  • Hugh Masekela & Larry Willis Abangoma | Live Studio Sessions

    6:08

    Hugh Masekela is a man of many facets. He’s one of the world’s most famous jazz trumpet/flugelhorn players. He’s also a singer, composer, political activist and (probably most germane to what you’re about to hear) a wonderful, witty and wise story-teller.

    On his latest tour with his old friend and jazz pianist, Larry Willis, the two of them honored us with one of the most delightful studio sessions we can remember. They were in town to perform selections from their boxed set of duo recordings called Friends. After opening the show with a traditional African song called Abangoma, Mr. Masekela began to spin a web of stories, spurred on by interviewer and jazz host, Abe Beeson. Among many other things, Masekela talks about his musical coming-of-age in South Africa, his further coming-of-age in the New York jazz scene of the 1960s, his accidental hit record, Grazing In The Grass, the incalculable importance of Louis Armstrong and, in general, a rich life which he continues to live to the fullest. There is a great joy here. Partake of it.

    Hugh Ramopolo Masekela born 4 April 1939 died 23 January 2018 was a South African trumpeter, flugelhornist, cornetist, composer and singer. He is considered the father of South African jazz. Masekela was known for his jazz compositions and for writing well-known anti-apartheid songs such as Soweto Blues and Bring Him Back Home.

    Time is a 2002 studio album by the late South African jazz trumpeter Hugh Masekela. The album was recorded in Johannesburg, South Africa and won Masekela the South African Music Award (SAMA) for Best Producer.

    From South African gospel to the slightly rougher feel of mbaqanga, and even the more contemporary kwaito (South Africa's disco-fied version of hip-hop) on Old People, Young Folks, this album keeps its feet on the ground at home. About the only thing missing is that Masekela focuses more on his gritty, warm vocals, rather than his excellent trumpet playing. But he seems happy enough with that, and the sense of jubilation surrounding the disc glows peacefully... - Chris Nickson / AllMusic

    Hugh Masekela was a world-renowned flugelhornist, trumpeter, bandleader, composer, singer and defiant political voice who remained deeply connected at home, while his international career sparkled. Continuing a busy international tour schedule, Hugh used his global reach to spread the word about heritage restoration in Africa – a topic that remained very close to his heart. He founded the Hugh Masekela Heritage Foundation in 2015 to continue this work for generations to come. “My biggest obsession is to show Africans and the world who the people of Africa really are,” Masekela confided.

    Lyrics: What is Wrong With Groovin'?
    written and sung by Hugh Masekela

    What is wrong with groovin'?
    Can't a fellow have a little happy without any hide-n-seek?
    What is it they're asking for?
    Can't they let me be just what I wanna?
    They don't have to put me down.
    Why do they follow me around just like their name was 0-0-7?
    Oh what are they peepin'?
    Are they foolin'?
    Where are they at?
    What is wrong with groovin'?
    What is wrong with wailin'?
    Oh what is wrong with livin'?
    What is wrong with livin'?
    What is all this talk about my groovin'?
    They don't have to put me down.
    Why do they follow me around just like their name was 0-0-7?
    What are they peepin'?
    Are they foolin'?
    Where are they at?
    What is wrong with groovin'?
    What is it they're asking for?
    What is wrong with wailin'?
    What is it they're asking for?
    What is wrong with groovin'?
    What is it they're asking for?
    Scat singing....

    The Hugh Masekela story is a long and exciting one: the two times Grammy awarded artist is Africa´s most important jazz and world musician. He has covered the globe and played with just about every top star you can think of. Hugh Masekela wrote a number of international hits and sold several million CDs. He even topped Jumping Jack Flash by the Rolling Stones with Grazing in the Grass in the US charts. Another very popular song of Hugh Masekela called Bring Him Back Home became the anthem for Nelson Mandala's world tour following his release from prison. Some of Hugh Masekela´s activities are a while ago ... but he is still making history:

    In 2010 he opened both - the Kick off Concert and the opening ceremony of the World Cup in South Africa - a worldwide TV event. His touring schedule was massive and included major festivals and venues like the Carnegie Hall, NY and the Royal Festival Hall in London or the Mela Festival in Oslo, where he performed in front of 80 000 people.
    In 2011 Hugh Masekela caused maximum surprise when he joined U2 on stage in one of the biggest concerts U2 ever played. More than 98 000 people celebrated Hugh Masekela in Johannesburg when Bono called him to join them on their hit I Still haven´t Found What I´m Looking For. Hugh Masekela highlighted another series of festivals all over the world and played the Hollywood Bowl together with Wynton Marsalis. He was awarded by the Etnosur Festival in Spain and received the WOMEX 11 Award for Artists on 30 October in Copenhagen.

