When Zim Ngqawana led a group of 100 drummers, singers, and dancers at Nelson Mandela's inauguration in 1994, he heralded a new era. Zim (saxophonist, flautist, composer, and arranger) performs music grounded in his South African roots and draws on influences ranging from South Africa’s folk and rural traditions to Indian and western classical music, world music and the avant-garde.

Zim Ngqawana, Zimology Жанр: World Fusion Год издания диска: 1998 Издатель (лейбл): Sheer Sound Страна: South Africa Аудиокодек: WavPack . v) Тип рипа: image+. by Craig Harris Zim Ngqawana is one of South Africa's leading jazz musicians. In addition to leading his own band, Ingoma, Ngqawana has played with such influential jazz musicians as Max Roach, Keith Tippett, Abdullah Ibrahim, and Hugh Masakela and with top-notch modern dance ensembles, the Free Flight Dance Company and the Moving Into Dance Company. Ngqawana recorded his third album, Ingoma, in South Africa with his band.

Zim Ngqawana (25 December 1959 – 10 May 2011) was a South African flautist and saxophonist. He was later known as Zimology. The youngest of five children, Ngqawana started playing flute at the age of 21, eventually becoming proficient on alto, tenor and baritone saxophone as well. He dropped out of school prior to meeting university entrance requirements but won entrance to a place at Rhodes University. He later studied for a diploma in Jazz Studies at the University of Natal.

South African horn player (saxophones, flute) Zim Ngqawana defines "Zimology" as "the study of self". In this album, released in 1998, we get a chance to experience the process of Zimology performed by Zim and his quartet. Although influenced by African American giants such as Arthur Blythe, Archie Shepp and Max Roach, most of Zim's music shows deep South African roots. Most of the tunes have a distinct South African rhythm and harmony, while Zim's saxophonics or flutonics connect his home sounds with those of his American mentors.

La parte centrale dell'album è occupata dalla lunga "Dj Zim Suite", che si snoda con lunghi assoli free (un ampio ruolo è svolto dal bravo pianista Nduduzo Makhathini) su un ritmo di batteria costantemente iterativo e chiari riferimenti etnici. Il disco si conclude in forma ancora veemente e passionale con "Hipmonk", altro omaggio al free storico ed alla musica dell'ultimo Coltrane. Tutti i brani sono composti da Zimology, eccetto dove indicato. Personnel: Zim Ngqawana (sax contralto, tenore, flauto, voce); Nduduzo Makhathini (pianoforte); Herbie Tsoaeli (contrabbasso); Ayanda Sikade (batteria). Title: Live at Bird's Eye Year Released: 2008.
