  • Abdullah Ibrahim & Johnny Dyani : Namhanje

    17:02

    Recorded in 1979, 'Namhanje' (Today) is a duet featuring Abdullah Ibrahim (piano, voice) and Johnny Dyani (bass, voice). The piece was released as part of an Enja recording title 'Echoes From Africa'.

    Pianist-composer-bandleader Abdullah Ibrahim, formerly known as Dollar Brand, was born in 1934 in Cape Town, South Africa. His music reflects many of the musical influences of his childhood in the multicultural port areas of Cape Town, ranging from traditional African songs to the gospel of the AME Church and ragas, to more modern jazz and other Western styles. Ibrahim is considered the leading figure in the sub-genre, Cape Jazz.

    Johnny Mbizo Dyani (bassist and vocalist) was born in 1945 in Duncan Village, a township of the South African city of East London. In the early 1960s, Dyanni was a member of South Africa's first integrated jazz band, The Blue Notes. In 1964, the band fled South Africa to seek musical and political freedom. Drummer Louis Moholo explained, We were rebels and we were trying to run away from this apartheid thing. We rebelled against the apartheid regime that whites and blacks couldn't play together. We stood up. Johnny Dyani died in 1986 at the age of forty. After his death, the remaining members of The Blue Notes reunited to record a moving tribute album, entitled 'Blue Notes For Johnny'.

    The photographs are from many places in Africa including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mali, Kenya, among others. My appreciation to all the photographers. This video is for educational purposes and to honor the work of the artists.

  • Johnny Dyani : Ntyilo Ntyilo

    5:22

    This beautiful song, Ntyilo Ntyilo (Xhosa: Little Bird) is from the 1978 album 'Witchdoctor's Son, bassist-vocalist Johnny Dyani in duet with guitarist Alfredo Nascimento. It is a true South African classic, one a small group of 'evergreens' that any local artist with jazz pretensions must include in their repertoire. It was written by Alan Silinga expressly for Miriam Makeba who first recorded it with the Manhattan Brothers in 1954. Miriam's solo rendition on her first American album in 1960 put it on the world map and since that time many other versions have been cut by artists as diverse as Hugh Masekela and Pharoah Sanders. As for the song's meaning, composer Silinga can only say that it is about a bird singing sweetly and inviting the listener to that happier place called heaven.

    Johnny Mbizo Dyani (1945-1986), of South Africa, was from a musical family and began playing the piano and singing in a traditional choir at an early age. At 13, he switched to bass, but would use both voice and piano later on. Chris McGregor hired him for the Blue Notes after hearing him play with pianist Tete Mbambiza; the group left the country in 1964, playing first at the Antibes Jazz Festival, then in Zurich, London, and Copenhagen. In 1966, Dyani toured Argentina with Steve Lacy's quartet, recording The Forest and the Zoo (ESP). In 1970, he played in Don Cherry's trio with Okay Temiz, and sat in with McCoy Tyner in New York. He worked with Abdullah Ibrahim and Alan Shorter (Tes Esat, 1970), and formed his own Earthquake Power in 1971. The following year, Dyani co-founded Xaba with Mongezi Feza and Temiz. He became very active on the European scene, playing with Irene Schweizer, Han Bennink, and with visiting American free jazz musicians such as David Murray, Leo Smith, Joseph Jarman, and Don Moye. His Witchdoctor's Son band made records with Dudu Pukwana and John Tchicai for Steeplechase, and with Swedish and Brazilian musicians for Cadillac (Witchdoctor's Son Together, 1980). His quartet featured guests Don Cherry (Song for Biko, Steeplechase), Pukwana (Mbizo, Steeplechase 1981), and Butch Morris (Grandmother's Teaching, Jam). He recorded in duo with drummer Clifford Jarvis (African Bass, Red 1979), and his septet/octet recorded two albums with Charles Davis (Afrika and Born Under the Heat, both released in 1983). Detail was his '80s trio with John Stevens and saxophonist Frode Gjerstad, and Detail Plus featured Bobby Bradford on cornet. His 1985 album Angolian Cry (Steeplechase) was of a quartet with trumpeter Harry Beckett and Tchicai. A year later, Johnny Dyani died suddenly after a performance in Berlin, his loss mourned deeply by all who knew him.

