Some jazz sounds are set to soothe souls on Sunday when Trafalgar Park in Woodstock hosts the Lazy Sunday Jazz session.

While it may be a lazy Sunday for some there’s nothing lazy about the talents that will be featured on the bill.

Christopher de Vries of the Woodstock Live organisation says the concert, which starts at noon, is wrapping up this year’s series of concerts and is a celebration of jazz-influenced sounds from Cape Town.

He explains that this is the fourth event in the landmark park in the area. On Sunday they aim to pay homage to the past, present and future sounds of the Cape jazz scene.

“There is a collaboration that will feature Paul Hanmer (keyboards) and McCoy Mrubata (sax), former Capetonians now living in Johannesburg, that will show people why they have become icons of the South African music scene,” he says.

“Hilton Schilder needs little introduction to our stage and he will be featuring with Mark Fransman and Claude Cozens.

“Trumpeter Lee Thompson and his group are also on the bill with our new Woodstock Live ambassadors also adding their sound to the mix.”

With vocalist Auriol Hayes and Top Dog completing the bill De Vries adds that another bonus for guitar lovers is the appearance of Derek Gripper, global traveller and Cape Town homeboy who does this Woodstock gig between performances in New York, London and Bamako as he continues his mission to reshape and reinterpret guitar sounds from Africa and the world.

V Tickets for the event are R100 on Webticket or R120 at the venue.
