Next Stop, Soweto... jazz

DOWNLOAD Dennis Mpale- "Orlando" (mediafire) (soundcloud)
From: Next Stop ... Soweto Vol. 3 (August 3rd, Strut)
Giants, Ministers and Makers: Jazz In South Africa 1963 - 1984  

The first two installments of this series have featured some incredible music... looking forward to hearing more...
One of the regular players on the South African jazz scene splitting time between Cape Town and Johannesburg, Dennis Mpale plays trumpet in several of the outfits featured on Next Stop... Soweto Vol. 3. "Orlando" comes from an album under his own name, and is a tribute to his township. Documenting the vibrant South African jazz scene of the 50s, 60, & 70s, the final volume of the Next Stop... Soweto series comes out August 3rd on Strut.
