My Kinda Jazz tribute to Robbie Jansen

Robbie Jansen - A tribute

On Saturday night 11 September at 8 o’clock in his regular jazz show, My Kinda Jazz – now in its 5th year – Nigel Vermaas will pay tribute to the late Robbie Jansen, who died from complications arising from emphysema on 7 July 2010. He was 60 years old.

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE PROMO

To some Robert Edward Jansen was Robbie, to others – especially family – Robert or Mr Rob. To many of the young people here at Bush Radio, he was Uncle Robbie – and he was, of course, also known as the Cape Doctor, the Pied Piper and so on.

This pioneering musician was generous, honest, humble, and politically active, but also a compulsive talker and dedicated to his music – often at the expense of family until the last five years of his life, when his poor health was accompanied by a complete change in lifestyle and attitude.

The tribute, which takes us from The Rockets and Pacific Express via Oswietie to Robbie’s solo career, includes words from fellow musicians such as Errol Dyers and Jack Momple, from friends and family, and also some recordings from the funeral at His People Church on 17 July 2010, with several speakers, including Minister Trevor Manuel.

Nigel is particularly indebted to Akbar Khan, who set up most of the interviews for a video to be shown at an as-yet-unconfirmed memorial concert. Aki is also responsible for supplying the recordings he himself made of Robbie at a UDF rally in 1985.

The two-hour tribute includes some of Robbie’s iconic recordings including Kalahari Thirst and Freedom, Where Have You Been?

RIP – Robbie Jansen 1949 – 2010

A legend: Robbie Jansen

It is with great sadness that we at Bush Radio learnt of the passing of legendary Cape Town based musician Robbie Jansen.

Uncle Robbie as he was known to many of the young people at the station was always willing to come into the studio to talk about music and share some of the life lessons he had learnt.

His version of Mannenburg was used by several talk shows on Bush Radio through the years and even the  newsteam would use his music in their current affairs programme.

We will miss you.

Tonight (7 July 2010) on Bush Radio 89.5 FM from 20h00 – 22h00, Backchat’s Bassie Montewa will be host a special tribute programme to one of our true folk heroes. To share your feelings, thoughts and special memories call the studio on 021 448 6266.
