Twenty-Five Great Jazz Soprano Saxophone Performances
Huffington Post - 19 days
The soprano Saxophone has been the stepchild to its large brothers, the Alto and Tenor saxophones in jazz music. Despite a lineage that dates to the early twenties, the soprano was not widely used as a solo instrument in many early jazz recordings, with most soloists preferring the clarinet for its warmer, richer sound. The soprano is typically found as a straight barreled instrument although small curved horns that look like baby alto saxophones with a straighter crook are also in use. The saxophone was invented by Adolphe Sax in 1846. Modern soprano instruments have a range of between Ab3 to E6 pitched one octave higher than the tenor, but some skilled players can play in the altissimo register allowing them to play even higher. Sidney Bechet photo credit unknown It has been said that the great Sidney Bechet, a New Orleans born classically trained musician, discovered a quality soprano saxophone while on tour in England with Marion Cook's Southern Syncopated Orchestra, s ...

Twenty-Five Great Jazz Baritone Saxophone Peformances
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Ronnie Cuber The cumbersome and often unwieldy baritone saxophone has long been relegated to the position of a shadowy stepchild to its more grandiloquent brothers, the tenor and alto saxophones, in jazz music. A low register behemoth that requires voluminous breath, careful control and formidable stamina, it has been used primarily in jazz orchestras to produce those low resonant notes that bring the bottom end to life in modern jazz orchestra arrangements. Prominently used in the great jazz orchestras of Duke Ellington and Count Basie, the baritone saxophone was played by the great Harry Carney in the Ellington band and by Jack Washington in the Basie band. Carney, with his incredible use of circular breathing and his pure uncluttered tone, is widely recognized as having been a pioneer on the instrument, bringing the baritone out of the obscurity of the saxophone section and into the limelight of a solo instrument. Using Carney and to a lesser extent Washington as inspiration ...

Ralph A. Miriello: Notes on Jazz's Annual 4th of July Living Legends of Jazz Celebration
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Jimmy Cobb photo by Lena Ashasheva ©2013 Another year has passed since Notes on Jazz published its annual Living Legend of Jazz feature. This is the fourth such compilation, a yearly reminder and a joyful celebration of the artistry and longevity of jazz artists that have been living in our midst. With each year we marvel at some familiar new members who have entered into the ranks of the Living Legends. The criteria are uncomplicated, simply induct any musician, working or retired who has reached their seventieth birthday and has contributed to the canon of the music, keeping the spirit and tradition of the music alive. They could be relatively obscure or internationally recognized, but in their own way they made a difference. Many of us grew up with these artists and have followed their careers through the years. As this is an organic list, ever-changing, like the music, its ranks are added to and depleted each year. Sadly, since last July 4th, ,we have continued to lo ...

Bank CEO Pay Jumps Again
Huffington Post - over 3 years
NEW YORK (AP) — Top bankers keep getting bigger paydays. The median pay for bank CEOs jumped 22 percent in 2012, according to a report by SNL Financial released first to The Associated Press. That came on top of a 10 percent increase in 2011 and a 4 percent increase in 2010. John Stumpf of Wells Fargo was the industry's best-paid CEO, according to calculations by SNL, a business and financial analysis firm. Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase & Co., who took a pay cut because of the bank's embarrassing trading loss last year, still came in at No. 3. The median bank CEO pay amounted to about $552 million, up from $452 million in 2011, and included salary, bonus, perks, the potential value of stock and option awards and other elements. There were big disparities, however, between banks of different sizes. CEOs at the biggest banks got their pay cut overall, while CEOs at smaller banks got pay increases. ...

Roy Haynes photo by Fran Kaufman © 2012 Notes on Jazz Third Annual Living Legends of Jazz 2012 Once again it is time for my annual Notes on Jazz listing of the Living Legend of Jazz .This is the third annual compilation, and with each year we gain some new members and sadly lose some old friends. The list is a celebration of those who have, for so long, graced us with their talents, their creativity and their love of the music. Last year, we saw the passing of some truly venerable legends. Musicians, performers, innovators, teachers and mentors who made an indelible mark on society at large and on the music in particular. Some were famous, some infamous and all will be missed. This fraternity of Jazz Legends lost two drummers. A onetime member of both the Ellington and Basie band's drummer Butch Ballard passed at the age of 92. The eclectic rhythm machine, Paul Motian, who together with bassist Scott LaFaro and pianist Bill Evans formed what was perhaps the mo ...

Alex Simon: Andrew Davis Returns to Stony Island
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Director Andrew Davis made his name with hard-hitting action blockbusters like The Fugitive, Under Siege and The Guardian, but like most filmmakers, his first effort was a small film with a modest budget and a lot of heart. Davis' directing debut Stony Island was shot in 1977, helmed by the then-30 year-old who had made a name for himself as a cinematographer, conceived as a love letter to the South Chicago neighborhood where he grew up. Based loosely on the story of Davis' younger brother Richie (who plays a fictionalized version of himself), who grew up as one of the few white kids in a largely African-American neighborhood, Stony Island follows a group of young musicians who try to form an R&B group in their ethnically-mixed neighborhood during the racially-charged days of the late 1970s. Stony Island, which Davis co-wrote and produced with Tamar Simon Hoffs, arrives on DVD and VOD from Cinema Libre Studio on April 24 and will have a special screening at The Amer ...
