Volume 3 in Strut's fantastic wide-ranging three-part series exploring underground South African music during the late '60s and '70s. This time focusing on township Jazz from 1963 - 1984! Volume 3 is a long overdue retrospective of the rich Jazz scene happening in South Africa from the early '60s to mid '80s. While many major artists lived in exile abroad and furthered their careers globally, many of South Africa's finest Jazz players remained, performing under the strict auspices of the Separate Amenities Act. 'Next Stop Soweto Vol. 3' is the story of the music that survived in South Africa during this mid-'60s to mid-'80s era. The album features many of the recognized South African Jazz greats like saxophonist DUDU PUKWANA and drummer EARLY MABUZA, the potent Soul Jazz grooves of THE HESHOO BESHOO GROUP and THE DRIVE and some of the many artists creating unique fusions like PHILIP TABANE's 'Malombo' mixing African drums and hand percussion with guitar, vocal and flute. Features rare photos from the '60s and '70s with sleeve notes by South Africa's finest author on music and culture, GWEN ANSELL.
