All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1An AJR Blog Supreme1Still the winter gods persist with the cold, overcast weather in the African Jazz Capital, but we remain very upbeat despite the drought conditions in our area of paradise. Summer is coming that we are sure of and are really looking forward to. It the exchange rate that is a major problem now, I mean very favourable for visitors to our fair shore and crazy fur us to travel out of the country, so I’d like to welcome all would are planning their vacations to include South Africa, moreover to The City of Cape Town, the Mother City, make your plans today, it’s going to bed a good holiday.

Took Mom and Uncle Jimmy to the country cousins on Sunday, invited for lunch we were twas a prelude to Moms 89th birthday on Wednesday, Pilotage and beer flowing, rugby and foody things discussed around the table lots of fun was had by all. The Kluze in the Kitchen really enjoyed the meal, mainly ‘cause he had a cooking day off, a lekkerlicious salad starter followed by a delicious Venison meatloaf with vegetables and rice and mushroom sauce with a creamy pie for dessert then relaxing on the patio with a cheese platter and finishing off homemade Limoncello. Must say Mom enjoyed very much now the pressure is on to find a suitable place to take her for lunch on Wednesday in the Rondebosch, Claremont, Kenilworth area. Got any suggestions?

Here’s some great new and always exciting to here about a new release by a great vocalist.

Giacomo Gates Celebrates The Release of His New CD “Everything is Cool”

Gates approaches jazz singing with a showman’s poise and an aficionado’s zeal. With his deep, cognac baritone and his vintage-hipster lexicon, his phrasing and his bearing, he upholds a distinctly masculine ideal of deceptively easy nonchalance. Gates is known as the modern day heir to Eddie Jefferson, the godfather of vocalese. Here he uses the style sparingly, but to great advantage. never showboating by using the challenging technique. Backed by his go-to pianist, John di Martino and guitarist Tony Lombardozzi leading the rhythm section and Grant Stewart out in front on saxophone, Giacomo sings and swings his way through a dozen tunes – some familiar favourites, some rarely heard gems. He may be soft and subtle or he may be hip and humorous but one thing Giacomo Gates is not, is predictable.

So you’re a Hummus and a beer fan are you? Well now the good news is that you can indulge in both all at one time, in a glasss. An Israeli brewery, the Meadan Craft Brewing is now making Meadan Chickpea Malt Ale. Why you may ask? They wanted to make a kosher-for-Passover gluten-free beer, and did, so now hummus fans can rejoice by raising a glass of the favourite food.

Today is National Apple Betty Day in America!

Celebrate today, hey any apple pie is good any day, but The Klutz In The Kitchen thinks that the date should be changed to the 7th October, why you ask, it’s the head hocho’s Moms birthday on that day and here name happens to ne Betty see. Any how the Betty is a crustless apple pie seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar. An apple brown betty is a common variation, which includes layers of sweetened breadcrumbs.

This classic American dessert dates back to the colonial period and probably evolved from the traditional English bread pudding. The name “brown betty” first appeared in print in 1864 when it was mentioned in a Yale Literary Magazine article.

In honour of National Apple Betty Day, bake your own version of this scrumptious dessert and top it with lemon sauce, ice cream, or whip cream. Yum!

October 5, 2015 is also Simchat Torah, World Habitat Day

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Chili Month, Dessert Month, Pasta Month, Roller Skating Month, and Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month

This week is Walk Your Dog Week, World Space Week, and Fire Prevention Week

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – 02 October 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1An AJR BLOG SUPREME copy

The weather gods are really very fickle, gorgeous cloudless sky in the African Jazz Capital, The Mother City of Cape Town, though chilly morning, but a shorts and flip-flops day for sure. At least the washing will get dry too.

The second day of October, sjoe, and is birthday celebration month of my Mom and Late sister Jenny would have be 62 and Mom turns 88 this month. Now starting to plan where we going to celebrate, Last year I took her and her Brother to the Hussar for lunch. Both enjoyed the meal and celebration there. Now, here’s the question do we return there again this year or find a new place to go to. Got any suggestions?

This year has been a really storming year so far, musically speaking, we received so many great new album by a veritable galaxy of Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz stars it’s going to be very difficult to choose my Top 50 album releases of 2015, and there’s still another three months left to make the right choices, but there are still many more to be released.

