[AFRICAN JAZZ] No other musician has done more to bring the sounds of Africa to a worldwide audience than Hugh Masekela—except for Fela Kuti, of course. But while Kuti invented his own genre and forced outsiders to come to him, the South Africa-born Masekela has spent much of his 74 years bouncing around both the globe and the musical spectrum, introducing his remarkably expressive trumpet playing to a wide array of styles, from bop to pop to fusion to soul to funk. His greatest achievement is in connecting American jazz back to its African roots, which he accomplished most seminally with 1972’s Home Is Where the Music Is. Here, Masekela pairs with freewheeling pianist Larry Willis, whose partnership began with the Home sessions and stretches all the way up to last year’s Friends
