Zim Ngqawana - Willisau 2009

As a tribute to Zim Ngqawana, who left this world much too early, here's his concert from 2009's Willisau Jazz Festival. Zim must be jamming in that other place with Kippie, Dudu, Mankunku, Manenberg and all the other cats that left us all too soon.

r.i.p. Zim Ngqawana

The great South African saxophone player Zim Ngqawana died Monday evening in Johannesburg, after suffering a stroke in the afternoon.

Check out this live video from the Guinness Jazz Festival or check out this beautiful tune from one of his albums.

What a huge loss.
