BRI­TISH acid jazz band Incog­nito, and South African acts The Soil, Alis­tair Izo­bell, Claire Phillips, esp Young Le­gends win­ner Jar­rad Rick­etts, DJ Eazy and the All Star Band will be part of the an­nual Cape Town In­ter­na­tional Jazz Fes­ti­val (CTIJF) Free Com­mu­nity Con­cert on March 20.

Fes­ti­val or­gan­is­ers esp Afrika have opted to bring the con­cert a day ear­lier than usual due to the pub­lic hol­i­day this year. This then gives fes­ti­val go­ers the op­por­tu­nity to come out and en­joy them­selves on the eve of Hu­man Rights Day ahead of the main fes­ti­val set for Cape Town In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre on March 23 and 24.

“I am de­lighted that our stead­fast fes­ti­val-go­ers, as well as those at­tend­ing for the first time, have such a wealth of tal­ent from which to cre­ate their per­sonal mu­si­cal ex­pe­ri­ences and we look for­ward to shar­ing these mo­ments with our au­di­ence,” CTIJF fes­ti­val di­rec­tor Billy Domingo said.

Kick­ing off the pro­ceed­ings will be the CTIJF’s All Star Band, made up of a se­lec­tion of ta­lented young mu­si­cians drawn from the CTIJF mu­sic and ca­reer work­shops, as well as esp YoungLe­gends 2018 win­ner Jar­rad Rick­etts, Alis­tair Izo­bell and Claire Phillips who will de­liver a col­lec­tion of funk, R&B and fu­sion per­for­mances.

Guests will also be en­ter­tained with a range of town­ship jazz, hip hop and Afro-pop, with three-part a cap­pella group The Soil.
