Nice Coat & All That Jazz

Tourists from abroad, from other parts of Mzansi and even a large number of Capetonians often only know the city you see in brochures.
Soli Philander takes you on a journey through the Mother City using rhyme and poetry delivered in a conversational style delving into the nitty-gritty of what makes Cape Town an experience that is much more intricate than any brochures can ever do it justice.

Smoortjies en Smoothies is intended to take us on journey of tastes and flavours and to get the event we had to take a little journey to the town of Paarl. As we were winding our way through the beautiful rural scenery, we were wondering how anyone not familiar with the area would even find the venue but once we arrived at the Old Mill Theatre, we realised that the trip was going to be all worth it.


No, Smoortjies & Smoothies is not a food festival but it was definitely a feast filled with musical flavour.

Lazy Sunday Jazz, the fourth Woodstock Live outing in Trafalgar Park, aims to acknowledge and celebrate the past, present and future sounds of the Cape jazz scene, featuring musicians who have their roots in and share a love of this ever-evolving genre.

Creshwell October at a Live Performance - Picture from his Facebook PageA Port Elizabeth artist whose expansive musical gift has earned him accolades in the R&B, Contemporary Jazz and Gospel Music fields grabbed the attention of Los Angeles based music awards organisation, The Akademia.

We at bruinou.com took some time out to listen to some of Creshwell October's music and watch a few of his videos. We immediately noticed some influences of other great South African Jazz Guitarists like Ernie Smith, Jonathan Butler, Jimmy Dludlu and Allou April but those influences are subtle and understated, which we think is great, because that means Creshwell has evolved a style of his own.
We think Creshwell is definitely on par with some of the best around the world.
