Father Norman J. O'Connor, the "Jazz Priest"

In the past month we lost a Father and a King.

The material below is drawn from the websites of The Boston Globe (BG), The LA Times (LA), and the Associated Press (AP), enhanced by my own fond memories of this most talented and human scholar-father during occasions in Storyville in Boston, Newport, and elsewhere in New England.-Susan Markle

In New England in the '50s and New York in the '60s, a familiar figure on the scene, on the airwaves, in the jazz press, and at jazz events was Father Norman J. O'Connor, the "jazz priest," who died June 29, 2003.

A Conversation with Chicago's own Bob Centano and Bob Ojeda

A conversation with Chicago's own
Bob Centano and Bob Ojeda
by Charles Walton

I was recently invited to a card game where I was surprised to meet the legendary bandleader and saxophonist Bob Centano. After a couple of conversations with Bob and after hearing his band, I thought others might be delighted to learn about him, too. On the day of scheduled interview, he called to say that Bob Ojeda, composer/arranger/trumpet player with the Count Basie band, was in town and suggested that I might also be interested in what he had to say. Thus, here is a conversation with the two Bobs.

Why can't they get it right?

Why can't they get it right?
By Don Rose

The music world was saddened by the recent death of composer-arranger Ralph Burns, whose remarkable career led him from Woody Herman's two great Herds of the mid-'40s and early '50s, all the way to major successes in Hollywood and on Broadway, where he won a Tony Award for "Fosse."

The Chicago Jazz scene has always been a rich and flavorful one with wonderful musicians and bands of every stylistic description. This has been made possible by the many venues—from nightclubs to dance halls—that have used jazz music as for entertainment. From bands that feature very early traditional-classic style jazz to very contemporary jazz modes, all seem to find venues in which to strut their stuff.
