ANOTHER TIME & PLACE

 

It occurred to me
only this morning
what a major shift in consciousness
it was for humankind to switch
to experiencing music mostly from recordings

Only one hundred years ago
—– music boxes?
Even those have their organic reality

You know things are changing
when you attend a sitar concert
and they’re using one of those electronic
drone boxes rather than a tanpura

Lewis Winn(guitar) and Jon Gagan(bass) at old Outpost

In days gone by these two had a very active duet thing going on, now they live two cities apart, a tale of two cities: Santa Fe and Albuquerque — Lewis Winn(guitar) and Jon Gagan(bass) at old Outpost — June 16, 1997 — photo by Mark Weber —- Jon will be bringing a group into the new Outpost this coming December 7 that includes a quintet of Santa Fe hotshots (Pat Malone on guitar!)

Kitty & Dick Trask, dearly departed

Kitty & Dick Trask, dearly departed —- Dick grew up in NYC and was a denizen of 52nd Street in the good old days, they moved here to Albuquerque in the 60s with the aerospace industry, which was Dick’s bread & butter — He had the absolute genius of playing his alto saxophone with complete abandon & joy —- photo by Mark Weber — August 25, 2000

Joe Maneri Trio w/ his son Matt (electric 6-string violin) and Randy Peterson(drumset) at Biblios Bookstore, 317 Church Street

Joe Maneri Trio w/ his son Matt (electric 6-string violin) and Randy Peterson(drumset) at Biblios Bookstore, 317 Church Street, way down yonder in SoHo — June 28, 1997 — such interesting music, the maestro of microtones visiting NYC from Boston —– It was a very warm summer evening and I remember getting lost afterwards as the subway stations down there close after-hours, and I wandered around for more than an hour looking for a subway station to make it back up to Upper West Side where I was staying at Janet’s sisters digs — photo by Mark Weber — It’s dark in SoHo that time of night, very eerie, (I have a variety of spatial dyslexia where I can’t tell north from south — Max Roach had it, too —- A few days later I got to talking with an psychic who told me that it’s something in the rocks under southern Manhattan that was screwing up my sense of direction —- It seriously effects me, especially in that locale)

We're standing outside the old Outpost on Morningside

People of a certain age will know the legendary Lanny MacDonald, pianist, singer, raconteur, and lounge act (cruise ships, etc), and poet Todd Moore — We’re standing outside the old Outpost on Morningside, that colorfully painting building behind them on Central (aka Rt.66) is an antique shop Cowboys & Indians where Todd worked for about a year, funny gig for Todd, but he needed to get his Social Security together and needed a few more points, so he worked that out selling old western collectibles —– Lanny had just regaled us with his story of the time in Chicago that Charlie Parker had wrangled ten bucks out of him — photo by Mark Weber — September 10, 1999 Albuquerque

Roberto Miranda, Horace Tapscott, Frank Morgan

Roberto Miranda, Horace Tapscott, Frank Morgan — upstairs at old Outpost Performance Space where Roberto & Horace were in town for a concert of duets —- Frank lived in Placitas at the time and came by for a visit —- February 14, 1998 — photo by Mark Weber —– Earlier in the day after Horace had tried out the Steinway I asked how he liked that piano, and he said, “Yeh. I like it. Wood,” in that elliptical way he spoke those years (as he got older he seemed to get more verbose).

Sarah Cahill solo piano music of Ruth Crawford Seeger, from San Francisco

Sarah Cahill solo piano music of Ruth Crawford Seeger, from San Francisco, brought to town under the auspices of Steve Peters/Nonsequitir, and what a revelation to hear this deeply quiet music, I’ve been a devotee ever since, Ruth also composed some fantastic chamber pieces, as well, for years I’ve been playing her arrangements in the Lomax BEST LOVED AMERICAN FOLKS SONGS (1947) not knowing there was this deep well behind all that —- (I’ve often wondered if Sarah is related to that turkey Police Chief Cahill who menaced the Haight Ashbury community in the 60s?) Then again, there’s other Cahill’s, like the historian Thomas Cahill who’s books I can recommend, like SAILING THE WINE DARK SEA about ancient Greeks, and the one where Irish monks save civilization —- Photo by Mark Weber at old Outpost, Albuquerque, October 17, 1998 —- When the late Mike Seeger played the Outpost a few years ago I told him how much his mother’s music means to me.

