SOUTH AFRICAN FREE JAZZ CAPE TOWN 1964-1967

Recordings made by Ian Bruce Huntley: Between 1965 - 1967 live recording sessions were made by map maker Ian Huntley. The recordings are rough, yet the music mirrors life. The music Barney recorded with the Jazz Disciples was excellent but the expression fundamental came from The all star Cape jazz quartet that featured Winston Mankunku Ngozi on saxophone, Chris Schilder (later to become Ebrahim Khalil Shihab) on piano, Midge Pike on bass and Selwyn Lissack on drums. The music was prolific, free and profound. Merton Barrow was also a regular visitor to this quartet either standing in on piano or playing on the vibes to make a quintet, as Morris Goldberg and Cups n Saucers Nkanuka and many others did.
