OZIAS NTSELE - Uthando (1985)

Vulindlela/Jumbo, VUL6003
Producers: Greg Cutler & Sipho Gumede
Engineers: Greg Cutler & David Segal
Recorded at: RPM Studios

Produced by the late great Sipho Gumede (Sakhile, The Boogie Man), Ozias Ntsele's Uthando (love) serves up traditional Zulu grooves, at times venturing into jazzier territory, with some smooth organ melodies that would have appealed to slightly more conservative tastes.
