Nduduzo Makhathini

Born:

Every generation has its own leading lights. For the current generation of South African young jazz musicians, pianist, and composer, Nduduzo Makhathini stands as a key torchbearer. It’s useful to note the refreshing virtuosity with which the 34 years old jazzman articulates a decidedly spiritual vision of the world with the piano, and his compositional clarity. Makhathini plays with a bright lyricism and a full sound pallet that gives him a markedly wide melodic vocabulary. His music is as open as it is invigorating. Makhathini commands the sort of remarkable talent and thematic focus that posits him among an illustrious pantheon of forbears

Angel Bat Dawid, Fay Victor, Satoko Fujii and Clean Feed Releases

Read "Angel Bat Dawid, Fay Victor, Satoko Fujii and Clean Feed Releases" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Risk-taking singer Fay Victor's powerhouse new album for ESP-Disk is called We've Had Enough, but the title could easily be used on Angel Bat Dawid's latest as well. It reflects some rather shabby treatment on a recent our in Europe. Her album Live sees and Tha Brothahood in full bore. Other new releases sampled come from ...

Read "Lina Allemano, Yaroslav Likhachev, Pauli Lyytinen and More" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


This episode might be a week early, given that seven days later is International Jazz Day, but OMJ has been pretty international in scope for a long time now. Thirteen different countries are represented among the artists featured this week.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
