South African bass player Johnny Dyani sadly didn’t live long enough to see the apartheid he hated overthrown, but he did leave us some wonderful, classic music. SteepleChase here reissue his 1984 album Afrika, in which he plays bass and piano at the head of a powerful group that features the notable addition of Rudy Smith’s steel drums. Perhaps Dyani’s finest work.
