WINNING SPINS By George Kanzler WO QUINTETS WITH THE SAME novel two-brass frontline and an affinity for mid-20th century jazz repertoire provide this month's delightful pair of Winning Spins. Although quintets usually involve horns from the brass and reed families, both trombonist Wycliffe Gordon and cornetist Warren Vaché have chosen to pair their own instruments with those from the other big band brass section, Gordon selecting trumpeter Terell Stafford and Vaché picking trombonist John Allred. Both groups feature bop-oriented classics and originals, with an occasional standard to boot. The Warren Vaché-John Allred group heard on Top Shelf (Arbors Records), is what Vaché considers his "bop band," and in keeping with the bebop/hard bop era from which the tunes are drawn or referenced, neither he nor Allred employ mutes on the CD. As Vaché also points out, this music "intrigues me because it swings and is harmonically more sophisticated than traditional jazz … but maintains the same energy." Often associated with that "traditional jazz" of the Swing Era and earlier, Vaché is, like Gordon, the other CD leader, a jazz omnivore whose versatility embraces stylistic genres and generations - as do the other members of the quintet here from Allred to pianist Tardo Hammer, bassist Nicki Parrott and drummer Leroy Williams. While Vaché and Allred engage the sophisticated harmonies and often fleet tempos of bop here, they also retain their embrace of the more expressive aspects of earlier jazz horn playing, manipulating vibrato and slurring or sliding notes. Much of the charm of the CD lies in the brisk pace, the variety of the tunes and their crisp execution. A pair of numbers associated with the late trumpeter Blue Mitchell open the CD: Mitchell's own uptempo title tune and Ronnell Bright's mid-tempo "Sweet Pumpkin." Horn solos on both - as on all of this album eschew the dry, swift note patterns preferred by many neo-boppers in favor of a more melodically developed approach. Even on bassist Parrott's bop burner "Aussieology" (an homage to Charlie Parker's "Ornithology") Vaché fashions a linear melodic line over the rapid-fire changes; and on Thelonious Monk's "Ba-lue Bolivar Ba-Lues," both horns play off Monk's sweet-and-sour blues take in coyly acerbic solos. Other highlights from the bop/hard-bop era include Clifford Brown's staccato bright "Tiny Capers," with tight four bar exchanges (try to catch the "Easter Parade" quote); Benny Golson's longform "Whisper Not;" and Bud Powell's "A Parisian Thoroughfare," complete with city traf-

fic impressions. Even two standards, "The Best Thing for You" and "By Myself," are given uptempo treatments reminiscent of vintage hard-bop quintets. By the way, it's Parrott singing on the one vocal ballad, not the credited Vaché. The quintet (pianist Mike LeDonne, bassist David Wong and drummer Kenny Washington complete it) heard on Wycliffe Gordon's Cone and T-Staff (Criss Cross) differs sonically from the one on Top Shelf in its frequent reliance on mutes by both the trombonist-leader and trumpeter Stafford, a strategy that also further emphasizes the wider palette of Gordon's trombone relative to Allred's. But like Vaché, Gordon delves into mid-20th Century repertoire, the CD beginning with Wes Montgomery's uptempo 3/4 "West Coast Blues," and including Illinois Jacquet's "Robbin's Nest (aka Why Have A Falling Out, Just When We're Falling in Love?)," Curtis Fuller's hard-bop backbeat "Arabia," and Oscar Pettiford's catchy-but-intricate "Tricotism" - that last done as a trombonebass-drums trio. Gordon uses his impressive wah-wah plunger technique to evoke romantic passion on the Ellington-Strayhorn piece "StarCrossed Lovers" and sly, bluesy humor on his own "Cheeky!" Stafford manages to convey emotions without a mute, making his open horn sigh and yearn in his ballad feature: "Everything continued on page 40

