Новинка 35:11. Film of Life was recorded in France with the Jazzbastards playing and producing, and a slew of guests contributing to its musical mix. It can be heard both as a portrait of Allen's career as Afrobeat's bannerman rhythmnatist or - perhaps more accurately - the soundtrack to his own musical innovation and evolution through it. Either way it's a stone killer. Album 2014 10 Songs. Film of Life Tony Allen. Of Life. Tony Allen. 2016 The Tony Allen Experiments. Black Voices. 2018 Remixes. OTO Live Party.

Release date: 20 October 2014. This is a somewhat unfair state of affairs, considering Allen's accomplishments. As Fela Kuti's drummer and bandleader of the legendary Africa 70 orchestra, Allen was essential to the creation of Afrobeat. Following the huge success of Fela the musical, this superhumanly funky stew of polyrhythmic hypnosis that infused the hypnotic repetition of prime James Brown with limber High Life grooves, traditional Nigerian rhythms and the improvisation-friendly looseness of Jazz is nearer to the mainstream than ever before. Tony Allens Film of Life showcases the influential 70-year old Afrobeat drummer still in prime form. This album, composed and performed by Allen and a rotating roster of crack musicians and produced by the French trio The Jazzbastards, has any number of fresh sounds for listeners as the band explores a variety of musical styles, from funky Afrobeat to Philly soul. Film of Life contains some of the same conceptual and politically conscious material that defines much of Allens prior work however, he delivers these conceptual threads through the means of dance-friendly party grooves

Inspirational album! This guy has so much energy. Opening track has an amazing groove, locked down. Go Back with Damon Albarn is stunning too, his voice is a perfect addition to Allen's sound. Highly recommend this one.
