商品詳細情報

リチャード・ボナ、ロクア・カンザとのトリオ作でもこの世のものとは思えない至上の音楽を披露していたマルチニーク出身のジェラルド・トトが NO FORMAT から新譜をリリース。アコースティック・ギターとシンプルなパーカッション、そして清らかかつしなやかな生命力に溢れた歌声を軸にした極上のアンサンブル。自身のルーツであるカリブのリズムだけでなく、アフリカやブラジル音楽などを独自に消化して、その上澄みだけを丁寧に汲み取ったかのような贅沢な洗練とでも言うべきか...つまり極上! 後半のエレクトロニックな展開も自然で素晴らしいですね。



We last heard Gérald Toto on trio album Bondeko, recorded with fellow global travellers Lokua Kanza and Richard Bona, the "dreamy backdrop" and "immaculate sweet harmonies" of which earned a run of four and five star reviews, leading one reviewer to liken the trio to "an African Crosby, Stills and Nash." Entirely written, performed and produced single-handedly by Gérald, Sway's collection of 11 new songs takes it's listener on an imaginary journey to a world that has time to stop and stare, where the frenetic din of modernity is hushed to a murmur, Toto's songs seemingly plucked from a place of timeless reverie. The songs on Sway refuse categorization, a cultural melting pot of acoustic folk, jazz, soul, pop and blues with cosmopolitan borders that embrace exotic Creole and Caribbean favours. Highlights include the sweet, sambatinged romance of "My Girlfriend" and the futuristic doopwop that underpins "Umbaka", alongside the diaphanous, sun-dappled lilt of Sway's title track. Elsewhere, the gravitydefying 'Away Alive' and 'Let It Blow' are leavened by the skittering electronic beats that drive 'It's A Love Pain' and eerie, atmospheric album closer 'The Night Is Coming'. For if quiet is the new loud, Gérald Toto's voice is blessed with an eloquence that demands to be heard, as his gently insistent songs whisper in an emotional language as universal as it is engaging. Sway to the rhythms of life.
