20h00 – 22h00 – The Kibby Factor

Hosted, Compiled & produced by Cape Town based guitarist, bandleader, composter and recording artist, James “Acid Robot” Kibby from our Cape Town studio and is a mixed genre show of Acid, Avant Garde, Electronic Jazz, Blues and Beyond. Going where most mortals fear to go, bravely beyond the realms of whatever comes into his fertile mind. James has been involved on the Cape music scene for too many years to mention having started out with Basil ‘Manenberg’ Coetzee in the late 80’s and continues his career with his current projects, Acid Blues and Ward 10. James also plays solo acoustic gigs under his own name and solo electronic under the name Acid Robot. His show, The Kibby Factor aims to explore what could potentially be the future of jazz, blues and world music. Going where most would fear to go, however James goes bravely, beyond the realms of convention taking one for an exciting ride of possibilities. Featured albums, tracks and artists are the ones who are seen to be pushing the envelope in terms of using jazz and blues sensibilities to create new offshoots or even new genres. Presenting technology in music as a good thing means exploring the use of software, hardware and synthesized sounds in modern jazz-based composition and improvisation. This does not mean that older music or acoustic music is not featured. The show often features interviews with the artists who’s music is featured and is made available as a weekly podcast on Mixcloud and by email to anyone requesting it. It has known listeners in the UK, Canada, China, Germany, Israel, and the USA as well as all the big cities here in SA. The Kibby Factor first aired in January 2013.

20h00 – 22h00 – The Groove Merchant

Hosted, Compiled & produced by Andy Hardy from Ngongotaha, New Zealand – A mixed show of Groove, Fusion & Funk Jazz down the ages. “You are listening to All Jazz Radio.co.za and this is the latest edition of the groove merchant, I’m Andy Hardy and I’ll be your host for the next 2 hours” Those words or similar are what you will hear each week on my long-established show The Groove Merchant. I have been recording this show (previously Andy’s Jazz Show on UK Jazz Radio) for over 5 years. I have a huge music database and my current project is to clean, catalogue and store my massive vinyl collection of Jazz, Funk & Soul. The show title is a clue to the weekly play list, if it’s groovy I play it, anything from 1950 onwards is fair game but in a typical show you’ll hear The Crusaders, George Benson, Jimmy Smith, Oscar Peterson, Deodato, Donald Byrd and so on. If you are searching for the avant-garde or free jazz you are in the wrong slot! Born in 1960 and raised in London I was exposed to Soul and Jazz music at an early age by DJ’s such as Tony Blackburn and the eclectic John Peel, and later in my teenage years the main man Froggy, the Jazz Funk mafia of Chris Hill, Robbie Vincent and the legendary Caister DJ’s. If I could play music all day I would but to earn a crust I work worldwide as a commissioning engineer, this does of course allow me to dig the crates in many a record store, heaven! If you like my show or just want to comment you can always email me at andysjazzshow@gmail.com and if you are a new artist or just want air time send me your music, if it grooves it’s in the mix.

20h00 – 22h00 – The Kibby Factor

Hosted, Compiled & produced by Cape Town based guitarist, bandleader, composter and recording artist, James “Acid Robot” Kibby from our Cape Town studio and is a mixed genre show of Acid, Avant Garde, Electronic Jazz, Blues and Beyond. Going where most mortals fear to go, bravely beyond the realms of whatever comes into his fertile mind. James has been involved on the Cape music scene for too many years to mention having started out with Basil ‘Manenberg’ Coetzee in the late 80’s and continues his career with his current projects, Acid Blues and Ward 10. James also plays solo acoustic gigs under his own name and solo electronic under the name Acid Robot. His show, The Kibby Factor aims to explore what could potentially be the future of jazz, blues and world music. Going where most would fear to go, however James goes bravely, beyond the realms of convention taking one for an exciting ride of possibilities. Featured albums, tracks and artists are the ones who are seen to be pushing the envelope in terms of using jazz and blues sensibilities to create new offshoots or even new genres. Presenting technology in music as a good thing means exploring the use of software, hardware and synthesized sounds in modern jazz-based composition and improvisation. This does not mean that older music or acoustic music is not featured. The show often features interviews with the artists who’s music is featured and is made available as a weekly podcast on Mixcloud and by email to anyone requesting it. It has known listeners in the UK, Canada, China, Germany, Israel, and the USA as well as all the big cities here in SA. The Kibby Factor first aired in January 2013.

20h00 – 22h00 – The Groove Merchant

Hosted, Compiled & produced by Andy Hardy from Ngongotaha, New Zealand – A mixed show of Groove, Fusion & Funk Jazz down the ages. “You are listening to All Jazz Radio.co.za and this is the latest edition of the groove merchant, I’m Andy Hardy and I’ll be your host for the next 2 hours” Those words or similar are what you will hear each week on my long-established show The Groove Merchant. I have been recording this show (previously Andy’s Jazz Show on UK Jazz Radio) for over 5 years. I have a huge music database and my current project is to clean, catalogue and store my massive vinyl collection of Jazz, Funk & Soul. The show title is a clue to the weekly play list, if it’s groovy I play it, anything from 1950 onwards is fair game but in a typical show you’ll hear The Crusaders, George Benson, Jimmy Smith, Oscar Peterson, Deodato, Donald Byrd and so on. If you are searching for the avant-garde or free jazz you are in the wrong slot! Born in 1960 and raised in London I was exposed to Soul and Jazz music at an early age by DJ’s such as Tony Blackburn and the eclectic John Peel, and later in my teenage years the main man Froggy, the Jazz Funk mafia of Chris Hill, Robbie Vincent and the legendary Caister DJ’s. If I could play music all day I would but to earn a crust I work worldwide as a commissioning engineer, this does of course allow me to dig the crates in many a record store, heaven! If you like my show or just want to comment you can always email me at andysjazzshow@gmail.com and if you are a new artist or just want air time send me your music, if it grooves it’s in the mix.

20h00 – 21h00 – Todd’s Turntable

Hosted, Compiled & produced by Jazz Vocalist Todd Gordon from Edinburgh, Scotland a show which includes Vocal Jazz from across the centuries up to today. Todd Gordon is one of the UK’s acclaimed jazz/swing singers and radio presenters. He has recorded almost 200 editions of his weekly show, Todd’s Turntable, which features many of the world’s greatest singers performing terrific songs. Each edition has a theme… songwriters, arrangers, or categories of songs, etc. – all wrapped up with Todd’s warm and engaging commentary highlighting his passion for and knowledge of jazz, swing and related musical genres. Aged just 11, he started listening to Sinatra recordings and this led him to also collect albums by other singers, bandleaders, arrangers and musicians. A lifelong passion was born. This was consolidated in 1975 when, still a teenager, he met Ella Fitzgerald who later that day invited the young fan on stage during her concert to serenade him with You Are the Sunshine of My Life – an endearing article on this amazing encounter is featured on his website: www.toddgordon.com

20h00 – 22h00 – The Groove Merchant

Hosted, Compiled & produced by Andy Hardy from Ngongotaha, New Zealand – A mixed show of Groove, Fusion & Funk Jazz down the ages. “You are listening to All Jazz Radio.co.za and this is the latest edition of the groove merchant, I’m Andy Hardy and I’ll be your host for the next 2 hours” Those words or similar are what you will hear each week on my long-established show The Groove Merchant. I have been recording this show (previously Andy’s Jazz Show on UK Jazz Radio) for over 5 years. I have a huge music database and my current project is to clean, catalogue and store my massive vinyl collection of Jazz, Funk & Soul. The show title is a clue to the weekly play list, if it’s groovy I play it, anything from 1950 onwards is fair game but in a typical show you’ll hear The Crusaders, George Benson, Jimmy Smith, Oscar Peterson, Deodato, Donald Byrd and so on. If you are searching for the avant-garde or free jazz you are in the wrong slot! Born in 1960 and raised in London I was exposed to Soul and Jazz music at an early age by DJ’s such as Tony Blackburn and the eclectic John Peel, and later in my teenage years the main man Froggy, the Jazz Funk mafia of Chris Hill, Robbie Vincent and the legendary Caister DJ’s. If I could play music all day I would but to earn a crust I work worldwide as a commissioning engineer, this does of course allow me to dig the crates in many a record store, heaven! If you like my show or just want to comment you can always email me at andysjazzshow@gmail.com and if you are a new artist or just want air time send me your music, if it grooves it’s in the mix.

Brandee Younger – Soul Awakening Released, June 2019

Album Cover

CD Review by Eric Alan Sun 20 October 2019

There have been few Jazz Harpists in the world of music, after all how many musicians would count the concert harp as a lead instrument in jazz today. Casper Reardon has been acknowledged as the person who brought the world attention to the harp and a lead jazz instrument and that was way back in the 1930’s. In 1936 he became known as the World’s Hottest Harpist, sadly he passed away at the tender age of 33 in 1941. Having known and enjoyed the works of earlier jazz harpists Turiya (Turiyasangitananda, her full adopted Sanskrit name) Alice Coltrane and Dorothy Jeanne Thompson better known as Dorothy Ashby, and recently discovering the music of Brandee Harper.

This is young harpist, Brandee’s 5th album, Soul Awakening, which has been independently released June 7, 2019 just a few weeks before her birthday on July 1. The album was recorded back in 2012 under the eagle eye and nimble fingers of producer and bassist Dezron Douglas supported by a cast of well-known musicians and friends.

Soul Awakening has come as a very pleasant listening experience and a surprise to me. Many who know me know that I have a penchant for instruments not usually associated in jazz. This highly talented young composer, recording artist, bandleader, sought after studio and touring musician has brought the concert harp, back as the lead instrument to the forefront in the jazz world of today.

As most who know me when reviewing I try not to get too technical and prefer to review the overall likeability of an album. This one is very appealing with each track offering a highly enjoyable listening experience. Each of the musicians and guests bring and fill the soundscape with a joyful exuberance that is heard in their playing showing that they too enjoyed the making of this music. As each chapter unfolds and expands one cannot wait for the full story to be brought to the life in ones minds eye and by the end of the album understanding the full picture of what all concerned were trying to showcase. I must confess that I love this album so give it a listen then add it to your collection one will not be disappointed.

ALL JAZZ RADIO REVIEW – The Gin & Jazz Sessions featuring Buddy Wells & Reza Khota

Thursday 17 January 2019 – By Eric Alan

The intimate venue proved to be the right locale for the extraordinary performances we have so far experienced at the Deep South Distillery. Each of the three performance evenings has been totally diverse and unique which bodes well for South African Jazz Blues, Latin and World Jazzat this intimate venue. Best of all it combines well, very well with the inimitable artisanal products available at each of the evenings. 

The Gin and Jazz Session with Buddy Wells, saxophone and Reza Khota, guitar at the Deep South Distillery in Kommetjie last night was sublime expression and a lesson in the fine art of the duo performance. It was an evening of a few totally re-imagined standards, both South African and International, as well as a number of ama-zing original works by both musicians.It was truly a night to remember because each of the pieces played will never be repeated the same way again. Buddy and Reza are remarkable musicians going to places where many would fear to go, and their rapport showed throughout the performance. I believe they really enjoyed performing for the assembled audience who in turn gave them huge respect with enthusiastic applause. Thanks goodness the evening was recorded for later broadcast on All Jazz Radioonce quality checks have been done.

The gin, Deep South Cape Dry and Ruby cocktails were a taste sensation and enjoyed by one and all, but the best kept secret, now no longer a secret was the Marula Madness, developed and expertly mixed by Sandy, and is in all honesty, extremely moreish. I hope it will be added to the growing list of cocktail recipes in the Deep South Distillery’s Secret Alchemists Book of Mysterious & Ancient Mixology,which can then be experienced and enjoyed by all who visit the distillery over the millennia.

The distinctive Cape Cola, which tastes like no other cola product along with the refreshing Lemi-lemi, which is an incomparable slightly sparkling lemon with a tinge of ginger soft drink, yummolicious. Lasses’ passion shines thought when talking about his products.

