D

iana Krall returns to her native Canada in June for her first-ever large-scale solo performances at this year’s Festival International de Jazz de Montreal. The singer-pianist will be back for the first time since the festival’s 25th anniversary in 2004. “We asked her to go out of her way and do something special and suggested an octet or big band,” festival co-founder and artistic director Andre Menard said at a recent press conference in Boston. “She replied saying

Inaugural Blue Note Jazz Fest In honor of its 30th anniversary, NYC’s Blue Note jazz club will host the first inaugural Blue Note Jazz Festival during the month of June. Throughout the month, more than 80 shows featuring established jazz legends and rookie experimentalists will take place across the city.

Wein will perform at the Blue Note’s Festival in mid-June. Performers will include Dave Brubeck, Bobby McFerrin, Brian Wilson, The Roots, Duncan Sheik, and Chaka Khan, among others. The Festival events will take place all over the city, including Highline Ballroom, B.B King’s, Terminal 5 and Mercury Lounge. There will also be an act at Central Park’s Summerstage, which has yet to be announced. For more information, visit www.bluenotejazzfestival.com.

that she wanted to do a solo performance. She’s never done that since she became a professional musician, so it’s exciting.” Krall will be performing from June 2628 at the Theatre Maisonneuve. Other heavy-hitters scheduled to perform include Robert Plant, Dave Brubeck, Tony Bennett, and Esperanza Spalding. This year’s Festival takes place from Saturday, June 25 to Monday, July 4.

Monk Institute of Jazz Performance Leaving Loyola

F

our years after establishing a New Orleans program to prepare musicians to teach and perform jazz, the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance will end its postgraduate curriculum at Loyola University after this year’s students graduate. The Institute of Jazz Performance is expected to open at the Herb Alpert School of Music at UCLA in September of 2012. The Monk Institute will continue to have a presence at New Orleans and at Loyola. “I’m excited that they’re going to be staying here in this slightly altered form, so we will not close our connection with them,” said Donald Boomgaarden, dean of Loyola’s College of Music and Fine Arts.

Montreux Jazz Festival Announces Lineup

The Montreux Jazz Festival has lined up Seal, Santana, and Sting for its 45th annual concert in July, organizers announced in April – two days earlier than planned, after leaks of the lineup appeared online, Reuters reported. They will join Susan Tedeschi, B.B. King, George Benson, Naughty by Nature, Wayne Shorter, Diana Krall, Dr. John, and others for the musical gathering in Switzerland. For more information, visit www.montreuxjazz.com.

Aretha Franklin – who was briefly out of commission after undergoing unspecified surgery last fall and canceling performances through May of this year on doctor’s orders – is confirmed to be opening The TD Toronto Jazz Festival’s 25th anniversary with a free opening night show on June 24. The Queen of Soul will be accompanied by her 14 musicians and the 10-piece Toronto Jazz Festival Orchestra under the direction of trumpet ace Guido Basso.

Inaugural Mesquite Jazz Festival

The first ever Mesquite (Nev.) Jazz Festival will be presented on the grounds of the CasaBlanca Resort July 15-17. Scheduled to perform at the event will be four groups including Reynolds Brothers Rhythm Rascals of Santa Ana, Calif., Titanic, a Los Angeles-based group; Uptown Lowdown Jazz Band of Seattle, Wash; and Sally’s Jazznuts. Activities will kick off Friday, July 15 at 7 p.m. in the CasaBlanca Showroom. For more information or to purchase passes, visit www.mesquitejazz.com.

Are We Really Paying People to Show up Now…?

Is it so bad for jazz groups these days that musicians are reduced to offering cash to potential audience members? That seems to be the philosophy of the Jazz Composers Alliance Orchestra. The group, a Boston ensemble that started performing in 1985, offered $1 each to the first 50 people who showed up for its April 29 concert at the Cambridge, Mass. YMCA Theater. (Folks showing up after that point had to pay the full price – a whopping $12).

Tampa Building to be Named After Fitzgerald

The site of the old Central Park Village Public Housing Project, demolished in 2007, will soon be home to 800 new residences, offices, stores, and a supermarket. The first building to be constructed will be called “The Ella,” named after jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald wrote her 1938 hit “A Tisket, A Tasket,” while living on Tampa’s Central Avenue. Back then, it was known as “Harlem South” among African-American musicians.

