A small contribution to the south African thread running through these pages, and by way of a response to a request, here's Music for xaba a great fusion of free jazz , tribal psychedelia and those unforgettable township melodies.
All these players had strong associations with Don Cherry.. and these sessions have a marked resemblance to many of his projects...(long may he b4e remembered).
To those who are familiar with Cherry and the many classics in the free ethno tribal trance out sub genre, but don't know this..its well worth checking out.
note this is my rip, and thus different to that which first appeared at jizz relics,and has since done heavy duty in the blogosphere.
For my money feelings ,on side one and gorans soder the final track contain some of the best Feza playing on wax.
