Ndikho Xaba : A Gift

A Message from Mama Nomusa;

Greetings all,

On Nelson Mandela's 94th birthday - July 18, 2012 - we were honored to have Gwen Ansell, Jazz History Writer for Business Day in South Africa do an excellently crafted review of Baba Ndikho Xaba's Anthology CD - Sunsets. Click on this link to view it. Feedback is appreciated.

The CD (which includes Nomusa, Shwabada and features Ndikho on digeredoo etc.) is now available on CD Baby.

We can use all the help we can get getting the word out. And we are very grateful to you Katonah for keeping this blog going. 

Peace, Nomusa & Ndikho Xaba

Earl Shabazz 7"

Earl Shabazz on S and M Records.

Deep, rare 7" from the early 1970's.
As it always seems to be, it's the soulful jazz support of tenor and walking bass behind the poetry that set the heavy tone to this little gem.
