Biography

Dollar Brand changed his name to Abdullah Ibrahim, and preferred to be called this. Out of courtesy to him, and to help Last.fm, it would be good if listeners could change their tags in accordance.

    exactly, it is just historical accuracy to use the name as it appeared when the recording was released.

    "whats wrong with preserving a name for nostalgia's sake?" "nothing indeed - the music was brought out under this name after all!" Two things. First, he wanted his music to be issued (including reissues) under his new name, so it's a matter of courtesy to the artist.. Secondly, the point of Last.fm is in large part to bring together people who listen to the same artists; if a few people insist on listening to some of his music under a different name, then the listeners are split, defeating the purpose.

    I remember seeing Abdullah Ibrahim one night in Brighton. What a gig. He had this extraordinary way of playing piano - like Charlemagne Palestine meets Gospel. Never seen a piano played so well since. Like he was in a trance or something.
