Joe Harriott & Amancio D'Silva Quartet Hum Dono

14th July 2023

Format Info

Black Vinyl LP
* Full colour repro of original sleeve with flip-back detailing on reverse * Limited edition black vinyl

Released in 1969, this is probably the best modern British jazz LP of all time. A beguiling mix of East meets West rhythms, ideas and joy, repressed with an authentic flip back sleeve. 

An original of this will cost you about £2000. Because it’s rare but mainly because it’s absolutely amazing. A sax player hailing from the Jamaican Alpha School. A sublime guitarist from Mumbai, an tight quintet with special guests that include Norma Winstone on improvised wordless vocals. One session, 1969, at the very peak of British jazz invention and sound. I could go on and on about this but no one will actually read it. This album is brilliant and addictive in so many ways. It really does not get batter. Miss this at your peril. 


” Steeped in mythical status due to the limited run of the original vinyl pressing, and the high esteem in which it is held by any musicians and listeners lucky enough to have heard it, Hum Dono does not disappoint, and is unquestionably one of the greatest of British jazz albums.”
