WINNING SPINS By George Kanzler EREMY PELT AND RALPH ALESSI, two of the brightest younger trumpet stars on today's Big Apple scene, contribute the pair of albums that make up this Winning Spins. While Pelt leans toward the hard-bop, post-bop mainstream here, Alessi is more experimental and exploratory, as apt to head outside as inside. Yet both are superb brass virtuosi, albeit with their own distinctive sounds: Pelt's slightly burnished, with a warm, forthright tone; Alessi’s more brittle and mercurial, with a brighter, varnished character. Jeremy Pelt's High Note album Men of Honor presents the trumpeter's latest acoustic working band (he also has an ensemble that delves into electronic fusion). It's a quintet that features tenor saxophonist J.D. Allen, pianist Danny Grissett, bassist Wayne Burno and drummer Gerald Cleaver. The music also serves as a showcase for the band's impressive writing talents, with four of the eight selections by Pelt and one each by the other members. Pelt's numbers cover a broad stylistic swath, from the heartbeat tempo "Illusion," his solo intimately Harmon-muted; to "Milo Hayward" and "Us/Them," less groovy than jagged, the former a stop-start theme with chunky breaks that provoke staccato phrasing from the soloists and the latter a counterpoint between theme/horn solos and drum breaks. But Pelt's most arresting composition is "Danny Mack," with its rumbling, stabbing, dissonant piano chords under a sailing horns line and freely flexible rhythm base reminiscent of Miles Davis' last great late-1960s quintet. Allen's "Brooklyn Bound" also recalls that era with its modal waltz feel, horns floating over the rhythm in a "Maiden Voyage" mode, Pelt richly romantic on flugelhorn. Cleaver's "From A Life of the Same Name" is a surprise, a gorgeous ballad from the drummer, who sticks mostly to brushes behind lush flugelhorn and tenor solos. Burno's "Backroads," the CD opener, is a hard bop strut that launches solos with a repeated tag, both Allen and Pelt avoiding the obvious: the tenor with crisp, melodic lines; Pelt prancing brightly over the changes. Grissett's "Without You," another waltz-inflected ballad, is highlighted by short, elegant solos leaving the listener wanting more. It's an enticing way to end an album. Although recorded five to six years ago, Ralph Alessi's just-released Cognitive Dissonance (CAMJazz) is decidedly au courant. Alessi assembled an extraordinary quartet for the project, including pianist Jason Moran (Andy Milne subs on two tracks) and drummer

J

10

Nasheet Waits from Moran's celebrated trio Bandwagon, as well as the formidable bassist Drew Gress. Of the fifteen tracks, ten are under four minutes each in duration, while only one, the pianoless 6:37 trio "Duel" is over five minutes. Yet each track is a richly episodic, manyfaceted little gem of intriguing, questing jazz. The opening track transports a Big Easy shuffle-march into the 21st Century as Waits and Gress pull it centrifugally, Alessi's trumpet briskly negotiating the terrain. Contrasts abound throughout, with Moran lavishly consonant at times, jaggedly dissonant at others; Alessi alternating a quicksilver freneticism with moments of alluring, smooth melodicism. The two are completely beguiling on a pair of duets, "Goodbye Ruth's," with muted trumpet enhanced by a subtle echo; and "Sunflower," imbued with a tart lyricism. Alessi's compositions are filled with inventive surprises, from the martial tattoos punctuating the racing "A Plenty" and catchy TV jinglelike theme alternating with outbursts of "Dog Walking" (a redolent title), to the full narrative arc of the trio (sans piano) piece "Option 8" and chiming yet weighty Moran piano and intense trumpet emoting of the lovely "Wait." The various tunes are also a kaleidoscope of shifting tempos, meters and rhythms, displaying an amazingly nimble band that avoids the static at all costs.