Chef Rochelle and Andre Coetzee of AndRoc’S Mobile Kitchen & Catering trailer menu was well  received. I say that I really enjoyed the Roll me a Boerie served in a tortilla with a scrumcious piece of great boerewors, with a dollop of excellent homemade chilli relish, rocket and some crumbled Blue Cheese, totally lip-smackin’ good. The Pizza Sandwich, which is another name for a Quesadilla, made with two tortilla flatbreads pressed together filled with a creamy mozzarella cheese, homemade tomato relish and drizzled with homemade basil pesto. I did not try it but those who did were extremely happy. The dessert, a Berry Cream donut which was a new addition to the menu was particularly decedent in a um, ar, er lovely / way depending on ones view, and yet tasty.

CD Review by Eric Alan – Beverley Beirne with Jason Miles Jazz Just Wants To Have Fun (2018)

Please feel free to share with your FB Followers, Friends and Fans

Having stated my dislike “covers” in the previous review I must add that Jason Miles has done it once again by lending his considerable production, musical and arranging skills to Yorkshire based jazz vocalist Beverley Beirne who along with Jason Miles foray into the world 80’s pop anthems and turning the tunes into future jazz standards.

I must say on first glance at the track listing before listening to a track I didn’t want to like the album but on listening to it a couple of times it was a breath of fresh air and must state the I really like this album and hope there will be another in the same vain. Beverly has a pleasing voice and the interpretations and arrangements are killer.

The album titled Jazz Just Wants To Have Fun, released earlier this year, is what I believe needs be done when an artist decides to cover the classic pops songs of past generations, ok so these are from the 80’s Brit pop era, I mean after all the Great American Songbook came about because of the pop songs over the aeons. Now we have the beginnings of the Great British Songbook. I am very happy with the track listing and the songs covered, classic pop tunes of that decade, and what a cast of musical talent put together to create this, what I would like to call a tour de force. I don’t think anyone who took to and love the pop music of the 80’s will be unhappy with the treatment given these classics. I further think the songwriters will be exceedingly happy to bolster their pensions with the royalties derived from these wonderful re-interpretations of these 80’s classic anthems. Now that’s what I call a great “cover” album, and are the new standards of tomorrow.

How clever are you? Do you think you can you name the originators of all 12 tracks?

Track Listing:

  1. Cum On Feel The Noize (3.29)
  2. Prince Charming (2.40)
  3. Bette Davis Eyes (4.09)
  4. Ghost Town (3.30)
  5. Deeply Dippy (3.11)
  6. When Smokey Sings (6.58)
  7. Cruel Summer (3.04)
  8. Pop Muzik (4.50)
  9. Too Shy (2.39)
  10. Hot In The City (2.58)
  11. Waiting For A Girl Like You (4.56)
  12. Girls Just Want To Have Fun (2.29)

Musicians:

Beverley Beirne (vocals), Sam Watts (piano), Rob Hughes (saxophone/flute), Flo Moore (double bass), Ben Brown (drums), Romero Lubambo (guitar “Cruel Summer”); Dean Brown (guitar “Girls Just Want To Have Fun”); Jason Miles (Hammond B-3 organ “Deeply Dippy” and “Waiting For A Girl Like You.”)

CD Review by Eric Alan – Rebecca Angel (Feat. Jason Miles) Album Title: What We Had (EP)

Please feel free to share with your FB Followers, Friends and Fans

I haven’t done a review for some while now and today I decided that it was time to concentrate on doing so once again. I hope that I’ll be able to write at least 3 add to our website page today.

Earlier this year I was contacted by Brooklyn born and New York resident, record producer, bandleader, musician, recording artist, composer, jazz pianist and keybordplayer, manic passionate music lover and friend Jason Miles, he asked if we would like to check out two of his latest productions. Naturally the answer was yes and he sent us the two albums, both of which featured two women vocalists who I had not yet heard of. The two young ladies are Rebecca Angel’s What We Had and Beverley Beirne’s, Jazz Just Wants To Have Fun both albums were immediately added to our playlists un-listened to, that’s how much I trust Jason’s work. Our presenters, including myself took immediate liking to both of the albums.

Rebecca Angel (Feat. Jason Miles) Album Title: What We Had (EP) Label: Timeless Grooves Records
Genre: Contemporary Jazz / Smooth Electro Pop & Latin Jazz / Vocals Total Time: 32:58 Year Of Release: 2018

This album comprises of 8 tracks and on first listen captured me as a listener, well, because I do have a penchant for vocals especially female vocals. Rebecca has a wonderful voice and tells each story in a fine and beautiful style through the album. The tunes chosen for this release come for the pens of some of the greatest songwriter’s of the world with one track written by Rebecca in collaboration with her Dad, Dennis Angel and the other with the addition of producer Jason Miles. Look at the list of incredible musicians assembled to perform on the album, just awesome.

There is one thing however I personally dislike with a passion and that is “covers”, now let me qualify that by stating when any musician covers a song and nothing has been done to refresh it and make it their own having just followed the dot’s on the original chart, it becomes boring and plain bloody awful. So leave that sort of thing to wedding bands and singers.

Thankfully this is not one of “those” albums, the production team has taken it to another level totally. I mean just listen to the first track on the album, Winter Moon written by Harold Adamson and Hoagy Carmichael shows the way and how to do a cover, this continues through each track through the album. Each track is has a fresh new feel to it and is a joy to listen to. So far I have listened to and played a multitude of times. Each time I hear something new in each of the arrangements throughout the EP, well done to one and all concerned and that you for creating a wonderful body of work. I can’t wait for the next album, and that it be a full one from this team of highly talented musicians.

Track listing:

  1. Winter Moon (5:13) written by Harold Adamson/ Hoagy Carmichael
  2. What We Had (3:52) written by Dennis Angel/ Rebecca Angel/ Jason Miles
  3. Agora Sim (3:15) written by Luiz Alves/ Luizão Paiva
  4. Feel Alive (3:51) written by Dennis Angel/ Rebecca Angel
  5. Stand By Me (4:04) written by Ben E. King/ Jerry Leiber/ Mike Stoller
  6. Jet Samba (Samba Jazz Happiness) (Radio Mix) (4:08) written by Ronaldo Bastos/ Marcos Valle
  7. Stand By Me (Electro Mix) (Bonus Track) (4:03) written by Ben E. King/ Jerry Leiber/ Mike Stoller
  8. Jet Samba (Samba Jazz Happiness) (Ipanema Mix) (Bonus Track) (4:30) written by Ronaldo Bastos / Marcos Valle

Feeling Really Pekkish Munchie Recipe

Recipe begged, borrowed, compiled and adapted by The Klutz in the Kitchen

All Jazz Radio proud winner of the 2018/19 Mzantsi Jazz Award as the Best Radio Station Playing Jazz in South Africa

Here is the recipe for the G & T Cake furbished to us by Steve Erlank of the Deep South Distillery when he was with us in the studio last Wednesday. He has also said he’s going to try to adapt a cheese cake recipe to make a G & T Cheese cake, looking forward to your attempt Steve. It is somewhat complicated even The Klutz in the Kitchen has some difficulty with baking, not being a pastry chef. Have a go and let us know the outcome of your baking efforts.

Gin & Tonic Cake

Recipe byElena Silcock with acknowledgements to BBC Good Food

Preparation time: 60 min

Cooking time: 45 min, plus chilling time

Serves: 12 to 15

 

Stuff to throw it together

250g Salted butter

325g Caster sugar

4 eggs

250g self-raising flour

75g full cream/double-cream Greek yoghurt

Juice of 2 lemons

100 ml Deep South Ruby Gin (the more aromatic the gin, the better)

For the Syrup

100ml tonic water

1 teaspoon of juniper berries (lightly crushed) (For a deeper G&T flavor)

20ml of tonic syrup, obtainable from most bottle stores

For the icing

200g softened butter

400g icing sugar

2 Tablespoons of milk

Zest of 2 lemons

For decoration

2 limes zested then cut into thin slices (or slices of glazed citrus)

¼ cucumber, peeled into ribbons

1 Tablespoon of granulated sugar

A few juniper berries

How to cook it up

Heat the oven to 180C. Grease and line 2 x 20cm cake tins.

Beat together the butter and 200g of the sugar until pale and fluffy, for around 5 mins

Add the eggs one by one, making sure they are fully incorporated before adding the next one. If the mixture looks like it might split, add a tablespoon of your flour, then fold in the rest of the flour

Mix the yoghurt with the juice of one of the lemons and half the Deep South Ruby Gin, and then add this to the cake mixture to make a thick and silky mixture

Split the mixture between the cake tins and bake for 35 mins until a skewer comes out clean

Make the syrup

This is where most of the G&T flavours are found!

While the cake is baking, dissolve the remaining sugar, tonic syrup (if you have), tonic water and juice of one lime over medium heat in a saucepan, with lightly crushed juniper berries added

Once the sugar has dissolved, bring to the boil and reduce for 5-7 mins until you have a thick syrup

Cool for 5 mins, strain then stir in the remaining Deep South Ruby Gin and set aside

Once cake is baked, allow it to cool for 5 minutes, then prick all over with a skewer and liberally spoon syrup over the cake

Make the icing

Allow cake to cool completely before icing.

Make the buttercream icing by beating butter until soft, then fold in icing sugar a bit at a time

Add milk and lemon zest and lend well

Cover one cake with a third of the icing, and place second cake on top.

Cover whole cake in thin layer of icing and place in fridge for 30 mins to make the final coating easier to do.

Coat top and sides of cake with remaining icing

Decorate with sprinkles of lemon zest, lime and cucumber twists

Happy Baking

On Wednesday last week we had Steve Erlank in the studio talking and tasting their award winning gins that he produces at the Deep South Distillery which is located at 53 Heron Park, Wildevoelvlei Rd, Kommetjie, Cape Town, they do tastings and distillery tours by appointment and one can buy their gins directly from them. Currently they have two products available, they are the Cape Dry Gin and Ruby Gin, which the Klutz and I agree that both are superb and we rate 4⅔stars out of 5 on the great product klutzometer.

We have included a Simple Syrup Recipe below this recipe

Deep Southside Gin Mojito – The Klutz decided to rename it the Deep Southside Ginito

Deep Southside Ginito (Gin Mojito)

Serves 1

Prep and Create time a few minutes

Bits and pieces to concoct it

50ml Cape Dry gin

20ml fresh squeezed lime

20ml fresh squeezed lemon

25ml sugar syrup,

6-8 fresh mint leaves

Sparkling water/soda

Procedures to rustle it up 

Pour the gin, fresh lime/lemon juice; sugar syrup and the mint leaves into a glass with a few cubes of ice then muddle enough to bruise the mint. Add ice, and top up with sparkling water/soda to taste, stirring slightly to mix. Steve likes it slightly cloudy with the mint and lime still in it. Garnish with sprig of mint.

Variations:  

Also can be served without ice in a chilled martini glass if you shake the ingredients and strain. Garnish with a round slice or two of lime, or cucumber or kiwi fruit.

Basic Simple Syrup Recipe:

Stuff to make it:

3 cups of Cold Water
1 Cup of Granulated Sugar

Note: Decide which type of Simple Syrup (thin, medium, or thick) you want to make to determine how much water and sugar you need to use.  See Types of Simple Syrup above.

Process to rustle it up 

In a high-sided saucepan over medium-high heat, bring cold water and sugar to a boil.

Turn the heat to low and stir constantly until the sugar dissolves completely and the mixture becomes clear, this should take approximately 3 to 5 minutes.  Remember, the longer you boil it, the thicker the syrup will be when cooled.

To test if the sugar is completely dissolved, use a spoon, (warning don’t use your fingers at all), scoop up a small amount of the syrup. You should not be able to see any sugars crystals in the liquid.  If you do, boil a little longer.

Optional: At this point you can add flavourings (see below for ideas).

After boiling, let the syrup cool to room temperature, then pour into a tightly sealed, clean glass jar and store in the refrigerator  (Any clean and sealable container can be used).

