after listening to this show, reading that tony allen is an “afrobeat” pioneer wasn’t that surprising (though i’d definitely call this jazz, not afrobeat).  i enjoyed this so much that i then listened to another 2 or 3 tony allen shows, but ended up back giving this show another listen, and sharing it up here. not the first time this sort of thing has happened.
