FIRST OFFICIAL REISSUE. Originally released in 1968.
"Gideon Nxumalo's Gideon Plays might just be the most mythologised and sought-after LP in the whole South African canon. A sophisticated bop excursion with a distinctive African edge, it was only Nxumalo's second LP as leader, despite his crucial place in South African jazz history.
Pianist Nxumalo was a visionary jazz composer who had recorded regularly during the 1950s, and his 1962 Jazz Fantasia album was the first South African jazz recording to incorporate traditional African musical sources and instruments." (Matsuli Music)
