The 20th CENTURY MASTERS COLLECTION does its usual cursory round-up for Hugh Masekela on this best-of, bringing together 12 tunes from across the South African trumpeter's discography. Given the huge size and range of his output, a slim volume such as this can't come close to representing Masekela, but that doesn't mean the tunes included aren't worth having. Masekela has played jazz, pop, fusion, and traditional South African music, and THE MILLENNIUM COLLECTION gives a little taste of each, with plenty of Masekela's fine trumpet work and singing on offer. The results provide an exciting, if brief, introduction to the artist.
