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.

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. It’s fun to peek into the private musings of people we admire. Randy Weston. Randy Weston (born April 6, 1926, in Brooklyn, New York), is an American jazz pianist and composer, of Jamaican parentage.[1] He was described by Marian McPartland as "one of the world's great visionary pianists and composers".[2] 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.[3] Biography[edit] Early life[edit] Weston was raised in Brooklyn, where his father, Frank, owned a restaurant [4].

"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 frayed edges

Swing-style jazz retained some of its earlier mainstream popularity but, by the late ’40s and ’50s, big bands were shrinking, their relevancy plateauing.

These photos are of Bud Powell’s funeral procession on August 8, 1966. I’ve added a few more photos since I first put these on the site. These come from an unknown photographer’s collection – see my other pages of photos from the Apollo Theater and of Moondog, Jimmy Nottingham and street musicians in Harlem, Greenwich Village and Central Park. Dan Morgenstern reported on the funeral for Down Beat’s September 22, 1966 issue: In the lead was Harlem’s own Jazzmobile, appropriately draped for the occasion, and carrying a jazz band … the members were Benny Green, trombone; John Gilmore, tenor saxophone; Barry Harris, piano; Don Moore, bass; Billy Higgins, drums, and at the last moment, Lee Morgan, trumpet.

First came “Now’s the Time” and then, perhaps more appropriately, “‘Round Midnight”, followed by two Powell tunes, “Bud’s Bubble” and “Dance of the Infidels”.The music stopped when the cortege reached the church. Ric Colbeck: 'a player of exceptional power and complexity' Frustratingly little is known of this enigmatic trumpeter.
