Horace Silver (born Horace Ward Martin Tavares Silva, September 2, 1928 – June 18, 2014[2]) was an American jazz pianist and composer.[1] Silver is known for his distinctive humorous and funky playing style and for his pioneering compositional contributions to hard bop. He was influenced by a wide range of musical styles, notably gospel music, African music, and Latin American music and sometimes ventured into the soul jazz genre.[3][4] Contents 1 Early life and career 2 Blue Note years 3 Influences 4 Later years 5 Legacy 6 Discography 6.1 As leader 6.2 As sideman 7 References 8 External links Early life and career Silver was born on September 2, 1928, in Norwalk, Connecticut, United States.

Remember this guy and a photo of his Philly home 1511 N. 33rd St. property bought for $5,416 by John Coltrane. (1951?) John Coltrane, his mother, aunt and cousin arrived in Philadelphia from High Point, N.C., in 1943. Coltrane had studied the saxophone and clarinet while in high school in North Carolina. In Philadelphia, he worked at the Campbell Soup plant and a sugar refinery. Drafted in 1945, he played in the U.S. Navy Band. Coltrane toured with famed trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie in 1950 and returned to Philadelphia in 1951, when he started hanging out in black clubs and attended Ornstein School of Music, formerly part of Combs College of Music in Chestnut Hill. Coltrane continued his classical studies on a scholarship during the day at the Granoff School of Music near 21st and Spruce. At night, he played rhythm and blues and jazz in such clubs as Zanzibar, the Downbeat and the Blue Note

NOTE ~ VINTAGE VANGUARD ~ Rashid "The Jazz Aficionado" Collection on Wax Hard bop and beyond In 1951 Blue Note issued their first vinyl 10" releases, and the label was soon recording new talent such as Horace Silver (who would stay with Blue Note for a quarter of a century), the Jazz Messengers (originally a collaboration, but soon to become Art Blakey's group), Milt Jackson (as the leader of what became the Modern Jazz Quartet) and Clifford Brown. Rudy Van Gelder recorded most Blue Note releases from 1953 until the late sixties, and his often-praised engineering was, in its own way, as important and revolutionary as the music. Another important difference between Blue Note and other independent labels (for example Prestige Records, who also employed Van Gelder) was that musicians were paid for rehearsal time prior to the recording session: this helped ensure a better end result on the record. Producer Bob Porter of Prestige Records once said that "The difference between Blue Note and Prestige is two d .. ...

Sat, 1937-04-24 On this date in 1937, Joe Henderson was born. He was an African American jazz saxophonist. From Lima, Ohio, Henderson's musical career started when he was a student at Kentucky State College and Wayne University in Detroit. After a two-year military stint from 1960 to 1962, he worked with Jack McDuff and Kenny Dorham before signing with Blue Note in 1963. There, he joined Horace Silver's quintet in 1964 for two years. Henderson's output for the label included Page One, Our Thing, and Mode For Joe, and yielded his classic compositions Recorda Me and Inner Urge. He was a sideman for many of the brightest artists of the era including Herbie Hancock and Andrew Hill. He briefly played with Miles Davis and with Blood, Sweat and Tears. He made recordings for the Milestone label in the '70s, when he relocated to San Francisco. His profile exploded in the '90s, thanks to several critically acclaimed recordings for Verve: Lush Life: The Music of Billy Strayhorn, So Near, So Far (Musings For Miles), ...

She was the one of the best jazz singers. Not to be forgotten. --Carmen Mercedes McRae --McRae sang in jazz clubs throughout the United States — and across the world — for more than fifty years. She was a popular performer at the legendary Monterey Jazz Festival, performing with Duke Ellington's orchestra at the North Sea Jazz Festival in 1980, singing "Don't Get Around Much Anymore", and at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1989. -- She left New York for Southern California in the late 1960s, but appeared in New York regularly, usually at the Blue Note, where she performed two engagements a year through most of the 1980s.[4] She withdrew from public performance in May 1991 after an episode of respiratory failure only hours after she completed an engagement at the Blue Note Jazz Club in New York. On November 10, 1994, McRae died at her home in Beverly Hills, California, at the age of 74. She had fallen into a semi-coma four days earlier, a month after being hospitalized for a stroke. --(April 8, 1920 – ...

