I had such a great time on my treadmill this morning boogie-ing along to songs from Paul Simon's old "Graceland" album that I just wanted to pass it along to others... If you're looking for some great upbeat music with a south African groove that is guaranteed to move your feet, DO check it out!
Although ALL the musicians are top-notch, the bass player stands out to me with his fluid, fretless, funky, punchy lines just moving the whole band along...WOW! The newer remastered version includes a version of "Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes" in which the bass player is the ONLY musician accompanying the vocalists and it's just AMAZING!
Here's a link to the CD...also individual tracks can be downloaded as mp3 files for only 99 cents apiece:
