Most Valued Player: Art Pepper

Most Valued Player: Art Pepper
by Nic Jones

The seminal figures in jazz have always inspired dedicated followers, musicians for whom an individual's playing has been the first and last word on the subject. Charlie Parker, wildly unbalanced as an individual yet also the seminal figure in the music after Louis Armstrong, inspired a legion of alto sax players all of whom were enthralled by some aspect of his musicianship. In his time the number of alto players who were not influenced by him could be counted on the fingers of one hand. Art Pepper was one of them.

Cindy Blackman

Spring 2001—The drummer Cindy Blackman has been on the scene for many years, at least since the early Eighties with Sam Rivers and, later, Wallace Roney, and I was pleasantly surprised to see her one evening a few years back when I was working lights at the Aragon Ballroom and she was backing the guitarist Lenny Kravitz, kicking much harder and funkier than Sheila E. had playing behind Prince. On record, I recalled her playing on Roney's The Standard Bearer with Gary Thomas, Mulgrew Miller, and bassist Charnett Moffett.

My Boys Don’t Drink or Smoke!

My Boys Don’t Drink or Smoke!
A Musical Episode in The Apple
by Joe Levinson

In a recent story I wrote about the late trombonist Dick Rath in New York City, I mentioned Whitey Mitchell, a fine bass player and brother of Red Mitchell. He often played at Nick’s in the Village, a famous (now, sadly, long-gone) restaurant-jazz club that featured traditional and swing bands.

About Jack Noren

This is a response to Kathy Noren's letter in the Letters section
Kathy, my name is Joe Levinson and I am a bass player in Chicago. I saw your letter and your request for stories or information about Jack Noren. Well, I can certainly tell you two remembrances that I have about Jack.

Paulinho Garcia and Greg Fishman: Two for Noel

Paulinho Garcia and Greg Fishman: Two for Noel

Following their CD Two for Brazil, Paulinho and Greg tackle the holiday repertoire with great class and style—set against the bossa nova and samba. Paulinho's guitar is the complete rhythm section and he sings our favorite seasonal tunes in English, except for the traditional Brazilian Boas Festas (Happy Holidays) in Portuguese. Greg is the consummate soloist; a perfect fit with Paulinho on both his tenor sax and flute. Together they are one of Chicago's musical treasures.
