Description

Back in Stock! 180 gram pure vinyl audiophile edition of Johnny Dyani's classic 1984 SteepleChase LP.

Legendary South African bassist Johnny "Mbizo" Dyani (1947 - 1986) left a significant musical/political legacy in spite of his short life of 39 years. While still a teenager Johnny exiled himself from South Africa where the interracial band The Blue Notes he was a member of was banned under apartheid rule.

Regrettably he could not live to see the end of apartheid but remained an active component of antiapartheid movement throughout his life. Johnny Dyani left a number of superb recordings on SteepleChase during the 70s and this is his most ambitious project with colourful instrumentation including steel drums.

Personnel: Johnny Dyani (bass, piano), Charles Davis (alto saxophone), Ed Epstein (alto saxophone, tenor saxophone), Thomas Östergren (bass), Thomas Dyani (congas), Rudy Smith (steel drums)
