PAT VUYISILE MATSHIKIZA – (20.11.1938 – 29.12.2014) RIP. Sad to open 2015 with the news that another obscure SAfrican musician friend and legendary jazz pianist has departed into the great unknown, and, unheard of within the confines of our shallow commercial music media mainstream. Pat was an iconic, hidden living treasure. One of South Africa’s jazz greats he was part of a music family dynasty: son of pianist Meekly Matshikiza, nephew to Uncle Todd ‘King Kong’ Matshikiza and cousin to the late John Matshikiza (author & Journalist)from Queenstown, Eastern Cape. 3rd Ear Music suspects that in 2015 the music media and the commercial record industry pack will fall over themselves to look, learn and listen to what Pat Mat The Hat was about; too little too late, again. He was extraordinary – that’s who and what Pat was – and you have only yourselves to blame for missing one of SAfrica’s legendary and colourful jazz musician characters. These 2 tracks were part of a 10 track recording session on the 5th November 1990 and were never issued: FREE AS SOUND / ZIMUNGU featured Pat Matshikiza – Piano Vocals & Grunts / Kevin Gibson & Lulu Gontsana (RIP) – Drums / Zim Ngqawana (RIP) – Sax / Victor Masondo – Bass / Johnny Mekoa – Trumpet. Recorded in the 3rd Ear / Tusk Music Mobile in Durban by David Marks & Produced by Darius Brubeck, and re-mastered in 2006 by David from a VHS PCM Audio tape.

Honoring Makaya Ntshoko: Jam Session, 16.12.2014, the bird’s eye jazz club

Filed under: music,music and exile symposium — ABRAXAS @ 9:23 pm

To the music related media, organisations, promoters and researchers in South Africa and beyond

The bird’s eye jazz club at Basel, Switzerland in cooperation with the Centre for African Studies at the University of Basel celebrates the legendary drummer of Jazz Epistles’ fame. The jam session will be streamed live via www.birdseye.ch.

Makaya Ntshoko is rated among the most eminent jazz artists. The drummer made jazz history with the legendary Dollar Brand Trio (Abdullah Ibrahim) and as house drummer at the Montmartre in Copenhagen in the late 1960s, the Domizil in Munich (mid-1970s) and has virtually performed and recorded with all major jazz musicians from the USA. For well over four decades Makaya Ntshoko has been living in Basel and has thus not only marked, influenced and promoted the international but also the Basel jazz scene in a major way. On 29 October 2014 he turned 75. On December 16 the bird’s eye (where Makaya recorded his live CD Happy House) offers him the opportunity to meet and jam with fellow musicians and friends.

Date and time: 16.12.2014, 20h30
Venue: the bird’s eye jazz club, Kohlenberg 20, 4051 Basel
No reservation – door opens at 20h00 – come early!
Live stream: tune in the session on www.birdseye.ch

The bird’s eye jazz club in cooperation with the Centre for African Studies at the University of Basel has been running for the past decade a highly successful series of South African Jazz. This has resulted in the publication of the sampler Live at the bird’s eye jazz club Vol. 13 South Africa (LABE13, 2013). Regularly South African artists are featured as artists in residence. In the context of the 2006 residency of Feya Faku the Swiss South African Jazz Quintet (with Makaya Nthsoko on drums) was founded, which then toured South Africa in 2007 including a residency of Makaya Ntshoko at the District Six Museum in Cape Town.
