    Reissue of 'Spring', the classic 1968 debut album by pianist Ibrahim Khalil Shihab!

    This edition of Shihab’s stunning debut is the first time it has been properly available in over forty years, and the first time it has ever been available outside South Africa. Restored and presented with new liner notes by Valmont Layne, Spring can now be seen for what it is: a peerless masterwork of Cape Jazz, blessed by the presence of the great Mankunku, but truly animated by the subtle vision and original musical spirit of its creator, Ibrahim Khalil Shihab.
