  • Gabriel Teodros : 09/24/2021 05:57 AM
    New Music! 'Rejoice' was the first posthumous release from trumpeter Hugh Masekela - considered to be the father of South African jazz - who died in 2018 at 78. Pioneering Afrobeat drummer and Fela Kuti collaborator Tony Allen passed away shortly after the album's release in 2020, at 79. For this forthcoming (Oct 22 release) Special Edition, World Circuit have gone back to the original 2010 mixes and added previously unheard parts from the 2019 sessions to create 8 reimagined bonus mixes. According to Rough Trade: ‘Rejoice’ can be seen as the long overdue confluence of two mighty African musical rivers – a union of two free-flowing souls for whom borders, whether physical or stylistic, are things to pass through or ignore completely. According to Allen, the album deals in “a kind of South African-Nigerian swing-jazz stew”, with its roots firmly in Afrobeat. Allen and Masekela are accompanied on the record by a new generation of well-respected jazz musicians including Tom Herbert (Acoustic Ladyland / The Invisible), Joe Armon-Jones (Ezra Collective), Mutale Chashi (Kokoroko) and Steve Williamson. https://bit.ly/2ZuRb9W Read KEXP's tribute to Allen: https://www.kexp.org/read/2020/4/30/rip-tony-allen-afrobeat-pioneer-and-former-drummer-fela-kuti/