    8:40

    Performance - 8 July 2012
    Hugh Masekela has an extensive jazz background and credentials, but has enjoyed major success as one of the earliest leaders in the world fusion mode. Masekela's vibrant trumpet and flügelhorn solos have been featured in pop, R&B, disco, Afro-pop, and jazz contexts. He's had American and international hits, worked with bands around the world, and played with African, African-American, European, and various American musicians during a stellar career. His style, especially on flügelhorn, is a charismatic blend of striking upper-register lines, half-valve effects, and repetitive figures and phrases, with some note bending, slurs, and tonal colors. Though he's often simplified his playing to fit into restrictive pop formulas, Masekela is capable of outstanding ballad and bebop work.

    He began singing and playing piano as a child, influenced by seeing the film Young Man with a Horn at 13. Masekela started playing trumpet at 14. He played in the Huddleston Jazz Band, which was led by anti-apartheid crusader and group head Trevor Huddleston. Huddleston was eventually deported, and Masekela co-founded the Merry Makers of Springs along with Jonas Gwangwa. He later joined Alfred Herbert's Jazz Revue, and played in studio bands backing popular singers. Masekela was in the orchestra for the musical King Kong, whose cast included Miriam Makeba. He was also in the Jazz Epistles with Abdullah Ibrahim, Makaya Ntshoko, Gwanga, and Kippie Moeketsi. Masekela and Makeba, his wife at that time, left South Africa one year before Ibrahim and Sathima Bea Benjamin in 1961. Such musicians as Dizzy Gillespie, John Dankworth, and Harry Belafonte assisted him. Masekela studied at the Royal Academy of Music, then the Manhattan School of Music. During the early '60s, his career began to explode. He recorded for MGM, Mercury, and Verve, developing his hybrid African/pop/jazz style. Masekela moved to California and started his own record label, Chisa. He cut several albums expanding this formula and began to score pop success. The song Grazing in the Grass topped the charts in 1968 and eventually sold four million copies worldwide. That year Masekela sold out arenas nationwide during his tour, among them Carnegie Hall. He recorded in the early '70s with Monk Montgomery & the Crusaders.

    Home Is Where the Music IsMasekela moved in a more ethnic direction during the '70s. He traveled to London to play with Nigerian Afro-beat great Fela Kuti & Africa 70; then came a session with Dudu Pukwana, Eddie Gomez, and Ntshoko, among others, that resulted in his finest jazz/African album, Home Is Where The Music Is. Masekela toured Guinea with the Ghanian Afro-pop band Hedzoleh Soundz, then recorded a series of albums with them both in California and Africa with guest stints from the Crusaders, Patti Austin, and others. Masekela alternated between America and Africa, cutting a successful pop/dance album with Herb Alpert in the late '70s. During the '80s, Masekela returned to South Africa. He visited Zimbabwe and Botswana, and recorded two albums with the Kalahari Band that once more merged jazz-rock, funk, and pop. Masekela was part of Paul Simon's Graceland tour in the mid-'80s, while he continued recording and produced sessions by Makeba. Starting in the mid-'90s, Masekela began releasing a stream of albums and collections that showed his versatility and growth in South African jazz. He continued to be active into the first decade of the 21st century, issuing Live at the Market Theatre in 2007, Phola in 2009, and a pair of albums in 2012, Friends (with Larry Willis) and Jabulani, inspired by South African wedding traditions Masekela remembered from his childhood. Though the jazz content of his work has varied over the years, Hugh Masekela has far more material on the plus side than the negative.

    Grazing In The Grass - Hugh Masekela (1968 - 2018) The nicest cowbells ever!
    Album: The Promise of a Future
    Masekela was born in Kwa-Guqa Township, Witbank, South Africa. Following the 21 March 1960 Sharpeville Massacre—where 69 peacefully protesting Africans were shot dead in Sharpeville, and the South African government banned gatherings of ten or more people—and the increased brutality of the Apartheid state, Masekela left the country. He was helped by international friends such as Yehudi Menuhin, who got him admitted into London's Guildhall School of Music. During that period, Masekela visited the United States, where he was befriended by Harry Belafonte. He attended Manhattan School of Music in New York, where he studied classical trumpet from '60 to '64. In 1964, Myriam Makeba and Masekela were married, divorcing two years later. He played at the Monterey Pop Festival in '67 and became friends with Harry Belafonte. In '68 he made this number-one monster hit (4 million copies). He also played on Paul Simon's album Graceland and did the Graceland-tour.
