Wonderful John. Absolutely wonderful. It's good to see Sathima emerge from the shadow of her talented husband and get her due recognition.

I remember seeing her for the first time as a boy at a benefit the Rhodesia/Zimbabwe liberation struggle at St John of the Divine in NYC. I was impressed by how she got the audience to quiet down as she sang quietly and very, very slowly.
