Sathima Bea Benjamin South African jazz singer Sathima Bea Benjamin celebrates the January 22 reissue of A Morning in Paris--her 1963 masterpiece recorded with Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, and Abdullah Ibrahim as pianists-- at Sweet Rhythm on Wednesday, January 23, 2008. Joining Sathima for the concert are pianist Stephen Scott, bassist Buster Williams, and drummer George Gray.

Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, Grammy-nominated singer Sathima Bea Benjamin has established herself as a master interpreter of American jazz standards, having recorded with some of the most legendary figures in jazz. Her work in jazz and in support of the exiled ANC during apartheid earned her in 2004, the Order of Ikhamanga, South Africa's highest honor.

A Morning in Paris, recorded in 1963, produced by Duke Ellington, and featuring Sathima performing with Duke, Billy Strayhorn, and Abdullah Ibrahim sharing piano duties, will be available in stores January 22, 2008. The album is currently available for download from online stores.
