The Hanepoot Big Band is back on Sunday 7 Dec 6 - 9 pm, for another in our series of South African Big Band Jazz evenings at Swingers Jazz Club in Wetton.
This time we'll be featuring an All-Star
rhytm section centered around the drumming of Kesivan Naidoo, and
will also be performing one of Kesivan's compositions "Eclipse" with
the big band. Joining Kes and our regular pianist George Werner
will be guitarist Bruce Muirhead, and Shane Cooper on bass, who
also forms part of the band Babu with Kesivan.
Apart from Kesivan's tune, there'll be a
performance by a septet made up of Storm de Klerk, Simon Bates
(Rudimentals), Hanepoot on trombone, backed by the rhytm section
performing tunes by Hugh Masekela & Kippie Moeketsi.
than that expect to hear an all-South African programme of big band jazz, including several compositions by Douglas Armstrong
and Merton Barrow, and arrangements of tunes by Errol Dyers, Dudu Pukwana
and Zakes Nkosi, including a brand new arrangement of another Marabi gem by legendary composer Zakes Nkosi, called "Jackpot".
Swingers is a great venue in the traditional
jazz club mode. Tables and chairs, a bar, food and
fabulous vibe. Think Ronnie Scott's in London or the
Village Vanguard in New York.
and experience it for yourself!
