Beyond The Groove Yard 221: Afro Beat Blues

George Klein remembers Hugh Masekela, the recently departed icon of South African jazz, with a survey of his recordings from his early days to sessions in the early 2000s, including music with fellow South African, world, and American musicians in styles ranging from straight ahead jazz to township jive to Afro-beat.