A MESSAGE FROM JEN PRESIDENT LOU FISCHER “I want them to come away with discovering the music inside them.” – Charlie Hayden About two weeks after the close of the fantastic 2nd Annual JEN Conference in New Orleans, I had the good fortune to attend OMEA in Cincinnati, OH. I heard many fine jazz groups and sat in on several informative clinic presentations. Of note were the TI:ME technology clinics and this year’s installment of the Intercollegiate Jazz Ensemble organized and presented by the Jazz Education Connection of Ohio. Directed by Scott Belck, guest artist Bobby Sanabria and this ensemble were smoking hot! I am proud to say I had two students participating in the group. The Reading Session led by Ben Huntoon, previewed an array of great new charts from a multitude of publishers. February 9-11 I attended the Kentucky Music Educators Association Conference. KMEA extended a gracious hand to JEN so I packed my bag and drove to Louisville. KMEA also played host to several excellent clinic presentations, and the All State Band, led by Jeff Helmer and Gordon Towell, was Outstanding! The Reading Band led by Jerry Tolson, was equally outstanding. Just two weeks later I packed up again, this time taking along 17 students from Capital U. for the 3-hour bus ride back to participate in the UofL Jazz Festival, February 25-27. Produced by Jerry Tolson, this event offered up a plate of hot jazz for everyone! The featured guest artists included Antonio Hart and the Jeff Hamilton Trio, Tamir Hendleman, piano and Christoph Luty, bass. What great energy!...and the UofL Big Band under the direction of John LaBarbera did an outstanding job with music presented to them by the guest There is an artists. apprenticeship Right after Spring Break I packed again, this time for three weeks in a row! Mar 11-14 I performed with many ensembles as part of the American Classic Jazz Festival system in jazz. in New Orleans, LA. Adjudicating alongside Mary Jo Papich, Doreen Ketchins, and You teach the Tony DaGradi, we heard many outstanding groups. Check out the listing in the NetworthyNews section…all culminating in an open-air concert on the steps across from young ones. Jackson Square in the French Quarter. The very next week (Mar 15-20) I drove from – Dave Van Ronk Columbus to Indianapolis where I participated as the JEN representative in coordination of the 5th Annual Music For All/JEN National Honors Jazz Band of America. Directed by Shelly Berg, this band featured19 of the most incredible young jazz musicians I have ever had the privilege to hear! If you get the chance, log onto the Music For All website and listen to this group of young jazz lions. Mar 23-25 I adjudicated 30+ ensembles at the 29th Annual Northwest College Jazz Festival in Cody Wyoming, produced by Neil Hansen. Neil is to be commended for his outstanding work, bringing in over 50 instrumental and vocal groups this year. Esteemed colleagues included Michel Weir, Sixth Wave with Greg Jasperse and Jennifer Barnes, the Randy Brecker Group, and saxophonist Shuichi Komiyama. April 3-28 I stayed at home to produce the 17th Annual Jazz & World Music Festival. In celebration of the 35th Anniversary of the creation of the Jazz Studies/Music Industry Programs founded by Ray Eubanks, we presented 35+ events, including the Invitational where 15 bands performed and received adjudication from our 7 guest artists including: Bobby Shew; Tom BONES Malone; Rick Condit; Luke Gillespie; Lalo Davila; Reggie Jackson and Turkish bassist/world music expert Kamil Erdem. What a hang it was! Why do I mention all of this? I’m here to verify that Jazz IS alive and well!!! America’s art form is thriving in the schools all across the nation and abroad. My message is just a small sampling of events all over the world! On behalf of all jazz lovers and educators, a heartfelt THANK YOU to anyone producing a festival or concert anywhere around the globe! Congratulations on spreading the word, keeping the flame alive, passing the torch! This is why we all do what we do, always delivering the message with passion and vibrancy, making certain the music endures and is here to be enjoyed by the masses for many years. Before heading off to the MFA/JEN Summer Symposium in Muncie, IN June 20-26, I plan to stay home for a while and catch up on details related to the upcoming 3rd Annual JEN Conference. In case you haven’t heard, we ARE planning another incredible hang in Louisville, KY January 4-7, 2012... where we will be Developing Tomorrow’s Jazz Audiences Today!

Kudos to ESPERANZA SPALDING for her recent Grammy win in the mainstream category of Best New Artist! The 26-year-old prodigy-turned-pro has received accolades from an array of critical media as well. The New York Times raves about bassist, vocalist and composer Spalding: “Esperanza has got a lot: accomplished jazz improvisation, funk, scat singing, Brazilian vernacular rhythm and vocals in English, Portuguese and Spanish;” Rolling Stone declares, “…her talent is undeniable;” and USA Today calls her stylistic blending of genres “a sophisticated fusion of classical music and jazz.” Spalding is currently on tour with performances scheduled in the U.S., Japan, South Africa and Europe. For more information, visit www.esperanzaspalding.com… Participants in the JEN endorsed Crescent City Jazz Festival, sponsored by AMERICAN CLASSIC TOURS (TX) held March 11-14 in New Orleans French Quarter included: Texas A&M University, Florida A&M University, Houston School for Performing and Visual Arts, Lagond Music School-NY, Drew School-CA, Uvalde High School-TX had a great time working with clinicians TONY LAGRADI (LA), DOREEN KETCHENS, MJ PAPICH (IL), LOU FISCHER (OH). An NEA Jazz Master and three-time Grammy Award winner, composer and pianist Ramsey Lewis has been referred to as “the great performer,” a title reflecting his performance style and music selections which display his early gospel playing and classical training along with his love of jazz and other musical forms. He brings Proclamation of Hope,, this large-scale multimedia composition for wind ensemble, rhythm section and voice commemorating Abraham Lincoln and commissioned by and premiered at the Ravinia Festival in 2009. Composed by Lewis and scored by SCOTT HALL (IL), the work celebrates one of the most famous Americans ever, Abraham Lincoln, on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of his birth. The Chicago Tribune calls it “a persuasive merger of jazz and classical idioms” and “some of the most eloquent music of Lewis’ career.” Watch for it in local PBS listings in your area.

“CAMP MMW IS A REALLY BEAUTIFUL AND INTIMATE SETTING WHERE WE CAN TURN PEOPLE ON TO WHAT WE THINK IS IMPORTANT ABOUT MUSIC.”

Medeski Martin & Wood A DISCUSSION ABOUT THE GROUP’S 20 YEARS AND THEIR WORK AT CAMP MMW…

W

hen John Medeski, Billy Martin and Chris Wood first got together in the early ‘90s, they had no idea that their trio would gain such commercial success. Fast forward twenty years and Medeski Martin & Wood, have now released over twenty albums, toured the world, and collaborated with everyone from classical cellist, Jane Scarpantoni, to jazz great, John Scofield and turntablist, DJ Logic. To celebrate their twentieth anniversary, MMW are releasing twenty new tracks and embarking on what could be the group’s last tour for a few years. To get a better handle on the band and their music, JAZZed sat down with the trio to talk about the past twenty years, their plans for the future, advice for budding musicians, and the unique opportunities available to young jazzers at Camp MMW.