ROD BALTIMORE’S NEW YORK WOODW

S P O T L 168 W. 48th St. New York Phone: 212-302-5893 Fax REBECCA KILGORE FEINSTEIN'S / AUGUST 2-4 Since the passing of Margaret Whiting and Rosemary Clooney, no one's carried on the Swing Era band "girl singer" tradition as well as Rebecca Kilgore. Her recordings with pianist/singer Dave Frishberg are unadulterated delights (their latest is Why Fight the Feeling?, a tribute to Frank Loesser), as are her buoyant no-nonsense vocals with swing aggregations led by Johnny Varro and John Sheridan. This engagement at Manhattan's top cabaret jazz room, being billed as "Lady Day and Prez: A Musical Tribute to Billie Holiday and Lester Young," features her with tenor saxophonist Harry Allen's quartet. She and Allen are no strangers but rather an empathetic team heard on two "Broadway" albums (South Pacific and Guys and Dolls) by the Harry Allen-Joe Cohn Quartet for the Arbors Records label. GK LEWIS NASH VILLAGE VANGUARD / AUGUST 10-15 It's been 30 years since legendary vocalist Betty Carter imported the young drummer Lewis Nash from Phoenix to play with her New York-based group. Since then, Nash has brought his melodic soloing and celebrated brush work to the world's stages with a literal Who's Who of jazz, from Tommy Flanagan and Hank Jones to Diana Krall and Natalie Cole. He has been heard as a sideman on more than 400 albums and began performing and recording under his own name more than two decades ago. Nash manages to work in a few gigs with his own group each year. This month, Nash's stellar quintet at the Vanguard will feature Jeremy Pelt on trumpet, Jimmy Greene on saxophone, Renee Rosnes at the piano and Peter Washington playing bass. YE GENE BERTONCINI KITANO / AUGUST 20 AND 21 Suave elegance is in short supply in much of today's jazz, but Gene Bertoncini possesses it in abundance. Favoring the classical, nylon-string acoustic guitar, which he amplifies, Bertoncini weaves a sophisticated spell with his lyrical, intricate melodies and improvisations. A master of subtle rhythms - only Brazilian guitarists play bossa nova with equal grace - Bertoncini is also an empathetic collaborator. Check out his duos with fellow acoustic guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli or his many contributions to the discography of singers, like his stunning duets with Meredith D'Ambrosio. His latest CD, Concerti, features him with a string ensemble. Bertoncini is also a supple swinger, as he'll no doubt demonstrate during this trio gig which features the talents of bassist Ike Sturm and drummer Joe Corsello. GK JESSE ELDER BARGEMUSIC / AUGUST 9 AND 16 Although he's only twenty-something, Brooklyn-based pianist Jesse Elder has already racked up four wins in the ASCAP Young Jazz Composers Competition and has either performed or recorded with a Who's Who of cutting-edge jazz and avant-garde musicians. His distinctive piano style - definitely out of the Thelonious Monk lineage - is matched by original compositions employing a controlled chaos of abrupt shifts and angled contours. Elder's 2009 album, Winding Shells (Off), features a formidable saxophone lineup which includes Gary Thomas, Chris Cheek and Logan Richardson on pieces that change up speeds and mix harmonic and free passages. At this riverside gig on August 9, Elder will duet with Richardson; while on August 16, he appears with Foldersnacks, his quintet with electric guitar and bass, drums and vocalist. GK GEORGE COLEMAN BIRDLAND / AUGUST 10-14 Tenor titan Coleman, who turned 75 this year, made his most indelible mark in jazz with the seminal Miles Davis quintet (also including Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams) heard on Seven Steps to Heaven, My Funny Valentine and Four & More. After two years with Miles, Coleman moved on with Hancock and cut Herbie's classic Maiden Voyage album. He's also performed and recorded under Max Roach, Elvin Jones and Charles Mingus. Coleman's one of a talented group who grew up together in that fertile Tennessee jazz hotbed, Memphis: Booker Little, Charles Lloyd, Hank Crawford, and the pianist who's also part of this gig, Harold Mabern. Relative youngsters John Weber and Joe Farnsworth join them on bass and drums, respectively. YE

