Why do we like this?

Shane Cooper, head of the fresh jazz ensemble Mabuta, specifically asked me not to drift off on one of my odd tangents. It's not an unfair request, I vaguely remember my last review touting that I was a horse person, or something like that.

Cooper's latest project boasts an epic line-up of South African musicians. All of whom have contributed to what could be the closest rendition of the soundtrack to my play; 'Cats in Space: When Pussy Met Feivel.'

It's a romance, mostly. Essentially, it's how the domestic cat population would adjust to their owners habituating space. The play highlights a connection between two unlikely felines in the midst of planetary travel, where a really cute (in my opinion) narrative arises.

Fuck. Shane, my bad.

Very big ups to the band:

  • Shane Cooper -- Basses, synths, guitars
  • Bokani Dyer -- Rhodes
  • Marlon Witbooi -- Drums
  • Sisonke Xonti -- Tenor sax
  • Robin Fassie-Kock -- Trumpet
  • With artwork by Rajni Perera
