Music Memory

A

few years ago, there was a huge publicity campaign sic, and music elicits a powerful response in people, when it was (mis)reported that students listening to even those suffering debilitating mental conditions Mozart prior to taking standardized tests would show such as Alzheimer’s disease. A recent documentary, a marked improvement in their exam scores. The idea Alive Inside, suggests, “Even though Alzheimer’s that passively listening to music would actually make and various forms of dementia will ravage many a person “smarter,” while a nice thought, has been parts of the brain, long-term memory of music from largely refuted.

T

Five-time Grammy Award-winning Blanchard will join the DSO as the Fred A. & Barbara M. Erb Jazz Creative Chair beginning with the 2012-13 season of the Paradise Jazz Series, sponsored by MGM Grand Detroit. In this role, Blanchard will assist in curating the acts for the Paradise Jazz series and contribute to community education initiatives. As Jazz Chair, he plans to add an unprecedented facet to the position: for the first time in Paradise Jazz Series history, Blanchard will make special guest appearances throughout the season, serving as host and at times even performing with the featured acts. www.dso.org

noteworthy Anthony Braxton Relaunches Tri-Centric Foundation Site Highly influential composer and saxophonist Anthony Braxton’s Tri-Centric Foundation recently launched the new and improved version of the organization’s website. Active since March 2011, tricentricfoundation.org has been recognized as one of the most comprehensive websites for any living American composer. New Braxton House Records, the online record label of the Tri-Centric Foundation, has released dozens of new album-length downloads and the four-CD box set 3 (the first studio recording of one of Braxton’s operas). Braxton emerged in the 1960s and has since released over 100 albums of material along with establishing an influential teaching career as a professor of music at Connecticut’s Wesleyan University. Much of his work has attempted to break down barriers between jazz and other forms of music. Braxton has composed operas and works for large orchestras, for example. In celebration of the new site, TCF is offering its second batch of free historic bootlegs – 13 rare concert recordings between 1975 and 1989 ranging from solo to orchestra. This month’s New Braxton House release is the first volume documenting Braxton’s 2007 four-night run at New York’s Iridium. www.tricentricfoundation.org

IU’s Jacobs School Gets $1.9 Million for Jazz Studies A $1.9 million gift was recently made to the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music Jazz Studies Department by the estate of Anne and Paul Plummer. A tenor saxophonist, Paul Plummer was a close friend of Distinguished Professor David N. Baker. “I’m completely stunned to hear of something so magnanimous, a gesture that is so selfless,” Baker said. “It would mean so much to Paul to see how this all of a sudden enhances the school and makes it possible for us to offer a world-class jazz education to so many worthy students.” Plummer was a member of a band Baker formed in 1958 and 1959 that consisted of college peers and musicians from Richmond, Ind. The two went on to perform and record together as members of various ground-breaking groups led by jazz innovator George Russell. Plummer also spent time in the United States Air Force and was stationed in Thailand for many years. Plummer, who died at the age of 73 earlier this year, was married to Anna Sarvis, who passed away in 2003. www.music.indiana.edu

2012 marks 50 years of Jamaica’s independence and also marks over a half-century of legendary Jamaican music. To commemorate the famous artists and genres that hail from the island, there are a number of events and festivals throughout2012. The evolution of Jamaican music has seen the rise of reggae with legends such as Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Jimmy Cliff, and Burning Spear, the introduction of ska including the sounds of the Skatalites and Derrick Morgan, the emergence of Rock Steady, and now the pulsating beats from today’s Dance Hall through award-winning artists such as Shaggy and Sean Paul. “As we celebrate 50 years of Jamaica’s independence, we also honor aspects of our distinct culture such as our music,” said Jamaica’s Director of Tourism John Lynch. “Our music has transformed communities here in Jamaica and overseas with harmony driven songs from a variety of musicians past and present. Visitors to the country shouldn’t depart without taking in the sounds and rhythms of Jamaican music. It’s played around the world, but there’s nothing like hearing it here in Jamaica.” Notable events that have recently been announced include the islandwide Ocho Rios Jazz Festival, (June 9-16), featuring international performers from Europe, the United States and the Caribbean along with renowned Jamaican jazz artists, and the Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay (July 15-21), showcasing the best talents in roots, rock and reggae music. www.visitjamaica.com

