(Abdullah Ibrahim dedica ao seu mestre, Duke Ellington)

Born in Cape Town in 1934, Abdullah Ibrahim began his musical career in a vocal group at the age of 15, later moving to Europe, where he played piano under the name Dollar Brand. His international career was launched by Duke Ellington, who heard him play in a Zurich club. After converting to Islam in 1968, Brand changed his name to Abdullah Ibrahim. A prolific recorder of albums, he either plays alone or backed by bands and orchestras, and is considered one of the leading figures in contemporary jazz. The almost mystical lyricism of his music is a blend of American jazz and his African roots.
