Laba Sosseh

Laba Sosseh
CD (SAR/Guajiro 1029),
Editor's Pick:
**Classics Revisited**
Along with Mali's Boncana Maďga and Amadou Balaké, Senegalese singer and composer Laba Sosseh was an early pioneer of the tradition of Africans journeying to New York to record with Latin musicians. In 1980 he worked on Salsa Africana Vols.1, 2 and 4 with Monguito El Unico for Aboudou Lassissi's legendary Sacodis label. During the next two years the SAR label put out Roberto Torres Presenta A Laba Sosseh (SAR 1020; 1981) and Laba Sosseh (SAR 1029; 1982). Were they recorded concurrently or during different trips Sosseh made to the Big Apple? I don't know. All five albums are worthy additions to your collection, but I have singled out the 1982 release Laba Sosseh because of the inclusion of two of his trademark numbers: "Aminata", which he remade with Africando for 1998's Baloba! on Stern's, and "Diamoule Mawo", which Joe Arroyo reinvented as "Yamulemao" for his 1987 album Echao Pa'lante on Fuentes. There are no musician credits on the CD reissue, but several of the usual SAR All Star suspects are there taking solos, such as pianist Alfredo Valdés Jr., trumpeter Alfredo "Chocolate" Armenteros and tres player Charlie Rodríguez. Definitely highly recommended. (John Child, 2005-05-31)
