Ethel Llewellyn Ennis        USA        1932-2019

 

Ethel Ennis was in bed

one night in the mid-1950s

when Billie Holiday called.

 

Ms. Ennis

was in her mid-20s

at the time,

a jazz vocalist on the rise

and, like Holiday,

a product of Baltimore.

 

At first she figured

it was a prank call.

 

But she quickly recognized

Holiday’s dusty voice.

 

“You have a great voice;

you don’t fake it,”

she later remembered

Holiday saying.

 

“Keep it up

and you’ll be famous.”

 

Ms. Ennis soon fulfilled

Holiday’s prophesy

— but only for a short time.

 

She recorded

for major labels

in the late 1950s

and the ’60s;

 

toured Europe

with Benny Goodman;

 

performed onstage

alongside Miles Davis,

John Coltrane

and Louis Armstrong;

 

and appeared on television

with Duke Ellington.

 

She became a regular

on Arthur Godfrey’s TV show

and headlined

the Newport Jazz Festival.

 

In 1961 she won

the Playboy jazz poll

for best female singer.

 

But she soon

grew disillusioned

with the demands

placed on young divas,

and she eschewed

national celebrity

for a quieter life

in her hometown.

 

She became

a beloved performer

and jazz advocate there,

earning the unofficial title

of Baltimore’s

“First Lady of Jazz.”

Beatrice Ruth Wain        USA        1917-2017

 

In a short-lived

recording career

(curtailed by a two-year strike

by musicians over royalties

that began in 1942),

Ms. Wain was voted

most popular

female band vocalist

in Billboard’s 1939 college poll.

(Ella Fitzgerald was second.)

 

She had No. 1 hits

with versions

of the standards

“Deep Purple”

and “Heart and Soul”

as well as

“Cry, Baby, Cry”

and, most notably,

“My Reverie,”

an up-tempo version

of the classic Debussy

piano piece “Reverie”

with lyrics by Mr. Clinton.

John Laird Abercrombie        USA        1944-2017

 

(...) jazz guitarist

whose lyrical style

placed him

in his generation’s

top tier of improvising

musicians

 

(...)


Mr. Abercrombie

became known

in the mid-1970s

as a prominent

jazz-rock guitarist.

 

But as his style evolved

and he moved away

from fusion,

it was his knack

for understatement

and his affinity for classic

jazz guitar technique

that defined his approach.

 

He played in bands

led by the drummer

Jack DeJohnette

and the saxophonist

Gato Barbieri,

among others,

before ECM Records

released

his first album as a leader,

“Timeless,” in 1975.

Robert Hutcherson        USA        1941-2016

 

(...) one of the most

admired and accomplished

vibraphonists in jazz (...)

 

Mr. Hutcherson’s career

took flight

in the early 1960s,

as jazz was slipping free

of the complex harmonic

and rhythmic

designs of bebop.

 

He was fluent

in that language,

but he was also

one of the first

to adapt his instrument

to a freer postbop language,

often playing chords

with a pair of mallets

in each hand.

 

He released

more than 40 albums

and appeared on many more,

including some regarded

as classics,

like “Out to Lunch,”

by the alto saxophonist,

flutist and bass clarinetist

Eric Dolphy,

and “Mode for Joe,”

by the tenor saxophonist

Joe Henderson.

 

Both of those albums

were a byproduct

of Mr. Hutcherson’s

close affiliation

with Blue Note Records,

from 1963 to 1977.

 

He was part

of a wave of young artists

who defined the label’s

forays into experimentalism,

including the pianist

Andrew Hill

and the alto saxophonist

Jackie McLean.

 

But he also worked

with hard-bop stalwarts

like the tenor saxophonist

Dexter Gordon,

and he later delved

into jazz-funk

and Afro-Latin grooves.

 

Mr. Hutcherson

had a clear,

ringing sound,

but his style

was luminescent

and coolly fluid.

 

More than

Milt Jackson

or Lionel Hampton,

his major predecessors

on the vibraphone,

he made an art

out of resonating

overtones

and chiming decay.

 

This coloristic

range of sound,

which he often used

in the service

of emotional expression,

was one reason

for the deep influence

he left on stylistic inheritors

like Joe Locke,

Warren Wolf,

Chris Dingman

and Stefon Harris,

who recently assessed him as

“by far the most harmonically

advanced person

to ever play the vibraphone.”

Hyman Paul Bley        CAN        1932-2016

 

(...) an obdurate

and original pianist

who began his career

playing bebop

and eventually

became a major force

in experimental jazz

 

(...)

 

Mr. Bley’s

style of playing

was melodic,

measured, bluesy,

often polytonal

and seemingly

effortless.

