Diana Krall has had a long time fascination with bossa nova, a type of music which perfectly suits her sophisticated yet sensual style. This culminated in her new studio album Quiet Nights (released by Verve in spring 2009) and in this stunning concert filmed in the home of the bossa nova, Rio de Janeiro, in November 2008

Ellington At Newport 1956 Often regarded as the best performance of his career, in 1956, Duke Ellington and his band recorded their historic concert at the Newport Jazz Festival, revitalizing Ellington’s waning career. Jazz promoter George Wein describes the 1956 concert as “the greatest performance of Ellington’s career… It stood for everything that jazz had been and could be.” Ellington had lately been connecting the songs “Diminuendo in Blue” and “Crescendo in Blue” in a medley via a tenor solo from saxophonist Paul Gonsalves. At Newport, Gonsalves summoned a 27-chorus workout so inspired and transcendent that the audience was practically rioting by the time he had finished. Orchestra and audience both remained at a fever pitch for the rest of the show (vividly captured on the live album Ellington at Newport),

From the jazzpages personal archives, I bring you the intriguing documentary ‘The Universal Mind Of Bill Evans’. Several years ago, Rhapsody released a 21-minute video called ‘Bill Evans On The Creative Process’, a badly edited reduction of a 1966 TV program introduced by Steve Allen, the first host of the now famous ‘Tonight Show’. This short film is a restoration of the original 45-minute telecast. Here is Evans, his hair slicked back, his terrible teeth uncapped, a cigarette waving in the air, in intense conversation with his composer brother Harry Evans (a professor of music at Louisiana State University) on the nature of creativity in jazz.

This documentary features in-depth discussion of Evans’ internal process of song interpretation, improvisation, and repertoire. Through demonstration on the piano, Bill uses the song ‘Star Eyes’ to illustrate his own conception of solo piano and how to interpret and expand upon the melody and underlying chord structure.

Onstage, Evans was famously reticent about speaking, but here he’s surprisingly, stirringly provocative.

This album consists of the tracks Baker recorded especially for the Bruce Weber documentary `Let’s get lost’ – a retrospective of the life of the great horn player and vocalist. Baker’s life was troubled – his drug addiction is legendary, and ultimately caused his death, directly or indirectly, as the individual chooses to view the events. His musical genius is indisputable – and these recordings are an incredible witness to that. The group accompanying Baker (featured here on trumpet & vocals) is a small one: Frank Strazzeri (piano), John Leftwich (bass), Ralph Penland (drums & percussion) and Nicola Stilo (guitar & flute).

On the all-too-rare occasions when jazz gets an outing on television, many viewers make inevitable, and often unfavourable, comparisons with ‘Jazz 625′. A well-informed presenter, a superb sound balance and an uncluttered approach to camera work and direction all combined to set a gold standard in the televisual representation of jazz. It was also in the right place at the right time. The end of the long-standing deadlock between the Musicians’ Union and the American Federation of Musicians meant that big names from the US were coming over to Britain for the first time since the 1930’s.

Many shows of its era are ill-represented in the BBC archives, as they were either junked after transmission or, if broadcast live, not recorded at all. Happily, this is not the case with ‘Jazz 625’. With video tape recording still in its infancy, machines were in heavy demand. So, many programmes, particularly in the drama field, were ‘telerecorded’ onto 35mm film, from a feed of the studio output. This method made editing a lot easier, and has aided the survival of programmes recorded in this way.

Recorded at the BBC Studios, London, on March 19th, 1965

“Jazz music objectifies America. It’s an art form that can give us a painless way of understanding ourselves. The real power of Jazz and the innovation of Jazz, is that a group of people can come together and create art, improvised art, and can negotiate their agendas with each other. And that negotiation is the art. Bach improvised all the time, and he did improvise, but he never looked at the second viola and said ‘Let’s play the Ein Feste Burg.’ They were not gonna do that. Whereas in Jazz, I could get together, I could go to Milwaukee tomorrow, and there’d be three musicians in a bar at two thirty in the morning. And I’ll say, ‘What you want to play, man? Let’s play some blues.’ Well, all four of us are going to start playing. Everyone will start copping and playing and listening. You never know what they’re gonna do. So, that’s our art. And the four of us can now have a dialogue. We can have a conversation. We can speak to each other in the language of music.”

The only documentary portrait of the greatest jazz pianist ever. Includes rare photographs, interviews, and more.
Art Tatum: The Art of Jazz Piano is still the only documentary portrait of the greatest jazz pianist ever. Using photographs and some rare footage of Tatum and his contemporaries, the film reconstructs his genius. Included are interviews with musicians who played with him or who were influenced strongly by him: Guitarists Tiny Grimes & Les Paul, and pianists Marian McPartland, Hank Jones, Dick Hyman and George Shearing. Their reminiscences and demonstrations underline Tatum’s status as the “musician’s musician.”