  • ✅???? Abdullah Ibrahim & Johnny Dyani ➖ Saud ➖ 1979 Alternate Take ????✅

    5:35

    ❤ Abdullah Ibrahim & Johnny Dyani - Saud (Dedicated to McCoy Tyner) - 1979 'Alternate Take' ❤
    Saud 'Alternate Take' is a song of extraordinary beauty, able to lift into the sky a sort of intense quivering prayer, almost a hymn to the Lord, whatever it is the religion that each of us has in his heart.
    In its intensity tends towards the peaks touched by John Coltrane's 'A Love Supreme', whose size and height remain inaccessible, maybe forever and for everyone.
    Abdullah Ibrahim (piano) and Johnny Dyani (bass) performed this tune during the recording of the album 'Echoes from Africa' (Enja-1979).
    For the album was chosen a different version (slightly longer than that presented here); this became the 'original' version, but - in my opinion - does not possess the spirituality that I feel in 'Alternate Take' proposal, which was published only in 1993 on the CD '1972 to 1992 Enja Story: Twenty Years in Modern Jazz'.
    ???? ITA - Questo video è dedicato ai miei allievi del Master e-Governement e Management nella Pubblica Amministrazione 2012-2013 dell'Università di Bari, che il 26 febbraio 2013 hanno chiesto notizie su un brano (Saud del pianista jazz Abdullah Ibrahim, di cui io uso la parte iniziale come suoneria per i promemoria del mio cellulare) risuonato durante l'intervallo pomeridiano delle lezioni.
    Nella breve discussione che ne è seguita è emerso un interesse a poter ascoltare l'intero brano, la cui reperibilità è piuttosto difficile.
    Per questo motivo ho preparato il video, sperando che sia adeguato all'intensità della musica ed alla grandezza dei due artisti Abdullah Ibrahim (al piano) e Johnny Dyani (al basso), che eseguirono il brano in occasione della registrazione dell'album Echoes from Africa (Enja - 1979).
    Per il disco fu scelta una versione diversa (leggermente più lunga rispetto a quella qui presentata); tale esecuzione (più lunga) divenne la versione originale , ma - a mio avviso - non possiede la spiritualità che io sento nella Alternate Take qui proposta, che è stata pubblicata soltanto nel 1993 nel CD Enja Story 1972 to 1992: Twenty Years in Modern Jazz.

    Saud Alternate Take è un brano di straordinaria bellezza, in grado di sollevare verso il cielo una sorta di fremente preghiera, quasi un inno al Signore, qualunque sia la religione che ognuno di noi custodisce nel suo cuore.
    Nella sua intensità lo sento tendere verso i picchi toccati dal capolavoro di John Coltrane A Love Supreme, le cui dimensioni e la cui altezza rimangono comunque irraggiungibili, forse per sempre e per chiunque.

    Abdullah Ibrahim è un grande pianista e compositore jazz (in realtà suona anche il sassofono, i flauti e il violoncello). È nato Cape Town (Sudafrica) il 9 ottobre 1934 ed è forse la massima espressione jazzistica africana. Il suo vero nome è Adolph Johannes Brand, ma è stato conosciuto con lo pseudonimo di Dollar Brand sino al 1968, quando - convertitosi all'Islam - assume il nome di Abdullah Ibrahim.
    Il suono del suo piano risente dell'influenza di Thelonious Monk e di Duke Ellington. Ma oltre al jazz e ai suoni della tradizione africana, la musica di Abdullah Ibrahim risente della grande religiosità che ha sempre accompagnato la sua vita e del profondo legame con la cultura orientale, oggetto dei suoi studi giovanili. Oltre ad aver pubblicato - a partire dagli anni '60 - una grande quantità di lavori, ad aver scritto la colonna sonora del film Chocolat di Claire Denis, Abdullah Ibrahim ha suonato e collaborato con gli uomini che hanno scritto la storia del jazz nel mondo: Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Billy Strayhorn, Archie Sheep, Max Roach, Elvin Jones, Don Cherry, Dexter Gordon e Gato Barbieri.

    Johnny Mbizo Dyani è nato il 30 novembre 1945 in East London (Sudafrica) in una famiglia di musicisti ed ha cominciato a suonare come pianista ed a cantare in coro. A 13 anni ha iniziato a suonare il basso.
    Nel 1973 ha dato avvio ad una partnership con il pianista Abdullah Ibrahim, durata vari anni, durante i quali hanno registrato insieme alcuni album molto interessanti.
    Dopo una carriera ricca di successi, è morto improvvisamente nel 1986 dopo una esibizione in Berlino.

    Nel 1979 la collaborazione fra Abdullah Ibrahim e Johnny Dyani ha toccato il culmine con il capolavoro Echoes from Africa (Enja), che rappresenta una prestazione veramente straordinaria.
    In Saud (dedicated to McCoy Tyner) la dedica è doppia: il famoso pianista McCoy Tyner (pianista del celeberrimo quartetto di John Coltrane) ne è il destinatario, in quanto protagonista del mondo jazz, ma anche in quanto musulmano, come Abdullah Ibrahim.

  • Pierre Dorge & New Jungle Orch. feat. Johnny Dyani, John Tchicai, Marilyn Mazur, Harry Beckett a.o.

    9:24

    In the American music magazine Down Beat, journalist Bill Shoemaker wrote:

    The Danish guitarist creates an exotically hued, rhythmically vibrant music that is simultaneously sophisticated and accessible. Pierre Dørge´s NJO has been one of jazz´s most consistently engaging big bands of the last decade.

    In the book A night in Tunisia - Imaginings of Africa by Norman C. Weinstein,
    Pierre Dørge´s New Jungle Orchestra is the only Europeans portrayed side by side with American top-jazzmen like John Coltrane, Archie Shepp, Yusef Lateef and Duke Ellington. A few excerpts from the book:

    It is unabashedly one of Europes most sophisticated jazz bands

    Dørge and band don't simply reverently imitate the Ellington jungle-sound,
    but ironically and humorously carry that sound to its logical musical conclusion.

    His (Dørge´s) imaginative play with African styles and instrumentation,
    is unparalleled by any other musicians not of African descent
