Robbie Jansen

Perhaps the greatest jazz showman of the Cape Jazz scene, the late Robbie Jansen burned out before he could realise his deserved international fame.
But in South Africa he was a star of the jazz stage from Cape Town to the Limpopo. A cultural warrior and band leader, he had a vision of his roots and this was reflected in his music. He appeared on numerous albums by such artists as Dollar Brand and Johnny Clegg and he left a legacy of three solo albums in his own name. All photos (c) Songwrights Publishers.
