I thought it was an inspiring and uplifting mood compilation. Thanks for playing some great tunes!

Maria Jaber

I love the mood your music creates. Grazie :)

Matthew Halsall

Hey Maria, happy to hear you're digging the music. Thanks for the positive vibes.


Great to hear Dee Alexander again. Under recorded and under appreciated. Maybe if you need a vocalist for the next album?!! Heard about Nduduzo Makhathini in a Nat Birchall interview. Had to wait weeks for a bunch of CD's from him, Benjamin Jephta, Andile Yenana and the great Zim Ngqawana but so much great spirit jazz out of SA..

Matthew Halsall

Hey Benny, I totally agree about Dee Alexander, I saw her perform live at Joy Of Jazz Festival in Johannesburg and she blew me away. Would love to collab with her sometime. I also met Nduduzo in SA, such a cool dude. Benjamin Jephta is also great. So much good music coming through at the moment.


mmm, lovely...
