Bassist Harry Miller was one of the South African exiles whose exuberant musicianship and township inflections invigorated British jazz in the late 1960s.

This live album, getting its first release 30 years after Miller’s death, is taken from two mid-70s performances by his sextet Isipingo.

The powerful and firm-fingered Miller developed a telepathic relationship with drummer and fellow exile Louis Moholo Moholo, and they switch mood in the blink of an eye.

Pulsating riffs, moments of calm, and three horns playing with passion and technical flair.