ODWIND & BRASS MUSIC CO. EST. 1950

L I G H T Fax: 212-302-5895 - Buy - Sell - Rent - Repair - Cons. AMINA FIGUROVA DIZZY'S / AUGUST 9 Those who've discovered this Azerbaijani-born pianist-composer's music on CD - particularly 2008's Above The Clouds (Munich Records) - are full of praise for her inventive melodic lines, as well as the deftness with which she wrings a variety of intriguing harmonic textures from such a small ensemble. George Wein, obviously an admirer, has booked Amina's sextet for a main stage performance at Newport on the day preceding this Dizzy's gig. With her at both venues will be her husband Bart Platteau playing flute, as well as Marc Mommaas (tenor), Ernie Hammes (trumpet), Jeroen Vierdag (bass) and Chris Strik (percussion). Their distinctive and highly original music stands up under repeated listening. Now we look forward to hearing the group's newly released disc, Sketches, likely available at the club. PB WYNTON MARSALIS APOLLO THEATER / AUGUST 30 "Louis," a new silent film with live accompaniment by Wynton Marsalis and a 10-piece all-star jazz ensemble, along with virtuoso classical pianist Cecile Licad, will make a New York stop during a five-city tour. The ensemble, which will play a score primarily comprising Marsalis' compositions, includes Sherman Irby, Victor Goines, Marcus Printup, Ted Nash, Kurt Bacher, Vincent Gardner, Wycliffe Gordon, Dan Nimmer, Carlos Henriquez and Ali Jackson, with Andy Farber conducting. Licad will play music by 19th century American composer L.M. Gottschalk, whose piano works are considered to be forerunners of the ragtime style. "Louis," directed by Dan Pritzker, stars Anthony Coleman as the young trumpeter. YE EDDIE MONTEIRO SAINT PETER'S CHURCH / AUGUST 4 Expanding on the work of pioneering fellow New Jersey accordionist Joe Mooney, Monteiro plays a MIDI-controlled Cavichord model that allows him to access a wide range of musical sounds not normally associated with squeezeboxes. As a musician, he's kind of a back-to-the-future one-man band, yet he's anything but a showboat about it. In his hands, the vast sonic possibilities of the instrument are rendered with dignity and taste, as well as an innate and ingrained sense of swing, whether he's playing bossa nova and Latin or straight up 4/4. Over the years, Monteiro has had fruitful collaborations with singers like Nancy Marano and, recently, Roz Corral. But at this Midday Jazz gig he'll lead a trio with bassist Ike Sturm and drummer Rich DeRosa. GK ANDERS BERGCRANTZ CORNELIA STREET CAFÉ / AUGUST 13 Sure, technical facility on the horn can win any trumpeter a few glowing notices, and post-bopper Bergcrantz certainly has chops to spare. Yet it's his rhythmic drive, his deft compositional skills and his apt use of musical wit, rather than pyrotechnics, that reviewers of his latest CD release, About Time (Stunt) point to in praising his work on tracks like the infectious "Don't Stop, That's Nice," the boisterous "Cochise" and a Latinized groover called "Runeberg." The disc garnered Bergcrantz Album-of-the-Year and Musician-of-the-Year honors back home in Sweden. All the sidemen on that album were fellow Swedes. But for this Cornelia Street gig, he's recruited four outstanding American colleagues: tenor saxophonist Adam Kolker, pianist Michael Eckroth, bassist Ron McClure and drummer Victor Lewis. PB RON CARTER BLUE NOTE / AUGUST 3-8 They're known as the Golden Striker Trio as a result of their 2003 Blue Note Records release of that name. It's master bassist Ron Carter along with pianist Mulgrew Miller and guitarist Russell Malone. Prior to that recording, Carter had worked with Miller and Malone on their own projects but he hadn't worked with them as a unit. Without the presence of drums, the three stringed instruments are able to interact in a different way, anchored by Carter's bass. His inventive arrangements for the trio are, at times, so intricate that you might see members reading charts even on standard tunes. This all-star trio will likely be reprising numbers from that earlier release - perhaps "Autumn Leaves" and "Concierto de Aranjuez," as well as some well-crafted originals. YE

