Album artwork for Mukashi: Once Upon A Time by Abdullah Ibrahim

Abdullah Ibrahim is South Africa's most distinguished jazz pianist and is respected throughout the world as a master musician. He turned 79 in October 2013 and 'Mukashi', which in Japanese translates as "once upon a time", is a spellbinding reflection of his life in solo, duo and quartet settings. 'Mukashi' sees Ibrahim joined by his companion of many years, reeds player Cleave Guyton, who combines sensitively with the pianist. However, Ibrahim also sought new textures for the recording, specifically fragile layers of sound. His addition of two master cellists with great expertise in all genres, Eugen Bazijan and Scott Roller, proves to be a master stroke as they fit seamlessly into this musical world and complement the other instrumentation wonderfully.