ROD BALTIMORE’S NEW YORK WOODW

S P O T L 168 W. 48th St. New York Phone: 212-302-5893 Fax JIMMY SCOTT BLUE NOTE / AUGUST 31 AND SEPTEMBER 1 As Little Jimmy Scott in the late 1940s and 1950s, this singer, who's celebrating his 85th birthday at this two-day gig presented by Jill Newman Productions, almost single-handedly created a new heartfelt approach to singing, one flirting with pathos. Employing his ethereally yet naturally (not falsetto) high voice melodramatically behind-the-beat on love and longing songs, he stressed sentiment, emotion and drama. He's been a major influence on such early R&B singers as Curtis Mayfield as well as on Frankie Valli. Nancy Wilson's arch dramatic style owes a huge debt to Scott's glacial tempos. Since returning to performing in the 1980s after a two-decade absence, Scott has largely stuck with songs he's made his own, including "Heaven," "The Masquerade Is Over" and his very first hit, "Everybody's Somebody's Fool." GK MIKE LONGO NEW YORK CITY BAHÁ’Í CENTER / SEPTEMBER 28 Some leaders (i.e., Duke, Miles, Mingus) leave an indelible impression upon their sidemen that lasts a lifetime. It's been almost two decades since Mike Longo worked with Dizzy Gillespie, and over three decades since he spent 8 years as pianist and musical director of his combo, but Diz remains one of his inspirations - along with his one-time teacher Oscar Peterson. Longo learned the art of making a band both artistically viable and entertaining from Dizzy, and he's been applying that formula - and more than a little Peterson influence - to his trio recordings. The latest, Sting Like A Bee (CAP), pays tribute to Peterson with a "West Side Story Medley" and Diz with a solo version of "Kush," but the trio, which includes Ray Mosca on drums and Paul West on bass, also finds captivating grooves on originals and tunes by Wayne Shorter. GK RUSS LOSSING CORNELIA STREET CAFÉ / SEPTEMBER 25 He's a masterful utilizer of musical space. His spare, impressionist and ruminative keyboard approach will remind many of Keith Jarrett and Paul Bley. Lossing's most recent CD, Personal Tonal (Fresh Sound), a quartet effort bringing together bassist John Hébert, drummer Eric McPherson and wholly distinctive alto saxophonist Loren Stillman, is the best recorded evidence yet of Lossing's talent as an improviser influenced by modern classical music but clearly within the left-of-center jazz tradition exemplified by, say, Monk and Andrew Hill. Among the non-Lossing pieces assayed are "Scrapple From The Apple," "Here's That Rainy Day" and an obscure bit of Ellingtonia called "Heaven." It's music demanding and deserving careful attention. With him for this trio date will be Hébert and master percussionist Paul Motian. PB EDDIE HENDERSON SMOKE / SEPTEMBER 10 AND 11 Legend has it that trumpeter Eddie Henderson received his first lesson on the instrument from no less than Louis Armstrong, a close friend of Henderson's musical family. As a teenager, Eddie gigged with another horn-playing friend of the folks, Miles Davis. Though he seemed destined for a career in music, Eddie was also interested in science and became a doctor. He practiced medicine part-time at a clinic in the Bay Area for a decade. Part of the deal was that, when opportunity called, he could take breaks to go on the road with Herbie Hancock, Pharoah Sanders, Art Blakey, Billy Harper and other greats. The good doctor will also play with bassist Cecil McBee's group at the Jazz Standard on Sept. 1-2. EK BRIAN BLADE VILLAGE VANGUARD / SEPTEMBER 7-12 As a sideman, from his early days in New Orleans with Nicholas Payton to his stints with Joshua Redman, Wayne Shorter's Quartet, and a soon-to-tour trio with Chick Corea and Christian McBride, drummer Brian Blade has always been valued for his nimble responsiveness, crisp rhythmic touch and rainbow palette of timbrel colors. As a leader, Blade has ventured beyond the confines of jazz - on his last CD, Mama Rosa, he sings and plays guitar in largely blues-folk-gospel settings - incorporating aspects of country and blues, including pedal steel guitar, into his ensemble. At the Vanguard, the Brian Blade Fellowship, a sextet project with New Orleans pianist Jon Cowherd, will feature two saxophonists (Myron Walden and Melvin Butler) and guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel. GK