NEW JERSEY JAZZ By Sheila Anderson, Author/Announcer, WBGO, 88.3fm KITT MORAN SHANGHAI JAZZ / AUGUST 12 How many vocalists can boast of having been accompanied, at various times, by Burt Bacharach and Michel Legrand? This widely acclaimed singer can. Ms. Moran, who's also a songwriter and a painter, hails from the Garden State but now makes Sarasota her home base. Her interpretation of good lyric is one quality that sets her apart. In partnership with her husband of thirty years, Mike Moran, who has written and arranged much of her material, she's performed in top venues all along the Eastern Seaboard. She's recorded, too, with the likes of Don Sebesky, Teo Macero, John Pizzarelli, Ron Carter and Toots Thielemans. BRUCE WILLIAMS CECIL'S / AUGUST 3, 10 AND 31 A high-powered saxophonist, composer and educator who hails originally from Washington, D.C., Williams is perhaps still better known as a sideman than as a leader. But two of his recent recordings (Brotherhood and Altoicity, both for the Savant label) are likely to win him wider acclaim. A versatile stylist, Williams seems as comfortable playing straight-ahead material as he is with either avantgarde or hip-hop. Who's he played and recorded with over the years? For starters, consider this impressive roster: Little Jimmy Scott, Frank Foster, Cecil Brooks III, the World Saxophone Quartet, Russell Gunn, Curtis Fuller, Roy Hargrove and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. Catch Bruce leading Tuesday night jam sessions at this comfy and welcoming West Orange club. NEVILLE DICKIE BICKFORD THEATRE / AUGUST 2 Stride pianist Dickie is widely regarded as one of the world's very best. A resident of England, he's a fixture at jazz and ragtime festivals around the world. A regular performer on BBC Radio, Dickie has made hundreds of appearances as a soloist or with his trio. He's also still performing with The Rhythmakers, a group established in 1985. Moreover, he's one of just a handful of British jazz pianists ever to score a hit single: "The Robins Return" in 1969. His 1975 album Back To Boogie sold more than 100,000 copies, quite a remarkable total. He's a crowd-pleaser who's at his happiest when bringing new life to classic compositions by the likes of James P. Johnson and Fats Waller. NAT ADDERLEY, JR. TRUMPETS / AUGUST 28 Yep, he's the late trumpeter Nat's son. No stranger to the jazz life, this pianist, composer and arranger has spent much of his musical career as keyboardist and music director for singer Luther Vandross whom he'd met while both were students at LaGuardia High School of Music and Art. Born in Quincy, Florida and raised in Teaneck, NJ Adderley began playing piano at five. Six years later, his Uncle Cannonball included young Nat's song "I'm on My Way" on the 1967 classic Capitol album entitled Why Am I Treated So Bad? An African-American Studies graduate of Yale, he subsequently performed with greats Arnett Cobb and Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson. Reclaiming his familial jazz roots Adderley currently focuses on the music of the 1960s, the period when his dad and uncle were at the peak of their international success. Summer Jazz Week 2009 is funded, in part, by generous grants from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/ T H E the Composer. Department of State, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, and Meet