Buika (“BWEE-kah”) was born María Concepción Balboa Buika to parents who came to Spain from Equatorial Guinea as political exiles, They were the only black residents in one of Palma de Mallorca’s poor neighborhoods. She found a second home among the community of Gypsy families, finding in flamenco’s individualistic spirit a path to self-acceptance. Buika has emerged as a true innovator, a must-see artist among jazz aficionados. Her evident African roots and her cosmopolitanism, developed in clubs in Spain and Americanized during a surreal stint in Las Vegas as a Tina Turner impersonator, explain Buika’s rare self-possession. Buika is simply one of those rare and wonderful “one listen” artists. It’s a quality that struck the renowned filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, who cast her in The Skin I Live In, and jazz leged Chick Corea, who featured Buika as a special guest during an epic run at the Blue Note. On her new release, La Noche Más Larga, Buika moves beyond her Spanish language borders to ...

*LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD CONCERT SPOTLIGHT* NEA JAZZ MASTER CURTIS FULLER's Jamaican-born parents died when he was young; he was raised in an orphanage. While in Detroit he was a schoolfriend of Paul Chambers and Donald Byrd, and also knew Tommy Flanagan, Thad Jones and Milt Jackson. After army service between 1953 and 1955 (when he played in a band with Chambers and brothers Cannonball and Nat Adderley), Fuller joined the quintet of Yusef Lateef, another Detroit musician. In 1957 the quintet moved to New York, and Fuller recorded his first sessions as a leader for Prestige Records. Alfred Lion of Blue Note Records first heard him playing with Miles Davis in the late 1950s, and featured him as a sideman on record dates led by Sonny Clark and John Coltrane; Fuller's work on the latter's Blue Train album is probably his best known recorded performance. Fuller led four dates for Blue Note, though one of these, an album with Slide Hampton, was not issued for many years. Other sideman appearances over the n ...

As I enjoyed a performance this weekend by visiting trumpeter Dominick Farinacci, it sparked memories of how strong the jazz scene has been in the Flathead for many decades. Although there’s been an up-tick in activity in recent years, the Golden Era may be behind us. The following is a list of notable artists who performed locally from the 1970s into the 2000s. Feast your eyes on the names of some of the most iconic musicians of the 20th Century (presented in a somewhat chronological order based on their local activity): Helen Humes, Dave Brubeck, George Shearing, Barbara Carroll, Stan Kenton, Ramon Lopez, Woody Herman, John Fedchock, Nat Adderley, Fred Raulson, Jack Walrath, Maynard Ferguson, Denis Diblasio, Buddy Rich, Bobby Hutcherson, Eddie Harris, Jack Sheldon, Emily Remler, Stan Mark, Paul McCandless, Richie Cole, Lew Tabakin, Kenny Burrell, Wynton Marsalis, Carmen Bradford, Charles Owens, Buddy Morrow, Carlos Guedes, Buddy Collette, Allen Vizzutti, Buddy DeFranco, Conte Condoli, Eddie Shaughness ...

