AllMusic Review by

The African Jazz Pioneers have made a name for themselves by recreating the Township Jazz of the 1950s and '60s. Almost entirely instrumental, the only misstep is their update (with vocals) of Miriam Makeba's "Pata Pata." Aside from that, this is fabulous music and would serve well as an introduction to the African Jazz Pioneers themselves, or the sound of Township Jazz.