20 JAZZed May 2011

JAZZed: How did Medeski Martin & Wood get its start? John Medeski: Twenty years ago we all met and started playing in New York. Chris and I had met in Boston and when we moved to NY we ended up playing at this club called the Village Gate. I met Billy through a good friend and mentor – Bob Moses – and when I first moved to the city, Billy and I got together to play a duet at his house. Then all three of us got together at Billy’s place. That first time was pretty magical and we’ve been doing it ever since. Billy Martin: What was apparent was the instant chemistry that we had together. It was really about the sound that we were coming up with right on the spot. I think all three of us were really ready for something like that. We were all playing as sidemen with other bands and were really looking for something different, something where we could have our own band with no leader. And it sort of evolved into this collective,


this trio Medeski Martin & Wood. I was very gung-ho about it and wanted to get us on the road and make a CD and was kind of pushing the guys to do that so we got in my van and we started heading outside of NY. A lot of our gigs were down south in college towns and coffee houses. We avoided jazz clubs because we wanted to reach a wider audience, especially the younger people. We weren’t making any money the first couple of years, but it wasn’t really about making any money – it was about building something. Chris Wood: We basically decided to start touring like a rock band. At the time we were making our money as sidemen for other people so it was really a strange sort of thing to do – jump in a van together and start touring clubs in the U.S. – but that’s what we did. Even though we weren’t really playing jazz in the traditional sense we started out as a jazz trio just because it was acoustic piano, acoustic bass and drums. As we toured the US, we were just touring in a van and I think that influenced our sound a lot – we couldn’t travel with a piano. Pianos in your average rock club in the U.S., if the venue even has one, are pretty dismal. So we had to find a different way for John to express himself and ultimately that was the B3 and the Clavinet and the Wurlitzer and those instruments that kind of allowed him to do what he wanted to do and obviously that changed the music.

have been asking for. We recorded a bunch of shows and we’ve all been away from it long enough that we can go back and revisited it and find some stuff that we like and are willing to release so we’re going to do that and we’re going to do a couple of tours as well... BM: Our tour schedule is a little lighter – we’re not touring as much we have in the past. We do have three major tours and then in the summer we’re going to play a lot of jazz festivals in Europe and Brazil and then there’s Camp MMW obviously so we’ll be getting into that in early August. JAZZed: Can you tell us a little about Camp MMW? CW: We’ve been doing this annual music camp up in the Catskills of New York for four years now. It happens in the first week of August and it can hold about 75 people at the most. It’s a really beautiful and intimate setting where we can turn people on to what we think is important about music. There’s a lot of real conceptual stuff, and some real basic stuff as well. We play them examples of how we compose, how we come up with music all our influences... JM: It’s a chance for us to give back and offer some of what we’ve learned and our experience. For each of us

JAZZed: How are you guys planning on celebrating your 20th anniversary? BM: Throughout the year we’re going to be doing some special offers – we’ll have a digital release of twenty singles, we’re going to be doing four Fridays at the Whitney museum in NY city, where we’ll have some different guests come play with us, I’m sure there’s going to be some things that are going to come up... CW: We want to think of it partly as a retrospective and then partly as a celebration. We’re doing a whole thing where we’re letting people request what they want to hear ahead of time and then we’re going to play one set of requests of the old material and then we’re going to do a whole improvised shack party set which for us is basically a party. Its a dance thing, but its made up and its stuff that we do on the spot. It’s creative and we’re making up each one for that night, but its definitely groove oriented. JM: I think we’re kind of honored that we’ve been together this long and we’re still growing and enjoying it. There’s a lot of stuff we’ve recorded before that’s never been released, and a lot of new stuff too – a lot of new live stuff. We’re planning on releasing a live Scofield record from our last tour we did a couple of years ago that people

it’s a little different but for me what I find important – having gone to music school – is all those things you forget. Some people go off and study music and they never have anything to say of their own cause they get so caught up in studying and imitating. My goal is to try to keep the students connected to who you are and what you have to say and where your mu-

sic really comes from. There’s no reason you need to lose your voice, you need to find your voice and then add to it – increase the size of your pallet. BM: It’s been a great way to connect and immerse everybody into our world – all of our influences, how we make music, how we practice, our philosophies, and our methods. We

have workshops and concerts where we’ll play for the students, and we’ll conclude the week by having a concert where each ensemble plays. We have a listening room – if we just we played our library straight, you couldn’t listen to everything in a week! So you can go in there and check out our library. We have films just about every night that are music related – it might be about Gil Evans, Monk or it might be a classic film like Black Orpheus – a Brazilian film from the 50’s that’s very musical – so there’s a lot going on. We keep them very, very busy and there’s not a dull moment. JAZZed: What’s next for MMW? JM: I think we are going to ease up a little in terms of our touring. We’re not retiring or anything, but I think we are going to do less as a band and more as individuals. There’s a lot of stuff that we’ve wanted to do and we’re going to pursue that more. We’ll still play together, but I don’t think we’ll tour as much. CW: Yeah, we’ve been touring a lot over the last twenty years so we’re maybe slowing down on that side of things. I’ve been real busy with the Wood Brothers. Me and my brother have been doing this thing for about five years – we have a new record coming out called Smoke Ring Halo and we’ve been touring quiet a bit supporting that. JM: I’m playing in a Tony Williams band with Jack Bruce, Vernon Reid and Cindy Blackman called Spectrum Road. It’s inspired by his Williams’ Lifetime and what he did as the foremost pioneer of jazz rock. He was really the first one to do it – it’s been amazing to revisit the music and realize how much ahead of his time he was. I’m doing a lot of solo piano projects as well, which are really fun and I’m going to start putting together some other things that I’ve been wanting to do. I’ve been talking

