it was a tough day at the office, one of those new york mondays that gives you one-two punches all day long. i was at the end of my rope when i walked i and my guy had new music (to me) by Ali Farka Toure, i guess THE African blues legend playing with Ry Cooder of The Buena Vista Social club…it’s blissful and universal and i don’t understand a word of it. but it’s making me happy and i was not at all amused just an hour ago. you can hear it on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Talking-Timbuktu-Ali-Farka-Tour%C3%A9/dp/B00000062H

    Did you ever see the movie Unfaithful with Richard Gere? This music is from that movie and it plays a pivotal role in the actual script. I was obsessed with this music for a while after bein obsessed with the movie! Great choice for a post.

    Vieux Farka Toure is Ali’s son, not Ali… so I’m not quite sure why you have it posted when you didn’t mention Vieux……………………
