The New Orleans Public Library has announced a $650 million Master Plan that will cover construction and operation costs for the next 25 years. Of that amount, $199 million will pay for construction of 12 new libraries and renovation of four existing buildings. About $114 million of the $199 million amount will pay for construction of a new main library and archives building, slated to be finished by 2016 (the site hasn’t been selected yet). The first library to be built under the Master Plan will celebrate jazz music. Referred to in the plan as Pontilly, the 18,849-square-foot district library will be built in the Gentilly neighborhood, although the exact location has yet to be selected. Slated to be completed by 2012, the Pontilly library will cost about $9 million to build.

facts donated by Chicago-based jazz legend Ramsey Lewis to the museum’s music collections. The ceremony, held at George Washington University, launched the seventh annual celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM). Lewis also engaged fellow musician Larry Coryell in a conversation about jazz as America’s national treasure and global export. Now in its seventh year, JAM is an annual event that pays tribute to jazz both as a historic and living American art form. Throughout the month, the Smithsonian will present numerous events, including performances, talks and family activities in venues across Washington, D.C. Lewis’ donation of archival materials documenting his career consists of rare photographs, publicity materials, news clippings and awards, including his 2007 designation as a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts and his designation as a living “Legendary Landmark of Chicago” in the same year. These items will join the museum’s collection of memorabilia from other jazz musicians, including Ella Fitzgerald, Lionel Hampton, Artie Shaw and Duke Ellington.

The program will offer students unique opportunities not only to hear the finest in live jazz, but to learn from and play with internationally renowned artists performing at both Yoshi’s clubs. Saxophonist/composer/recording artist Michael Zilber is the Artistic Director for the new Jazzschool Institute for Developing Artists and Audiences. Students are accepted into performance ensembles (Advanced Jazz Workshop I & II, Studio Big Band, Advanced Afro-Cuban Ensemble) in fall, winter, and spring quarters based on an audition. A weeklong summer program focusing on musicality and overall ensemble sound, composition, and improvisation will take place July 7-11.

noteworthy Study Reveals Teens’ Commitment To Music The NAMM Foundation today has announced the results of a recently published research study by Patricia Shehan Campbell, Ph.D. of the University of Washington as part of the Foundation’s Sounds of Learning research initiative. The study, titled “Adolescents’ Expressed Meanings of Music in and out of School,” was based on responses by 1,155 teens who submitted student essays to Teen People magazine as part of an Online contest. Throughout their essays, students expressed their thoughts toward learning and playing music and revealed that they value music making as a central aspect of their identities. The findings include: • Playing music provides a sense of belonging for teens.

• Making music provides the freedom for teens to just be themselves; to be different; to be something they thought they could never be; to be comfortable and relaxed in school and elsewhere in their lives. • Music helps adolescents release or control emotions and helps coping with difficult situations such as peer pressure, substance abuse, pressures of study and family, the dynamics of friendships and social life, and the pain of loss or abuse. • Teens believe developing musical skills and performance is important

since it paves the way to musical opportunities as skills develop. • Teens long for more variety and options for making music in school, including the expansion to instruments and technology used in popular music. • Adolescents are genuinely committed to their instruments and their school ensembles because they love to be involved in these musical and social groups. • Teens believe that music is an integral part of American life, and that music reflects American culture and society Teens feel that playing music teaches self discipline such as “there are payoffs if you practice and stick with something.” • Adolescents are of the opinion that playing music diminishes boundaries between people of different ethnic backgrounds, age groups and social interests. • Teens associate playing music with music literacy, listening skills, motor ability, eye-hand coordination and heightened intellectual capabilities. The analysis was funded by the NAMM Foundation as part of its Sounds of Learning initiative, a program devoted to studying the associated learning benefits of making music. Campbell conducted the study with Claire Connell of the University of Washington and Amy Beegle of Pacific Lutheran University. The findings were published in the Fall 2007 issue of the Journal for Research in Music Education. For more information, visit www.nammfoundation.org or e-mail info@nammfoundation.org.

