    John Coltrane - Resolution

    7:20

    A Love Supreme (1964)

    1. Acknowledgement
    2. Resolution
    3. Pursuance
    4. Psalm

    John Coltrane, tenor saxophone
    McCoy Tyner, piano
    Jimmy Garrison, bass
    Elvin Jones, drums

    Easily one of the most important records ever made, John Coltrane's A Love Supreme was his pinnacle studio outing that at once compiled all of his innovations from his past, spoke of his current deep spirituality, and also gave a glimpse into the next two and a half years (sadly, those would be his last). Recorded at the end of 1964, Trane's classic quartet of Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, and Jimmy Garrison stepped into the studio and created one of the most thought-provoking, concise, and technically pleasing albums of their bountiful relationship (not to mention his best-selling to date). From the undulatory (and classic) bassline at the intro to the last breathy notes, Trane is at the peak of his logical yet emotionally varied soloing while the rest of the group is remarkably in tune with Coltrane's spiritual vibe. Composed of four parts, each has a thematic progression leading to an understanding of spirituality through meditation. From the beginning, Acknowledgement is the awakening of sorts that trails off to the famous chanting of the theme at the end, which yields to the second act, Resolution, an amazingly beautiful piece about the fury of dedication to a new path of understanding. Persuance is a search for that understanding, and Psalm is the enlightenment. Although he is at times aggressive and atonal, this isn't Trane at his most adventurous (pretty much everything recorded from here on out progressively becomes much more free, and live recordings from this period are extremely spirited), but it certainly is his best attempt at the realization of concept — as the spiritual journey is made amazingly clear. A Love Supreme clocks in at just over 30 minutes, but if it had been any longer it could have turned into a laborious listen. As it stands, just enough is conveyed. It is almost impossible to imagine a world without A Love Supreme having been made, and it is equally impossible to imagine any jazz collection without it. [allmusic.com]

    But God bless the child that's got his own
    That's got his own

    Yes, the strong gets more
    While the weak ones fade
    Empty pockets don't ever make the grade
    Mama may have, Papa may have
    But God bless the child that's got his own
    That's got his own

    Money, you've got lots of friends
    Crowding round the door
    When you're gone, spending ends
    They don't come no more
    Rich relations give
    Crust of bread and such
    You can help yourself
    But don't take too much
    Mama may have, Papa may have
    But God bless the child that's got his own
    That's got his own

    Mama may have, Papa may have
    But God bless the child that's got his own
    That's got his own
    He just worry 'bout nothin'

    Theme from Exodus - Eddie Harris

    7:00

    Theme from Exodus by Ernie Gold, played by Eddie Harris from his first solo record Exodus to Jazz. According to Wikipedia, this is the first Jazz record ever certified gold! This record was recorded in 1962 at Bill Putnam's Universal Recording, in Chicago. (Bill later formed UREI from Universal Audio.) It never ceases to amaze me how good these records sound. When I was a young mastering engineer (at Eva-tone, another company formed in Evanston, Ill) my supervisor was Jerry DeClerk; Jerry was an engineer for these sessions and remembered working on this album...

    Duke Ellington - It dont mean a thing

    2:46

    Duke Ellington and his orchestra playing this awesome tune in 1943.

    It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing) is a 1931 composition by Duke Ellington with lyrics by Irving Mills, now accepted as a jazz standard. The music was written and arranged by Ellington in August 1931 during intermissions at Chicago's Lincoln Tavern and was first recorded by Ellington and his orchestra for Brunswick Records (Br 6265) on February 2, 1932. Ivie Anderson sang the vocal and trombonist Joe Nanton and alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges played the instrumental solos. The title was based on the oft stated credo of Ellington's former trumpeter Bubber Miley, who was dying of tuberculosis. The song became famous, Ellington wrote, as the expression of a sentiment which prevailed among jazz musicians at the time. Probably the first song to use the phrase swing in the title, it introduced the term into everyday language and presaged the Swing Era by three years. The Ellington band played the song continuously over the years and recorded it numerous times, most often with trumpeter Ray Nance as vocalist.