BUSTER WILLIAMS ALWAYS SOMETHING MORE By Ken Dryden

ASSIST BUSTER WILLIAMS HAS, B over fifty years, accompanied countless jazz greats. For the past two decades, though, he's focused as much as possible on composing and on leading his own bands. Williams grew up in a musical household. "My father, who taught me bass, was a real taskmaster and there was only one way of doing things - his way. Still, every day, I cherish his insistence on quality, his tenacity and commitment. He was my first inspiration. Then I began to listen to Oscar Pettiford. I also started to pay attention to Ray Brown, Wilbur Ware, Charles Mingus and Paul Chambers. Paul's lyrical concept was like nothing I'd ever heard. Meanwhile, Percy Heath was so wonderfully precise. Even now, it thrills me to hear any good bass player. I guess I'm influenced by all of them." After graduating from Philadelphia's Combs College of Music in 1959, Williams worked with local hero Jimmy Heath, the first of his many distinguished employers. Asked which leaders helped him as a player, he says, "It would be easier to ask who didn't! My career has moved like a flight of stairs. Every new band I joined served as a kind of stepping stone to the next one. I left home in 1961 with Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt, then had an offer from Dakota Staton." Williams also worked with Betty Carter, Sarah Vaughan, Benny Golson, Lee Morgan, Kenny Dorham, Nancy Wilson, Horace Silver, Miles Davis, Hampton Hawes and Dexter Gordon, to name just a few notables. Williams seems to have a special affinity for good pianists. "Working for a time with Mary Lou Williams was an incredible experience," he recalls. "She really seemed to admire my playing. We got along well and she encouraged me to compose more. On her My Mama Pinned a Rose on Me album, we did my song "Prism," with her playing the chords while I played the melody on the piano.

"Shirley Horn was living in D.C. back then and absolutely no one was talking about her. So Billy Hart urged [Steeplechase owner] Nils Winther to record the three of us as a trio. That LP, Lazy Afternoon, marked the beginning of Shirley's resurgence and Verve picked her up soon thereafter. I never played with anyone whose tempos were as slow as Shirley's, not even Betty Carter. I'd learned from Betty how to be patient, maintain composure and make every note count. For her part, Shirley would play the downbeat and you'd have time to go out for a sandwich and finish eating it before having to hit that second beat!" Buster particularly treasures his occasional dates with pianist Denny Zeitlin. "I love working with Denny - and Matt Wilson is the perfect drummer for him. Denny has a great career as a psychiatrist, yes, but he wants to play more. We have so much fun together. What makes that trio so great is its three exploratory minds. To my mind, the result is music that should be recorded every single time it happens." Williams took his time in becoming a leader. "When I finally decided, back in 1990, to organize a group of my own, I felt I was ready. You know, I came up during an era when people believed in apprenticeship. You didn't appear on the scene knowing everything, instantly ready to head up a group. Truthfully, I'm still an apprentice. Sharing the bandstand with people who are creating something in the moment, I'm awed, humbled and enthralled at what my fellow musicians are capable of. And I continue to learn. I'm finding it both a challenge and joy to spend part of each day writing this music. When the creative juices start to flow, all kinds of ideas come to me from everywhere. I recall my father telling me, 'There's really nothing new, just ideas new to you.' So, in my view, it's all about how you tweak something, the twist you put on it." At Iridium, Williams will premiere his new band, which he's named Spanish Sun-Flamenco Rising. The ensemble also includes flamenco guitarist Adam del Monte, saxophonist Mark Gross, pianist Eric Reed and percussionist Ignacio Berroa. "I've been pondering this project for several years," says the bassist. "It seems to me that the origins of flamenco are very similar to those for jazz, with both coming about as spontaneous cultural reactions to life circumstances and the conditions certain groups of people lived under. In the world of flamenco, folks may be sitting around eating when someone suddenly jumps up and breaks into song. The blues originated in much the same way. Both musics are intuitive, creative and improvisational. "When the management at Iridium expressed interest in this project, that spurred me into action. I found an incredibly talented Argentinean guitarist in L.A. He and I started talking. This music is something I want to document on my second artistShare project. [His first will be a presentation of Brazilian music.] Mind you, I'm not from that culture, or trying to be Spanish, I just want to blend flamenco and jazz. After all, jazz is the most expressive music of any time - and expressiveness has no limitation." Buster Williams' Spanish Sun-Flamenco Rising group will perform at the Iridium on August 6-8.