What’s on Your Playlist? Diane Schuur, who has collaborated with the likes of B.B. King, Stan Getz, the Count Basie Orchestra, and Ray Charles, first made major waves in the jazz world with her stirring interpretation of “Amazing Grace” at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 1979. Following a televised gig at the White House in 1982, Schuur's career was truly off and running. A disciple of Dinah Washington and the jazz of her parent’s generation, Diane also embraces the pop stylings of her own youth during the late ‘50s and ‘60s. When selecting tracks for this installment of “What’s on Your Playlist?” Schuur found it difficult to restrict herself to only 10 choices – she even found it a challenge to keep her choices limited to “traditional” songs: “I also love old TV themes, including Lost in Space, Route 66, Dallas, Get Smart and the theme from Lassie. I could go on for days [choosing favorite songs and albums] because there’s so much music that’s accumulated in my brain over a lifetime!” Diane Schuur looks to add to her already impressive achievements as a recording artist – a resume that includes 1. What a Difference a Day Makes – Dinah Washington The reason I love this particular album so much is her mastery of a poignant lyric and melodic phrasing. 2. After Hours – Sarah Vaughan Sarah Vaughan’s After Hours album is stunning and her version of “Just Friends” is simply heartbreaking. 3. Concerto for my Love – George Shearing This album is simply exquisite! The string ensemble and the rest of the orchestra bring it together in such a wonderful way. My favorite tune on this collection is “Love Letters,” which was also one of my mother’s favorite songs when she was alive. 4. Focus – Stan Getz One of my favorite Stan Getz albums is entitled Focus, and the tune I love best on it is called “Her,” which is a tribute to his mother. 5. “Golden Years” – David Bowie I have eclectic taste in music, which goes beyond jazz into pop and rock & roll. I love David Bowie’s “Golden Years” because it reminds me of the time period when my sister and her then-future husband Donald were dating.

Photo by: Maura Lanahan three Grammy nominations and two Grammy Awards – with her newest collection, Some Other Time (Concord). 6. “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” – Diana Ross I dig the Motown sound, and one of my favorite songs from that time frame is Diana Ross’s version of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” 7. Tapestry – Carol King I love Carol King’s album Tapestry, particularly the song, “It’s too Late.” 8. Days of Future Past – Moody Blues Another favorite album of mine is the Moody Blues masterpiece Days of Future Past, and I love “Tuesday Afternoon” because of its rocking rhythm in the middle of the tune. 9. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road – Elton John “Going toward the rock era, I love Elton John. His album, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is another of my favorites, and I love an obscure tune called, “All the Young Girls Love Alice.” 10. Drive – Sarah Brightman This is one of my favorite Sarah Brightman CDs and one of my favorite selections from that album is “Once in a Lifetime.”

Diane Schuur’s album, Some Other Time (Concord), was released in February of 2008. www.dianeschuur.com

Emphasis is on learning, listening, fun and the collaboration that makes jazz the greatest American art. Players and singers of all abilities are welcome; no tapes or auditions required. Two camps are offered each summer--at Nazareth College in Rochester, NY (July 27-Aug. 1, 2008), and at Bjorklunden in Baileys Harbor, WI (August 10-15, 2008). Many Tritone campers return year after year, some claiming "life-changing" experiences and others calling the experience "my favorite week of the year."

Our signature Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Program, now in its 12th year, disseminates Duke Ellington charts, CDs, teaching guides, and other resources for a nominal membership fee (www. essentiallyellington.org). The Band Director Academy is a 3day intensive professional development session focused on Teaching Improvisation, held July 14-16 in NYC or July 19-21 in San Francisco. Three series of print music – Jazz for Young People Series, Essentially Ellington Series, and the Essential Jazz Editions - offer study and performance of easy, medium, and difficult level charts. Curriculum resources are available to support study of jazz in the general grade 4-8 classroom with our Jazz for Young People Curriculum (www.jazzforyoungpeople.org) or in the high school classroom with the NEA Jazz in the Schools (neajazzintheschools.org).

The Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival keeps the magic, music and spirit of jazz alive for generations to come by inspiring students, teachers, and artists of all ages and abilities to excel in their appreciation, understanding and performance of jazz. Situated on the beautiful University of Idaho campus in Moscow, Idaho, the Festival brings four days of outstanding jazz to northern Idaho every February. During the day, students and spectators from across the United States and Canada explore a variety of jazz programming. Visitors can attend student vocal and instrumental adjudicated performances, as well as clinics and workshops where artists talk about their music and experiences, as well as demonstrate many of the techniques which make them great jazz musicians. On three afternoons of the Festival, the day’s outstanding large student ensembles perform in concert. These late afternoon concerts display the exuberance of the students and showcase amazing, emerging talent. Each tremendous day of jazz has a finishing touch, where new Artistic Director John Clayton brings world-class artists to the center stage for a powerful night of music. Join us February 20-23 as we celebrate what would have been Lionel Hampton’s 100th birthday!

MCG Jazz brings audiences together with jazz artists in its 350 seat music hall for innovative performances; is a recording label that has produced four GRAMMY Award winning CDs; and is developing an artist-in-residence initiative impacting K-12 students that includes the creation of a jazz education curriculum to help build infrastructure for jazz education utilizing partners from private sector and higher education. By celebrating the rich history and future of jazz music, MCG Jazz contributes to the overall cultural diversity of the region. MCG Jazz is part of a much bigger idea. Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild is an arts and mentoring school for urban youth. Bidwell Training Center is a career educational training program for economically disadvantaged adults. All programs of Manchester Bidwell share a common vision that through direct involvement in the making of art and through personal exposure to the masters who teach and perform it, lives will be enriched and transformed. The ingredients of jazz music – individualism, spontaneity, improvisation and team work – are a shared framework for all of the programs of Manchester Bidwell. Fundamental to these programs is the philosophy that creativity breeds hope and hope is a catalyst for social change. Currently there are projects underway in several U.S. cities to replicate the Manchester Bidwell program, philosophy and culture.

John Dopyera started the National Stringed Instruments Co. in the mid-1920s in Los Angeles, California, which produced the first National resonator guitars. National’s mechanically amplified heyday came to an end in the mid 1930s, not until the late 1980s was the National style resonator guitar made again by Don Young and McGregor Gaines who formed National Reso-Phonic Guitars, dedicated to re-creating the look, the sound and the feel of the old National’s and, in addition, creating new looks and louder sounds than ever before. National instruments are hand crafted in the U.S.A. at our shop here in the Central Coast of California. Some of these guitars include the Style O, Delphi, Frosted Duco Delphi, El Trovador, Style 1 Tricone, Ukeleles, and Mandolins. Our instruments are used by slide players and finger-pickers in many musical genres; Jazz, blues, country, bluegrass, folk, Hawaiian, and world music.

TUBUF!PG!OBUVSF Celebrated guitar virtuoso and three time Grammy® nominee Stanley Jordan has consistently shown himself to be a musical visionary. This innovation was apparent the moment he electrified listeners with 1985’s gold record ‘Magic Touch’ and it still resonates twenty years later with ‘State Of Nature,’ Jordan’s first major release in over a decade and his debut for Mack Avenue. ‘State Of Nature’ shines with Jordan’s pioneering techniques, including simultaneous playing of both guitar and piano. Backed by charismatic bassist Charnett Moffett and anchored by the soulful rhythm of drummers David Haynes and Kenwood Dennard, Jordan’s writing and playing express and embrace evolution, talent and change – his own and that of the world around him.

