CD


Maybe one of the greatest records we've ever heard from legendary South African drummer Louis Moholo – and that's saying a lot, given all his amazing music over the past few decades! The album's a dedication to Moholo's old group – The Blue Notes – but it's got this soaring, spiritual quality that's even more ambitious than that combo's great recordings – an amazing amalgam of horns that comes across with this rich, majestic feel – and given some occasional vocal inspiration by singer Francine Luce! The whole thing has the quality of some post-colonial avant jazz session from 70s Paris – or maybe some of the bolder American work of the spiritual jazz underground of the same time – and in addition to Luce's vocals and Moholo's drums and percussion, the set also features Henry Lowther on trumpet, Alan Tomlinson on trombone, Ntshuks Bonga on soprano and alto sax, Jason Yarde on soprano and alto, Alexander Hawkins on piano, and John Edwards on bass. Titles include "Ismite Is Might", "For The Blue Notes", "Creole", "Lost Opportunities", "The Tag", "Zanele", "Dikeledi", and "Ithi Gui".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.
