dc.identifier.citation How did Todd Matshikiza, the famed Drum magazine reporter, pianist, and composer of King Kong, the South African hit musical of the 1950s, straddle these multiple worlds in his music? Drawing on my own experience as a jazz pianist, I attempted to answer this question through a performed analysis of an unreleased solo piano recording by Matshikiza. As a performer, my research aims to be not only about, but in the culture of South African solo jazz piano tradition. en_ZA
