2003 release. "Delicious melodies, inspired and original arrangements, faultless playing, scalp-tingling voices." (John Armstrong, BBC Radio 1). "The sound is stunning and the orchestration perfect, including beautifully layered acoustic guitars, some tasty accordion, and on some tunes an all-clarinet horn section, harking back to the early days of Congolese rumba." (Banning Eyre, Afropop Worldwide). "A thread of nostalgia runs through Congo Life, yet the novel arrangements and loose-limbed swing speak of invention and ready wit." (Richard Henderson, The Wire).
