ORNETTE

From my way of thinking,
A true artist never endeavors to
Be “original” or go out of their way to be different

Expression comes from natural sources,
Yes, of course, one is acculturated within one’s world
And that is part of who you are, definitely
And organically, no escaping that

Anything else would be
Bending toward marketing strategies
And sales, and embracing novelty just to be
Different —— Being yourself is the trick,
It comes easy for some and for others
It involves peeling back
The layers of the onion

We’ll be visiting with trumpeter/cornetist, improvisor, composer,
Scholar and jazz thinker Bobby Bradford today to talk about
Originality and Ornette’s vision

Legendary Los Angeles poet & jazz nut Michael C Ford visiting us in Salt Lake City, Utah ---- photo by Mark Weber – May 24, 1990 (we lived in Salt Lake two years while Janet did a residency at the V.A. Hospital, before we moved down here to Burque summer of 1991) ---- Michael insists that valve actually changes the sound on this plumbing trumpet ---- His telephone back then said: “Okay, I know, I know,” sounding like he just woke up, “It’s an answering device okay? After the beep, leave me a message, you know the routine, you drop it, and I’ll pick it up, okay, bye” ---------- Another time, I was walking along with Michael C Ford, with Joan & Fred, and I think Marilyn, we were on the palisades of Long Beach near the pier and the fishermen had their day’s catch out on tables for sale, and one table had seven little fish all lined up in a row, and I said, Hey, look! And Michael not missing a beat said, “Yeh, the Lighthouse All-Stars”

Janet Feder in Denver ---- photo by Mark Weber – October 29, 2o16 ---- A supremely talented and gifted and transcendent guitarist (see her website) --- She will be performing in Corrales (an outlier village of Albuquerque) Sunday August 4 @ 7pm at Live At Thrive, 4685 Corrales Road ---- She plays all kinds of guitars, one of the ones that has always fascinated me is when she “prepares” the guitar which is hard to describe, you’d best see to see ------- Here’s a story: (this is genius) Janet is trained as a classical guitarist although she struck out in other directions, but I was curious how she would play Bach and after quite some nudging on my part she relented, but not quite! She took the strings off her guitar and put them back in random order and tuned them to their conventional tonality, so, the guitar was no long EADGBE, I don’t know WHAT it was, THEN she put the Bach sheet music in front of her and played it by sight as if the strings were in the right order (I wonder if she put on ear mufflers, so as not to be confused?) and you can hear this on the compilation ALBUZERXQUE Vol. 13 as “Wrong Strung Prelude”

    hi mark – can’t find your email – ill be in ABQ briefly in about 10 days… maybe we can connect

  3. Here I am, enjoying as always the travelogues of your photos and descriptions, and so surprised to find that I’ve made your pages. Thank you Mark for the kind words, the funny story, the photo at my sister’s kitchen table that looks like it came at the end of a long day – which I love for the reflection of you in the window! Looking forward to playing and seeing you and Janet again soon in Corrales. love j.

  4. Whenever I see the Hollywood Bowl, I cringe at all of the horrors and humiliations I witnessed there. I could write a book on all of the bullshit musicians suffered there over the decades, and I mean stories I heard from the 1940s, to outrageous crap I witnessed working there. but I’ll let sleeping dogs lie for now.

  5. Seeing the Ornette photo in 1982 reminds me five years later, when our group Thelonious opened for Prime Time in LA at the Palace Theatre. During the soundcheck one of the bass players turned up to 10 and blew his amp. That was the loudest electric weaponized garbage I ever heard. But it wasn’t that much louder than the band sounded live in the hall. After that amp blew, everyone stopped playing. It was like silence after a gunfight. Everyone’s ears were ringing, and then Buell yelled out, at the top of voice to the electric bass player: “You blew it, motherfucker, you blew it!!!!” We were so pissed off at that band that we played our asses off.

  6. Thanks for your ever wonderful posts Mark! Bobby Bradford forever! Polka dots and Ornette beams. Bobby Shew, outstanding in his field…..of tenors!

    Mark _ _ just keep doin’ these things they edify me . Particularly the piece on Richie Kamuca’s tenor sax . The first
    time I went to the Lighthouse , circa 1963, some dude walked in w/ his (s)ax in a gig bag that looked my guitar bag –
    he then sat down right next to me waiting for his cue to come up and blow. And it was Richie himself . Terrific player
    and, sadly, practically forgotten by today’s jazz fans .

  8. Greg————Shew has Friday afternoon sessions at his studio and I get to be a fly on the wall as he pulls from his massive collection of band books & arrangements, amazing stuff, and these New Mexico hotshots read that stuff down! (I guess you could call it a read-through)(Alex Murzyn, tenor&flute; Cal Haines, drums; Micky Patten, bass; Jim Ahrend or Pat Rhoads or Bob Lah, piano)—-Shew only pulled out the tenor at my request, he wasn’t playing it with the crew, altho, he says he might someday! (he sticks to his Yamaha trumpets & flugels)————————-Marty K: I didn’t know Hollywood Bowl was such a drag, I’ve always had a good time there——————Mr Bridwell: WHAT a great story! By the time I got hip to Kamuca, having fell in love with his album QUARTET 1976 Lp on a small label JAZZZ, he was gone! Cancer took him very quick according to Shew, so, I don’t think I ever caught him (maybe in a big band once or twice)———–Janet Feder! It’s been just shy of 3 years since we last saw each other, why the long spaces?———————–AND Leslie Westbrook, coincidentally, just the other day I scored a Si Zentner album with your dad playing on it (piano)! And soon as I locate your email connection I’ll write and yes it will be good to see you in New Mexico

  9. I remember Ornette’s electric band was a hard sell to a lot of us ———– When the first album of that nature came out in 1976 — DANCING IN YOUR HEAD —- I was over at Freddy Katz’s in Fullerton and I asked him what he thought of the record, and that I was not really getting it, and he said, “Mark, you have to reserve judgement sometimes” — a very wise man, I have never forgot that

  10. Wow! This is wonderful. Mark, you have all the stories, and they matter. I’m so glad you’re here to tell them.

  11. Your knowledge and photographs are beyond belief, you are a much needed writer, photographer and historian. DO NOT STOP!!!! The world needs you…
