Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2005-04-16 
Post-bop with heavy African-music influence. Lots of variety here, from creative jazz to near-"World" music to gospel. See also her other excellent album, "Afrika Rising."

1- Busy and bustling
2- Like an African folk tune, brassy and casually mid/fast
3- Midtempo funky strut
4- Gospel chant and harmony singing
5- Quiet African groove w/vocal
6- Celestial swirling
7- Slow and swaying, lots of cello
8- Jaunty swing in 7/4
9- Sunny township feel
10- Mid/fast chaotic swirl, a bit circus-like 11- A capella gospel
12- Jazz vocals, cocktail R&B
13- Mid/fast, nice percussive feel
