Pat Patrick’s Collection of a Lifetime

I

n 2006, shortly after Deval Patrick was inaugurated as Massachusetts’ first black governor, he received a call from the owner of storage warehouse in East Moline, Ill., who was clearing a space out and found the governor’s late father’s photos, notes, playbills, recordings, and record albums he’d acquired during his life as a jazz musician. When the governor’s father, saxophonist Pat Patrick, died of leukemia in 1991, boxes of his things were left unclaimed in a storage unit. On March 16, Boston’s Berklee College of Music announced that governor Patrick and his family had donated the collection to the college’s Africana Dr. Bill Banfield, director of Africana Studies, gives Mass.

CORRECTION: In the January 2010 JAZZed’s publication of Antonio Garcia’s “Jazz Curriculum Approval: An Insider’s Look,” we inadvertently attributed the author’s concluding viewpoints to John Davis. Tony’s remarks should have been highlighted as beginning with the words “In my first full-time university teaching position....” at the top of page 45.

Say What? “Though the Jazz Age continued, it became less and less of an affair of youth. The sequel was like a children’s party taken over by the elders.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald


noteworthy Spokane All City Jazz Ensembles Rob Tapper, Eastern Washington University’s director of jazz activities, has joined Spokane area schools to teach young students to speak the common language of jazz, through the Spokane All City Jazz Ensembles program. In the SAJE program, there are four middle school groups and five high school groups. Students become involved in SAJE through recommendations and approval from their school’s band director. Every year SAJE sends out information to area high school and middle school band directors about the program. The directors decide which students to recommend. The SAJE team groups them by instrument and calls the parents for permission. Students also hear about the program through involvement in the Jazz Dialogue Summer Camps program at EWU, a popular annual event since 2001. For more information, visit www.spokaneallcityjazz.org.

JAZZ EDUCATION NETWORK A MESSAGE FROM JEN PRESIDENT MARY JO PAPICH “We, the practitioners of this precious art form, have an enormous responsibility to stay true to the core values of jazz and the great players, composers, educators, and audiences who gave the best of their lives to this music --- are expecting us to take it forward.” ---- Kahil El’zabar Dear Friends, My intentions in starting JEN with Dr. Lou Fischer have been sincere and heartfelt. It was the right time to re-ignite an inspired jazz education community with a broad sense of inclusiveness and globalness. I believe we must embrace the music as inspiration for innovative thought and sharing. As we discussed at the Brubeck Institute last month, jazz is an art that is ever changing. We not only learn about music in jazz education, we learn about courage, risk taking, spirituality, humanity, humility ,and an ability to relate improvisation to all aspects of life! I believe JEN must completely embrace the spirit of innovation at the core of its purpose. We must allow and inspire improvisation in all aspects of teaching, performance, theory and living! Be innovative, encourage the young to find their own voice…and yet remain a place of homage for the true visionaries! We have a chance to express what Louis Armstrong always inspired in us all, a love for music and all humanity! Jazz education must be accessible to all people, and relative to all cultures! As friend Kahil El’zabar reminded me, jazz has always been a tool for conflict resolution and higher self development. We, the practitioners of this precious art form, have an enormous responsibility to stay true to the core values of jazz. The great players, composers, educators, and audiences who gave the best of their lives to this music are expecting us to take it forward. Kahil’s words inspired me on the weekend JEN was founded (June 1, 2008). As I write my final letter to you as the first President of JEN, so very many emotions come to mind over the last two years of experiences…devastation and unbelief have turned into pride of accomplishment and total hope and optimism for the future of our new organization and jazz education itself. It is with great enthusiasm that our board presents three days of quality performances, clinics, panels, and special events at this inaugural conference May 20-22. Register online now at www.JazzEdNet.org to attend this exciting and historic conference. The city of St. Louis and UMSL have opened up their arms to us for our first “jazz hang,” and it wouldn’t be happening without the hard work of UMSL Director of Jazz Studies, Jim Widner and his crew! His vision and determination, along with the hard work of the JEN Executive Committee and Board, have made this dream a reality. Many people are to be commended. Thank you, thank you, thank you…. This first conference is special because all performers are donating their time and talents to make this inaugural conference a quality one. All the planning has been done by volunteers. Special thanks to the students and staff of UMSL, Touhill, and the Millenium Student Center for hosting JEN. Thanks to my co-founder Lou Fischer, who has worked tirelessly and devoted more hours than you can imagine since JEN’s inception. Thanks to all of you who voted for the proposed Board of Directors new candidates. The new board members are Paul Bangser, Orbert Davis, Monika Herzog, and incumbents Paul Chiarvalle and Bob Sinicrope. Willard Jenkins has replaced founding board President’s Log member Steve Crissinger who is now serving as part time Office Manager. The newly elected will take office July 1. Thanks for May 8 All City Jazz Festival your continued support of the new JEN leadership. Outgoing board members Jackie Harris, Jim Widner, John Wittman have given - Chicago Public Schools/Chiselflessly and will be sorely missed.

“This year’s the rehearsal… Next year’s the GIG!” Jazz Education Network is sponsoring an instrument donation program called “A JENerosity Project” here in St. Louis to practice for next year’s donations at the JEN conference in New Orleans!

