EDITORS’ NOTES

The idea of a collaboration between traditionalist Senegalese musicians Baaba Maal and Mansour Seck—with added electric embellishments by Aziz Dieng—sets hopes pretty high. With these players’ reputations preceding them, we expect layer upon layer of intricate guitar interplay. Luckily, this album does not disappoint: These expert musicians pick their way to ecstasy on tunes like the entrancing "Lam Tooro," the emotive "Maacina Tooro," and the awesomely complex "Muudo Hormo"—songs that explore the origins of blues and jazz sounds with rapturous splendor.
