From the publisher:
“Keeping Time: 1964-1974 the Photographs and Cape Town Jazz Recordings of Ian Bruce Huntley, published in 2013 by Chris Albertyn and Associates CC in partnership with Electric Jive, presents the reconstruction of a private collection of recordings into a public record, created in view of enriching and reimagining the archive of South African jazz culture. In tandem, this book and the website make available a selection of access copies of photographs and sound recordings of many now deceased South African jazz leaders, produced by the jazz enthusiast and amateur documentarian Ian Bruce Huntley between 1964 and 1974.”
Jazz performers documented by Huntley include Barney Rachabane, Dennis Mpale, Ernest Mothle and Roy Petersen.
