Notes & Reviews:

"This happens to be a collection of music by composers of African extraction, but I didn't realize it until after several listens. There is no thread that connects these composers by ethnicity; this is a diverse and complelling selection of music, by any standard. All of this music is marked by distinct personal styles and passionate, anxious momentum...Here is a collection of composers who deserve a higher profile." -Burwasser, Fanfare
