Whenever I do searches online for South African trumpet players, Feya Faku comes up as one of the top players.
Marcus Wyatt is one of the top jazz trumpet players in South Africa. Here he is performing with the University of Cape Town Symphonic Jazz Orchestra. Beautiful writing and playing.
Not only do I love recordings of trumpet players performing without accompaniment, as a teacher I also regard them as some of the most important listening we can do. Here we have Mandla Mlangani in an interview and short solo performance.
Hugh Masekela is probably the most famous South African jazz trumpeter. Here he is performing with the Dave Matthews Band.
