Vieux Farka Toure: Live
Buy! - (Six Degrees)
The son of the legendary late Malian guitarist Ali Farka Toure comes fully into his own with this scintillating live album, combining bluesy West African styles with a high-energy rock attack centered around Toure’s jaw-dropping electric guitar work. Toure lights up one song after another with dizzying complex, rapid-fire guitar lines executed with uncommon fluidity and grace, and this live album is the finest showcase to date for his fiery guitar shredding. 6/22/2010 - Don Yates
