Formed in the 1950s by the union of two legendary South African jazz bands and inspired by Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, The Jazz Epistles were young, swagger, smart exponents of bop and cool-famous for their late-night jam sessions. Following the 1960 Sharpeville Massacre and the tightening of apartheid oppression, the sextet scattered to Europe and North America, pursuing individual careers. Over half a century alter these two original members, both pioneers of modern jazz, reunite for a special tribute concert.
