1969 All-Star White House Tribute to Duke Ellington

1969 All-star White House tribute to Duke Ellington
Blue Note, 7243 35249 2 0.
By Terry Ripmaster

Some readers know I’ve been working on Willis Conover’s biography for four years. There came a time last year when Conover’s Voice of America jazz programs, 37,000 of them, arrived at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland. I was thrilled and as they were unpacked and shelved, my eyes were popping out.

Elvin Jones at Yoshi's, April 2003
reviewed by Rahsaan Clark Morris

Elvin Jones brought his Jazz Machine to Yoshi’s in Oakland for six nights of shows starting Tuesday, April 15. I figured as long as I was there to catch some of the SF Jazz Spring Season, I might as well avail myself of a chance to hear a band whose music I hadn’t heard in a long time.

School Days: Crossing Division

School Days: Crossing Division

Taking its name from a famous record by the Steve Lacy/Roswell Rudd Quartet from the early sixties, School Days is one of reedist Ken Vandermark's latest projects. "Crossing Division" is remarkable on several counts.

The session features originals penned by Vandermark and long-time collaborator Jeb Bishop (tb) as well as two compositions by Roswell Rudd, including the truculent and swinging "Keep Your Heart Right". However, a great sense of unity and cohesion transpires. Moreover, the material is quite memorable.

Von Freeman: Live at the Dakota

Von Freeman: Live at the Dakota

Given the legend status Von freeman has acquired—in Chicago, at least—a quick look at his discography shows how poorly the great tenor's career has been documented. In this regard, "Live at the Dakota" is a significant recording because it does him justice and is fully representative of his playing.

Cecile Savage: Petite Fleur

Cecile Savage: Petite Fleur

Cecile Savage, from the French Island of Martinique, is known for her acoustic bass also sings well in both French and English. This CD, made possible by the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and the Illinois Arts Council, is a beautiful work in progress. The music here reflects the long love affair between the French and jazz, with classic tunes Petite Fleur, Autumn Leaves (with the rarely heard verse) and My Man. This is a unique CD and Cecile should be heard, no one else is doing this in Chicago and there is always a place for good music!
