Rejoice and Together

Johnny Mbizo Dyani – Rejoice & Together

The life of Johnny “Mbizo” Dyani (1945-1986), bassist with the legendary South African jazz troupe the Blue Notes, is celebrated by the reissue of two recordings dating from his period living in Sweden. “Rejoice”, culled from a live concert with trumpeter Mongezi Feza and drummer Okay Temiz, and the studio recording “Together” featuring Dyani’s group Witchdoctor’s Son, were issued posthumously, the latter in 1987, “Rejoice”a year later; both are treasured collectors’ pieces in their original vinyl formats.
