Blue Note

In jazz and blues, a blue note (also worried note) is a note sung or played at a slightly lower pitch than that of the major scale for expressive purposes.

Born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, McGriff started playing piano at the age of five and by his teens had also learned to play vibes, alto sax, drums and upright bass.[2] His first group was as bassist in a piano trio. When he joined the United States Army, McGriff served as an MP during the Korean War and he later became a police officer in Philadelphia for two years.[1] Music kept drawing McGriff's attention away from the police force. His childhood friend, organist Jimmy Smith, had begun earning a substantial reputation in jazz for his Blue Note Records (the two played together once in 1967) and McGriff became entranced by the organ sound while Richard "Groove" Holmes played at his sister's wedding. Holmes went on to become McGriff's teacher and friend and they recorded together on two occasions in 1973 for two Groove Merchant records. McGriff bought his first Hammond B-3 organ in 1956, spent six months learning the instrument, then studied at New York's Juilliard School. He also studied privately with M ...

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.

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), ...

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 ...
Nugget. Egg roll. Strangers saying hello. Note to self. .
This guy started out doing low-scale performances at minor venues (to include the Blue Note) across the States. In little more than a year's time Tycho has achieved recognition across continents touring in Japan, Canada, and all over Europe. Awesome to hear this artist's "sound" develop into what it's become today. "Awake" to be leashed on March 18th--listen in!
Please note, if you are wearing blue eyeshadow I am probably judging you
I want to go see schoolboy q at the blue note.

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 ...