What’s on Your Playlist? A rising star in the jazz world, visionary pianist and composer Romain Collin is fast making his mark on the New York scene, with international acclaim not far behind. Collin came to the U.S. from Antibes, France on a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music, where he studied with the likes of Dave Liebman and Joe Lovano. In 2007, Romain graduated from the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz where he held a full scholarship as the pianist of an ensemble handpicked by Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and Terence Blanchard. During this time Collin also had the opportunity to tour with Hancock and Shorter in Vietnam and India. Romain Collin’s new album, The Calling (Palmetto), is a tour de force that showcases his strengths as an accomplished composer and virtuoso pianist of the highest order. 1. Piano Concerto No. 23 in A, K. 488 – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, performed by Maurizio Pollini and the Wiener Philharmoniker This concerto is some of the most beautiful, elegant, and effortlessly balanced music ever written. The second movement in particular shows a more reflective and darker side of Mozart, it is quite simply sublime. As for Pollini, his piano touch and sound on this recording is some of the greatest I have ever heard. His rendition of the concerto really captures the essence of the music, combining lightness with incredible focus and real depth in tone and phrasing...which is so difficult when performing Mozart. 2. The V.S.O.P. Quintet Live – VSOP Hubbard/Shorter/Hancock/Carter/Williams... Wayne and Freddie backed up by what probably is the greatest rhythm section. The energy on this record is incredible. I can listen to any track in a loop and listen to Herbie, Ron and Tony shape-shifting at the speed of light. The dynamic and communication between everyone in the band is so inspiring. Ensemble playing at its highest.

3. Paris/London: Testament – Keith Jarrett Keith’s solo piano playing is unique and unparalleled in its flow, level of focus, and momentum. Keith’s unconditional commitment to exploring the piano and all of its possibilities is a great source of inspiration. Throughout his solo career, one hears constant development in his touch, technique, and harmonic concepts while always feeling this raw force, an intense and singular focus and unconditional commitment to the creative process of true improvisation. In Paris–London, I hear a real stretch in tonality without ever becoming atonal, which I find very interesting, especially from a musician who has truly mastered tonal music. Jarrett keeps challenging himself and sets the bar always higher. 4. Herbie Hancock Trio with Ron Carter and Tony Williams This is a record that I keep coming back to and that is rarely mentioned. The trio exudes so much raw, rhythmic energy. Herbie is on fire; his flow of ideas seems endless and relentlessly drives the band. Incredible group improvisation and interaction by one of the greatest trios and rhythm sections in the history of jazz music.

Romain Collin’s album, The Calling (Palmetto Records), was released on April 24, 2012. www.romaincollin.com

5. Complete Capitol Recordings of Art Tatum Oh well... The music speaks for itself! Words would most definitely fall short of describing the wonder that is Art Tatum’s playing.

8. Ella and Louis – Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong A true classic, music making at its purest by the greatest line up! Oscar’s comping is off the hook!

6. Piano Concerto No 3 – Sergei Rachmaninov, performed by Martha Argerich and Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra Rachmaninov is one of my favorite composers and a great influence. I feel that the third concerto is his best. The orchestration, the counterpoints, the stretch in harmony and the piano writing all make for a masterpiece so incredibly rich, dense and gorgeous. I could spend the rest of my life studying this concerto! Martha Argerich is one of the great piano virtuosi and plays this piece with so much energy, passion and authority.

9. Blue – Joni Mitchell Joni is the quintessential singer-songwriter. I love this record for its bare, stripped down orchestration; it really puts Joni’s voice at the forefront of the music. The songs are super charged emotionally, rich and complex harmonically and all the melodies are so uniquely Joni!

7. Gone, Just Like a Train – Bill Frisell Bill Frisell’s playing is so grounded and economical. It keeps reminding me that playing what we honestly hear is the very root of true improvisation. I am always amazed and inspired by how Bill has created a truly unique sound based on a singular mix of Blues, Jazz and Country music.

10. Amnesiac – Radiohead Radiohead is one of my greatest musical influences. I think they are true pioneers in the way they blur the lines between electronic composition and heavy songwriting. I feel that Radiohead’s music truly encompasses all the great pillars of music, from memorable and haunting melodies to heavy rhythm, from lush harmony to complex form and rich orchestration. Nigel Goldrich is a true magician, his vision as a producer is so singular and was a real game changer in the world of pop-rock music. It is so interesting to see such organic chemistry between the band and the producer... The musical possibilities seem limitless.

