leo recommends: "a master of soulful afrobeat & highlife guitar, this year’s return blew me away, his fusion of jazz & african styles sounding as fresh, vibrant & irresistibly hip-shakingly good today as 30 years ago".

a strident return from the ghanaian highlife guitar legend features 6 new compositions of deadly rhythms & elating afrobeat melodies. taylor fuses his irresistible, unique afrobeat strut with a return to highlife influenced guitar work on this album inspired by his childhood, traditional fante songs & war chants. recorded with the rock solid berlin based unit afrobeat academy, ‘appia kwa bridge’ is energetic & downright funky from the off, from the firing, rousing ‘ayesama’ to the syncopated groove of the title track, letting up only for a touching acoustic tribute to taylor’s late wife. features special guests tony allen, original africa 70 guitarist oghene kologbo & congo maestro addo nettey.
