Recommended Listening With Damian Erskine : Cheikh Ndoye | “A Child’s Tale”

Meet Reviewer Damian Erskine –

Cheikh Ndoye
“A Child’s Tale”
www.myspace.com/cheikhndoye

Originally from West Africa and now residing in Maryland, I first met Cheikh online via Myspace.  I was instantly struck not only by his abilities on the instrument, but by his overall musicality (in addition to being one of the kindest cats I’ve had the pleasure of meeting).  When made aware of his upcoming debut release, I couldn’t wait to get my ears in it!  Featuring such luminaries as Dave Weckl, Russell Ferrante, Dean Brown, Eric Marienthal & Randy Brecker you may have an idea of what to expect.  In addition is a cast of musicians, all of whom bring depth and an ebullient energy to Cheikh’s music.

Cheikh’s writing is very musical and engaging and, I must say, quite mature for a debut album!  He is endlessly melodic in approach and serves the music well.  Both a wonderful bass player and melodic soloist I know that we’ll be hearing a lot from this phenomenal talent for years to come…
