What Rashid wanted


Short post before I leave tonight for Tekwini, Jozi and Dubai mixing day job (telecommunications), night job (music archeologist) and pleasure. On the seminal Mannenberg LP Abdullah Ibrahim is quoted: "Is this what Rashid Vally wanted?". Rashid is of course the key independent jazz producer from the seventies whose family owned the Kohinoor store in downtown Johannesburg. Next week I hope to post some updated pictures from Kohinoor and of Rashid himself. It will be an honour to spend time with a man whose legacy to South African jazz is immeasureable.

As a fan of all things Abdullah, I look forward to the pics.
