  • 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.
