Vinyl LP pressing. With a unique sound founded on a persuasive mix of American and African jazz, Armitage Road, originally released in 1970, was the only studio recording released by South Africa's Heshoo Beshoo Group. As a highly prized collector's item, a re-issue and re-appraisal of this lost gem from the apartheid era has been long overdue. Heshoo Beshoo loosely translates from the inter-tribal lingo of the townships as either 'going by force', or 'moving with force'. That is certainly the case here. With it's undeniably funky element Armitage Road combines graceful and moving playing with invention and passion, and it does not disappoint from start to finish.
