BBC Radio 3 Freeness: South African Soul Music

Catchy hooks and chaotic group interplay captured live from Louis Moholo-Moholo’s Unit. As the last surviving member of the beloved South African group the Blue Notes, drummer Moholo-Moholo leads an all-star octet in celebrating the bands lasting influence in a rousing concert recorded in Milan, Italy, in 2012.

Plus, there’s music that reflects on lost connections by piecing together two isolated performances from violinist Florence Rutherfoord-Jones and drummer Jonathan Lodder. Neither heard what the other had played until the tracks were mixed, months later. The end result is a cohesive piece that captures the energy of two collaborating musicians.
