Queens of Jazz is a celebration of some of the greatest female jazz singers of the 20th century. It takes an unflinching and revealing look at what it actually took to be a jazz diva during a turbulent time in America's social history - a time when battle lines were being constantly drawn around issues of race, gender and popular culture. This is a documentary about how these women triumphed - always at some personal cost - to become some of the greatest artists of the 20th century; women who chose singing above life itself because singing was their life.

Duke Ellington recorded for Brunswick from 1926 to 1931, the period in which his great talent and great orchestra first flowered, whether the band was recording under his own name or such pseudonyms as the Washingtonians or the Jungle Band. The earliest recordings are highlighted by the presence of trumpeter Bubber Miley and trombonist "Tricky Sam" Nanton, whose brilliant work with plunger mutes for vocal effects did much to define the early sound–which, in turn, rapidly evolved and expanded with the additions of Harry Carney, Johnny Hodges, and Cootie Williams. While the band's repertoire included many blues and popular songs, its distinctive identity emerges from early renditions of such trademark pieces as "East St. Louis Toodle-O," "Black and Tan Fantasy," "The Mooche," and "Mood Indigo." By the end of the period covered in this set, Ellington's ambitious later suites–some of them CD-length–are portended in the elegant extended composition "Creole Rhapsody," his clearly superior contribution to the symphonic jazz movement.

Kansas City Jazz: From Ragtime to Bebop-A History (repost)

Kansas City Jazz: From Ragtime to Bebop-A History by Chuck Haddix
English | 26 May 2005 | ISBN: 0195047672 | 288 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

There were but four major galaxies in the early jazz universe, and three of them–New Orleans, Chicago, and New York–have been well documented in print. But there has never been a serious history of the fourth, Kansas City, until now. In this colorful history, Frank Driggs and Chuck Haddix range from ragtime to bebop and from Bennie Moten to Charlie Parker to capture the golden age of Kansas City jazz.

Let's get two things straight right off the bat; don't use modes to play bebop (see the Bebop Improv Survival Guide if that's your calling); and secondly, you won't find any Greek references in Fareed's teachings. "When's the last time you saw or heard a toga-wearing ancient Greek jazz musician?" Throughout the Modal Improv Survival Guide, Fareed demonstrates how to use the notes in each mode to build chords and melodies to create moods. "Early jazz and bebop players used a chromatic, arpeggio-based approach to build melodies, while the more modern players used modes to limit their note choices and set a mood for their improvisations." Good news; you will grasp the concept of modal playing very quickly, especially under Fareed's tutelage. There's no complicated chord changes to solo over; often times you're improvising over simple one and two-chord vamps.
