“Butterfly” by Bra Sello - album review

TJR says

Recorded at the Satbel Recording Studios in Johannesburg, engineered by Paul Dobbe and produced by Cambridge Matiwane. The band find their groove almost right away and don't let go for the half-hour session which is split into two sides; you had better enjoy a funky trance out if you're going to deal with this one. Bra Sello – real name Selby Mmutung – leads with his saxophone as always, and he's accompanied by guitars, keyboards, flutes, handclapping and non-intrusive backing vocalists who're content to remain wordless with lots of bar-bar-up-ups, bop-bor-or-bops and ho-ho-hos. Nothing earth shattering, but a nice mellow vibe that could just as easily lend itself to a sunny day barbecue as a night-time shebeen.