L I G H T Fax: 212-302-5895 - Buy - Sell - Rent - Repair - Cons. AYAKO SHIRASAKI SMALLS / SEPTEMBER 15 Pianist Shirasaki was raised on bebop. She began classical piano studies as a preschooler, and from an age when most youngsters would be preoccupied with Beanie Babies and Hello Kitty, she was transcribing solos by Bud Powell and Charlie Parker. Ayako's main complaint about beginning to gig professionally as a tween? There was no one her own age in the clubs. You can hear her influences and Ayako's own distinctive musical personality on a new solo piano recording, Falling Leaves: Live in Hamburg (Jan Matthies), which includes tunes by Ellington, Bird and Rollins, as well as traditional Japanese melodies. Join Ayako as she celebrates the CD's release at Smalls. Or catch her when she plays in Bryant Park at lunchtime on Sept. 6-10. EK EHUD ASHERIE KITANO / SEPTEMBER 2 Israeli-born pianist Asherie insists that he first became hooked on jazz while spending countless evenings as a teenager in the audience at Smalls. In any case, he's become one of this decade's most fluent and inventive keyboard players, evidenced by three ebullient Posi-tone CDs - and a new one called Welcome to New York on the Arbors Records label. Material from that 2010 effort (NYCentric tunes like "Drop Me Off In Harlem," "Take The A Train" and "52nd Street Theme") will doubtless dominate proceedings at Kitano, where he'll be joined by the crew that recorded them with him: Harry Allen playing tenor, David Wong on bass and Chuck Riggs doing the drumming. Incidentally, Ehud will already have done a solo set at Smalls the previous night. PB JOE FARNSWORTH IBIZA / SEPTEMBER 23 AND 30 Regulars at Smoke know Farnsworth as an inventive drummer in the modern mainstream tradition of Max Roach, Billy Higgins and Art Taylor. George Coleman, Harold Mabern and Cedar Walton are among the headliners there who utilize his talents. He's also a key member of the collective sextet One For All which makes that Upper West Side club its home base - and he's usually heard behind Mike LeDonne's Hammond B3 there on Tuesday Organ Nights. For these two evenings, though, he moves to the Bronx for sets on which he'll back several of his longtime Smoke pals: LeDonne (piano), Eric Alexander (tenor) and John Webber (bass). Look for him, too, at Jazz Standard on Sept. 16-19 as part of a quartet with Webber, Steve Grossman and Larry Willis. PB DARCY JAMES ARGUE IRIDIUM / SEPTEMBER 22 Among the wealth of exciting sets recorded at this year's Newport Jazz Festival now archived at www.npr.org is one documenting an August 7 concert by arranger Argue's Secret Society, an 18-member orchestra playing what its leader likes to call "steampunk." The fact that Secret Society was apparently the first ensemble booked by George Wein for Newport 2010 speaks volumes about Argue's growing critical reputation. The release last year of Infernal Machines (New Amsterdam Records) won him mounds of positive media attention and a bunch of awards. The music reflects his admiration for arrangers like Gil Evans, Bob Brookmeyer and Maria Schneider - he's studied with both Brookmeyer and Schneider. Congratulations to Iridium for booking this appearance, which will surely pack the house. PB BYRON STRIPLING KAYE PLAYHOUSE / SEPTEMBER 13 Although he once portrayed the young Louis Armstrong in the musical "Satchmo!", Byron Stripling definitely isn't a one-trick pony. Sure, his singing and trumpet playing impressions of Louis are spot-on, imbued with larger-than-life vivacity. But the trumpet prowess and extroverted, charismatic charm are for real too, and go way beyond embodying the spirit of Pops. Stripling is a player who can incorporate modern as well as traditional elements, bebop runs as well as Louis' "West End Blues" cadenza, into his playing. He's a fine big band lead trumpeter, too. This Sidney Bechet Society salute to "Hot Jazz: New Orleans and Swing," also features clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, guitarist Howard Alden, bassist Dwayne Burno, and drummer Marion Felder.

