As requested: Peacemaker – this is Mike Makhalemele’s first solo album which was recorded in the early 70s while he was also playing in “The Drive” with Duke Makassi and Khaya Mahlangu . Another of South Africa’s crop of exceptional saxophonists, Makhalamele’s work may yet receive the posthumous recognition it deserves – should Gallo and As-Shams (Sun) be able to conclude their talks about re-issuing the As-Shams catalogue in South Africa. We wait in hope!!
Always a step ahead, Matt over at Matsuli has licensed the first of hopefully many of the As-Shams titles for European release starting with the legendary Dick Khoza Chapita recording. We look forward.