Storing Simple Syrup:  Sugar is a natural preservative, so Simple Syrup keeps for a while in the refrigerator.  Eventually mold will begin to grow if stored too long.  You can also stir in 1 tablespoon corn syrup to help ensure the syrup stays smooth.

Reason to Celebrate because it’s Burger Day today, and is a great excuse to either head out to the local burger joint or if feeling adventurous then get out the cast iron pan or perhaps fire up the braai (barbecue) I mean, what’s not to like about a fat, juicy burger?

The only drawback – the high risk of food poisoning if not cooked properly!

Quite simply, the best way to ensure the burger is safe is to make sure it is cooked properly!  This means there should be no pink visible in the middle of the patty, and juices should run clear. But don’t rely on the colour alone – always use a meat thermometer to test the core temperature of the burger

Recommended cooking temperatures:

Beef burgers:cook to a core temperature of 71°C (160°F)

Chicken burgers:cook to a core temperature of 74°C (165°F)

Happy Burger Day, let’s be smart and safe, and cook those burgers properly. Even if you’re dining in a restaurant, make sure to specify the same!

Some Burger Day History

Burger Day is a day of appreciation for hamburgers with friends and family. The term hamburger is derived from the city of Hamburg, Germany, where beef from Hamburg cows was minced and formed into patties to make Hamburg steaks.
The origin of the hamburger in the United States remains long debated, although most claim that the hamburger originated between 1880 and 1900. Since then, this beef patty in a bun has become a global staple of the fast-food diet and the backyard cookout. In recent years, these traditional beef patties have been transformed to include other meat and vegetarian options such as, bison, ostrich, deer, chicken, turkey, veggies, tofu and bean patties.

Burger Day Facts & Quotes

Louis Lassen is believed to have invented the hamburger, according to New York Magazine.

One of the most expensive burgers in the world is The Biggest Damn Burger in the World, made by Juicy Foods in Corvallis, Oregon. With a price tag of $5,000, the burger includes 777 pounds of meat and toppings.

Why not try making burgers with alternative toppings such as Mac & Cheese, Crispy Bacon & Avocado, Peanut Butter & Banana, or Shrimp & Styve Pap (Firm Grits),

For a healthier and nutritious take on the traditional burger, try a veggie burger. It’s sacrilegious to my and the Kluzes way of thinking, but if mince is not your thing then try a Lentil and barley patty made from lentils, barley, breadcrumbs and spices including cumin, oregano, chili powder, black pepper and d ry garlic powder. Some options include replacing burger toppings with broccoli and cheese, and replacing potato fries with baked sweet potatoes or replacing the bun with lettuce.

BTW, Just thought you’d like to know, it’s alsoBanana Lovers Day.

The Klutz thought it would be a good call to use this Woolies recipe so one does not have to make the patties from scratch

Woolies Double beef burger with smoked cheddar and sriracha mayo

Double beef burger with smoked cheddar and sriracha mayo

Recipe by Abigail Donnelly

Preparation time: 20 min

Cooking time: 20 min

Serves: 4

Stuff to throw it together

8 Woolies thick beef burgers

1 Tablespoon of butter

1 Tablespoon of canola oil

½ a cup Woolies Clarke’s Kitchen hot sticky plum sauce

8 slices Woolies smoked Cheddar

4 burger rolls, halved and toasted

Sriracha mayonnaise, for spreading

2 Tablespoon of good-quality mayonnaise

1 Tablespoon of creamed horseradish

Lettuce, chopped, for serving

2 tomatoes, sliced

4 Teaspoons of Woollies basil pesto

1 red onion, sliced

4 gherkins, sliced

How To Cook It Up

Preheat the oven to 180°C

Break up the patties and reshape into 4 large patties

Heat the butter and oil in a large ovenproof pan and cook the patties for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Pour in the plum sauce, transfer to the oven and roast for 10 minutes, or until done to your liking

Top each patty with 2 slices of cheese

Spread the sriracha mayo onto the bottom halves of the rolls. Mix the mayonnaise and horseradish and spread onto the top halves of the rolls

Place a patty on the bottom halves of the rolls, then add the lettuce, tomato, pesto, onion and gherkins and the top halves of the rolls

Cook’s note: The perfect burger is all about the balance between a juicy patty, the perfect texture, crunch and flavour

Buon Appetito

Reasons to Celebrate – Monday August 20th, 2018

Today Lemonade, Bacon Lover’s and Chocolate Pecan Pie Day, damn what a day to make choices of which to highlight, huh! Sjoe, jinna, man ok blerry hell, I’m going with bacon so here are some fun facts about Bacon. `The meaty morsel is one of the oldest processed meats in history. You see the Chinese began salting pork bellies as early as 1500 B.C. More than half of all homes keep bacon on hand at all times. Pregnant women should eat bacon as it is said to contain Choline, which is found in bacon, helps foetal brain development.

As a baconmaniac I love this one because bacon is said to cure hangovers, don’t care where it’s true or not. Bacon has been said to be the duct tape of food world because you can wrap it around just about anything, and immediately all problems of the day solved.

Another food fact is that Harry Brearly of Thomas Firth & Sons discovered how to make ‘the steel that doesn’t rust’ by accident and was first cast in Sheffield, Englan on this day in 1913

Ok lets see what lemonade day is all about, because we’ve go some space available to do so.

Lemonade originated in the Mediterranean region in the 13th century, and the recipe eventually made its way to Europe. From here, it arrived in America. The beverage was made and sold as an everyday refreshment and as a tonic, used to treat colds and other ailments. In France, you could purchase a glass from street vendors known as “lemoadiers.”

To celebrate Lemonade Day, it is really quite simple make your own homemade lemonade which can be shared friends and family. Dissolve 2 cups of sugar in 1 cup of hot water. Then stir in 2 cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice and 4 Litres of cold water. Pour into glasses filled with ice and garnish with a lemon slice and a sprig of mint.

Just thought I’d add this pic for fun.

Enjoy!


And Finally

“Listening is more important than anything because that’s what music is. Somebody is playing something & you’re receiving it.” – Carla Bley


Have a great week, stay tuned, more coming your way

Feeling Really Pekkish Munchie Recipe

Recipe begged, borrowed, compiled and adapted by The Klutz in the Kitchen

Today August 15th – International Lemon Meringue Pie Day

Tomorrow, Thursday August 16th it’s International Rum Day and Bratwurst Day

The Klutz in the Kitchen not being a particulary good baker has decide not to bake a Lemon Meringue Pie therefore he has decided on ………………

COTTAGE PIE as todays recipe

According to Wikipedia the recipe can vary widely. The defining ingredients are minced meat (commonly beef when named cottage pie or lamb when named shepherd’s pie), typically its cooked in a gravy with chopped or sliced onions and sometimes other vegetables, such as peas, celery or carrots, and topped with mashed potato. The pie is sometimes also topped with grated cheese.

The term cottage pie was in use by 1791, when the potato was being introduced as an edible crop affordable for the poor (cottage, meaning a modest dwelling for rural workers). The term shepherd’s pie did not appear until 1854, and was used synonymously with cottage pie, regardless of whether the meat was beef or mutton. In the United Kingdom, the term shepherd’s pie is now commonly used when the meat is lamb.

I’m really partial to Cottage or Shepherds Pie so our grumpy Klutz searched far and wide to find this very simple, easy yet tasty recipe using all shortcuts to create a meal all will enjoy, also thanks to Royco®

Preparation time: 15 min

Cooking time: 35 min

Serves: 4

Stuff to throw it together

Royco® Savoury Gravy

650g Beef Mince

50g Tomato Paste

1 Medium Onion thinly sliced

4 cloves of garlic finely chopped

2 cups frozen mixed veg, defrosted

4 potatoes, cooked and mashed

¼ cup milk

Klutz inspired optional extra stuff

2 chilli’s seeded and finely chopped (must be added to step 3)

1 large cup grated cheese (to be spread evenly over the top of the mash)

How to cook it up

  1. Prepare the Royco® gravy according to packet instructions.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  3. In a pan brown the onions add the garlic half way through the browning process once done set aside on a plate.
  4. In the same pan brown the mince when done, add the browned onions and garlic, tomato paste, 1 cup beef stock or water and prepared Royco® sauce, simmer for 10 minutes, stir through the mixed veg.
  5. Mix together mashed potato and milk, season with salt and pepper.
  6. Place mince in an ovenproof dish and top with mash.
  7. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden and bubbling.

Buon Appetito

All Jazz Radio named the Radio category winner at the 2nd Mzantsi Jazz Awards last night in Johannesburg

When I found out that All Jazz Radio had been nominated as one of the six finalists in the 2nd Mzantsi Jazz Awards in the newly added category, The Best Radio Station Playing Jazz it came as a completely unexpected surprise. As it is a public vote category we then followed the instructions issued by the organisers and started calling for votes from our listeners and followers on our social media pages, website and during our shows. Looking at our fellow nominees in the category, Alex FM, CCFM 107.5. Kaya FM, Metro FM, and Veterans Voice Radio we knew it was going to be difficult, undaunted we continued our campaign.

The event, which took place on Saturday night in Jo’burg and we could sadly not attend the event, as we had no resources to do so being a total volunteer operated online radio station. We did not know the results until the organisers emailed us on Sunday afternoon letting us know that A.J.R. had won The Best Radio Station Playing Jazz category. I was completely taken by surprise, more so than when we found out of our nomination. I was gobsmacked and at a totally loss for words. I was expecting either Kaya FM or Metro FM to be the winners, I mean who would have thought that an online volunteer broadcaster would be the winner.

We are humbled by this accolade however it validates what we have always believed, that a radio station playing Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz and promoting South African and Jazz from Africa could work on a daily basis. Though many hurdles remain for us, we can face them with renewed vigour and determination firm in our belief that we are on the right path.

I am reminded of Gary David Goldberg’s quote. ”It takes a lot of people to make a winning team. Everybody’s contribution is important.” Therefore I would like to thank all of our listeners and supporters who cast their vote for us and I must also offer a colossal vote of thanks to our team of local and international volunteer presenters, Brian Currin, James Kibby, Clifford Graham, Wolfgang König in Berlin, Andy Hardy in New Zealand, Rhys Phillips in France, Todd Gordon in Scotland and husband and wife team Jeff Williams and Kari Gaffney in the USA without whose on-going commitment and passion for what we will continue doing, supporting and promoting the wide genre mixes of Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz from South Africa, Africa and the rest of the global village. Also a considerable thanks to our “webiter” as I like to call her but in reality she is our reporter, writer, columnist, reviewer, critic and commentator Carol Martin and to Karen Jordi for her invaluable assistance with the technicalities and changes to our website.

An immense vote of thanks must also go to Chris Grant and his NetDynamix team for and putting up with me as well as keeping us streaming all day, everyday because without them there would be no A.J.R.

I would also like to proffer a massive thank you to all of the independent musicians and the jazz radio promoter’s worldwide who make sure we receive the latest releases by many incredible talented artists many of whom have never been heard on the airwaves of our continent before for inclusion on our playlists.

Sjoe! Still trying to wrap my head around what has happened and what it means to us…….

See the full list of winner below.


Quote

I was lucky enough to grow up in an era when radio was less formatted. It was really special. You could hear a jazz song then a pop song then a show tune then some jazz. Basically, whatever the DJ felt like playing, he would play. He was educating you and exposing you to things you would never hear otherwise. Todd Rundgren

Nogga (Another) Quote

The great jazz radio stations have a duty to continue evolving their format just as audiences ask the musicians to evolve. How do you do that with a form of music that has 100 years of recorded history? How do you also keep it contemporary so you don’t isolate your listeners? These are major questions. Jason Moran


Laugh of the week

St. Peter in Heaven is checking ID’s. He asks a man, “What did you do on Earth?”
The man says, “I was a doctor.”
St. Peter says, “Okay, go right through those pearly gates. Next! What did you do on Earth?”
“I was a school teacher.”
“Go right through those pearly gates. Next! And what did you do on Earth?”
“I was a musician.”
“Go around the side, up the freight elevator, through the kitchen…..”


