The explosion of creative freedom that characterized jazz in the late 1950s and 1960s was just one step in the process of musicians taking control and responsibility for their lives. Promoting, owning and distributing their own product were other obvious results. Rent parties and private releases may have been a part of the music scene forever, but in the 1970s, on the heels of the "black power" movement, self-sufficiency started to look like a crusade. Clifford Jordan

We’re fascinated by lists. Other people’s lists. Even the ones left behind in shopping carts are interesting (Jarlsburg, Gruyere and Swiss? Must be making fondue.) But it’s the lists made by famous people that are the really good stuff. Advice From the Master: Thelonious Monk Scribbles a List of Tips for Playing a Gig
Randy Weston (born April 6, 1926 in Brooklyn , New York ), is an American jazz pianist and composer , of Jamaican parentage. [ 1 ] Randy Weston's piano style owes much to Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk (he has paid direct tribute to both on the "portraits" albums), but it is highly distinctive in its qualities: percussive, highly rhythmic, capable of producing a wide variety of moods. [ 2 ] [ edit ] Biography [ edit ] Early life Weston was raised in Brooklyn, where his father owned a restaurant. Randy Weston

To escape the cold that makes me feel old this week I took another trip up to Trumpet Mountain.I walked into the main hall and heard Clifford Brown practicing in a room inside.I stood outside his door and listened.The stuff he was playing was way,way past running down chord changes. "Brownie's been hanging out with Don Cherry and Don Ayler" I was shocked to hear these words come from none other than Gil Evans standing in front of me.Gil said he was on Trumpet mountain to talk to Miles about a new symphonic work but that nobody had seen him. "I'm glad I ran into you Matt Lavelle.I have some thoughts about you and that lady Alto Clarinet.You have been friends now a long time,isn't that your third Alto? The Coda

The post-War decades were golden times for the torch-y, late-night jazz vocal. Swing-style jazz retained some of its earlier mainstream popularity but, by the late ’40s and ’50s, big bands were shrinking, their relevancy plateauing. Out of practical necessity, and certainly in terms of its cultural currency, smaller-group jazz, especially bop, was ascendant. The modern, jazz-inflected vocal ballad would achieve some sort of apotheosis in this time. The frayed edges | Office Naps

Byard Lancaster, Jazz Alto Saxophonist, Dies at 70 - SH Forums
Recently, I was listening to a reissue of Sounds of Liberation's self-titled 1972 LP, due out on Feb. 16; I have an advance copy for purposes of review (set for print in Signal to Noise , #57). Porter Records has unearthed what was long the province of only the most dedicated collectors. The septet included Dwight James (drums), Khan Jamal (vibraphone), Byard Lancaster (alto sax), Rashid Salim (conga), Monnette Sudler (electric guitar), Omar Hill (percussion), and Billy Mills (electric bass). It occurred to me while writing that not only was I unfamiliar with all of these musicians, but I was completely ignorant of the fact that Philadelphia had its own fertile jazz scene in the 1970s. What appealed to me in Sounds of Liberation was the combination of funk and Ayler-like mysticism, so I took the time to find out if its contributors had any other recording history; to my surprise, many of them were quite accomplished players who had led numerous sessions from the seventies on.
