Amoeba Review

At 84, Cape Town jazz legend Abdullah Ibrahim (formerly Dollar Brand) has concocted a jazz record that, without sounding vintage, stirs up feelings of another time, when the notes of a piano and gentle walk of a stand up bass could speak more than any words or electrified instruments could. On "Dreamtime" pianist Ibrahim and Co. build a world of inviting mystery, like a welcome lucid dream, while the title track, with its harmonica and flute, is elegantly straightforward. "Jabula" is the standout track, with exciting rhythms and syncopated horn melodies that instantly transport you to a bustling port town, a melting pot of cultures and ideas.
