Township Comets

Following last year's triumphant gig, popular demand sees the welcome return of the Township Comets. Doubtless the roof will raise and the room will sway with the power and seduction of their sound. The Comets play the searing, joyous music of South African saxophonist Dudu Pukwana, a towering figure in township jazz and the European free scene. Chris Batchelor and Adam Glasser played with Pukwana in the ‘80’s. “I heard the Township Comets playing Dudu Pukwana's music, and Chris McGregor's legacy, and that was fantastic too. It was really like hearing those wonderful bands with Dudu in all over again.” John Fordham - BBC Jazz on 3 review of London Jazz Festival.
Simply unmissable.
