Mlimani Park on their first European tour, this is a stripped-down 12-man version with a front line of two trumpets and two saxes (the full band is a 30-piece), and with overdubs on only one cut. The resulting sound is less rich, but as tight and joyous as "live" recordings tend to be, even in the studio. As a bonus, the group's original lead singer, Hassani Bitchuka, is back after a decade.