Dexter -- December 23, 1976 at The Lighthouse, Hermosa Beach

Dexter was a lot of fun these years of his “return” to the U.S. (1976), it was celebratory, dramatic, heroic, his music was deep and his solos long and circular —- Long solos being a thing back then, almost avant-garde and dare I say: not always cohesive, wandering from one thing to another, sometimes they seemed like a bebop science lesson, but we loved it, again, it was the times —- (I actually saved a roach I smoked with Dexter that is now in my UCLA archive, haha — don’t tell the police) —- During applause he’d offer his saxophone to the audience —- I’m so glad for the many live concerts being made available from those years when he was on the road with his quartet, they are valuable documents —- Still, it’s the studio album MANHATTAN SYMPHONIE (1978) produced by Michael Cuscuna that is his masterpiece of those years, it is a direct hit, more contained, a pure distillation of the Dexter concert experience —- Dexter had family in L.A., so we had a lot of opportunities to catch him, George Cables was central, but we also caught Dolo Coker (pre-George) and Kirk Lightsey (post-George) —- Another of my favorite Dexter albums is the one he made just before his “comeback” and that was with arranger/conductor/trumpeter Palle Mikkelborg MORE THAN YOU KNOW (1975 on Steeplechase in Copenhagen) —- Notwithstanding his 1940s recordings that Bobby Bradford asserts were very important in the early bop days —- photo by Mark Weber — December 23, 1976 at The Lighthouse, Hermosa Beach

Zuni dancers -- photo by Mark Weber

These kids were so sweet, after they had performed their dance, I happened to be walking behind the stage area in the Indian Village section of New Mexico State Fair, when they asked me to take their picture — after all that preparation and the very involved dance they wanted their picture —- They had been introduced as Jemez Pueblo dancers but they explained to me that they are actually from Zuni and that their neighbors at Jemez were having ceremonies this week and couldn’t be at the Fair, so the Zuni dancers agreed to dance the Jemez version of the Buffalo Dance for them — September 11, 2017 — photo by Mark Weber

  1. Every so often it need be re-minded that Jazz For Mostly is a combined effort —- “effort” not exactly being the right word —- The writing is mine, and the photographs: I’m the content schlub —- Cal Haines is the artist who grooms the photos > Reduces the photos from 2400 dpi to 72 dpi and sizing the frames to 758 pixels wide, elsewise these JFM pages would crash your computer for being too huge; also, Cal is a master of PhotoShop; for the most part I select the photos but many is the time I’ll ask Cal to look at Frames 2208-2217 and choose which Dexter best for our purposes; Cal also employs color restoration where some of the older images have drifted, see the lunch table tableaux above; Then, Cal, from his studio in Santa Fe, sends all this, along with the captions/legends to Klaus in Saint-Nazaire on the coast of France and Klaus sequences the page organizing it visually —- The beauty of this system is that Klaus, a graphic artist himself, sees all this cold, this jumble of content, which puts him in a position to see it all objectively, of which, by the time all the writing is done and the photos concurred, over the course of several days, we on this end are no longer objective —- Klaus assembles the whole pile how he best sees the reader to experience it —- You couldn’t work with two more better people.

    THE JAZZ EXPERIENCE w/ Arlen Asher
    9 – Noon
    guest Mark Weber
    TIMELESS DUKE ELLINGTON

    * After Arlen settled on the idea that we do a Duke show I started working through the archive and also called 3 jazz scholars for suggestions: clarinetist Bill Payne, jazz host John Breckow, and cornetist Bobby Bradford