Reasons to Celebrate – Monday August 13, 2018 is Left-Handers’ Day 

Every year on August 13, we celebrate the 10% of the population that is left-handed. This day is also an opportunity to raise awareness about the needs of left-handed children.

If you are left-handed, you know that living in a world designed for right-handed people can be quite difficult. Opening doors, writing in spiral notebooks, and using a computer mouse can be awkward and frustrating. Studies have shown that left-handedness is often associated with intellectual creativity. Famous left-handers include Michelangelo, Mozart, Jimi Hendrix and Jim Henson!

There are several ways you can celebrate Left-Handers’ Day. If you’re left-handed, declare a “lefty zone” around your personal space, where everything must be done left-handed. If you’re a righty, do something nice for your lefty friends. Buy them a left-handed pen or can-opener to make their lives a little easier!

Today is also Filet Mignon Day, The Klutz in the Kitchen si somewhat pissed off because we did not lead with this celebration

This week is Elvis Week

Drinks, Beverage ‘n Cocktails to enjoy with Friends

Recipe begged, borrowed, compiled and adapted by The Klutz in the Kitchen

August is coffee month and there is nothing nicer to celebrate it with a thick, creamy hot chocolate mixed with coffee, cream and Pinotage. Careful, this one can become quite addictive addsome sugar if you really must or a touch of Pinotage Muscadel if you can find it. Top it off with some whipped cream and sprinkle some crumbled chocolate.Remember too that August 12th Chocolate Milkshake Day

Pinotage Mocha (coffee & hot chocolate)

Serves 8

Prep and Create time 10

Bits and pieces to concoct it

750ml heavy cream (not reduced fat half n half or milk)

6 teaspoons Mazina (cornstarch)

1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips I prefer dark chocolate chips

375 ml of brewed coffee

375 ml of Pinotage

Optional

Sugar to taste

Whipped cream for serving

Procedures to rustle it up 

  1. Add the cream and cornstarch to a medium-sized pot
  2. Whisk until the cornstarch is dissolved
  3. Add the chocolate chips and place over medium heat. Heat just until all the chocolate has melted and dissolved into the milk, stirring continuously (about 6-7 minutes)
  4. The heat may need to be reduced to low to keep the liquid from boiling
  5. The liquid will be thick.
  6. Remove the pot from the heat.
  7. Slowly whisk in the coffee and wine about ¼ cup at a time.
  8. Pour into mugs to serve.
  9. Optional
  10. Add sugar to taste.
  11. Top each mug with whipped cream.

The high fat content of the heavy cream, the cornstarch, and the slow addition of the coffee and wine will all help reduce the chance of curdling. Please do not modify these steps.

Feeling Really Pekkish Munchie Recipe

Recipe begged, borrowed, compiled and adapted by The Klutz in the Kitchen

Here we have another hearty meal to prep and make Beef Stroganoff according to Wikipedia “Beef Stroganov is a Russian dish of sautéed pieces of beef served in a sauce with Smetana. From its origins in mid-19th-century Russia, it has become popular around the world, with considerable variation from the original recipe”.

The name derived from a French-born Russian aristocrat, Pavel Alexandrovich Stroganov, whose cook, André Dupont, decided to name the recipe of his beef fricassee after the name of his employer. However several other versions exist as to how the recipe was invented. Thanks Wikipedia.

Now as you know The Klutz is all about quick and easy therefore this recipe uses any and all shortcuts to make it so, therefore this was found on the Knorr website.

Beef Stroganoff

Preparation time: 10 min

Cooking time: 35 min

Serves: 4

Stuff to throw it together

6 chives, chopped (optional)

1 pinch fine black pepper

500ml cold milk The Klutz prefers to use real cream or sour cream, your choice

50ml sherry (optional) The Klutz feel this is essential

3m Paprika

1 pkt Knorr Beef Stroganoff Dry Cook-in-Sauce

500g beef strips (for quicker cooking though much more expensive, the Klutz uses the tails of beef fillet or when available and less expensive but no, Scotch fillet)

200g button mushrooms, sliced. Hey I like mushrooms so the Klutz doubled what the original recipe requires

15ml oil

1 medium onion, sliced into rings

1 green pepper, sliced Due to the fact I’m not at all fond of green peppers. The Klutz has used a cup of peas instead.

How to cook it up

  1. Fry beef strips and mushrooms in a splash of oil.
  2. Add onion, green pepper the peas and paprika and continue to fry until the onions are soft.
  3. Add the sherry.
  4. Mix Knorr sachet contents with 500 ml cold milk and add this to the beef mixture.
  5. Bring to the boil, stirring often.
  6. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until beef is tender.
  7. Season with black pepper and sprinkle with chives.

Buon Appetito

Drinks, Beverage ‘n Cocktails to enjoy with Friends

Compiled by The Klutz in the Kitchen

It’s a cold day so the Klutz decided to find a recipe from an area of the global village where people really know how to stave of the winter chill. Chest puffed out with pride and happiness he has found this traditional Scandinavian hot punch for the cold winter months! It is the Scandinavian equivalent of Glühwein and should be treated with healthy respect if one is going to opperate any heavy machinery of any sort.

Glögg combines a selection of warm spices and dried fruit with Vodka, Red Wine and Port, all gently simmered to produce a wonderfully complex and tasty variation on mulled wine. Quantities can be adapted depending on how much you’re making but the below recipe will make a batch of about 1.5 litres. Recipe found of the Top’s Website.

Beverage Recipe – Glögg

Serves 4

Prep and Create time 10

Bits and pieces to concoct it

250ml Vodka

750ml Red Wine

500ml Port

Half cup of Brown Sugar

6-8 Whole Star Anise

A very, very much younger moi

The musings, ranting’s and mutterings about some tittle-tattle, chit-chatter of this, that and the next thing and maybe some other interesting blather about the World of Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz and a few other things compiled by presenter, compiler, producer, reviewer, webitor, MC, and er, um, ah, ok then creative mastermind of Eric Alan


South Africa commemorates Women’s Month in August as a tribute to the more than 20 000 women who marched to the Union Buildings in 1956 in protest against the extension of Pass Laws to women. The Government of South Africa declared August women’s month and 9thAugust is celebrated annually as Women’s Day.

The Late Shakier Roberts

Damn really a sad bad news week this has been firstly learning of the passing of Polish trumpeter, bandleader, composer Tomasz Stańko from John Kelmans post early Monday evening, then to hear the news as the week drew on from Billy Kerker of Dr. Brian Nhlanhla Thusi passing on Wednesday 1 August. I had a long chat with him on the telephone some weeks ago. Further the passing of the legendary Winston Ntshona, bassist Mandla Zikala, and the young trombonist, taken too soon Shakier Roberts. Thank the gods that the past terrible week is done. Condolences to all who morn the loss of these talented contributers to the arts and culture scene.


New Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz releases are happening on a daily basis around the global village, and it is difficult to keep up. Yet the record labels say that these formats are only a tiny percentage of worldwide CD sales. Is that a true reflection? What are your thoughts?

I believe this is not the case as it is only a tiny percentage that these major labels release. Multitudes of Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz musicians are releasing their albums independently thereby controlling their own destiny. Just look at the list of albums sent to us, and that’s only a tiny number, there is so much more coming from the global village today. Check out the list we’ve received so far this year and make some exciting new discoveries.

Barmy beats of Afro-Balkan ‘beasts’ bring joy to Johannesburg By STRUAN DOUGLAS Article from the BusinessDay 17 JULY 2018 – 05:05

Bombshelter Beast, a 14-piece acoustic-only orchestra, meld a range of genres, including gypsy rhythm and kwaito, to produce wild music. Picture: Supplied

From comical to quirky and weird to wonderful, Bombshelter Beast’s Afro-Balkan sound combines the fast pace of Joburg ubuntu with the craziness of Eastern Europe.

The idea to make a comic film about a buffoonish Joburg soccer team with a Serbian coach, starring Kagiso Lediga and Trevor Noah, propelled jazz trumpeter Marcus Wyatt into a carnivalesque musical space.

Wyatt felt his soundtrack from the resulting Taka Takata movie was a great foundation from which to form an inclusive 14-piece orchestra called Bombshelter Beast.

Laugh of the week

Two musicians who haven’t seen each other for some time meet late one night in a jazz club. “Hey, man,” says one, “I hear you recorded a CD.”
“Yeah, that’s right, man,” replies the other. “I released it a few months ago.”
“How much have you sold?” asks the first.
“Ohh…just the house and the car.”


Reasons to Celebrate

August 06, 2018 is Cool Drink Float Day

Between the creamy vanilla ice cream and the frothy cool drink foam, how can anyone resist this sweet refreshment? Today we celebrate this tasty treat.

At the end of the 19th century, a man named Frank Wisner invented the first float. This early version was also known as a “black cow” ‘cause of the colour of the soda used to make one of these delicious beverages, just add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to a tall glass of sparkling soda. (Note: If you reverse the directions and add the cola to the ice cream you’ll end up with a big mess!)

Today, enjoy this delicious tradition and make your own float for Cool Drink Float Day!

August 06, 2018 is also Assistance Dog Day, Wiggle Your Toes Day, Garfiled’s dog friend Odie’s Birthday, Hiroshima Day also known as No Nukes Day. Hiroshima Day marks the anniversary of the day the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the city…

Dan Shout – In With a Shout Secret Weapons released by Pathway Records (UK) (2018)

Dan Shout blowing up a storm

By Eric Alan

For me its always an exciting occasion to be contacted by a South African Jazz, Blues, Latin or World Jazz musician from all of the subcategories of our genre mix and told of their forthcoming brand new album release. Rarely does that happen, usually I’m always keeping an eye out to see and find out who’s doing what and when. The social media has been a great help discovering those new albums and those that are often debutants.

Dan Shout is someone who doesn’t let the grass grow under him and makes contact when things are about to happen. As a musician he is one of those rare species who takes his career very seriously. He is an astute business minded musician who conducts himself in a highly professional manner. He has created an environment, which is conducive to success in the music industry; no make that the jazz music business of today, something of which I admire totally.

Secret Weapons is Dan’s fourth album and second under the moniker In With A Shout which is described on his website as a contemporary, African jazz-fusion project led by saxophonist Dan Shout, I must add that he is also a bandleader, composer, arranger and teacher.

The first track grab hold of me from the opening bars, after things just kinda flowed from there. I was caught up in the musical magic coming form the speakers. The recording itself is quite outstanding, well done to the recording engineers. The album cover is a gem too, it reflects the albums title in a kind of steampunk fashion, whoever the designer was, cudo’s.

As with his earlier albums each relflects his journey as a jazz musician in Africa with each CD (Book) release. The story told though Secret Weapons continues the earlier albums narrative with each track telling the listener of his passage to the here and now. I look forward to grander accomplishments with the subsequent CDs. He found his own unique voice in the cutthroat and fickle world of jazz in Africa a long time ago and continues to grow with each album release. Don’t wait another 4 years to release the next one Dan. This is an album that is a must have for any self respecting jazz afficianado and will stand the test of repeated listening.

Secret Weapons will be available for purchase from Friday 3 August 2018 at https://danshout.bandcamp.com  and other social media or go to Dan’s website at http://www.danshout.co.za/in-with-a-shout

Change is very much in the air even here at All Jazz Radio. There is a lot happening with our website and I must thank Carol Martin and Karen Jordi for assisting to make the very necessary changes and for motivating me to continue the forward motion. As volunteers they are showing unbridled passion for what has thus far been achieved. There is still much more to be done given our total lack of any sort of resources. We still need more help to lend us a hand and if you believe you can assist, please contact me or Carol with you offer of assistance and boy would we like it, please email her at seawave@iafrica.com

The name of this blog has also changed and hence forward will be known as Jazz Rendezvous Blog Supreme and we have taken out a few items which will now have their own post categories and will be found in the More Articleson the right hand side of the All Jazz Radio Home pages making it simpler to access the stories.

