Moholo-Moholo, Louis Quartet (Hawkins / Edwards / Yarde)
Released in: Great Britain
"Recorded live in studio following two ecstatically received concerts at Cafe Oto in London the legendary South African drummer Louis Moholo-Moholo demonstrates just why it is he's in the same class as Billy Higgins, Elvin Jones, Sunny Murray and Ed Blackwell in a generation of drummers who devised means of negotiating the new rhythmic freedoms of the 60s. This working quartet, featuring three of London's finest musicians, could well prove to be Louis' best band in a long career. As journalist Richard Williams says "...the listener is overwhelmed by the feeling that there might be no end to the beauty conjured by this extraordinary combination of musicians." Say no more. The album also marks the 40th anniversary of Ogun Records, an independent beacon to new music through dark times."-Ogun Records
