(Andrew Young)

International recording artist and performer, saxophonist Andrew Young performs some of the best known, classic songs of all time from his new album, Diamonds, at the Rhumbelow Theatre. 

His soulful rendition of Cavatina, elicits a wave of emotion from even the most stoic listener. One simply has to listen to the hauntingly beautiful Summertime or Somewhere Over the Rainbow to realize that you are listening to one of the most complete saxophonists of today.

“Like old friends these melodies have continued to accompany and inspire me throughout my touring career and travels, both home and abroad. Every one of these songs on the album has been, and still is, so very special to me. Each song a classic, each song a Diamond!” says Young who will be accompanied by Paul Williams, one of Durban’s best loved pianist/keyboardists.
