For his second solo album in 20 years Roger Raspail, a master of percussion, creates a heady intersection of jazz and Guadeloupean folk music, Gwo Ka. With only two albums in a career lasting over forty years, the least one can say is that Roger Raspail takes his time and great care before he puts his vision of the world to music. Wonderful release!