LOU DONALDSON TOEING THAT LINE By Yvonne Ervin

HE SON OF A PIANO TEACHER AND A T minister in Badin, North Carolina, alto saxophonist Lou Donaldson refused to study piano because his mother would hit her students with a switch whenever they made mistakes. Instead, he took to the clarinet at an early age and later joined the marching band at college. Then he was drafted into the Navy. "I didn't think I'd be good enough to make the Navy band because there were all these guys walking around saying they'd played with Count Basie and Duke Ellington," Donaldson recalls. "But I was walking by the band room one day and heard lots of squeaking going on. The bandmaster was giving a clarinet lesson. I walked in and said, 'That's the worst clarinet playing I've ever heard! Let me show you how to do it.' I started playing and the bandmaster said, 'That's the best clarinet audition we've ever had. Do you play saxophone too?' I'd never played the saxophone so, of course, I said 'Yes!' He gave me an alto and I went to the barracks and taught myself how to get around on it. As it turned out, not one of those guys who'd boasted they were with Count and Duke ever made it in the band." While Donaldson was stationed just north of Chicago at the Great Lakes Naval Station, along with other soon-to-be jazz greats like Clark Terry and Major Holley, he ventured into the Windy City and caught Charlie Parker for the first time. "Once I heard him, I didn't want to play the clarinet anymore! There wasn't anyone else doing what he was doing. It was something new," Donaldson remembers. After the war, Donaldson returned to school in North Carolina and earned a degree in Political Science. "Although my education really didn't help me in music, it gave me the intelligence I needed when I moved to New York in 1950 and I saw all these musicians doing drugs, I was able to adjust to the situation," he says. "I'd never even seen a junkie before that time! It was really sad." Alfred Lion heard Donaldson at Harlem's legendary Minton's Playhouse and asked him to record for Blue Note. The rhythm section led by Milt Jackson on that first Donaldson album would soon rename itself and become the Modern Jazz Quartet. Donaldson's 1952 record-

ing (released as Quartet/Quintet/Sextet) with Horace Silver, Blue Mitchell and Art Blakey, among others, is widely regarded as a seminal hard bop album. Throughout the 50s Donaldson brought several other jazz greats to their first recording sessions - among them, Silver, Clifford Brown and Grant Green. His later collaboration with Duke Pearson, entitled Lush Life, featured promising youngsters Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner and Ron Carter. The list of Donaldson's musical collaborators is a lengthy one. "I would like to have played with Fats Navarro and Art Tatum but never got to," he says. "I never got to play a gig with Hank Jones, but would have enjoyed that, too. He was a great musician, different from other guys - a real gentleman, always dressed properly. Still, I got to play with nearly everybody else connected with swing and with bebop. But the avantgarde? I've never bothered with them!" His biggest selling records were 1958's Blues Walk and, a decade later, Alligator Boogaloo. The latter, featuring Dr. Lonnie Smith and George Benson, was a top-selling album on the Billboard chart for a full year. Those recordings have always sold well, Donaldson says, and many of his other releases have recently been reissued. "The reason my recordings are so popular is when I would play for people, I would watch their reactions. When I see them going for what I'm doing, I record that. It's as simple as that: give them what they want. The real personal things I want to play, I just do on the side. But on a record, I toe the line because there's a certain point of demarcation. After you make records for a while, you understand exactly where that line is." "Today people are playing so differently, I have a hard time finding sidemen who can play what I play, which is a cross between bebop and swing. Some folks say that I play funk but I don't understand what they're talking about. James Brown is funk, but not me." It's the bluesy tinge to Donaldson's sound that evokes the adjective "funky" from some listeners. Rappers and hiphoppers have latched onto several of his riffs. "A lot of people are sampling me. That's good," he says. "I just got a nice check from Mary J. Blige and I've never even met her!" These days, he's found a trio he enjoys playing with: organist Pat Bianchi, guitarist Randy Johnston and drummer Fukushi Tainaka. Together, they did this summer's Hague Jazz Festival and will join him at Dizzy's during August. Approaching 84, Lou insists that he'll never quit. "You don't retire from this business. The older you get, the more people love you. You've got to see me to hear this kind of music, because nobody else plays like I do. There are about four others who play that cross between bebop and swing. Frank Wess is one of them. But the music youngsters are generating today? I don't understand what they're trying to say. The wonderful thing about jazz is that there's a freedom of expression you just can't find in other music. The more you play, the more you say. That's my philosophy." Lou Donaldson's group holds forth at Dizzy's on August 31 through September 5.

