    For the first time ever, Abdullah Ibrahim, formally known as Dollar Brand, went to Robin Island, where Mandela was imprisoned. All forms of music were banned. A lawyer smuggled one of Abdullah's songs into the control room, blocked the doors and played it over the loud speakers. Mandela's first sound of music in decades.

  • Abdullah Ibrahim - Cape Town Flower

    Starts with another track but leads into this masterwork. I think this was the Lugano Jazz Festival in 1999.

    I guess there is no other known earlier TV-clip from Abdullah Ibrahim than this 1968 clip and wonder why it isn´t already uploaded. Same to be said about the following clips of general interest from Michael Naura´s German Jazz-TV series in the early 1980s.

  • Abdullah Ibrahim - The Balance

    Personnel

    Abdullah Ibrahim: piano

    Featuring Ekaya:

    Adam Glasser: harmonica
    Noah Jackson: cello
    Alec Dankworth : double bass
    Will Terrill: drums
    Cleave Guyton Jr.: flute
    Lance Bryant: tenor saxophone
    Andrae Murchison: trombone
    Marshall McDonald: baritone saxophone

    The Balance combines full-band performances with improvised solo piano pieces. The title, Ibrahim notes, stems from the balance that's part of those different pieces, what he calls a balance of different narratives. For me it's always the idea of telling a story and not just playing notes. There's a variety of songs and each one has a different aspect and different narrative and different pastel colors. We reached that balance within ourselves. He adds that the gentle, atmospheric title track was something I wrote many years ago. We played it in many different formats, but the recording that day in London was what felt like the best way to do it.
