SUNCOAST JAZZ ON JULY 27 (article first published : 2008-07-20)

The free Sunday Jazz Sessions at Suncoast taking place on the last Sunday of every month at 14h30 are creating a buzz. With the young student bands groomed to show off their skills and the main bands featuring top musicians the session has a reputation for delivery an afternoon of quality entertainment.

The session on July 27 will be opened by Levites, an instrumental band which plays various styles although these ambitious young musicians prefer performing fresh interpretations of jazz standards and original compositions. Formed by keyboardist Tumelo Komako at the beginning of 2007, Levites comprises Talent Mbatha on electric bass, Lebohang Mpota on drums and Mxolisi Mdlalose on saxophone. For this gig, they will be joined by keyboard player Siphiwe Cebekhulu, a former pianist of well known Afro-Jazz group Jika.

The featured band of the day is Mood Indigo, an instrumental quartet featuring Mozambican Zoko Dimande on lead guitar. With Bernard Mndaweni on electric bass, Sue Barry on keyboards and Karim Dariss on drums, Mood Indigo belie their name and send out some groovy shock waves with a repertoire that leans towards funky fusion and African jazz. Expect some of Dimande’s catchy original numbers as well.
