Orchestra Baobab lit up Senegal's nightclubs for years with their Afro-Cuban jazz and pop, and their infectious grooves easily carry to the studio. Singing in French and Spanish, the band swings across genres, from sax-driven reggae on "Ngalam" to a touch of King Sunny Ade-styled juju on "Coumba. The extended Latin-jazz workout "Ray M'bele" features a fluid solo from lead guitarist Barthelemy Attisso and the rocking, exuberant wail of Issa Cissoko, whose sax showcases liven up the entire album.

And yet the story of Pirate's Choice bears re-telling, and what I've taken from it over the years is bound up in its multiple histories.

It's a strong album but positively sedate compared to the wild and woolly Bamba -guess it's a question of whether you prefer your African pop looking back to faithfully reflect its early roots or charging forward in new directions.
