Tonight at 8pm on Connected 2 Jazz on Bush Radio 89.5FM we celebrate another centenary: that of innovative trumpeter and bandleader Dizzy Gillespie, who, with Monk, Charlie Parker and a few others, was responsible for introducing bebop into jazz.

John Birks Gillespie was born on 24 October 1917.

Thelonious_Sphere_Monk_Flyer_1 copyThelonious Sphere Monk was born 100 years ago today. This bebop pioneer, who wrote some of the most memorable compositions in jazz, was a true original – as a person, as a pianist, as a composer.

In CONNECTED 2 JAZZ on Bush Radio 89.5fm tonight (Tuesday, 10 October 2017) at 8pm, Nigel Vermaas will profile this great musician.

We asked Natasha and Siviwe about their experience.

Natasha said; “The course was a great learning opportunity that sparked great conversations and debates around the arts. We learned a lot about writing and how to approach topics not only in the arts but journalism as a whole.”

“The CTIJF photojournalism workshop was interesting and informative, it taught me how to take pictures which one can write a story about. I learnt the pre & post production of pictures and how to set your camera for low light and taking pictures for events.” added Siviwe

Erika Lundi, from Cape Town

25/10/2012

On CONNECTED 2 JAZZ on Tuesday night at 8pm,  30th October, Nigel Vermaas will be devoting his whole show to singer Erika Lundi, whose excellent cd ERIKA LUNDI, FROM CAPE TOWN has been released on the Jazz Potjie label.

Erika sings jazz, rock, funk, soul, you name it, and has a great voice and a wonderful ear. “She should be far better known than she is”, says Nigel.

Erika will talk about her early days here and outside the country, and the crazy nature of “the jazz life”. Although she is intensely focussed on her music, Erika also loves to laugh – often at her own expense. “And she seems entirely without ego”, adds Nigel.

Her friend Michele Maxwell (well-known singer, pianist & actress) shares her insights about Erika, as does keyboard player and Jazz Potjie Producer Andreas Wellmann.

This two-hour-long feature will, of course, include lots of music, mainly Erika singing with musicians of the calibre of Mac McKenzie, George Werner, Hilton Schilder, James Kibby, Wesley Rustin, Andreas himself and many more, but there’ll also be a few tracks from U.S. artists who’ve influenced or mentored her, such as Nancy Wilson, Dizzy Gillespie and Kenny Barron.

“Whether she’s talking to you or singing, Erika really knows how to tell a story”, says Nigel, “and I know she’ll make this edition of CONNECTED 2 JAZZ a very special one.”

Nigel Vermaas is CONNECTED 2 JAZZ every Tuesday night from 8 to 10 on Bush Radio 89.5fm or online.
