Description DM2000062901:SAED:MUSIC:1955/56 - University Rag Ball - Jazz has got to come right from the heart. It seems like yesterday since we last palyed the kazoo. Yet we played it as far back as 1929. You bought it for a sixpence, or you stretched a piece of tissue paper accross a comb, and blew. Later we added the guitar to the sound of the kazoo. Here too we were looking for simple sounds. We were looking for jazz. Later we fumbled along at all kinds of instruments, Fiddling away to find jazz. But since those early days, we have discovered that there is much more to jazz than fumbling and fiddling away at simple musical sounds. We discovered that we have to learn the simple steps, study hard, adding all the time to our natural musical gift. - Article written by Todd Matshikiza, 1959 - edited to serve as caption to this picture, original date of picture publication unknown.
