The Mallory-Hall Band
Warning: Last items in stock!
The legendary South African group The Mallory-Hall Band is best known for their Song of Soweto album. It was never released anywhere outside of South African itself, and has been out of print since as far back as 1974. Now, it gets a proper reissue job from Outernational.
The all star cast of West Coast musicians who made up the band toured apartheid South Africa extensively in the mid-1970s so had some real fine playing chops, as you can hear. The 12-piece band for this session featured Kirk Lightsey and Black Jazz recording artist Rudolph Johnson alongside the usual members and is packed with upbeat township jazz.
