Review:This Rough Guide explores the jazz scene of one of the world's greatest musical powerhouses. From the progressive 1960s, when many of South Africa's finest musicians were forced into exile by the constraints of apartheid, to the modern era and the sound of the new 'rainbow nation', it also takes in the great jazz era of the 1950s. 'Another top-notch Rough Guide compilation, this spans 40 years of distinctive voices and instrumentations' HMV Choice Artists include: Abdullah Ibrahim, Miriam Makeba, Pops Mohamed, Chris McGregor, Lemmy Special, African Jazz Pioneers, Sipho Mabuse and Bheki Mseleku
