"Blissfully obsessed" !! That`s a great expression ! I`m glad you are enjoying it so much - for me too it is something truely exceptional.
Anyway, it looks set to win the current poll, so lets hope that it generates at least some debate or comment.

Either this album or a later collaboration with Jerry Douglas. This one seems easier to find.

I guess the difference between these two albums is that on A Meeting by the River Ry Cooder more or less simply accompanies Vishwa Mohan Bhatt but on Bourbon & Rosewater they kind of meet in the middle for a more interesting (at least to me) fusion of styles.

I'll nominate "Neshamah" by Tim Sparks. It's a nice solo acoustic guitar album that explores several different types of traditional Jewish music with some jazzy themes.

Thanks, Frownland : we haven`t had a solo piano album before, so this makes for a very interesting nomination. I think Janszoon is going to change the poll for us, so that Tim Sparks features in the latest poll.
I`m going to post your album in the poll thread now.

EDIT : Thanks for fixing the poll, Janszoon !

Yeah, I just noticed that too. I saw the album cover and I read what I expected to read !

Toumani Diabaté - The Mandé Variations (2008)



Featuring Toumani Diabaté playing solo kora. This video has some background on the musician and on the kora.

Another Toumani Diabaté but this time in a nice bit of Brazilian fusion.

Arnaldo Antunes, Edgard Scandurra & Toumani Diabaté - A Curva Da Cintura (2012)




If you can only use one of my nominations this round I'll leave it to you to pick your favourite. I like the solo Toumani Diabaté but this one is maybe a little more varied.

Thanks, stp ! They both look like interesting albums, so I`m not sure which one to pick. If no-one else chips in with an opinion, maybe we should go with the one that`s easiest to get hold of. What do you think ?

Maybe just stick with my first nomination of The Mande Variations. It's probably the stronger of the two.
