Was sich für Jazzkenner wie ein Höchstmaß musikalischer Reduktion auf die Essenz des Ausdrucks ausmacht, ist für den jazzfremden Hörer einfach nur schöne Musik.

He turned 79 on October 9, 2013. That fact that someone has experienced a lot by this age goes without saying. However, this applies more for some people than for others.

He soon became known in South Africa, which was more dangerous than helpful as a member of a majority terrorized by a minority. He left his country in 1962, and Duke Ellington arranged for him to go to America a few years later. An international career started after that, which only few living jazz musicians can look back on. That fact that he played at the inauguration of Nelson Mandela after the abolition of apartheid was only logical.
