    1 Sep 2014 | 12:21 pm
    Spike Wilner, pianist, clubowner, and a true Disciple of Swing, has another bold idea: a new New York City jazz club that presents genuine improvised music in kind settings. Simple facts first: the club opens on September 3, 2014.  It will thrive in the basement of 163 West 1oth Street, steps away from the happily thriving SMALLS, co-piloted by Spike and Mitch Borden.  (For those who worry about such things, both clubs are a few minutes’ walk from the Christopher Street / Sheridan Square station on the Seventh Avenue subway line. And it’s a calm area to be in.) The club is a…
  • Coltrane: a Biography by Cuthbert Simpkins (Black Classics Press, 1975)

    Music and More
    25 Aug 2014 | 9:20 am
    There have been a great many biographies of John Coltrane since his death in 1967, but this is one of the most interesting. This is Simpkins' only book (he would go on to become a noted medical doctor) but he did very thorough research using third-party sources and in-person interviews. He also interjects his own poetry, ideas and commentary into the narrative which keeps things quite interesting. He begins by covering standard biographical material like Coltrane's childhood and beginnings as a musician, but things really begin to kick into gear after he turns professional, which provides…

    All About Jazz is celebrating Horace Silver's birthday today!

    What is Jazz in Marciac, but the marriage of swing and Gascony; a brief testimony to the eternal love story between France and Jazz? This is the story that Wynton Marsalis began to tell in partnering with another frequent JIM visitor, Richard Galliano.vThe union was a tribute to two emblematic figures: Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf. Two extraordinary women, born in the same year (1915), in the same misery, both with grand and tragic fates, and most especially, with two ways of singing this blue soul that African Americans call the blues. For the American trumpeter, like the French…

  • THE MIGHTY MEZZ: A NEW NYC JAZZ CLUB OPENS (September 3, 2014)

    jazzlives
    1 Sep 2014 | 12:21 pm
    Spike Wilner, pianist, clubowner, and a true Disciple of Swing, has another bold idea: a new New York City jazz club that presents genuine improvised music in kind settings. Simple facts first: the club opens on September 3, 2014.  It will thrive in the basement of 163 West 1oth Street, steps away from the happily thriving SMALLS, co-piloted by Spike and Mitch Borden.  (For those who worry about such things, both clubs are a few minutes’ walk from the Christopher Street / Sheridan Square station on the Seventh Avenue subway line. And it’s a calm area to be in.) The club is a…
  • BACK IN NEW YORK / A CURE FOR SPIRITUAL JET-LAG

    jazzlives
    31 Aug 2014 | 11:26 am
    I arrived back in New York late last night. With no offense to my fellow urbanites and suburbanites, the word that would describe my return is RELUCTANTLY. Unfortunately, I couldn’t muster up the good cheer of this Hero as imagined in a beautiful drawing by Thomas B. Allen: Even in enhanced stereo (!) Louis looks young and healthy. But it will take a while for me to look close to that. The Beloved is 3000 miles away. My apartment has serious water damage . . . precious objects became damp, musty — some can’t be repaired. I feel as if spiritual mildew is creeping up on me,…
  • HONORING JOE WILDER, THREE WAYS

    jazzlives
    31 Aug 2014 | 9:37 am
    When I learned that the magnificent musician and lovely man Joe Wilder had left us, I wrote this: I’ve learned this morning (May 9, 2014) from his friend and co-author Ed Berger that trumpeter and jazz pioneer Joe Wilder has died.  He leaves a huge hole in the world. There was a flurry of false information back in February, and I spread what was erroneous bad news, but now it is sadly true. Joe was not only a shining example to other musicians; he shone for us all. He was a gentleman in the way the word is no longer used: someone whose concern for his fellow human beings was strong.
  • PAPER EPHEMERA FROM THE CONDON EMPIRE: 1947 / 1960; December 5, 1942

    jazzlives
    29 Aug 2014 | 9:04 pm
    This I know.  It’s an inscribed first edition of Eddie Condon’s 1947 autobiography, WE CALLED IT MUSIC. But beyond that.  “It’s warm here now,” Condon writes to Lou in 1947.  Then, thirteen years later, Lou inscribes the book to Woody or Woodie.  I don’t think this is Woody Herman, although the Lou could be Robert Louis McGarity: Then, another (facing?) page from the same book: Some famous names: ME TOO, Bobby Hackett; Bob Wilber; pianist Graham Forbes.  Who was Thomas Golden? Bob Pancrost? Any detectives out there, ready to leap on these clues?
  • A NEW BIX PROJECT

    jazzlives
    28 Aug 2014 | 9:05 pm
    Few jazz musicians stir up as much longing and yearning as Bix Beiderbecke. This isn’t an aesthetic judgment on his achievement as measured against anyone else’s, but I sense that he is so powerfully missed by so many people. Although his recorded legacy is not by any means the most brief, those who love his music both revel in its beauties and wish with all their hearts that there would be more. Nearly seventy-five years after his final appearance in a recording studio, it seems unlikely that more will surface — although more unusual events have happened. So those who…

  • The Bad Plus - Inevitable Western (Okeh, 2014)

