Abdullah Ibrahim - African Piano

Pianist Abdullah Ibrahim was still known as "Dollar Brand" when he recorded this solo piano set for ECM. The continuous live performance (which is under 39 minutes) explores eight of Ibrahim's originals, none of which are all that memorable. Ibrahim was still in the process of finding his own sound at the time, although his improvisations (which use repetition and vamps effectively) have their interesting moments. Still, Ibrahim's later work is more significant. - Allmusic
