6th SAJE Jazz Festival - SOUTH AFRICAN JAZZ
An evening of South African Jazz will feature the Darius Brubeck/Mike Rossi Duo and the Afrika Mkhize/Salim Washington Quartet.
The first half of the evening features Darius Brubeck (piano) and Mike Rossi (saxophones/flute/clarinet) - this yer they celebrate 30 plus years of jazz and friendship. They have performed together in the UK, USA, South Africa, Germany, Romania and Italy where Mike tours and teaches on an annual basis. Darius and Mike sometimes form an American/Italian quartet that has played at the Ancona, Arcevia and Jesi Jazz Festivals and hope to add other Italian destinations. Mike has often been a featured member of the Darius Brubeck Quartet and has performed in the USA and South Africa under the banner of “Brubecks Play Brubeck” with Darius, Chris and Dan Brubeck.
The second half of the evening features a wonderful quartet featuring Afrika Mkhize - piano (Standard Bank Young Artist for Jazz 2012), Salim Washington (saxophone), Nigerian bassist Amaeshi Ikechi, and drummer Siphiwe Shiburi. Their performance forms part of a national tour with funding from the Concerts SA Mobility Fund.
