Naptown (4:52)



One that combines the lament of the blues with the expressive rhythmic riches of Afro- centricity and the reinvention of music on brass and strings. -- Raul D'Gama Rose, All About Jazz


Ghanaian drummer, percussionist Kwaku Kwaakye Obeng imparts a world-groove quotient into the progressive-jazz and jazz-improvisation realm, here on this cunning and largely, excitable set. -- Glenn Astarita, Jazzreview.com


And you could say it's a free bop album in the best of traditions: rhythmic, open, mostly without apparent themes, but yet with very close and coherent interaction between the musicians, who weave their solos over and around each other, constructing a great flowing and dancing sonic play. -- FreeJazzStef
