Thanks very much for this. I have a vinyl rip of the Ibrahim / Ward duo concert, Kalisz Poland 1984 if this is of interest and someone could upload it on my behalf. Much more material of interest to visitors to this site available possibly.

Kinabalu I listened to the recording twice. Pure pleasure. The occasional cough took me back to a concert he played at the Market Theatre many moons ago. It started with an avante garde approach. Abdullah entered under a follow spot, doing Tai Chi, wearing a Kabuki mask and clutching a soprano saxophone, after which he sat down at the piano and launched into a solo performance using both instruments. The latter half of the set was with the band (still not performing his popular music). At the end he introduced the band, again playing solo piano whilst the audience left ...the drummer who was from Philly then took it upon himself to announce Abdullah Ibrahim with a tremendous drum solo, the others band members joined in and eventually so did Abdullah. Well, seven of us in the audience had remained and was treated to about an hour long jam session. What ensued was a spectacular sound journey. I "bumped" Abdullah a couple of years later in Cape Town and we chuckled together about what the rest of the audience had missed. Moral of the story is never leave before the band leaves the stage, I suppose. I hope you have more concert recordings to share.
