Afro Modern Dreams 1974-1977

Opening in 1973, tucked into a tangle of railway parts scattered across
an industrial park at the western edge of Orlando East, Club Pelican was Soweto’s first night-club,
and its premier live music venue throughout the seventies.
Pretty much everyone on the scene passed through its doors
— to sing, or perform in the house band, or hang out.
Schooled in standards, and fluent in the local musical vernacular,
the music would take off in different directions at a moment’s notice — SA twists on jazz, funk, fusion, disco
— spurred by the sounds coming in from Philadelphia, Detroit and New York City.
One Night In Pelican encapsulates these halcyon times,
with a musical roll call of all the key groups and players,
besides evocative, previously-unseen photographs, cover artwork by Zulu ‘Batsumi’ Bidi,
and notes by Kwanele Sosibo,
lit up by a gallery of first-person testimony.


Der 1973 eröffnete Club Pelican war der erste Nachtclub in Soweto, versteckt in einem Gewirr von
einem Industriegebiet am westlichen Rand von Orlando East, war der Club Pelican der erste Nachtclub in Soweto,
und in den siebziger Jahren die erste Adresse für Live-Musik.
So ziemlich jeder, der in der Szene Rang und Namen hatte, ging durch seine Türen
- um zu singen, in der Hausband aufzutreten oder einfach nur abzuhängen.
Geschult in Standards und fließend in der lokalen Musiksprache,
Die Musik ging von einem Moment auf den anderen in verschiedene Richtungen - SA-Veränderungen von Jazz, Funk, Fusion, Disco
- beflügelt von den Klängen, die aus Philadelphia, Detroit und New York City kamen.
One Night In Pelican fasst diese glorreichen Zeiten zusammen,
mit einem musikalischen Appell an alle wichtigen Gruppen und Akteure,
neben stimmungsvollen, noch nie gezeigten Fotos, einem Cover-Artwork von Zulu 'Batsumi' Bidi,
und Notizen von Kwanele Sosibo,
erhellt durch eine Galerie von Selbstzeugnissen.

EN: Honest Jon's is an independent record shop based on Portobello Road in Ladbroke Grove, London, operating since 1974. The shop is owned and run by Mark Ainley and Alan Scholefield, who took over from one of the original proprietors, "Honest" Jon Clare. Their record label of the same name is run in conjunction with Damon Albarn, who has been quoted as saying: "I don't really like the term world music. Wherever it comes from, it's all just music, isn't it? Hopefully that's what Honest Jon's is about - to open a few minds to what's out there."[1] The shop sells a multitude of genres of music on vinyl and CD, specializing in jazz, blues, reggae, dance, soul, folk and outernational. It runs a mail-order business from Formed in 2002, the label has released compilation albums such as its London Is The Place For Me series, excavating the music of young Black London, in the years after World War II ("a fascinating archive of material from the 1950s and 60s, chronicling a time when diasporic rhythms were more or less the sole preserve of the small communities responsible for bringing them to these shores");[2] also collections of British folk, Port-of-Spain soca, Afro-Cuban jazz from the Bronx, Jamaican dancehall; and retrospectives of artists including Moondog, Maki Asakawa, Bettye Swann and Cedric "Im" Brooks & The Light of Saba. It has released original music by Candi Staton, Actress, T++, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Mark Ernestus, Trembling Bells, The Good, The Bad & The Queen, Simone White, Shackleton, Michael Hurley, Terry Hall, and the Moritz Von Oswald Trio. It recorded the chaabi orchestra of Abdel Hadi Halo on location in Algiers; Lobi Traore and Kokanko Sata Doumbia in Bamako; and Tony Allen in Lagos. In 2008, Honest Jon's began a run of compilations of early recordings — mostly drawn from the EMI Archive in Hayes, Hillingdon — stretching back to the start of the twentieth century, covering all corners of the world: from the break-up of the Ottoman Empire more than a hundred years ago, to 1950s Beirut, to late-1920s Baghdad, to 1930s East Africa. wikipedia
