AllMusic Review by

South Africa is the only country to have a mature jazz style clearly not simply American in origin, and separate from the jazz-influenced but more local "township jazz." When the two meet, the results are tremendous. Some of the musicians on this splendid concert recording are black, some white. Some of the music is S.A. jazz, some straight jazz. The only flaw is the lack of notes on the players.
