Abdullah Ibrahim‘s Mantra Modes : :

@last.fm : He first received piano lessons at the age of seven, was an avid consumer of jazz records brought by American sailors, and was playing jazz professionally by 1949.

@Discogs : He was given the Dollar nickname due his regular purchases of jazz LPs from US-American soldiers as a youth, and when he converted to Islam in 1968 he changed his name to Abdullah Ibrahim — although he continued to perform and record under the Dollar Brand monicker for some years thereafter.
