The Azeris: Vagif Mustafazadeh


He was born on March 16, 1940 in Baku, Azerbaijan.

He started playing jazz when it was still banned in Soviet Union as the “music of capitalists”.

He won first prize at the 8th International Competition of Jazz Composers for his composition “Waiting for Aziza” inMonaco in 1978, a year before he died.

He had a heart attack during his concert in Tashkent 30 years ago.

Both of his daughters Aziza and Lala are well-known musicians now.

This is the music he left for us.
