Robbie Jansen and
The Sons of Table Mountain

[Robbie Jansen Pic]

Having recently celebrated 30 years in the music business, Robbie Jansen isone of the Cape's most accomplished musicians. An alto saxophone and flute virtuoso, he is also a respected composer and arranger, and is at the forefront of what over the last few years has become internationally known as Cape Jazz, culminating with the release in 1989 of his solo album "Vastrap Island" in South Africa, Germany and the UK. Playing to packed houses in Cape Town's jazz clubs, Robbie and his dynamic young band continue to develop his interpretation of Cape Jazz: a fusion of musical influences ranging from traditional Cape malay goema and African rhythms to funk and salsa.

Performance time - 8pm, Friday 9th (BAT Theatre).
