O’s Notes: There’s a cool, festive, Latin flavor that resides across the entire set that makes Safrojazz enjoyable listening. That vibe is actually a blend of South African music and American music: Safrojazz, created by saxophonist, composer and leader of Ojoyo, Morris Goldberg. Plays Safrojazz is a rerelease of the 1996 original and it still packs a punch! Chris Botti (t), Anton Fig (d) and Cyro Baptista (perc) are among the talented band members. The festive spirit was readily embraced then and is still fresh. “Harare”, “Madagascar” and “Sophiatown Society” are highlights.
