“A case in point is vocalist Lindiwe Maxolo, whose Time (Maxolaysa) launched late last year. Sedibeng-born, UCT-trained Maxolo has worked as both soloist and backing singer in company ranging from Sibongile Khumalo to Dave Grusin. Nevertheless, Time comes as a surprise, presenting mainly new compositions from Maxolo herself, pianists Afrika Mkhize, Andile Yenana and Nduduzo Makhathini and drummer Ayanda Sikade, and an ensemble including those names, bassist Herbie Tsoaeli, trumpeter Sydney Mavundla, percussionist Thomas Dyani and many more. As the opener, Let It Rain, demonstrates, Maxolo is a strong songwriter as well as a stylish singer. She has a sweet, mid-range voice with some appealing smoky overtones; her improvisations can also employ the earthier sounds of traditional vocalese (Mama Ngiyabonga). Moments of ethereal beauty (Yenana’s Dream Walker) and rousing, hymn-like inspiration (Sikade’s Rise Again) alternate with lighter songs of romance.”
