  • A Latin Musician Translates a Meeting of Cultures

    Wynton Marsalis New
    15 Nov 2014 | 6:03 am
    The reality that jazz and Afro-Latin music have been mixed for a century can sometimes lead to the myth that a musician trained in one tradition is effectively trained in the other, and that fluency runs both ways at all times, in all places. And so you might have looked at an advertisement for the Panamanian singer Rubén Blades collaborating with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, as he is doing through Saturday night at the Rose Theater, and thought, sure, Latin jazz. Not really, though. What they’re doing isn’t a glib middle ground. It’s a jazz band playing Afro-Latin dance music…
  • John Zorn - Valentines Day (Tzadik, 2014)

    Music and More
    17 Nov 2014 | 11:56 am
    We truly live in interesting times when the best rock 'n' roll album of the year (IMHO) is made by a group of open minded jazz musicians. The trio on this particular album is Trevor Dunn on bass and bass guitar, Marc Ribot on electric guitar and Tyshawn Sorey on drums. They are playing a series of John Zorn compositions, which are given individual names but also fall into a larger "Enigma" suite. With Zorn's bottomless imagination and the facility of these these first rate players, there comes music that truly defines genre, except for that which goes for the throat whether as a take no…

    All About Jazz is celebrating Coleman Hawkins' birthday today! Coleman Hawkins single-handedly brought the saxophone to the prominence in jazz that the instrument enjoys. Before he hit the scene, jazz groups had little use for the instrument. One player (forgot who) said, "with all due respect to Adolph Sax, Coleman Hawkins invented the saxophone." Hawkins, or "Bean", as he was known as, started playing cello at a young age before switching to the saxophone... Read more...

I wish some sort of box set or ultimate collection of his music would come out at the same time as the book. Benson is available now.

  • Thoughts On Taylor Swift.

    8 Nov 2014 | 2:21 pm
    Would someone please tell Taylor Swift, that if her music is not on Spotify, then I probably want be listening to her.And I say that realizing that she is not aiming her music at people in my demographic (50 somethings who mostly listen to blues music), but I have listened to her music in the past.  Posted her music in some of my other blogs, and even promoted some of her albums.  I really liked her earlier music.Her songs, before this last album, were in some of the playlist that I subscribe to, and I got to hear some of that music.  Too much like pop music for me though.Her…

    One of our heroes, the indefatigable trombonist Bob Havens, out in the open — melodic and extravagant — playing Irving Berlin’s ALWAYS at the first Allegheny Jazz Party (September 19, 2014) with the brilliant fraternal help of Keith Ingham, piano; Frank Tate, string bass; Ricky Malichi, drums: I especially admire Bob’s interplay with Frank about midway through. Don’t you wish we could have these gents playing ALWAYS?  I know I do.  “Meet you next year at the 2015 Allegheny Jazz Party” is what I say. May your happiness increase!Filed under: "Thanks A…
  • THE THINGS YOU MISS

    jazzlives
    18 Nov 2014 | 3:37 pm
    I am not nostalgic for my adolescence.  If you offered me time-travel back to my seventeenth year, I would rapidly although politely turn down the offer. But the experience of encountering music in days beyond recall (before the computer, before the internet) is something I miss because of its communal nature. I grew up in suburbia, and found perhaps a half-dozen people my age (all male) who were interested in jazz.  And when I had gotten my driver’s license, it was not difficult to go to someone’s house with a new record or a particular track one wanted to share or to hear.

