2006 release. In no book of the history of jazz will you find any mention, let alone a chapter, about Africa's very own style of jazz developed in the early 1950s -- in Bulawayo, to be precise, economic heart of then-Southern Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, and gateway to and from South Africa. This is a grand omission. Here, finally, is the evidence. After all, the only other jazz style born outside of the USA before the 1960s was the gypsy swing of the Hot Club de France. The dominant figure in the Bulawayo scene was saxophonist and bandleader August Musarurwa -- also composer of the world hit "Skokiaan." Includes a 20-page booklet.