Our network is growing JAZZ EDUCATION NETWORK

A MESSAGE FROM JEN PRESIDENT LOU FISCHER As I write my last message as JEN President, I feel compelled to reflect on the collective vision that Mary Jo and I shared at the time of JEN’s conception. I assure you, that vision remains intact and is embodied in the mission statement so carefully and painstakingly penned by the steering committee in 2008: The Jazz Education Network is dedicated to building the jazz arts community by advancing education, promoting performance, and developing new audiences In 2008, I sent Mary Jo an email containing a personal heartfelt ‘vision’ of what I thought JEN should be. I am thrilled to say that JEN has fulfilled and surpassed my original mental picture, as noted below. JEN is a chameleon without prejudice with a face of all color; speaking all languages, communicating through a common usage of jazz within the family; is humble and serves the needs of friends and neighbors; has the respect of peers as an authority in the field; has the support of many; is rich with passion; is all enduring. I have been humbled and overwhelmed as I looked out among the faces at each of our annual conferences. Attendees have come to celebrate these annual events from so many parts of the world...like a chameleon with a face of all color...Canada, Japan, Mexico, Sweden, Brazil, South Africa, France, Germany, Belgium, Austria, United Kingdom, Turkey, Italy, Israel, Australia, Denmark, Netherlands, New Zealand, Chile, China, and the United States, speaking different languages, but ‘truly’ communicating through the common usage of jazz. JEN, as an organization remains humble and through the various initiatives now established serves the needs of friends and neighbors…Outreach (touching over 7,000 students thus far in the conference communities), JENerosity Project (providing instruments and music for schools in need), Mentorship Program (providing guidance and nurturing for younger musicians), Composition Showcase, K-8 website, LeJENds of Jazz Education Award; John LaPorta Award and the President’s Service Award, multiple scholarship awards, outstanding clinics and concerts, and the newest initiative to ‘Swing Hard’ in ’13, the JENerations Jazz Festival! JEN has the support of many…Symphony Publishing, Music For All, Buffet Group USA, Alfred Music Publishing, Ella Fitzgerald Foundation, Berklee College of Music, Hal Leonard, Jupiter/Mapex/XO, and a multitude of industry and institution exhibiting partners too numerous to mention here, network affiliate groups, the collective membership at all levels, ‘all’ of which we could not be successful without! JEN has garnered the respect of peers as an authority in the field, having been invited to sit and work collectively in partnership among long established organizations formulating a path to Advance Jazz Education around the world, including the Quincy Jones Musiq Consortium, Jazz Arts Group of Columbus/Jazz Arts Initiative, and TI:ME (Technology Institute for Music Educators). I read recently that “Passion Loves Company”, and the collective passion demonstrated for America’s true indigenous art form is shared by all as we provide a support system for Promoting Performance and Building New Audiences. I want to share with you another quote I used during the JENeral session back in 2010, penned by someone much wiser than I... “Where you begin is simply a footnote. Where you finish is History.” I stand proudly when I say JEN is no longer in the footnote stage of our existence, and TOGETHER we have collectively built JEN to be a major performer in jazz history. I remind you of a statement President-Elect Andrew Surmani made to the Board a few years back, in reference to our First Annual Conference: “What started as a dream when we met in Chicago in June 2008 to form this new organization somehow became a reality with this conference, thanks to the thousands of hours of work by all of you.” TOGETHER, we all share the same vision for JEN. As Andrew assumes the office and becomes the Third President of JEN on July 1st, I ask that you pledge your full support to him as our leader, and to the mission of the organization. I truly hope to see all of you in Atlanta, January 2-5, 2013, at the Fourth Annual Conference, for what WE guarantee will be another memorable Hang! You’ll still see me running around as your Volunteer Conference Coordinator and hopefully playing a bit of bass on occasion. Why not volunteer to assist?

“I Hear


Freedom

in That Sound” Kate McGarry & the Diplomacy of Jazz Grammy nominee takes to China as a jazz ambassador. By Kevin M. Mitchell

Can jazz succeed where diplomacy fails? Kate McGarry believes so. After all, she’s seen it with her own eyes and felt it with her own heart. “It’s the third time I’ve been on the Rhythm Road tour,” says the jazz vocalist of a special collaboration between Jazz at Lincoln Center and the U.S. State Department. In 2009, McGarry went to Eastern Europe, and the nations of Romania and Albania, and in 2010 she went as part of another group to Brazil and Chile. “The State Department sees it not only as a cultural exchange, but as a diplomatic tool. They often send American jazz groups to places where negotiations have so far failed.”


When we spoke with her, Kate McGarry, was still winded from a trip to Asia, and busy taking care of the final details of her new album, Girl Talk, released in April on Palmetto Records. Her last, If Less Is More … Nothing Is Everything received a 2008 Grammy nomination. Effortlessly mixing traditional jazz with completely original takes on songs from Bob Dylan and the Cars, working with husband, jazz guitarist Keith Ganz, she continues to build a career without gimmicks, just a love and devotion to the jazz tradition. And she shares that tradition in workshops and clinics here in the states and in corners of the world with little or no exposure to the music. Most recently she was part of a quartet that included Ganz and keyboardist Gary Versace and drummer Jordon Perlson. McGarry herself grew up in Hyannis, Mass. with nine siblings in a musical household. At the age of seven she stumbled on a discarded piano sitting by a curb and got some of her brothers to wheel it into the house. She started taking lessons, influenced at first by the folk and Celtic music she heard in the home. But at an early age she discovered Keith Jarret and Bill Evans and her path was charted. She went to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and earned a degree in African-American music and jazz. She lived and performed in L.A.

before moving to New York in the late 1990s. Her 2007 album The Target was named one of the best albums of that year by DownBeat. She’s performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Birdland, and festivals including the Berlin Jazz Fest, San Sebastian Jazz Fest, and Jazz Baltica. The singer has recorded and toured with jazz greats, including Hank Jones, Fred Hersch, Kurt Elling, and Maria Schneider, and has been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered, Piano Jazz with Marion McPartland and JazzSet with Dee Dee Bridgewater. But it was her experience in China that gave her an opportunity to be part of special cross-cultural exchange. There were public concerts, master classes, lecture-demonstrations, workshops, jam sessions and collaborations with local musicians. A bit shy when on any topic other than jazz, easy to laugh, the singer made some time for us recently to talk about her trip, teaching, and the state of jazz vocals today.

