Mankunku Quartet ‎– Yakhal' Inkomo. Label: World Record Co. ‎– ORL 6022. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album. Country: South Africa. On the first side of this LP is "Yakhal Inkomo" (one of his original works), literally translated "Bellowing Bull. The sound of a bull bellowing mournfully at the loss of one of his kind, is one from deep down in the heart. It is with this sound captured musically, that Mankunku expresses his deep grief at the loss of one of the greatest tenor players in the world, Daddy Trane, as he calls the late John Coltrane.

Saxophonist Winston 'Mankunku' Ngozi's 1968 masterpiece Yakhal'inkomo stands in the front rank of global jazz recordings. A certified jazz classic in South Africa, it has sold hundreds of thousands of copies and has never been out of print. But like so many other crucial South African jazz LPs, it was never released outside the country, and went unheard at the time by the wider world.

Mankunku: Yakhal'Inkomo by AAJ Staff, published on May 8, 2002. Yakhal'Inkomo is a cry of joy wrapped in a package of protest. Tenor saxophonist Winston "Mankunku" Ngozi did not choose the title by accident: it refers to the bellow of the bull as it is taken to slaughter. Did the censors in Pretoria grasp the title's meaning? Doubtful. In 1968, life as a creative African musician in South Africa was a serious challenge, to put it mildly. But Mankunku manages to convey such an urgently joyful and revelatory sound that he transforms the message of this record to one of yearning and freedom.

In my humble opinion, this album is like the south African version of Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue. Not only musically, but it is a highly monumental success for African jazz, which is fitting for an obscure artist like Mankunku who is still obscure in our country, almost 5 years after his passing. It is a little sad that even the pianist, Lionel Pillay, also died in obscurity, and there is very little written information about these artists. And it seems as though the LP itself is incredibly rare and almost impossible to find anywhere. The cover done for 'Doodlin', composed by Horace silver is really a work of genius!!!
So true brother. This album, to me is the finest piece of SA jazz out there, with due consideration given to masekela, puckwana, gideon, dollar brand.and host of other fine SA musicians. What sets the album apart is the composition of the songs and the interplay between musicians
