Tonight I play the mighty Hugh Masekela - but not just as bandleader. As sideman, as composer, as gentle jazzer - plus some roaring Afro tunes. Also, a preview of a #Mabuta, a new outfit featuring @shanecoopermusic @bokanidyer @marlonwitbooi On #FineMusicRadio and streaming on fmr.co.za #finemusicradiostation #BraHughMemorial #BraHugh #HughMasekela #RIPHughMasekela #RIPBraHugh #AricanJazzPioneers #NtemiPiliso #liveradio jazzradio #AfricanJazz #southafricanjazz #southafricanmusic #nujazz #FelaKuti #BoneThruTheNose #Hope #Friends #LarryWillis

As a part of my project of collecting the #chisarecords catalogue, I’ve moved to collecting all the #jazzcrusaders slash Crusaders albums as well as the #monkmontgomery LPs. What’s best about these albums aren’t just the names on the covers but the liner notes. I love reading, for example, Monk Montgomery played his bass guitar on many of these albums or the Crusaders played back from on Masekela’s LPs. Chisa, I argue in my work, was a Black Power label. That being said, Chisa came apart like many Black Power formations, personal divisions, financial issues and drug abuse. However, just like those institutions, their legacy will never die, it forever changed Black music forever. In that end, they were not a failure. They succeeded far beyond what folks expected. I feel a spiritual connection to this project as #HughMasekela has recently passed and now #nduguchancler is gone too. #ripndugochancler #riphughmasekela #thecrusaders #southerncomfortlp #bluethumbrecords #westcoastjazz #joesample #southafricanjazz
