Meditations on Mingus’ 90th - By Tom Reney

Meditations on Mingus’ 90th - By Tom Reney | WNMC Music | Scoop.it

The closest I ever came to meeting Charles Mingus was when I followed him up the stairs of the Jazz Workshop in Boston on a wintry Sunday afternoon. He’d just finished his matinee set, and as he headed out to Boylston Street in a belted, butterscotch-brown leather coat, he slipped on the icy sidewalk. My friend Nic and I made a quick grab for his arms to keep him from going down, and once the startled Mingus righted himself, he offered us a nervous thank you. The ensuing moment did not seem right for an adoring line of introduction from either of us, so we moved on. I would see Mingus several times more in concert, but that was the closest I got to the great musician in person.

Scofield/Brookmeyer duet

Scofield/Brookmeyer duet | WNMC Music | Scoop.it
In 1981, guitarist John Scofield received a phone call at his hotel in the Netherlands while touring with his band. On the other line was a local TV-show producer. He needed a sub to play with valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer that night on a show. John jumped at the chance.

The result of that appearance is below and features Bob and John performing Moonlight in Vermont as a duet. Listen to what Bob does with the melody and where he goes with the lines. Listen for the traps he creates while taking creative risks—and how he turns the tables on them to produce completely new melody lines. And dig John's tender fusion voicings that are both distinct and supportive...

Erroll Garner: London, 1964 - JazzWax | WNMC Music | Scoop.it

I'm on the road this week for the Wall Street Journal. Which is neither here nor there when it comes to why you're here at JazzWax now. So, I can think of no better way to start the week than with 35 minutes of Erroll Garner, filmed in London in 1964. In jazz, there are pianists. And there is Erroll Garner. That's Eddie Calhoun on bass and Kelly Martin on drums. Special thanks to John Cooper for passing along this clip...

How jazz secretly invaded pop music

How jazz secretly invaded pop music | WNMC Music | Scoop.it

Anyone who saw [Radiohead's] meditative surprise Glastonbury set, or heard the intricate, quiet beauty of last album The King of Limbs, would have to agree. These days, they instead sound like what one might have imagined a Blue Note modern jazz quintet would morph into by the 21st century.

Jazz Musician of the Day: Jimmy Giuffre - jazz industry news at All About Jazz... Giuffre was the arranger behind Woody Herman's Four Brothers, his folk-jazz band of the 1950s is still woefully underappreciated, and his avant-garde projects of later years are rightfully cited as landmarks.

Jazz Musician of the Day: Joe Henderson

Jazz Musician of the Day: Joe Henderson | WNMC Music | Scoop.it
All About Jazz is celebrating Joe Henderson's birthday today!

The tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson was born on April 24, 1937 in a small city called Lima Ohio midway between Dayton and Toledo. So many tenor saxophonists who came of age in the 1960s adapted heavily from both Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane, but none exceeded the success that Joe Henderson had in forging his own inimitable style from two such familiar influences. Henderson’s “inside-outside” approach was nuanced enough to bring vitality to tender ballads and abrasive enough to set more dynamic songs afire.

Zambia's debt to Bert

Although the main emphasis was Bert Weedon's influence on UK guitarists (Obituary, 21 April), he did influence musicians beyond these shores, including Zambia, in sub-Saharan Africa, an unknown in terms of music. In a part of the world where music is more a hobby than a big money earner, the early Zambian bands and musicians of the 60s through to the 80s emulated his clean sound, to which they could add their fuzz and distortions.

Old music: Frank Zappa – Charva

Old music: Frank Zappa – Charva | WNMC Music | Scoop.it
Adam Boult: In which our hero becomes the first person in history to listen to Frank Zappa in an effort to enhance his sexual attractiveness. . .Looking through my CD collection one afternoon in the mid-90s, it occurred to me that my music tastes were in need of a shake-up. As a 16-year-old with delusions of musical connoisseurship, my shelf of NME-approved indie suddenly looked a bit embarrassing. "I'm off to university next year," I thought. "Do I really want to arrive there with such a limited listening pool? No one will want to have sex with me if my entire musical world can be summed up with a Shine compilation album."

And so off I went to the music section of my local library, determined to find something clever and complicated, qualities that would surely rub off on me after a few listens. Browsing through the racks I came to the Z section and an album by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention.
