The Very Best Of

The Very Best of Abdullah Ibrahim

This delightful collection presents a chronological selection of the South African pianist’s live and studio recordings for the Enja label from 1979 to 1997. Consisting entirely of original compositions, the album reveals the bittersweet elegance and irrepressible optimism of a rare musical genius in a profoundly lyrical blend of classic modern jazz with the celebratory folk and spiritual traditions of South Africa.
