Steven Halpern’s forte is music for relaxation, but for Afro-Desia, he draws on his jazz and African studies background to groove with master Nigerian drummer Suru Ekeh (who died unexpectedly during the production of this album). Riding on the smooth fretless basslines ofMarc van Wageningen and the fancy drumwork of Suru, the album has a snappy, yet mellow, tone…. More With the exception of the explosive “Chango” and “Wachamba,” the drums rarely thunder, nor do instruments step up to take a solo. “Suru Smiles” is a joyous showcase of Suru’s drumwork. Halpern — who plays piano, synths, and electric guitar — rarely takes center stage; he graciously comps piano and synth support lines for the fabric of voices, bass, and drums. “Legacy” is typical of the album. Suru lays down a hypnotic drum pattern, while Halpern casts extended synth tones that encase the piece like a rainbow. ~ Carol Wright, All Music Guide.