    Charlie Parker: Star Eyes

    3:37

    Charles Charlie Parker, Jr. (August 29, 1920 -- March 12, 1955), also known as Yardbird and Bird, was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Parker acquired the nickname Yardbird early in his career and the shortened form, Bird, which continued to be used for the rest of his life, inspired the titles of a number of Parker compositions, such as Yardbird Suite, Ornithology, Bird Gets the Worm, and Bird of Paradise. Parker was a highly influential jazz soloist and a leading figure in the development of bebop, a form of jazz characterized by fast tempos, virtuosic technique, and improvisation. Parker introduced revolutionary harmonic ideas, including rapid passing chords, new variants of altered chords, and chord substitutions. His tone ranged from clean and penetrating to sweet and somber. Many Parker recordings demonstrate virtuosic technique and complex melodic lines, sometimes combining jazz with other musical genres, including blues, Latin, and classical. Parker was an icon for the hipster subculture and later the Beat Generation, personifying the jazz musician as an uncompromising artist and intellectual, rather than an entertainer...

    Wynton Kelly Trio _ Unit 7

    6:44

    Personnel: Wes Montgomery (guitar); Wynton Kelly (piano); Paul Chambers (bass); Jimmy Cobb (drums).

    Recorded live at the Half Note, New York, New York and Van Gelder Studios, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey in June and September 1965.

    Personnel: Wes Montgomery (guitar); Wynton Kelly (piano); Paul Chambers (bass instrument); Jimmy Cobb (drums).

    Recording information: Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey; 1965.

    This album is the live equivalent of the INCREDIBLE GUITAR album--Wes Montgomery cooking with a seasoned and communicative piano trio on a set of jazz compositions, standards, and original material. INCREDIBLE GUITAR has Tommy Flanagan, Percy Heath, and Albert Heath; SMOKIN' has the Wynton Kelly trio, with Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Not only had the same trio served as one of Miles Davis' great rhythm sections, but Kelly was considered by many to be the most gifted accompanist of his time.

    Miles Davis's No Blues is in fact an utterly relentless blues, with Montgomery nailing each single-note, octave, or block-chord phrase with passionate conviction. Bassist Sam Jones's Unit 7 is another uptempo blues. Four on Six, which debuted on INCREDIBLE GUITAR, gets an edited version of the head and a slightly faster treatment overall. Kelly takes the lead on the first ballad, If You Could See Me Now, Montgomery on the second, framing the melody to What's New in octaves over Cobb's late-night brushes. The excellent sound quality and almost complete lack of audience noise throughout makes SMOKIN' feel like eavesdropping of the best kind.

    Easily one of the most important records ever made, John Coltrane's A Love Supreme was his pinnacle studio outing that at once compiled all of his innovations from his past, spoke of his current deep spirituality, and also gave a glimpse into the next two and a half years (sadly, those would be his last). Recorded at the end of 1964, Trane's classic quartet of Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, and Jimmy Garrison stepped into the studio and created one of the most thought-provoking, concise, and technically pleasing albums of their bountiful relationship (not to mention his best-selling to date). From the undulatory (and classic) bassline at the intro to the last breathy notes, Trane is at the peak of his logical yet emotionally varied soloing while the rest of the group is remarkably in tune with Coltrane's spiritual vibe. Composed of four parts, each has a thematic progression leading to an understanding of spirituality through meditation. From the beginning, Acknowledgement is the awakening of sorts that trails off to the famous chanting of the theme at the end, which yields to the second act, Resolution, an amazingly beautiful piece about the fury of dedication to a new path of understanding. Persuance is a search for that understanding, and Psalm is the enlightenment. Although he is at times aggressive and atonal, this isn't Trane at his most adventurous (pretty much everything recorded from here on out progressively becomes much more free, and live recordings from this period are extremely spirited), but it certainly is his best attempt at the realization of concept — as the spiritual journey is made amazingly clear. A Love Supreme clocks in at just over 30 minutes, but if it had been any longer it could have turned into a laborious listen. As it stands, just enough is conveyed. It is almost impossible to imagine a world without A Love Supreme having been made, and it is equally impossible to imagine any jazz collection without it. [allmusic.com]