to some people maybe doing a drums, DJ and organ trio, I want to do a big band record – I have a lot of music that I’ve written – there’s so much stuff I haven’t even gotten out yet. BM: We’ll always be together. We’re not the kind of band that’s just going to quit. We’re going to be slowing down on the MMW bit. I just formed this new band called Wicked Knee. There’s a little clip of us playing on my Life on Drums instructional DVD. I wanted to have some brass on the DVD and from that I realized that this is my new band! I just finished mixing it last night so that’s going be my thing – it’s been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Then there’s my new DVD Life on Drums. I call it an anti-instructional video and it’s kind of my response to a lot of the instructional videos that are focused more on the technical aspects and less on the creative and compositional style. I do think it’s

important to find a technical explanation for things, but Life on Drums for me is my anti instructional, educational and somewhat documentary DVD about the art of drumming. It’s more about the creative side of it – all the aspects that I like to focus on and what I teach my students. It’s structured around topics like soloing, tonality, composition, rhythmic phrasing, tuning, and performance. I feel like a lot of this technical stuff will come through just by sitting there and watching someone play a solo. I used to go see Elvin Jones and Roy Haynes play live, and to me that was an incredible education just to see them play. It wasn’t like I needed to sit down and study with them – although I would love to have – but I feel like you get a lot of information just by watching them play in their element, soloing and being creative. That’s really something I wanted to capture and I think I was successful.

JAZZed: What advice do you have for young musicians? CW: Just persist. If you really want to do it and you love it – if you love music you just have to keep playing and playing and playing until you really are doing what you believe in. Try to be yourself while you’re doing it and if you don’t quit and you keep showing up, eventually, inevitably people are going to take notice of what you’re doing. BM: For drummers I would say, don’t think about being a drummer all the time. Think about being the musician as composer. The drums can be an incredibly powerful thing – you can get people up dancing or you can take people on a journey but you don’t always have to think like a drummer to do that. Next time you sit down at the set, don’t think, “What would a drummer do?” Try to think

more like a composer – that goes for all musicians really. Work on your soloing and on your improvising and think about developing your language. Think about your instrument as a means to express yourself with the language and the vocabulary that you have. Work on being in the moment of soloing and improvising and composing on the spot. Even if its just a one minute solo, work on developing a piece of music on your instrument right there on the spot and your vocabulary will grow very quickly – think about Sonny Rollins on the Williamsburg bridge or John Coltrane locked up in his room for weeks at a time developing his sound. That’s important. JM: Slow down the process in terms of your study. We’re constantly on random play and things are changing

all the time, but I think it’s really important to stop and slow down. Set aside time to really dive into things and absorb them. Work on slowing down and really hearing from deep inside. Take time to dive into one artist for a month or two at a time. Pick somebody you really love and just dive into their music. Find pieces that will give you the quintessential sort of essence of their sound and study it, learn it, absorb it. Take time to listen to it until you can hear it, sing it and feel it inside you – until you don’t need to listen to it or read it to sit down and play it. I also recommend playing free as part of your practice. First do your technique warm-up and then sit down and play free. You can sit down and play a sunset, you can play an emotion, you can play a scenario – it can be programmatic, it can be romantic, it can be whatever but do it everyday as part of your practice. Then you can go work on learning tunes, writing, studying harmony, lines, approach tones, – all that other stuff that you need to learn – but first get yourself in a warmed up state and connected to your instrument and then play free. That’s how you find your voice and stay connected to it. That way you know what all these sounds mean to you. You can’t be taking your cues from everybody else – we need to know what every chord and every note means to us and what every combination of those notes means to us. Then when we play them is coming from us.

Discussing

‘The Roots that Have Produced the Fruits’

A

n accomplished musical force with decades of experience as a sought-after accompanist, soloist, and bandleader, Dr. Larry Ridley is also one of the staunchest advocates for jazz education and the appreciation of the music’s roots in African-American culture. After studying at Indiana University and making a name for himself in his hometown through collaborations with the likes of Wes Montgomery and Freddie Hubbard, Ridley made the move to the NYC area where he continued to study, perform, record, and teach the music he loves. Notable musical pairings with such heavyweights as Sonny Rollins, Max Roach, Slide Hampton, and Red Garland (among many others) in the ‘60s led to a regular gig as Thelonious Monk’s bassist through the mid-1970s. Dr. Ridley then headed the music department and jazz program at Rutgers, before retiring in 1999, and currently teaches and lectures at Manhattan School of Music, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and elsewhere. While remaining active as a performer (and occasional recording artist) through to the present day, Ridley now also serves as executive director of the African American Jazz Caucus (AAJC) and contributes a regular column to JAZZed (see page 96). We recently spoke with Dr. Ridley to learn of his life as a student and teacher of the language and culture of jazz.

JAZZed: Dr. Ridley, you’ve been such an influential educator for so many – who were some educators who had significant influence on you as a musician? Dr. Larry Ridley: The early “educators” who continue to be significant influences on me as a musician and as a human being have to be defined in a holistic way. It begins with my father, mother, siblings, paternal/maternal

families, religious and extended families at large, my daughter, my great and great-great grandchildren, my nephews, my wife Magdalena, et al. I have had many great teachers. My third grade teacher at George Washington Carver P.S. 87 in Indianapolis taught and instilled a sense of pride in me as an African American/Cherokee Indian with a tad of European. Her name was Mrs. Pauline Morton-

