11 MP3 Songs
WORLD: African, JAZZ: World Fusion

The Bass King reigns!, December 2, 2001

Reviewer: "john_of_bohemia"

I would have bought this album for the first song, "Bass King", alone. Mr. Kumalo was the bass player on Paul Simon''s Graceland and you''ll recognize the quality of playing. What keeps this CD in my player is the artful blend of african and jazz. I like African music from S.E. Rogie to Ali Farke but what I like about this album is that a joyful sound is being laid out with timeless musical, not African, appeal. I don''t always enjoy being given "a lesson" in some sub-catagory of African music at the expense of an artist streching out. There is an complex effortlessness to these soothing tunes, but put your headphones on and the subtle buildings of rythms and harmonies... wow. This is one of those albums that sounds fresh even after a number of listenings, that''s why I gave it a five.

Bakithi swings on this CD. He delivers a hot and spicy brew of muscial genres that works a wicked groove ... from your head to your feet!
A must have for the "cerebral" listener, and a "break-out" for music lovers of all kinds!
