27. Akbank Caz Festivali - Abdullah Ibrahim & Hugh Masekela

27. Akbank Caz Festivali The Jazz Epistles: Abdullah Ibrahim & Ekaya And Hugh Masekela Art Blakey’nin Jazz Messengers’ından esinle kurulan Jazz Epistles, Güney Afrika’nın ilk siyahi bebop caz grubuydu. 1959’da Jazz Epistle Verse 1 adlı ilk ve son albümlerini kaydeden ekip üyeleri 1960 Sharpeville Katliamı’ndan sonra soluğu Avrupa’da aldı. Bu sırada grubun piyanisti Abdullah Ibrahim (o günkü adıyla Dollar Brand) Zürih’te Duke Ellington tarafından keşfedildi ve onun desteğiyle ABD’deki ilk albümünü yayımladı. Çok geçmeden de New York’ta modern cazın baş besteci-piyanistlerinden biri oldu. 1970’lerde kaydettiği “Mannenberg” ve “Soweto” adlı parçaları Güney Afrika’daki barışçı cephenin ve Nelson Mandela’nın gönlünü fethetti. 1980’lerde kurduğu Ekaya (Yuva) adlı septetiyle Jazz Epistles ruhunu yeniden dirilten İbrahim, bu ekiple Ekaya (1983), African River (1989), The Mountain (1989) ve Sotho Blue (2010) adlı albümleri kaydetti. 2016’da ise, 56 yıllık ayrılıktan sonra, Jazz Epistles’tan dostu ve Güney Afrika’nın başka bir caz ikonu olan trompetçi Hugh Masekela ile yeniden bir araya geldi.

The group members, who recorded their first –and last– album Jazz Epistle Verse 1 in 1959, had to flee to Europe after the 1960 Sharpeville Massacre. Meantime, Abdullah Ibrahim (then known as Dollar Brand), the group’s pianist, was discovered in Zurich, by Duke Ellington; and he released his USA debut album by Duke’s support. Soon he was among the top pianist-composers of modern jazz arena in New York. His numbers “Mannenberg” and “Soweto”, recorded in the 1970’s, conquered the hearts of the Anti-Apartheid front and Nelson Mandela in South Africa. Reviving the spirit of Jazz Epistles, with a septet Ekaya (Home) he gathered together in the 1980’s, with this team, he recorded the albums Ekaya (1983), African River (1989), The Mountain (1989) and Sotho Blue (2010). And in 2016, after a 56-year-long hiatus, he reunited with trumpeter Hugh Masekela, another jazz icon of South Africa and his old colleague from the Jazz Epistles.
