A lovely pair


CALL My Name is the tasty fruit of the cosmopolitan collaboration of Paris-based West African Daby Toure and London-based American Skip "Little Axe" McDonald.
Bearing the hallmarks of their shared African heritage most strongly, this free and easy collection takes influences ranging from rock, funk, blues, afro-pop and reggae at points throughout the track-listing.
Sounding every bit the enjoyable, pressure-free jamming that it is, tracks like the brooding Past Time and the atmospheric, rocky Time Has Come show that together this pair could easily match the recent successes of Afrocentric artists like Amadou Et Mariam.
Call My Name left me calling for a full-length outing.
