East London’s Stirling Big Band – conducted by Alan Webster, with the help of Sakhile Simani, Kyle du Preez and Neteske Horton – plays interesting arrangements of classic charts in a standard big band format. The band was formed 30 years ago and is proud of the number of past members still active in South African jazz. This recording was made under the strains of pandemic social distancing but still captures the energy and enthusiasm of young people loving making music together. Most poignant is their version of ‘One for Khoza’, composed by guitarist Lulama Gawulana, who sadly passed away four days after this recording.
