Ebo Taylor has released records since 1977, and his latest EP on the Superfly imprint, Twer Nyame, maintains his reputation for quality West African music. The title track gently nudges you with soft organ keys sitting perfectly amongst a gentle vocal spattering. Short guitar licks and horn stabs demand attention as they make you sway back and forth to this delightful piece of African funk. "Peace On Earth" lounges at an easy pace, the gliding guitar work and soft piano line make the track both mournful and optimistic, perfectly suited to a dark basement club dense with smoke. Finally "Atwer Abroba" picks up the pace with fearsome horn stabs and an organ solo completely drenched in funk.
