Product Description

Hugh Masekela ~ Beatin Aroun De Bush

Amazon.com

When he wants to be, Hugh Masekela can be a fine jazz trumpeter as well as an imaginative blender of American jazz with the popular music of his native South Africa. On Beatin' Aroun de Bush, however, Masekela opts for a different sort of fusion--easy listening and world beat--as if he were Kenny G in Soweto. Playing the simplest of harmonic variations on pretty, bouncy pop tunes with splashes of South African flavor, Masekela delivers American pop instrumental music with very little jazz or African content. --Geoffrey Himes

Format: Audio CD
Hugh Masekela is a hero. Exiled from South Africa as a result of the authorities banning him way back(whole chunks of albums at government controlled radio stations were scratched off thereby preventing them from being played, plus more ridiculous and bizarre acts of repression)he travelled the USA and Europe, establishing himself as one of the greats in the jazz world.
This album is bang up to date (at the time of its release) with the then current social-political scene in SA without losing any of its musical appeal.
The best track has to be Polina, which I originally heard on the Dave Grusin album 'Migration' (check this out too!). This is pure Masekela Magic - it will haunt you forever...
I've seen the great man live, in Johannesburg at the legendary Kippies jazz venue, and also at Brighton University here in England. I feel honoured to be able to say that I've been in the same room as the man - but hey, don't write me off as a sycophant. Listen to Polina alone, and you'll be lining up for more.

Review based on original CD

I see that Amazon only offers a MP3 of Hugh Masekela's "Beatin' Aroun De Bush" which was recorded from 1990 to 1992. I have the original CD. Due to supply & demand another CD bites the dust to MP3. As with almost all of Hugh Masekela's albums or recordings we get a mixed bag of Pop as in "Steppin' Out" from Joe Jackson & "Rock With You" from Rod Temperton, to Jazz, to African music. This recording took several years to record & produce because Hugh Masekela was still waiting in the USA for the Apartheid to end in South Africa. This time around Hugh Masekela wrote 5 songs all in different styles of music.