NEW JERSEY JAZZ By Sheila Anderson, Author/Announcer, WBGO, 88.3fm HELIO ALVES SHANGHAI JAZZ / SEPTEMBER 4 Himself the son of two pianists, Alves was born in Sao Paulo and began piano lessons at six. Following his early immersion in the pop standards and classical music favored by his parents, he gravitated in his teens toward jazz. Eventually, he studied at Berklee and then, at the urging of trumpeter Claudio Roditi, a fellow Brazilian, he relocated to New York. A growing professional reputation soon led to gigs with Joe Henderson, Slide Hampton, Louis Hayes and Paquito d'Rivera, as well as the release of some excellent CDs on the indie label called Reservoir. We're particularly taken with the most recent of them, It's Clear, which features collaborations with guitarist Romero Lubambo on tunes crafted by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luis Ecca, Jaco Do Bandolim and Helio himself. CURTIS BROTHERS SOMERVILLE JAZZ FESTIVAL / SEPTEMBER 12 Latin jazz specialists Zaccai (piano) and Luques (bass), Hartford natives still in their twenties, are well-schooled, having graduated the New England Conservatory and Berklee respectively. They've earned their stripes as sidemen with the likes of Brian Lynch, Sean Jones, Gary Burton and Donald Harrison. One good example of their intuitive work together is Blood, Spirit, Land, Water, Freedom, a 2008 quartet effort that cooks nicely at a variety of tempos. Their 1:00 PM set will kick off an entire afternoon of free music held outdoors, rain or shine. Other attractions include a Lou Donaldson group, singer Melissa Walker and Louis Hayes. ALAN DALE'S NEW LEGACY JAZZ BAND PALMER SQUARE JAZZFEAST / SEPTEMBER 11 Drummer Dale and his group return to this long-running New Jersey Jazz Society event for the nineteenth straight year to play a 1:15 PM set at Palmer Square Green in downtown Princeton. The high-energy New Legacy group has earned high marks over the long haul with dates at clubs, casinos, colleges, corporate events and private parties up and down the Eastern Seaboard. Others on the bill for this year's JazzFeast include the Princeton University Jazztet, Vince Giordano's Nighthawks Orchestra and an assemblage billed as Nicki Parrott & Friends that happens to include Bucky Pizzarelli, Rossano Sportiello and Harry Allen, among others. There's no admission charge. RADAM SCHWARTZ CECIL’S / SEPTEMBER 11 An organist (and sometimes pianist) capable of generating waves of excitement, Schwartz has built a solid reputation over the last thirty years, backing such musicians as Arthur and Red Prysock, Al Hibbler, Lockjaw Davis, Fathead Newman and saxophonist Jimmy Ford. We have no trouble recommending a pair of fairly recent CDs under Radam’s leadership: Conspiracy For Positivity (Arabesque) and Blues Citizens (Savant). We’ve also enjoyed his work with a recording group called Brooklyn Soul Organization. If you love the kind of high-voltage stuff once generated by Jimmy Smith, Charles Earland and Jack McDuff, you’ll want to catch Radam, whose new Arabesque release, Songs For The Soul, provides a suitable excuse for this album launch party gig. Trumpeter James Gibbs III, saxophonist Anthony Ware, guitarist Misha Fatkiev and drummer Joe Brown Jr will join him.

SONNY ROLLINS A GIANT PLAYS ON By Yvonne Ervin

HIS MONTH, LEGENDARY TENOR T saxophonist Sonny Rollins celebrates his eightieth birthday with a concert at the Beacon Theater. In the event poster photo taken by John Abbott, a robust Rollins sports a large white Afro and beard, offset by a bright purple shirt. Most jazz musicians born during the Depression are either long gone or in failing health. In fact, four of the guest artists heard at Rollins' 1995 Beacon performance have passed away. Yet Rollins is still going strong, playing with the gusto and verve that have always characterized his work. "I guess I'm probably in better shape than some of my contemporaries," says Rollins, "because back in the Fifties, I became aware of health foods and of taking care of myself. Apparently, it paid off. I was deeply into the narcotics scene back in the Forties, and it wasn't until the mid-Fifties that I was able to extricate myself from the demon drug." After cleaning himself up, Rollins found a fine role model in trumpeter Clifford Brown. "He didn't get involved with those debilitating drugs. I had already turned the corner at the time but it was good to be around straight-living people like Clifford," Rollins says of his time with Brown in 1955. "It was one of the high points in my life, my relationship with Clifford. He was a wonderful person, a great musician and very humble." Rollins was born on September 7, 1930 in Harlem, which he says was "a very propitious place to be born." That neighborhood was hopping in the late Thirties and music was everywhere. On his walk to school, he'd pass the

