RIVETS JAZZ (article first published : 2004-04-21)

May 6: Sounds of Simon Kerdachi. Simon Kerdachi is the bastion of Durban jazz; he established himself as a fine dependable and inspired performer decades ago. Still in love with music, writing, singing and playing his chosen instrument, the piano, Kerdachi dazzles with mature expertise.

May 13: Tobogo Trio. Led by rising jazz piano star Toboho Mohale, this trio brooks no compromises. Jazz straight, no chaser, is what you can expect to hear from these committed young men.

May 20: Tropical Heat. Flying the Latin American jazz colours is a Durban-based quartet that really knows the score. Lovers of the steamy rhythms that make the hips do adventurous things should not miss out on a dose of Tropical Heat, which is led by llyod Thumbadoo.

May 27: Reggie’s Four. Reggie Gcwensa is a young musician with a unique style of playing jazz keyboards. Trained on the Hammond organ to play church music, he blends chords, runs and stops in an extraordinary way. The rest of the band comprises veteran guitarist Isaac Mkhise, popular bass player Mdu Mbhele and drummer Bonga Mzimela.

Rivets also hosts a regular live gig on Fridays offering Late-Nite Afro-Jazz and Latino Jazz from 22h00 to 01h00. Entrance R10 pp
