Who is Maurice?

I started getting excited about jazz when, as a boy of 12 I was taken by a friends older brother to the “Navigators Den” where the best jazz musicians of the day played every Saturday night..


The Early Years

I worked with the most notable musicians in London, notably Alan Clare, Kenny Napper, Pat Smythe, Brian Lemmon, Brian Dee, Mike and Ian Carr, Harold Mcnair, Don Rendal, Tommy Whittle and ended up playing with the Great Dudley Moore at the Establishment.



For the last 12 years I’ve been involved with the Winchester Hotel
where I have 15 different bands that perform separately every
Sunday for brunch. It’s a terrific success.


Winchester Mansions

For the past 12 years Maurice has been involved mainly in organising quartets for the exciting Winchester Brunches. These take place on Sundays between the hours of 11am - 2pm in their famous courtyard. It has the most amazing reputation for good food and soft but finger snapping music ... the ambiance is perfect.

Volume 2 of Maurice's CD "Jazz Brunch at Winchester Mansions" is released.

In Short...

Maurice Gawronsky's involvement in the international jazz scene began in the early '60's when he was continuously touring Britain and Europe. During that time he was drummer for, among others, Ronnie Scott, Graham Bond, Peter Ind, and Dudley Moore. He then performed at Ronnie Scott's Downbeat and the Establishment in London, as well as Danish and German clubs. He also appeared in the UK film "Sparrows Can't Sing" during this time. Following his British and continental sucesses, he went on to Scandinavia where he played with Stan Getz, the highlight of his musical career. Since his return to South Africa he has performed with the top local talents, and continues as an established force on the Cape jazz scene.
I used to sit every Saturday with Dexter Gordon drinking coffee and just discussing how beautiful the women were in Scandinavia.
