The story of Cape Jazz is inextricably bound up with the struggles of apartheid and hopes of freedom. Featuring legendary saxophonists Basil ‘Manenberg’ Coetzee and Robbie Jansen along with the classic grooves of Pacific Express and The Tony Schilder Trio, this Rough Guide provides a unique insight into the Mother City’s musical heartbeat.

The perfect introduction to Cape Town’s distinctive jazz legacy . An uplifting collection of tracks from artists whose song-writing was shaped by racial segregation and poverty during apartheid . An album of classic tracks from the home of Cape Jazz recordings, Mountain Records. Featuring legendary saxophonists Basil ‘Manenberg’ Coetzee and Robbie Jansen. Musicians who provided anthems of resistance and challenged the Apartheid State through cultural activism. A distinctive brand of jazz, which combines many different musical influences from the carnival to the church and beyond

Following on from the success of other world jazz albums in the Rough Guide range. An album which demonstrates the strong transatlantic dialogue between the civil rights movements in the USA and the anti-apartheid struggle through the language of jazz. A celebration of the legacy of the pioneering musicians and the continuation of their collaborative spirit in South Africa. A pertinent reminder of the intrinsic link between music and the dismantling of oppression