Many are by now aware of the my vision issues, my drivers licence was not renewed due to the problem and am in need of an operation on both of my eyes in order to get back to healthy vision again. There have been a number of ads on FB for a benefit concert arranged to assist with the huge expenses, I would like to thank AJR presenter, long time broadcaster and long standing friend Clifford Graham for putting together the concert at the renowned Barleycorn Music Club on Monday 6thAugustat the Saggy Stone Bar and Restaurant, Villagers Rugby Club, 11 Imam Haron Road Claremont Cape Town. Also, in advance of the event I must thank the following musicians for agreeing to be part of the evening

Tina Schouw is a friend who has been a part of my life in a number of ways throughout my broadcast career, songwriter, musician, vocalist, poet and and all round wonderful person.

High End Blues, a band that celebrates the blues like no other, who recently released their debut album. The line-up of the band consists of Beshara Ornellas (vocals), AJR presenter James Kibby (guitar and vocals), Mark Buchanan (guitars), Ian Buchanan (bass guitar), Mark McDonald (drums) and Lance Allam (fiddle. mandolin, harmonica and vocals).

Another musician who has also played a great roll during my broadcasting raison d’être is musician, prolific composer, bandleader, recording artist, and part of a legendary musical dynasty Hilton Schilder.

Hilton, like Tina were some of the first artists that I played during my show way back in 1994 when my presenting career started at Peace Radio, sjoe, 24 years ago when Neil Johnson and Martin Baillie gave me the chance to be part of broadcast history during that important period on our road to democracy, sjoe, now I really feel part of the Tribe of Eld. Thank you once again to all of the musicians giving their time and effort to help me throughout my broadcast career for without hem there would be no Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz to share with listeners. I look forward to you being there and seeing you there.

*********************************************

As a critic, reviewer, presenter, writer it is important to keep an open mind when undertaking any of those tasks. There is also an obligation for the reviewer to be honest, truthful, and unbiased when undertaking the task at hand. Much of the media today lives in a good news world, other that when it comes to politics and disaster, but when it comes to the art of reviewing of live shows, theatre, movies, music, albums, books, restaurants and the arts as a whole the rules are just thrown out of the window. I mean how often do you see a review of any sort where the reviewer pulls no punches and tells it like it is without fear or favour?

Is it fair that only the good reviews are published? Is it being fair-minded to the artists/musicians concerned? Most of the unfavourable/bad reviews/critiques are never published at all. Why not? Well, with most commercial media operations it’s the bottom line and shareholders that they are more concerned with, most of all they don’t want to lose any advertising spend. This was something that was told to me by the editors when I reviewed for a few publications a number of years ago; even then I knew it was being dishonest.

I have asked our AJR presenters, reviewers, writers and critic’s to give us their honest and unbiased opinions, pulling no punches when they are asked to write and review any CD’s, live events, restaurants and interviews. Am I right in asking them to do so? I believe I am, because those artists who are being reviewed deserve to know the honest truth about their efforts, not so?. Though that truth the good, the bad and the ugly may sting for a short while, when their mind returns to logical thought they will then understand and will make adjustments to make sure that the mistakes made won’t occur again. It should been seen a constructive criticism and truth to power thereby making for a better project next time. What do you think?

Dongfeng Liu Releases China Caribe on the Zoho Music label

Sjoe! is all I could say when this album arrived a few weeks ago and as I was adding it to our playlist I thought who in the world is Dongfeng Liu a totally new name to me and kinda gave little thought to it, it was on our playlist and continued add all the other new release’s to the playlist. You see it is not that often that I get the chance to listen to a full album in one sitting other than when I choose to write an album review.

Like all of our presenters here at All Jazz Radio most of my listening happens when I program all of the shows that I compile on a daily basis. Who said running a small independent online Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz radio station from little ol’ Cape Town was easy. As the sole fulltime volunteer with absolutely no resources whatsoever, I can tell you it ain’t, nuff of those sentiments.

Usually I look for the new and unusual stuff to listen to, however, this one was finally noticed when I played the track Arcadia during my show. It’s not that often that something say’s jinne and captures me totally as this track did. Sadly it’s taken me a few weeks to “discover” the full album and to actually set time aside to sit down and really listen China Caribe.

At first I did not know how or where to categorise what I was hearing out of the speakers, but what I heard was an intriguing fusion from China, Cuban and Mongolian roots and instrumentation. I was immediately hooked from the opening refrains of the first track In The Clouds and knew that I had found something very special in China Caribe. I knew too that I was going to be listening to and introduce to friends, family and our fans for a long time. Each track offers an enjoyable listening experience with the journey being extremely enticing. The amalgamation of ChiMongCu and is a synthesis that just works so well. I love it and I think many will too.

L to R: Roberto Quintero, Dongfeng Liu, John Benitez, Francis Benitez. Photo: Melanie Futorian.

It’s a little early however; I look forward to what Dongfeng Lui will surprise us with next. Sjoe! I’ve got to have a friendly word with the powers that be from the Cape Town International Jazz Festival to include him and this band on the Rosies Stage at the 2019 Festival

We enthusiastically recommend that you go on a journey of discovery through the list and see how many you can find and listen to on the interweb, maybe adding to your collection as well. Do let us know what you likes and dislikes are. By the way we have played most of the track from all of the albums thus far and hope to have played them all by the end of this year. We believe what we have been privileged to receive this year and is just a tiny number that has so far release throughout the global village. Good Hunting.

We had a great chat with the founder of the Mzantsi Jazz Award, Dr. Mongezi Makhalima during The Jazz Rendezvous Radio Pinotage, Coffee & Stockvel Show on Thursday, the hour was interesting and illuminating. What we caught a glimpse of a highly motivated and extremely passionate man with a deep abiding love for jazz as a whole. He was extremely open and honest to a fault, acknowledging and accepting all faults and criticisms on the chin in an engaging positive manner. We wish him and his small team well with this endeavour as it is the first steps to paying homage to who share the same passion for the music, musicians, writers, critics, reviewers and radio presenters who are helping bring jazz back to the forefront of aficionados once again. South African Jazz really deserves it rightful place in the sun.

Many jazz lovers and followers of our social media pages, groups and mails are by now aware that All Jazz Radiohas been nominated for an Mzantsi Jazz Award 2018 which came totally unexpected. No thinking too much about it and promptly forgot that we had submitted ourselves in the new radio category. It was much to my surprise when we received the notification of our nomination. This is the second such time that I have been nominated for an award of any kind the first being for the best weekend show for Jazz Rendezvous when still on Radio 2000 years ago.

Here is the list of the nominees in the Best Radio Station Playing Jazz Category apart from ourselves included in the category are Alex FM, CCFM, Kaya FM, Metro FM and Veterans Voice Radio, an interesting dichotomy neh?

REASONS TO CELEBRATE

International Daiquiri Day Strawberry daiquiri

It’s International Daiquiri Day!

The daiquiri is a rum-based cocktail invented by an American mining engineer named Jennings Cox. It is believed that Cox created the first daiquiri in the early 1900s at a small bar in Santiago, Cuba. After having run out of gin, Cox opted for a rum-based cocktail instead.

The original daiquiri recipe called for white rum, lime juice, and sugar. According to another legend, Ernest Hemingway inspired the creation of the frozen variety at El Floridita in Havana in the 1940s. The bartender’s name was Constantino Ribalaigua, and he is often considered the true creator of the daiquiri. Today, there are many daiquiri flavours and varieties from which to choose, including the popular strawberry daiquiri.

To celebrate International Daiquiri Day, share a round of these delicious cocktails with your friends! Make them at home or look for drink specials at your local bar. Cheers!

July is Oven Grilling Month, Artisanal Ice Cream Month and Gourmet Hot Dog Month

Universal Music Group set to launch Nigeria division

Artists from the West African countries of Ghana, Nigeria and Gambia will benefit from the launch of a new division of Vivendi’s Universal Music Group (UMG), as the world’s largest music label seeks to expand into Africa’s most populous nation and the wider region.

The music entertainment group said on Tuesday its new strategic division, Universal Music Nigeria, will operate from Nigeria’s commercial capital Lagos.

Nigerian music, much like its Nollywood film industry, is popular across much of Africa. Nigerian music artists have popularised the Afrobeat musical genre and gone on to sign record deals, sell out concerts and work with international artists to increase the global reach of African music.

Music revenue in Nigeria – mostly derived from sales of mobile phone ringtones – grew 9 percent in 2016, year-on-year, to reach $39 million and is expected to rise to $73 million by 2021, auditing firm Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC) said last year.

Focus on Ghana, Nigeria and Gambia

Sipho Dlamini, Managing Director of Universal Music South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa said that the Nigeria division will focus on developing artists and musicians from West Africa countries, particularly Nigeria, Ghana and Gambia.

“Our Nigeria team will support, nurture, and help develop artists, while creating opportunities for new talent from the region to reach the widest possible audience,” said Dlamini.

UMG said the new division will work alongside the label’s existing operations in Ivory Coast and Morocco.

Universal Music Nigeria also plans to open a recording studio in Lagos, which would be the label’s second fully purposed studio in Africa alongside another in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Nigeria’s music industry faces an array of challenges ranging from the lack of proper legal structures, to piracy and difficulties in distributing and monetising content.

The country’s arts, entertainment and recreation sector contributed 0.29 percent to real GDP in the first quarter of this year, the statistics office said.

Diva Jazz Orchestra 25th Anniversary Project (2018)

Please share with your FB Followers, Friends and Fans

When I sit down to write a review, it is without thought like a blank piece of paper, the words then kinda just flow from my mind to my fingers, so much so that I’m in a sort of focused trance, no don’t be silly I’m not on medical marijuana nor am I smoking my socks as some may assume but I feel so lekker (nice) when I hear a truly great jazz big band/orchestra.

I let the music infuse my being with a solid wave of euphoria along with a really delectable Glass (note the big G) and a half of liquid mellowness, better known as Pinotage, that alluring russet coloured liquid nectar of the gods hastens my collective thoughts to the task at hand, which, is writing or should I rather say typing away on the keyboard.

The Diva Jazz Orchestra


This is the first time I’ve received a Diva Jazz Orchestra album, sent to me by Kari Gaffney of Kari-On Productions with whom I’ve had a long working relationship over many years, in fact over more than 24 years of my radio career, sjoe, now I really feel like a member The August Society of Crusty Old People, neh! Kari has always sent us the most amazing new music by some of the finest innovative young jazz talent her company promotes to jazz radio in the USA and the rest of the global village. Another fact is that some years ago I invited her to do a show for us and I’m very grateful that she agreed, and along with her husband Jeff Williams who produces and also presents together with her. Jeff has been producing the show for some while now, and better yet they also supply the show to a number of stations in the US and Canada. Thanks for all the extra hard work you do Kari and Jeff also thanks for the wonderful music and artists Kari. AJR has become known for playing more new jazz musicians few have ever heard before. Jeez, been prattling on haven’t we?, and now onwards and upwards to infinity and beyond. Damn, why did that pop into my head and where does that line come from?

The Late Stanley Kay

The Diva Jazz Orchestra is led from behind the drum kit by Music Director/Drummer Sherrie Maricle and has been since the orchestra’s inception. The album sees a bunch of fresh new music written for this very special album by members of the orchestra as a tribute to the person who started it all those years ago The Late Stanley Kay, who also happened to manage a fellow drummer’s band and used to sit in for maestro, Buddy Rich from time to time.

Stanley Kay was conducting a band which the now music director and drummer for the D.J.O, was playing, so impressed with her talent, he ruminated that there could be other woman who played to the same standard as Sherrie. His views turned to certitude when auditions were held throughout the USA, then in June of 1992 the orchestra became a reality and, that they say dear jazz lovers is history.

I’ve been listening the album throughout the week prior to my next deadline for the publication, and often  listen three to four times a day soaking in the incredible assemblage of jazz talent in the orchestra on this recording. Then I started thinking, damn (*&%$£ expletive expunged), why had I not heard of, yep, now you know, or gotten any of the Diva Jazz Orchestra’s music before. That’s gonna change soon.

