Award-winning jazz musician Nduduzo Makhathini recently landed a record deal with jazz label Blue Note Records, which is one of the best labels in the world.
The American jazz record label also confirmed this on social media.
Makhatini says there is a connection with Blue Note Records history and how he thinks about the practice of jazz.
The earlier Blue Note artists and how Blue Note Records came together...it was all of these artists pushing boundaries and very particular about standing for blackness. I feel in many ways there is a big connection with that particular part of history and what I have been trying to project in my music.— Nduduzo Makhathini, Jazz musician
Makhathini is set to release new music under the label next year.
The recording was done last year and it features some really great South African musicians.— Nduduzo Makhathini, Jazz musician