Conference attendees have been asked to bring used instruments that will be delivered to New Orleans later this month where Tipitina’s Foundation will distribute them to the school music programs. Items such as mouthpieces, jazz and concert band music, music stands, band uniforms and other things related to a functioning instrumental music program are also needed. New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz and the need is still great to help young jazz musicians there thrive. Tipitina’s Foundation has an instrument donation program already in place with a well-defined program of evaluating the requests from school’s needing instruments. The foundation owns all instruments so that if a school closes or loses its music program, the foundation can re-distribute the instruments to other deserving schools. Since New Orleans is no longer in the news, donations of instruments to Tipitina’s Foundation

have fallen to a trickle. JEN hopes to step up and fill that gap for two years. A letter of receipt for tax purposes will be provided by Tipitina’s Foundation to donors who request one. Only instruments in playing condition can be accepted since the foundation lacks the funds repair them. String instruments are also needed. Please drop off your instruments or supplies to the JENeral Store (Merchandise Booth) in the Student Center. Send an email to projectJENerosity@JazzEdNet.org if you have questions or suggestions. If you can’t donate this year then remember to start saving used instruments for the “real gig” at the 2011 JEN Conference in NOLA… together we make a difference!

A Chat With the Evolving Bassist

R

ufus Reid is one of the most acclaimed

figures in jazz today: As a performer, Reid has played with everyone from Dizzy Gillespie and Dexter Gordon to Michael Brecker and Lee Konitz; As a recording artist, he has over 300 album credits; As a band leader, he has cut over fifteen sets for various labels; And as a composer has won both the Guggenheim Fellowship for Creative Arts and the Charlie Parker Jazz Composition Award, amongst others. His influential book, The Evolving Bassist has been used by countless students and Reid is continuously recognized as one of the most important figures in both jazz and bass education. Still, even with all of the awards and honors, it seems as if Rufus is less concerned with being acknowledged and much more concerned with playing and teaching. If he isn’t working, it’s not for the lack of phone calls or effort; it’s because he doesn’t want to. And, it’s a rare day that Reid doesn’t want to work. It’s what he does, and it’s what he has to do, not for fame or fortune but because it’s his calling. When we sat down with Rufus to talk shop, he was getting ready to go on a 12-day tour that included clinics, performances, and workshops without a single day scheduled for travel or rest. JAZZed: Between teaching, playing and recording, you keep pretty busy. Do you still enjoy having such a packed schedule? Rufus Reid: Yes, very much so. This is what I’ve done my entire life. Obviously, I started out playing and then moved on to teaching in the mid ‘70s, but I’ve been able to keep a professional performance schedule while still being involved with education. So yes, I enjoy it; this is what I do. What I do best is play my bass, but it’s parallel now; I enjoy the academic aspect of teaching what I do and it’s been really good.


JAZZed: You started your musical career playing trumpet... RR: I did. JAZZed: What prompted you to switch to the bass? RR: I can only say that I was just infatuated with the bass – even when I was playing trumpet in high school. I was in the Air Force band as a trumpet player and we had a lot of time on our hands. So I began to take some of that time and teach myself how to play the bass. Five years later – when I got out of the military – I sold my trumpet and bought my bass the same week! JAZZed: Did you have any teachers who influenced the way you play? RR: Sure, as a young bassist my first real teacher – and he was a classical teacher – was James Harnnet, who was the principal bassist of the Seattle Washington Symphony. He whipped me into shape so that I could audition to music schools and get accepted. He was the first one that really took all these loose ends and focused them a little bit and it really prepared me. I got accepted to UCLA, Oberlin, Indiana University, and Northwestern, where I ended up going because it was in the Chicago area and Chicago was the mecca of a lot of music. So James Harnnet was really great. While I was in Chicago, the two gentlemen who where fantastic bassists and teachers were Warren Benfield, who was with the Chicago Symphony and was on the bass faculty at Northwestern, and then Joseph Guastafeste, who is principal bassist of the Chicago Symphony even to this day. I think he’s retiring pretty soon, which is amazing, but those two guys were very influential and as I began to play the bass a little bit better they helped me fine tune my playing. Not teaching me how to play jazz really, but just how to play the instrument better. JAZZed: It sounds like most of your experience as a student was in the classical world. What prompted you to play jazz? 20 JAZZed May 2010

RR: Listening to the music – when I was in grade school and high school – particularly in high school. My band director in high school just died maybe about three or four years ago. I’d kept in contact with him throughout my career and I realized, because you never know this when you’re in school, how much of an effect he had had on me and my development. I realized in retrospect that both the band director and orchestral directors that I had really taught us a lot of music. We listened to a lot of jazz; we listened to a lot of different things. I

remember in high school we actually looked at and played the original manuscript for Count Basie’s “Lil Darlin’.” I vividly remember reading that. So in retrospect, I realized that this band director really was kind of hip, and he was hippin’ us to the real deal and that was great. That’s why I really encourage the students to listen to the band directors and we encourage the band directors to teach things that are valuable. These people are real advisors and have real important information – not just data, but stuff that’s documented, that’s not just book learning.


JAZZed: Did your teachers affect the way you teach today? RR: I’m sure I acquired some of their basic techniques although I can’t really pinpoint any for you exactly. I’m sure I did learn from them the things that actually seem to click with me and to this day they do help me when I’m working with jazz students, who are having difficulty manipulating the in-

strument itself. I try to address some of those issues, so that the students’ creativity and their jazz concepts are able to surface. I think the most effective teachers are those who deal with what they have. I mean, there are a lot of things I could talk about and not have the student interact [with me] at all, but that’s not really effective because you really need to have the ability to see what the

