Now happily resettled in South Africa, Masekela assembled a seven-piece group there and recorded an informal guided tour of his life and repertoire live in Washington D.C.'s Blues Alley. The songs stretch over a period of nearly five decades and several countries and composers -- from an incantatory Alexandria township tune, "Languta," which he learned in 1947, to a fairly ordinary piece written by keyboardist Themba Mkhize in 1993, "Until When." "Abangoma" starts the CD out on the right track, hearkening back to the early fusion of African music and jazz that Masekela was playing back in 1966. "Mandela (Bring Him Back Home)" may have lost some of its political raison d'etre by 1993, but it remains a good tune, and the band plays it with enthusiasm. Yet Masekela's biggest hit, "Grazing in the Grass," sounds a bit tired in this live rendition. There are two songs by the prolific South African composer Caiphus Semenya, "Nomali" and the driving "Ha Le Se," and the late Nigerian idol Fela Anikulapo-Kuti is represented by "Lady." Clearly the resolution of the political struggle in South Africa had mellowed Masekela; he sounds happier, perhaps less fiery, certainly more polished and refined on the trumpet and flugelhorn than when he started out. But when you hear his bitter narration on "Stimela," describing the life of formerly conscripted coal miners, you suspect that not all of the old wounds have healed.

Betty Davis, la panthère funk

Sans elle, point de Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse ou Janelle Monáe ! Partie au paradis le 9 février 2022, Betty Davis reste la pionnière des soul sisters félines. La déesse funk par excellence. Egalement celle qui offrit l’électricité à un certain Miles Davis, dont elle sera l’éphémère épouse. Mais qui étais-tu Betty ?

John Coltrane, le souffle continu(e)

Le 17 juillet 1967, le saxophoniste américain s’éclipsait à seulement 40 ans, laissant derrière lui de nombreux enregistrements qui ont chamboulé l’histoire de son instrument, celle du jazz mais aussi de la musique du XXe siècle.

MPS : le jazz venu de la Forêt-Noire

Le label de jazz MPS fêtait en 2018 son 50e anniversaire. Nous avions à cette occasion interrogé Andreas Brunner-Schwer, fils du fondateur Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer, sur ses rencontres, les premiers enregistrements du label et son unicité.
