African Science -- CD Review

A delightful, well thought out CD! African Science takes the listener on a journey, from the insight of The Lesson, and the joyous syncopation of the title tune, on through a rainbow of moods: backbeat modernity, inspired poetry, African ebullience, a salute to First People, the time machine of a soulful Ragtime, a funky Mambo, and an achingly accurate chanted portrayal of the hold of a ship in the Diaspora. Carlos Joe Costa and the other gifted talents gathered around him create a series of audio vignettes, pleasing and thought-provoking. Get it online at CD Baby, iTunes and more. I play tenor sax on Colours and Deep Fried Mambo...
