Dexter Story Vinyl, CD & tapes by Dexter Story at Norman Records
Dexter Story has been a busy music business man for some time now. Now he takes a personal turn with Bahir, an album that draws on experiences in Africa by bringing together LA and African musicians. There are so many different kinds of grooves here, gorgeously mixed-up with jazz aspects and psychedelia. A great step forward for Dexter Story.
Dexter Story deploys influences from all across a range of East African nations, to enormously good-time effect. Wondem features guests like Nia Andrews, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Yared Tashele, but it is Dexter’s broad vision and detailed arrangements that bring this record home. On Soundway.