    I call eBay one-stop jazz shopping.  Type in “jazz,” click on “Entertainment Memorabilia,” and watch the hours — and sometimes the dollars — fly. Treasures abound.  Of course, one has to pick delicately through the signed photographs of Sir Laurence Olivier in THE JAZZ SINGER, the forged Louis Armstrong signatures, the absurd pricing (“MEGA RARE!”) but surprises and delights await. Here are a few recent ones. Willie Lewis (leader of the Entertainers, a band most of us know because of its work with Benny Carter and Bill Coleman) — a…

    17 Nov 2014 | 5:53 am
    We live in a clangorous world.  You don’t have to live across the street from a dance studio specializing in zumba (as I do) to know this. The collective tempo we have created for ourselves is very quick, the volume level is high, the intensity is fierce.  Often all I want to hear is the sound of people singing through their instruments, leaving those rapid-fire flurries of notes for another time.  I don’t mean “smooth jazz”; rather, Ben Webster or Teddy Wilson playing a ballad; the Basie rhythm section; a Herb Ellis blues. This is not a grumpy complaint about these…

  • John Zorn - Valentines Day (Tzadik, 2014)

    17 Nov 2014 | 11:56 am
    We truly live in interesting times when the best rock 'n' roll album of the year (IMHO) is made by a group of open minded jazz musicians. The trio on this particular album is Trevor Dunn on bass and bass guitar, Marc Ribot on electric guitar and Tyshawn Sorey on drums. They are playing a series of John Zorn compositions, which are given individual names but also fall into a larger "Enigma" suite. With Zorn's bottomless imagination and the facility of these these first rate players, there comes music that truly defines genre, except for that which goes for the throat whether as a take no…
  • Aki Takase/Alexander Von Schlippenbach - So Long Eric! Homage to Eric Dolphy (Intakt Records, 2014)

    12 Nov 2014 | 4:02 pm
    The fiftieth anniversary of the release of Eric Dolphy's ultimate masterpiece Out to Lunch and his tragic death in Berlin have spurred a wave of attention to his work and a number of tribute albums including this one. Pianists Aki Takase and Alexander von Schlippenbach lead a large band in providing fresh arrangements of some of Dolphy's most well known pieces. They open with one of his early compositions, "Les" which features a spritely saxophone solo with horns riffing happily in the background. There is an interlude of bass clarinet, one of the instruments that Dolphy was a master of, and…
  • Sun Ra - My Brother the Wind, Volume 1 (Saturn, 1970)

    11 Nov 2014 | 4:56 pm
    This is another relatively rare Sun Ra LP that focuses on Ra's investigation into many of the new types of electronic keyboards coming into existence during the late 1960's. Sun Ra's love of science and technology extended far beyond his Afro-Futurist worldview into the use of the most up to date musical technology. There is a smaller band on this recording than many of his other Arkestra recordings, but the usual suspects like Marshall Allen and John Gilmore on saxophone make their presence felt. Moog synthesizers were all the rage in progressive rock circles at this time, but no one…

    Like any other band who's career has lasted this long, The Kinks have been anthologized in many ways, but surprisingly none seem quite as pithy and succinct as this one. While Legacy may pump these "Essentials" collections out as a cash grab for any band they have rights to, this one was really handled with care, by people who know and love the band. Of course, there are the early hits like "You Really Got Me" and "All Day and All of the Night" are here but just as importantly are the inclusion of the beautifully composed and arranged tracks from their extraordinary late '60's and early '70's…

She's also very funny, without ever being impolite or breaking her code for kindness. I know you've probably read plenty of stories about her being difficult, but she was only easy-going with me for the "House Call" column in today's Mansion section of The Wall Street Journal (go here) and open about everything.

    Songwriting used to pay a handsome living—and still does if the songs you wrote decades ago continue to be played today on the radio and TV and in the movies. Timeless hits have become annuities for songwriters and their families, since the royalty checks kept rolling in long after the songs slipped off the Billboard charts. Which "golden goose" singles have earned writers the most money? You may be surprised by the list. Jimi Mentis in Athens sent along this BBC documentary that reveals the hottest hits with the biggest paydays...

Bill was accompanied by singer Holli Ross, singer/bassist Jim Ferguson and pianist Carlton Holmes. It was an extraordinary evening—so extraordinary that I wondered whether anyone was recording it. It turns out the school videotaped the concert and has made it available at YouTube. Before I show it to you, a few words about Bill and why he's such an inspiration.