“A Powerful Tool” JAZZed: Tell us about your recent trip to Asia. KM: The project is called “Rhythm Road” and it’s collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center and the U.S. State Department Bureau of Cultural Affairs. This has been around since 2005, but

has roots in the Jazz Ambassadors program, which goes back decades. Dizzy [Gillespie] and [Dave] Brubeck were part of it in the 1950s and 1960s. It’s about sharing jazz with other cultures, bringing American music to places that might not be getting it. JAZZed: How does it work? KM: They take 10 bands a year around the world, and not places like

week. In China, we went from the southern part to the very top where it was freezing cold! [laughs] They make ice cities up there! JAZZed: Where did you perform? KM: Typically in 1,000 to 1,200 seat auditoriums, mostly at universities. They were completely packed. It was a lot of young people, and they were really interested in American jazz. They were so receptive … after every concert there were Q&A sessions and they would say, “I hear the freedom in that sound – I love that – I want that…” JAZZed: What were the Chinese Government’s restrictions on you?

Paris. It’s Afghanistan, Iran – the State Department sees it not only as a cultural exchange, but as a diplomatic tool. They often send American jazz groups to places where negotiations have so far failed. JAZZed: Does it work? KM: I’ll tell you it’s a really powerful tool. This past trip we were in China for three weeks and Mongolia for one

KM: I did think, “Oh it’s going to be hard to performing in a communist state,” but it was fine and we were able to do everything we wanted to do. They did ask for a set list before we went, and I gave them a big one, like 40 songs! [laughs] That way we could have a lot of flexibility. And they let me include a lot, including Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are A Changin’.” JAZZed: Favorite moment? KM: Oh gosh … we would do a new special arrangement that appears on the new album, “We Kiss in the Shadows” from Rogers & Hammerstein’s The King and I. It was inspired by the heartache I felt when that gay teen [18-year-old Tyler Clementi] jumped off the George Washington Bridge after being bullied, committing suicide. It was so sad and I felt it was such a terrible loss. Without changing the lyrics, Keith [Ganz] and I re-worked the song to be in support of marriage equality and LGBT rights. They let us do it and it was remarkable. China has a fledging, newly formed LBGT community and they would clap loudly at the song, and we would talk about it after. JAZZed: No repercussions? KM: No! In fact, we were told by our embassy host that they were sitting next to the President of the University,

an older man, and when the clapping was so loud and so supportive, he said, “I really have to get with the times [on this issue] – this is a new era.” So we felt it was really relevant, and important to be sharing it, supporting freedom and acceptance. It was good to be supporting these new communities who are just starting to have the courage to show themselves in China. JAZZed: And what were the clinics there like? KM: We did a lot to help them understand more about the foundations of jazz, and getting them up playing. They were excited to do that to do that. JAZZed: How much experience with jazz did they have? KM: Very little. What we heard from them was more fusion jazz, like they were back in the 1970s. JAZZed: Where did you begin? KM: Usually the best thing in this situation is to begin with the blues, because you can get people making music if they can follow those three chords. We’d get the structure going and then deal with some of the focus on the swing feel, how the three over four rhythm works, how the triplet figures swing. That’s a long road, and you need a lot of time to plant seeds. One nice thing about all of this is the state department gives you an allowance for educational materials, so we brought things and left them so they could keep working on it. You hope it’s your first visit and you can keep going back. JAZZed: What material did you leave? KM: One of my favorites is Dave Berkman’s The Jazz Singer [published by Sher]. It’s a great book with wonderful step-by-step exercises to help a singer be more fluent. Another one is Rhiannon’s CD Flight, a beautiful recording of exercises. She has a beautiful system of singing together in groups, and gets students to listen and open up with the rhythms of music, not necessarily strictly jazz. JAZZed May 2012 23


JAZZed: So after three weeks in China, you went to Mongolia – what was that like? KM: [laughs] Cold! Otherwise, it was different because they aren’t communist any more, and have had a little more exposure to jazz. They had more experience with the U.S. culture and hold jazz festivals … But Rhythm Road is such a great program. It’s doing important work, and we hope to do it again.

