Ogun Records pubblica un album in memoria del compianto bassista Harry Miller, scomparso esattamente trent'anni fa, contenente registrazioni inedite di metà anni settanta del suo gruppo Isipingo: Different Times, Different Places, con la partecipazione di Chris McGregor, Keith Tippett, Mike Osborne, Mark Charig, Nick Evans, Malcolm Griffiths e Louis Moholo. Informazioni: ogunrecords@googlemail.com.

Virtuoso South African bassist Harry Miller forged his reputation on the British jazz scene working alongside Mike Westbrook, Bob Downes, John Stevens and fellow exiled South Africans Chris McGregor, Dudu Pukwana and Louis Moholo-Moholo. As his reputation spread, Miller worked increasingly on mainland Europe with the likes of Peter Brötzmann, Misha Mengelberg and Willem Breuker. Different Times, Different Places, which follows up on the 1999 Ogun release Harry Miller-The Collection (now a prized collectors item) celebrates Miller's work as leader of the band Isipingo and features previously unreleased sessions from 1973 and 1976.
