Performers Abdullah Ibrahim/NDR Big Band

Not yet rated | write a review
Personnel: Abdullah Ibrahim (piano); NDR Big Band.
Recorded at Jazz Open Air am Rothenbaum, Hamburg, Germany on June 24, 2000.
Includes liner notes by Stefan Gerdes.
On this unique release, Abdullah Ibrahim combines indigenous music from South Africa with contemporary big band sounds. The German group the NDR Big Band, famous for their work with Chet Baker, Lionel Hampton, Dexter Gordon and others brings this music to life under the fine direction of Dieter Glawischnig.
British and Austrian pianists Steve Gray and Fritz Pauer arranged the charts for these sessions, using a full array of instrumental textures and colors to expand upon the already-passionate music of Ibrahim. The album opens with a "Kramat," which borrows from a traditional Capetown melody. Later, we hear "Mindif," a piece that highlights the subtle, Ellingtonian piano stylings of Ibrahim. The last track, "Duke 88," is a lyrical and swinging homage to the great Duke Ellington. All in all, a cornucopia of musical styles are presented here, but the fiery solos by trumpeter Ingold Burkhardt and flutist Fiete Felsch stand out as the most interesting elements on EKAPA LODUMO.