“Passion with Action” JAZZed: Let’s talk about your education. KM: My high school and college music teachers were the biggest influences on me. They gave me real confidence and the feeling that I could act on the strong intuition I had about music. I was very shy… JAZZed: Did you study jazz in high school? KM: Yes. There was Rich Berberian at Barnstable High – he was the

“The State Department sees it not only as a cultural exchange, but as a diplomatic tool. They send American jazz groups to places where negotiations have so far failed.” new choir teacher and he came in and turned the whole school on its ears. He was so enthusiastic! He made all new groups including a madrigal group and a jazz choir. Suddenly I had a real place to be, and real support. But here’s the

thing: He was passionate, but he could back up his passion with action, and provide opportunity for kids like me. I’m also grateful to him. JAZZed: What was college like? KM: I went to University of Massachusetts Amherst, and was in the program founded by Dr. Billy Taylor, Max rRach, and Dr. Fred Tillis. I studied with Dr. Horace Boyer, who was a scholar of gospel but also really understood the jazz vocal tradition. He was definitely the biggest influence on me musically. JAZZed: What was studying with him like? KM: His way of teaching was to listen with you, help you analyze how different jazz singers were using their voice. He wasn’t so interested in modes or scales, but listening to our great literature. In particular, it was the live material – Ella at Newport, Sarah at Mr. Kelly’s … all those incredible albums. We’d just sit in a studio and listen to different passages. Then we’d discuss the phrasing, holding out notes and what effect they were having, what notes the artist was choosing. It was an organic way to look at our history of music and I learned more from that than a book with scales or exercises. JAZZed: Do you think there’s too much of the latter and not enough of the former today? KM: Today jazz education has become big business. Sometimes I think about that original intent of the mu-

sic, and see that the connection to the foundation of the music can get lost. JAZZed: How much interaction with students do you get? KM: I get to do master classes at the Manhattan School of Music, and I do clinics whenever and wherever I am when performing on the road.

strong rhythm that helped them keep up their momentum. I’ve been known to bring a 10-pound sledgehammer to these workshops – though I have the students hit pillows so nobody breaks anything! JAZZed: Not breaking anything would be helpful in you getting asked back, I imagine. What’s the advantage of that heavy prop?

KM: By recreating that act, they come to understand in very real terms that heavy “huh” sound made when the hammer comes down. They understand that heaviness of the downbeat, and understand the weight that these singing prisoners were carrying, the strength needed to get the job done. It just all emphasizes the foundation of jazz.

JAZZed: What are the students like? KM: They are great, but some haven’t really listened to the literature. They are listening to whatever the newest thing is now – just like I was when I was their age. I was listening to the singer/songwriters of the 1970s and that had a big influence on me. In fact I typically reinterpret one or two of those songs on every album I do. And that’s all good. But it’s about being well versed and educated about jazz. Not just in that “Oh, this song came from that album” way but more about the content on the record.

Makes it Easy

“Make It Your Own” JAZZed: Walk us through what your master classes are like. KM: It’s all different things! [laughs] I had one where I was teaching a unit on congregational singing, because that is the root of jazz vocal in general. The spirituals written back during slavery are still relevant, as is singing with other people. I cover free singing, the sound of congregational singing compared to classical, chest voice singing, full throated singing, a free rhythmic approach, lots of improv, lots of call and response… I like to be able to do this because it’s a lot of the foundation, and it develops that traditional and also the rhythmic sensibility. It allows me to get all that across.

Make playing easy and focused with Portnoy. Created specifically for the intermediate to professional clarinetist, Portnoy mouthpieces are designed to be free blowing while producing a focused, unsurpassed tone. Make it easy. Make it focused. Make it Portnoy.

JAZZed: What do you use for that? KM: We listen to prison songs, the guys working chain gains that [music historian] Alan Lomax recorded. What is in their voice that helps them do this repetitive task 14 hours a day? It’s the

JAZZed: Sounds like the importance of listening – which you learned as a student – carries through to your master classes today. KM: Yes. A lot of times I like to play examples of singing, and analyze them

with people, then have them try it with their own voice in whatever composition they are working on at the time. We look at the embellishments of the great jazz singers that are now part of our tradition. Every type of music – folk, country, gospel, jazz – all has its own specific em-