Jazz Music LogoI must acknowledge the people who have kept us up to date with all those new albums also introducing us the so many new artists and important bio information over the past years. In alphabetical order big thanks go to the following;

Ann Braithwaite, Brian Hurst, Cindy Budd, Dawn De Blaze, Jim Eigo, Joshua Ellman, Kari Gaffney, Kate Smith, Katherine Growdon, Kenny Tlale, Lisa Reedy, Lynda A. Weingartz, Mark Rini, Michael Carlson, Natty Goehring, Richard Anton and Shaunna Machosky, plus all of the independent musicians who have contacted and sent us the albums, both locally and internationally.

Klutz in the Kitchen

Klutz in the Kitchen

The Klutz In The Kitchen is gearing up to fire up his old slow cooker, which he has finally reclaimed from his Mom, who he discovered has never used it since he loaned it to her 30 or so years ago, been gathering dust in the back of one of her kitchen cupboards, see and saves buying a new one. Now cleaned up and looking like brand new, he is eager to get going, but he is looking for recipes to use and the first is a really good recipe for Lamb Shanks. Now, if you can please help, please send your Slow Cooker recipe to The Klutz In The Kitchen soonest. Looking forward the hearing from you.

I discovered another ex South African who lives in the UK and am trying to get his CD to put on our play list soon. Here is his bio taken from his website;

Philip Clouts Quartet UmoyaPhilip Clouts was born in South Africa and brought to Britain as a baby. His father, the poet Sydney Clouts, was a great fan of South African music and throughout Philip’s childhood the house resounded to the strains of Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba and township jazz. It was the pianists who particularly caught Philip’s ear, especially Abdullah Ibrahim and Chris McGregor, and that’s where it all started.

Philip Clouts is founder member, composer and pianist in Zubop ‘that spirited, hugely enjoyable jazz outfit, which takes the whole world of music as its home territory’ (The Observer). 4 CDs have been released on 33 Records and performances have been in a wide variety of venues and festivals in the UK and Europe, including WOMAD, Glastonbury, Berlin Worldbeat Festival, Brewery Arts Centre, Exeter Phoenix, Frankfurt Sinkkasten, and London Vortex.

Zubop developed into ZubopGambia, collaboration with BBC World Music award winner Juldeh Camara and other West African master musicians, which has done two major UK tours and headlined at festivals. A concert at Ronnie Scott’s, London, where they “managed to raise the roof” (Roots magazine) was released as a live album.

Other work has included playing with virtuoso folk fiddler Chris Haigh in Klezmania, a group playing Klezmer music with elements of jazz improvisation, and touring with singer Gary Howard of the Flying Pickets.

Philip has released a trio CD of his compositions entitled “South “which was praised in Jazz UK as “An enormously enjoyable set of accessible but distinctive originals. Like the compositions, Clouts’ solos are thoughtful and persuasively structured”

Since 2007 the Philip Clouts Quartet has been a major focus of his composing and playing.

The new CD Umoya (titled from the Zulu word for life force), features rising star Samuel Eagles on sax and is one of the first wave of releases on the new jazz imprint from prestigious classical label Odradek Records.

On this album, Clouts’ African inspirations extend beyond Cape jazz to Gnawa music and Afrobeat, and further to pan-European folksong, soul-jazz and even drum ‘n’ bass. Joined by saxophonist Samuel Eagles, bassist Alex Keen and Yamaha Jazz Scholarship-winning drummer Dave Ingamells, he brings his musical journey alive with superb musicianship and infectious vigour.

“Eagles’ phrasing lends itself perfectly to the immediacy of Clouts’ melodic writing, and to the conversational nature of the group as a whole…the end result is one of attractiveness with the added headiness of exotic flavours and joyous, dancing rhythms.”  Rob Adams

The album release will coincide with a tour of England and Scotland including dates at Bridport Arts Centre (23 Oct) the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh (26 Oct), The Blue Lamp, Aberdeen (29 Oct) the Capstone Theatre, Liverpool (30 Oct) and a London album launch at Café Posk on Saturday 17 October.

Fried Scallops DayFried ScallopsA scallop is a type of marine mollusc in the Pectindae family. Scallops are typically two to five inches in size and can swim by rapidly opening and closing their shells. The muscle used for this activity is the only part of the animal that we eat.

Scallops are a highly prized seafood delicacy, known for their delectable taste and the variety of ways in which they can be prepared. In Japan, for example, scallops are served in soups or prepared as sushi. In Western cultures, scallops are usually breaded, deep-fried, or sautéed in butter.

To celebrate Fried Scallop Day, enjoy some delicious fried scallops from your local seafood restaurant. Bon appétit!

