I urge friends to see Soli Philander’s new show at the Baxter Theatre till 29 July at 7.30pm

I really do urge friends to see Soli Philander new show at the Baxter Theatre.

I saw the show last night with my wife Razia Myers and Kamla Pillay and Prashant Jugdeesh .

The show is a real hard look at Cape Town – warts and all .
It is filled with humor .erudite points and sadness with reflection and beauty all put together with a wonderful narrative.

The narrative holds the whole piece together .One man on stage holding you captive for 75 mins and making you think .

The show is no slapstick comedy routine .

75 mins of beautiful theatre . BEST WORK yet . If this show does not win awards I will be damned .

My tribute to my dear friend Ray Phiri that I put on Facebook

Rest in peace my friend Ray Phiri – I know you are at peace – I remember the Unfinished Story so well when I was at UCT and the lifelong friendship we developed .A giant friend has passed – I will not whisper in the deep .

I spoke to Hotstix Mabuse (who we manage ) this morning and he is devasted “He said to me Mart I have no words ” Sipho and Ray did so much work together and when they got together it was always fun.

I remember touring with Ray and working on the Unfinished Story tour at the Good Hope Centre in 1987.

My daughter Casey Barclay has heard “Whispers in the deep” countless times on the school run in the morning .Ray helped shaped my love and continued love of SA Music.

When my wife Razia Myers met Ray she remarked what a gentle soul he has and amazing aura.

Ray had so much wisdom to give and he gave willingly

The Tune Recreation Committee (TRC) announces their much-anticipated Album Launch Tour in July 2017.

This formidable quintet comprises some of Cape Town’s finest young musicians.

Featuring Clement Benny on drums, Nicholas Williams on bass, Keenan Ahrends on guitar, Mandla Mlangeni on trumpet and Mark Fransman on alto saxophone, flute and accordion.

The unit has performed to rousing applause in this year’s 18th annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival.

On their debut album Voices Of Our Vision the TRC has taken original tunes and reinvented nods from their influences to embracing vibrant underground music scene of drum and bass to Balkanology.

Fusing imported sounds and exporting to their own flavour, either going into a Ghoema -tinged feel or just improvising around the melody.

The T.R.C is the playground for the interrogation, assimilation and extended extemporization from the canon of South African jazz heritage.

Join us as we present material from our debut album Voices Of Our Vision at a venue near you
