Smoke Notes

Fela Anikulapo Kuti was without a doubt one of the most revered and influential African musicians of the 20th century, releasing scores of politically charged and funk-fuelled afrobeat albums from the 1960s right up until succumbing to the AIDS virus in 1997. Given Kuti's legendary status it's no surprise that when AIDS awareness organisation Red Hot revealed plans for a Fela Kuti tribute album to raise awareness about the African AIDS epidemic, and Fela fans emerged from all areas of modern music to take part. Over the course of 20 songs the extensive Kuti songbook is well and truly worked over by Fela's family, former band members and numerous fans, with all star collaborations between the likes of world musicians Jorge Ben Jor and Manu Dibango, hip-hoppers Common and Talib Kweli, r&b singers D'Angelo and Kelis, old school jazz legends Roy Hargrove and Archie Shepp, '80s stars Sade and Nile Rodgers and cutting edge nu jazz producers Bugz In The Attic and Chateau Flight. There's some stunning reworkings of Fela's always funky songs, ranging from fairly faithful covers to completely new tracks based around fat samples from Kuti's numerous hits. As with all Red Hot releases this is an impressive project and makes for essential listening. Recommended.
