Jazz / Hard Bop / Trombone

Trombonist Curtis Fuller's recordings for Savoy in the 1950s, like those of labelmates Hank Mobley, Milt Jackson, Wilbur Harden, Donald Byrd, and others, were prototypes in the development of hard bop. The next stage would come with the subsequent work of many of the same artists for Blue Note, where improved recording technique, greater attention to writing and arranging, and a more generous policy with respect to preparation and rehearsal time helped bring in the classic hard bop era of the late '50s and early '60s. On Fuller's Jazz…It's Magic, the hard bop prototype is still under refinement, but it's easy to enjoy the music in its essential elements: elegant, bluesy melodies; earthy, yet sophisticated, solo work; and fresh treatments of standards.

Born Robert Lee Gray, Bobby grew up on a plantation in Winterville, Washington County, Mississippi. At the age of 7, he was put to work in the cotton fields. Everybody in the area worked on a cotton farm. Life was hard. Most people were poor, and Bobby was no exception. But cotton wasn’t the only thing Bobby began early. Living in such close proximity to the likes of BB King, Mississippi Slim and Bobby Bland, he was bitten by the blues bug. By age 11, he was frequenting juke joints. Bands would come from nearby Greenville to play in Winterville. If he could scrape together enough money, Bobby would go inside to see the show. If he didn’t have the money, he listened from outside, and dreamed of trading the cotton hoe for a microphone.

Like the other Savoy recordings of Curtis Fuller, The Curtis Fuller Jazztet is a relaxed hard bop set featuring many of the young stars of the day. The more famous Blues-ette, from earlier in 1959, featured Tommy Flanagan, Jimmy Garrison, and Al Harewood. This time, however, the Fuller/Golson combination included Lee Morgan, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and the percussive talents of drummer Charlie Persip. Listeners already acquainted with Blues-ette (or other comparable dates) should find this session to be familiar territory.

Curtis Sittenfeld - Come sposare un milionario
Italian | 2016 | 478 pages | ISBN: 8851140022 | EPUB | 0,6 MB

Il matrimonio è sopravvalutato. Almeno è così che la pensa il Signor Bennet, padre di cinque splendide figlie - tutte ostinatamente nubili - e marito di lungo corso di una donna ingombrante. Ma quando Chip Bingley, scapolo tra i più ambiti, fa ritorno a Cincinnati, niente e nessuno può contenere la frenesia che come una febbre si impossessa della Signora Bennet. L'eccitabile e invadente matriarca, infatti, è pronta a tutto pur di vedere sistemate almeno le maggiori tra le sue ragazze: la dolce Jane, maestra di yoga ormai vicina ai quaranta e tormentata dal desiderio di un figlio, e l'inquieta Lizzie, giornalista residente a New York e single part-time. Poco importa che problemi ben più pressanti minaccino la serenità della famiglia … Sull'orlo della rovina economica, incalzate da mille imprevisti e complicazioni, riusciranno le sorelle Bennet a sopravvivere a quel ciclone chiamato amore?

Free and open minds and quiet temperament, Daniel Erdmann (tenor saxophone) and Christophe Marguet (drums) have naturally found themselves in a face-to-face formula, in 2010 for fun and very seriously in 2012 to record the album "Together Together" published in 2014 (Abalone), one of our favorites that year. So we find them together, surrounded by two of their most faithful contrabassist friends: Henri Texier and Claude Tchamitchian.