National Diversity DayOctober 2, 2015 is also Diversity Day

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – Monday 21th September 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1An AJR BLOG SUPREME copyIt was a hell of a game, so the Nation is in mourning at the stupendous loss by the Springboks against the Japanese on Saturday and blame is being cast around by one and all. Enough I say, it was the first game of the Rugby World Cup, other big teams have done the same against the so called minnows of the rugby world. Well done to Japan, they had done their homework. Coach Eddie Jones orchestrated his charges into a giant killing machine. The Japanese team played like world-beaters throughout the entire game totally stunning the Bokke. Earlier in the week in discussions about the Rugby World Cup I had said that we should not underestimate the Japanese with, in my estimation, Eddie Jones is one of the most underestimated coaches in World Rugby today. Once again congratulations to Eddie and his team. I do believe that the Japanese must be watched and will bring bigger surprises during the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Does this mean I’m no longer going to support our boy’s in the coming games HELL NO.

The Klutz in the Kitchen is still sulking and looking quite pissed off since the loss, he’s really taken it very badly, so I’ve banished him to the kitchen, again and told him to cook off his disappointment, don’t know what he’s going to come up with today, we’ll see later. Must say the Kramenaatjies he made over the weekend were very yummolicious. At lest he’s also got National Braai Day to preoccupy him too.

Yep, we’ve got National Braai (Barbeque) Day to look forward to on Thursday 24th September, which will sort out all thoughts of rugby doom and gloom, it’s only the start of the campaign.

The phrase ‘first-call trumpeter’ could have been invented for Noel Langley. He is a ubiquitous presence and sound in top-flight bands and ensembles (the list is simply vast) Until now, he has never led a group in a live concert in his own name. The first public performance of his composition “Edentide” at the Cockpit is therefore a big occasion. He explained the background to Sebastian Scotney:

Fred Wesley and the New JBs in SA for three city tour

After a sold-out performance in 2014, world-renowned American trombonist Fred Wesley, along with his band the New JBs, will return to South Africa.

Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg are in for a unique experience with one of the forefathers of funk who has been sampled by multitudes of artists including Janet Jackson and Nas.

Fred Wesley worked with James Brown from 1968-1975 as music director and trombonist. The primary composer for Brown’s backing band the JBs, Wesley contributed the unique elements that define and make up the enduring musical form that is funk. This respected composer, arranger, musicologist, author and educator is a veteran of the Count Basie Orchestra. His impressive list of musicians he has worked with includes heavyweights such as Ray Charles, Pancho Sanchez, Van Morrison, Usher and his close friends Pee Wee Ellis and Maceo Parker.

National Heritage:Braai (Barbeque) DayIt’s National Heritage/Braai (Barbeque) Day on Thursday 24th September. A national holiday in South Africa, so get the meat ready, make sure the wood is dry and all braai utensils are at the ready. Oh! Almost forgot make sure the beer is chilled and that there Pinotage enough in stock, it’s gonna be a good one.

Braaiwords Dictionary

Aai a braai in the summer aka – a braai without the br!

Abbraaiviation a very short braai

aBRAAIço I´m from Brasil! the word abraço is HUG in Portuguese! I love South Africa! A big HUG to you all!! So a ABRAAIço to you all!!! A united country is not only stronger but happier!

Abraaimowitz a Jewish braai

agOne of the most useful South African words.

Jazz tones from Three Cohens

09/16/2015 10:00:28

Jazzaholic by Don Albert: The world’s No 1 clarinet player Anat Cohen, has played at Joy of Jazz before, but this time she will be coming out with her two brothers.

They are trumpeter Avishai and soprano saxophonist Yuval, she herself will be playing tenor saxophone and clarinet. Her use of the tenor in the lower register is to fill out the sound. “We‘re going to have great musicians with us, pianist Yonathan Avishai, bassist Matt Penman and drummer Ulysses Owens Jr., who is part of the Christian McBride trio.”

She says the sextet will be playing music from their recent CD titled ‘Family’ as well as some compositions which will be presented a cappella by just the three horns, trumpet, soprano and tenor. It’s like a conversation between us, this way we’re presenting our music in a very intimate way. Our original music includes a nod to Louis Armstrong and other jazz giants such as Charles Mingus.”

She makes no bones about how she feels about her younger brother Avishai. “I think he is the best trumpet player I have ever heard. He can play anything from hard bop to avant-garde and has a beautiful tone, on a recent TV programme he was jamming with Hugh Masekela.” What about Yuval her older brother? “I think he is one of the most original voices (on his instrument.) He had a big influence on Avishai and me. He has an original way in working with changes (chord sequences) and his playing is very melodic orientated. He’s bringing his wife, who was born in South Africa, with him.

