  4. Cape Jazz

    The Cape Jazz Band

    The CAPE JAZZ BAND ARE AN ALL-STAR GROUP, which draws its members from the cream of Cape Town’s jazz scene to perform a repertoire popular in South Africa. Though they use the word jazz, in fact the sound lies somewhere between world music and jazz. Either way this group is one that carries the torch of this cultural jewel of the Cape of Good Hope!

    The current line-up consists of a rhythm section led by veteran drummer Jack Momple (Pacific Express, Sons of Table Mountain, etc. – see separate bio) with Kyle Garry Shepherd on keyboards and Jonathan Rubain on bass, both of whom recorded for the Goema Captains and are members of Robbie Jansen’s regular group. Current soloists are, on guitar the Goema Captain himself, Mr Mac McKenzie, on sax and vocals Shaun Duval, on trumpet Alex van Heerden and on percussion another veteran, Steven Erasmus.

    This genre of music had been around for a long time before a tag was put on it. Perhaps the first real internationally recognised proponent of this music was Dollar Brand (Abdullah Ibrahim) and the first popular recording was Manenberg, made in the mid 1970’s. But the “jazzification” of Cape folk songs goes back to the time when troops of carnival revellers, known as the Klopse or Coons began to parade through the streets of Cape Town notably on Tweede Nuwe Jaar (the 2nd of January) to compete in the competitions that surround this event.

    Before the idea of this band came into being there was the release of a compilation album featuring a number of recordings under the title Cape Jazz. At the same time there was with the rise in popularity of the music of such live performers as Basil Coetzee and Robbie Jansen and their bands, Sabenza and the Sons of Table Mountain, respectively.

    The compilation album featured the two aforementioned sax players, guitarist Jonathan Butler, Morris Goldberg, the Tony Schilder Trio and others. It collected several lively tunes which were strongly reminiscent of the carnival music but which were all original compositions, this was proof that here was a separate genre of music.

    Several years passed and a bunch of new bands associated with the sound appeared. The Goema Captains headed by Mac McKenzie, The Hilton Schilder Group and Jansen’s Sons of Table Mountain were pulling in the fans. Interestingly enough there was a lot of cross membership between the groups. The same performers were performing in each others bands. In effect a large pool of players on each occasion with a different leader and composer.

    The beauty of this concept is that their show presents music that is mined from the rich vein of star composers in the genre – Abdullah Ibrahim, Robbie Jansen, Chris McGregor; Basil Coetzee, Errol Dyers, Hilton Schilder and his father Tony, Jonathan Butler, Mac McKenzie and more…

    The band is managed by Mountain Records who invite different experienced musicians and young stars to take part, very much on the basis that the different groups already do, but with the popular songs and variety of composers at centre stage!

    They will perform two club dates at Mannenbergs Jazz Cafe in Cape Town before departing for an engagement at the Genting International Jazz Festival in Malaysia in June.
