Abdullah Ibrahim (born Adolph Johannes Brand on 9 October 1934 and formerly known as Dollar Brand) is a South African pianist and composer. His music reflects many of the musical influences of his childhood in the multicultural port areas of Cape Town, ranging from traditional African songs to the gospel of the AME Church and ragas, to more modern jazz and other Western styles. Ibrahim is considered the leading figure in the subgenre of Cape jazz

The highlight from those concerts, a marvellous saxophone and trombone quartet version of that glorious, hymn-like tearjerker "The Wedding", remains the high-point on Sotho Blue, although everything here is amiable enough, if a little low-energy for much of the album. One can't help missing the original group's Carlos Ward on sax and flute.

Abdullah Ibrahim & Ekaya: Sotho Blue. Sono trascorsi quasi tre decenni da quando Abdullah Ibrahim presentò il progetto Ekaya nel disco omonimo del 1983: un settetto formato da tre sassofoni, un trombone ed una sezione ritmica con il leader al pianoforte.
