  • The Blue Notes Tribute Orkestra

    PLS NOTE - for enquiries pls email africaninspace@gmail.com !! The Blue Note Tribute Orkestra
    Andile Yenana - piano
    Marcus Wyatt -- trumpet
    Siya Makuzeni -- voice/trombone
    Mthunzi Mvubu -- alto saxophone
    Janus van der Merwe -- tenor saxophone
    Thembinkosi Mavimbela -- upright bass
    Ayanda Sikade - drums

    The Blue Notes tribute Orkestra was initially put together for an event commissioned by the Chimurenga Magazine in Cape Town , but once the musicians came together to rehearse they soon realized the importance of keeping this project alive . It has been a journey of discovery for all the musicians involved -- exploring the incredible recordings and compostions of the legendary South African jazz group of the 60's , The Blue Notes . This was one of the most important groups to ever come out of this country , and they truly put South African Jazz onto the global stage .

    The Blue Notes were a South African jazz sextet, whose definitive line up featured Chris McGregor on piano, Mongezi Feza on trumpet, Dudu Pukwana on alto saxophone, Nikele Moyake on tenor saxophone, Johnny Dyani on bass, and Louis Moholo on drums. After moving away from their home country in 1964, they established themselves on the European jazz circuit, where they continued to play and record through the 1970s. They are now considered one of the great free jazz bands of their era, whose music was given a unique flavour by their integration of African styles such as Kwela into the progressive jazz ideas of the time. . Unfortunately , because of the politics of the day , most of these great musicians lived and died outside of their own country .
    The Tribute Orkestra endeavours to bring this music back to South African audiences , and to keep the traditions of the more free approach to South African Jazz alive . The Orkestra is made up of some of the most exciting and edgy musicians this country has to offer , and each of them brings something unique and fresh to the sound . One cannot help but be moved by the music of these past masters , which still sounds fresh and innovative almost 50 years later .

  • Assagai - Irin Ajolania

    4:32

    Assagai era un gruppo di afro-rock del Sudafrica attivo nei primi anni settanta a Londra, che incise due album per l'etichetta inglese Vertigo Records.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Assagai was an Afro-rock band from South Africa, active in the early 1970s in London. It consisted of five members: drummer Louis Moholo, trumpeter/flautist Mongezi Feza, tenor saxophonist Bizo Muggikana, guitarist Fred Cocker, and alto saxophonist Dudu Pukwana. They recorded for the British label Vertigo Records.
    Assagai's self-titled debut album was released in 1971. It was reissued on CD by Repertoire Records in 1994.
    Their second and final album, Zimbabwe, was released later in 1971. The album was re-released as LP by Music for Pleasure label, but under a different title, AfroRock.

    South African born and raised pianist/bandleader Chris McGregor formed the racially mixed Blue Notes in the early 1960's, touring and trying to get by in extremely difficult political circumstances as best they could. By 1964, facing continous government harassment, Chris & the Blue Notes fled their South African homeland, finally settling in London in 1966. They made a huge impact on London's jazz scene and befriended many in London's emerging avant-garde jazz community. By 1969, the Blue Notes had drifted apart. Not too long afterwards, Chris formed The Brotherhood Of Breath, which was essentially the Blue Notes, augmented by a large number of the friends that they had made in the British jazz community. The band toured constantly during their peak years of 1971-74, but they only released 3 albums in their lifetime. Travelling Somewhere was recorded at a well known jazz club in Bremen, Germany on January 19th, 1973 for radio broadcast, and is by far the best recorded live document of the Brotherhood. The 12 piece band is a who's who of many of the big names of British free jazz of the early/mid 1970's: Harry Beckett, Mark Charig & Mongezi Feza (trumpets), Nick Evans & Malcolm Griffiths (trombones), Mike Osborne, Evan Parker, Dudu Pukwana & Gary Windo (saxes), Chris McGregor (piano), Harry Miller (double bass) and Louis Moholo (drums). Called One of the truly legendary modern jazz big bands by The Penguin Guide To Jazz On CD, Travelling Somewhere adds to the band's still growing legacy, and will bring their music to a new generation of fans.

    Harry Beckett, Mark Charig & Mongezi Feza - Trumpets
    Nick Evans & Malcolm Griffiths - Trombones
    Mike Osborne, Evan Parker, Dudu Pukwana & Gary Windo - Saxes Chris McGregor - Piano

    This release, Bremen to Bridgewater, contains two CDs of previously unreleased live recordings made in Germany and England during two very different periods of the band’s career. The German radio recordings were made on June 20th, 1971 at Lila Uele, a well known jazz club in Bremen. The English recordings were made at the Bridgewater Arts Center, during two tours that the band made with different lineups in February and November of 1975, and feature some of the very last recordings of trumpeter Mongezi Feza, who died in December of that year. The band’s lineups on these recordings are a veritable who's who of British free jazz, and include Harry Beckett, Marc Charig, Elton Dean, Nick Evans, Harry Miller, Louis Moholo, Mike Osborne, Evan Parker, Dudu Pukwana, Alan Skidmore, Gary Windo and others. In addition to the stunning music, this CD features a 12 page booklet with rare and beautiful photos and detailed liner notes by Francesco Martinelli.