LISTEN TO LAST SATURDAY'S SHOW HERE: The Changing Same on XRAY.FM has gone international! Last weeks show was the best yet - the show got bumped up from one to two hours, and we had listeners from all over the world. Alana from Torino, Italy gave a shout, but most notably, Benton *** who was tuning in from Istanbul with his son. They jumped on board for my guided tour through the world of jazz, criss-crossing all of its genres and sub-genres, back and forth through time, as we touched on the fusion stylings of the late 70's (Terje Rypdal, Jack DeJohnette, Miroslav Vitous, Ornette Coleman), classic 60's recordings from Blue Note, Prestige, and Riverside (Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk, Mal Waldron, Red Garland), the hardcore 1940's & 30's swank from the men that literally paved the way to the what jazz is today (Coleman Hawkins, Louis Armstrong, and Lester Young), a 1924 recording from Bessie Smith, and the ground breaking avant garde scene that flipped music on its head that came out of NY and Chicago in ...
centering the brain      around a single blue note,     suspended oscillations      of that moment when the heart      tripped against the tongue     in spasms of darkness and light,     mirrors breaking in the skin      like words crawling onto the ocean shore     where God sits      disguised as a sandpiper,     eying the universe from the inside out,     as if.      The blue note, twisting in a series of      harmonics across the curvature of the sky     lifted the leaves of the tree      into opalescent shimmering fractals,      and the eye burst      like a sundial against the night,     carved by vagabonds whose feet are scented with      winter dew,      their eyes like purple nightingales      fluttering through the song      on wings made of whiskey and magic      that the barroom cannot contain,     there      where the brain evolves into a daisy chain of superstitions     verb after verb      lighting the universe with the f ...
Jamaaladeen is honored and humbled to announce a very special addition to the line up of Celebrating Ornette Concert happening 3/21 at The Painted Bride. The Legendary vocalist Asha Puthli will be joining him singing a song from Ornette Coleman's Seminal Album Science Fiction. (Excerpt from her Bio) Asha Puthli is one of the most successful vocalists ever to come out of India. Perhaps best known for her stirring vocals on free jazz legend Ornette Coleman’s Science Fiction album, Asha is a cosmopolitan pioneer of jazz, funk, soul and electronic dance music who has recorded ten solo albums for labels like EMI and CBS/Sony. A quick glance at some of the artists with whom she has recorded, sung or shared the stage is a testament to her eclecticism: Alice Coltrane, Roy Ayers, Henry Threadgill, Grace Jones, Mirielle Mathieu, Sonny Rollins, Charlie Haden, Renato Zero, Barry White, Bill Laswell, Patti Smith, Nina Hagen, Don Cherry, Freddie Hubbard, and Django Reinhardt. Like her mentor Ornette Coleman, Asha Put ...

TWO GREAT show coming to Yoshi"s: FOR Immediate RELEASE Two of Jazz’s Best vocalists have back to back dates at Yoshi’s San Francisco Kurt Elling and Roberta Gambarini are not only great technical singers, but holders of the flame By Ken Vermes Although there a many jazz vocalists performing today, there are few that can claim the level of authority and technical achievement as Kurt Elling and Roberta Gambarini. And the chance to see these two back to back at San Francisco’s premier and intimate night club is a special occasion, to be celebrated by all who treasure the vocal arts. Each has a unique style and both have the ability to perform in the language of jazz. Both are extremely knowledgeable about the music and its history. And both singers are charismatic and powerful communicators and enthusiasts. Elling is from Chicago, and he is steeped in that city’s rich tradition of hard blowing music. His very first recording, “Close Your Eyes” on Blue Note Records, featured the Chicago tenor gre ...

With that in mind, I had this crazy idea to check out the upcoming tour dates for bands that have new records out (or coming out) but are bypassing St. Louis. Turns out almost everyone who's anyone is playing Chicago (duh) or someplace even closer. SO...this project is for everyone who's ever found out someone they knew would've gone to that out-of-town show too--if they'd only had someone to go with! I might be thinking about going to some of these shows myself; some of them aren't my cup of tea but I thought I'd throw 'em out there in case I happened to have two (or more) friends that wouldn't mind carpooling to the Blue Note or the Empty Bottle or the Vogue or wherever. Without further ado, here are a bunch of bands that (mostly) aren't coming to St. Louis, along with the d ...

