This release presents Dollar Brand’s (aka Abdullah Ibrahim) first trio album and his earliest recording as a leader, as well as one of the very first jazz productions made in Africa. This rare LP, Dollar Brand Plays Sphere Jazz (Gallo Continental ZB8047), reissued in its entirety for the first time ever on CD, is presented here with its original South African cover.
Also included here is Brand’s complete long unavailable previous LP, Jazz Epistle – Verse 1 (Gallo Continental CON T-14), issued as by The Jazz Epistles, and on which the same trio is augmented to a sextet with the addition of three reeds, among them the great Hugh Masekela.
