South African saxophonist Mark Ginsburg has just finished his thesis on the influence of Jewish prayer modes on jazz musicians. So not only does the man play the sax like a musical wizard, he’s done his research too. We like. “Growing up in Cape Town I had three primary musical influences – ethnic African music, my role as a chorister at the synagogue and my older brothers, who played jazz morning, noon and night,” says the multi-faceted musician. Join Mark and his bandmates Greg Coffin (piano), Karl Dunnicliff (bass) and Tim Firth (drums) as they jazz up venue 505. If you are a jazz aficionado, this is a must-see and if you are not, there’s no better time to get yourself acquainted with this passionate and sexy musical genre.