student really can do and cannot do. Then you go from there, so I think it’s a lot more effective if you can personalize the lesson to the needs of the student. I don’t have an absolute routine that I use. It’s much more challenging for me to get them to tell me what it is they want to learn. That way, they can actually see themselves getting and understanding the concepts that I’m trying to get across to them. JAZZed: Your known as “the evolving bassist.” How do you personally tackle new musical concepts? RR: Thats a good question. Sometimes teachers themselves don’t do what they suggest the students do and I find myself having to keep telling myself, you know? If I’m working on something that needs to be addressed rather quickly or how there are ways to get right to the core of things and work it out which needs time and a particular focus and so occasionally, I have to tell myself: “Do what you would tell someone else to do.” And that’s great, because a really good teacher is helps the students learn how to teach themselves to solve a problem if they have one. JAZZed: What’s the hardest thing about teaching jazz? RR: A lot of the students, once they learn certain things, they leave it right there instead of taking it and moving forward. It’s much more of a challenge, and nobody really wants to make mistakes. Unfortunately, all the stuff everybody learns today, if they play it incorrectly they say, “Oh, man – I just made a mistake. I’m really sorry.” In the classical world, you’re not allowed and you never really have been allowed to change anything. Once you do that, you really have gone into the dead zone. In the jazz world, some of these kids are approaching it in a classical way and leaving the material where it is, as they learned it. You know, I keep saying if you listen to a Horace Silver record or an Art Blakey record and you say, “Man, it’s fantastic.” Well I can guarantee if they recorded it the next night and played

the same tunes everything would be different again. Of course we take this little picture and then live with that picture as if that’s it, and that’s just absurd! JAZZed: How do you maintain the balance of being a solid player while still taking risks? RR: You can’t really take risks on something that you don’t know really well. If you want to enhance or to be able to manipulate things within the structure and still not lose the essence of whatever that composition is, the only really successful way to do that is to really understand that composition really, really well. How is it structured? What makes the structure the structure? What makes the sound the sound? You might have thirty-two measures, but only one sound. This sound doesn’t sound like “Green Dolphin Street,” it doesn’t sound like “Freedom Jazz Dance,” and it doesn’t sound like “My Funny Valentine.” It has its own sound. It may have a bunch of chords in it and everything

when they’re really calculated – they’re calculated risks not just blind moves. So, until you’re really confident that you can do it without reading the music, once you can actually hear the sound, then you can manipulate and you can begin to create other things and still be suc“the most effective teachers are those who cessful. I always tell my bass players that we have the unique ability to completely deal with what they have.” sabotage every band we play in when we lose track of our job. Because we’re dealelse, but until you can hear that as an entity, you can’t really ing with the rhythm and the harmony and if either one of manipulate it with any kind of competence.

“a real good teacher helps students learn how to teach themselves to solve a problem if they have one.”

JAZZed: So the bass player is like the glue that holds the band together? RR: The bass player’s role is to create the stability of the group and it’s the bass players responsibility to make that ensemble sound better than it would without them. The bass player is responsible for connecting with the drummer and when they become one, then they can connect with the pianist or guitarist, and that becomes the rhythm section. The bass player is really the catalyst of the success of the ensemble, incredibly so. In the jazz straight ahead kind of concept, you know – we only play quarter notes… It’s simple, but its not that simple. When you look at it, it is simple but it isn’t really that simple to caress the sound and make the bass lines functional and creative at the same time. JAZZed: Do you believe that the ability to make bass lines functional and creative can be taught or is it intuitive? 24 JAZZed May 2010

RR: That there are those who instinctively or intuitively understand what needs to be done. That being said, although I really feel that I have a kind of a natural instinct of what should be done, that doesn’t mean that it can’t be made better by that much more of a thought process to assure that I have a higher percentage of success. It can be taught to those whose natural intuitive stuff is not maybe as high as one might want. I do feel I have an approach to help instill a higher percentage of these concepts. Listening to other bass players is great, and a lot of credence is put on the transcriptions, which I agree with. But, ultimately, the player has to come up with his or her own lines and they have to be satisfying and they still have to be functional and at the same time be melodic, so there is a lot of thought that has to go into the success of that. First, you have to understand the components. Basically, there’s a harmonic melody and then a melodic

melody. So there are two things to deal with and, as far as I’m concerned, you need to understand both because one can’t function without the other. It’s not to say that the bass player has to be able to play the melody that the horns play all the time, but they should know how that melody sounds because it has a direct relationship to the bass function. In really solid compositions, the harmony is pretty much there already, so if the bass player can hear the melody he or she should be able to hear an appropriate bass line that will compliment the harmony. They can’t be inseparable so the player really has to understand why these things work and why you can’t do this at this point in time or why that doesn’t really enhance the music. JAZZed: How do you work on developing your own sound? RR: That’s the challenge for us all. Everybody wants to be individual, but I never thought about being an individual – there was just something in me. I wanted to try to play like Ray Brown, I wanted to try play like Eddie Gomez, and I could play like either one of them. Then when it really boiled down to it, I began to understand that there where some other things that – I won’t say worked better, but it was something that I thought was good, too. One of the difficulties that we have now, because we have people studying in a controlled academic setting, is we tend to perpetuate a cookie cutter concept of this music. But, I would still say that the players still have to – and they want to – be individuals. It’s hard, though, because you take that information and you have to force them:

“Don’t play what you just learned, do it another way, don’t do what you’ve been working on.” You know? It’s just like vocabulary. People can learn the vocabulary, but they still have to learn how to speak and then construct their own sentences and develop things without plagiarizing. Ray Brown, Paul Chambers, Oscar Pettiford, Bill Henton – they’re with me. I keep them with me all the time. When you hear me play, you’re hearing a little bit of all of them and I think that if people began to incorporate that approach into their whole being, it can’t be denied. People want to know that bass players have studied or at least know who Ray Brown is or Paul Chambers or John Coltrane or Stan Getz or Joe Henderson. They have to know these people because that’s the core, that’s their substance of where they’re coming from. But, they have to deliver it in a different way, and that requires a lot of attention.

JAZZed: What advice do you have for young musicians? RR: If they really want to play this music that we call jazz and become creative, if they really want to contribute, and be considered part of the lineage of the music, they have to be serious. They have to have the passion – you have to have passion to do anything successful whether it be music or anything else, for that matter – and you have to do it without worrying about people telling you that don’t make a lot of money if you do this. If someone has to be controlling you to practice, so that you’ll become a better player, then that’s not good enough. You do things because you just have to and if you really want to be serious about this music and really contribute to the lineage, check the history. All these people – they were driven, they had to do this. I have to do what I’m doing.

