Fame, fortune, and beautiful models - Howard Chandler Christy had them all. Christy was the most famous American painter of the Jazz Age, a time when an elite brotherhood of New York artists dominated the publishing world. Christy had eclipsed all of them with his ''Christy Girl'', an idealized woman who redefined beauty, influenced fashion, and inspired generations of women. The Magic of Youth is the first book in An Affair with Beauty - The Mystique of Howard Chandler Christy, a biographical trilogy of the artist's epic life as told primarily through the eyes of his second wife, Nancy, a former Cosmopolitan model once considered to be one of the most beautiful women in America. As she reflects on her life, Nancy tells of first meeting Christy in 1912 and becoming his top model. She is captivated by his irresistible charm and the glamour of his enchanting world, but discovers that things are not always what they seem and even the great Christy has scandalous secrets. 1.

• “I don’t want to be called a jazz singer, though I certainly have some roots there. I’m not a cult singer either because after being called a legend that sounds too much like an epitaph. I think of myself as a songwriter’s singer. All the great Broadway and Hollywood teams are in my repertoire, along with contemporary people. Writers bring their songs to me because they rely on me to define their work with respect. That’s very flattering.” BLOSSOM DEARIE• “Fabulous! Her voice, her tremendous feeling for every song she sings, gives her music a very rare and special warmth.” SCOTT ENGEL• New Yorker journalist Whitney Balliett once wrote that her tiny wisp of a voice “would scarcely reach the second story of a doll’s house”, while jazz critic Leonard Feather described it as “a voice in a million”. Blossom Dearie pursued a singular career that blurred the line between jazz and cabaret, her little girl style rich with hidden sensuality, her interpretations full of sensitivity and wit.• After graduation, Blossom ventured to the late Forties New York City of Gil Evans, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker to immerse herself in be-bop, playing cocktail piano to get by. Opportunities to record eventually arrived in the form of vocalise sessions for Dave Lambert and Buddy Stewart and for Stan Getz, the contribution of an eight-bar vocal to a record by King Pleasure and in 1952 a historic piano session behind Annie Ross, alongside Milt Jackson, Percy Heath and Kenny Clarke, no less, an aggregation that under the direction of John Lewis would soon emerge as the Modern Jazz Quartet.• Blossom then accepted an invitation from Barclay Records to move to Paris, where she formed an eight piece mixed vocal group, The Blue Stars of France. They recorded an album and enjoyed a domestic hit with a French-language version of George Shearing’s eternal ‘Lullaby of Birdland’ arranged by Michel Legrand, whose sister Christiane was a member of the group (The Blue Stars would evolve into Les Double Six and The Swingle Singers). In Paris, Blossom would meet her husband, the Belgian flautist Bobby Jaspar (the couple recording an EP together, hard on the heels of her souflee-light instrumental debut album, Jazz Sweet). While in Europe Blossom also met the impresario Norman Granz, who encouraged Blossom to return to New York to record her vocal debut album for his new label Verve. That benchmark album, produced by Granz and featuring Herb Ellis, Ray Brown and Jo Jones, retains a particular mystique and his considered to be up there with her best work.• All of the aforementioned recordings – The Verve album, Jazz Sweet, the EP with Bobby Jaspar, The Blue Stars recordings and the early sessions are included in this 3 CD box set presentation along with The Perfect Sound – The Jazz Flute of Bobby Jaspar, which includes some of his most sublime performances in recordings with the trombonist J.J Johnson, pianist Hank Jones, vibraphonists Milt Jackson, Michel Hausser and John Rae, with trumpeter Donald Byrd, guitarists Barry Galbraith, Sacha Distel and fellow Belgian Rene Thomas, the vocalist Helen Merrill with Bill Evans, and finally three finely sculpted tracks accompanying Blossom on her 1959 album, “My Gentleman Friend”.DISC ONEBOBBY JASPAR andBLOSSOM DEARIE EP (1956)1.

Beyond A Love Supreme
18,90 CHF *

Recorded by his quartet in a single session in 1964, A Love Supreme is widely considered John Coltrane's magnum opus and one of the greatest jazz albums of all time. In Beyond A Love Supreme, Tony Whyton explores both the musical complexities of A Love Supreme and the album's seminal importance in jazz history. Marking Coltrane's transition from the bebop and hard bop of his earlier recordings to the free jazz style perfected throughout the rest of his career, the album also embodies the deep spirituality that characterized the final years of his life. The titles of the four part suite--'Acknowledgment,' 'Resolution,' 'Pursuance,' and 'Psalm'--along with the poem Coltrane composed for inclusion in the liner notes, which he 'recites' instrumentally in 'Psalm,' reflect the religious aspect of the album, a quality that contributes to its mystique and symbolic importance within the canon of major jazz recordings. But Whyton also shows how A Love Supreme challenges many of the traditional, unreflective assumptions that permeate jazz culture--the binary oppositions between improvisation and composition, black music and white music, live performance and studio recording. He critically examines many of the mythologizing narratives about how the album was conceived and recorded and about what it signifies in terms of the trajectory of Coltrane's personal life. Sifting through the criticism of late Coltrane, Whyton suggests ways of listening to these recordings that go beyond the conventional ideologies of mainstream jazz practice and open the music to a wider range of responses. Filled with fresh insights into one of the most influential recordings in jazz history, Beyond A Love Supreme is an indispensable resource for jazz scholars, jazz musicians, and fans and aficionados at all levels.
