Really creative work from the South African scene of the 70s – a jazz record, but one that was done at that moment when musicians on the scene were throwing so many other great elements into the mix as well – really moving past any conventions in standard jazz, to create some very memorable sounds of their own!

There's currents of funk and blues in the music, and tracks are long and really stretch out with some relaxed interplay between the musicians, with plenty of room for solos – work from leader Pat Matshikiza on piano and keyboards, Sipho Gumede on bass, Duke Makasi on tenor, George Tyefumani on trumpet, Sandile Shange on guitar and Gilbert Mathews on drums