“We all have our own bands, so when we meet up we’ve found a way to work together by using a common thread, which is quite easy having grown up with the same music.

“We are very excited about bringing our music to the people of South Africa.”

The Three Cohens will appear at Joy of Jazz on the Diphala Stage on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 September. Booking is at Computicket.

Don Albert is an ex-saxophonist and jazz journalist. He spent 12 years with The Star Newspaper on the Tonight! section writing about jazz. He has presented radio programmes on jazz and was the presenter of the TV series Jazz Studio. He has served on the panel for judges at prestigious competitions. He has also won numerous awards, the latest being A Judges Commendation in the 2013 National Arts Festival Arts Journalist of the Year Awards. Presented by Business and Arts South Africa. It read: For outstanding work as an arts journalist over a sustained period, and for his invaluable contribution to the Jazz Industry through incisive, knowledgeable and passionate reporting.

With thanks to Don Albert and Artslink

Guy Buttery & Gareth Gale music dining evening

Shweshwe Skies

09/15/2015 13:22:52

Multiple award-winning guitar virtuoso Guy Buttery returns to Jhb with a new one-off show featuring drummer/percussionist extraordinaire Gareth Gale.

With sell-out performances nationally and internationally, Guy Buttery is Africa’s biggest acoustic music export. His recent tour of SA was voted “Top Live Show of the Year” by The Cape Times.

Gareth Gale’s extraordinary work as one of SA’s leading percussionists has taken him to premier arts destinations around the world. He draws inspiration from the African and Indian rhythms that radiate out of his home city, Durban, and is conscious of reflecting these whenever he plays.

This electrifying duo has toured France and the US together but have seldom appeared in concert in SA. After receiving yet another Standard Bank Ovation Award for “Best Live Performance” at last year’s National Arts Festival, Guy and Gareth have continued to push the envelope of what a simple duo is capable of.

Expect high dynamics, deep grooves, delicate African inflections and mind-bending guitar/drum chemistry of a new order.

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – Wednesday 9th September 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1

An AJR Blog Supreme1NB, BIG WARNING – It’s going to be a really tough few weeks going forward at All Jazz Radio. We have some new owners in our building which is a good thing however a small problem comes with this good news, there will be builders making alterations to the apartment directly above our studio, so there will be lots of noise going on. We have come to agreement that they will keep noise to a limit at certain times of our broadcast day. The builders estimated that the whole renovation will take up to four weeks, in spite of this not all that time will be heavy banging and drilling. So my policy for the Jazz Rendezvous Radio, Pinotage, Coffee & Stockvel Show of less talk, more music will mean even less talk and loads more music will be in played there will be very few live on mic announcements and no interviews either during the building period. All info pertaining to what is being played will be Tweeted and a running commentary will take place on our Facebook pages, so please keep referring to our social medie sites, bear with us over the next four weeks.

Its another day and there is so much more new music that has come into the studios, we just love it ‘cause there is a whole heap of new Jazz, Blues, Latin and World jazz to share with the global village again this day. It’s unbelievable how much fabulous new music that is currently being released by the individual jazz musicians in the global village to date and that excludes all the well-known major record labels of the world. I’ve got to add a personal thanks to all the independent radio promoters and artist owned labels that make sure we get this new music regularly to play on All Jazz Radio.

See and read the full story and line up here

The Klutz in the Kitchen really loves today’s food celebration because he really like making it for friends and guests and he’s really very good at it. Sadly on his meagre pension he can’t afford to indulge himself more than once every four years or so, having to set a date and save for it. Nuff sorrow and tears for now.

It’s Steak Au Poivre Day, that’s right pan-fried pepper fillet, just salivating at the very thought of it, aren’t you.

Steak Au Poivre is a French dish characterized by a steak, usually nice piece of fillet, coated with crushed peppercorns and then fried in a hot steel pan and it’s normally seared with lots of unsalted butter and sometimes a little oil and served with a yummolicious sauce, made with brandy, cream, butter, shallots, and sometimes Dijon mustard. The Klutz serves his with creamy garlicky mashed potatoes and Green Beans sautéed with bacon bits and fresh French bread to soak up the leftover sauce.

BTW, it’s also I Love Food and Wienerschnitzel day, that’s more about the Klutzes speed on the affordability scale.

Just a friendly reminder that September 29th is a big day for caffeine disciples everywhere, its International Coffee Day An annual holiday which is one of the most popular days on the fun holiday calendar, surprised? Mind you The Klutz believes every day is a celebration to enjoy the beverage whether it’s hot, iced, flavoured, espresso, cappuccino, latte, decaf, ok that’s taking it a bit far the decaf thing as a real coffaholic, I demand that decaf be withdrawn from the list, if not the Klutzes evil twin will be siced upon one and that no one wants to see happen.