Those who play this music are intelligent people. They have to be in order to really get into it, because it’s a music that’s food for your brain. It inspires a lot of things and most of the people who are really incredibly creative, they love literature, they love art, they are inquisitive about other things – not just in one area. They still may only have one forte, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have other interests. For most people, the response to maybe becoming a professional musician is, “Give me a break! Don’t you want to make some money? Don’t you want to do this first? Don’t you want to be famous?” That thought never enters into the minds of the jazz musicians I know who move people. I have more passion now than I did when I was younger because I’m able to think and do more things than I ever have before. So, my advice is really just to be serious and be honest with yourself, and if you don’t really want to work, go stand in line at the post office or something like that. JAZZed May 2010 25

RESOURCE GUIDE

Web site: www.chijazzphil.org Our History:

The Chicago Jazz Philharmonic (CJP) was born out of an invitation to Artistic Director Orbert Davis from the Jazz Institute of Chicago to “think big” when planning his appearance at the 2004 Chicago Jazz Festival. The performance marked the first time for a resident Chicago Jazz artist to headline this world renowned festival, not to mention, being accompanied by a 55+ piece symphonic jazz orchestra. The scope and scale of the performance was certainly unlike anything the Chicago Jazz Festival has ever witnessed. To date, Chicago Jazz Philharmonic has impacted audiences as diverse as its artistry—57,000 and growing! Our Mission: The mission of the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic is to present high quality musical performances and music education programs that will bridge gaps in genre, artistry and diversity. The organization seeks to become an internationally respected orchestra defined by its cross collaborations in jazz, classical, and other musical genres while working with schools to provide a linear track for music instruction, performance and enrichment from kindergarten through college.

Founded in 2001, the Mason-Dixon Jazz Camp at Gettysburg College has provided an exceptional jazz experience for over five hundred aspiring high school musicians from ten states. Students ages 14-18 interested in learning about jazz may participate in jazz combos, big bands, and develop improvisation technique. Enrollment is purposely small to allow for individual attention, combo interaction, and balanced instrumentation. An outstanding faculty is led by Jim McFalls (Towson University) and George Rabbai (Rowan University). Situated on 200 acres of rolling Pennsylvania countryside, the Gettysburg campus is exceptionally beautiful. Many of its 60 buildings boast a rich history and, though their interiors have been dramatically renovated and include state-of-the-art classrooms, their exteriors reflect the style and

charm of the period of their architecture. A short walk from the campus lies the center of Gettysburg. Because of its historic significance, this town of 10,000 welcomes almost two million visitors annually from all over the world. Buzz Jones, Professor of Music at the Sunderman Conservatory at Gettysburg College, is founder and director of the MasonDixon Jazz Camp.

Throughout the week students will receive instruction and coaching from National Jazz Workshop staff that is focused on raising the level of performance of each participant.

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.

Many of the groups have toured nationally and internationally, and are featured during our annual Jazz and World Music Festival. The Conservatory’s Jazz Faculty, including Scott Belck (trumpet), Michael Cox (saxophone), Ryan Hamilton (trombone), Mark Flugge (piano), Stan Smith (guitar), Lou Fischer (bass), Bob Breithaupt (drums), and Eric Paton (world percussion), plus several additional adjunct experts, perform on stages both nationally and throughout the world.

The School For Music Vocations (at Southwestern Community College) – located in Creston, Iowa – is unlike any other music college in the nation. It is an intense 2-year program (students earn their Associate’s Degree), which focuses on offering a variety of skills in jazz and classical music, not typically offered by any one degree at other colleges. The 40 students, from around the United States and Canada, are instructed by 15 faculty members. Every semester students take classes in: Music Theory, Jazz Keyboard, Classical Piano, Vocal/Instru-

mental Arranging. Throughout their tenure, students also take classes in Solo Jazz Performance, Aural Skills, Improvisation, Recording Studio Production and Performance, Conducting and Rehearsal Techniques. Ensembles at the school include multiple instrumental jazz combos, five vocal jazz ensembles, jazz guitar ensemble, concert choir, and concert band. All ensembles tour regionally, nationally, and/or internationally throughout the school year. At the end of every semester, each student presents a Final Project recital, which incorporates all skills learned throughout the semester. Students who graduate the program typically transfer to a 4-year Bachelor’s program, and often much further ahead other students their age.

For more than 40 years at the University of Idaho, the Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival has brought jazz masters together with elementary, junior high, high school and college students to share and celebrate a truly American art form of music. The Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival has grown from a one day event to an amazing four-day experience! The first University of Idaho Jazz Festival took place in 1967, with a dozen student groups and one guest artist, Buddy Brisboe. The Festival continued to grow from there – erupting onto the national stage in 1981, when students and spectators packed in to hear Ella Fitzgerald. In 1984, the Festival’s most important relationship took shape when Lionel Hampton joined the excitement in Moscow. Inspired by the enthusiasm of the students, Hamp pledged his support to the Festival. In 1985, the festival took on his name, becoming the first and only jazz festival named for an African-American jazz musician. In 2006, John Clayton, renowned bassist, arranger, composer, jazz educator and long time Festival friend, joined the Festival as artistic director. Since taking the reins, John’s enthusiasm and passion has filled the hearts of directors, students, staff and friends. As the Festival enters its fifth decade, it will continue to further Hamp’s vision and legacy for perpetuating jazz music education for generations to come. With John Clayton’s great ability to educate, and his love for Hamp, the Festival is in good hands and is moving forward at an incredible rate.

