The colorful cover artwork complements the colorful music by flutist Dave Valentin.Kalahari has ballads that are beautiful and upbeat tunes heavy on syncopated beats with tons of Latin percussion. Included on the album are Wayne Shorter's "Fall" and Sonny Rollins' "Reel Life," in addition to several tunes penned by Valentin. Dave Grusin and Kevin Eubanks make guest appearances. A fine set.
