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
