Short intro

Autobiography is a live recording by pianist and flautist Abdullah Ibrahim also known as Dollar Brand, taken from a June 18, 1978, concert in Switzerland. On the recording, Ibrahim recalls his childhood in South Africa through the songs he learned then, progressing to his own compositions in adulthood. Originally released as a two-disc LP set, the album has since been reissued on CD. 13 tracks 94:41. Abdullah Ibrahim born 1934, Cape Town, South Africa, formerly known as Adolph Johannes Brand, and as Dollar Brand from a popular brand of cigarettes, is a South African pianist and composer. His music reflects many of the musical influences of his childhood in the multicultural port areas of Cape Town, ranging from traditional African songs to the gospel of the AME Church and ragas, to more modern jazz and other Western styles.

He was given the Dollar nickname due his regular purchases of jazz LPs from US-American soldiers as a youth, and when he converted to Islam in 1968 he changed his name to Abdullah Ibrahim - although he continued to perform and record under the Dollar Brand monicker for some years thereafter. His Mannenberg composition from 1974 is widely considered to be a seminal piece of South African heritage and, at times, been dubbed an unofficial South African anthem.