 

He took as long

as he needed

to finish a thought,

and at the tempo

he chose for it.

 

He loved standards

but distrusted

the strictures

of the 32-bar song form,

and especially

distrusted repetition.

 

His notes

could move slowly

without telegraphing

their destination,

drawling down

into nothing

or cohering

into bright,

purposefully gapped lines,

with backing chords

that kept changing

the tonal center.

 

Mr. Bley

(pronounced “blay”)

developed

an influential language

of phrasing and harmony

— Keith Jarrett

and Ethan Iverson

were two

of its many beneficiaries —

but often talked

about being eager

to get outside

his own habits.

 

In the 1981

documentary

“Imagine the Sound,”

he professed

not to practice

or rehearse,

out of what he called

“a disdain for the known.”

 

And he did not stake

his work

on traditional notions

of acceptability,

or the approval

of the listener.

in the 1960s

as the pianist

with the Jazz Crusaders

and an even bigger star

a decade later

when he began

playing electric keyboards

and the group

simplified its name

to the Crusaders

 

(...)

 

The Jazz Crusaders,

who played the muscular,

bluesy variation

on bebop known

as hard bop,

had their roots in Houston,

where Mr. Sample,

the tenor saxophonist

Wilton Felder

and the drummer

Nesbert Hooper

(better known

by the self-explanatory

first name Stix)

began performing together

as the Swingsters

while in high school.

Mr. Wilson

was not yet 21

when he joined

replacing Sy Oliver,

and he was believed

to have been

of its prewar incarnation.

 

He went on to write

and arrange rich

and imaginative music

for Duke Ellington,

Count Basie,

Dizzy Gillespie,

Ella Fitzgerald,

Sarah Vaughan

and many other

major names in jazz.

 

He brought

robust harmonies

and a wide

spectrum of colors

to his orchestrations,

but he may have

been best known

for his versatility

and his enduring freshness.

Charles / Charlie Edward Haden        USA        1937-2014

 

one of the most

influential bassists

in the history of jazz

 

(...)

 

His jazz career

crossed seven decades,

with barely

a moment of obscurity.

 

He was

in his early 20s in 1959,

when, as a member

of the Ornette Coleman

Quartet,

he helped set off

a seismic disruption

in jazz.

 

Mr. Coleman,

an alto saxophonist,

had been developing

a brazen,

polytonal approach

to improvisation

— it would come

to be known as free jazz —

and in his band,

which had

no chordal instrument,

Mr. Haden served

as anchor and pivot.

 

Mr. Coleman’s clarion cry,

often entangled with that

of the trumpeter Don Cherry,

grabbed much of the attention,

but Mr. Haden’s playing

was just as crucial,

for its feeling

of unerring rightness

in the face

of an apparent ruckus.

Jazz and the Civil Rights Movement

Jazz performers responded to the force of the civil rights movement

by recording and performing their music.

The most ambitious response was the Freedom Now Suite of Max Roach,

recorded in August and September 1960,

and involving such major performers as

Coleman Hawkins, Abbey Lincoln,

and Nigerian drummer Olatunji.

The Freedom Now Suite was issued on the small label Candid Records

rather than on Max Roach's regular label, Mercury.

The music

was mostly rooted

in that most accessible

20th-century formula,

the twelve-bar blues.

Hearing Music in Photos of Jazz Giants

By John Leland        NYT        Aug. 16, 2016

http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2016/08/16/hearing-music-in-photos-of-jazz-giants/

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 jazz singer known

for her probing

interpretations of lyrics

and her bruised

but unbowed point of view

 

(...)


Although Ms. McRae

never reached

the heights of popularity

attained by Ella Fitzgerald,

Sarah Vaughan

and Billie Holiday,

she was widely regarded

as their artistic equal.

 

In a prolific

recording career

that spanned

nearly five decades,

she had only

two minor hits,

both in the mid-1950's.

 

But the scores of songs

on she which stamped

her bittersweet,

gently mocking signature

included "Alfie,"

"The Music That Makes Me Dance,"

"Guess Who I Saw Today?,"

"Blame It on My Youth,"

"Yesterdays" and "Mean to Me."

 

(...)

 

Ms. McRae was born

in Harlem on April 8, 1920,

one of four children of immigrants

from the West Indies.

 

Growing up in Brooklyn,

she attended

Julia Richman High School

in Manhattan

and received

her musical grounding

in five years

of formal piano lessons.

McKinley Howard "Kenny" Dorham        1924-1972

 

Kenny Dorham (...)

was a trumpet player

of authority and great style;

he moved from his early days

in the be-bop era

to the 1960's progressions

of the music gracefully,

without showing the permanent

markings of his youth.
