5.0 out of 5 stars
Ali's son shines, 2 Feb 2007
I was lucky enough to receive an early release copy of this album, what a corker it is. If your a fan of Ali Farka Toure this is a must have album.
Vieux has his own distinctive style and yet you can hear how his fathers influence and style has rubbed off on him, having his father on the album on two tracks is just gobsmaking too.
Having some other great musicians with him including Toumani Diabaté & the new rising vocal star of Malian music Issa Bamba obviously helps but its still a fabulous first album.
Well done Vieux.
