Hedzoleh Soundz featuring Hugh Masekela
African classic and long out of print except for the track Languta that appeared on the recent Still Grazin greatest hits compilation. Uploaded by El Reza
David McDavitt at Afrofunkforum had this to say:
The 1973 album “Introducing Hedzoleh Soundz,” by Ghana’s Hedzoleh Soundz with South African trumpetist, Hugh Masekela is simply stunning- arguably the greatest African-Jazz fusion album of all time, and certainly Masekela’s most outstanding release. The musicianship & creativity on these precious cuts are matchless. All but 2 of 8 tunes are written by Hedzoleh (one is by Masekela in HS style, one is traditional)- and therein lies the album’s brilliance. So don’t be fooled by the title, this is Hedzoleh’s album with guest Masekela.
