Top 10 Jazz CDs from 2002 (L.A. Times, USA)

From his Cameroon birthplace, through his student days in Paris, to his move to New York, Gino Sitson has carried his precious instrument with him: his amazing 4-octave voice. The stations on his journey are reflected in the music of this album. Cool and funky jazzy grooves combine with explosively energetic Cameroonian rhythms and virtuoso vocals with roots in the polyphonic traditions of his homeland. The songs are in his mother language Medumba. The title, Song Zin`..., translates as "I’m gonna tell you" and he has many stories to tell. Listen up!


"Creating a colorful blend of African elements with American jazz..."

Jazz Review

"He's from Cameroon and can best be described as a second-generation Bobby McFerrin, with added African seasoning -- a creator of rhythmically mesmerizing vocal panoramas."

"This young Cameroonian melodist with smiling eyes, elegant gestures and delirious vocal arobatics brings listeners a jewel, full of lightness and humanity."