LONDON JAZZ NEWS LIVE MUSIC REVIEW:

Michael Janisch’s Paradigm Shift at the Vortex

Vortex, 3rd September 2015. Review by Sebastian Scotney

I can’t imagine a band which, could give a composer more variety of timbre, pulse, pace, style, than the one Michael Janisch has assembled for this 35-date tour, of which last night was the first. It somehow felt like a huge newly-designed ship was being sent down the slipway and into the water, and as a bystander one got occasional glimpses of its scale.

Today is Chocolate Chip Biscuit/Cookie Day

Chocolate chip Cookies on trayNow we all like a biscuit / cookie and as we chomp into the damn thing bite back no matter ones resolution to only have one, maybe two. After that first bite one wants to eat more and dunk them is some hot beverage. I see you know the feeling huh! The Klutz in the Kitchen embarked an exhaustive Internet research project to discover the history of now famous The Chocolate Chip Cookie, which has invaded the palettes of children of all ages in the global village today. The Klutz would like to thank The Nibble for supplying the story that follows.

The History Of The Chocolate Chip Cookie

Chocolate chip cookie-lovers: Where would we be if it weren’t for Ruth Graves Wakefield (1903-1977), a 1930s-era Massachusetts innkeeper? Without Ruth there would be no chocolate chip cookies and by extension, no peanut butter chip cookies or other flavours of chips, no chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, no Chipwich. But why dwell on those what-if horrors? Let’s look at the happy history.

Ruth Graves graduated from the Framingham State Normal School Department of Household Arts in 1924. She worked as a dietician and lectured on food.

In 1930, Kenneth and Ruth Wakefield purchased a historic Cape Cod-style inn, the Toll House, on the outskirts of Whitman, Massachusetts, halfway between Boston and New Bedford. Originally constructed in 1709, the house had served as a stop for travellers in Colonial times: they paid their road toll, changed horses and dined. Over 200 years later, the Wakefields opened a lodge on the premises, the Toll House Inn. They served traditional Colonial fare. Ruth did the baking, and her desserts were very popular.

One day in 1937, while preparing a batch of Butter Drop Do cookies, a colonial brown sugar cookie recipe, Ruth found that she did not have the baker’s chocolate required, and instead chopped a bar of Nestlé Semi-Sweet Chocolate into tiny pieces. She added them to the dough, expecting them to melt during baking; instead, the chocolate held its shape and softened to a creamy texture. The new cookies became very popular at the Inn; Ruth’s recipe was published in newspapers throughout New England, and sales of Nestlé’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar skyrocketed.

Ruth eventually approached Nestlé and reached an agreement that allowed Nestlé to print what would become known as the Toll House Cookie recipe on the wrapper of the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar (part of the agreement included supplying Ruth with all of the chocolate she could use for the rest of her life). As the recipe continued to grow in popularity, Nestlé began to score the chocolate bar and packaged it with a special chopper for easy cutting into small morsels. In 1939, they introduced Nestlé Toll House Real Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels. Nestlé claims that the Toll House is the most popular cookie of all time. Who are we to disagree?

And the recipe was originally called Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookies, as the morsels, or chips, came later.

The After Story

Officially, chocolate chip cookies are the state cookie of Massachusetts, where they were invented, and Pennsylvania, home to Hershey’s, Nestlé’s chief competitor in the chocolate morsel business. Alas, you can’t visit the Toll House Inn today. In 1966, Kenneth and Ruth sold it and retired to Duxbury, Massachusetts. The new owners turned the building into a nightclub. In 1970, it was sold again, to the Saccone family, who restored the original Toll House Inn and Restaurant. Unfortunately, on New Year’s Eve 1984, the old building caught fire and was destroyed.

Now that you know the history of this tasty little morsel, you going to head to your local purveyor of all things you diet instructor warned you against. Go one you know you want that little beastie of a Chocolate Chip Cookie new, so go get some and enjoy. J

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – Thursday 3rd September 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1A BLOG SUPREME

A beautiful day in the African Jazz Capital – The City of Cape Town, which offers hope of good things to come, Braai’s (barbeques) spring to mind, which has really excited the Klutz in the Kitchen and yours truly. I’ve got to invest in a kettle braai, to install on my apartments balcony, this time I believe it’s the right thing to do, gas braais just don’t cut it at all. It’s the smoke and smell washed down with a great Craft Beer or a glass and a half of Pinotage to hand and the flavourful meat that makes it so worthwhile. The mission is now to find where the best place is to go to buy one at the best price, naturally. Oh I must talk to the body corporate chairperson first to make sure its ok to braai on the balcony.

