RE POST: a landmark in SA Jazz

JAZZ IN AFRICA vol. 1 & 2
John Mehegan, Jonas Gwanga, Hugh Masekela, Kippie Moeketsi & all (South Africa, 1959)




I have re-posted the complete session (2CD) recorded in 1959 during a tour of American pianist John Mehegan in South Africa.  The session features the cream of the SA boppers at the time (they were already known as the Jazz Epistles).  Beautiful music and an historic document.  If you did not get it the first time, get it now, you won’t be disappointed.
