Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2008-05-30 
Another archival (1971) recording from this joyous "mixed" band out of South Africa's apartheid days. A bouncing and joyous sound, with plenty of space for free and loose soloing, all cased in traditional big-band motifs. Great for all varieties of jazz/world shows.

Harry Beckett - trumpet
Marc Charig - trumpet
Nick Evans - trombone
Malcolm Griffiths - trombone
Chris McGregor - piano
Harry Miller - bass
Louis Moholo - drums
Dudu Pukwana - alto sax
Mike Osborne - alto sax
Alan Skidmore - tenor sax
Gary Windo - tenor sax

1- Spoken band intro
2- Sunny carnival sound, infectiously happy. Free soloing space, but not too wild.
3- Crazy free improv by the group. A more spare and free piece but still fast-paced. Nice trumpet solo. Busy full-band chaos later on.
4- Big swaying riff w/horn wildness
5- Quiet improv interlude, still keeps up a good pace
6- Fast rolling big-band themes. Big brash horns. Choppy, squirrelly sax solo. Yeah! (but 15 mins. long)
7- Fun Charlie Chaplain bounce. Swingy.
8- Rollicking '50s-TV-sounding theme to end it. (2 mins. long)
9- Applause! and band intros.
