Bereits auf dem ECM-Album ´´Aftenland´´ gingen Jan Garbarek und Kjell Johnsen den Schnittflächen zwischen Orgel und Saxophon nach. Auf ´´Cycle´´ emtwickeln die beiden führenden Jazzmusiker Aserbaidschans daraus ein kosmisches Spiel. Darin steht die Orgel für das Heilige. Das Saxophon für unsere tiefsten Gefühle. Das Klavier für die Evolution. Hier regiert das Licht: Man kann die Sonnenstrahlen, die durch die Fenster der gothischen Erlöserkirche in Baku fallen, in der das Album aufgenommen wurde, geradezu hören.

All In My Mind

Durch sein triumphales Comeback-Album ´´Evolution´´ (2016) ist der mittlerweile 75-jährige Hammond-Organist Dr. Lonnie Smith wieder in aller Munde. Labelchef Don Was holte den Künstler, der in den Sechzigern und Siebzigern mit enorm groovenden Blue-Note-Alben Furore machte, zum Label zurück. Besonders live ist Smith ´´eine Granate´´. Gerade erst brachte er den großen Saal des Berliner Jazzfestes zum Kochen und das sonst so reservierte Publikum auf die Stühle. Wie er das macht, zeigt auch sein neues Live-Album ´´All In My Mind´´, aufgenommen in New York mit seinen Triopartnern Jonathan Kreisberg (guitar) und Johnathan Blake (drums). Zu hören ist der Hammond-Meister mit einer Mischung aus groovenden Tracks und intensiven Balladen, Originalen aus eigener Feder, dem Standard ´´Up Jumped Spring´´ und Paul Simons Pop-Ohrwurm ´´50 Ways To Leave Your Lover´´.

Lennie Tristano zählt zu den herausragendsten und originellsten Pianisten der Jazzgeschichte. Durch seine äußerst markante und virtuose Spielweise, seine rhythmischen sowie harmonischen Explorationen und die Vorwegnahme des klassischen Free Jazz, beeinflusste er die Evolution des Jazz als amerikanische Kunstform. Neben seiner künstlerischen Karriere, prägte er die Entwicklung der Jazzpädagogik wie kaum ein Zweiter. So war Lennie Tristano einer der Ersten, der ein strukturiertes System entwickelte, mit welchem die Fähigkeiten, sich in der Sprache des Jazz kreativ und individuell auszudrücken, erlernt werden können. Während eines Zeitraums von über dreißig Jahren unterrichtete er mehrere hundert Schüler und brachte eine außerordentlich hohe Rate an erfolgreichen Jazz-Musikern hervor. Seine Unterrichtsmethoden sind nicht nur historisch interessant, sondern sind auch heute noch hochaktuell und für jeden wertvoll, der eine Antwort auf die Frage sucht, wie Jazz erfolgreich erlernt und unterrichtet werden kann.

Why Jazz Happened
24,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Why Jazz Happened is the first comprehensive social history of jazz. It provides an intimate and compelling look at the many forces that shaped this most American of art forms and the many influences that gave rise to jazz´s post-war styles. Rich with the voices of musicians, producers, promoters, and others on the scene during the decades following World War II, this book views jazz´s evolution through the prism of technological advances, social transformations, changes in the law, economic trends, and much more. In an absorbing narrative enlivened by the commentary of key personalities, Marc Myers describes the myriad of events and trends that affected the music´s evolution, among them, the American Federation of Musicians strike in the early 1940s, changes in radio and concert-promotion, the introduction of the long-playing record, the suburbanization of Los Angeles, the Civil Rights movement, the ´´British invasion´´ and the rise of electronic instruments. This groundbreaking book deepens our appreciation of this music by identifying many of the developments outside of jazz itself that contributed most to its texture, complexity, and growth.

Praise for ´´Lester Young´´ .´´ . . a schematic of unparalleled insight and detail.´´ ---´´Down Beat´´ ´´A monumental work.´´ ---Dizzy Gillespie .´´ . . a major contribution to jazz scholarship . . . for its illumination of Lester Young´s music and for setting the biographical record straight.´´ ---Dan Morgenstern Several new biographies of Lester Young have been published in the years since Lewis Porter´s ´´Lester Young´´ first appeared, but none have supplanted or even attempted the in-depth study that Porter brings to his subject´s music. With the same care and scholarship that characterized his John Coltrane, Porter analyzes the music that made Lester Young ´´the most original tenor sax in jazz.´´ In addition to helping us understand Lester Young´s playing and stylistic evolution, Porter´s analysis demonstrates that Young´s playing at the end of his career did not mark a serious decline over his earlier style, as many critics have claimed.

The Hirschfeld Century: Portrait of an Artist a...
25,99 € *

I am down to a pencil, a pen, and a bottle of ink. I hope one day to eliminate the pencil. Al Hirschfeld redefined caricature and exemplified Broadway and Hollywood, enchanting generations with his mastery of line. His art appeared in every major publication during nine decades of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, as well as on numerous book, record, and program covers; film posters and publicity art; and on fifteen U.S. postage stamps. Now, The Hirschfeld Century brings together for the first time the artist´s extraordinary eighty-two-year career, revealed in more than 360 of his iconic black-and-white and color drawings, illustrations, and photographs-his influences, his techniques, his evolution from his earliest works to his last drawings, and with a biographical text by David Leopold, Hirschfeld authority, who, as archivist to the artist, worked side by side with him and has spent more than twenty years documenting the artist´s extraordinary output. Here is Hirschfeld at age seventeen, working in the publicity department at Goldwyn Pictures (1920-1921), rising from errand boy to artist; his year at Universal (1921); and, beginning at age eighteen, art director at Selznick Pictures, headed by Louis Selznick (father of David O.) in New York. We see Hirschfeld, at age twenty-one, being influenced by the stylized drawings of Miguel Covarrubias, newly arrived from Mexico (they shared a studio on West Forty-Second Street), whose caricatures appeared in many of the most influential magazines, among them Vanity Fair. We see, as well, how Hirschfeld´s friendship with John Held Jr. (Held´s drawings literally created the look of the Jazz Age) was just as central as Covarrubias to the young artist´s development, how Held´s thin line affected Hirschfeld´s early caricatures. Here is the Hirschfeld century, from his early doodles on the backs of theater programs in 1926 that led to his work for the drama editors of the New York Herald Tribune (an association that lasted twenty years) to his receiving a telegram from The New York Times, in 1928, asking for a two-column drawing of Sir Harry Lauder, a Scottish vaudeville singing sensation making one of his (many) farewell tours, an assignment that began a collaboration with the Times that lasted seventy-five years, to Hirschfeld´s theater caricatures, by age twenty-five, a drawing appearing every week in one of four different New York newspapers. Here, through Hirschfeld´s pen, are Ethel Merman, Benny Goodman, Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, Katharine Hepburn, the Marx Brothers, Barbra Streisand, Elia Kazan, Mick Jagger, Ella Fitzgerald, Laurence Olivier, Martha Graham, et al. . . . Among the productions featured: Fiddler on the Roof, West Side Story, Rent, Guys and Dolls, The Wizard of Oz (Hirschfeld drew five posters for the original release), Gone with the Wind, The Sopranos, and more. Here as well are his brilliant portraits of writers, politicians, and the like, among them Ernest Hemingway (a pal from 1920s Paris), Tom Wolfe, Charles de Gaulle, Nelson Mandela, Joseph Stalin, Winston Churchill, and every president from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Bill Clinton. Sumptuous and ambitious, a book that gives us, through images and text, a Hirschfeld portrait of an artist and his age.