Savoy Ballroom, the Cotton Club, and many other local music landmarks. "By seven, when I got my alto saxophone," he recalls, "I knew I wanted to be a musician." The first jazzman Rollins recalls hearing was Fats Waller. "His playing, his personality and his musicianship had a deep effect on me. He was the first person who really showed me that there's something beautiful and great about life - and that was playing jazz." Louis Jordan, a very popular bandleader whose Tympany Five was an influential precursor to rhythm and blues, was Rollins' first influence on saxophone. But in 1939, when Coleman Hawkins' landmark "Body and Soul" was released, Rollins was hooked. "It was a graduation, in effect," muses Rollins. "Jordan's music affected me in a visceral way. But Hawkins was intellectual as well as visceral, and the band exhibited greater musicianship. So I can say I graduated to Hawkins, even though I don't mean to diminish Jordan's early influence on me. "Hawkins lived in Sugar Hill near my home and I was often sitting on his apartment building's stoop, waiting for him to come home around six o'clock. Sure enough, he'd drive up and I'd be there with my 8 x 10 glossy for him to sign," Rollins recalls. "He drove a big Cadillac and he was always sharp, well dressed and the epitome of dignity." Rollins switched to tenor at sixteen. Music wasn't his only artistic pursuit at the time. He also liked cartooning, drawing, and painting with watercolors. "Wayne Shorter told me that he also liked to draw when he was younger. But music was there for me when I got out of high school. It offered a way to make some money, whereas art didn't seem to generate any revenue stream. The next thing I know, I was playing with the big boys." Those "big boys" included Thelonious Monk. During high school, he was in a band that played opposite Monk's trio at Club Baron on Lenox Avenue. "Monk was a really big boost to my career. He took a liking to me when I was still in high school. Later on, I got to play in his band and he became my musical mentor. But we were also close friends and hung out together a lot. Those were great days." Before turning twenty, Rollins had already played with Babs Gonzales, J.J. Johnson, Bud Powell and Miles Davis. "It's almost inconceivable to me today that I was there with all these guys. In retrospect I say, 'Holy Cow! Look at the people I associated with!' It's mind-blowing!" Rollins says he always wanted to play with Ellington and Basie but never had the chance to do so. "I'd also like to have played with Fats Waller. I think I would have felt right at home with his exuberance." At this month's concert, his first in New York for three years, he'll be joined by three guests: trumpeter Roy Hargrove, guitarist Jim Hall and bassist Christian McBride. Also onstage will be the other members of Rollins' current quintet. In addition to his long-time bassist Bob Cranshaw, they include guitarist Russell Malone, percussionist Sammy Figueroa and drummer Kobie Watkins.

MOSE ALLISON A PHILOSOPHER AT THE PIANO By Ken Dryden

S A PIANIST, HE ISN'T EASY TO PIGEA onhole stylistically, since he's always incorporated jazz, blues and boogie-woogie into his playing. Known for his amusing vocal originals which come across as simple yet wittily ironic observations on life, Mose Allison is now in his seventh decade as a fulltime performer, with over forty albums and around 150 compositions to his credit. Born on his grandfather's farm in Tippo, Mississippi, Mose was a child of the Great Depression. "I think I was thirteen before we had electricity," he recalls. "One cousin had a windup Victrola, so I heard the records she had, but I didn't listen to the radio before I was thirteen." Allison was drawn to the piano at the age of five. "I took piano lessons for several years but didn't learn to read music. Once I discovered I could pick out tunes by ear, I quit those lessons. Now I can't read a piano part, although I can write arrangements. I started out playing boogie-woogie [he slowly pronounces 'boo-gee woogee'], which was popular in the 1930s. Pete Johnson and Albert Ammons were the main guys." Nat King Cole, Louis Jordan, Duke Ellington, Fats Waller and Louis Armstrong were also among young Mose's inspirations. Allison played trumpet in his high school marching band and in local dance groups. He'd already begun writing songs. In 1946, after a year at the University of Mississippi, he was inducted into the U.S. Army, where he was part of a military ensemble that performed in officers' clubs. After being discharged, he returned to Ole Miss, but soon left to play professionally. Eventually, he married and enrolled at