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – Tuesday 31st August 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1A BLOG SUPREMEIt’s supposed to be the start of spring in the Southern Hemisphere today I’m reliably informed told. Get you facts right weather person, it’s still winter in Cape Town, overcast, chilly, wet and miserable, humpf! Forecasters huh! Breakfast on the go today the best steak pie every from Coimbra Bakery, Claremont, beats Woolworths, Pick n Pay, Checkers, Shoprite, Spar, in fact any supermarket bakery anytime of the day.

There I was, hanging around at the computer at home checking things on Facebook, Twitter and the Internet seeing all sorts of interesting things I decided to follow up on a couple. So I went out to try out a new coffee shop in Kenilworth, Bootleggers, now after seeing there Facebook page and the picture of one of their burgers, and as one knows The Klutz in the Kitchen is a real sucker for a really good burger at anytime of the day. I ordered a cup of their coffee, shock and horror a mini cup was served, no not an espresso cup nor a regular cup at all, the waitress noticed my look of disappointment and said, “ don’t like the small cup?” er what do you think young lady I said. At 20bucks that was a total rip off to my way of thinking. Nuff said for now read the full review of the visit to the Bootlegger later when we publish The Klutz in the Kitchen’s Straight Talkin’ No Punches Pulled Restaurant Grub n’ Pub n’ Cooking Stuff n’ Reviews

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – Wednesday 26th August 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1A BLOG SUPREME

It bodes well this day in the Jazz Capital of Africa, looks like it’s going to be a beautiful day in the Mother City of Cape Town. I’ve not consulted any of the weather guru’s so I believe it’s gonna be a real goodie. A day to take a walk along the Sea Point Promenade or through the Kirstenbosch Gardens with you smart phone tuned into All Jazz Radio online, taking a tea break all the while enjoying great jazz. Mind you no matter where one finds oneself in the global village the same suggestion applies, nice thought huh, take the time for yourself today.

This week I’ve again been disappointed and lost some more faith in Cape Town musicians. Having arranged an interview with a prominent Cape Town musician on Monday only to be phoned by his “manager” to say he’s too tired to come in after a hectic weekend. I was asked if he could come at the same time the following day, duly arranged and agreed. The appointed time comes and goes, again no show and no phone call at all the time. Am I pissed off, oh yes, its something that happens all too often with Cape Town and South African musicians. What can be done, I don’t know we as radio try to promote their work and these people, “managers” and artists alike are so wrapped up in their own self-importance showing little regard for etiquette, time keeping and respect. It’s just plain rude and indicative of society as a whole, protocols forgotten, word spreads to others and leads to opportunities wasted and pushed to the back of the queue and being declined next time its a real state of affairs in the small world of South African Jazz today.

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – Monday 17th August 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1A BLOG SUPREMECurrently listening to pianist Mike del Ferro’s The Johannesburg Sessions.

NOTE From the AJR Big Boss

Thank you for all of your invaluable and ongoing support of All Jazz Radio. I must offer a huge vote of thanks to you all, our world wide volunteer presenters, for your invaluable and unwavering support and assistance in keeping the music playing during these past few months. I am back on air once again and behind the mic after a long lay off and presenting The Jazz Rendezvous Radio, Pinotage & Coffee Stockvel Club daily from 10am Central African Time. I do hope that you’ll listen in an encourage all in your circle to do so daily hence forward.

After a far to long lay off due to a number of health issues over the past few months, a total right proper inconvenience and, literally pain in the butt, it has been, I must add. that I’m also a bit tired of being prodded and pricked having undergone a battery of tests to ascertain the reasons for this horrible bout of ill health. Feeling like a popper pin cushion right now. Still no reasons or results given as of yet, however it seems as the medicines (drugs ) prescribed are doing the job as intended, at last. Also due to these pesky lurgies and other nasty things, I’ve also not been able to get out and about much for a while to see and hear some of the gigs around town, hopefully this will change too. Who said it was an easy thing to run an Internet radio station out of my apartment on one’s own. Crazy, but its being done. eh!

