Creative Music with Miff Mole 7/9/15
Blog Name: Progressive NightsAuthor: Miff Mole Posted on: July 9, 2015
I do not multi-task well. My multi-tasking is more stretched out linear-like, not stacked. Some might say it's not multi-tasking if it's not simultaneous but I would ask "how simultaneous does it have to be?" Right now E.S.T. is rolling "Still" from Leucocyte. This piece is certainly one mood of Free Time, but next is "Summer Song/Two/Evening" by Bill Dixon. Similar, but very different from each other. In the scope of things, there's going to be something around the corner that could change everything.

Mark Dresser Receives 2015 Doris Duke Impact Award
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: June 30, 2015
San Diego Jazz Musician, Composer, Bandleader, Educator, and Innovator Mark Dresser has been named as one of 20 recipients of the Doris Duke Impact Awards for 2015, receiving $80,000 to be used over 3 years as he wishes. Since April 2014, the foundation has awarded a total of $3.2 million in Impact Awards to 40 artists in the fields of jazz, dance and theatre. The Doris Duke Impact Award, in particular, has a unique nomination process, as explained by Ben Cameron, program director for the arts at the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, "The Doris Duke Impact Awards are based on nominations submitted by artists, identifying others (often less widely known) that will have enormous impact on the jazz, dance or theatre fields in the future.

Congratulations Mark Dresser! 2015 Doris Duke Impact Award Winner

Dresser’s reaction to the award, as captured by Robert Bush, San Diego Jazz Writer, in an NBC San Diego Blog Post, "I felt gratified being recognized by this organization and it’s especially meaningful to know that I was chosen by a panel made up of distinguished but unknown colleagues in the field. I’m still trying to get a handle on the implications of such a significant financial prize attached and continuing to figure out what that could mean in realizing my music on a more dimensional level."

Ornette Coleman 6/11/15
Blog Name: Progressive NightsAuthor: Miff Mole Posted on: June 11, 2015
Ornette Coleman was one of the modern innovators. He just passed away at the age of 85. Here are random notes as I rolled along.
  • Sound Grammar was one of his last recordings. I'm celebrating the music not hashing the details. Denardo Coleman on drums, Gregory Cohen and Tony Falanga on basses (plucked and bowed, respectively), and Ornette Coleman on alto sax, trumpet, and violin.
  • For me Sound Grammar presents the open aspect perfectly, four directions woven together into a super strong design
  • Charlie Haden, Jimmy Garrison, Scott LaFaro
  • Billy Higgins, Ed Blackwell, Denardo
  • Don Cherry, Dewey Redman (ps. Bobby Bradford)
  • Free Jazz, Harmolodics, Sound Grammar
  • Lot of random notes for those last points so dig this if you want to...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ornette_Coleman
thanks for listening...

Young Jazz Lions Looking For A New Den
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: June 4, 2015
Word came to Jazz 88.3 via Facebook from San Diego Jazz trumpter, band leader, educator, and entrepreneur Gilbert Castellanos...

 Hello family & friends, I am sad to say that the month of June will be the last month for the Young Lions series at Croce's Park West. I want to thank the people who came out on Wednesday nights to support the young musicians. I am proud of the young talented musicians for the work they put into promoting their night, preparing and rehearsing music for their sets, and showing true professionalism on stage. This is really where my passion and heart and soul is, watching these young adults blossom into amazing musicians! I also want to thank Ingrid Croce and Jimmy Rock for giving us a home to perform for the last 16 months. I DO NOT want this to be the end of the young lion series! It's crucial that we keep this going for the future of jazz in San Diego! As of today, I am searching for a new home for the series! I would love to get the program back on it's feet by July! Please feel free to inbox me if you would like to share your thoughts/suggestions! 

Keep jazz alive!!!

With love and respect,

Gil

Gilbert estimates that there have been over 200 young musicians that have played for the series, with 80% of them still in high school. The evening usually draws a big crowd with standing room only being not uncommon. Gilbert's goal is to "find a venue that can guarantee the young musicians a fee" in order to keep the evening free and "really pack the joint!" According to Gilbert, the lions have been doing a "great job" promoting their nights on the bandstand. 

Jazz 88.3 is helping to get this search underway with this blog post, but this is an opportunity that will take the community of business leaders, art directors and presenters, music educators to move forward AND ESPECIALLY the support of Jazz, Music, Education, and Art Lovers and Supporters dedicating themselves to go and see and hear and exhort The Future of Jazz forward to do as Gilbert says, KEEP JAZZ ALIVE, at whatever home these Young Lions find next. 

If you have ideas for a venue to keep the Young Lions series alive, contact Gillbert Castellanos via email at Gilbertc1972@aol.com, his personal Facebook page or the Gilbert Castellanos Music Facebook Fan Page (and give it a "Like" too ;)

Clearly I'm no correspondent. Too long since the last entry is one way to look at it. Lucky to be standing is the dramatic way to look at it. New studio and delivery system has everything going sideways but forward. Muscle memory disruption is like learning to walk, or is it complacency crumbling away from decades status quo? Hey man, it's a computer.

