info 

This release is the 4th in a series of Mountain Records albums under the Cape Jazz banner. This time, unlike the previous records which featured numerous groups, this album is basically the work of one band, called The Cape Jazz Band (CJB). The CJB is a loose collection of top Cape Town based musicians under the leadership of veteran drummer Jack Momple, who come together to perform some of the better known works in the genre. The compositions of Basil Coetzee, Abdullah Ibrahim (Dollar Brand), Robbie Jansen, Tony Schilder, Jonathan Butler and others, are in their program. This album is a collection of works written by the band members and now gives them some “original” works to add to the set.
