Tune Me WhatTune Me What – Caravan of Sound By Brett Lock and Leon Lazarus

Lloyd Ross

Lloyd Ross

There was an urban legend going around in the South African musical fraternity that Lloyd Ross, the founder of Shifty records, had managed to fund his alternative record label with the money he earned writing the theme music to the popular Afrikaans TV drama series ‘Vyfster’.

Koos KIombuis

Koos KIombuis

It’s a great story, but alas not entirely true, as he tells Koos Kombuis in an interview for the SA edition of Rolling Stone magazine:

I did indeed write ‘Vyfster’. But no, I had to make a helluva lot more money than that to lose while I recorded and released Shifty records part-time. I worked in the film industry for that money. And later the Swedes gave enough money so that I could lose it for a couple of years full-time.

Regardless, the story of Shifty Records is fascinating and as Tune Me What joins other fans of the label in celebrating ‘Shifty September’ – marking 30 years since the label was founded – we end our trilogy of Shifty-themed shows joined in our ‘virtual studio’ by Lloyd Ross himself.

The conversation is punctuated with some of the key records from Shifty’s

Sankomota

Sankomota

history, from their first LP by Sankomota to their final releases with Van der Want/Letcher.

There’s a huge variety for such a small label too; we hear the a cappella singing of the FOSATU Worker’s Choir to the electronic experiment of the Kalahari Surfers.

Most of all, we hear from Lloyd Ross as he talks about Shifty’s mission to challenge the old regime, their battle with censorship, their role in the new South Africa and why eventually they had to call it a day, leaving the rich musical legacy we’re celebrating 30 years later.

Also mentioned in the programme is Michael Drewett’s documentary about Roger Lucey, which is well worth watching. Also, read Roger’s book!

Tune Me What? is a podcast and blog by Brett Lock and Leon Lazarus that highlights South African music and artists at home and around the world. For more information, visit tunemewhat.com or facebook.com/TuneMeWhat.

Joe Ready to Serve ‘Gold’ At Jazz Safari By Felix Eupal

Joe Thomas

Joe Thomas

It is regarded as the biggest jazz concert in the country. It happens once every year and has been doing so since 2008.

It is the Nile Gold Jazz Safari and this year’s edition will be going down this Friday evening at Serena hotel’s Victoria hall. Last year, it was Keith Sweat rocking the stage and this year it is American R&B singer Joe Thomas – popularly known as Joe – and the Tizer band going on stage. Joe, alongside the band, flew in on Tuesday evening and on Wednesday the organizers held a press briefing to share their thoughts about the concert.

Going by the lineup and their promise of a ‘gold’ concert that will awe Kampala, one is left with just one option; dress up and wait to be blown away. Joe held a concert in Kampala way back in 2008 and the seven-time Grammy award-nominated singer, with a new album up his sleeve, says: “I will be doing a bit of everything from the old favourites like ‘Don’t Wanna Be A Player'”.

Another performer will be Norman Brown, an award-winning guitarist in the best pop instrumental category. Starting his guitar playing career at age eight, Brown told The Observer, “I will be doing some covers, but mostly I want the fans to have the best; so, most focus will be on the originals.”

Then there is the Tizer comprised of five people: Lao Tizer, Steve Nieves, Raul Pineda, Chieli Minnuci and Andre Manga. They have performed at Java Jazz festival in Jakarta, Joy Jazz Festival in Johannesburg, Dubai Jazz festival, and Barbados Jazz festival, among others.

Silk Events are in charge of the production and have promised to outdo themselves. The artistes had a music test and rehearsal session yesterday to ensure there would be no sound glitches. This year’s concert campaign was dubbed ‘Crack the Code’ in which people had the chance to open a safe once they bought Nile Gold from selected outlets.

Twenty-one lucky people won tickets to the show plus the chance to meet the artistes up close at the ‘Meet and Greet’, invite-only, party that was hosted at Guvnor. Just like last year, part of the proceeds will go towards supporting the cancer ward at Nsambya hospital. So, it isn’t just about music, but also partying for a good cause.

Tickets have been going for Shs 180,000, and sorry for those who haven’t got theirs as yet; they are already sold out.

Seun Kuti At Dimajazz 2014 – Anthem for Africa

Seun Kuti

Seun Kuti

Constantine, Algeria — Nigerian singer and saxophonist Seun Kuti gave Thursday, in Constantine (431-km east of Algiers), a concert, an anthem for Africa and its youth, as part of the International Jazz Festival.

