Only one official record exists by this great duo :

Thanks a lot for this concert. I'm a great fan. It's indeed a great addition to the duo outings. Something rare as you say.

I'm still amazed that a Waldron/Dyani concert like this one can (re)surface like that today. It's surprising. It's very good... but I'm surprised.

Cheers to all. Keep up the good work.

It's so wonderful to see these Johnny Dyani records surfacing. Grandmother's Teaching was wonderful as well.

I would never have known of Mr Dyani if it wasn't for your wonderful site. I'm enjoying the experience and education of listening to many people who would otherwise most certainly have passed me by. Many thanks for this and for all the other posts that I've downloaded without any acknowledgement. I'm trying to remember my manners in recent days, but I owe many thanks for many fantastic downloads. So ...
thank you, again.

Thanks for this gem. Those interested in more Dyani, search for his work with Pierre Dørge and the New Jungle Orchestra on four SteepleChase sessions: New Jungle Orchestra, Brikama, Even The Moon Is Dancing and Johnny Lives. First rate stuff.

Just great music from these two giants. Thank you very much.

Many thanks riccardo. We all owe a massive debt to Italy and to Black Saint/Soul Note for their efforts in keeping jazz alive during a slack period.

Thanks for posting this. I knew Johnny Dyani mainly from his collaboration with another great pianist - Abdullah Ibrahim. Now I'm curious to find out what he and Mal Waldron sound like together.

Thanks so much. It is actually, to my mind, better than "Boer", though that is a fine-cutting distinction!

This is one of the posts that really makes this wonderful site as great as it is.

Like the rest of you, I'm mourning the brevity of Dyani's life (not to mention the passing of Waldron), but am so grateful that his/their music is being passed on for posterity.