bellishments that identifies the music. Those are the things that make a voice sound more like an instrument. It’s important to bring back the understanding of those identifying characteristics. JAZZed: So what is next for you teaching wise? KM: I’m excited to be going back to Jazz Camp West this year. It’s really wonderful, just a great situation. I work with a wonderful pianist, Shanna Carlson, who is also a wonderful vocalist, and that’s the best kind of instrumentalist – one who also understands that tradition of jazz singing. JAZZed: What will those sessions look like? KM: I’ll go deeper with people. I like the nuts and bolts of jazz singing. To me, the basic qualities are rhythmic and harmonic fluency – that and story telling. I find that people can build up a “jazz singer personality” in their voice that can sound stylized in a way that cuts them off from their own sound. It’s important to not mistake traditional foundation for a particular sound, because the sound has to be unique to the individual singer. The voice is so unique, and we should understand the tradition, listen deeply, but that should not be confused at all with a specific stylized sound. JAZZed: Not to put words in your mouth, but is that another way of say don’t be “loungy”? KM: [laughs] It’s easy to become a caricature. I will be advocating as I always do to make it your own, let your own emotion come through, tell stories that come from your own life. That’s what is interesting [as opposed to], “Oh, she really sounds like Ella.” If you’ve done that, you’ve failed. Our quest as educators is to help people connect to the foundation, to learn the history and tradition of jazz voice. Part of that is copying for a while. But you want the emerging jazz singer to not copy the sound or let it devolve into some kind of stereotypical jazz character. You want them to get to their own, very real, very personal voice.

In its third year, this new concept for a camp is a hands-on intensive training week in jazz harmony. As music majors in college, many of us were treated to far too little knowledge of harmony. With a VERY small student/teacher ratio, this camp’s faculty* (including Michele Weir, Jason Smith, Jeremy Fox) will put you on a brand new path with your harmonic toolkit. In a short time, you will learn: Jazz Theory, Vocal Jazz Arranging, Jazz Piano, and Rehearsal Techniques. Improvisation and other topics related to jazz ensembles will be covered. By the end of the week, participants will have written their own vocal jazz chart, and will be able to play an entire jazz song on the piano. A safe and friendly environment, all experience levels are welcome. NOTE: THE JAZZ THEORY BOOT CAMP IS OPEN ONLY TO THE FIRST 18 REGISTRANTS.

The Vermont Jazz Center Summer Jazz Workshop, held on the campus of the beautiful Putney School , is an internationally recognized program that attracts students from around the world to its rigorous yet festive program. Currently in its 37th year, the Center was founded by legendary guitarist, Attila Zoller and is now run by Eugene Uman. The VJC encourages intergenerational ensembles and classes with participants ranging in age from 15 on up although the bulk of the students (60%) are adults. The summer workshop is distinctive due to the high quality of our instructors, the low teacher/student ratio, the strong sense of community spirit, and the gorgeous setting. Two programs run simultaneously and complement each other. Our vocal program is co-lead by Sheila Jordan and Jay Clayton. The instrumental program provides studies in theory/improvisation (3 levels), master-classes, listening, and ensembles. Every evening, faculty and students indulge in jam sessions into the wee hours.

Capital’s jazz studies program is one of the pioneering programs of its kind, with a strong emphasis on both classroom and applied experiences, including improvisation and composition. The program features a highly intensive study of jazz and contemporary music, combined with traditional theoretical studies, ensemble experience and courses in the arts and sciences. In addition to preparing students for success as performers, an undergraduate education in jazz studies is excellent preparation for entrance into the nation’s most prestigious graduate programs. Several of Capital’s jazz studies majors also have chosen to expand their career options by earning their teaching certification. In addition to the typical classes, Capital offers the opportunity to study and learn in many areas of music technology, recording (Reason, Logic and Pro Tools), music business, and various atypical small ensembles including Fusion Band, Rock Band, World Music Ensemble and Straight ahead jazz combos.

erklee College of Music was founded on two revolutionary ideas: that musicianship could be taught through the music of the time; and that our students need practical, professional skills for successful, sustainable music careers. While our bedrock philosophy has not changed, the music around us has—and requires that we evolve with it. We’ve demonstrated our commitment by wholeheartedly embracing change over the course of the last half-century. We continually update our curriculum and technology to keep them relevant, and attract diverse students who reflect the multiplicity of influences in today’s music. We prepare our students for a lifetime of professional and personal growth through the study of the arts, sciences, and humanities. And we are developing new initiatives to reach and influence an ever-widening audience. We are a microcosm of the music world, reflecting the interplay between music and culture; an environment where aspiring music professionals learn how to integrate new ideas, adapt to changing musical genres, and showcase their distinctive skills in an evolving community. We are at the center of a widening network of industry professionals who use their openness, virtuosity, and versatility to take music in surprising new directions. Founded on jazz and popular music rooted in the African cultural diaspora, our comprehensive curriculum is distinctly contemporary in its content and approach, and embraces the principal musical movements of our time. Through a course of scholarly and practical learning experiences integrating performance and writing, our curriculum covers the variety of influential styles, relevant technologies, and career opportunities open to today’s music professional. With more than a dozen performance and nonperformance majors, a diverse and talented student body representing more than 70 countries, and a music industry “who’s who” of alumni, Berklee is the world’s premier learning lab for the music of today — and tomorrow.

