Tokkellaan is a composition by Jannie Hanepoot and is a dedication to two friends who passed away recently.
The tune was originally inspired by guitarist/composer Errol Dyers who was a key figure in the development of Cape Jazz from the 70’s onwards in Cape Town. Errol was one of the musicians who remained in Cape Town during the “struggle” years (together with Robbie Jansen, Basil Coetzee etc) while a number of compatriots went into exile in Europe and the USA.
Hanepoot was fortunate to have worked with Errol a number of times over the years, and his arrangement of Errol’s composition “Langery” is one of the pillars of the Hanepoot Big Band repertoire.
