Bea Benjamin African Songbird

Bea Benjamin
African Songbird


The opener is a first-round knockout: moody and hurting, soaring and visionary, with him-indoors Dollar Brand threading electric keys through the free-fall, doubled-up, deep-funk drums and bass. Then some delicate Cape Town swing, featuring Basil 'Manenberg' Coetzee on flute; and finally Sathima herself alone at land's end, like a bird.
Originally released in 1976 on Rashid Vallyís As-shams label, this is a long overdue revive, perfectly realized.