The jazz faculty in the Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance at Oakland University is focused on providing an education based on the fundamentals of America’s indigenous art music, jazz, but with the knowledge that the term “jazz” carries with it many interpretations. Armed with knowledge of theory, ear training, style, and listening skills, students from Oakland will enter the modern improvising musical world able to play standard tunes, but still develop a voice of their own. The Oakland jazz faculty recognizes the need to appeal to younger audiences, and focuses on extensive community partnerships with school districts such as Detroit, Pontiac, Rochester, Ypsilanti, Troy, and Ann Arbor. The Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance offers a BA or BM with a jazz minor. The Minor in Jazz Studies consists of classes such as jazz ensemble, jazz combo, jazz theory, jazz arranging, and jazz pedagogy. This minor is designed to give students a basis for further exploration into the broad world of jazz.

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.

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-to-date 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.

Chamber Music America is the national service organization for ensemble music professionals. Our members are thousands of individual musicians, ensembles, presenters, artist managers, composers, educators and others in the national chamber music community. CMA defines chamber music as music composed for small ensembles, with one musician per part, generally performed without a conductor. The term once referred only to Western classical music for small ensembles, such as string quartets. But today chamber music encompasses myriad forms, including contemporary and traditional jazz, classical and word genres. CMA serves the national ensemble music community by providing access to an array of professional resources and benefits, professional development seminars, grants and awards, and – through its National Conference and interactive website–opportunities to connect with musicians, presenters, managers and other chamber music professionals across the country

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.

“Let FREEDOM Ring: from Justice to Jazz” By: Dr. Larry Ridley, AAJC Executive Director On Friday June 29th 2012 at 7 p.m., the African American Jazz Caucus will hold the Second Annual “Let Freedom Ring: from Justice to Jazz” event at the Indiana Landmarks Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. We are very excited about this year’s upcoming event and wish to encourage all to attend.

The Journey Towards Freedom Last year, the African American Jazz Caucus was planning for an event that was to honor several Indiana jazz legends for their contributions to jazz and also to celebrate “Juneteenth” in conjunction with the remarkable efforts of Dr. Ronald Myers and the “National Association of Juneteenth Jazz Presenters” to create national awareness to the historical significance of Juneteenth as the event which officially ended slavery in America, some two years after President Lincoln’s “Emancipation Proclamation”. During the planning phase, newly elected AAJC president Bill Myers called for the need to identify a common theme and cultivate a concept that combines both elements of jazz awards and Juneteenth. Myers further asserted that, “We must use this event as an opportunity to grow, to expand our vision, and seek new ways to connect with the broader community.” We were less than two months away from our event and, frankly, that was a pretty tall order. Dr. Larry Ridley, AAJC executive director, lead this “Two-Minute Drill” with the board and committee members Edythe Fitzhugh, David Williams, Magdalena Ridley, Larry Clark, and others. Over the course of three days of deliberation, something wonderful happened: the – theme of “Freedom” emerged. This exploration process revealed that freedom is applicable within the context of musical expression to the jazz community, and even more importantly, the topic of freedom is inclusive and speaks to the much broader context of humanity. Upon making this discovery, we realized we were moving into a new direction and not sure how this might pan out. We also recognized this new direction to be rich with possibilities. Bill Myers then directed our attention to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and a speech that has been posted on the home page of the AAJC website for many years. It was Dr. King’s opening address of the 1964 Berlin Jazz Festival. It is through our faith in the wisdom of Dr. King’s teachings that we were able to move straightahead with confidence and the concept of “Let Freedom Ring: From Justice to Jazz” was born.

“Humanity and the Importance of Jazz” By Dr. Martin Luther King “God has wrought many things out of oppression. He has endowed his creatures with the capacity to create - and from this capacity has flowed the sweet songs of sorrow and joy that have allowed man to cope with his environment and many different situations. “Jazz speaks for life. The Blues tell the story of life’s difficulties, and if you think for a moment, you will realize that they take the hardest realities of life and put them into music, only to come out with some new hope or sense of triumph. This is triumphant music. “Modern Jazz has continued in this tradition, singing the songs of a more complicated urban existence. When life itself offers no order and meaning, the musician creates an order and meaning from the sounds of the earth which flow through his

instrument. “It is no wonder that so much of the search for identity among American Negroes was championed by Jazz musicians. Long before the modern essayists and scholars wrote of “racial identity” as a problem for a multi-racial world, musicians were returning to their roots to affirm that which was stirring within their souls. “Much of the power of our Freedom Movement in the United States has come from this music. It has strengthened us with its sweet rhythms when courage began to fail. It has calmed us with its rich harmonies when spirits were down. “And now, Jazz is exported to the world. For in the particular struggle of the Negro in America there is something akin to the universal struggle of modern man. Everybody has the Blues. Everybody longs for meaning. Everybody needs to love and be loved. Everybody needs to clap hands and be happy. Everybody longs for faith. In music, especially this broad category called Jazz, there is a stepping stone towards all of these.” (www.AAJC.us)

