Nomvula’s Dance, herewith another offering from the Jazz Ministers.
This recording is a great example of how a cluster of good musicians continued to excel after the death of their leading light. Jazz Ministers founder Victor Ndlazilwana died in 1978. Trumpeter, and tireless teacher of jazz, Johnny Mekoa took over leadership of the Jazz Ministers and produced this gem.
The Jazz Ministers were the first African jazz band to perform at the Newport Jazz Festival in New York.
