Blending jazz and pan-African musical styles
into his fresh discoveries in nineties Europe
— wiring jungle in London into kwaito in Soweto, say, or test-driving JA dancehall with a kalimba groove,
or running Tswana singing over a beatbox — this young SA pianist
was a kind of bridge between Hugh ‘No Borders’ Masekela and Robert Glasper.
His collaborators in this LP from 2000 include such luminaries as Flora Purim,
Chucho Valdez from Irakere,
and the Cameroonian drummer Brice Wassy.


Er vermischt Jazz und panafrikanische Musikstile
mit seinen Neuentdeckungen im Europa der neunziger Jahre
- Er verdrahtet zum Beispiel Dschungel in London mit Kwaito in Soweto oder testet JA Dancehall mit einem Kalimba-Groove,
oder Tswana-Gesang über eine Beatbox laufen ließ - dieser junge SA-Pianist
war eine Art Brücke zwischen Hugh 'No Borders' Masekela und Robert Glasper.
Zu seinen Mitstreitern auf dieser LP aus dem Jahr 2000 gehören so bekannte Persönlichkeiten wie Flora Purim,
Chucho Valdez von Irakere,
und der kamerunische Schlagzeuger Brice Wassy.

EN: Honest Jon's is an independent record shop based on Portobello Road in Ladbroke Grove, London, operating since 1974. The shop is owned and run by Mark Ainley and Alan Scholefield, who took over from one of the original proprietors, "Honest" Jon Clare. Their record label of the same name is run in conjunction with Damon Albarn, who has been quoted as saying: "I don't really like the term world music. Wherever it comes from, it's all just music, isn't it? Hopefully that's what Honest Jon's is about - to open a few minds to what's out there."[1] The shop sells a multitude of genres of music on vinyl and CD, specializing in jazz, blues, reggae, dance, soul, folk and outernational. It runs a mail-order business from Formed in 2002, the label has released compilation albums such as its London Is The Place For Me series, excavating the music of young Black London, in the years after World War II ("a fascinating archive of material from the 1950s and 60s, chronicling a time when diasporic rhythms were more or less the sole preserve of the small communities responsible for bringing them to these shores");[2] also collections of British folk, Port-of-Spain soca, Afro-Cuban jazz from the Bronx, Jamaican dancehall; and retrospectives of artists including Moondog, Maki Asakawa, Bettye Swann and Cedric "Im" Brooks & The Light of Saba. It has released original music by Candi Staton, Actress, T++, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Mark Ernestus, Trembling Bells, The Good, The Bad & The Queen, Simone White, Shackleton, Michael Hurley, Terry Hall, and the Moritz Von Oswald Trio. It recorded the chaabi orchestra of Abdel Hadi Halo on location in Algiers; Lobi Traore and Kokanko Sata Doumbia in Bamako; and Tony Allen in Lagos. In 2008, Honest Jon's began a run of compilations of early recordings — mostly drawn from the EMI Archive in Hayes, Hillingdon — stretching back to the start of the twentieth century, covering all corners of the world: from the break-up of the Ottoman Empire more than a hundred years ago, to 1950s Beirut, to late-1920s Baghdad, to 1930s East Africa. wikipedia