Takuya Kuroda - Rising Son (2014) Tracklist: 1. Rising Son 2. Afro Blues 3. Piri Piri 4. Mala 5. Everybody Loves The Sunshine 6. Green and Gold 7. Sometime, Somewhere, Somehow 8. Call trumpeter and composer Takuya Kuroda makes his Blue Note debut with the release of Rising Son, which was produced by José James. Kuroda, who is best known for his inspired presence in James' band, steps forth here to helm that remarkable band which features keyboardist Kris Bowers, electric bassist Solomon Dorsey, drummer Nate Smith, and trombonist Corey King. James mostly stayed on the other side of the glass in the producer s chair except for a hypnotic version of the Roy Ayers classic Everybody Loves The Sunshine to which he lends his captivating baritone. The imaginative guitarist Lionel Loueke also contributes a bluesy, percussive solo to one of the album s standout tracks Afro Blues. No one sounds like Takuya, says James. His tone, warmth and most of all his storytelling have inspired me for years. His writing is soul ...

GRACHAN MONCUR III (Trombone) "New Africa (1969) - One Morning I Woke Up Very Early (1969) AMG Artist Biography by Scott Yanow One of the first trombonists to explore free jazz, Grachan Moncur III is still best-known for his pair of innovative Blue Note albums (1963-1964) that also featured Lee Morgan and Jackie McLean on the first session and Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock on the later date. The son of bassist Grachan Moncur II, who played with the Savoy Sultans during 1937-1945, Grachan III started on trombone when he was 11. He toured with Ray Charles (1959-1962), was with the Jazztet (1962), and in 1963, played advanced jazz with Jackie McLean. Moncur toured with Sonny Rollins (1964) and played and recorded with Marion Brown, Joe Henderson, and Archie Shepp, matching up with fellow trombonist Roswell Rudd in the latter group. He also was part of the cooperative band 360 Degree Music Experience with Beaver Harris. Grachan Moncur, who has also recorded as a leader for BYG (1969) and JCOA (1974), cont ...

The inaugural Beatles performance in the U.S. isn't the only major musical event marking a 50th anniversary in February. Feb. 15 is the 50th anniversary of the recording of "Search for the New Land," the greatest album by the late jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan. The music recorded on that day in a New Jersey studio was the culmination of Morgan's skills and displayed that he had made a full comeback from one of his too-frequent bouts of drug addiction. Morgan got the music on tape for posterity just in time, because he didn't have long to live. Morgan was one of the fiery young trumpeters to emerge from the era where hard bebop had coalesced from a 1950's novelty to a mainstream form of jazz. Morgan was a rising star in the 1960's and to exhibit his talent, jazz record label Blue Note set him up for an all-star matchup. Blue Note producer Alfred Lion combined Morgan with two veterans of touring with Miles Davis - saxophonist Wayne Shorter, who was still on tenor sax, just before his move to soprano - and pian ...
Everette Harp (born August 17, 1961, in Houston, Texas)[1][2] is an American blues, jazz and gospel saxophonist who has recorded on Blue Note and Capitol Records. Harp's 2006 album, In the Moment, debuted in the number one position of Billboard’s Contemporary . Everette Harp started playing piano at two, and began practicing saxophone at the age of four. The youngest of the eight children of a minister, gospel music was one of Harp's earliest influences. Harp started playing jazz in high school, and graduated from North Texas State University with a music major in the early 1980s. While there he joined Phi Beta Sigma. Working as an accountant for a short time, Harp played in local Houston bands, most notably a local jazz/funk group called The Franchise, which released its own album locally, which included the first recording of Harp's "There's Always Hope" in 1987. Harp moved to Los Angeles in 1988. He immediately toured briefly with Teena Marie, and then internationally with Anita Baker. In 1992, Harp ...