Jazz Insight is the first and only company dedicated to building the jazz audience through jazz listener education. Founded in 1999 by the husband and wife team of jazz saxophonist Michael Kolodny and vocalist Laura Pierce, Jazz Insight offers unique home study courses, live workshops and teacher training programs. Using free downloadable class plans from the Jazz Insight website, jazz educators can expand their teaching options, and their audience, by using the Jazz Insight home courses to teach listener education in their own classes. The idea is simple: greater listening awareness means greater listening enjoyment. For example, how much fun would it be to watch a ballgame without knowing the rules? The same is true for listening to jazz. Jazz Insight explains how the jazz game

is played, and helps people play it themselves through fun, interactive, multidimensional activities and demonstrations. Nat Hentoff had this to say about the brief course, I Love Jazz - A Quick Guide to Jazz Listening: “This truly illuminates the sound of surprise.” The course features Jazz Insight directors Kolodny and Pierce, along with jazz masters Jimmy Cobb, Harvie S, and James Williams.

The CD Metronome is a revolutionary new practice tool for students, teachers, and professionals. Each 2 CD set contains 51 tracks of a recorded “LIVE” jazz drummer for you to use as your metronome (50-400 bpm). Each track is 3min long (no loops). Set your CD player or iPod to repeat one track to stay at one tempo...or let the player continue playing consecutive tracks and your tempo will increase automatically every 3min. Just think of it as your own personal drummer, willing to play for you anytime (with perfect time) for as long as you want. Whether you are working on scales, transcriptions, patterns, or blowing through changes, the CD METRONOME creates an inspiring environment with the correct feel that click metronomes, software, or drum machines can’t touch! For students new to jazz, the CD Metronome becomes your “swing” teacher by helping you embody the feel of swing 1/8 notes. THE BEST WAY TO LEARN SWING IS TO PLAY NEXT TO A GREAT JAZZ DRUMMER! Volumes available in swing 4/4, 3/4, 5/4, 7/4, and Freebop (no time signature). New volumes coming in latin, ECM style, hip hop, and funk. Available as CD’s or downloads. Audio examples available at www.paulcarmanmusic.com.

New Life For Jazz LPs

The new TT Record from Los Angeles-based American Audio looks like a traditional belt-driven turntable from the outside, and it is — but it’s also a digital recording device. When a vinyl record is placed on the turntable’s platter and played, its contents can be recorded and stored as an MP3 file on a USB memory stick or SD card. A completely standalone unit, the TT Record doesn’t require a computer or additional software to do its job. Transforming vinyl to digital with the TT Record is as simple as 1—2 – 3. Just place the old record on the turntable’s platter, insert a USB memory stick or SD card into the built-in slot, press the record button and your old vinyl track has been recorded in a digital format. The TT Record measures 17.75” x 14.5” x 5.75” (449 x 370 x 145 mm) and weighs just 9 lbs./3.8 kgs. It is power rated at 9 watts and has switchable voltage (115V/60Hz or 230V/50Hz). Suggested retail price of the TT Record is just under $280. www.americanaudio.us

Gearcheck Keilwerth SilverStar Sax

The new Keilwerth SilverStar saxophone is an anniversary model that celebrates 20 years of the Keilwerth SX90R series of horns. The SX 90 R uses tone hole rings which are soldered on to the standard drawn tone holes. The tone hole rings give the pads a longer life, and the rings themselves are easier to replace if necessary, because they are a separate piece from the tone hole. The production of darker, more immediate, less focused sound is an added benefit of the tone hole rings, which allow musicians to form their own individual voice. The SilverStar features a Black nickel plated brass body; a sterling silver neck; silver plated bell, bow and keywork; black pads; and black mother of pearl finger inlays. It has custom engraving commemorating this 20th anniversary and comes with an attractive case. There are both Alto and Tenor models and list prices range from $6,950 to $7,750. www.sonarewinds.com

