Chris McGregor’s Brotherhood of Breath :: Eclipse At Dawn

"Most of the guys in the band come from England and the rest of them come from South Africa - which is a wonderful place to come from..." Ronnie Scott chortles as way of introduction for Chris McGregor's Brotherhood of Breath. The crowd knowingly laughs along while Scott enthusiastically introduces the band - a who's who of South African and English jazz. The joy and excitement nearly eclipses the truly unfunny nature of the joke. 1971 was a very bad time to be in South Africa . . .
