The Need of Love opens with pounding underarm drums, an imprint of Africa cleverly placed here as if to remind us that so many genres of music (soul, jazz, rock and everything in between) owe their success to the ancestral rhythms of this continent. Across this global heritage, Lisa Simone also evokes her own past as well as that of her mother’s, the legendary Nina Simone. During her tumultuous life, her mother fought not only to be recognised for her own talent, but also led considerable fights during the civil rights movement, as well as battling some inner demons. An interesting but difficult legacy which Lisa Simone firsty avoided. 

She joined the US Air Force in the 90s, but was eventually drawn back to music, so much of which runs through her veins. She has now faced her past and touches on her renowned mother on LibationsGhostTonight and Legacy (on this one, she expresses her honour and joy of having such a unique heritage). Composed with the Senegalese guitarist Hervé Samb, and produced by the drummer Régis Ceccarelli (Chats Sauvages, Dee Dee Bridgewater), these songs are all of a great variety: Motown-style pop on The Reckoning or Touchy Subjects, funky jazz for Wonderful and Secret & Lies, a suave ballad on The Need of Love and gospel soul for the single Right NowThe Need of Love is a hand-crafted piece of art made for a voice in direct contact with the heart and soul, a platform for a voice which exudes pure, elegant talent. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

The Great History of Malian Music

Mandingo traditions or urban intersections, ancestral chants from the griots or dance bands on the day following the Independence, the family tree of Malian music possesses deep roots, leafy branches and a strong sap. Let’s take a look back at the fascinating history.

David Rodigan, the voice of reggae

For forty years, David Rodigan has been the voice of reggae on British radio. Since his early beginnings on BBC Radio London in 1978, this enthusiast has gone well beyond his function of radio presenter, as he went mixing in the clubs and festivals and became a world champion of soundclash, a Jamaican tradition that confronts DJs (the “selectors”) in a disc against disc duel, with the help of a special version of reggae classics called “dubplates”—the artist changing the lyrics to sing the praises of the selector. As he released, in early 2018 his book My Life in Reggae, David Rodigan talks with Qobuz about those secret songs, his trips to Jamaica, his frantic scene play or even his “mystical” meeting with Bob Marley.
