"... in its first two weeks as a "new release" at WEFT, your CD has ranked #1 and #5 on our world music top ten chart. You can't do much better than that! :-)..."
"Yes!! What a delightful album! I’m adding it to Heavy rotation this week; I’ll chart it for CMJ next week Tuesday. What a groovy disc!! ..."
"I have indeed received the CD at the station and REALLY love it (I'm looking at it right now)! I'm going to give it some more attention today. Check out my playlists-and the Programmer ahead of me, Genevieve-Wed.,"Route 66" at www.wruw.org, and you'll see. Thanks,and,keep 'em coming............. "
"I love this CD whose multi-cultural reference points converge to form
a World Jazz that is perfect for my radio show "Jazz Without Borders."I was particularly delighted by the funkiness and sensuality of 'Caravane'
whose electricity surprised me. My program's time slot is midnight Saturday
night to 3 am Sunday morning and that track's groove is perfect for that
shifting time of day/night/morning."
What an interesting album!
Thanks for sending "Tonight's African Jazz Band." Very cool CD.
Most of the music on tonight's show comes from ... I am playing a number of tracks from a group of musicians out of New York calling themselves Source who have a release entitled Tonight's African Jazz Band. (thanks Sylvain for sending this disc).
"I really like this CD! ... I will definitely be featuring it this week and future weeks. Very joyous and creative mix of soukous and West African styles. It has a great improvisational jazz flair but never sacrifices the dance groove. And the vocals are fantastic ... "
"Hello Sylvain, I was really impressed by the Source cd, my main initial concern was the quality of the production and to my delight I was not disappointed, I found most of the songs to have a positive upbeat and danceable vibe and I will be playing it along the Mory Kante, the new Toumani Diabate etc. It's hard to pick a favorite song but I guess I can tell you that my very favorites, considering several factors, would be # 5, #1, #2 and #7, thank you."
"The Fulani flute is one of those instruments that has both power and a soft beauty. It's not often heard in the US, but nobody is working harder to change that than Quebecois musical ambassador Sylvain Leroux. Also the driving force behind the wonderful Fula Flute project, Leroux teams up with Malian singer Abdoulaye "Djoss" Diabate on this album, also bringing in flutist Bailo Bah, guitarist Mory Kante, and others. Think Heavy Flute meets Super Rail Band. Or don't think, and just enjoy the fresh tunes, from the sparse "Caravane" to the highly danceable "Bara." Definitely recommended for any Afropop / Afrojazz fan."