Mandolin Brothers, Ltd. is considered by nearly every living guitarist worldwide to be one of the most well-known sources on earth for great guitars, banjos, and mandolins. Even those who have never heard Joni Mitchell’s song that begins “I went to Staten Island, Sharon, to buy myself a mandolin....” understand that Staten Island, New York is where the instruments of their dreams reside.

Woodwind & Brasswind

Welcome to the new world of musical instruments! My lifelong commitment to music began first as a professional musician and teacher, then as a recognized innovator in the musical instrument business. I was inspired to create Music Factory Direct, a unique and exciting means to purchase the highest quality instruments at the very best price. I traveled the world to find dedicated manufacturers to create high quality instruments to exacting standards. I cut out the middleman to deliver a vast assortment of musical instruments and equipment. Music Factory Direct brands include Briolette, Vento, L.A. Sax, Kenny G, Eagletone, Jinyin America, Orpheo, Wurzbach, Paco, Prodipe and Noteworthy.

Woodwind & Brasswind is pleased to announce that we are celebrating over 30 years in business. For the past 30 years we have never lost sight of our vision — offering our customers the best selection of products at the best prices with unmatched expertise and customer service. As musicians, we understand that you are not just purchasing a musical instrument — you are making an investment in your art, your passion, your life. This anniversary year is very important to us and we are glad that you have turned to Woodwind & Brasswind for your next musical instrument.

jazz educator's nance, balance, projection and enhanced valve action are examples of the visionary thinking of the engineers who collaborated to make this custom trumpet a reality. With a complete line-up of Bb & C trumpets along with a true classical model w/ Sterling Silver lead pipe and a rose brass bell, Phaeton recently added a magnificent 4 valve Bb/A Piccolo trumpet with optional 18 K Bell and trim that fully compliments the rich bright silver plate of the instrument. A great Pocket Trumpet that has all the features of a well equipped full size Bb Trumpet scores with many players looking for an added horn for special events and venues. A .460 bore coupled with a full size bell makes this horn most desirable. Adding a Flugelhorn with the sought after “direct air column” feature, is now available from Phaeton in 3 popular finishes: Rose Brass, Gray Onyx and Matte Silver with bright bell inside. Phaeton Trumpets are available in Black Onyx, Bright Silver, Matte Silver, Brush Brass and Rose Brass. The revolutionary FX-1100 Bb Phaeton model has gone far beyond any other trumpet with its 3 sets of interchangeable braces which provide any player with an infinite number of brace combinations to “tweak” the most elusive artistic timbres. This is truly an optimal performance horn.

The Eau Claire Jazz Festival brings world-class jazz artists to western Wisconsin. Concerts occur over the four-day event, featuring world renowned jazz instrumentalists and vocalists. The festival, held annually in April, is the culminating event of a two week community-wide celebration of jazz. The festival highlights the rich history and influence that Jazz has had on our culture by incorporating art and music. The strong educational component is one feature that makes the Eau Claire Jazz Festival unique. In addition to student musicians from middle schools, high schools, and colleges in the upper Midwest who come for the educational experience, the expanded community-wide focus provides community members and visitors to view jazz inspired art, attend educational workshops or enjoy jazz music at one of many local cafes or restaurants. Whether you are a director interested in participating next year or a visitor coming to enjoy the live jazz music, art and overall ambiance of Eau Claire, we encourage you to view the Eau Claire Jazz Festival as a destination event to return to annually. Join us next year, April 7-10 for an exciting weekend celebration of jazz! You can follow us on Facebook & Twitter.

Our History: The Chicago Jazz Philharmonic (CJP) was born out of an invitation to Artistic Director Orbert Davis from the Jazz Institute of Chicago to “think big” when planning his appearance at the 2004 Chicago Jazz Festival. The performance marked the first time for a resident Chicago Jazz artist to headline this world renowned festival, not to mention, being accompanied by a 55+ piece symphonic jazz orchestra. The scope and scale of the performance was certainly unlike anything the Chicago Jazz Festival has ever witnessed. To date, Chicago Jazz Philharmonic has impacted audiences as diverse as its artistry—57,000 and growing! Our Mission: The mission of the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic is to present high quality musical performances and music education programs that will bridge gaps in genre, artistry and diversity. The organization seeks to become an internationally respected orchestra defined by its cross collaborations in jazz, classical, and other musical genres while working with schools to provide a linear track for music instruction, performance and enrichment from kindergarten through college.

RECORDING ARTISTS/INSTRUCTORS/PERFORMERS Our History: The Chicago Jazz Philharmonic (CJP) was born out of an invitation to Artistic Director Orbert Davis from the Jazz Institute of Chicago to “think big” when planning his appearance at the 2004 Chicago Jazz Festival. The performance marked the first time for a resident Chicago Jazz artist to headline this world renowned festival, not to mention, being accompanied by a 55+ piece symphonic jazz orchestra. The scope and scale of the performance was certainly unlike anything the Chicago Jazz Festival has ever witnessed. To date, Chicago Jazz Philharmonic has impacted audiences as diverse as its artistry—57,000 and growing! Our Mission: The mission of the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic is to present high quality musical performances and music education programs that will bridge gaps in genre, artistry and diversity. The organization seeks to become an internationally respected orchestra defined by its cross collaborations in jazz, classical, and other musical genres while working with schools to provide a linear track for music instruction, performance and enrichment from kindergarten through college.

