Talib Kibwe….. I didn’t know his work until this album, and his instrumental voice is so personal, clear, and incisive that I kept playing back his solos for the sheer pleasure of such fresh sounds of surprise. If I were still producing jazz records, I would call Kibwe as soon as I got his number.

A real ceremony in memory mixing the most essential jazz: an inventive rereading of even the most distant heritage using jazz codes (blues, swing, hot-expression) with the colors, the inspirations that Randy Weston magnified in his music, from the American continent but the great African spaces dreamed and interpreted by his imagination and his humanism.

“Kasbah” is my kind of jazz, straight-ahead and unapologetic. It’s the first of nineteen tracks on this CD of abundant and excellent music…T.K.Blue’s melodies are infectious. He’s a dynamic composer.
