Township Comets

The Township 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, and the group features vocalist Pinise Saul, star of classic Zila records ‘Life In Bracknell and Willisau’ and ‘Zila 86’. Doubtless the roof will raise and the room will sway with the power and seduction of their sound. "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.