Louisiana State University, from which he graduated in 1952 with a degree in English and Philosophy. Allison's description of his career path is rather nonchalant. "You know, I never really thought about that. I just made a living as I went along. I figured as long as I could survive financially, I'd keep up with it." He has a unique approach to songwriting, too. "I start with the punch line, whatever that is. Then I work away at it mentally until I go to the piano, which is usually some while later." Considering that he's known for playing jazz and blues, his listening habits might surprise some longtime fans. "I don't listen to that much music. But when I do, it's generally what you might call far-out classical things. I admire Wolfgang Rihm, a German classical composer who's still alive, I also like Carl Ruggles' work a lot. But I quit listening to most people several years ago." Allison's vocal style reflects the influence of such blues singers as Percy Mayfield. Moving to New York in 1956, he soon was working as a pianist with hornmen like Al Cohn, Stan Getz, Zoot Sims and Gerry Mulligan, in addition to leading his own trio. In 1957, Allison landed a contract with Prestige. After several albums for that label, Mose recorded for Columbia, Atlantic and Blue Note. Yet he believes that much of his worldwide audience came to know him from hearing rock groups' versions of his songs. "The Who introduced me to new listeners [by recording his "Young Man Blues" on their Live at Leeds album]. I say that the British saved me because they started doing my stuff real early. The only American who covered one of my tunes back then was Bonnie Raitt." Van Morrison, Elvis Costello and Diana Krall are among the many artists who've recorded Allison numbers more recently. After a flurry of recording up through the mid-1970s, Allison cut back on trips to the studio. A dozen years lapsed between Gimcracks and Gewgaws (Blue Note) and the recent The Way of the World (Anti). Will there be a followup to his latest CD? "I don't intend to get back into the studio," he says. "I did that one just to see how it would work. Joe Henry talked me into it. He's a good musician who has a great reputation as a producer. He told me years ago that he wanted to record me. I put him off for a couple of years, but he kept at it. I finally decided, 'Why not?' I'm not counting it out, but I don't have any plans to record again anytime soon." Still, a slowdown in recording activity doesn't mean that Mose isn't busy. "I've been traveling all over the place. To Europe a couple of times, to Seattle and Vancouver. I'm tired. I work about a hundred nights a year, maybe more." Mose Allison performs with bassist Ratzo Harris and drummer Tom Whaley at the Jazz Standard on September 3-5. Allison photo by Michael Wilson

JAZZWOMEN! By Elzy Kolb Soul station Pianist Janice Friedman's Web site describes her as "performer, arranger, composer, teacher, copyist, and one heck of a good soul." One example of the last attribute is that she's taken part in the September 11 remembrance gig, The September Concert: The Heart of Jazz, every year since 2005. Singer/organizer E.J. Decker "puts together groups, you play with whoever you're with, which has lots of twists and turns you're not expecting," Janice says. "You get to see and hear people you don't see and hear all the time. There's a good feeling of the jazz community getting together." She likes to put special thought into choosing material for the gig: "You want it to be appropriate for the occasion, but not so sad that nobody's going to smile forever. You go for a feeling of uplifting. The occasion doesn't lose its significance, we talk about how we're feeling -- it doesn't go away." Janice says another part of being a "good soul" is being patient with less experienced players: "I'm very patient and supportive, it's part of my personality. I like to hear what they're doing and make it happen. I make the music the most important thing, not your ego or anything else." The good soul qualifies, "A little flash of ego is OK, it can be exciting, but otherwise it gets in the way." This year's September Concert: The Heart of Jazz will be at the Sugar Bar on Sept. 10-11, starting at 6 p.m. Dozens of players always turn out for this event, and the lineup is likely to include keyboardists Mala Waldron and Deanna Witkowski, saxophonist Carol Sudhalter and many others. Kudos to E.J. and all of the people who work so hard to put this together. You can also catch Janice at brunch at the Hibiscus in Morristown, NJ on Sept. 12, Bar Luna on Wednesdays, starting Sept. 15, and at Sofia's on Sept. 16.

