Osee Yee brings these elements together at a higher level than we've heard in years. This is partly due to the musician's abilities, but perhaps the music on this album is more inspired because this is Osibisa's 40th anniversary; some of the songs even quote musical lines from songs on the first few Osibisa albums. Osee Yee opens with a short rock-oriented instrumental, Osuno, then launches into another charging upbeat number, Watusi, that starts to bring in more of the African elements. The back cover calls this an Osibisa Generation Four album. Players have come and gone over the years, with leader Teddy Osei and his brother Mac Tontoh still in the group. The Osibisa webpage mentions plans for a reunion tour and album by the original band members. Overall, the playing is excellent, as is the production and sound.
Osee Yee is a music studio album recording by OSIBISA (Jazz ive Rock) released in 2009 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette.

Osibisa's second album 'Wowoya' would see the Afro-prog pioneers expand their sound to include more overtly jazzy overtones whilst also turning down the party atmosphere in favour of a more sedate and psychedelic feel. Again, guitarist Wendell Richardson and group leader, founder and saxophonist Teddy Osei are the dominant forces, but this time around the group's uplifting pallette of sounds features a more complex lilt that places 'Wowoya' much closer to the sounds of progressive rock. More thoughtful than their self-titled debut, 'Wowoya' is a complex.
Osee Yee is a studio album by Ghanaian Afro-pop band Osibisa released in 2009 by Golden Stool Records – GSTOCD 002. It includes a rendition of George Harrison's song "My Sweet Lord" that's given an Osibisa funk spin. The back cover calls this an Osibisa Fourth Generation album.