The album offers a plush uninhibited big band sound with the new and a whole bunch of future standards especially for big bands. Each tune is a marvellous treat to the ears and soul. I love every minute I listen to the album and recommend that you go get yourself a copy of it wherever you can.

I think I must whisper a word or two into the ears of the Groot (big) Makulu boss of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, Billy Domingo. What do you think?

Its  great that we in South Africa have our own brand new big band made upon some highly talented woman who are true masters of their own instruments playing incredible music. I was introduced to them at the recent SAJE Conference held in Cape Town at UCT, needless to say was reservedly blown away by their performance as they at the time, were only together for a couple of weeks.

My greatest hope is that when they record their debut album they will only include original music written and arranged by the very talented members of the band, however should they, gods forbid decide to any record of those ubiquitous covers they learned a collage, forget it rather look the great South African composers works to cover instead.

I know I’m going to be in trouble about what I’m going to say because there is a bit of a caveat about the bands moniker which is The Lady Day Big Band, whilst I am an uninhibited fan of Billie Holiday for me personally its not the right brand, I mean after all we are African and Capetonian to boot, nuff said on the subject for now, neh! I will take it up with the leaders of the project when I have them in the studio soon on my show.

Tutu Puoane – The Joni Mitchell Project Live (2017)

 Soul Factory Records – Distributor Sonic Rendezvous

I’ve been wanting to review this album for a while now but never got around to doing it, so sorry Tutu however it being Friday 13th July nice cuppa at hand so no more excuses as we enter another dark cold wet winters night. I sit in the dark lounge, the only illumination from the computer screen, utterly engrossed as I listen to the album, over and over, ok 3 times back to back, i simply was lost in the sounds i was hearing and blerry well forget to switch on the lights. No worries ’cause the Klutz in the Kitchen made a lekkerlicious (really tasty and nice) Bobotie (Baked Curried Mince with egg custard on top) Sarmi (sandwich) with a great cuppa char to wash it down. Run out of char so it had to darned instant cawfee, gonna have to do a victual run on the morrow, without any further thought I just continue to let my fingers glide across the keyboard and type the words streaming like tickertape from my psyche.

So moved am I as I keenly listen, totally engrossed to the sounds hailing from my speakers. I thought, jinna Eric why have you not listened to this full live recording masterpiece in all of its glory before. How dumb assed have I been? Don’t answer that. Ok then you don’t have to say it out loud, neh!.

Sjoe! I’ve been playing individual tracks from the album when programming my shows for ages now since its release in August of 2017, how much of an ass have I really been? Don’t answer that either, I got a good lawyer.

Tutu and Ewout

I must add this is one hell of an album with an incredible cast of musicians backing the beautiful voice that Tutu has been blessed with; each track is a bona fide paragon. The album offers an enthralling listening experience; seldom do I offer any praise for live recordings, however this is one of those very few that I do. It took me right into the concert hall, I truly felt part of the audience. With superlative vocals and out of this world arrangements as well as some truly impressive playing by each member of the excellent backing band led so ably from behind the piano by Ewout Pierreux Tutu’s hubby. This is an album worthy of pride of place in all serious jazz lovers collection. Better praise I cannot give for a live recording, well done to all concerned. I highly recommend The Joni Mitchell Project Live if you don’t have it as yet go get quickly.

The entire band is;

Tutu Puoane – voice, Tineke Postma – sax, Ewout Pierreux – piano, Clemens van der Feen – bass, Jasper Van Hulten – drums.

EDITORIAL SNIPPETS

Jazz from Africa is in a good place, there are more Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz artists releasing their own albums without assistance from record labels. What is most pleasing about this is many of those albums are of original works with fewer and fewer standards being included. Is this a good thing or not?

In my opinion it is indeed a very good thing because musicians are discovering their own voices and creativity without having to rely on “the standards”. These tunes when recorded are just boring copies of their current favourite artists version of those “jazz standards” often with any real thought and preparation to make and arrange exciting fresh versions of those “standards”. Like I said boring and it will be only family and really good friends will offer high praise for what that musician has recorded. Come now be honest, it has happened to you too.

At All Jazz Radio we make no judgment when we receive albums from musicians from the global village and all tracks from the albums we receive go into our playlist system, it is up to the individual presenters to choose and play those tracks during their shows, or not.

The caveat is however when writing a review about any album we expect the reviewer to be brutally honest and truthful with their opinion, whether they like or dislike the album. Most reviewers only write about the albums they like and disregard those they dislike. Publications, Blogs and Websites don’t publish negative reviews. Is it fair the artists hear nothing about their album from the people, radio stations, publications and bloggers they have sent their CD/LP to? Here at All Jazz Radio we tell it like it is, warts and all, no punches pulled. The only allowance we make is that before we publish, we speak frankly to the artist concerned directly either in person or on the phone about what will be published. Do you agree or disagree? Email us your thoughts, should we publish or not?

Our venerable old AJR person in charge, The Commander of The August Society of Crusty, Grumpy, yet very friendly, Folks Society and Founder of The Fraternal Order of Masticators and Connoisseurs of Squished Berry of the Vine Federation Sippers and our tame, friendly Klutz in the Kitchen continues to scour the interweb for a variety of simple quick, easy and tasty recipes that any Klutz can prepare and create surprising friends and family who had no idea of their secret hard learned new skill set. The Klutz in The Kitchenis then instructed to share the recipes from time to time he also invites guest, Chefs, Cooks, Restaurateurs, Home Cooks and cooking goody suppliers into the studio for informal and interesting chats from time to time.

LAUGH OF THE WEEK

Two musicians who haven’t seen each other for some time meet late one night in a jazz club. “Hey, man,” says one, “I hear you recorded a CD.”
“Yeah, that’s right, man,” replies the other. “I released it a few months ago.”
“How much have you sold?” asks the first.
“Ohh…just the house and the car.”

REASONS TO CELEBRATE

FRIDAY July 13, 2018 Today is international French Fries and Slap Chips Day!

French fries are a classic fast food treat and the perfect hamburger pairing. There are dozens of different ways to enjoy french fries. Whether you prefer your fries Cajun-style, sweet potato, crinkle-cut, curly, waffle, or covered in chili and cheese, today is the day to celebrate this world wide favourite.

The exact origin of French fries is unknown, however, one theory suggests that they date back to 17th century Belgium. The inhabitants of this region often cooked small fried fish to accompany their meals. When weather conditions made it too dangerous to go fishing, they cut up potatoes in long, thin strips (to resemble the fish) and fried them!

Today, French fries are a popular snack and side dish across the globe. Whether it’s “pommes frites” in France, “patatas fritas” in Spain, or “chips” in the UK, French fries are a worldwide favorite. Grab an order of fries from your favorite fast food restaurant to celebrate National French Fries Day!

July 13, 2018 is also International Embrace Your Geekness, Barbershop Music Appreciation, Puzzle Collector, Car Appreciation Day

July is International Grilling, Ice Cream and Hot Dog Month

Frank Leepa biography: brutal history, personal beefs and brilliant music

July 10,2018

“Sankomota was a name I’d been playing around with for a while. It came from the stories told by Mathabatha (Sexwale’s) grandmother. Sankomota is a kind of David-and-Goliath figure in Pedi folklore. It seemed appropriate somehow…”

To outsiders, music is a baffling business. Novelists regularly get it wrong, veering wildly between portraying the musician as a crazed monomaniac, and creating a character who’s about something else entirely with the instrument as a mere accessory after the fact – sometimes in the same book. But the practice of music is often equally baffling to those who live with and around musicians. Parents and family patriarchs often don’t see it as a job at all – but if it is one, it’s a disgraceful one. Some find it hard to believe that a band can really break up bitterly over whether a number is best played in A Flat or G, and must invent deeper, darker tensions. Others (who regularly change up their own jobs when career satisfaction diminishes) expect the same group of players to stick together for life, churning out the same repertoire simply to please them. Others again become adoring fans, who elevate their human musical heroes into supernaturally awesome Marvel ones, too good for any of their colleagues, spouses or friends…To outsiders, music is a baffling business.

Permission To Be Yourself by Seton Hawkins July 9, 2018

To follow the recordings of Cape Town-based vocalist and composer Nicky Schrire is to watch an artist evolve right in front of your eyes. With her 2012 debut Freedom Flight, Schrire demonstrated a supple soprano vocal technique and a knack for intelligent arrangements of unusual repertoire choices. Following it up the next year with Space and Time, she showed an uncanny ability to pare songs and performances down to their very essence, cutting away to reveal emotional truths in the pieces and singing them with an unvarnished and understated mastery. Additionally, canny listeners hearing each album also noted in Schrire a remarkable composer stepping to the forefront, as her albums began to allot more time to her original works.

By 2014, Schrire had released her third album To the Spring, marking a massive artistic evolution and shift, one that would ultimately find her leaving New York City for her home in Cape Town, transforming her performance style, and embracing a more Folk-driven aesthetic. Nevertheless, throughout these transitions, the core of Schrire’s singing remained. Brandishing a clear, pure sound and a delivery that avoids affectation or overly stylized tactics, Schrire delivers music of astonishing expressive depth.

Bob James To Release New Solo Album
August 31
will see the release of the new album from multiple-Grammy winner Bob James. Titled “Espresso” and released on the Evosound label, the album will be Bob James’s first studio recording in 12 years as leader and following up on his 2006 release Urban Flamingo. The release of this album also see’s Bob James’s return to the trio format he embraced as an up-and-coming artist.
When asked about his motivation for the album and why he choose the trio format he said “I wanted to do this as part of a trio — piano, bass and drums. “With Fourplay and in other larger settings, I loved that I could solo and then kind of disappear into the setting to accompany other soloists. To play in a trio requires a different level of commitment, with the piano being much more prominent. You need perhaps a greater degree of optimism and bravery. That was how I felt when I first got into music. Espresso is my attempt to recapture that.”
Though busy since 2006 an array of projects, ranging from touring and recording with the all-star contemporary jazz ensemble Fourplay to collaborations with David Sanborn, Keiko Matsui and other innovators, James hasn’t felt the need to be in the spotlight as a solo performer – until now.
Bob James is best known as one of the stalwarts of the 1970′s contemporary jazz fusion scene collaborating with Earl Klugh, Grover Washington Jr and David Sanborn to name just a few. While recording his album, Grand Piano Canyon, in 1990, James reunited with longtime friend, drummer Harvey Mason, Jr. It would also be the first time he would work with guitarist Lee Ritenour, and bassist Nathan East. This meeting would be the start of something substantial as these early sessions ignited a spark that would become the band known as Fourplay. This band would be at the center of Bob’s activities until the present.
Inspiration for the Espresso album stems from a week-long engagement with sensational young bassist Michael Palazzolo and the respected veteran drummer Billy Kilson at the Blue Note last October. The musicians felt an immediate chemistry as they tackled standard repertoire as well as new James originals. Audiences sensed it too. “Soon everybody there was encouraging me to have the guts to jump in there and do this,” James recalls.
Two months later, the group reconvened at Bragg Street Studios in Van Nuys, California. In just one day James, Palazzo and Kilson laid down the varied tracks that comprise Espresso. Two covers were on the list: an ear-opening reconfiguration of Fats Waller’s “Ain’t Misbehavin” and an equally fresh perspective on “Mr. Magic” (which James had arranged and conducted on the 1975 Grover Washington session) and a stream of original material.
The rest of the tunes, penned by James, reflect the same inventiveness and musical fluency that persuaded Quincy Jones to become his mentor and champion back in 1963. His expressiveness through both writing and performance permeates the rocking minor-key blues of “Bulgogi,” the definitive cool jazz of “Topside, ” the funk strut of “Submarine, ” the whispered beauty of “Promenade, ” the turbulent, more complex yet supremely listenable “Mojito Ride” and every other moment on Espresso.
“Submarine” the first single to be released, is a great example of James’ classic sound paying tribute to 1974’s “Nautilus”, while perfectly blending in the fresh, complex and rich textures of Espresso

