Kenny Wheeler Rest In Peace
Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: September 19, 2014
The flugelhorn can sound really nice and one of the most notable practitioners of the instrument has passed away. Kenny Wheeler would open his tunes to interpretation by some of the top Jazz musicians of the time. He was widely admired and it only takes a quick listen to appreciate his accessibility.

Even after review the vibe was cool. Rest In Peace, Kenny Wheeler. We all know the future is now.
  • Gnu High, 1975 recording. Kenny Wheeler with Keith Jarrett, Dave Holland, and Jack DeJohnette. Played the whole thing. Brilliant isn't strong enough. Neither is stunning, nor is mindblowing. Heyoke and Gnu Suite are long pieces but the intensity never waivers. Smatter is only six minutes but its punch is not pulled. Throughout, the artistry is astounding.
  • David Borgo has some new music coming out and the Progressive Nights staff is understandably thrilled. Positive anticipation but I hope the new disc title is easier to say than Micro Temporal Infundibula. Hard to type, even.
  • Taylor Ho Bynum is riding his bike from Canada to Tijuana. Hope to get a word as he zooms past...Stepwise.
Thanks for listening

3 Giant Losses for the Art Form, Daniel, Gerald and Joe
Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: September 15, 2014
The last few week's have provided major blows for Jazz.  We lost one of our very own here in San Diego (Daniel Jackson) but also Gerald Wilson and Joe Sample.  These men were integral to the art form as composers and arrangers.  Their trumpet and piano, respectively, lent to the honest voice of jazz music.  For Gerald, it began in the Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra in 1939 when he replaced the star trumpeter in the group at the time (Sy Oliver). Joe's contribution started in hard bop and grew into many different styles of playing. Both men led bands and forged new roads. Their music and jazz history will preserve forever.

There was something in the air that made hesitation seem inexcusable.
  • The Diminished Triangle by Gerald Wilson was grand and sweeping, varied and flexible, a showcase for strong writing and playing. He contributed greatly, rest in peace.
  • The Great Lake Suite will prove to be problematic because it's pretty deep in the dig/digest/grok sense and it provides endless variables of any/all elements. Wadada Leo Smith, Henry Threadgill, John Lindberg, Jack DeJohnette.
  • Charles Gayle is commitment personified. He is like a laser beam of intention balancing between Larry Roland and Michael TA Thompson.
Thanks for listening
