Bheki Mseleku ‎– Celebration. Label: World Circuit ‎– WCD 028. Format: CD, Album. Producer – Bheki Mseleku, Marvin Smith, Russell Herman. Soprano Saxophone – Courtney Pine (tracks: 10), Steve Williamson (tracks: 4). Tenor Saxophone – Jean Toussaint (tracks: 5).

South African pianist Bheki Mseleku has been a familiar name in England's jazz circles but, to date, has not recorded for any major or independent American label. This album, recorded mostly in London in 1991, has now been issued domestically by Rounder. While his percussive, slashing style is reminiscent of McCoy Tyner and Don Pullen, he has his own voicings, phrasing, rhythmic drive, and sound. A corps of talented saxophonists handle frontline duties, among them Courtney Pine, Jean Toussaint, and Steve Williamson.

Bhekumuzi Hyacinth Mseleku, generally known as Bheki Mseleku (3 March 1955 – 9 September 2008), was a jazz musician from South Africa. He was a pianist, saxophonist, guitarist, composer and arranger who was entirely self-taught.
