1977 by female singer/composer Anna Nkosi, who is rumored to be a relative of West Nkosi, a producer / saxophonist who was an original member of the Makgona Tsohle Band and continued to support the South African scene with many works. The release is on JAS Pride, a sub-label of Gallo, a major label in South Africa, known for its many rare releases and It is said that other talented musicians are participating, including the credited Raymond Nkwe. The songwriting is beautiful, with a rebellious and powerful jazz spirit and a sense of spirituality, while also showing a pastoral atmosphere. The title track "Varitone Jump" with its tight rhythms, guitars, saxophone is a hot. Amazing condition.

Makgona Tsohle Bandのオリジナルメンバーにして、多くの作品にも関わり南アフリカのシーンを支え続けたプロデューサー/サックス奏者West Nkosiの親戚とも噂される女性シンガー/コンポーザーAnna Nkosiによる77年作。リリースは南アフリカの大レーベルGalloのサブレーベルにて稀少盤揃いのJAS Prideより、クレジットされているRaymond Nkweはじめ、他にも実力派ミュージシャンが参加していると思われます。牧歌的な雰囲気も覗かせながら反骨的な力強いジャズスピリットやスピリチュアル感覚を感じるソングライティングが一体となった作品、中でもタイトなリズムにギター、サックスが絡み迫力を増していくタイトル曲”Varitone Jump”は感動もの。コンディションも良好の稀少盤です。
