Recent Travels

This past January I toured  South  American with Hugh Masekela, Abdullah Abrahim ( Dollar Brand ),   Milton Nassiaminto  and Trinidadian artist Mavis John and Bebe Valdez from Cuba.  Also a very famous organ player from Bahia called Josef Wanderlee. We played in Sao Paulo, Bahia, Rio and most of the  larger venues around Ipanema and Vellarous. The tour also took us to Uraguay, Cartegena, Porta La Cruz, Margarita Island, then to Curacao, and then to Trinidad.  It was a very spiritual  and uplifting experience meeting with the two South African musical giants.

I just got back yesterday from The Tobago Jazz Festival.  Met and played with lots of great musicians: Smokey Robinson, Roberta Flack, Dionne Warwick, Erica Badu and many many more. The highlight of the  festival for me was backing up these great singers that I have always wanted to  meet.
