South African vocalist Sathima Bea Benjamin's long-lost debut album, A Morning in Paris, recorded in 1963, produced by Duke Ellington, and featuring Sathima in performance with Duke, Billy Strayhorn, and Abdullah Ibrahim sharing piano duties, is once again available, released in stores today.

Sathima Bea Benjamin will celebrate the CD's release 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.
