Live at Jazzclub De Hoop, Waregem, Belgium, 1 July 1979
January will see Ogun kick off its 2012 release schedule with the second recording from the Blue Notes 1979 tour of Belgium and Holland, taken from tour organiser Rob Sotemann s tape archive. Whereas the critically acclaimed first volume from this archive, Spiritual Knowledge And Grace (OGCD035) featured an impromptu collaboration between Blue Notes members Louis Moholo-Moholo, Dudu Pukwana & Johnny Dyani and American tenor sax powerhouse Frank Wright, Before The Wind Changes focuses on the established quartet line-up with Chris McGregor at the piano and features an incendiary performance from Waregem. The Blue Notes of course is a key band in UK and South African jazz history, and one in whom there is continual interest. This first release of a storming live set is a major event for all followers of the band. Interest in them has heightened through a growing number of related releases (particularly the Chris McGregor titles put out recently by Fledg'ling).
