    It really is that good. He truly has inherited his father's gift of layering fine melodies which could fill any room.

  1. He's already a masterful player in his own right and he has his ear cocked toward the future, not only the past.
  2. He enjoys modern arrangements and judicious cross-genre excursions that edge up on reggae and rock, and when he lets go, his guitar lines possess the playful muscularity of a tussle among rambunctious friends.
  3. Inevitably, Vieux Farka Toure is not in the same league as his father. But he has still managed to make a very impressive and enjoyable debut album.
