Saxophonist Godfrey Mntambo got his start over 11 years ago playing in his high school orchestra where he developed interest and passion for both classical and jazz music.
From the knowledge he acquired from being taught music at school, he started playing with garage bands and gospel bands, as he was developing his sound.
He was later discovered by different cover bands, and so began his career as one of the most determined session musicians in Johannesburg.
He later moved on to playing clubs, playing standards with instrumental jazz bands.
Over the years, Godfrey has developed his own unique style of saxophone playing that reflects the many eclectic genres within the South African music environment.
He has become a significant voice within South Africa on the contemporary African and jazz music landscape.