JAZZWOMEN! By Elzy Kolb In a silent way Music and travel inspired the compositions of pianist/composer Eri Yamamoto's new CD, In Each Day, Something Good (AUM). A 1932 silent film by revered Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu, I Was Born, But …, sparked her imagination. "A friend said I should write music for a silent movie, because my music has lot of colors," Eri says. "I always loved this Ozu movie. It's a lot like us now, with the recession. People are struggling. Ordinary people are trying to make every day happy, no matter what. The idea is the same, 80 years later. The theme is dark, but the movie has a nice sense of humor. That's what we need right now. We have to keep living and to do that we have to do to be happy." While traveling, "I meet new people, have a new audience in each new city," she says. "Everything, the food, the smell of the air, everything inspires me so much. I can write on a plane or a train." Eri cites her tune "Blue in Tunisia" as an example. "I wrote it on the way back from that country. I was fascinated by the color blue in the sea. And there were white houses with blue doors. They reminded me of 'Casablanca.' I never saw such a color contrast in my life." Though she has a notation program on her laptop, she prefers the analog method: "a pencil and an eraser. I can't write music with the computer." Eri celebrates the release of In Each Day, Something Good at the Cornelia Street Café on Aug. 1.

also happy to lend her voice whenever required. As a teen, Abigail thought acting was her destiny. "I wasn't very good at it," she says. "I was acting, acting, acting, till I got to a song. I didn't realize that I was just treading water until I could sing." She started college intending to get a criminology degree. "I'm not a science person but forensics and the justice system fascinated me," Abigail says. While still a freshman she realized she needed to switch tracks to music, but opted for a liberal arts background instead of going to a conservatory. "Locking yourself in the practice room is socially a hard lifestyle for any young adult," she says. Abigail moved to New York from her native Massachusetts seven years ago to focus on singing. "I like singing standards," she says. "I'm happy exploring great songs people have written, instead of something mediocre I wrote myself." Regardless of the composer or vintage, "It has to be something that I want to sing in this day and age. Some standards are lyrically dated. They bring up a lot of historical figures and events that were culturally relevant in the 1930s, but unfamiliar to most people now." Abigail plays the 6PM Jazz Party at Birdland on Aug. 8 and the Deer Head Inn in the Poconos on Aug. 29.

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. In 1958 Don Payne, fresh out of the Army, moved into a cottage in the Hollywood hills, where a group of local musicians often rehearsed, trying to develop their own sound. Don Cherry, the trumpet player with the group, introduced them to Ornette Coleman. One day they were working on one of Ornette's tunes. Walter Norris had worked out the harmonies, and they were playing it over and over to memorize it. Suddenly the door opened, and Payne's next door neighbor walked in. After nodding hello, he took a sheet of music paper and quickly wrote down the tune they had been playing, and added an improvement to the chords at the end of the bridge. He reached over Walter's shoulder and put the music in front of him on the piano, bowed and smiled to the other musicians, and went back out the door. Walter played what he had written and said, "This works!" He turned around and asked, "Who was that?" Don said, "That's my neighbor, Johnny Mandel!"