RIP - WHEN RONNY JORDAN turned professional in 1985, jazz guitar was not in the ascendancy. While the Acid Jazz label and scene had turned the spotlight on aspects of the classic Blue Note and Verve catalogues, few had revisited the work of seminal players such as Grant Green, Kenny Burrell and Wes Montgomery. Jordan, who was born in London on November 29, 1962, however was in thrall to these players and helped turn the spotlight back on them as his playing came to the attention of a wider audience. Jordan first made his mark with the release of his debut album, 1992’s The Antidote, on Island Records – the label that had signed and supported fellow British jazz musicians Courtney Pine and Andy Sheppard a few years earlier. The record was defined by a modern, lithe version of Miles Davis’s Kind Of Blue classic, So What. Ronny Jordan delivers his interpretation of Miles Davis’s 1959 tune, So What. Jordan came to further prominence when he appeared on Gangstarr leader Guru’s groundbreaking Jazzmata ...

An absolutely awesome ending to a great set by Chris Botti down at the Blue Note in Greenwich Village in NYC.
December 24th, we celebrate the life and times of Raphael Homer "Ray" Bryant (December 24, 1931 – June 2, 2011); an African-American jazz pianist and composer. Although he could always play bop, Ray Bryant's playing combined together older elements (including blues, boogie-woogie, gospel, and even stride) into a distinctive, soulful, and swinging style; no one played "After Hours" quite like him. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Ray Bryant began playing the piano at the age of six, also performing on bass in junior high school. He turned professional before his age of majority. In 1948-49 he toured with guitarist Tiny Grimes. He was house pianist at the Blue Note club in Philadelphia from 1953 to 1956, accompanying many other leading players such as Lester Young, Jo Jones, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and Sonny Stitt. He also played with Sonny Rollins, Melba Liston, and Coleman Hawkins, as well as singers Carmen McRae and Aretha Franklin. From the late 1950s, he led a trio, performing throughout the ...
'Don't Worry About Me' - Dexter Blows Hot and Cool. Today I found a 1966 Blue Note pressing of 'Our Man In Paris' (before they got bought out by Liberty). The first Dexter I ever heard and one of my profoundest musical memories. My copy is signed by The Man Himself. It sounds great and I don't think I'll ever part with it. The perfect Christmas present.

TONIGHT - A new Tuesday night series starts at Scat. Blue Note Records is an American jazz record label, established in 1939 by Alfred Lion and Max Margulis. It derives its name from the characteristic "blue notes" of jazz and the blues. Some of the most influential artists and music from Coltrane to Monk to Coleman just to name a few were Blue Note staples. Pete Clagett and Chris Milyo make Tuesdays a walk down memory lane and tribute to this legendary label that changed the world of music. No Cover. Tonight is an 8:30 start.

The Greg Hopkins Nonet AKA Cryogenic Renaissance Orchestra Thursday, December 5th, 2013 -- 9:00-1:00 at The BEAT HOTEL, 13 Brattle Street Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA This dynamic, brilliant sounding mini–big band will perform several original arrangements from Hopkins' past recordings, as well as a new piece by Greg inspired by Hurricane Sandy, Microblast. The program will also include inspirations from two Blue Note albums from the late ‘60s, McCoy Tyner’s Tender Moments and Herbie Hancock’sThe Prisoner. Led by jazz composer, arranger, trumpeter, and Berklee faculty member Greg Hopkins, this tight-knit nine-piece unit boasts some of the best jazz talent anywhere. Hopkins, longtime professor of jazz composition at Berklee, was soloist/arranger for the Buddy Rich Band in 1972–1974 before settling in the Boston area. In theBoston Globe, Bob Blumenthal called him "one of Boston’s unappreciated jazz treasures.” Cryogenic Renaissance Orchestra 2013 Greg Hopkins -- Trumpet, Flugelhorn Megan Ric ...
Donald Byrd "Blackbyrd" 1973 AMG Review by Steve Huey [-] Purists howled with indignation when Donald Byrd released Black Byrd, a full-fledged foray into R&B that erupted into a popular phenomenon. Byrd was branded a sellout and a traitor to his hard bop credentials, especially after Black Byrd became the biggest-selling album in Blue Note history. What the elitists missed, though, was that Black Byrd was the moment when Byrd's brand of fusion finally stepped out from under the shadow of his chief influence, Miles Davis, and found a distinctive voice of its own. Never before had a jazz musician embraced the celebratory sound and style of contemporary funk as fully as Byrd did here -- not even Davis, whose dark, chaotic jungle-funk stood in sharp contrast to the bright, breezy, danceable music on Black Byrd. Byrd gives free rein to producer/arranger/composer Larry Mizell, who crafts a series of tightly focused, melodic pieces often indebted to the lengthier orchestrations of Isaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfiel ...
Rachel Gray assigned me Living Color Do I like them? Yes. Folks are often surprised to hear that I like metal, although I'm pretty selective. Aerosmith is my most favorite in the metal category, and I've even been to Ozz-fest. I've seen and listened to enough metal to know that these guys are underrated. Favorite song: I very much dislike their signature song, Cult of Personality, as well as Glamour Boys, but their cover of Memories Can't Wait (Talking Heads) = pure awesome. Also, What's Your Favorite Color is a cool song, reminiscent of Earth Wind & Fire. Did I ever see them? Definitely I saw Vernon Reid play at many different places including the Blue Note or Knitting Factory with jazz people (e.g., Geri Allen), but later saw the band Living Colour at a bunch o' places like CBGB, perhaps at Cat Club? Or Pyramid? Perhaps at one of the first ten seasons of Celebrate Brooklyn or at Central Park Summer Stage?Possibly I saw them tour through Madison in the 1990s, at Club de Wash or O'Cayz Corral?