Finney. She was a brilliant woman who served along with Ms. Mary McLeod Bethune, as an advisor to Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt during her husband’s Presidency. Mrs. Morton-Finney introduced us to W.E.B. DuBois, Carter G. Woodson, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Booker T. Washington, Phyllis Wheatley, Harriet Tubman, Chief Sitting Bull, Frederick Douglass, etc. My “big brothers,” David Baker and Jim Harrison, have always been, and continue to be, major role models and mentors – David since I was a teenager. JAZZed: What first drew you to jazz, specifically? LR: At an early age I was hearing jazz, blues, European classical music, and some country music on the radio and records played by members of my family and others. When I heard Jascha Heifitz playing the violin on the “Bell Telephone Hour” on the radio, I told my mother that I wanted to learn to play the violin. I began to study at five years old with Ms. Ruth McArthur, who had established a music conservatory for young African Americans in Indianapolis. Ms. McArthur met Fabian Sevitsky, the conductor of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. She made an arrangement with him to have the first violinist, Mildred Lind, teach others and me at her conservatory. Mother went with me to all of my violin lessons and took mental notes and made me practice daily. She watched and coached me while I sat on the stool practicing in front of her vanity dressing table mirror. When I finished, she let me go out to play with my childhood buddies, in the Lockefield Gardens Apartment complex where we lived. I love and thank my mother and father for instilling a sense of discipline in me. It sure has paid off in my many accomplishments. My uncle, Ben Holliman, played the saxophone and guitar professionally and was a friend and contemporary of Noble Sissle, Eubie Blake, Reginald DuValle, and Hoagy Carmichael, among many others. Uncle Ben had me playing “Boogie Woogie” on the violin with him playing guitar when I was about six years old. He was always

28 JAZZed May 2011


encouraging me. I loved and respected him greatly and loved hearing his stories about his experiences as a professional musician. When I was twelve or thirteen I went to the Murat Theatre in Indianapolis to hear the Norman Granz Jazz at the Philharmonic Concert. I always knew that I wanted to play jazz but not on the violin. When I heard Ray Brown playing bass with Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, and Ella Fitzgerald, that was it. A neighborhood friend worked at a pawnshop and arranged for me to get a plywood bass. So, switching from the violin, I taught myself the bass clef, the basic positions and began playing by ear and reading music. Freddie Hubbard’s brother Earmon Jr. played the piano and was the one who exposed us to Bud Powell, Charlie Parker, Thelonious, and Dizzy. He also introduced me to Oscar Pettiford and Charlie Mingus recordings. JAZZed: Did you ever have any more formal training on bass?

Larry Ridley and Sonny Rollins in Japan.

LR: Well, a couple of years after that I bumped into Monk Montgomery on the street and asked him if he would give me bass lessons. He gave me his address and told me to come by his house. When I got there he was re-

hearsing with his brothers Wes (guitar) and Buddy (piano) along with Alonzo “Pookie” Johnson on tenor sax, and Sonny Johnson on drums. They played a couple of numbers and Monk called me over to pick up the bass. Man, my

stomach was churning. I don’t remember the tune, but I must have done all right because Wes turned to me smiling and gave me a compliment. Monk then said that he was going to Seattle and California to set up some bookings for a new group he was forming called the “Mastersounds” and wanted me to sub for him at the Turf Club playing six nights a week with a matinee with the “Montgomery Johnson Quintet.” Man, my nerves were racing, but I hung in there with them. Some of the tempos on tunes like “Cherokee” were up there. I am forever indebted to them for taking me, a young teenager, under their wing teaching me on and off the bandstand and giving me confidence that I could become a jazz bass player. JAZZed: Let’s talk a little bit about the jazz scene in Indianapolis. LR: Indiana Avenue was the main (but not the only) street featuring jazz in the African American neighborhood clubs and theatres in Indianapolis, much like the black neighborhood main streets in many cities. There was the T(heater)O(wners)B(ookers) A(ssociation) and others that booked the various bands in what was affectionately called the “Chittlin’ Circuit.” Many big name artists and bands performed in Indianapolis: Duke El30 JAZZed May 2011

LR: In the 1950s, I created a band of young teenage “Turks” and called us the “Jazz Contemporaries” with Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, James Spaulding plaing alto, tenor and flute, Paul Parker on drums, Walt Miller on piano – later replaced by Al Plank – and, me on bass. Our repertoire included Max Roach/Clifford Brown and Art Blakey Jazz Messengers arrangements. My uncle’s Martin and Tom Ridley knew the owners of George’s Bar, who hired us for a couple of months to a six-nights-a-week with two matinees engagement. I also created all of the newspaper ads and flyers. We created a lot of attention throughout the Midwest and the club owners made money.

“Our Mission is dedicated to protecting, preserving and perpetuating the rich cultural heritage of jazz.” derley; George Shearing; Phineas Newborn; and so on. Indianapolis had numerous venues, such as, Sunset Terrace, Georges Bar, Henri’s, Cotton Club, Missile Room, the Topper, Clown’s Playhouse, Northwestern Tavern, the Madam Walker Theatre Center, British Lounge, Cactus Club, Mr. B’s, and Hub Bub. “Indy” has produced innumerable great local and nationally renowned musicians: Noble Sissle; Ben Holliman; Wes, Monk and Buddy Montgomery; Jimmy Coe; Leroy Vinnegar; Philip Stewart, J.J.

