British producer and singer Jamie Lidell is one of electronic music's funkiest solo practitioners. When Lidell visitedWorld Cafe in 2006 to support his successful albumMultiply, he told host David Dye that he had been called the "one-man human funk tornado" — a moniker he earns yet again in this session.

In this installment of World Cafe, Lidell plays songs from his latest self-titled album and discusses the process of making the record at his new home studio in Nashville. (Link)
