Abdullah Ibrahim Hoddinott Hall, Cardiff Thursday

The iconic South African pianist's Solotude was our album of the year in 2021: No jazz musician alive is as Ellingtonian as Abdullah Ibrahim. It's the sheer touch and the quality of the compositions often notable for their simplicity for instance ‘Blue Bolero' in addition to that weight and mastery of timing he shares with Duke, that works like the most benign of charms. There is so much grace throughout it's part of the spell. Solutude put out by King's Cross jazz indie Gearbox is a late-period masterwork that speaks to the listener on a personal, human, level.
