Maya E. Spector listen to her on http://soundcloud.com/maya-elizabeth/my-little-simple song. The Jazz on the Vlei@ the Jolly Carp takes place on the 6th October at 6.00pm at the Jolly Carp. In a week where much of heritage day and week has been celebrated we think of all the Jazz muscians that have gone before and activists who have brought us to this point in our history. That we now have a collective heritage to celebrate as South Africans.
We particularly think of the late Robbie Jansen (Jazz muscian who died in July 2010) and Richard Ismail (activist who died January 2007). Both men had a kind of purity, humility and contributed to this heritage week in sharing their skills and talents generously! We thank God that we were blessed with such magnitude as South Africans
Who of the Capetonians can remember Jolly Carp? A place to go dance the night away, a venue to get married in or a birthday to celebrate. There was always unlimited parking, friends to meet and jazz music to jazz to. The Jolly Carp now has a hall at 38 Sasmeer Road, Sasmeer Estate, Retreat. Bookings for the Jazz festival can be done online @ www.webtickets.co.za/event.aspx?itemid=380035699 or you can call Janine on 071 259 4545 / Cinovea 074 198 8531/ Petrina 074 302 3254 or email: menngos@mweb.co.za for tickets @R80 per ticket!
Think tented ambience, lanterns, great slow food cooked by the vendors of the Jolly Carp Saturday market and Capetonians from all the different sectors of society
You will walk into a stretch tented area at the entrance, where vendors clustered with clothing, art and craft will greet you. Enter the foodhall where great traditional dishes and drinks will be served and a chill lounge to rest your feet. Then enter the Jazz festival arena. Souk -like, to embrace your senses and wow you with music to stroke your soul! There will be a raised deck to allow you peeks over Princess Vlei. The harmony of the wetland will assuage your 5 senses and you will feel inclined to sign the petition to retain this wetland as a green lung for all to enjoy from the Cape Flats to further afield.
The line -up includes Zelda Benjamin and her Quartet which includes Joel Benjamin!
Zelda is still singing at the young age of 72 years. She gyms every morning and is as fit as a fiddle which allows her to travel extensively for gigs and pleasure. She is known as the Doyenne of Jazz! Recently she sang at Leslie Kleinsmith’s wedding where he re-confirmed his vows to his new wife. Zelda will be belting out all your favorite songs!
Allan Denny, Rodney Erasmus of the Voyagers, Sam Pono on Sax and Oscar Armoed on jazz guitar. The Sons of Selassie and Vernon Castle on vocals with Allou April.
