When TMT 7-3 appeared on the Discogs website in summer 2015, it unlocked a selection of other discs on the label that feature on AIT’s master list of recordings. Of the two Luo benga bands on the label, DO Misiani’s DO7 Shirati Jazz are one of the most prolific outfits in Kenyan music history – see the Bands Index for an up-to-date list of the labels that issued records by them.

The relationship between these two bands, however, is unclear. Elsewhere, Misiani is occasionally credited as writer or co-writer of some Central K Jazz songs, so it may be that he acted as their mentor or even tat the band was a version of Shirati Jazz operating under a different name.
