Gonna go out on a limb on #2 and say Chet Baker w/Phil Urso? Some tenor player that's mostly Mobley except when he's not, and those are pretty interesting moments.

Another guess would be KD, but I think I know his records, and I don't recognize this one.

None of these players on the record! Most if not all of them must have played with Baker though.

Just to be clear, it's Abdoulaye Diabate the pianist from Mali, NOT Abdoulaye Diabate the great Malian singer, arranger and bandleader.

PS

" It's further South and it's a Bantu language! "

So if it's East Africa somewhere - Kenya or Tanzania I'd guess - it's RIGHT off my map.

Not East Africa, much southward!!

Ah! A clue, by cracky!

As you're French, I'd expect Antilles to mean Martinique, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Martin... or Guadeloupe & its dependencies. There's a sax player from Guadeloupe who was pretty popular in France, name of Al Lirvat. Am I on the wrong island?

There is actually a pianist from the French Antilles in the BFT, but not on this track. Track 11 is located in the Greater Antilles!

Oh Goodness! Botswana or Namibia then. I only have three Namibian albums (two are reggae) and zero from Botswana. This DOES come from an arid area, doesn't it?

Am I right in thinking Greater Antilles means EVERY island in the Caribbean?

Not those countries (and not South Africa either)! I have no idea how dry/arid is the region where Shona people live.

I would say Greater Antilles consists of most islands western from Puerto Rico.

But NOT Turks & Caicos, because I can recognise Ripsaw music :) (One day that will be big. One day, maybe...)

OK, it's Haiti. I'm gonna have another listen.

Flippin' 'eck, Tucker, it's Jackie Mitto!

Can't think of the title and I have so much Mitto I can't listen to it all.
