Drummer Joe Morello, the longtime drummer with the Dave Brubeck Quartet, has died.
Raised in Springfield, Mass. with impaired vision from birth, Morello eventually found his way to New York City, where he played with many leading jazz musicians. In the 1950s, he was a regular member of pianist and NPR host Marian McPartland’s band. In 1990, that band, known as the Hickory House Trio after the venue of their employment, reconvened to tape a special reunion episode of Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz.
However, Morello is best known for his tenure with Brubeck, who employed him for over 12 years during the height of Brubeck’s fame. Famously, the smash hit “Take Five” was arranged as a solo feature for Morello.Posted 11 March, 2011 in Seattle Jazz, Video - Comments Off comments
from The Seattle Times:
A new Seattle label, Table and Chairs, launches Saturday with a concert at the Q Café, in Interbay. The label features experimental jazz, but not exclusively. It is associated with students of University of Washington music professor Cuong Vu. The same circle of musicians are involved with the Improvised Music Project (IMP), which presents monthly concerts and a festival, and Café Racer, which features Sunday night shows in the University District. “I think of IMP as the little brother to Racer, which then feeds into TnC,” said Vu, in an e-mail. “It’s one fluid path that starts at the UW, then to Racer where then more of the non-UW public is now joining.” The launch concert features Friendly Creature, guitarist Kristian Garrard, Small Face, Chemical Clock and saxophonist Neil Welch.
The show is at 8 p.m. Saturday, Q Café, 3223 15th Ave. W., Seattle; $10 (206-352-2525 or http://www.qcafe.org).Posted 14 February, 2011 in Seattle Jazz, Video - Comments Off comments
Congrats to Esperanza Spalding and her win for Best New Artist last night at The Grammys. Anytime Joe Lovano and other jazz artists are thanked on national television it is a good thing. Spalding’s star will certainly continue to rise … next stop, the Portland Jazz Festival which starts this weekend.
Here is a video of her backstage at The Grammys after her win:
Chad McCullough and John Bishop are in Europe in support of their new release, Imaginary Sketches, with Belgium pianist Bram Weijters and bassist Piet Verbist. A video has been posted from their performance at The Appeltuin Jazz Festival in Leuven, Belgium.
On this show Lionel Beuvens was filling in for John Bishop on drums, who missed the show due to illness.Posted 21 December, 2010 in Seattle Jazz, Video - Comments Off comments