T-Handle Drum Key

CruzTOOLS has announced the GrooveTech T-Handle Drum Key, which offers a novel approach to drum keys. Every drummer carries a compact drum key, which is wellsuited for normal tuning adjustments. It’s very limited, however, for certain operations. Head changes involve removal and replacement of six to twelve tension rods, each of which requiring a dozen revolutions in both directions. Power tools can be used, but aren’t always available and carry the risk of damage to the head from over tightening. The GrooveTech Thandle allows easy spinning of the rod, with proper feel for correct tensioning. A unique sliding handle allows extra leverage, which can be particularly useful for high-tension drum corps tuning and other applications requiring extra torque. Additionally, the drum key socket detaches from the T-handle using a standard 1/4” drive tip, allowing use of other sockets for various hardware needs. The GrooveTech is professional grade, using heat-treated Chrome Vanadium alloy for maximum strength, finished in polished chrome. The socket is manufactured to precise tolerances, with a thin wall that fits into wood rims. The GrooveTech T-Handle Drum Key, part number GTDKY1, measures 5 1/2” wide by 8” long and ships in a reusable vinyl pouch. Street price is $14.95. www.cruztools.com

Two Songwriting “for Dummies” Titles

Composing Digital Music For Dummies by Russell Dean Vines explains the basics of composing music with the hottest digital tools. Readers will see how to work with the latest hardware and software, build a tune and save it in different formats, and add instruments to the score. Vines explains advanced concepts and tricks like the basic 12-bar blues scale, tablature for guitar, the addition of background melodies, intros, and outros to a piece to make it more professional, as well as the basics of hooking up a guitar or keyboard to a computer, entering drum parts, and marking up scores. Music Composition for Dummies by Scott Jarrett and Holly Day is a simple, user-friendly guide that provides any budding composer with the tools he or she needs to create music. Assuming the reader has rudimentary knowledge of music theory, this title covers selecting rhythm and tempo for a composition, matching keys and chord progressions for various moods, working within the confines of musical form without confining creativity, and acquiring the discipline to come up with musical ideas even when your mind is drawing a complete blank. www.dummies.com

Backbeat

Mambo King

Israel “Cachao” López, 1918-2008 Largely responsible for introducing African rhythms to traditional Cuban danzón, leading to what is now known as “mambo,” bassist Israel “Cachao” López was a true musical pioneer. Cachao also helped forge the “descarga,” informal late-night jam sessions that reshaped modern Afro-Cuban jazz. An active musical performer since childhood, López benefited form early collaborations with the likes of Bola de Nieve and Roberto Faz. While playing contrabass with the Orquesta Filarmónica de La Habana as a teen, he was directed by a number of illustrious guest conductors including Heitor Villa-Lobos and Igor Stravinsky. Chachao’s time with his brother, Orestes, in Arcaño y sus Maravillas was hugely instrumental in molding the future of Cuban pop and jazz. As typified by the 1938 classic, “Mambo,” the danzóns composed by the López brothers for the orquesta introduced a deliberate, syncopated rhythm to pre-existing native musical forms. Cachao’s revolutionary descargas resulted in one milestone recording, Descargas en Miniature (Vampisoul). Following the Cuban revolution of 1959, López first relocated to New York and played with Tito Rodriguez and Eddie Palmieri before launching a wildly successful performance career in Las Vegas during the 1970s. After a decade of relative obscurity, Cachao gained newfound recognition after actor (and fellow Cuban) Andy Garcia assembled a tribute concert in 1992, financed the documentary, Cachao: Como Su Ritmo No Hay Dos, and co-produced (with Miami Sound Machine’s Emilio Estefan, Jr.), López’ Grammy-winning 1994 comeback album, Master Sessions, Volume 1 (Crescent Moon/Epic). Acclaimed performances and recordings followed, including 2003’s El Arte del Sabor (Blue Note), recorded with Bebo and Patato Valdés, which also received a Grammy nod as “Best Traditional Tropical Latin Album” and his own disc, ¡Ahora Si! (Univision) which earned the bassist his third Grammy award in 2005. Cachao Lopez passed away on March 22 at the age of 89.
