Thandi Ntuli and Siyabonga Mthembu star on the cover of the latest Wire, which takes a look at the booming South African jazz scene. There's a Wire Primer on pianist, composer and collaborator Carla Bley, an invisible jukebox with electronic father & son duo Mark Fell and Rian Treanor and a meet up with Chinese multi-instrumentalist Mamer.
Wire has brought us monthly adventures in sound and music since 1982. Erudite, thoughtful and always playing in the margins.
Enjoying the citrus colourway guys, especially in rainy old Leeds!
