TOP MUSOS AT ZULU JAZZ LOUNGE (article first published : 2007-02-16)

Afrocentric, with Nthabiseng on vocals, feature as ZJL's special Valentine's Day star attraction on February 14. Drawing inspiration from the likes of the great Roy Hargrove, and Herbie Hancock, this crack student band sounds the very essence of a professional outfit.

Noted UKZN Jazz lecturer George Mari shows his paces at ZJL on February 15. George is a well-known presence in local jazz circles, with three popular CD's to his credit, along with high profile live collaborations with the likes of Abdullah Ibrahim, Melvyn Peters and many others.

The female dominated band Mini Legends take the stage on February 16. Expect hot stuff from these artists, who have worked with frontline performers such as Brian Thusi, Judith Sephuma, Letta Mbuli, Busi Mhlongo and many others.

Hlengiwe Zungu is in line for February 17. Hlengiwe is fast becoming a hot property vocalist on the scene, appearing regularly with luminaries such as Brian Thusi and others. She has studied at UKZN and has performed at all the leading jazz venues in town.

February 22 sees popular bass player Bongani Nkwanyana, Sipho Gumede's right hand man, as ZJL's featured artist.

Following her appearance at the venue earlier this month, Andile Mseleku makes a popular return on February 23 and the renowned jazz muso Tony Rezac caps the week's music making at Zjl on February 24.

The Zulu Jazz Lounge is situated in the Playhouse complex on Durban's Smith Street, and is fast becoming the city's premier jazz venue. Savour the best in local and international jazz at this world class facility, which provides a platform for the most promising of our regional, up and coming talent.

A cover charge of R20 will be asked for each event, with starting times set for 2h100. The ZJL now has a parking arrangement with the Albany Grove Parkade, offering 24 hour security on site, and the ZJL doormen will gladly escort patrons back to their vehicle. Simply take a ticket, drive up the ramp and turn left, then proceed down to park on the ground floors. Present your ticket upon entry at the Zulu Jazz Lounge for validation. Please note ZJL is also open on Wednesdays, but is presently not open on Sundays.