    30 Aug 2014 | 3:05 pm
    The Bad Plus: bassist Reid Anderson, drummer Dave King and pianist Ethan Iverson have become such an established group on the jazz scene that it is hard to remember the controversy they engendered when they first started. They have grown in many ways since then, from rock covers to ambitious projects like The Rite of Spring, to albums like this which is composed of all original material. What makes their music continuously interesting is their use of dynamics, whether from song to song or within each song itself. On this album, the music begins with the low key and emotional "I Hear You" but…
  • Oliver Lake - The Complete Remastered Recordings on Black Saint and Soul Note (Black Saint/Soul Note, 2013)

    27 Aug 2014 | 9:11 am
    Alto saxophonist Oliver Lake has been one of the most talented yet underrated musicians of the post-Coltrane era. He is a charter member of the influential collectives The Black Artists Group and The World Saxophone Quartet, and lately the exciting group Trio 3. This collection focuses on the work he did as a bandleader for the Italian record labels Black Saint and Soul Note in the 1980’s and 90’s. The legendary musician Eric Dolphy is a huge influence on Lake’s playing and this is evidenced here on all the albums but especially the tribute albums Dedicated to Dolphy and The Prophet. On…
  • Coltrane: a Biography by Cuthbert Simpkins (Black Classics Press, 1975)

    25 Aug 2014 | 9:20 am
    There have been a great many biographies of John Coltrane since his death in 1967, but this is one of the most interesting. This is Simpkins' only book (he would go on to become a noted medical doctor) but he did very thorough research using third-party sources and in-person interviews. He also interjects his own poetry, ideas and commentary into the narrative which keeps things quite interesting. He begins by covering standard biographical material like Coltrane's childhood and beginnings as a musician, but things really begin to kick into gear after he turns professional, which provides…
  • John Coltrane - Sideman: Trane's Blue Note Sessions (Blue Note, 2014)

    23 Aug 2014 | 12:55 pm
    The period 1956-1957 was a transformative year in the life of John Coltrane.  He became clean of narcotics during this period, experienced a spiritual awakening and began his explosive rise to greatness that would mark the final decade of his life. This collection is bit of a misnomer as it places his name to the fore, when in fact he was a supporting actor in album by Paul Chambers, Johnny Griffin and and Sonny Clark. Concord took the same new wine/old bottles approach with their collection of Coltrane's sideman work for Prestige called Side Steps. This collection includes the albums…
  • The Core Trio with Matthew Shipp (self produced, 2014)

    21 Aug 2014 | 7:00 am
    If there were matches made in free jazz heaven, The Core and Matthew Shipp would certainly fit the bill. The musicians are Seth Paynter on saxophone, Joe Hertenstein on drums, Thomas Helton on bass with special guest Matthew Shipp on piano. But the key is that Shipp doesn't seem like a guest at all, he sounds fully integrated, like he was with the band from the beginning. The music reaches out for you from the get-go. It's one forty minute plus unnamed improvisation. Shipp's piano is deep and rich, taking the group into an urgent fast section to start. They are on a high wire over the abyss…

  • 13 CD Discoveries of the Week

    Marc Myers
    1 Sep 2014 | 9:05 pm
    Apologies for the delay in hipping you to my favorite CDs. It has been tough keeping up with all the incoming discs and carving out time to audit and review. So I think I'll try an experiment—keeping reviews a little tighter. Here are 13 CDs that knocked me out that I think you'll enjoy [Above, Jack Nicholson]: Freda Payne—Come Back to Me Love (Mack Avenue). Before Payne had a hit in 1970 with the soul-pop Band of Gold, she was an up-and-coming jazz singer. Here, Payne returns to the music that brought her to the dance, and the results are spectacular. Payne's voices is in…
  • Al Belletto: 'Sounds and Songs'

    Marc Myers
    31 Aug 2014 | 9:05 pm
    In the 10-inch jazz LP era between 1952 and 1955, record companies were hungry for arrangers who could write for small groups. With the longer recording format, labels needed to fill out albums without breaking the bank on large bands. So they sought out arrangers who could make 5 to 10 instruments swing and sound twice that size. The best of these small-group arrangers included Dave Pell, Lennie Niehaus, Gigi Gryce, Bill Holman, Manny Albam and Gerry Mulligan. One name you probably don't know is Jack Martin, a trumpeter in a quintet and sextet led by Al Belletto, a clarinetist who could…

    29 Aug 2014 | 9:05 pm
    It's hard to turn on cable TV or open an editorial page these days without a female pundit or columnist using the expression "man up" to make a point. As most readers know, I love women and think they should be running the world. But the "man up" directive is as offensive as when men use the word that rhymes with itch to mock or undercut women. Both terms are intended to cast a member of the opposite sex as less than masculine or feminine with hopes of forcing a change in that behavior. But while the "itch" word has been largely banished today from the male…

As soon as Manu Katché launches into his concert — with the snap of a snare, a rumble on the toms — you can sense this is going to be some journey and he's not holding back. His bass-drum thuds with authority, punctuated by flashing cymbals, and his sticks fly into the air before they drop softly: right from the start, they express the elegant dynamics which have come to characterize his style. They're his signature now. Beneath his beige cap, a broad…
