Beyond The Groove Yard 222: Uptownship

George Klein continues his tribute to Hugh Masekela, the recently departed icon of South African jazz, with a survey of his recordings from the 1960s to sessions from the early 2000s, including fellow South African, world, and American musicians in styles ranging from straight ahead jazz to township jive to Afro-beat.
