Album Notes
The melodies of the up-tempo blues "Now What?!" and the Bossa-inflected "Stay A While (mon Ameu)" are immediately memorable, coaxing you to sing along, while the sleek swing of "Satisfy Your Soul" is likely to start your foot tapping and your body swaying. These songs are original compositions from guitarist Keith Jordan.

Throughout the recording, Marco Chelo's tenor saxophone lines pose questions and then answer them with authority. John Austria's piano sound is stunning: listen to his fluency on "Satisfy Your Soul" and dig his rhythmic interaction with guitarist Jordan on the lovely, lilting "I Do," another memorable Jordan composition. Drummer Vince Warren and Double bassist Fred Pratt supply a buoyant propulsion throughout, as well the occasional display of near-telepathic interaction with the other band members. Mali native Makane Kouyate's vocals and djembe take the fore and sound a clarion call on the band original "Nonosi." A highlight of Il Collettivo's live set, "Nonosi" has been known to turn previously indifferent diners into shouting, dancing, napkin-swinging enthusiasts.
