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.

This essay is a response to NEA survey finds jazz musicians are well educated but underpaid and lacking benefits

I read the NEA report, "Changing the Beat" with a feeling of anger, hostility and sadness. Jazz musicians are fundamentally selfish persons who play the music they want to play for people who think they’re hip but really don’t understand what’s being played.

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.
