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.

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.

The Life and Legacy of Tadley Ewing Dameron

TADD:
The Life and Legacy of Tadley Ewing Dameron
By Ian MacDonald
Jahbero, 133 pp.
$30 (US, available from Cadence, Redwood, New York), £19.50 (UK)
Reviewed by Don Rose

Tadd Dameron, born in 1917, seamlessly bridged the crucial musical years from swing to bebop. He wrote and arranged for late-1930s bands such as Lucky Millender, Andy Kirk and Vido Musso before he was 20, jammed with his fellow musical "outlaw" Charlie Parker in Kansas City in 1939 and went on to become an indispensable—though undersung—part of the modern music scene of the '40s through the early '60s.