Nuff of the gloomier side, thank the gods for the positive finally happening. It has not been easy and I am fully focused on getting on top of things again, though I may request some assistance and guidance from various quarters going forward. So, with that in mind I’ve a lot of catching up to do, mostly blerry boring AJR admin, which has grown into dictionary of “paper work”, not my most favourite task at all. Best of all are the mounds of new music and artists I need to go though, sjoe! tons of it, but what a fun journey of discovery lay’s ahead for yours truly. Should you wish for me to send you some of the  new albums by South African jazz, blues, Latin and world jazz artists, feel free to let me know and I’ll send it via WeTransfer. There are a number of free radio music download sites that I am a member of, mostly independent music and artists. This has been a boon of incredible discovery of new music and talent. Who said jazz is only 1% or 2% of the world wide music market. If you, in your country find that there is some music by artists in your area, please let me know or send the albums to me for inclusion in our library, gotta love the digital era, eh! Currently I’m listening to Marianne Solivan’s album Spark and will follow that with Nduduzo Makhathini double cd offering, then Jon Irabagon Inaction Is An Action, Fred Hersch’s Solo then Cecile McLorin Salvant’s For One To Love then Rus Nerwich The Wondering Who then Larry Carlton & David T. Walker at Billboard Live, Tokyo then Marcus Wyatt & ZAR Jazz Orchestra One Life In The Sun then Jeff Healey The Best of the Stony Plain Years- Vintage Swing, Jazz and Blues then Ramsey Lewis Taking Another Look then Bokani Dyer World Music to mention but a few but so far so good. Jeez the list just keeps growing and with so many CD reviews to write. Please feel free to write some CD reviews and stories pertaining to jazz from your part of the world so that we can add it under your by line on our website and social media pages, thanks in advance. Just email it to me as an attached word document.

The Klutz in the Kitchen will also get to the task of finding those delicious, simple, quick and easy recipes whereby one will be able cook up a storm in preparation for the hours of happy listening to the great music feature on the unique and unmatched online radio station that is All Jazz Radio.

Our plonk swigging and swilling pirate of beer and wine barrels will also be getting on with his usual hunt for the wondrous treasures from the cellar masters and masters of brewing excellence. The plonkaholic will enlighten, educate and edify all the enjoy the fermented fruit and berries of the earth from time to time, something not to be missed and exclusive to All Jazz Radio.

Thanks,

We’re still doing it world wide like no one else,

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – Monday 06 April 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1Cape-Town-International-Jazz-Festival16I’m really tired of the jazz police, so called jazz aficionados, narrow minded, blinkered, self appointed, arbitrators of all things jazz who come out of the woodwork around and after jazz festivals. I also must confess I am not, nor will I ever be a member of the jazz police nor be a purist when it comes the music I love and respect. I encourage all jazz lovers to keep open ears when listening to jazz music, there are many forms and sounds to hear.

Call me a grumpy old man or anything else but lets stop accepting half assed uninformed stories. These story writers and commentators make outlandish poorly informed pronouncements about what jazz and jazz festivals are supposed to be, to make matters even worse some ill-informed writers pick up on some of these gripes and write uneducated, unsearched and often stupid stories which get prominence from their editors. A recent story raised my ire completely and occurred after the recent CTIJF.

If one judges the artists performing on the Kiepies stage alone then I can agree totally with the some of the Facebook sentiments as reported in the recent newspaper story, there is little or no jazz at the festival. Sadly many commentators tend focus on Kiepies at the CITJF, which has never been a jazz stage since the start of the Festival 16 years ago. There have been some jazz artists booked to perform on that stage.

I have been involved in the world of Jazz Broadcasting for the past 20 and we know there is little or no jazz on the many terrestrial radio stations of our country. I have further been associated with the CTIJF for the past 16 years having been the host of the media conferences and as an MC on the Rosies stage.

Rosies has been the main Jazz Stage at the festival where over the years we have seen and heard great jazz performers delighting audiences. It is the place where the real jazz lovers congregate each year to listen to those many respected jazz musicians.

This year I was, for the first time, the sole MC on the Rosies stage, on the Friday night where I introduced and experienced performances by Madala Kunene, the only none jazz artist on the stage, but then were entertained by Gerald Clayton, Gavin Minter, Mike Del Ferro with Tony Lakatos who are jazz artists.

On Saturday I introduced Mike Perry who performed a very moving tribute to his late friend, partner and mentor Winston Mankunku Ngozi then came Banz Oester, Victor Masondo with Thembi Mtshali followed with trumpet great Wallace Roney with friends Lenny White and Buster Williams rounded out the evening. The sadness for me is I didn’t see any of the festival detractors and journalists seated in Rosies to listen to the really good jazz being performed.