Son of famous musician Fela Kuti, founder of afrobeat music, Seun took the audience on a trip to Lagos, with African percussion sounds and his performance of songs from his latest album “Long Way to Beginning.”

Seun Kuti, conducting the group Egypt 80, created by his father, played saxophone before signing “Black women,” a song that praises African beauty and deals with the return to the roots.

He also singed “Higher Consciousness,” which contains messages to the young calling them to “reinvent” Africa.

Perpetuating Afrobeat tradition, the singer performs “Ohun Aiye,” a song that tackles Africa and its ills, urging for change.

Speaking at the end of the show, Seun stressed that for him, politics and music “are one and the same.”

All Jazz Radio Blog Sunday June 13th 2014

So I dragged myself, kicking and screaming, off to Straight No Chaser last night. J Only kidding it was with great anticipation and joy that I took myself off to Straight No Chaser last night to witness the launch of the debut CD, Jubilee Jam by the Claude Cozens Trio. Just having listened to a few tracks from the album when I had Claude in the studio a couple of days before the launch night. With this in mind, I trotted along to the venue with an open mind to hear all the music from the album performed live. The Trio made up of Claude Cozens, leading from behind his drum kit with Benjamin Jephta plucking the bass strings and Kyle Shepherd tinkling the ivories and pounding the keyboards.

 

What a treat to have these musicians performing the compositions of Claude’s, all beautifully written and arranged, and as Claude’s musical story unfolded the subtleties and nuances of each piece came though to the willing ears of the audience. Each of the musicians contributed their individuality and personality, which further to enhanced Claude’s musical story. I was totally blown away by the maturity of Claude’s music and once again showed the depth of jazz talent in Cape Town. The evening was to my mind was a resounding and triumphant successful album launch. Go get a copy soonest one won’t be sorry.

 

Sadly it’s turned out to be an awful day in the Mother City, overcast, but not too chilly, and some rain expected later so its an indoors day with some great comfort food to be cooked. The Klutz in the Kitchen is frantically searching for the recipe of the day, which will be posted on the All Jazz Radio Website, for one the check out.

 

There is an interesting Eclectic Mix of music on today’s musical menu, tune in and have a listen to an uninterrupted music experience on the first choice of radio listening today, which is naturally All Jazz Radio. All of the music featured today are from the many newly released albums that have crossed our music managers desk. I will post the Eclectic Mix playlist this evening for all to see.

 

The Standard Bank Jazz festival in Grahamstown is now over for another year and what a triumph it was, the feedback I’ve been hearing is so positive that Of can’t wait to see what next years festival brings.

 

The Standard Bank Joy Of Jazz is still to come in September and that is something I can’t wait for. The line up is totally enticing and I would encourage one and all the make bookings right away so as to avoid disappointment.

 

I invite you to subscribe to our website to keep updated of all that is happening at All Jazz Radio and ask that you also join our Facebook Group, All Jazz Radio – Cape Town, ZA too. Do remember to tell and encourage Friends, Family and acquaintances to listen the first and finest, Jazz, Blues, Latin and World Jazz online radio station streaming all day and every day from the Jazz Capital of Africa, and the most beautiful city in the world, Cape Town.

All Jazz Radio

I guess when you love doing something, its never too tedious to do, neh, so let me tell you what’s going down on All Jazz Radio on this rather balmy but lovely morning the Mother City. There’s lots of exciting new music and other stuff to come through out our streaming day, today.

 

I went to a venue, Plebs Live Acoustic Music, Comedy & Craft Beer in Mowbray which I’d not been to before last evening for what was billed as a curry taste off where 7 various curry dishes were presented, Lamb, Chicken Thai Chicken, Beef, Fish and Bobotie and served with rice and all cooked by home cooks. Best of all was the cost at R25 for all six which were served in bowls and enough for the three of us old friend who I hadn’t seen for yonks, with Alison, Barry and I sharing the table and quaffing the Belgium style craft ale, which wasn’t too bad at all. The evenings music was performed by a number acoustic folk musicians some of which were very good, some not so good and some who were real prima donna’s, sulked and did not perform because they did not bring all the needed equipment with them, nuff said. The place could do with a real clean up, décor wise, just little too drab, however it’s not run as a restaurant, though it could be as it is the place the ale is brewed. All in all a very lekker evening catching up with old friends, enjoying the music, mixing and meeting with great like minded peeps.

It’s a gorgeous morning, but chilly start to the day in The Mother City, so my, and many Peeps spirits will be buoyed by what the day ahead holds out no matter what Mother Nature has in store.
