Africa/Aroha is a classic NZ jazz release from 1987 from noted NZ musician Jim Langabeer and his band Superbrew – featuring renowned sax player Rick Robertson, alongside a host of others.
The roots of the album are in Langabeer's time playing and studying in NYC late in 1984 – including playing with the master African musician Baba Olatunji – and he and co-founder Young's love for afro-cuban rhythms.
Africa/Aroha is a superb, sensitive record of world-influenced playing, by world-class NZ performers.
