Press Clipping

It should be enough that this record sounds good but the politics behind it is interesting as well. Recorded now that we're a decade into post apartheid South Africa, the youngsters are taking jazz back after years of cultural oppression. Sounding like this could have been produced by Stuff and Antisa Music, it's wonderful jazz that sounds as much 52nd Street as it does African. Recorded for Youssou N'Dour's own label, there's more than enough penumbra going on here if the killer singing and playing isn't enough to get you into the tent on your own. These new kids bring their old souls to the fore for a solidly swinging, good time throughout. Check it out.
