We gave it a B+

Oliver Mtukudzi (”Tuku” in his native Zimbabwe) grew up listening to Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett, and the singer-guitarist’s own R&B- and reggae-flavored music has an irresistible, dance-inflected groove that conjures up an afternoon on the beach. Paivepo, his second U.S. release, has enough soulful spice to satisfy old fans (like Bonnie Raitt) and entice new ones. B+
