“Tetemuka Jive” by Various Artists - album review

features in: (B-list) Album Chart of 1969(B-list) Album Chart of the 1960s

TJR says

Cool compile, rounding up 12 sax Jive instrumentals released as 45s in the preceding 12 months. It's the legendary rhythm guitarist Marks Mankwane who steals my utmost affection in the set, accompanied by another legend of the genre, West Nkosi, on saxophone. See notes for the ever-fascinating background from historian Nick Lotay.