2011 is the 70th anniversary of the Stan Kenton Orchestra, the 100th anniversary of Stan Kenton’s birthday, and the 20th anniversary of the Stan Kenton Alumni Band. The Stan Kenton Alumni Band will be touring extensively to commemorate these important events. We will be climbing aboard the band bus for an extended tour in April and May of 2011, plus doing other dates around the country as they come in. We are looking to perform at festivals, universities, colleges, high schools, jazz societies, concerts, dances, and any other places or events that would enjoy having our band appear. We also have some open dates in the fall of 2010. If you have any interest in hiring the Stan Kenton Alumni Band, please get in touch with us, as we are already working on bookings for Fall 2010 and all of 2011. Also, our latest CD has been released on Summit Records. It is “Have Band Will Travel” and was recorded on our 2009 East Coast Tour. It is receiving rave reviews. It is available at www. bigbandjazz.net

“Kenny Dorham - Major BeBop Trumpet Stylist” Interview, New York City, November 12, 1971 From the book, Notes and Tones, Musician-to-Musician Interviews, by Arthur Taylor, DA CAPO PRESS. Excerpted and compiled by Dr. Larry Ridley, jazz artist, professor of Music Emeritus, at Rutgers University, and, AAJC executive director. Arthur Taylor: Would you tell me how you became interested in music? Kenny Dorham: “Well, my sister heard Louis Armstrong in about 1936, and she mentioned the fact that they called him “Gabriel”, saying he must be the Gabriel written about in the Bible. I was about eight or nine years old at the time, and when I was playing the piano, my sister used to say to my mother, “See how he jumps around when he plays? Maybe he’s going to be a great musician like Louis Armstrong.” Then I got a chance to listen to “Pops” on some records, and it kinda started from there. In 1936, I moved to Austin, Texas, with my uncle and went to high school there. It was at high school that I really got into the trumpet. I had a friend who lived down the street from me, and he played the trumpet. He used to go to East St. Louis every summer, and he knew Clark Terry and Miles Davis. He would tell me how those guys could really play the trumpet. Texas was pretty well known for having good trumpet players, because they had a lot of football games and competitive band meets. In 1939, my sister persuaded my father to buy me a fourteen dollar trumpet. I had it for a week or two, and the bandmaster suggested I ought to have a better trumpet which would at least play in tune, so that I wouldn’t get discouraged before I learned something. Well, they got me a silver Conn trumpet. It took me a half-hour to even get a sound out of it. Then I began going to band practice, where they start you right out in the books. After you learn the fingering you start to play etudes and concert stuff. After two days in rehearsal I was sent home by the bandmaster, who was very stern about music. He didn’t allow you to play jazz or anything until you had learned all the fundamentals of music. I was sitting in the band and I started playing “Dipsy Doodle,” which I had heard Larry Clinton’s orchestra play. I was stomping my foot, and the guys were behind the curtain urging me on. The bandmaster looked over his glasses, pointed at me and hollered, “Leave the bandstand! Leave the music room and don’t come back.” He spoke to my parents, and I got my discipline together for the music room. From then on I was just a student and not trying to do anything special. Whenever I wanted to do a little extracurricular stuff like jazz, I did it in our barn, which was a great resonator for music. You blew in there and you had all this good wood, it really made a great sound. I sometimes used to practice in that barn for five or six hours a day. After learning all the band music at marches and playing like Louis Armstrong in the barn, I heard Roy Eldridge, and he was a big influence on me. Later I heard some Charlie Parker, because my friend who lived down the street had all the hip records. I first heard Charlie Parker on a Jay McShann record; I think he was playing “Swingin’ the Blues Away”, and it sounded so great that I learned the solo. I

80 JAZZed May 2010

started to try and play the trumpet like Bird. After listening to Walter Fuller, who used to play with the Earl Hines band, I started playing like him, too. He played a strong punctuation style. Finally I got to listen to some Dizzy, and that was the most fantastic trumpet I had ever heard. Although Louis Armstrong’s music was beautiful and melodious, Dizzy’s was something else. So I started to play Dizzy’s solos, too. I was playing like all these different trumpet players: Walter Fuller, Louis Armstrong, Roy Eldridge and Dizzy Gillespie. When I started going to college, I was too late to get into the band, so I worked in the kitchen, washing dishes and helping prepare food for the students. I got to know a lot of guys there like Russell Jacquet and Wild Bill Davis. Davis wrote music for the college band, and they played in the style of Jimmy Lunceford and Milt Larkin.

AT: Would you tell me about the period in your career when you were playing with Bird and Dizzy? KD: When I first came to New York, I was working in the house band at the Savoy Ballroom. I would always go in and out of the bands with another trumpet player from Texas called Henry Boozier, because they needed a first trumpet player and a soloist. At that time I played a lot of first trumpet and I also soloed, but Boozier was mostly a first man with a big, pretty sound like Freddie Webster. By the fall of 1944, I had started going to Minton’s, and Lockjaw Davis invited us to play there one night. He liked our playing, and he gave us an open invitation to come and play anytime we wanted. I met Dizzy, Fats Navarro and Miles at Minton’s. I had met Miles before on Fiftysecond Street. I had also met Dizzy before, because when I first came to New York, I really came looking for him. He was going to start a big band, and he invited us to


