|Ernest Dawkins chronology|
"Toucouleur", named after a Senegalese tribe, was developed in 2000 when Dawkins started his partnership with the Montu Dance Theater of Chicago. "Third Line and the Cape Town Shuffle" features the Southern-Baptist-style preaching of New Horizons Ensemble member Ameen Muhammad. "Dolphy and the Monk Dance" is a tribute to saxophonist Vandy Harris. "Jazz to Hip Hop" is a scale-down sexet version from Dawkins' involvement in the Meet the Composers Residency and features the lyrics of Khari B. the Disco Poet, son of Mwata Bowden.

In his review for AllMusic, Alex Henderson states "Cape Town Shuffle isn't for bop snobs, but those who appreciate an inside/outside approach to avant-garde jazz will find these performances to be quite enriching."
The All About Jazz review by Mark Corroto says "That is butt-shakin' blues based jazz. Like Charles Mingus recalling the field hollers, the Art Ensemble of Chicago bringing the beat straight out of Africa, and Dizzy Gillespie spinning into new heights with bebop, Dawkins stirs his listeners to get up and move."
