Julian Burnett is a SAfrican music fan. He loves the pennywhistle sound and has discovered the magic of Capetown Jazz through Morris Goldberg. Julian first heard James Armoed playing pennywhistle while busking on St.George's Street in Cape Town, while out on a visit from Las Vegas, USA, a few years ago. Within the first few notes he could tell that James had exceptional talent. His son accompanied him on guitar and his grandson on bongos - both exceptionally talented musicians.
Julian did a rough cassette tape recording & on his return to the USA played it for the legendary New York Malawian musician, Tony Bird who then suggested that Julian contact David Marks of 3rd Ear Music - as Tony & David have known each other for 30 years. Julian checked out the 3rd Ear Music website & called David in Durban to arrange to have a CD recorded. The rest is History - or is that Retro? As they say.
Julian's involvement with Tony has been to encourage him to complete his Precious Africa CD, which he has been working on for the last 6 years. It is a beautiful CD & notable for the track that features Ladysmith Black Mambazo on Hamba Willie Hamba - about the legendary SAfrican Marathon runner, Willie Mathola - who won Gold at the Atlanta Olympics. Julian is also executive producer & backer for Morris Goldberg's new CD currently being recorded in New York with his band OJOYO - which includes 2 fellow South Africans Tony Cedras on keyboards and Bakithi Khumalo on bass - all featured on Paul Simon's Gracelands album - with Morris playing the famous pennywhistle solo on "You can call me Al".
