    To purchase: Composed by Randy Weston, arranged by Willard Jenkins.

    The pianist, composer, and bandleader Randy Weston is one of the world's most influential jazz musicians and a remarkable storyteller whose career has spanned five continents and more than six decades.

    Packed with fascinating anecdotes, African Rhythms is Weston's life story, as told by him to the distinguished music journalist Willard Jenkins. It encompasses Weston's childhood in Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, where his parents and other members of their generation imbued him with pride in his African heritage, and his introduction to jazz and early years as a musician in the artistic ferment of mid-twentieth-century New York.
