Germany 2001 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Klosterruine Eldena, Greifswald, Germany; July 7, 2001. Excellent (NDR?) FM recording.

If you are in a meditative mood and want some “quiet” time, this solo piano piece might be it. South African Abdullah Ibrahim (born Adolph Johannes Brand aka Dollar Brand) also shows his influences here with his medley/improvisation of original, Ellington and Monk tunes.

Thanks to Dan who shared the show on the net in 2006.

  2. I get to be the first to say: BRILLIANT POSTING! Though esteemed amongst those who know, Abdullah Ibrahim (Dollar Brand) so deserves far more recognition than he’s got. By this gesture, I hope his talent gains a few more appreciative ears. –Man, between Johnny and Abdullah, this has been a week for unexpected treasures.

  3. Thank you so much for this; Ibrahim is one of the most lyrical, beautiful players out there, a seriously under-recognized talent.

  5. magnificent. I’ve been a fan since way WAY back in the 60s when he was simply “Dollar Brand”, when I first heard him play.

    one of the greatest, most understated but innovative and accomplished jazz musicians of our time.

    Many thanks for posting this