    Round Midnight - Thelonious Monk

    3:10

    'Round Midnight is a 1944 jazz standard by pianist Thelonious Monk. It is thought that Monk originally composed the song sometime in 1940 or 1941. 'Round Midnight is the most-recorded jazz standard composed by a jazz musician. In allmusic.com it appears in over 1,000 albums. The song is also called 'Round About Midnight, as Miles Davis used this title for his 1957 Columbia Records album Round About Midnight that included a cover of the song based on Dizzy Gillespie's interpretation. Thelonious Sphere Monk (October 10, 1917 -- February 17, 1982) was an American jazz pianist and composer widely considered one of the giants of American music. He had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire. Monk is the second most-recorded jazz composer after Duke Ellington, which is particularly remarkable as Ellington composed over 1,000 songs while Monk wrote about 70. Often regarded as a founder of bebop, Monk's playing later evolved away from that style. His compositions and improvisations are full of dissonant harmonies and angular melodic twists, and are consistent with Monk's unorthodox approach to the piano, which combined a highly percussive attack with abrupt, dramatic use of silences and hesitations. He died of a stroke on February 17, 1982, and was buried in Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York. In 1993, he was posthumously awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and in 2006, Monk was posthumously awarded a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation. He is one of only five jazz musicians to be featured on the cover of Time magazine (the other four being Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Wynton Marsalis, and Dave Brubeck).

    Dizzy Gillespie - Con Alma

    5:05

    Con Alma is a jazz standard written by Dizzy Gillespie. It incorporates aspects of bebop jazz and Latin rhythm, and is known for its frequent changes in key centers (occurring every two bars), while still maintaining a singable melody. Versions have been recorded by Oscar Peterson, Wes Montgomery, Ed Bickert, Stan Getz and Kenny Burrell. The song was recorded by Chaka Khan in 1982 as part of the Be Bop Medley from her album Chaka Khan.

    John Birks Dizzy Gillespie (October 21, 1917 -- January 6, 1993) was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, composer and occasional singer. Allmusic's Scott Yanow wrote, Dizzy Gillespie's contributions to jazz were huge. One of the greatest jazz trumpeters of all time (some would say the best), Gillespie was such a complex player that his contemporaries ended up copying Miles Davis and Fats Navarro instead, and it was not until Jon Faddis's emergence in the 1970s that Dizzy's style was successfully recreated. Arguably Gillespie is remembered, by both critics and fans alike, as one of the greatest jazz trumpeters of all time.

    Gillespie was a trumpet virtuoso and improviser, building on the virtuoso style of Roy Eldridge but adding layers of harmonic complexity previously unknown in jazz. His beret and horn-rimmed spectacles, his scat singing, his bent horn, pouched cheeks and his light-hearted personality were essential in popularizing bebop.

    Gillespie's trademark trumpet featured a bell which bent upward at a 45-degree angle rather than pointing straight ahead as in the conventional design. According to Gillespie's autobiography, this was originally the result of accidental damage caused by the dancers Stump and Stumpy falling onto it while it was on a trumpet stand on stage at Snookie's in Manhattan on January 6, 1953, during a birthday party for Gillespie's wife Lorraine. The constriction caused by the bending altered the tone of the instrument, and Gillespie liked the effect. He had the trumpet straightened out the next day, but he could not forget the tone. Gillespie sent a request to Martin Committee to make him a bent trumpet from a sketch produced by Lorraine, and from that time forward Gillespie played a trumpet with an upturned bell. Gillespie's biographer Alyn Shipton writes that Gillespie probably got the idea for a bent trumpet when he saw a similar instrument in 1937 in Manchester, England, while on tour with the Teddy Hill Orchestra. According to this account (from British journalist Pat Brand) Gillespie was able to try out the horn and the experience led him, much later, to commission a similar horn for himself.

