All About Jazz Review of Gigi's "Gold and Wax"

All About Jazz has written an article on the growing popularity of African-inspired pop music in the northern hemisphere. Of specific interest is Gigi’s recent record Gold & Wax, produced by her husband Bill Laswell. They cite Laswell as an influence on the whole scene, and give the record an overall positive review:

There’s no way to know where each of Gigi’s eighteen named collaborators actually perform. But in some sense that’s a totally irrelevant question, since the overall sound is quite consistent and the individual voices comprise a nearly orchestral whole.

They do question whether Gigi is starting to pigeon-hole herself with a somewhat similar discography (they actually use the term “Laswellized”), but I feel the question pales in comparison to the sheer quality of music the couple releases.
