"…Sad songs like “Am I Blue” or “St. Louis Blues” merely punctuated the spunky cavalcade of innuendo and double entendre that included covers of Cox’s “One Hour Mama,” Liston’s “You’ve Got the Right Key, But the Wrong Keyhole,” Johnson’s “Who’ll Chop Your Suey” and a double helping of Hunter with “Handy Man” and the dirtiest defense of virginity I’ve ever heard, Wade singing “Take Your Big Hands Off.” Even those numbers that weren’t dishing dirt could be downright ornery and spiteful, as with “After You’ve Gone,” “I Found a New Baby” and Waters’ “You Had It Coming to You.”

While Wade’s “Big Hands” and Russell’s “Handy Man” were certainly highlights on the 16-song playlist, the concert excelled most when the two vocalists collaborated and we found ourselves transported to a freewheeling jam session…”

“Even before the venerable man comes on tonight, it’s plain that this is not a customary Keita gig. Alone on the stage, one Mamadou Diabaté is plucking at a kora, unleashing little waterfalls of bejewelled descending notes. He is the younger brother of the more famous (in the west, at least) Toumani, and no slouch at all in the family kora-playing tradition which dates back 70 generations.” —

Barbican, London: The veteran Malian superstar reins in the fusion with a largely acoustic set that brings his music back home
