Il programma radiofonico della BBC Jazz on 3 ospita stasera uno speciale dedicato a Louis Moholo-Moholo, con estratti da entrambi i concerti tenuti al London Jazz Festival lo scorso novembre, prima in duo con Keith Tippett e poi nel settetto - denominato Seven for 70, in omaggio ai settant'anni del batterista - con John Edwards, Ntshuks Bonga, Jason Yarde, Francine Luce, Henry Lowther e Alex Hawkins. La puntata inizia alle 23.15, ora locale, e rimane poi negli archivi web della radio per una settimana circa.

Jez Nelson presents the great South African drummer Louis Moholo-Moholo at a special concert in celebration of his 70th birthday. A founding member of legendary South African jazz groups The Blue Notes and The Brotherhood of Breath, Moholo-Moholo became a influential figure in the British jazz scene when he came to London in exile from apartheid during the mid-sixties. This concert sees him in a rare reunion duo with pianist Keith Tippett and a full ensemble including Jason Yarde, Henry Lowther and John Edwards. He also talks to Jez Nelson looking back over his eventful career.
