SAJE celebrates INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY

Today, as we celebrate International Jazz Day along with thousands of others around the world, we will present two wonderful collaborative jazz bands made up of jazz musicians from Pretoria, Durban, Cape Town, Boston, USA and Fermo, Italy.

The Mageshen Naidoo Quintet (Mageshen Naidoo, Roland Moses, Mike Rossi, Dave Ridgway and Mark Augustin) will perform originals and South African jazz standards.

The International Jazz Guitar Trio will feature three amazing jazz guitarists: Alvin Dyers from Cape Town, Mageshen Naidoo from Durban and
Roberto Zechini from Fermo, Italy.

The Latin Jazz Trio will feature Brazilian jazz accordionist Guilherme Ribeiro, with Amanda Tiffin on vocals and Dave Ledbetter on guitar.
