The Huntley Archive-Photographs and Cape Town Jazz Recordings – 1964 – 1974

Ian Bruce Huntley captured more than 1500 South African jazz-related images and recorded and preserved in excess of 56 hours of reel-to-reel audio of jazz performed in Cape Town over the period 1964-1974. This site aims to make Ian’s jazz archive accessible, opening a window on a little-known era,  an ‘underground’ scene that persisted in creative defiance of all that grand apartheid threw at it.
