Lugano Jazz Festival 1999


How did music like this come out of Cape Town, South Africa?

Start with one sensitive child absorbing all the influences of a port town including traditional African songs, Gospel and Indian ragas. American sailors provided the jazz records. Ellington and Monk were huge influences.

By 15 Abrahim was playing professionally.

In 1962, Duke Ellington heard him while in Europe and out came the record “Duke Ellington presents The Dollar Brand Trio" which put him on the map. (Before becoming a Muslim Abdullah Ibrahim's name was Dollar Brand.)