A roundup of October jazz deaths: FRANK D'RONE (April 26, 1932-October 3, 2013) Chicago-based vocalist/guitarist whose accomplished scat singing gained him the admiration of many jazz musicians and a recording contract for Mercury in the late '50s, a career he kept going right up until his death from cancer. (81) BUTCH WARREN (August 9, 1939-October 5, 2013) Bassist who before leaving the music due to mental illness in the mid '60s (he did return sporadically in the last few years) had sideman credits on some of the legendary Blue Note albums of the '50s by the likes of Jackie McLean, Donald Byrd, Herbie Hancock, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Kenny Dorham and Thelonious Monk. (74) *** LAPALM (June 23, 1927-October 7, 2013) Noted businessman who represented numerous jazz musicians, was a record promoter at Chess Records, ran Village Recorders in Los Angeles and then became a "lobbyist" (his term) on behalf of the music he loved.

Sometimes, when people ask what working in a prison for two decades was like, I wonder if they are expecting stories of violence, brutality, social injustice, etc. It was never about that for me. Arthur The frail old man sat in the cushioned chair, never before invited. It had taken him forever to walk from his cell, his body ravaged by time and steel, but momentarily revived by a note from long ago. "My God kid, it's been years since I heard that piece. I knew all those guys you know, back in New York... played with most of 'em". Then he rattled off a list of names, smiling slyly when he told me about the piano player from Boston who was always in trouble with the ladies. I heard fence crash as he stared at the radio, vigilant eyes bowed to the music, and I heard him humming stronger than he ever would again. "Holy man, holy". He went to New York and saw that the Blue Note was still there, sauntered in and sat next to a woman at the bar, had a glass of whiskey, whispered something in her ear and the two ...

The next day we are playing an In Utero (album) tribute show at The Opolis in Norman with Doll Steak. Everyone who saw the first one at Blue Note said it was awesome. Can't wait for that either. Then next Monday we're recording a song that's going on an AC/DC tribute album that's being released in France. We've been keeping this kind of a secret. Can anyone guess what song we chose to record? These will be the last shows we play until after we're finished recording the new record. Then we play two shows with Kate Nash and La Sera in Chicago and Indianapolis! Hope we see you at the shows this week!
Polifonia..only good music.For 1973's dynamite Realization and Inside Out, trumpeter Eddie Henderson reassembled most of the legendary Herbie Hancock sextet he'd been part of. In 1975 after leaving Capricorn for Blue Note, he kept elements of that group together for Sunburst, his label debut, with some major changes: George Duke played keyboards in place of Hancock; bassist Paul Jackson was replaced by Alphonso Johnson, and drummer Mike Clarke with Billy Hart. It resulted in a funkier experimental outing that tightened up the tunes a bit, but left plenty of blowing room for himself, reedman Bennie Maupin, and trombonist Julian Priester. The set sold well commercially, but many jazz critics derided it because of its perceived "commercial" overtones. Released in 1976, Heritage was greeted with even more ambivalence, but has since come to be regarded -- with Sunburst -- as one of the great recordings of Henderson's career by an entirely new generation who hold funky rhythms and electronics in high esteem. He ...