JAZZed: Can you discuss your time at Indiana University? What was the music program like at the time? Were there any professors who you really connected with? LR: I received a violin scholarship to the IU School of Music in 1955 long before there was a Jazz Degree Program. My big brother, David Baker, (the architect of the IU Jazz Degree Program much later), was already a student there. The African American gentleman who facilitated entry for both of us to IU was Dr. Roscoe Polin, president of the National Association of Negro Musicians. My degree pursuit was a B.M. degree in Music Education. I played violin in the IU Philharmonic Orchestra, the IU Opera Orchestra and viola in a String Quartet. In my sophomore year I switched to become a contrabass major studying with Murray Grodner. While there was no formal Jazz pro-


gram at the school, there were a number of guys there who played jazz: David Baker, Alan Kiger, Lanny Hartley, the Holly Brothers (Kermit and Bernie), Joe Hunt, George Bright, Welth Hutchinson, Jerry Tyree, Morris Hubbard, Dick Washburn and Al Cobine. Jamey Aebersold became a freshman student in my junior year there. We all played at jam sessions as well as many gigs in the area. I also played many gigs in David Baker’s Big Band. We played at the French Lick Jazz Festival and the Notre Dame Collegiate Jazz Festival, where we won the top college band honors. JAZZed: How did your studies at Lenox differ from IU? LR: The Lenox, Mass. School of Jazz was a summer program in the Berkshires at the Music Inn. David Baker and I met Gunther Schuller when he came to IU performing with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in 1959. He contacted John Lewis of the MJQ to give David, Al Kiger, and me scholarships to attend that summer. This was an extremely memorable experience in my life and career. I was able to hang out with, learn from, and bond with so many of my heroes, such as, Max Roach, Percy Heath, Kenny Dorham, Bill Evans, Marshall Sterns, Dr. Willis James, Milt Jackson, John Lewis, Connie Kay, and George Russell. It was also special meeting, rehearsing, and performing with Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry. One of my former students at Rutgers, Michael Fitzgerald, wrote a very nice piece giving the history and details of the Lenox School of Jazz experience. It is available online at: www. jazzdiscography.com/Lenox/lenhome. htm. JAZZed: When did you first realize that you had an interest in becoming a music educator, yourself? LR: I realized that I wanted to be a musician and music educator based on my earliest educational experiences in the 1950s observing the lack of African American, Hispanic, Native American and Asian Studies curricula inclusion

throughout the European American Educational System. I felt the need to dedicate my life and career as an African American jazz performer and African American jazz educator. My point is teaching, “Inclusion to recognize the Roots that have produced the Fruits.” The roots of the Jazz Tree begin in Mother Africa and the fruits are the various global jazz hybrids that have evolved from those roots. This in no way makes it exclusive or exclusionary. It points to teaching the roots that many beautiful fruits have evolved from. But remember that Maestro Duke Ellington stated, “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that Swing.” JAZZed: Well put! Let’s talk about your time at Rutgers. LR: My years at Livingston College of Rutgers University, beginning in 1971 to my retirement in 1999, were a wonderful period and segment of my life. The philosophy of the new College was based primarily with answering the Civil Rights Movement, the Student Demands for Ethnic Curricula Inclusion, and to quell the civil unrest and riots in many cities in the United States. The quality of activist intellectual colleagues was fantastic with individuals such as Maria Canino, Lloyd McNeil, Dan Newman, Daniel Goode, Nathan Heard, Nikki Giovanni, Toni Cade Bambara, Philip Corner, Frank Jennifer, Bernie Charles, Mel Gary, Sonia Sanchez, and so many others. Rutgers president Edward Bloustein and his wife and two members of the Board of Governors were ardent supporters of me and the Jazz Degree Program that I developed at Livingston. I became the chairman of the Livingston Music Department in 1972, designed a BA jazz performance degree curriculum, later an MA degree in Jazz Performance and brought in outstanding full time Jazz Professor faculty members. I received several yearly grants from the New Jersey State Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts to bring in guest performers, artists, and lecturers, which included the likes of Barry Harris, Hank Jones, Machito, Philly Joe Jones, Papa Jo Jones, Lucky Thompson, Roy

Haynes, Bob Cranshaw, Milt Hinton, Dexter Gordon, Johnny Griffin, Woody Shaw, and many others. I retired from Rutgers in 1999 and am now Professor of Music, Emeritus. I am still developing projects utilizing the fantastic archives of the Institute for Jazz Studies. The archives have grown and expanded so much, based on the original Marshall Stearns Collection, which was given to Rutgers. JAZZed: Can you talk about your current role at the Manhattan School of Music? LR: I began teaching bass part-time at MSM beginning in 1991 when Dick Lowenthal was the head of the Jazz Program. I am still there with the current program head, Justin DiCioccio. I am really enthusiastic about my new role as a lecturer in the Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Swing University Program headed up by my “little” brother Phil Schaap. I just recently finished an eight-week course entitled, “Thelonious Monk, the Man and his Music.” The response by the attendees was fantastic and I was able to share my personal friendship and musical association with Thelonious. Later this winter 2011, I will again do a course lecturing on Thelonious and one on my “homey,” Wes Montgomery. JAZZed: What are the goals and mission of African American Jazz Caucus (AAJC), and what’s your role in the organization? LR: I am the AAJC executive director. Our mantra is, “Working together works!” Our Mission is dedicated to protecting, preserving and perpetuating the rich cultural heritage of jazz, which is one of our indigenous musical art forms. We are a 501c3 not for profit organization. Jazz is an art form that has its origins, spiritual, heritage and cultural roots in Africa, African American communities and the African Diaspora. The AAJC is proactively working to maintain the aesthetic integrity, heritage, legacy and historical facts germane to the music emphasizing “The Roots that have produced the Fruits.” We are engaged in creating programs and providing services to further jazz education and jazz audiences.

the date that the slaves in Texas were the last to learn that the Emancipation Proclamation freeing them from slavery had been issued by President Abraham Lincoln in the year 1863. The further goal is to have the local communities to recognize and acknowledge their native born contributors to the African American Jazz Legacy. JAZZed: What’s the most rewarding thing about teaching, for you? LR: Being able to impart reliable credible information, expand research sources, techniques for growth and discussions to share and enlighten people. It is a “Two Way Learning Street” to create dialogue and not monologue. JAZZed: What’s the most frustrating?

