Kev, not sure if you know, but there's a lot of earlier stuff released under his former name - Dollar Brand. Also on the tube.

That was fabulous. I know the album recording of this tune, which was top of the Jazz FM charts for week after week after week when the radio station had just started. But this live version is a bit different and superbly recorded. Great solos too.

Thanks a lot.

Trimmy,

This music is so close to my heart. I am so glad you enjoy it too.


This is a nice blow :)

And this, to wake us all up again. Also a fun one to play.

A few of his compositions are in the ABRSM grade and Real books for jazz saxophone exams. There are lead sheets and some backing tracks, but not necessarily in the original keys, for these songs:
•Mannenberg
•Ek Se
•Mandela
•The Mountain
•The Wedding

PS Occasionally he used to play and record on soprano sax.

Maybe if you email the promoters...

If you get anywhere, let us know, I'm sure a few others will be interested.
