    LOVE this song--New Wave Afro-Beat! Can't wait for the rest of the album to drop.

    Yet another Bandcamp treasure, glorious music I'd find nowhere else. A voice as clear as a mountain spring, while the shadows of a tenor sax and double bass flicker over its ripples and swirls.

    Woozy funky strange, smooth and weird and jazzy--when it comes to this smart and soulful music, "Oh baby there is nothing wrong" is absolutely right.

    Perfect music for when you don't want your toes to touch the ground.

    African Songbird African Songbird
    OK, Sathima Bea Benjamin's song"Africa," on the Matsuli Music anthology, is so damn good I need the entire album. The other two tracks are just as remarkable. I chose the a cappella "African Songbird" here because her expressive voice and phrasing utterly shines. Singer and songwriter Benjamin, btw, was the wife of and musical collaborator with Dollar Brand (Abdullah Ibrahim), friends with Duke Ellington, and mother of hip-hop genius Jean Grae.
  11. Mzanzi Afro Jazz Sounds - Matsuli Label Sampler

    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Africa Africa
    Whew, what riches here in this sampler of South African jazz! Every track stands out, and Sathima Bea Benjamin's 21 minute "Africa" is a true spiritual jazz masterpiece, unfolding with one satisfying variation after another, held together by her soulful, keening voice (play this track LOUD).
