Vinyl LP pressing. One of the rarest and most sought after South African recordings of the early 1970s, available again for the first time since it's original South African release - the swinging township groove of The Jazz Clan's 1973 debut LP, Dedication Die-hard fans of South African jazz speak about The Jazz Clan in hushed tones. One of the dozens of South African groups who styled themselves as 'jazz dignitaries' - like the Jazz Giants, the Jazz Ambassadors, or the Jazz Ministers, for instance - their two widely separated studio albums for Gallo (Dedications and Makwenkwe, released in 1973 and 1976 respectively) are extremely hard to find, and were never repressed after their initial runs. Until now their work has graced neither re-release nor compilation. But they were no also-rans. They may have left a small recorded footprint, but it was an impressive one, epitomised by their hard-swinging 1973 debut, Dedication - a tough, swinging soul-jazz set with distinct African touches which is counted by those in the know as among the best South African jazz recordings of the era.
