Abdullah Ibrahim
Jazz
 
19:30 - 23:55 GMT
05-Jun-05
Hall 1, The Sage Gateshead, St Mary's Square, Gateshead Quays
 
A jazz legend of global stature, pianist Abdullah Ibrahim is, in addition to being the principal symbol of the rich South African jazz heritage, a solo performer of great originality and influence with a great international reputation - he is according to The Guardian, "one of the best loved jazz pianists in the world".

A key member in the early sixties of one of South Africa's first jazz bands - The Jazz Epistles - he got his big break when Duke Ellington heard him as an exile in Europe. After a short stint with the Ellington orchestra, he went on to play with many of the jazz greats in the States including Don Cherry and Elvin Jones. Lately, he has returned to his roots in South Africa, dividing his time there with his adopted home of New York.

His distinctive sound combines the rich harmonies and traditions of South Africa's township music with the exciting creativity of Jazz. From luminous, gospel-like anthems to hypnotic rhythmic vamps, his music is approachable and compelling. Don't miss this rare opportunity to see one of the world's greatest musicians. Abdullah's latest CD, A Celebration (Enja), is out now. He appears at The Sage Gateshead as the Abdullah Ibrahim Trio.
