Mor Thiam :: Ayo Ayo Nene (Blessing For The New Born Baby)

In 2008, via the first volume of Jazzman Record's Spiriual Jazz series, I stumbled upon Senegalese drummer and bandleader Mor Thiam's "Ayo Ayo Nene." Cut in 1973, the track was originally found on Thiam's Drums of Fire -- a record that was beyond scarce. Until now. Jazzman has just reissued the LP. I cannot possibly spit enough hyperbolic praise here to do the track justice, so . . .
