Somewhat (sadly) timely to get to this album at this point. Just last month I was on an Australian radio station paying tribute to the great Hugh Masekela. I had a couple of his albums – but not this one. And had never heard this.
It’s a terrific album – utterly joyous – just great soul-jazz (and a twist of Afro-Beat).
I knew Masekela from some of his guest spots first of all, and then from bargain-bin hunting.
He was tremendous.
This album is nowhere near his first, nor anywhere near his last but it’s certainly a good place to start.
Dive in. The music just flows through him…
