Críticas:

"Muller, herself a white South African academic working in the US and with a family situation that includes multiple ethnicities, adoptive and otherwise, does a remarkable job in piecing together Benjamin's life, work and significance within the context of post-apartheid history, using Sarah Nuttal's recent writings on 'entanglement' for theoretical support." Brian Morton, The Wire, February 2012 "Musical Echoes, written by a white South African academic but with integral input from Benjamin herself... Muller tells the story of Benjamin - the woman deemed insufficiently commercial and insufficiently African - from teenage talent show victories to setting up the Ekapa label in the 1980s and finally being awarded the Order of Ikhamanga by President Mbeki in 2004. Yet Ibrahim has cited the loss of information as one legacy of apartheid, and the broader context - filling in those gaps - is also key to the appeal of Muller's meticulously researched book." - Murcus O'Dair, Jazzwise, February 2012 "Sathima Bea Benjamin ought to share company with the likes of Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald and Betty Carter... [She] never compromis[es] her own musical vision, refusing to either remake herself into an 'American' jazz singer or into what the world imagines to be authentically 'African.' She is who she is, Sathima Bea Benjamin, South Africa's greatest jazz singer and one of the best the world has ever known." Robin D. G. Kelley, JazzTimes "...Landmark book...The book, grounded in the biographical recollections of veteran vo calist Sathima Bea Benjamin, tells us a great deal about the tectonic shift that has been taking place in musicology outside this country." Gwen Ansell, businessday.co.za, 17th January 2012 "Musical Echoes not only introduces a very important vocalist, Sathima Bea Benjamin, to audiences who may not know of her. It also makes a great contribution to scholarship on jazz, world music, cultural theory, and the African diaspora. It challenges us to reconsider and revise the nationalist narratives that characterize much writing on jazz, and it provides a new framework for discussing the production, circulation, and transformation of musical cultures."--Farah Jasmine Griffin, author of If You Can't Be Free, Be a Mystery: In Search of Billie Holiday

Reseña del editor:

Musical Echoes tells the life story of the South African jazz vocalist Sathima Bea Benjamin. Born in Cape Town in the 1930s, Benjamin came to know American jazz and popular music through the radio, movies, records, and live stage and dance band performances. She was especially moved by the voice of Billie Holiday. With Dollar Brand/Abdullah Ibrahim, she left South Africa in 1962 for Europe, where they met and recorded with Duke Ellington. Benjamin and Ibrahim spent their lives on the move between Europe, the United States, and South Africa until 1977, when they left Africa for New York City and declared their support for the African National Congress. In New York, Benjamin established her own record company and recorded her own music independently from Abdullah. Musical Echoes, which includes a CD, reflects twenty years of archival research and conversation between Benjamin and the South African musicologist Carol Ann Muller. The narrative of Benjamin's life, as well as the political and musical contexts in which it has unfolded, is interspersed with Muller's reflections on the vocalist's story and its implications for jazz history.