You asked for the playability and sound of the early Otto Links. We listened. With structural changes both inside and out, “the sound” of yesteryear has been recaptured.

LR: Encountering individuals who are narrow minded and are not willing to research and cross reference information to enable their continuing and ongoing growth. Also, people who want instant “Stardom – ‘American Idol’-style” without putting in the time doing their homework and who become legends in their own minds. JAZZed: As a performer, what’s your proudest achievement? LR: To have God-given multi-talents and not abuse them. My website, www.LarryRidley.com, lists the many greats that I have had access to and continue to have to enable my further overall spiritual, technical growth and awareness in my lifetime. JAZZed: What advice do you have for your fellow educators? LR: Do not shortchange or limit yourself and your students’ knowledge in your teaching by not giving them a thorough grounding, research techniques, knowledge, awareness, and exposure to the importance of the African Roots and the lineage of the African American Jazz Legacy that has produced the Global Jazz Fruits.

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. This is why Stan Jay, President/Owner, put up a sign in the entranceway that reads, “Dream Fulfillment Center.” A top dealer for high-end archtops including fine jazz guitars by John Buscarino, Mark Campellone, Eastman, older John D’Angelico and James D’Aquisto, Epiphone (old and new), older Guild and The Loar, they also have a huge selection of flattop guitars by C F Martin, Taylor, Guild, Collings, Santa Cruz, Huss & Dalton, Lowden, Goodall, Bourgeois, McPherson, National and Dobro; banjos by Deering, Stelling Huber and Gibson, and mandolins by Breedlove, Collings, Gibson, Phoenix, Weber and many others. Mandolin Brothers is even better known for the vintage pieces they find (1833 to 1969). When you visit their museum-like showroom you are invited to play all of these fine instruments. Famous for their thorough and amusing descriptions on their Web site and in their bi-monthly “Vintage News” newsletters - they describe these pieces in stories that can only be called extraordinary and informative.

Once in a life time, a new and revolutionary product exceeds the designer’s expectations! PHAETON has earned this honor. This new dynamic trumpet exudes both neo-classic art design coupled with state of-the-art metallurgy and up-todate acoustic technology. This exceptional professional trumpet was designed to satisfy every performance need of a working artist: intonation, resonance, balance, projection and enhanced valve action are examples of the visionary thinking of the engineers who collaborated to make this custom trumpet a reality. PHAETON… is certainly beyond everyone’s expectations. Combined passion and vision were essential, as this rich sounding instrument began its journey from conception to completion. Consider its centered focused power, enhanced projection, innovative valve cluster construction and heavy weight top/bottom cap design as truly new benchmarks which have “raised the bar” for those competitors still searching for their PHAETON.

The Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Program (EE) is a free program that aims to elevate musicianship, broaden perspectives and inspire performance. Each year, students across the globe are introduced to the music of such seminal big band composers as Duke Ellington, Benny Carter, Mary Lou Williams and Count Basie. Students and bands at any level will experience the thrill of playing some of the most joyful American music ever written. Members receive a resource package with six new big band transcriptions, a reference CD/DVD, teaching resources, quarterly newsletters, and are eligible to participate in non-competitive regional festivals. All EE bands are also invited and encouraged to submit a recording for the annual Competition & Festival each May. Fifteen finalist bands and one winning community ensemble from across North America travel to New York City to spend three days immersed in workshops, jam sessions, open rehearsals and performances at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s home, Frederick P. Rose Hall. The three top placing bands perform with Wynton Marsalis as a guest soloist. EE is open to high school bands in the U.S., Canada and American schools abroad.

Former chief arranger for the Woody Herman Orchestra, and now the leader of the critically acclaimed John Fedchock New York Big Band, Fedchock’s dynamic charts span the spectrum of skill levels, allowing every ensemble to feel comfortable while enjoying the unique experience of working directly with an accomplished composer. Concert appearances showcase each ensemble’s specific strengths, as well as Fedchock’s extraordinary playing described by the New York Times as “dazzling trombone virtuosity”. John Fedchock is an Antoine Courtois performing artist.

Dr. Larry Ridley, AAJC Executive Director & Bassist Extraordinaire: Focus on Reverend Dr. Ronald Myers, www.juneteenthjazz.com Minister, physician and jazz musician, Rev. Ronald V. Myers, Sr., M.D., is the leader of the “Modern Juneteenth Movement” in America. Myers is working to make Juneteenth a national holiday observance, like Flag Day and Patriot Day. Now, thirty-six States, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Congress recognize Juneteenth as a state holiday or state holiday observance. “Juneteenth” refers to the date, the “19th of June,” 1865, when Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas to read General Order #3, announcing freedom for all slaves, more than two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. Myers believes the observance of Juneteenth provides a profound opportunity for all Americans to come together as a nation and constructively confront its’ troubling slave history and embrace reconciliation and healing from the legacy of enslavement. Juneteenth also provides African Americans with an opportunity to define what it truly means to be an American of African descent and revitalize their artistic connections with mother Africa. Through a partnership with the African American Jazz Caucus (AAJC) (www.aajc.us) and

Many African American owned and operated jazz venues at once popular nightclubs and restaurants, were either closing or no longer featuring jazz. Jazz was becoming a declining art form being featured and supported in many black communities in the United States. The organization, through the appointment of Myers as Chaplain, began reaching out to the most important cultural and spiritual institution in the black community, the black church, to support jazz. Myers, also the Founder & Director of the Fellowship of Creative Christian Jazz Musicians (FCCJM) (www.ChristianJazz.net), developed a Midnight Jazz Worship Service, working with local pastors and choirs, and leading panel discussions on jazz worship

“The observance of Juneteenth provides a profound opportunity for all Americans to come together as a nation.”

