McCoy Mrubata blew up a storm at last Sunday’s Jazz in the Native Yards gig at Guga S’thebe in Langa, a kasi of his birth.

More than 100 young, old timers and mam’ ladies who attended went down memory lane with favourite tracks like Icamagu from one of his CDS.

In between songs, McCoy told beautiful stories of his early music career playing in the Cape with some of the legendary jazz musicians like David Solomons and Roy Rhoode (who were in attendance) before he relocated to Joburg 30 years ago.

Mc Coy performed with a younger generation of Cape Town based musicians, Peter Ndlala on bass, Frank Paco on drums, pianist Blake Hellaby and guest artist was young trombonist Steven Sokuyeka. He had also performed at Moholo House in Khayelitsha.