“How was the First Annual “Let Freedom Ring: from Justice to Jazz” Event?” Extraordinary! More than three hundred people attended the event. All but one of the event sponsors was new. We presented the “Indiana Jazz Masters Legacy Awards” to several Indiana legends both past and present including Dr. David Baker, Wes Montgomery, Freddie Hubbard, Jamey Aebersold, Dr. Willis Kirk, J.J. Johnson, Rev. Marvin Chandler, Slide Hampton, Noble Sissle, Virgil Jones and others. One particular award was given to legendary jazz photographer, author and historian Mr. Duncan Schiedt for his extraordinary


jazzforum work. There were several exciting musical tribute performances by trumpeter Victor Garcia, vocalist Kelleen Strutz, guitarist Steven Weakley and trombonist Carl Poposki. But perhaps the most compelling aspect of the evening occurred when a diverse group of individuals from all walks of life took the stage throughout the evening for 3-minutes each to share their personal response to one question – “What does Freedom mean to me?” This group included a corporate lawyer, a taxi cab driver originally from the Soviet Union, a “Tuskegee Airman”, a private business owner, a poet, a City Councilman, a pastor, and several others. The testimonials offered were powerful and insightful. The evening itself was amazing as it unfolded. With each award, each testimonial, each musical tribute performance, the experience deepened. It became apparent that we were all on this journey together and sharing the moment. The guest speakers became interconnected to the jazz musicians by giving voice to their own authentic riffs, interpretations and perspectives on the topic of freedom. It is worth noting here, that many of the attendees were not jazz fans. They attended the event based on it being a public event on the subject of freedom. But in the final analysis, many of these individuals developed a better understanding of jazz and perhaps a new appreciation. In any case, it’s all good. Since the First “Let Freedom Ring: From Justice to Jazz” event last October, the African American Jazz Caucus has been going through a reorganization. We are working on discovering better ways to engage the public interest and members of the jazz community, create value, and cultivate new audiences and growth that are relevant, meaningful, and inspiring.

Jazz Masters Legacy Award” honorees which we will cover in the next issue of JAZZed Magazine. At this year’s event, we will be making important announcements regarding the direction of the African American Jazz Caucus and some exciting new initiatives. One such initiative is the launching of the “Donald Meade Jazz Griot Award,” honoring the legendary Jazz Historian. Additionally, we have included a Freedom Award to honor those individuals in the broader community who have made significant contributions in promoting freedom and freedom of expression. These are the three such individuals we will be honoring this year. We hope that you will join us on

Please share these links with others to help us spread the word. Our motto is “Working Together Works.” https://vimeo.com/channels/aajc http://vimeo.com/billmyers/musicmartinandme In closing, we wish to share the following quote from one of the legendary jazz giants about Freedom.

Ms. Mari Evans is recognized worldwide for her work as a literary artist. For more info, go to: www.afropoets.net/marievans.html

“Put it this way: Jazz is a good barometer of freedom… In its beginnings, the United States of America spawned certain ideals of freedom and independence through which, eventually, jazz was evolved, and the music is so free that many people say it is the only unhampered, unhindered expression of complete freedom yet produced in this country.” - Edward Kennedy “Duke” Ellington

“So what is new for Number Two?” The Second Annual “Let Freedom Ring: From Justice to Jazz” event looks to be even better than before. Our committee is currently engaged in the selection process of this year’s “Indiana

The new Grover Roll Ring is designed to aid concert percussionists with the execution of tambourine thumb rolls. This circular ring helps players easily create the friction needed to produce a smooth, even sounding “thumb” or finger roll. The 1” wide selfadhesive band is specially shaped to conform to the outer circular edge of a headed concert tambourine. It has a special non-permanent adhesive backing that makes it super easy to put on and take off in seconds. The Roll Ring is reusable and can be applied and stored numerous times.

Backbeat

Red Holloway 1927 – 2012

A saxophone player whose career bridged eras from bebop to jazz fusion, Red Holloway recently passed away in San Luis Obispo, California at the age of 64. Holloway had performed with some of the biggest names in jazz, including Sonny Rollins, Lester Young, and Lionel Hampton. Holloway was wired from the start to thrive in any artistic environment. “Music to me is music,” he told Jazz Journal International some years ago. “I really don’t care what kind it is. I just try and figure out how I can make that particular type of music swing. That’s what is important.” Holloway joined the Army at the age of 19 and went on to serve as the headmaster of the US Fifth Army Band. He continued playing and came to prominence during a run with organist Jack McDuff, whose band also included up-and-coming guitarist George Benson. Holloway made a point of providing timeless instrumental support to classic singers like Etta James, Joe Williams, Carmen McRae, and Jackie Ryan. Red Holloway received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Los Angeles Jazz Society in 2004.
