Extractions: Pianist and composer Fred Hersch has earned a place among the foremost jazz artists in the world today. He is widely recognized for his ability to reinvent the standard jazz repertoire - investing time - tested classics with keen insight, fresh ideas and extraordinary technique - while steadfastly creating his own unique body of works. Described by The New Yorker as "a poet of a pianist" and The New York Times as "a master who plays it his way," Hersch's accomplishments include a 2003 Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship for composition and two Grammy nominations for Best Jazz Instrumental Performance. He has recorded more than 20 albums as a solo artist or bandleader, co-led another 20 sessions and appeared as a sideman or featured soloist on some 80 further recordings. A player who always seeks out new challenges, Hersch's output spans a wide variety of musical settings. "I'm always happiest when I'm doing many different things," Hersch explains. "I love to collaborate. And I live in New York, where the incredible wealth of talent makes it relatively easy to have ongoing special projects."

Extractions: Available Programs Wilde's World The Pianist Speaks Eastern Roots: Western Music From the Street: Leos Janacek ... Amercian Rites Repertoire Concerti Solo Repertoire "Wilde's World" Celebrates turn of the nineteenth century piano music with a contemporary twist: featuring Frederic Rzewski's De Profundis for speaking pianist, a provocative music theater piece that re-works the original text of Oscar Wilde. This compositional tour-de-force makes unheard of demands on the concert pianist: singing, whistling, crying, hitting and scratching. Here it lies, amongst music that filled the air in and around Wilde's era. The first half begins with rather overheated, decadent and fey English palm court melodies, floats into French precision and clarity and ends relishing romantic Russian decadence. Cyril Scott Lotus Land and Pierrot Triste ( program length 70 minutes ) "...last Saturday the All-Stars' sensational and sensitive pianist Lisa Moore offered the Janacek Sonata; etudes by Ligeti; Rzewski's ''Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues''; Martin Bresnick's ''The Dream of the Lost Traveller''; and ''Wed,'' by one of Bang on a Can's cofounders, composer David Lang, a lovely, quiet, shimmering piece that is part lullaby, part requiem. Moore herself wore Levis accented by gold lame pumps..." Richard Dyer, Boston Globe

Extractions: Jim Ferguson Bassist/Vocalist I was born James Warner Ferguson in Jefferson City, Missouri on December 10, 1950, the third child of James Austin and Fern Webb Ferguson. My father had been a high-school music teacher for much of the previous two decades, but by the time I was born, he had gone into church music. Before my second birthday, my family moved to South Carolina, where Dad took a music position in a large metropolitan church. I began singing in the childrens' choir when I was four years old. (Since Dad was in charge of the music program, I didn't miss many rehearsals.) When I got a little older, my parents started me on piano lessons with the church organist, but even though I continued the piano lessons into my teens, I was always more interested in singing. In my junior year of high school, I began studying voice with a teacher at the University of South Carolina. Then, during my senior year, I bought a string bass. The impetus for that purchase was the score of a youth musical being performed at church. It called for a bass in the rhythm section, and though Dad had never wanted me in popular music because of the stereotyped "performer's lifestyle," he let me play for the youth choir. I continued my voice study at Carolina, and after I graduated from high school, I entered the School of Music with a major in voice. It wasn't until after my freshman year that I started my first formal bass lessons.

Besides Hopkins' theme, "I Believe You", the titles recorded were "Out To Lunch", "What's The Matter With Me?", "A Little Rain Must Fall", "The Singing Hills", and "Yacht Club Swing". The personnel of Hopkins' band, at recording, was: Albert Snaer, Russell Jones, Herman Autrey, trumpets; Ray Hogan, Norman Green, Bernard Asdier, trombones; Howard Johnson, Norman Thornton, Bobby Sands, Benny Waters, saxes; Hopkins, piano; Walter Jones, guitar; Elmer James, bass; Walter Johnson, drums. Vocals were sung by Orlando Bobison. Chicago, March 5. Baby Dodds' band still sounds good out at the 9750 Club. Johnny Dodds plays on Saturday nights only, as his, health forbids more. His teeth have been fixed and he sounds as good as ever, sometimes even better. The band finishes at the 9750 on March 18th and there is no booking in sight. Manager of the 9750 says they just can't afford a band, which is very true. He is trying to get Baby booked elsewhere, but with no success as yet. I heard Benny Goodman record on Friday, before the band went on vacation. Benny recorded an out standing Bud Johnson number, and a Fletcher Henderson arrangement of "I'm Coming Virginia", which "Smack" says is the best arrangement he's ever made. The band played good stuff, but certainly stylized. I missed Charlie Christian; but John Hammond says he should be back in a couple of months. Incidentally Bud Johnson recorded with Lionel Hampton the day before.

The soprano sax soloist was wined and dined by the newly organized Philadelphia Hot Club Wednesday evening, and later appeared on "Jazz Hot", the club's bi-weekly radio program on local station WHAT. Before a studio audience of over 100 hot club members John Peck, Chairman, called an official meeting, at which Bechet was formally elected Honorary President. Following the broadcast a marvelous session was held at a private club, at which "Pops" exhausted the musicians accompanying him. Friday night Bechet fronted an uninspired, disappointing colored band at Temple University's Tyler Art School. Joe Greenberg, art instructor and Hot Club band pianist, took over the bench at Sidneys request for a fine 30-minute session. Bechet may be playing at Nick's in New York City very soon.

Extractions: Pony Poindexter was a fantastic reed player from New Orleans who made his name in the San Francisco scene of the 50's and 60's. He said: ...I started playing in North Beach in the 50's. Leo Wright had the job first, he was working at the Jazz Cellar, or just the Cellar we called it. Dizzy Gillespie came to town and decided he would take Leo so when Leo left I got the job at the Cellar ...". companying David Meltzer (a funny, intelligent, mystical, often ellipti- cal jazz-based poet who can do a mean Yiddish accent), who read his poetry there (working with Leo Wright also). Harry Partch, the compo- ser who built his own instruments with names like "Cloud Chamber Bowls" and "Surrogate Kithara," had a houseboat in Sausalito that was a gathering place for students of composition. There was a series of new-music concerts called Vortex at the Planetarium, the Cellar host- ed an exhibit of Joan Brown's paintings, accompanied by the jazz of Brew Moore and Pony Poindexter, and students from the School of Fine Arts were congregating at The Place for "Dada Night." One of the first bop-oriented jazz musicians to start doubling on sopra- no, Pony Poindexter should have been much better known during his lifetime. As with many saxophonists, clarinet was his first instrument before switching to alto and tenor. Poindexter worked very early on with SIDNEY DESVIGNE in New Orleans (1940) and later attended the Candell Conservatory of Music in Oakland.

Reviews Of Joan Tower Concertos joseph Silverstein and Max BragadoDarman conducting The Louisville Orchestra In a placid point in the Piano Concerto, pianist Ursula Oppens toys with http://www.dnote.com/jtreview.htm
Extractions: On the basis of her well-exposed orchestral works such as Sequoia and Silver Ladders (both products of the early 80s, she had seemed to be primarily a concocter of a species of lushly scored, hedonistically picturesque, but somewhat emotionally shallow soundscapes couched in a generically post-stravinskian, quasi-minimalist style. But these four highly concentrated one-movement concertos-written over a six-year span from 1985 and 1991-show Tower to have moved naturally into a much more structurally rigorous and texturally lean dimension-"lean and mean" might be a more apt description , as these are far from complacent works: they are tensile, pithy, full of vim and vinegar.
