    cannonball adderley - gemini

    12:45

    Cannonball In Europe! was recorded live on August 5, 1962 at the International Jazz Festival in Comblain-La-Tour, a small town in Belgium. The recent addition of legendary reedsman Yusef Lateef pushed Adderley's combo to a powerful sextet. With three horns blazing (Lateef, brother Nat Adderley on trumpet and Cannonball on alto sax), the band charged through a stunning concert in front of the largest audience it had ever played. The five song, 50 minute set blasts off with Lateef's complex P.Bouk and never lets up. Favorites Gemini and Work Song are played with fire and passion. And Lateef's soulful, moving oboe on the blues standard Trouble in Mind is stellar. But, it's the frisky call and response between the reeds and horn, underpinned by Sam Jones' sturdy bass, Louis Hayes' energized drums and an understated Joe Zawinul on piano, that creates the fireworks that blasts this gig into the stratosphere. The reissue doesn't unearth any extra tracks, but the sound has been improved and newly penned liner notes describe the historical background to this superb show. --Hal Horowitz

    7:57

    Donald Byrd is an American jazz and rhythm and blues trumpeter. He was performing with Lionel Hampton before finishing high school. Byrd is one of the only bebop jazz musicians who successfully pioneered the funk & soul genres while remaining a pop artist. In 1973 he created The Blackbyrds, a fusion group consisting of his best students. The Blackbyrds had several major hits including Happy Music, Rock Creek Park, and Walking In Rhythm. In 1972 he teamed up with the Mizell Brothers for the album Black Byrd. Black Byrdwas highly successful and became Blue Note Records' highest-ever selling album. He has performed with a variety of jazz musicians including John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, & Thelonious Monk. In addition to his Masters from Manhattan School of Music, Byrd has two masters from Columbia University. Byrd received a law degree in 1976, and his doctorate from Columbia University Teachers College in 1982. He has taught music at Rutgers University, the Hampton Institute, New York University, and Howard University. He has also taught music at Queens College, Oberlin College, Cornell University and Delaware State University. In September 2009, he was named an artist-in-residence at Delaware State University. This selection, written by Byrd, first appeared in his 1990 album Getting Down To Business. It has also been included in numerous compilation albums including his Landmarks released in 1998.

    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.

    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.

    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.
