Format: Audio CD
South African horn player (saxophones, flute) Zim Ngqawana defines "Zimology" as "the study of self". In this album, released in 1998, we get a chance to experience the process of Zimology performed by Zim and his quartet. Although influenced by African American giants such as Arthur Blythe, Archie Shepp and Max Roach, most of Zim's music shows deep South African roots. Most of the tunes have a distinct South African rhythm and harmony, while Zim's saxophonics or flutonics connect his home sounds with those of his American mentors. Track 9, Qula Kwedini, is a perfect example of music that is completely South African yet obviously connected with African American jazz.

I had a chance to meet Zim in person. His gentle, quiet fire, is as evident in his personal conduct as it is in his music. This is important music for anyone who into the spiritual aspect of African and African American music.

I discovered this artist while watching Jacob's Cross, a fantastic drama series on the Africa Channel. This artist's music is on the show's soundtrack. It was so incredible that I had to slo-mo the closing credits to find out who did the music. I've purchased several of "Zim's" CDs and they're all great. I keep a couple in my car's CD player to relax on my drive home from work or whenever I need to ease my mind.
