© Adolfo Valente photography
From Zimphonic Suites (2001). Record Label: Sheer Sound
“Zim Ngqawana is one of South Africa’s leading jazz musicians. In addition to leading his own band, Ingoma, Ngqawana has played with such influential jazz musicians as Max Roach, Keith Tippett, Abdullah Ibrahim, and Hugh Masakela and with top-notch modern dance ensembles, the Free Flight Dance Company and the Moving Into Dance Company. South African daily newspaper the Star referred to Ngqawana as “the most visible, hardest working, younger man in jazz…” Graig Harris (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/zim-ngqawana-mn0000966362). At 20 years of age, Zimasile Ngqawana, did not know how to play a flute, a saxophone or a piano. At 42, he is a well-rounded multi-instrumentalist with plenty of upper crust jazz education and exposure to renowned characters such as Max Roach, Wynton Marsalis, and Abdullah Ibrahim, as well as transcontinental tours.
Personnel: Zim Ngqawana – soprano, alto, tenor saxophones, c-flute, piccolo flutes, harmonica, bicycle bells, chimes, whistles, vocals; Andile Yenana – piano; Herbie Tsoaeli – contrabass; Kevin Gibson – drums/percussion.”Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth…. Meaning lies in us.”_____Marianne Williamson_____