    First Hour
    1. “Take the A Train” –30june52 from album ELLINGTON UPTOWN (Columbia)  *John Breckow said “. . . after the rebirth at Newport (1956) and the following mass of Columbia recordings beginning with the extended “A Train” with Betty Roche and Paul Gonsalves’ probing solo, not to mention Duke’s extended piano intro . . .”
    2.  “Don Juan” Duke in trio piano bass drums w/John Lamb & Sam Woodyard — 18july1966 album THE PIANIST (Fantasy) when this album came out in the early 70s I must have played it for a year straight
    3. “I Can’t Get Started”  piano trio — March 1961 cd PIANO IN FOREGROUND (Col.) w/ Aaron Bell (bass) & Sam Woodyard(drums) * Bunny Berrigan made the first version of this song in 1936 and since then 1,103 versions listed at Tom Lord Jazz Discography
    4. The Washingtonians “Limehouse Blues” — 17june31 ———almost 800 versions of this listed at TLD — Johnny Hodges(alto) joined the band in 1929 — Otto Hardwick (alto) was away from the band for a year and is not on this date — Otto came from DC with the Washingtonians and stayed with Duke off & on till 1946
    5. “East St Louis Toodle-OO” –22march1927  *Arlen explained that this was the Duke Ellington Orchestra theme song for years until 1941 when Strayhorn’s “A Train” took over
    6. “Duke’s Place” 1961 —- besides the movie PARIS BLUES, this is the only recording session Duke & Mr Strong ever got together on  (because of such busy schedules) and this music is in my top ten favorite records,  currently marketed in a double-cd THE GREAT SUMMIT (Roulette)
    7. “Slow Blues” trio from THE PIANIST — fade to news

    Second Hour
    1. “Minnie the Moocher” –4jan63 cd RECOLLECTIONS OF THE BIG BAND ERA (Atlantic)
    2. “In a Jam” — 1june46 — Tricky Sam solos on trombone, and Al Sears on tenor, and Cat Anderson takes it out ——from TREASURY SHOWS Vol. 20
    3.  from the same cd “Honeysuckle Rose” Jimmy Hamilton clarinet feature –8june46
    4.  Nutcracker Suite “Peanut Brittle Brigade (March)” Jimmy Hamilton clarinet feature—21june60
    5. “Hot & Bothered” —1oct28  *Bill Payne says in his younger days he listened to this song over & over, “Barney Bigard’s clarinet solo — over the top — knocked me out”  +  “also, I hope you have time for Isfahan, that’s unbelievable”  
    6.  from AFRO-EURASIAN ECLIPSE  “Chinoiserie”  *It was Bobby Bradford who said in response to my
    question: What do we think about when we think about Duke Ellington >  “Timeless”  and then added “I hope you’re going to play something from AFRO-EURASIAN ECLIPSE (Fantasy) –17feb71——– terrific —— the way he mixes the clarinets and saxophones  —- the tone colors  —- the album features a lot of tenor from Harold Ashby”

    Third Hour
    1. “It Don’t Mean a Thing if it Ain’t Got that Swing”  w/ Ella –26july66 live at Antibes Jazz Festival, France — cd compilation DUKE ELLINGTON & FRIENDS (Verve) which didn’t list who the male vocalist was that was trading with Ella, so we speculated that it could be Cootie Williams, BUT Tom Lord has it that Ray Nance was singing AND that the date was July 29
    2. “Chelsea Bridge” featuring Gonsalves strongly suggested by Bradford — January 1965 Paris, reorchestrated by the composer Billy Strayhorn  ————Bobby said this track was used as background very effective to footage of Strayhorn walking across tarmac with a satchel of music and his coat heading to yet another flight on Ken Burns JAZZ documentary
    3. “Reminiscin’ in Tempo” 4-part suite by Duke written for his mother, who had recently passed —-9dec35
    4. Duke & Louis, again —– 1961 — “Cottontail”  with Louis ending a long string of scatting by hollaring “Get away Duke, get away!”  — THE GREAT SUMMIT ibid.
    5. Dizzy Gillespie & Clare Fischer’s version of “Caravan” Juan Tizol’s 1936 masterpiece — 1960 — album A PORTRAIT OF DUKE ELLINGTON
    6.  “El Gato” — 1958 Newport Festival — featuring Shorty Baker & Ray Nance, trumpets  —-John Breckow the KUNM Friday afternoon jazz host suggested this
    7.  ruminative piano trio “A Hundred Dreams Ago” — 1961 — cd PIANO IN FOREGROUND —– Duke always became introspective when he was alone with a piano . . . .
