The album is subtitled as `A tribute to Langton Hughes', the prolific African American poet, playwright and novelist. The material includes music written to Hughes' poetry, Haitian folk songs as well as Leyla's original songs. The performances are all acoustic, featuring a small group of players (including Rhiannnon Giddens and Hubby Jenkins of the Chocolate Drops) but often simply duos or solo. Chocolate Drops fans will appreciate the Jazz, Blues and Old-time country influences here, but by drawing heavily on her Caribbean and Creole heritage Leyla is also bringing something fresh to the party. This is a stunning, contemporary and yet timeless recording (the first of many I hope).
I should also mention that the CD is beautifully presented with photos, lyrics and notes. I purchased an advance copy during Leyla's recent UK tour with Rhiannon Giddens.
With its driving rhythms, slick Caribbean Sounding vocals, Rose Marie is absolutely Great. Appears on the album - Vari-Colored Songs
Must get the Album

I couldn't wait for this recording to come out - and I'm so pleased with it. A fabulous musician with an amazing voice. Quite sparse and empty but full of emotion and musicality. Read morePublished 7 months ago by FozzyBear
