Mind melting and contemplative spiritual jazz from South African born NDIKHO XABA. The sole release using this moniker, 1971's NDIKHO XABA AND THE NATIVES is a journey in the truest sense, bridging sonic exploration with political and social consciousness. I heard these recordings years ago - well before I had the ears to appreciate, but re-discovered recently via the folks at Loathed Sound. There was a proper re-issue a few years ago....as there should have been. 

Xaba passed away last month at age 85. As eulogies go, this one does the job with grace.