Jay recalls, sounding slightly amazed. The guitarist made such a positive impression that she called him and suggested they play together. Jack recorded their first take of the standard, they both still have the recording and both still like the way they did it. Jack plays on In and Out of Love, along with bassist Jay Anderson. Of "I Hear a Rhapsody," she says: "I had never performed it. I'm really a purist with lyrics. I have to love the words and I didn't like the way it began. Then I learned the verse and that changed everything." She included two ballads, one major, one minor - "You don't analyze them when you're listening, but you know" - and "Freedom Jazz Dance" because "I wanted something high energy, and it's a standard but an instrumental standard." The entire recording session took about five hours. "That's the way I do music. I choose tunes I love, I know them and I just do them," Jay says. "I don't write a lot of elaborate arrangements. I want the musicians' input, too, I like the openness of that." Jay's dream is to celebrate her 70th birthday next year with a concert featuring 13 arrangements for string chamber orchestra, jazz trio and horn soloists. Of course, she plans to sing, along with her long-time friend and colleague Sheila Jordan. She's looking forward to tackling such a big project and says, "You start talking about it and it becomes real." In the meantime, Jay features songs from her latest CD at the Cornelia Street CafĂŠ on Sept. 19.

High-test standards Vocalist Jay Clayton's new CD, In and Out of Love (Sunnyside), is a collection of "old favorites. I can tell you my relationship to every song." For example, "How Deep Is the Ocean" is the first tune she ever sang with her long-time collaborator guitarist Jack Wilkins. "Going way back, I heard Jack at Sweet Basil with Chet Baker - I heard Chet Baker live, isn't that something,"

Mad about tunes When planning her new live CD, Can You Hear Me Now? (Mad-Kat), San Francisco-based vocalist Madeline Eastman focused on standards: "I thought I'd take songs that people would be familiar with and give them a little twist. Material familiar to the public is a joy to hear when something different is done to them." For Madeline, that "something different" might include ad libbing a list of ways to "Make Someone Happy" or a delightful "Maiden Voyage" mash-up in "Slow Boat to China." She says "Singers have the good fortune of having a lyric to work with. It's a thrill to improvise lyrically. You have to understand what the song is about and the intent of the lyric, then it can be done a million ways. That's part of the fun."

Madeline puts the "Mad" in the Mad-Kat label, which she founded about two decades ago with fellow Bay Area vocalist Kitty Margolis. "We wanted to take our careers in our own hands instead of waiting for someone to discover us." Madeline has recorded with greats like Tony Williams, Tom Harrell, Kenny Barron, and most recently Rufus Reid, Matt Wilson and Randy Porter, but she almost never comes to New York. She'll be in the Big Apple celebrating the new release at Kitano on Sept. 22. The gig "feels almost like a debut for me. I'm going to be in town for a couple of weeks, going out to hear music and soaking up New York," she says. "I'm dying to play the material from the new CD in New York, and debut some new material, too."

B A C K S T A G E PA S S JAZZ ANECDOTE BY BILL CROW Bill Crow's books "Jazz Anecdotes" and "From Birdland to Broadway" can be found at your favorite bookstore, and at www.billcrowbass.com along with many interesting photos and links. When Al Cohn's son, Joe, was about twelve years old, he was visiting Zoot and Louise Sims at their home in West Nyack. Zoot took Joe down to his basement music studio and put on a record by the Beach Boys. "This is what I really listen to," Zoot confided. Joe didn't think anything of it at the time, but realized, twenty five years later, that Zoot was putting him on a little. The question remains, where did Zoot get a Beach Boys record? On a Richard Maltby tour, the band played a St. Patrick's Day dance in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. During the last set a woman approached the band, wearing a green cellophane derby and a cardboard leprechaun mask. She leaned towards Ken Arzburger and inquired, "Dublin?" Ken replied, "No, lady, just saxophone."

A Moment You Missed by Fran Kaufman Hot House Contributing Photographer Pianist Dave Brubeck, who is about to turn 90, kicked off the Litchfield Jazz Festival with a spectacular performance. Even more moving was drummer Matt Wilson's interview with Dave the next day. Listening to Brubeck speak of his life, his military service, his credo and his music goes right to the "top ten" of my jazz experiences. BTW, Brubeck finished the weekend by closing the Newport Jazz Festival in a performance with Wynton Marsalis. May we all celebrate our 90th with such energy and good health.
