RESPECT (BW2094)

"Robert 'Doc' Mthalane may not be a household name, but the South African master guitarist spent much of the 1990's both playing and writing songs for the acclaimed Zulu singer Busi Mhlongo and her group Twasa. Sadly Doc fell victim to tuberculosis and died prematurely in 1998, but not before leaving us with one last exquisite album of uplifting and heart-rending beauty. From the languid opening chords of Eva, the slowly surging crescendoes of Masihlanganemi to the rousing rhythmic call to action of Mamambo, this is one of those rare albums that can enrich your life and soothe your soul."

Rolf Schimmermann - JENESAISQUOI
Jazz - Europe

JENESAISQUOI

The Jenesaisquoi Project displays to remarkable effect another side of the song writing and arranging talents of Swiss keyboard virtuoso Rolf Schimmermann. The melodic, soulful side of his character is centre stage, with the spotlight falling on the stunning vocal talent of Sam Howard, a new torch singer who hails from Bath, but who comes spiritually from Philadelphia.

Making his presence felt throughout is Ray Russell on guitar. He manages to create a simultaneously soulful and bluesy feel without drawing attention away from the core melodies. Fellow B&W Music artist, Mark Jefferis, guests as vocalist on 'A Dream of You', which, as lyricist, he invests with particular feeling over a richly textured arrangement featuring Andy Mackintosh on sax.

Rolf Schimmermann - Suru
Jazz - Europe

SURU

Rolf is an exceptionally talented Swiss composer on piano and keyboards, with a quite unique appreciation of how keyboards and percussion can work eloquently together. He wanted to put some of these ideas into practice and needed an exceptional drummer/percussionist to work with. Cue Fredy Studer. The bass was supplied by Dill Katz and a dream horn section arrived courtesy of Stuart Brookes and Tony Roberts.