Dear Friends and Jazz Lovers – For our ongoing First-Saturday-of-the-Month tribute series, this Saturday (July 6), BMQ is returning to Hollywood Studio Bar and Grill [(6122 Sunset Blvd in Gower Gulch / East of Vine), (323) 466-9917 ( Those of you who hung out with us there a while back will agree it ’s a great place for jazz – soothing supper club ambience, great food, a full bar, and convenient parking. This month we pay a special tribute to two gifted jazz artists/composers: Lee Morgan and Joe Zawinul. (Edward) Lee Morgan was born in Philadelphia on July 10, 1938. Before his untimely demise at the age of 32 (see The Lady Who Shot Lee Morgan at his manifest talent was generously displayed throughout the jazz world. While still a teenager, Morgan performed grandly on John Coltrane’s 1957 (and only) Blue Note recording, Blue Train. Lee then joined Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers for a few years before cutting out on his own. This Saturday we’ll offer BMQ renditions of two of Lee’s many com ...
One of the great things about YouTube is that I can come home late at night and, at the touch of a few buttons, experience once again the sublime chemistry of Chick Corea and his Three Quartets ensemble live at the Blue Note. Such a beautiful moment occurs midway through Michael Brecker's breathtaking tenor solo, where Chick is literally open-mouthed in amazement at Brecker's seemingly inexhaustible wellspring of ideas. This was near the end of Michael's tragically short life and a testament to his brilliance.
Chester Thompson 'Powerhouse' (Black Jazz/Snow Dog Japan) 3/5 Hammond B3 organist Chester Thompson is especially well known for his part as a member of cult funk band Tower of Power with whom he played for a decade and then for an extended twenty plus year sojourn as part of the Santana band. However, he did cut an album as leader for Black Jazz and this fits very much into the later 1960s/early 1970s soul jazz bag with a slightly harder edge in places. In this endeavour he is ably assisted by saxophonist Rudy Johnson who has taken inspiration from the John Coltrane school of tenor playing, trombonist Al Hall Jr and Ray Pounds on the drums. One of the strongest instrumentals is the catchy groover 'Weird Harold' which is the kind of track you might have found on a late 1960s Blue Note or Prestige album and there is some fine collective brass work here. Altogether heavier in approach is the title track where Thompson comes across as a Larry Young acolyte and the attractive and slightly ominous sounding main ...

Good am FB, I want to vent this morning about this dance I love call Steppin! Last night while out at the Blue Note someone said something to my student that made my mouth open wide. They told her that she was steppin WRONG. (I'm not going to mention a name but I want too) Really, she's wrong how bout your *** is wrong. I'm SCREAMING this dance is not a cha cha Men are required to take 8, eight steps just like me. This dance does not go up and down the lane and if you are teaching or doing it YOU ARE WRONG. I'm so tired of people in and out of Chicago butchering our dance. As for the out of towers if someone come to your city to teach you. And this include so called teacher and their student should come and get YOUR higher learning. YOU don't know it all. *** I don't know it ALL. I just learned how to HAND DANCE, now how would you feel HAND dancers and BALLROOM dancers if I starter teaching this dance and not coming back to the best and learning more. If my attitude was anything like that, I would be t .. ...

