Great Cd

"One of Jonathan's greatest cds. This really was before the R & B influence on him and so if you are looking for that South African jazz bias you will find it on this cd. Personally for contemporary jazz I prefer what we call songs without words though I do not mind the old stuff from Louis Armstrong. My favorite song on this cd is track # 7 "Thinking of you" which I can play for 365 days without getting bored. This is a cd that has stood the test of time and reminds me how the djs on Zambian radio would play it almost everyday. Those were days when I worked for Johnson and Johnson in Ndola and hence this cd brings sweet memories to me. Remember these were the days of Earl Klugh's Wishful thinking, Tropical legs etc and if you had this combination (Earl Klugh & Jonathan Butler) you were complete. Released in 1986 but believe me it sounds like it was released yesterday. Another must have for any jazz fan. This is a cd that I dedicate to Sam Sakala on Radio Phoenix in Zambia and Ben Kangwa on ZNBC radio. Thanks guys for having pioneered the playing of jazz on our national radio stations. The good news is that Jonathan has released another cd which comes out June 2002. Thanks Jonathan for answering the requests of your fans. At least we are getting a new release from you every year. Keep up your excellent work."
Just wonderful

"I am another fan from Zambia. I used to listen to this music in a town called Kasama in Zambia where I grew up. I really loved this music but I could only listen to it on radio. Every time, a tune like this would play just before the news on Radio Two and I would be lost in it. But I did not know who the artist was. Neither could I afford it if I knew. When I left Zambia, I kept looking for it but never heard it anywhere else in the US. After five years of listening to samples over the internet, my efforts paid off. I found it! Whooooo!!!! I got the CD two years ago and it's like a part of my life. It really makes me relive a part of life from 1987-90. This music really touches me in a inique way. This and Earl Klugh's Master of Supreme-you got it made!!! To you who loves this, I also recommend Earl Klugh's Soda Mountain Shuffle, Life Sories and Master of Supreme- They made my teen age on Zambia's only Radio Two!!!!!!"
Simply Brilliant

"This is an album you should own!!!! The songs are peaceful and without too much clutter and the melodies evoke images of Africa. I'm at a loss to say which are my favourites because they are all so good. It's also nice to hear guitarists with their own unique style. Jonathan's really good and it shows on every song. He really does Africa proud!!!!"