Al Di Meola Receives Honorary Doctorate at Berklee’s campus in Valencia
Berklee Provost Larry Simpson presented an honorary doctor of music degree today to legendary jazz, fusion, and world music guitarist, composer, bandleader, and producer Al Di Meola during the commencement ceremony for the master’s degree programs at Berklee’s campus in Valencia, Spain. Di Meola also performed as a special guest at the commencement concert at the City of Arts and Sciences on Saturday, which drew thousands of attendees.
Over a career that has spanned more than four decades, Di Meola has recorded more than 30 solo albums, including Land of the Midnight Sun, his 1976 debut; Elegant Gypsy, which hit the Top 5 on Billboard’s jazz albums chart in 1977; and 1978’s Casino. He has also appeared as a guest artist on over 50 recordings. At 19, after attending Berklee, Di Meola joined Chick Corea’s pioneering jazz fusion group Return to Forever. He recorded three albums with them, hitting the Top 40 on Billboard’s pop albums chart. He later collaborated with John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucía. The guitar trio’s live album Friday Night in San Francisco sold 7 million copies.
“Collaborations with other players outside of your realm can ignite a new frontier, ” Di Meola advised the graduates, reflecting on his time with Return to Forever and recording with de Lucía at Electric Lady Studios. He also shared his experience with tango master Astor Piazzolla. “Getting to know him as a friend began a very important chapter of my life as a composer. It was the introduction to his music that I sensed had the right ingredients to touch the heart, and at the same time challenge me intellectually as a player, and a listener. That was, still is, my goal and what I set out to do.”
“As much as music lessons were very important at the beginning, so were the vast amount of concerts and every music category I was fortunate enough to choose from, having had the proximity to New York City during the early seventies. For me, it was the value of being able to express deeper emotions with an instrument than with words. What would life be without music, as well as all the other forms of artistic expression, I often ponder.”
To the graduates, he added, “I commend all of your dedication and the hard work you have spent during your school years, and I can imagine that many of you will go way beyond your comfort zone. In the process you will quite naturally mature as a musician.”
One of the inventors of jazz-rock fusion, Di Meola also explored Mediterranean cultures and acoustic genres like flamenco, getting closer to world music and modern Latin styles, while further expanding his horizons with the electronic side of jazz. The guitar legend has begun a new chapter in his prolific career with the release of his latest album Opus.
At the commencement ceremony, 131 graduates from more than 30 nations received master of music degrees in music production, technology, and innovation; scoring for film, television, and video games; and contemporary performance with a concentration in production; or master of arts degrees in global entertainment and music business.
“You are at the vanguard of contemporary music education, and each one of you has developed a skill set, ” said Simpson, addressing the graduates. “Some of you may be feeling a bit headstrong; some of you might not be quite sure what’s next. Life awaits you and you will have to make choices…Congratulations on your achievement today, we await the magic that you will create.”
Berklee’s honorary doctorate recipients are recognized for their achievements and influences in music, and for their enduring contributions to American and international culture. Past recipients include Duke Ellington (the first, in 1971), Aretha Franklin, Dizzy Gillespie, Quincy Jones, Smokey Robinson, Steven Tyler, Loretta Lynn, Juan Luis Guerra, Annie Lennox, Paco de Lucia, Carole King, Willie Nelson, George Clinton, Rita Moreno, Lionel Richie, and A. R. Rahman. Honorary doctorates have previously been awarded at the Valencia campus to Eddie Gómez (2013), Plácido Domingo (2014), Emilio Aragón (2016) and John McLaughlin (2017).

AN OPTIONAL EXTRA QUOTE FOR THE WEEK

“Writing is a question of finding a certain rhythm. I compare it to the rhythms of jazz. Much of the time life is a sort of rhythmic progression of three characters. If one tells oneself that life is like that, one feels it less arbitrary.”  Francoise Sagan (1935-2004) French playwright, novelist and screenwriter.

MR Project – Journey (2018)

Mike Rossi’s MRP Album Cover Journey

I’ve known Mike Rossi for quite a number of years now and have played and reviewed his albums over those years. When I received this album and gave a quick run through scan of the all of tracks I knew there was something special about what I was hearing. I decided to can what I had planned and set about without delay, to listen carefully to the entire album with all attention. I listened to the over the next four or so hours and the called Mike to come over for an interview during my show. We arranged a time and the day; I the intervening period I listened to the album back to a number of more times and again was not disappointed. We did the interview and had a great time in the studio chatting.

This is one of the best albums releases this year to my way of thinking, and is intensely personal for Mike, with each track holding a very special place in Mr Rossi’s heart. I believe it reflects a very personal voyage that has brought him this point in his chosen profession. It is like everything has come together, you know, right time and right place with the apposite people to create an enormously beautiful work that will stand the test of time, which is somewhat special and a must have for real jazz lovers.

Track and player listing;

  1. Got a Match?(For Chick Corea) with Marco Maritz, William Haubrich, Andrew Ford, Wesley Rustin and Kevin Gibson. Mike Rossi, tenor sax.
  2. Big Sax(for Rampone & Cazzani) w/ Marco Maritz, William Haubrich, Andrew Ford, Wesley Rustin and Kevin Gibson. M. Rossi, altello sax.
  3. Ciao Roma, Don’t say Lazio!(For Susanna Stivali) w/ Andrew Ford, Wesley Rustin and Kevin Gibson. M. Rossi alto flute & tenor sax.
  4. Star Dust(For Mom; Janet Christina Sansonetti Rossi); with Andrew Ford. M. Rossi, alto sax.
  5. KwaZulu Zam Sam(For Kwazulu-Natal) w/ Marco Maritz, William Haubrich, Andrew Ford, Wesley Rustin and Kevin Gibson. M. Rossi alto sax.
  6. Alpe Camasca, Italy(For Maria Rita Zolla) w/ Marco Maritz, William Haubrich, Andrew Ford, Wesley Rustin and Kevin Gibson. M. Rossi, clarinet, tenor & soprano sax.
  7. Greasy Pan Blues(For those unexpected “food” moments) w/ Marco Maritz, William Haubrich, Andrew Ford, Wesley Rustin and Kevin Gibson. M. Rossi sax.
  8. Land of Make Believe(For Chuck Mangione) w/ Andrew Ford, Wesley Rustin and Kevin Gibson. M. Rossi, flute, alto flute, piccolo.
  9. Shiny Stockings(For Count Basie) w/ Andrew Ford, Wesley Rustin and Kevin Gibson. M. Rossi clarinet.
  • Cucciulitti-Snails of Fermo(fFor Umberto & Maria Bufalini) w/ William Haubrich, Andrew Ford, Wesley Rustin and Kevin Gibson. M. Rossi baritone sax.
  • Hilda(For friends in Norway & “Hildas” everywhere); w/ Andrew Ford. M. Rossi soprano sax.
  • Mra (For South Africa & Diane Rossi) w/ Marco Maritz, William Haubrich, Andrew Ford, Wesley Rustin and Kevin Gibson. M. Rossi tenor sax.

    Mike Rossi

Each track is a bona fide gem and tells the story in a way which even I can understand. As can be seen the musicians featured through this journey have worked with Mike for years and they show the respect they have for him through their playing. Thank you for sharing those personal moments from your life and passion with me as a listener and jazz lover it is truly appreciated. This album is going to take a lot to beat, and BTW I love the album cover, but Mike I don’t envy you the next time you head into the studio.

Media is in a constant and accelerating state of disruption, as digital content changes the way we produce, distribute and consume entertainment and information.

Jazz radio, artists, promoters, and labels can either be left behind or they can acknowledge the changing landscape … and even take advantage of it!

The 2018 JazzWeek Summit will be tightly focused on creating success in this digital era.

To set the stage for our presentations and panels, JazzWeek is sponsoring detailed surveys and research during the spring and early summer of 2018 to gather economic, artistic, and technological data from radio and the recording industry to provide the basis for this year’s panels and to help us determine our next steps.

Our goals for this year’s Summit are to understand where we are now, take stock of the challenges we face, and to chart a course forward.

Attendance is strictly limited to a maximum of 80 people, so register early to reserve your space!

Some may remember that Renee Lee performed at the Grahamstown Festival and the then Green Dolphin with Dave Young, Richard Ring and others some years ago.

Vocalist Ranee Lee

Here is a Q&A with Ranee who seeks to honour the ‘Dark Divas’ of jazz who inspired her.She also performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival this year

Ranee Lee has been an integral part of the Canadian jazz scene since she arrived in Montreal in 1970 from her native Brooklyn, New York.

She was a multi-instrumentalist whose voice seemed to be her most proficient and mellifluous axe. Her albums on Montreal’s Justin Time label are considered classics.

Nicole Mitchell’s Downbeat award should bring her to South Africa

The Downbeat Critics Awards are out and South Africans can enjoy a slightly smug feeling. We heard the Vijay Iyer sextet before they scored that award for Far From Over, in March at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival. It was a joy – but I suppose it would be repetitive to ask that Iyer be invited back?

The D.A.J.O (Darryl Andrews Jazz Orchestra) album Cape Town (2017)

D.A.J.O (Darryl Andrews Jazz Orchestra) Cape Town (2017) Album Cover

CD Review – By Eric Alan – The D.A.J.O (Darryl Andrews Jazz Orchestra) album Cape Town (2017)

I’ve really been fortunate throughout my broadcast career to meet and interact with so many great musicians from the entire global village, especially those from my own hometown and one such is Guitarist, Teacher, Conductor, Bandleader, Composer and Arranger Darryl Andrews. He is

closing in on retirement from the renowned South African College of Music, UCT’s Jazz Studies Program.

It is very pleasing to be able to write this review of his album, Cape Town by the D.A. Jazz Orchestra, whichhas finally been released. The most exciting aspect of this album is apart from a few of his own compositions it features the music of other equally well known Cape Town composers which include The Late Winston Mankunku Ngozi, The Late Errol Dyers, Professor Mike Campbell, Alvin Dyers and naturally Darryl Andrews too.

Bandleader Guitarist, Composer, Conductor, Producer and Teacher Darryl Andrews

The band includes some of his students and friends and in the woodwind section are alto-saxophone and clarinet players Justin Bellairs and Evan Froud, the tenor saxes are played by Zeke Le Grange and Sisonke Xonti, with baritone saxophonist Georgia Jones, The horn section comprises of: on trumpet and flugelhorn Lorenzo Blignaut and Marcelle Adams with Robin Fassie-Kok, and the trombonists includes Justin Sasman, Ryan van der Rheede, Kelly Bell and Ryan Kierman. The rhythm section includes pianist Andrew Ford with acoustic and electric bassist Stephen De Souza and drummer Lumanyno Unity Mzi.

The really heavy-duty work of conducting, composing, transcribing and arranging falling Darryl’s broad shoulders, whilst guest players include Prof Mike Campbell, and both of the Dyers brothers, as do vibraphonist Bronwen Clacherty and flautist Bridget Rene. Darryl is quoted as saying, “Jazz is always changing, and it evolves as we speak. We identified with it, being from oppressed people. Look what jazz was born out of, one of the greatest human atrocities – slavery.” This can be heard in countless composers works since the birth of jazz.

The album as a whole offers a new perspective to what an African Big Band when arranging and transcribing of the original works by Winston Mankunku Ngozi, Errol Dyers, Mike Campbell and Alvin Dyers. Giving a fresh new look at the iconic pieces chosen for the album. Darryl’s own compositions can certainly take pride of place alongside these classics many of which I’ve not heard before and again gives great pleasure to hear and know that his work will finally be heard by jazz lovers, specifically big band aficionados. More power to composing and recording more original material Mr Andrews don’t let us wait for your next offering too long, no matter the bands configuration.

I must add that I rate this album very highly. 4.8 Stars  out of 5 – This is an album that must be part of any self-respecting jazz lovers collection.