6/14 Adventures in Pandora, Volume 13, Terell Stafford Radio This listener first became aware of Stafford's aggressive yet melodic trumpet work on several of alto saxist Bobby Watson's fine offerings for Blue Note in the early '90s. Since then, the trumpeter has gone on to record many cd's both as a leader and a sideman. 1 -"Blues For JT" - Terell Stafford - "Taking Chances" (Live) Not particularly taking chances here, but a very enjoyable straight ahead blues with out front and in your face solo work from all hands. 2 - "Milestones" - Christian Fabian Trio - "The Masters Return" Brisk uptempo re-working of the 2nd "Milestones" by Miles (actually originally called "Miles" on the "Milestones" album). This listener's recollection is that there were more than 3 people on this cut. maybe a couple of extra horns (but this listening session was a few days ago) 3- "By the River Sainte Marie" - Jimmy Forrest - "Out of the Forest" Not the most exciting, the bluesiest or the most soulful Forrest cut this list ...
I really want to go see Chris Botti play the Blue Note in NYC in December...who's with me?
***FATHER'S DAY ESSAY*** Giant Dreams Midget Abilities by David Sedaris "WHEN YOU'RE PLAYING YOUR GUITAR, MAKE BELIEVE YOU'RE PLAYING AN ACTUAL WOMAN," MISTER MANCINI TOLD ME. "GRAB HER BY THE NECK AND MAKE HER HOLLER." My father loves jazz and has an extensive collection of records and reel-to-reel tapes he used to enjoy after returning home from work. He might have entered the house in a foul mood, but once he had his Dexter Gordon and a vodka martini, the stress melted away and everything was "Beautiful, baby, just beautiful." The instant the needle hit that record, he'd loosen his tie and become something other than the conservative engineer with a pocketful of IBM pencils embossed with the command think. "Man, oh man, will you get a load of the chops on this guy? I saw him once at the Blue Note, and I mean to tell you that he blew me right out of my chair! A talent like that comes along only once in a lifetime. The guy was an absolute comet, and there I was in the front row. Can you imagine that?" "G ...
2003: Saw Dierks Bentley for the fist time @ the Blue Note. 2013: Celebrating 10 years of fandom with Dierks Bentley @ the Blue Note!
This is my favorite album by the vastly underrated John Patton. Harold Alexander (Tenor Sax, Flute) and Hugh Walker (Drums) did a great job of "pushing John along" on this great Blue Note session. I would love to have heard more work from Hugh Walker.
Weird Al Jankovic is coming to the Blue Note on July 24th...we're getting psyched up already.

biography[-]by Steve Huey A cornerstone of the Blue Note label roster prior to his tragic demise, Lee Morgan was one of hard bop's greatest trumpeters, and indeed one of the finest of the '60s. An all-around master of his instrument modeled after Clifford Brown, Morgan boasted an effortless, virtuosic technique and a full, supple, muscular tone that was just as powerful in the high register. His playing was always emotionally charged, regardless of the specific mood: cocky and exuberant on up-tempo groovers, blistering on bop-oriented technical showcases, sweet and sensitive on ballads. In his early days as a teen prodigy, Morgan was a busy soloist with a taste for long, graceful lines, and honed his personal style while serving an apprenticeship in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. As his original compositions began to take in elements of blues and R&B, he made greater use of space and developed an infectiously funky rhythmic sense. He also found ways to mimic human vocal inflections by stuttering, slurring ...

OK, folks, it's time for Goldie's last gig. It's going to be a great one -- me and Nate G. and Bill Newton and the piano player Clark Stern playing my songs and Bill's shuffles and jazz, as well as lots more blues, rags and hollers. Nate will render a few. It's also Bob Dylan's birthday, so don't expect negativity to pull you through. From 6-8 p.m. Friday May 24, the Blue Note in Durham. But after that, nada. My performing career, which began so promisingly at an MYF gig with Steve Runkle at Highland Methodist Church in about April 1965, appears to be at an end. At 48 years of blood, sweet and 3.2 beers, it's been a good run. I'd like to thank my family, my lawyers, country radio, the fans, all the crew members, Chip Young and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
