The Life and Legacy of Tadley Ewing Dameron

The Life and Legacy of Tadley Ewing Dameron

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.

Golden Rules for Ensemble Playing

Golden Rules for Ensemble Playing
Unknown author
The following was forwarded to us from bandleader Bill O'Connell. For those of you who haven't seen it yet, we reproduce it here.

1. Everyone should play the same piece.
2. Stop at every repeat sign and discuss in detail whether to take the repeat or not. The audience will love it.
3. If you play a wrong note give a nasty look to one of your partners.
4. Keep your fingering chart handy. You can always catch up to the others.

Damon Short: Go Figure

Damon Short: Go Figure

It took almost 6 years to Damon Short to get this recording out. In itself, this is a tribute to the drummer’s persistence and unabated will to present his music even if commercial success and proper recognition have been eluding him—even in Chicago.

Despite Short’s uncompromising resolve, Go Figure remains relatively accessible. Of course, it will take time to truly appreciate the wealth of the compositions, which strike a balance between tuneful ensemble playing and unbridled soloing.

Jon Menges: Changes Within

Jon Menges: Changes Within

Jazz has certainly always been about change and on his first CD as a leader, Jon Menges seems to celebrate the concept on a variety of levels. Considering the contrast of the two standards within this collection of mostly original tunes, this collection could easily be about transitional change. But if we consider the alternating palette of bright and dark tones between guitar and trumpet, soprano and flugelhorn to be found here in abundance, we might well be dealing with a different kind of change.
