I have a new favorite CD

I have a new favorite CD: “Specialist in all styles” by Orchestra Baobab. It just arrived from Amazon today & I’ve been listening to it continuously. They’re a classic Senegalese group from 1970-1987 known for smooth laid-back Latin-tinged dance music. They just reunited with almost all of their original members, with the notable exception of Laye Mboup who died in a car accident, and Thione Seck, who now has a successful solo career. The new CD is produced by Youssou N’dour and features updates of several classic tracks. It also features N’dour & Cuban singer Ibrahim Ferrer on one track.