    Whatever the origins of Gillespie's upswept trumpet, by June 1954, he was using a professionally manufactured horn of this design, and it was to become a visual trademark for him for the rest of his life.

    A longtime resident of Englewood, New Jersey, he died of pancreatic cancer January 6, 1993, aged 75, and was buried in the Flushing Cemetery, Queens, New York. Mike Longo delivered a eulogy at his funeral. He was also with Gillespie on the night he died, along with Jon Faddis and a select few others.

    At the time of his death, Gillespie was survived by his widow, Lorraine Willis Gillespie; a daughter, jazz singer Jeanie Bryson; and a grandson, Radji Birks Bryson-Barrett. Gillespie had two funerals. One was a Bahá'í funeral at his request, at which his closest friends and colleagues attended. The second was at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York open to the public.

    In December 1986 Gillespie gave the National Museum of American History his 1972 King Silver Flair trumpet with a Cass mouthpiece. In April 1995, Gillespie's Martin trumpet was auctioned at Christie's in New York City, along with instruments used by other famous musicians such as Coleman Hawkins, Jimi Hendrix and Elvis Presley. An image of Gillespie's trumpet was selected for the cover of the auction program. The battered instrument sold to Manhattan builder Jeffery Brown for $63,000, the proceeds benefiting jazz musicians suffering from cancer.

    Dizzy's accompanied by José Manguel (bongos); Gilberto Valdez (flute); Rafael Miranda (percussion), Rene Hernandez (piano); and Ubaldo Nieto (timbales). Recorded June 3, 1954 at Fine Sound, New York City. (Verve Records)

    Jazz Classics: Dizzy Gillespie - A Night In Tunisia

    3:13

    hip hop fans should recognize the very beginning of this song as one of the many samples in Gang Starr's 1989 debut single Words I Manifest. this track is simply amazing. everything from Dizzie's amazing trumpet playing to the infectious sound of the vibes that are sprinkled throughout the track. Dizzie Gillespie is famous for being one of the founders of Bebop, modern (along with Charlie Parker) and Cuban influenced Jazz. he died in January of 1993 but left his legacy behind. the pictures on this video show his face looking like that of a blowfish. his face looked like this because he never had any formal instruction on playing the trumpet but learned to play it anyways which damaged his face. you may recognize the style of trumpet he is playing; horn pointing upward. this was his signature and he was the very first to do this. he is also considered by many the first ever beat nick. enjoy.

    Twisted
    Lyrics written by Annie Ross.
    Music written by Wardell Gray.


    My analyst told me
    that I was right out of my head
    The way he described it
    he said I'd be better dead than live
    I didn't listen to his jive
    I knew all along that he was all wrong
    And I knew that he thought I was crazy
    But I'm not,
    oh no


    My analyst told me
    that I was right out of my head
    He said I need treatment
    but I'm not that easily led
    He said I was the type that was most inclined
    When out of his sight to be out of my mind
    And he thought I was nuts
    No more ifs or ands or buts

    They say as I child I appeared a little bit wild
    With all my crazy ideas, but I knew what was happening
    I knew I was a genius
    What's so strange
    When you know that you're a wizard at three
    I knew that this was meant to be

    Now I heard little children were supposed to sleep tight
    That's why I got into the vodka one night
    My parents got frantic didn't know what to do
    But I saw some crazy scenes before I came to
    Now do you think I was crazy
    I may have been only three, but I was swinging

    They all laughed at A. Graham Bell, they all laughed at Edison
    And also at Einstein, so why should I feel sorry
    If they just couldn't understand the idiomatic logic
    That went on in my head, I had a brain, it was insane
    Oh they used to laugh at me when I'd refuse to ride
    On all those double-decker buses
    All because there was no driver on the top

    What, no driver on the top?
    Man the chick is twisted, crazy, moogie-shoogie, idiot flip city!


    My analyst told me
    that I was right out of my head
    But I said dear doctor
    I think that it's you instead
    Because I've got a thing that's unique and new
    To prove that I'll have the last laugh on you
    'Cause instead of one head
    I've got two
    And you know two heads are better than one
