Flying in to Tripoli, Libya from a Germany rapidly cooling into autumn, the first message I received from my good friend Zam Johnson, a Native American Indian musician, composer and painter, was: “Hey Red, it’s fucking 34(°C) and I’m cooking in this birka!” So I knew everything was okay!
Zam (drums), along with Ulli Lenz (piano), Kubi Kubach (Bass), the other members of the 105 Lenz-Kubach-Johnson Jazz Trio, became the 1st jazz band to perform in Libya in 40 years, and the 1st international group to appear since the country’s revolution two years ago! Definitely an unforgettable trip for an unforgettable trio.
