The Best of Bheki Mseleku

[Sheer Sound SLCD 089]

Bheki Mseleku is best known for his virtuosity on piano but this talented multi- instrumentalist is a gifted saxophone and guitar player as well as being a composer and arranger. This is music that is from the very soul of South Africa's townships, evocative jazz that derives its tone from the blues and the often difficult lives many lead in these areas. The material is taken from six of his previous CDs and is a great way of discovering this brilliant musician and his music. Graham Radley