The second jazz stage is the Molelekwa stage where one will find exciting old and new, up and coming artists, experimental and mainstream jazz performed on the stage. Friday saw rising star vocalist Zoe Modige, Italian teen vocalist and multi instrumentalist, Andrea Motis, the mercurial Melanie Scholtz, Purbayan Chattergee, Talvin Singh and our own Shane Cooper. On Saturday The Claude Cousins Trio, with Kyle Shepherd and Benjamin Jephta, Sons of Kemet, The Brother Moves On and Carlo Mombelli and The Storytellers closed the stage.

Other notable respected jazz musicians included Jason Miles, Courtney Pine as well as The Delft Big Band and The Heathfield High School Band performed on the Basil Manenburg Coetzee Stage. To those who decided not to attend solely because who was on the Kiepies stage, i say  you were shortsighted, uninformed and stupid because there were many wonderful jazz artists who performed to choose from.

I respectfully state those who reported so badly on the state of jazz at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival know little of nothing of jazz, had their heads up their asses, pretending to do their job from the comfort of the journalist hospitality area. There are very few jazz journalists in South Africa, I can count the real jazz/arts journalists on my one hand, therefore any journalist worth their salt would be wise to consult those who know and understand jazz and should go back to school and study arts journalism and at least go read, listen to and find out what jazz is.

I would like to conclude that jazz gets a bad rap when so many do not know or understand what jazz is yet make pronouncements thereby creating a false understanding. Support for jazz is important, get to know and understand jazz. Our jazz musicians deserve respect and support, go buy their CD’s go pay to see them perform and listen to real jazz radio little or none of which is heard on any terrestrial broadcaster in South Africa.

The mediocre state of arts journalistic reviewing and endeavours should really be of concern to editors.

Please note that I am no apologist nor have involvement with the organisers of the festival other than being a volunteer for the tasks I perform each year at the festival.

Dee Daniels

Dee Daniels

It’s great to see vocalist Dee Daniels indefatigable spirit remains high, here is what she has to say about her recovery;

Dear Facebook Family…I have begun the 4th week of recovery on a high note! This morning, I took my first shower since February 10th…HALLELUJAH!!! Pardon the language, but it was orgasmic

Yesterday I was told that the chemotherapy treatments (4 over 3 months followed by radiation) would begin on March 26th. I’m good with that, still feeling thoroughly blessed…(please keep your prayers wheels turning as long as you can). The knowledge that I will loose my hair prompted me to make a decision…why not get the jump on that phenomena. So…I have created the ultimate solution…

NO MAKEUP + NO COLOUR + NO HAIR = FREEDOM! Whoohoo J

You remain in our thoughts and I sure of those of our listeners of the prayer persuasion. You are looking great. You go Girl.

A Blog Supreme – All Jazz Radio – Monday March 2015

All Jazz Radio Logo Face Book1A BLOG SUPREMEAfter the frenetic activity of last week the new week started off with a look at what’s to come in the week ahead. On seeing what the first day of the new week holds, Jam Sessions at a number of venues around town. Why the Jam session has become synonymous with Monday Nights fails my understanding, can anyone enlighten me at all? It is my simple held view that a good, well-arranged and organised Jam Session can happen any night of the week or time, right? Enough of the editorialising, you see I took the decision to take my sorry old butt to one of these very shindigs.

Dan Shout

Dan Shout

Well-known highly motivated bandleader, teacher, recording artist, promoter and Saxophonist Daniel Shout, Esquire has been running one of these Monday night events very successfully for quite a while now. To my shame, though invited numerous times, I have not yet paid a visit to the Lyra’s in Rondebosh, so by mutual agreement I arranged to meet our Webetor (web site editor) Carol Martin at the venue for an evening of jazz. On arrival meeting the manager who with her smile gave a welcome feeling as a first time visitor to the venue. The Monday Jam Session kicked of the first set with the house band of Andrew Ford, Keys – Romy Brauteseth, Double Bass – Jonno Sweetman, Drums and led so ably by Dan Shout from behind his Tenor Sax.

Lyra's LogoSpecial guest on the night was UK based Alto Sax player and Vocalist AJ Brown. A kickass first set it was too, and AJ had a table of cougars really in the front row the butt shuffle, arm waving chair dance. The management also told me that they had a few regulars who have permanently booked tables every Monday for the Jam Session at Lyra’s, not a bad testament to the nights entertainment. The Jam was efficiently executed and controlled by host Dan keeping the music and musicians flowing with reasonable precision all in all a really enjoyable evening of showcasing the rising and future jazz stars of tomorrow. If one has not visited Lyra’s before make a booking now for next Monday. The Klutz in the Kitchen is writing a review on the meal we had, go read it on the website,
