The Echoes of Sophiatown tribute album is now available for sale in the Cape Town Swing online shop! Featuring 12 finger-snapping tunes from our transcription project performed by Cape Town’s favorite swing band, the Pebble Shakers, the album is available on CD and vinyl.

The selection of songs featured on the album represent the breadth of artists and jazz legends who defined the genre starting in the 1930s. The album liner notes give you a glimpse of who they were, where they were from, and what their songs were about.

Narrowing the list of 37 songs we transcribed for the project to just 12 for the album was no easy task – there are so many more beautiful songs that the Pebble Shakers take to new heights

All album sales support the Echoes project goals of promoting South African swing music: the album production costs, supporting local musicians, and (hopefully!) transcribing more songs!

We accept EFT, PayPal or PayFast for online orders. For locals, we can organize to get the CD to you in person. Shipping is, of course, available for our more remote fans.

To hear the rest of the songs transcribed for this project, catch the Pebble Shakers live! Their next big gig will be celebrating World Lindy Hop Day with Cape Town Swing at Cafe Roux on 25 May.
