Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:05am Webhamster Henry:

I've found precious few recordings of autoharps in the whole continent of Africa. Yet there should be, I'd think, since they are light-weight substitutes for pianos. I guess if you have a kora, you're well past that kind of music.

Avatar 🥁 9:53am PAULS:

This is my favorite one so far.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:54am Doug Schulkind:

Gideon Nxumalo describes this song thusly...

"ISINTU can loosely be translated as meaning Humanity of Humaneness. This was especially written for Kippie Moeketsi. Here, once again, I tried to use typical African (Township) chord sequences. If you'll notice, the melody on the saxophone is purely pentatonic apart, of course, from the occasional grace notes Kippie throws in. While the melody is a ballad, I've tried to employ off-beat rhythms in the D section on the piano. This, I believe, is the vogue nowadays... a desire to get away from the regular 4/4 beat."

Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:15am Brian in UK:

Chris, an ironic title?
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:16am doctorjazz:

Not a bad sounding recording...sounds mono, despite the 2 mics, but all players come through very nicely!
Avatar 10:16am Chris Albertyn:

@Brian, indeed - referring to the requirement of black msicians to use the scullery department as their "dressing room"
Avatar 10:18am Chris Albertyn:

Kippie, after seven years away
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:23am Doug Schulkind:

A further explanation behind the title "Scullery Department":

A theme by Moeketsi and is “about” the treatment of the band by a white club owner. The incident is described in Peter Esterhuysen's book Kippie Moeketsi Sad Man of Jazz (Viva Books, 1995): 'One evening the Jazz Espistles were playing in a Johannesburg nightclub. When they took a break the owner led them to the kitchen. He gave the musicians a meal. Then he went back inside his club. While the Epistles were eating, Kippie became very cross. He said, 'By right, you know Dollar, this is all nonsense – this idea of us being taken into the kitchen when there's a break. Are we 'kitchen boys'? Aren't we here to entertain the people?' 'Ja ou pellie,' Dollar answered, 'ons kom nou en dan by die kombuis ... the scullery department.' Kippie started to make up a new song right there in the kitchen. He called his new song 'Scullery Department.'”

I would dearly love love love to get some pledges during this my final show of WFMU's October Hellraiser fundraiser. We're all volunteers here at Give the Drummer Radio. We do this purely for the love. And the music. My program has done well so far (thanks to one spectacularly large pledge), but I would really like to get closer to or exceed my goal. Please make a pledge: pledge.wfmu.org...

Thanks!

My Abdullah Ibrahim story (I've posted this before, apologies to those who've seen it).
Took my wife on our first date to see Abdullah Ibrahim with Ekaya at Sweet Basil. We got there a bit late, last seats were in the front row. Had the trombone (I think it was Dick Griffin) slide whizzing over our heads.
Amazingly, she stayed with me.

I am typing the playlist. Thus typos. Thanks for catching that.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:45am doctorjazz:

Ibrahim usually went into an unaccompanied piano solo at his concerts, and this particular vamp was often what he went to.
I managed to catch Ibrahim live quite a few times, up until the last tour with a reformed Ekaya maybe 3 years ago.

The Sun/As Shams label is on Bandcamp: as-shams.bandcamp.com -- hoping for more backlist to come online. @Chris, do you know the folks behind the reemergence of the label?
Avatar 🥁 10:53am StringOFperils:

May Dick Griffin story (which I may have also told before) was watching Mr. Ibrahim's band here in Toronto, from up close. Abdullah cued the trombone's turn to solo, during a long version of Sathima, and Griffin sort of flew away with it. When he should have dropped back he lost in a transport of pure ecstasy, and kept going, as if in his own world. The band giggled and whispered, but were softly shushed by their leader from the piano who softly said," No, no, let him go. He loves it." And you could see that they knew. They knew THAT feeling very deeply. Griffin kept going, although a tad embarrased. It was beautiful.

Love "Little Boy", one of many Ibrahim tunes that just grab the heart, sound simple, but how many composers pull this off?

Gilbert Matthews on drums, Sipho Gumede on bass, Bail Maneneberg Coetzee on alternate sax

Goosebumps with that one. Thank you. Nice connection point after hearing "Blue Monk" as Dick Griffin spent many fruitful years with Thelonious.

Only $880 to go to reach my (admittedly) lofty goal. Help me do it! It would be a tremendous showing for the Drummer Stream collectively. It would boggle the minds of Ken Freedman and admin folk at WFMU to see a stream show have such a fine showing.

Recorded with compatriots Dennis Mpale (trumpet) and Pat Matshikiza (piano) and others, this treasured album's title, "Our Boys Are Doing It" was a direct answer to Hugh Masekela's wonderful album "The Boy's Doin' It." Like Masekela's album , this recording session took place in Lagos, Nigeria.

3 chords and HEAVEN! (they basically use those 3 chords you hear in La Bamba, sounds uniquely South African)

Almost exactly a decade ago (4 October 2011), after this Allen Kwela record was shared at the Electric Jive blog, this is the comment I left:

"Thank you so much... Any occasion to enjoy some previously unheard Kippie is a treasure indeed. His breezy playing on this session is so dreamy and joyful. The trill he plays during his solo on Quaphela made my heart stop. I am grateful to have this."

And do you know what, my friends? The download link for this glorious recording IS STILL ACTIVE electricjive.blogspot.com... You can go grab it right now:
Avatar 🥁 11:51am Listener Gregory:

Have to run, Doug. I actually had no idea bout Kippie, though I imagine I have heard him play on records without registering his name. Well now I know! Thanks a lot.