the National Association of Juneteenth Jazz Presenters (NAJJP), Myers leads a modern day jazz renaissance movement to preserve the legacy of African American Classical Music, commonly called “jazz,” in the historic communities where it was created. In 1990, Myers became the Chaplain of the Black Jazz Music Caucus (BJMC) of the International Association of Jazz Educators (IAJE). The BJMC was renamed the AAJC in 2001. Dr. Myers was given the charge to bridge the gap between the black church and jazz. The organization was and continues to be concerned about the declining presence of jazz in the black community.

at the IAJE conferences held across the country. Dr. Myers and Dr. Ridley have long recognized the need to develop a network of cultural institutions that would preserve the African American Jazz Legacy and provide young people with the opportunity to embrace and perform with seasoned jazz musicians from their own historic communities. Myers established “June is Black Music Month!” - CELEBRATING JUNETEENTH JAZZ - “Preserving Our African American Jazz Legacy!” and a series of Juneteenth Jazz Legacy concerts and Juneteenth Art Exhibits across the United States. These Juneteenth Jazz events are supported by the National Juneteenth Observance Foundation (NJOF), State and local Juneteenth organizations around the na-


jazzforum tion that Myers continues to organize for over a decade. Annual Juneteenth Jazz concerts celebrate the historic legacy of accomplished native jazz artists to promote pride and encourage community leaders to embrace jazz preservation projects. Area youth are exposed to the legacy of neighborhood jazz icons and embrace with enthusiasm the performance of live jazz, many for the first time. Local Juneteenth organizations affiliated with the NAJJP are encouraged to support the celebration of Juneteenth Jazz and encourage local jazz artists to perform and conduct jazz workshops with area youth and preserve the African American Jazz Legacy. Working with Dr. Larry Ridley, Executive Director of the AAJC, Myers promotes the celebration of the historic legacy of HBCU jazz education in America. Many leading colleges and universities do not recognize or acknowledge the historic role of HBCUs in the founding of jazz education. Many of these institutions have eliminated African American jazz educators from teaching positions. These recent developments have focused Myers and Ridley on the need for the development of alternative community based Juneteenth Jazz education programs and strive to create curriculum for elementary and secondary schools. Supporting HBCU jazz education remains an essential part of preserving the African American Jazz Legacy in America. Dr. Ridley began working as an advisor with Congressman John Conyers (D-MI) in 1978 to the present. He aided in the crafting of HR 57, which passed unanimously both houses of Congress in 1987 declaring Jazz as “America’s National Treasure through the African American Experience”. Ridley always stresses, “The Roots that have led to the Fruits”. He was instrumental in contacting State Representative William Crawford (Indianapolis, IN) who sponsored Indiana’s Juneteenth state holiday legislation, which passed unanimously in 2010 to support Juneteenth Jazz. www.jazzindiana.net Dr. Myers also continues to work with members of the U.S. Congress through the leadership of Congress-

man Danny Davis (D-IL), Chairman of the National Juneteenth Congressional Committee and many state legislators. Myers urges state legislators to enact legislation to establish Juneteenth as a state holiday or state holiday observance and to establish State Juneteenth Commissions. These commissions should

work with school boards to develop curricula to teach the history of Juneteenth in public schools. The partnership of the AAJC and the NAJJP will continue to work for the preservation of our African American Jazz Legacy through Juneteenth Jazz.

CDShowcase THE TONY WHITE PROJECT As a Jazz radio announcer, DJ and aficionado I have the distinct pleasure of being associated with some of the finest musical minds to have ever played, composed, arranged and produced this music.

DENIS GRAY’S

Lucky Jazz fiction at its finest

In 2006, Tony White – a fine saxophone player and musical educator of young minds, was introduced to Billy Mitchell. Billy just happens to be one the premier musical educators, arrangers, producers and stellar pianists in Southern California or anywhere else. It was truly serendipitous. Tony had been talking about stepping outside of just teaching music and doing more playing of his instrument. Thus as providence would have it, the two men just happened to be in the same general area at the same time when a chance introduction brought them together. Little did they know that The Tony White Project would be the result of that introduction. Tony’s saxophone work is simply sublime. This is a magnificent collection that I would recommend to every Jazz fan to have in their collection. I fell I love with it when Tony and Billy sent me the first preliminary copy of t he session.

Jazz, mystery, romance Red hot jazz on the Mississippi “Lucid, lyrical, lovely, lasting, Denis Gray’s Lucky vibrantly realizes life on the Mississippi riverboat in the ‘20s. The jazzy, bustling, staccato rhythms in Gray’s prose mirror New Orleans with its mixed cultures as a breathing, pulsing, jazz organism. Gray captures the great significance of jazz and art.” – Gayl Teller, Nassau Poet Laureate.

Melvin Sparks 1946-2011

Melvin Sparks, legendary acid jazz guitarist, died of heart failure at his home in Mt. Vernon, New York on March 15. He was 64. Sparks first sat in with B.B. King, in 1959 at the age of 13, and by 1963 he joined The Upsetters, an R&B outfit that backed the likes of Sam Cooke and Little Richard, among others. Melvin first truly rose to prominence in the late ’60s and ’70s as a souljazz guitarist, playing with Lou Donaldson on the classics “Hot Dog,” “Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky,” “Donkey Walk” and “The Caterpillar.” Sparks’ first album as a leader, Sparks!, dropped in 1970 with a number of others on the Prestige and Westbound labels throughout the decade. Melvin later played a significant role in the acid jazz movement of the ’90s and his “comeback” album, 1997’s I’m a Gittar Player (Cannonball) is considered by many to be a high-water mark of his career. Other releases followed, including Sparks’ most recent album, 2006’s Groove on Up for Savant Records. Melvin Sparks passed away just a week shy of his 65th birthday.
