THE CRYPT JAZZ JAM
This week’s jam guest is Ramon Alexander. Ramon is a qualified winemaker, but decided to pursue a career in music. He has been playing piano since the age of ten and is classically trained. At the age of 15 he started playing his 1st gig as a lounge pianist. He received his first jazz training under the supervision of Merton Barrow at the Jazz Workshop. Ramon has performed and recorded with numerous artists in a variety of genres. Ramon is also an educator and lectures Jazz in the Certificate Programme presented at the University of Stellenbosch.
Every Tuesday great musicians from all over the Cape – and also from overseas – come to The Crypt for our weekly jam sessions always with a special guest and The Crypt’s jam band, Alvin Dyers- guitar, Roy Davids-drums and Tino Europa-bass.
