RIVETS JAZZ CLUB (article first published : 2005-10-11)

Jazz evenings take place every Thursday at Durban Hilton International.

October 6: Rivets Jazz Club in association with Awesome Africa presents De Nazeten, an exciting seven-piece group from Holland. With Robby Alberga on guitar, Klaas Hekman on piccolo soprano and bass saxophones and Keimpe de Jong on soprano and tenor saxophones, the band also includes Carlo Jones on alto saxophone and Patrick Votrian on trombone and sousaphone. Handling percussion is Gregory Kranenburg on drums and Chris Semmoh on skratyi. De Nazaten echoes the music of the European harmony and fanfare bands and the repertoire stems from the many forms of world/wind music, in which improvisation and dansability prevail!

October 13: Philani Ngidi Quartet. Durban’s finest electric bass player Philani Ngidi is known for his sensitivity and musicality when playing as part of the rhythm section. When placed in the limelight he delivers fine jazz with great originality; his playing is sincere and driven by his passion for good music. He will be joined by Neil Gonsalves on keyboards and Bruce Baker on drums.

October 20: Sabelo Masondo & Friends. Young bass player Sabelo Masondo links up with pianist Ndu Makhatini and drummer Ayanda Sikade to form a band that gives a personal interpretation of standards. He will also be drawing from a pool of vocalists, giving them a chance to reveal their talents. Masondo’s band will also be playing ‘some cool stuff’, in other words a fusion of Afro-Jazz and soul.

October 27: Lebohung’s Quartet. Drummer Lebohung Mathabeng has long since confirmed his reputation for versatility as he moves easily between soft brush work when accompanying singers to the robust sounds required by jazz driven African rhythms. He will be joined by his regular pianist Bonani Mambi and local session musicians to create an evening of jazz that both simmers and steams!
