This is the story of Kippie Moeketsi, one of the greatest jazz musicians of his time.  He was a member of the best bands of the 1950s and 1960 and he made many records.  Kippie had two problems: one was that he was a black man in South Africa during the years of apartheid, the other was that he was addicted to alcohol.  Only after his death was Kippie’s contribution to South African music fully recognized.

Illustrated with black and white photos.  Includes a list of some of Kippie’s recordings and a word list.  Adapted by Minky Schlesinger for advanced level readers.  Poster available (600-0061).
