An emotional singer with a great deal of credibility, Sathima Bea Benjamin is heard at her peak on this set, a quartet outing with tenor saxophonist Ricky Ford, pianist Larry Willis, bassist Buster Williams and drummer Billy Higgins. Her "Winnie Mandela — Beloved Heroine" is heartfelt, the vocalist puts plenty of feeling into "You Are My Heart's Delight" and Noel Coward's "I'll See You Again," and her other originals (dedicated to Duke Ellington, Africa and music in general) are intelligent, sincere and passionate in a subtle way. This CD is recommended.
Born: 17 October 1936 in Johannesburg, South Africa
Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s
