Tony Allen

Jealousy/Progress

With Foals and Yeasayer both championing afro-beat it seems apt that the genre’s don should issue his latest collection. Currently warming the drumstool for Albarn’s TGTB&TQ, Allen’s widely seen as afro-beat’s godfather. And rightly so. ‘Jealousy…’ serves as a worthy introduction to anyone just opening their ears to a continent’s influence.
