Abdullah Ibrahim set for four UK dates

Abdullah Ibrahim tours the UK for four nights this November, including a set at the EFG London Jazz Festival with his septet Ekaya

Pianist Abdullah Ibrahim, once described in the Guardian as “a laid-back South African reincarnation of Thelonious Monk”, plays four English dates shortly after his 80th birthday on 9 October.

He appears both with his new trio (Cleave Guyton, reeds and Noah Jackson, cello) and his township-jazz septet Ekaya at London Royal Festival Hall as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival (15 November) before going on to Saffron Hall, Saffron Walden (trio, 16), Sage Gateshead (solo, 19) and Leeds Howard Assembly Room (solo, 20).
