Promise Of A Future

LP (Item 12160) Uni, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 32

Classic work from Hugh Masekela – and the album that pushed him over the top! The record features his version of "Grazin In The Grass", a runaway instrumental hit when it was issued – and a sly little groover that was based upon some earlier South African pop melodies that Hugh copped from his roots. The group's a tight little quintet with Al Abreu on tenor and soprano sax, William Henderson on piano, Chuck Carter on drums, and Henry Franklin on bass. The whole thing's great – and tracks include "Stop", "Bajabula Bonke", "There Are Seeds To Sow", "Vuca", "Almost Seedless", and "No Face, No Name, and No Number". (Original pressing. Side 1 has a mark that clicks on track five. Cover has a cutout hole and some seam splitting.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
