  1. The sharbee link for jazz'n'jive doesn;t seem to be working...

  2. I just checked it, works for me. What is the problem you are seeing?

  3. Wow, this is great, thanks!

  4. Hey, the link is working fine now, must've just been my computer having a bad day :)

    thanks for posting this album it's simply wonderful, I play it alot in the community centre/venue where i work and it makes such a good atmosphere :)

  5. Amazing... I think this is possibily the best website in the world. Such a good album, cant help dancing.

  6. Heya,

    If you are into South African jazz, you should seriously check out Mpumi Dhlamini's debut album, "Combined Elements".

    Trust me, it's a great buy! For a 21 year old, he is pretty talented..I've heard him live a couple of times, and I have one word - awesome!

    You can listen to some of his songs on his website,

    Let me know what you think..


  7. thanks so much for this!!! i've been looking for a song that hugh masekela played with the father huddleston band and one of em is on this cd. many thanks!
