“CHEIKH NDOYE/Child’s Tale: How in hell do you get the kind of cats to show up on a DIY debut recording that this one has? You really have to have something on the ball. This young bass ace has a lot of moments that feel like throwbacks to civil rights era jazz but on the whole, the moments are pretty much in the moment. Drawing from Melvin Van Peebles as much as Ray Brown, this is almost audio verite jazz having the kind of mixed media presence that shows this cat didn’t grow up in a bubble. Certainly a solid pit stop for left leaning tastes, this set is that kind of different set that really grabs hold. Maybe not for everyone, but those in the know will know. ”