How Did Your Mom Influence Your Love of Jazz and Music?
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: May 8, 2015
One of the best things I find out in the interviews I have the honor of doing on The New Jazz Thing or as part of Jazz Live San Diego, or just in talking with Jazz and music lovers I come across is the influence of their family and upbringing on what they love as their passion and/or do as their livelihood. And while having a talented Jazz Mom may give you a little step-up in following in her footsteps, there are many other ways that our parents, and Mom's in particular as we head toward Mother's Day 2015, have put us on the path toward the music we love and play and listen to day in and day out. My Mom, in particular, made sure that we listened to big string orchestrated music which I think directly led to my liking of both small ensembles with strings and to the complexity that can come with large ensemble Jazz music.

How Did Your Mom Influence Your Love of Jazz and Music? Share with us in the comments below, on our Facebook page (or your own, tagging @KSDS San Diego) or Twitter @Jazz88 and we will update this post with some of your images and thoughts about Mom and Jazz. And then, make plans to celebrate Mother's Day with Sunday Blues Brunch at Proud Mary's and the Sunday Jazz Jam Session at Old Venice Restaurant

The students at Napoli learn about a wide variety of topics in the jazz realm, including scales, reading, theory, repertoire, and improvisation. Our jazz music lessons take our students through the greats, including Joplin and Gershwin. In preparation for Jazz Appreciation Month, the students were asked who some of their favorite artists were, then the staff worked to put it all together into the first Jazz 88.3 Guest Blog Post...at least that I know of ;) Jazz 88 has taken the YouTube video's selected by Napoli as illustrating each of the artists repertoire and put them into a playlist on the Jazz 88.3 YouTube Channel (SUBSCRIBE!)

Jazz An American Art Form Swings Harder in San Diego Thanks To Ella Fitzgerald
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: April 24, 2015
San Diego’s Jazz 88.3 Jazz88.org has dedicated a gift from the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation to further the outreach of “Jazz An American Art Form” (JAAAF). JAAAF is a 45 minute presentation about the birth and development of Jazz and Blues, scaled for elementary and middle school students.  JAAAF was created by San Diegan and world-renowned bassist, Rob Thorsen and features a world-class lineup of San Diego musicians including Gilbert Castellanos trumpet, Bob Boss guitar, and Richard Sellers drums. Working with Young Audiences of San Diego, who schedules and places a variety of  enrichment programs for schools around the county, Jazz 88.3 underwrites a portion of the cost of JAAAF for Title I schools, schools that are often strapped financially.  

Jazz An American Art Form Swings Harder in San Diego Thanks To Ella Fitzgerald

Ella Fitzgerald and San Diego have long and deep ties, from her earliest appearances here in the late 1930’s at venues like the Mission Beach Ballroom and through her celebrated accompanists who lived here and still make San Diego home.  And to keep the birthday celebration swinging, San Diego’s Jazz 88.3 on-air hosts share their thoughts on "Lady Ella" and will be curating some of their favorites tunes featuring the “Queen of Jazz” for you all day Saturday, April 25, the 98th Birthday of “The First Lady of Jazz” and in the weeks ahead.

This Is Jazz 2015 Celebrates Womens History Month with Women In Jazz in Carlsbad
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: March 11, 2015
This is Jazz! 2015, a partnership between the City of Carlsbad Cultural Arts Office and San Diego's Jazz 88.3, continues Saturday, March 14 at 4PM in Carlsbad City Library's Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium with a celebration of Women's History Month as San Diego's Queen of Boogie Woogie (and Jazz 88.3 weekend host) Sue Palmer and Jazz 88.3 host Janine Harty present "Women In Jazz". 


The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz says ""Women have participated on every instrument, in every style, and in every era of jazz history. Yet, with the notable exception of singers and a number of pianists, female jazz musicians have been continuously overlooked in the most prestigious areas of jazz practice, marketing, and documentation." Sue and Janine attempt to set the record straight with a program illustrating, through both music and words, the contribution of women in Jazz from pre-1920's through today.

    San Diego's Chase Morrin Wins Jazz Education Network 2015 Student Composition Showcase Award
    Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: January 16, 2015
    San Diego's Chase Morrin was awarded the Jazz Education Network's (JEN) 2015 Student Composition Showcase winner at JEN's January 7-10, 2015 conference at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. His composition "Three Brahmin" was one of 4 works chosen by a panel of 4 adjudicators from 24 submissions and was performed at the conference by the world-renowed, Washington D.C.-based Alan Blaylock Orchestra. Chase is no newcomer to awards, especially since he had a small combo composition win at the 2012 JEN conference! The JEN Student Composition Showcase, designed to spotlight young jazz composers, gives students an opportunity to have an original composition recognized and performed at the International level. The winners of the 2015 competition also had the newly added benefit of a private mentoring session with a leader in the Jazz field. Chase's reaction to the award, 

    "This year was especially exciting and different than the 2012 JEN, first, because my big band chart won apposed to a small combo piece. This meant Alan's Orchestra played my piece which was a real privilege. Second, this year they paired the composers with mentors to chat about music, the future, etc. I was paired with Ellen Rowe. She was incredibly kind and gave me some great advice. I really enjoyed talking with her. "

    Before heading back to continue his studies at Harvard, Chase will be performing at Dizzy's San Diego TONIGHT, Friday, 1/16 at 8pm with the trio he performed with during a separate session at the JEN conference, including Justin Grinnell bass and Charlie Weller drums. 

    Here is the performance of Chase's winning piece "Three Brahmin" by the Alan Blaylock Orchestra,
