Asiyo Nairobi, Kenya
Jacob Asiyo's first purely commercial effort as a leader, plays it straight to those who have avidly followed his career. Unsurprisingly, this is a tight, superbly played set with the feel of a celebration. The album sounds like it was easy and fun to make, one can sense joy and deep focus in the interplay, as the material is predominantly amiable and laid-back. It's almost entirely instrumental.