jazzforum audition for it. The next day we went to the big band rehearsal at Minton’s Playhouse, and we got the gig. We stayed with Dizzy during the whole time he had his first big band, and I learned a lot playing with him. I sang a couple of tunes in the band, but later I got him a singer from Fort Worth called Dexter Armstrong. When we were on tour, I learned a lot of things Dizzy did that I could kind of duplicate, and from that point on I really started to grow musically. I was writing Basie arrangements. I would try to get the sound of Ellington arrangements without much success, but I knew what I was doing. Bird used to come to Minton’s, and he was so great that everybody would leave the bandstand when he played. All the bad saxophone players showed him respect and let him have the bandstand. They would sit down and listen. Dizzy would usually play with him, or sometimes Miles or Fats. Dizzy, Lorraine Gillespie, Sarah Vaughan and I used to hang out at Minton’s and play a lot at that time. After being in Dizzy’s band I took Fats Navarro’s place in Billy Eckstine’s band. Later I played in about twenty other big bands in New York, for anywhere from one day to three weeks or a month. I was living up on Sugar Hill at 157th Street, and Harry Belafonte, who was working at the Royal Roost with Bird, came by one day to let me know that Bird wanted to speak to me. So I went down to see Bird, and he told me that Miles was leaving to form his own band and that I could have the job if I wanted. I went there the following night; that was on Christmas Eve, 1948. I played with Bird from then on at the Royal Roost through the spring of 1949, when we went to Paris for a French festival. I was with him for about a year after that. Then he started doing things with strings where he didn’t use a trumpet, so I started to play with various people again. In the fifties I started to do things on my own. I made my first record date as a leader in 1954 for Charles Mingus. I was writing a lot of songs; in fact, I wrote some for your record date and for Freddie Hubbard. I have between seventy-six and eighty songs registered as a BMI publisher. But I had a family, and

it was hard to do a lot of different things, so I got an advance on the publishing company and later sold it.

AT: Would you tell me more about Bird? KD: Well Bird was a real happy person, and it never seemed like he had any acute traumatic grievances. He knew our society wasn’t right, and he would talk about it sometimes. His thing was like he’d just get high and blank that other part out. I guess he saw it wasn’t going to get together in his lifetime. We made a lot of nice trips together. Just before going to Paris, we worked in Milwaukee, and Bird had to go back to New York one day for something. He returned to the job at twelve o’clock that night. The job started at nine or nine-thirty and we played until two a.m. The place was jammed. Bird came in, perspiring. He

“Bird really painted Milwaukee red!” had on that black pinstripe suit…he was famous for that suit! He was happy, and he came up on the bandstand. Although we had missed him, we had been having a lot of fun, and we had everything rolling. This was in the early spring, and it was a little warm that night. He called a tune I had never heard before called “Painting the Town Red”. He played that for about half an hour, and each chorus was more fantastic than the one that had preceded it. After he had been playing for about ten minutes, I said to myself, what is he going to do next? Because, everything was flawless; it was perfect. I sat down in a corner of the bandstand, crossed my legs and just listened to him play. Max Roach, Al Haig and Tommy Potter were in the rhythm section, and it was beautiful. Bird really painted Milwaukee red that night! When it was over, Bird asked me what I wanted to play, and I said, “Do you know “Circus’?” And he started singing

it. I said “Yeah, that’s it.” He said, “Okay, let’s play some ‘Circus’.” He let me play the melody and the first solo on it. This kind of triggered my feeling for the song. Although I had never played it with Bird, I knew that Al Haig was familiar with it. Bird just played his can off on that. Between times I never saw Bird. He was very mysterious. The only time I would see him was on the job. I had only one rehearsal during the whole time I was in the group, Because, I knew all the tunes Bird played and just how he played them, which I guess is one reason I got the gig. I could play the ensembles so that if on some nights he didn’t feel too well and might falter a little, I could hold the group together. When we did a record date, he would come to the date with some of the music written down; then he would write the rest of it at the date. We would run it down once or twice, look at it and play it off the sheet. Then we would record. It was really nice playing with Bird!

AT: Do you think musicians should use their music for political ends? KD: I’m not sure, because music is one thing and politics is another. Sometimes people manage to blend them, but most musicians look upon it as a gimmick. People from the world of politics look upon it as some kind of rabble-rousing weapon, especially in this country. The politics are used just to obtain some kind of recognition, to get some credit for what one is doing. They don’t really want to give you too much credit here for what you do, so they’re quick to holler on anything that sounds political, whether it’s a song or a poem. I’ve always had a feeling that it may not be a good thing to only want to be in the music, but that was the thinking of musicians who came up in the Louis Armstrong era. Pops wasn’t political; he was all music. Maybe one can’t afford to be all musical today, because politics have a lot to do with the economic situation musicians find themselves in. Maybe putting politics into music is okay if it’s advantageous to the musician. Musicians usually never benefit from anything. They can’t borrow money or get any

JAZZed May 2010 81


jazzforum kind of economic satisfaction. Recently there have been some endowment grants and humanities, and a few musicians have gotten a little money. The amount of money you get is kind of insulting. Musicians like myself and a few others I know, get such meager amounts. You figure, well, what was it all for? Maybe I should just have made bombs and have belonged to the destructive side of society. That may be why people mess with drugs; they feel it’s a way out, at least for as long as they’re high. Politics could be useful in music. The music business itself is a political machine. If you’re not managed by someone who is on the inside, you can float around out here for a lifetime and nothing ever happens. You see people come up who are less qualified, and everything is all rosy for them. Musicians will probably have to be more political in the future. They will certainly have to be businessmen, because they mustn’t leave it up to the guy in the booking agency. He’s their real enemy. Originally the booking agent was working for the musicians. He was like a secretary, who would keep their appointments and set things up. But somehow it got turned around. Instead of the booking agent working for the musician, the musician works for the booking agent. That’s all wrong! The musician now has to call the booking agent to find out when he can work. In the meantime, the booking agent is double-dealing, taking money under the table and on top of the table and looking out for his own interest, not the musicians’. That’s political!”

AT: What do you think about electronics? KD: I think electronics is a part of automation, and it’s removing the human aspect of the work. It’s eliminating the effort of the man who owns the hand. It’s not a natural thing and it can never be as good as the human element. It’s the kind of thing which defeats itself. That’s political, too, because they try to eliminate people from different walks of life. Then the people are controlled by just a few elements. You get ready for music,

82 JAZZed May 2010

you go to the machine. You get ready for milk, you go to the machine. Everything is going to the machine, and it’s losing that natural thing. It will probably affect the physiology of man. It’s got to change his chemistry, and we may develop into monsters or freaks.

