Better known as Dollar Brand for many years, jazz pianist Abdullah Ibrahim left his home country of South Africa to escape apartheid in the early 1960s, and didn't return until the 1990s. I think what I enjoy most about his style of jazz is the wonderful melodies he creates with only a minimal number of notes. What many accomplish with avalanches of sound, he manages with restraint.
