Acclaimed pianist Abdullah Ibrahim certainly knows how to capture his audience with beautiful & melodic compositions. This album "African Magic" captures the essence of this culture and enchants with every note. Belden Bullock (bass) and Sipho Kunene (drums) accompany this lented artist in presenting music that does indeed have a magic touch. Recorded live on July 13th, 2001 in Germany, you will enjoy a generous dose of 24 tracks. "Third Line Samba" begins the journey with an enchanting tune. "Blues For A Hip King" is an upbeat toe tappin' track. "Tuang Guru" is a gentle composition. Delightful. "In A Sentimental Mood" is also a sweet sounding song. Some wonderful music here.
