Abdullah Ibrahim (Dollar Brand) - Zimbabwe (1987)

Format: flac + cue + log
Genre: Jazz
Release Date: 1987
Label: Enja Records

This was a nicely blended, somewhat mellow and seemingly quite finished recording by Abdullah Ibrahim with Carlos Ward (alto sax, flute), Essiet Okun Essiet (bass), and Don Mumford (drums) called Zimbabwe. Interspaced with non-originals were four Ibrahim compositions, most of which were inspired by the imagery from Ibrahim's South African roots.
