|What an honor it is to have the great Jazz Drummer Louis Hayes on the Seville Theatre stage at San Diego City College for Jazz Live San Diego, Tuesday May 10, 2011 8 to 10 PM PT. I'm going to be Live blogging the show on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jazz-Live-San-Diego/148121091920426) and Twitter@Jazz88JazzLive (http://Twitter.com/Jazz88JazzLive). |
To understand a little of the importance of tonight, Louis Hayes at age 18 replaced Art Blakey in Horace Silver's quintet when Hard Bop and Funk Bop and Soul Jazz were making a audience-centric directional turn from the BeBop era (with more experimental, exploratory, artist-centric, turns being made by Trace, Cecil, Ornette, and others). Louis was right there at this nexus. He played with Cannonball Adderly's Quintet on what has been called the first "soul-jazz" album, "The Cannonball Adderly Quintet Live in San Francisco" (which ushered in it's own era of music and live, audience-included, recording). Here are a few links that helped me:

“BONES & TONES” (World sounds, all originals by band members).
AllAboutJazz.com (Dan Bilawsky): "...it's
safe to say that these four musicians have seen it all, and this
breadth and depth of experience helps bring new life to the
under-explored jazz-world music percussion ensemble format utilized to
great effect on Bones & Tones."
BILL ANSCHELL – “FIGMENTS” (Solo outing by this pianist, with an eclectic mix of old and new standards).
Origin Records: Throughout Figments, pianist Bill Anschell’s creative, abstract approach
takes each song to unexpected places without ever leaving his audience
behind. Self-recorded over a series of late nights, after gigs, when
Anschell’s "internal supervisor had clocked out." The result is twelve
genre-bending, near stream-of-consciousness takes covering a mix of jazz
standards and pop songs from the 60s and 70s. Highlights include Arlo
Guthrie’s protest song "Alice’s Restaurant," a meditative take on the
Rodgers and Hart standard "It Never Entered My Mind," and a
prepared-piano version of Joni Mitchell’s "Big Yellow Taxi."