It was a challenge. Today we have the security and confidence of two decades of living up to the promises we make annually to jazz lovers.”
Thulani Sibeko, Standard Bank’s Chief Marketing Officer, said they have a clear sense of the growth of the festival and what still needs to be achieved. “We, as the headline sponsor, are looking forward to providing unparalleled access to the best jazz music in the world through our expertly curated programme and line-up. We are also excited to be able to contribute to the development of our cultural economy. The jobs created annually by the festival, and the education and training opportunities for young people on and off the stage, are all part of one vision that underpins what we mean by Joy, in Standard Bank Joy of Jazz.”
The festival, she added, made a deep social and impact by improving the lives of many young people through training and other opportunities. “We are proud to continue to partner with T-Musicman on a brand that is so proudly African and showcases a wide range of our talent from across the continent, while at the same time welcoming international talent to our shores.”

The most exciting aspect of this album is apart from a few of his own compositions it features the music of other equally well known Cape Town composers which include The Late Winston Mankunku Ngozi, The Late Errol Dyers, Professor Mike Campbell and Alvin Dyers.

The band includes some of his students and friends and in the woodwind section are alto-saxophone and clarinet players Justin Bellairs and Evan Froud, the tenor saxs are played by Zeke Le Grange and Sisonke Xonti, with bariti saxophonist Georgia Jones, The horn section comprises of: on trumpet and flugelhorn Lorenzo Blignaut and Marcelle Adams with Robin Fassie-Kok, and the trombonists includes Justin Sasman, Ryan van der Rheede, Kelly Bell and Ryan Kierman. The rhythm section includes pianist Andrew Ford with acoustic and electric bassist Stephen De Souza and drummer Lumanyno Unity Mzi.

The really heavy-duty work of conducting, composing, transcribing and arranging falling Darryl’s broad shoulders, whilst guest players include Prof Mike Campbell, and both of the Dyers brothers, as do vibraphonist Bronwen Clacherty and flautist Bridget Rene. Darryl is quoted as saying, “Jazz is always changing, and it evolves as we speak. We identified with it, being from oppressed people. Look what jazz was born out of, one of the greatest human atrocities – slavery.” This can be heard in countless composers works since the birth of jazz.

The album as a whole offers a new perspective to what an African Big Band when arranging and transcribing of the original works by Winston Mankunku Ngozi, Errol Dyers, Mike Campbell and Alvin Dyers. Giving a fresh new look at the iconic pieces chosen for the album. Darryl’s own compositions can certainly take pride of place alongside these classics many of which I’ve not heard before and again gives great pleasure to hear and know that his work will finally be heard by jazz lovers, specifically big band aficionados. More power to composing and recording more original material Mr Andrews don’t let us wait for your next offering too long, no matter the bands confiuration.

I must add that I rate this album very highly. 4.8 Stars – This is an album that must be part of any selfrespecting jazz lovers collection.

Another Quote of the Week

“Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Jazz flows like water. Jazz never seems to begin or end. Jazz isn’t methodical, but jazz isn’t messy either. Jazz is a conversation, a give and take. Jazz is the connection and communication between musicians. Jazz is abandon.” Nat Wolff

CD ReviewBrian Charette Groovin’ With Big G

Review by DAN BILAWSKY of All About Jazz Website July 4, 2018
Groovin’ With Big G was destined to come about. When a young Brian Charette was cutting his teeth on jazz piano gigs in his home state of Connecticut in the early ’90s, he wound up working dates with drummer George Coleman Jr. The two struck up a friendship, and Coleman’s encouragement helped Charette make the leap to New York a few years later. Coleman even let the budding pianist crash in his rehearsal studio for a spell.

Here’s an optional extra Quote of the Week

We don’t live in a jazz world, unfortunately. I think if I had lived in a jazz world, I would have done OK. I’m not sure I would have done great. I’m a lover of jazz music, so I would have been happy, don’t get me wrong. I go to jazz concerts like the biggest jazz fan in world. The drag is that I don’t play jazz for a living. George Benson

  • JazzWeek Summit 2018 August 9-10, 2018 Hotel De Anza, San Jose – California Creating Jazz Radio Success in the Digital Era

Media is in a constant and accelerating state of disruption, as digital content changes the way we produce, distribute and consume entertainment and information.

Jazz radio, artists, promoters, and labels can either be left behind or they can acknowledge the changing landscape … and even take advantage of it!

The 2018 JazzWeek Summit will be tightly focused on creating success in this digital era.

To set the stage for our presentations and panels, JazzWeek is sponsoring detailed surveys and research during the spring and early summer of 2018 to gather economic, artistic, and technological data from radio and the recording industry to provide the basis for this year’s panels and to help us determine our next steps.

Our goals for this year’s Summit are to understand where we are now, take stock of the challenges we face, and to chart a course forward.

Attendance is strictly limited to a maximum of 80 people, so register earlyto reserve your space!

Some may remember that Renee Lee performed at the Grahamstown Festival and the then Green Dolphin with Dave Young, Richard Ring and others some years ago.

Here is a Q&A with Ranee who seeks to honour the ‘Dark Divas’ of jazz who inspired her.She also performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival this year

Ranee Lee has been an integral part of the Canadian jazz scene since she arrived in Montreal in 1970 from her native Brooklyn, New York.

She was a multi-instrumentalist whose voice seemed to be her most proficient and mellifluous axe. Her albums on Montreal’s Justin Time label are considered classics.

DON’T MISS THIS SUNDAY’S PERFORMANCE AT THE OLYMPIA Café Kalk Bay

Guy Buttery with Kanada Narahari on the sitar, this Sunday at the Olympia

With a meeting of two very distinct creative minds united by their mutual curiosity in each other’s diverse musical worlds, Guy Buttery and Kanada Narahari bring India even closer to its well established home in South Africa. In production for over 6 months, the fusing of music from both of these rich and varied musical backgrounds is rooted in Guy and Kanada’s progressive exploration of these worlds, bridging the gap, as well as re-imagining the realms existing between Africa and India. These two virtuosi’s will be bringing this collaboration to Cape Town for the first time with concerts in the city centre as well in the outlying regions and on the Peninsula.

SHARKS LOVE JAZZ

Here’s an interesting story sent to us by Gwen Ansell,

Sharks love jazz but are stumped by classical, say scientists and not it’s got nothing to do with the natal rugby team, click and read.

 

*******************************************

THE TUNE RECREATION COMMITTEE PRESENTS THE FUTURE IS NOW SADC TOUR – MAY 2018

SAMA nominated Jazz Collective, The Tune Recreation Committee’s

(TRC) international debut is in the form of a tour entitled The Future Is Now. This multi-faceted presentation in Swaziland, Mozambique and South Africa will focus on collaboration and musical exchange with other artists. In each territory the TRC will present works in various forms and guises with local musicians and artists accompanied by exhibitions and performances at every stop of the way.

The Future Is Now Tour also presents an amazing opportunity for the TRC to perform for a new ever-growing audience demographic in the SADC region. By bringing the best of what the TRC has to offer, The Tour is a springboard towards building and strengthening intercultural dialogue in the region.

The Album:

The SAMA nominated album Voices Of Our Vision, by the ensemble was the only independent South African album to be ranked as one of top releases of 2017by The New York Times: “…this alliance of young South African musicians delves into the country’s syncretic cultural heritage — then ventures beyond. You hear Balkan folk, American funk, West African high life, and South African free jazz. Most of all, you hear five bristling improvisers dancing together, modelling a kind of thoughtful communion”.

“The T.R.C. (its name is a sidelong reference to the post-apartheid Truth and Reconciliation Commission) avoids the most common pitfalls in South African jazz: It’s not beholden to sunny Cape Town traditionalism, and it doesn’t emulate any specific form of American jazz.” New York Times

The TRC features Clement Benny on drums, Nicholas Williams on bass, Reza Khota on guitar, Mandla Mlangeni on trumpet. The unit has performed to rousing applause at the 18th annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival. The group takes original tunes and reinvents nods from their influences to embracing vibrant underground music scene of drum and bass to Balkanology. Fusing imported sounds and exporting to their own flavour, either going into a Ghoema -tinged feel or just improvising around the melody. TRC founder, Mandla Mlangeni describes the sound as “the playground for the interrogation, assimilation and extended extemporization from the canon of South African jazz heritage

The Tour

Tune Recreation Committee’s The Future Is Now accompanied by workshops is a dissemination of a dialogue that is severely underrepresented in the musical landscape and the broader context of Southern Africa. Specifically relating to several African music art forms within the realm of jazz and indigenous music, which share common traits in all regions.

The focus of the endeavour is one that aims to build a documented heritage resource that challenges notions of colonial bias and seeks to expand a narrative of musicians, composers and artists through their own perspectives.

“Ours is an attempt to create a sustainable platform and network for composers and musicians in a pairing of creative partnerships and collaborations with artists residing within the SADC region”, says Mandla Mlangeni.

TRC’s The Future Is Now : SADC Tour is supported by Concerts SA and the ANT Funding Grant from Pro Helvetia Johannesburg financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).

Haddock Chowder recipe

The Rambling Words, Wisdom & Wit, if any, of a Self-Confessed & totally confused self taught Klutz In The Kitchen and his Recipe of the Week – Begged, borrowed and stolen from recipe web sites around the global village.

The Klutz has become a bit of a nag, ‘cause he’s champing at the bit to make his renowned Mutton Tomato Breedie once again, but he can’t because he made two huge pots last week, Aunty Sarah’s world Famous Pea and Bacon bits Soup and Beef ‘n Potato Curry which we’ve not been able to finish as yet, still go loads left over, but finish it we will ‘cause it just so damned lekkerlisious. Yesterday we had the Curry so to day it’s Aunty Sarah’s world Famous Pea and Bacon bits Soup, which may please the Klutz and shut him up for a while, we hope.

Jinne, food prices just keep skyrocketing and the VAT increase has not helped at all. Worst of all we don’t see decent increases for social pensioners or pensioners at all, nor do se see decent salary increases. How does one survive in this day and age, huh! The rich just keep on getting richer and us working class folk must just keep trying to survive.

Something that has become something of a major pet hate is this thing by a supermarket chain offering a “free discount/money back guarantee” on the bottom of the till slip on ones next visit to their stores. It is pretty much a con as far as I’m concerned, not so? The kind cashier generally reminds one not to forget to bring the till slip back on ones next visit to get the “free discount/money back guarantee” saving at the bottom of the till slip.

Free really? However this is the major flaw for most shoppers, this “free discount/money back guarantee” thing how many shoppers really bring the slip back, and that’s the rub. I for one never know when I’m next going to visit the store and never have those pesky till slips on me. It’s a clever ploy to manipulate us shoppers back into their clutches.

I did speak to a local regional manager about my misgivings and he explained of the philosophy, which in reality is to simply to get feet through the door in the face of their opposition. Ok, that may be good for them because us poor sap’s just keep falling for these tricks. What is the real, true value of this kind of chicanery to the shopper? Not much at all me think’s. How many of us keep those till slips handy. I believe like most price conscious pensioners and shoppers, check the weekly pamphlets that accompany our local knock and drop newspapers assiduously for where we’ll find the best special’s available. I’d for one would rather see direct discounts applied to the products rather than the wishy washy wool over the eyes “free discount/money back guarantee”. What do say you, let us know your views on the, as I believe, rather dubious practice.

************************************

My next gripe is the plastic carrier bag, which we shoppers pay for, where does the money spent on those bag go? Can the plastic bags I say or give me the option of paper carrier bags instead. What do you think? This is a debate for another day.

It is not often that the Klutz makes a fish dish for dinner; now, I do really enjoy yummolicious Haddock Mornay from time to time so this is our for this week’s, that is quite easy and simple.

Try this Haddock Chowder recipe that our splendid Klutz found on the Spar Website. I must agree it look lekkerlicious and believe it will be very tasty, best of all it’s a very quick ‘n easy recipe that any Klutz can cook up a storm. Go get the stuff to make it today. It will surprise the recipient of you invite to dinner. We hope you’ll enjoy this recipe with a fine white Pinotage.
