Ebo Taylor - Love and Death

Taylor became a major figure in Ghanaian highlife during the 1950s and '60s. Through the mid-'70s and into the '80s, Taylor recorded a number of solo projects, exploring unique fusions and borrowing elements from traditional Ghanaian sounds, Fela's Afrobeat, jazz, soul and funk. Now 74 years-old, Ebo Taylor's music has become increasingly in-demand with a series of Ghanaian compilations on Soundway Records and Analog Africa. Love and Death is one favourite from this album. I especially love the hints of jazz elements in the song.
