NAF JAZZ (article first published : 2006-03-20)

The National Arts Festival takes place in Grahamstown from June 29 to July 8. (See story in Festivals) The Main jazz programme is as follows:

Winner of the 2006 Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Music, Concord Nkabinde headlines the South African contingent at the Standard Bank Jazz Festival which incorporates the Standard Bank National Youth Jazz Festival. Bass-player, keyboardist and vocalist Nkabinde and the likes of trumpeter Feya Faku, saxophonist McCoy Mrubata and guitarist Jimmy Dludlu showcase a wide range of South African jazz styles.

Big names like Chris Collins (US) and the Paul van Kemenade Quintet (Holland) and selected musicians from Switzerland, Sweden, Canada, Argentina, France, Germany, Britain and the USA blast international ozone into proceedings and their collaborations with local musicians are shot through with surprise. A selection of top Eastern Cape jazz musicians also come to the party, sponsored by the Eastern Cape Department of Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture.

Booking opens in May. For more information on the National Arts Festival, contact 046 603 1103/1164, fax 046 622 3082 or e-mail: naf@foundation.org.za or visit www.nafest.co.za
