A little bit of shameless self-promotion!
The new CD “African Numbers” is finally here. This has been one of our toughest CDs to complete for a variety of reasons, but I feel it was all worth it in the end. We’re thrilled with the way the CD has turned out, thanks to wonderful performances by some great musicians. The album once again features Relebogile “Lebo” Mabotja on lead vocals, and Kelly Petlane on sax, flute and pennywhistle, as well as the Redhill School kids. This time around we were fortunate enough to record one of South Africa’s top bass players, Concord Nkabinde, who not only played some cooking basslines, but also did a great job as a backing vocalist.
I played all the guitars on the album, and Erika Strydom did the female backing vocals. All songs were composed, recorded, programmed and mixed by Erika & me.
We’ve did our best to make the album as “adult friendly” as possible, and have styled the songs on a variety of African grooves, even making use of some odd-meters (Check out the song “The Big 5”).