AT: Do you do any kind of physical exercise? KD: I haven’t done much recently, but I used to do a lot. When I was in the army, I did boxing. I started in high school because I was playing the trumpet and I was getting roughed up a bit. When I was living in Oakland, I used to box at John Henry Lewis’s gym with some of the pros who fought out of Oakland. I don’t know if you remember John Henry Lewis, but he fought Joe Louis and got knocked out. He had two brothers who would box at the gym. In Oakland, I used to do a lot of exercising, and I would run halfway around Lake Merritt. My trainer’s name was Al Moore. He had a fighter named Lenny Morrow from Tulsa, Oklahoma, who was the light heavyweight champion of California at one time. He knocked out Oakland Billy Smith, who later became known as Boardwalk Billy Smith. He also knocked out Archie Moore, though he was later knocked out by Archie. Al Moore had a lot of good fighters who used to fight in Nevada and California back in the fifties. I also worked for the United States naval ammunition depot. I helped make rocket shells with yellow powder. That’s the powder which goes into those 54 pound rocket heads for ships. They had black powder and yellow powder. I worked in the rooms where all those powders were. We put the powder in the shells with compressors. We didn’t put the detonators on. We just inserted a fuse, and the rest was added on when it got to where it was going or when they were ready to use it. I also did a lot of boxing in New York, where I used to go to the Uptown Gym on 116th Street with John Lednam, “Skippy”. Do you remember Skippy?

AT: Yeah, I remember Skippy. KD: I used to go to the gym with Skippy and keep time for him. Artie Towns was in Sugar Ray Robinson’s stable, and I used to keep time for him, too. Miles also used to come and work out. I never did go into the ring. I used to just work on the bags. The guys would always be pushing you up to box because they liked to dust you if they got the chance. I stayed out of that because I was trying to lay with the music. So I’ve done a lot of exercise over a long period of time, but for the last year or two, I haven’t done much except for riding a bike and things like that. AT: Are you religious? KD: That’s quite a question to try and answer. When I was growing up, I used to ask my father about religion, and he would tell me about God. He was not very educated, but he knew about the Bible and he had some sense about it. I wondered why we were so poor if God had all these powers. We were supposed to be good people, so why were we poor? And there were people who were bad and were very rich. So I sort of lost my faith in religion then. Religion is also political. It’s used to keep world order. If people didn’t have something to believe in, it would be impossible to keep order on this earth. It would be suicidal. But believing in something that you can’t see, believing that there is a hereafter, believing all these things can make life on earth tolerable, if not worthwhile. AT: Do you think our music stems from Africa? KD: Maybe instinctively! A lot of it is instinctive. We learned our tools here, but it probably came from Africa, because we inherited something that goes from tribe to tribe. It has to do with how we are put together. Although we are similar to everyone else on earth, we are still different. We have something that’s unique, just as every other race has something that’s unique. So our African roots underlay the historical evolution of our music, but the rest was developed from our trials and tribulations


jazzforum on the plantation. And we’re still on the plantation!

AT: Do you change your technique in any way when you’re playing in a studio, as compared to when you’re working in a club? KD: In a studio I try to concentrate more on finesse, to play flawlessly. I might not be as inventive as I would be in a club, because there I can try to straighten it out while I’m doing it. It takes a lot of nerve to do that when you know you’re going to hear it played back. It’s not as loose when you’re playing in a studio as it is when you’re playing in a club. In a recording you really want to turn it on. You lean in wherever your position is from the microphone and try to take care of it from there. Whereas in a club, anything goes!

AT: What do you think about the stigma that’s been put on musicians regarding their use of drugs? KD: Usually it’s upper-middle-class people who put a stigma on musicians. Unfortunately a few of them happen to be black. This stigma has a political angle. When you have a stigma on you, it affects your earning power—you can’t make money. Drugs have always been on the scene, and musicians are noticed because they are always in the public eye. Whereas, other people who are not in the spotlight, can slip and slide around for their whole lifetime. Whatever a musician does is known, because people like to talk about musicians. AT: To wrap it up, would you tell me what you plan for the future?

KD: Musically, I will probably end up working for the Board of Education. That’s what I’ve been working toward. I have been going to school to get my degree. A degree is your ticket to something that’s fairly stable. It’s much more stable than being a musician. I always knew this, so I always went to school; but I never took music before I got to New York, because I was a science major. I plan to teach at the University of Connecticut or else I might go to the New England Conservatory in Boston. I’m going there as a resident for two weeks. Richard Davis will be there, too. I plan to lead a quiet life while still playing and writing music, doing the things I want to do and just trying to live like people. I might occasionally make some concert tours to Japan, South America or Europe, but my main goal is to be in education. I can teach a lot of subjects, like English, music or chemistry.

Herb Ellis 1921 - 2010

Jazz guitarist Herb Ellis passed away at his home in Los Angeles on March 28. Ellis was born in Farmersville, Texas and played banjo and harmonica as a child before taking up guitar. He studied at North Texas State Teachers College (now the University of North Texas), one of the first colleges to offer instruction in jazz, and would later become the first schools to offer a degree in jazz. Herb was best known as the talented soloist in the Oscar Peterson Trio during the 1950s. The Group recorded many songs and developed a reputation in later years among jazz aficionados. The Trio also served as the house band for Norman Granz’s Verve record label and on Granz’s Jazz at the Philharmonic concerts. After spending five years with the Peterson Trio, Ellis then toured with Ella Fitzgerald and settled in southern California, where he worked in movie and television studios before launching his own small jazz groups. In 1963, Herb recorded with fellow guitarist Charlie Byrd and, not long after, formed the group, Great Guitars, with Byrd and Barney Kessel. Herb Ellis died of complications associated with Alzheimer’s disease. He was 88.
