WOODS Phil

WOODS PHIL PHILIP WELLS. (SA)

Springfield, Massachussets. 2/11/1931 – 29/09/2015.

Senz’altro l’alto sassofonista più parkeriano della storia del jazz. Ha studiato il sax alto e a dodici anni ha preso lezioni da Lennie Tristano e nel 1948 ha frequentato la Manhattan School of Music e la Julliard School a New York. Nel 1954 ha iniziato la carriera nell’orchestra di Charlie Barnet, la sua attività è proseguita con quelle di Neal Hefti e di Richard Hayman. Nel 1955 ha registrato con Jimmy Raney ed il suo primo album come leader. L’anno dopo è entrato nell’orchestra di George Wallington. Ha collaborato con Al Haig, Donald Byrd, ha suonato al Birdland con Frederich Gulda e con i Birdland Stars. Ha fatto parte della grande orchestra di Dizzy Gillespie. Nel 1957 ha messo su con Gene Quill il gruppo “Phil and Quill Quintet”. Ha suonato nelle orchestre di Buddy Rich e in quella di Quincy Jones dal 1959 al 1961. Ha registrato la sua composizione “Rights Of Swing”, ha collaborato con Jimmy Smith e nel 1962 è entrato nell’orchestra di Benny Goodman nella tournée in Unione Sovietica. Ha registrato con Oliver Nelson, con George Russell e con Thelenious Monk. Nel 1968 si è trasferito in Europa dove ha soggiornato a Londra e a Parigi. Ha fatto parte della Clark/Boland Band e ha fondato la “European Rhythm Machine”, gruppo che è stato in assoluto uno dei migliori gruppi europei di tutti i tempi, con il quale si è esibito nei club, partecipando a concerti e lavorando alla radio ed alla TV. Nel dicembre del 1972 è rientrato negli States dove ha diretto un quartetto insieme al pianista Pete Robinson, ha registrato con Aretha Franklin nel 1973. In seguito si è dedicato più alla composizione ed all’insegnamento. Nel 1983 ha rimesso su un gruppo che sarà forse uno dei suoi migliori di sempre, insieme a Hal Galper, Steve Gilmore, Bill Goodwin e Tom Harrell. Ha inoltre anche collaborato con Fabio Ambrosetti, Meredith D’Ambrosio, C.Shoemake e con molti musicisti italiani. Alto sassofonista considerato uno dei più importanti eredi di Charlie Parker. Nella sua carriera, vita ed arte tendono a confondersi, difatti ha sposato la vedova di Parker Chan Richardson. Vita ed arte vertiginosi come il suo stile musicale. Musicista impetuoso dalla sonorità insinuante, conclamato come uno dei migliori solisti di alto del jazz moderno, ma anche come un ottimo clarinettista. E’ stato uno dei solisti di sax alto che meglio ha trasposto il sound di Parker nel jazz contemporaneo. Queste sue doti gli vengono soprattutto per aver accumulato le esperienze più varie, come la scuola di Tristano, il cool di Jimmy Raney, il bebop di George Wallington e la sua militanza in big band come quelle di Dizzy Gillespie e Quincy Jones.

Mentre a New York dal 1976 al 1977 con Milt Buckner, con Harold Ashby, Norris Turney, Booty Wood, Aaron Bell ed ha registrato con Teddy Wilson, Buddy Tate, Slam Stewart ed altri nei “Great Height”nel 1983. A Parigi con Steve Lacy, con Guy Lafitte, Marcel Zanini e Francois Biesman. Le precarie condizioni di salute lo portano a suonare sempre meno. Pur succedendo su un trono scomodo, per i grandi batteristi che lo hanno preceduto alla guida della sezione ritmica dell’orchestra di Ellington, egli non li ha fatti rimpiangere.chiusura

Nel 1989 Sclavis ha lasciato il gruppo. Gruppo di free jazz e musica improvvisata contemporanea. chiusura


WORKSONG.

Letteralmente: canto di lavoro. Forma musicale che precorre il jazz, esso era cantato dagli schiavi nelle piantagioni del Sud, canti che con il loro ritmo molto semplice li aiutava a lavorare più facilmente e con maggiore rapidità, ma soprattutto li distraeva dalla loro condizione.chiusura


WORLD BASS VIOLIN ENSEMBLE.

Gruppo composto da sette contrabbassi, chiaramente gruppo messo insieme in sala di incisione. Anche se possa sembrare solo una originalità la musica che ne scaturisce non è affatto noiosa, anzi contiene un calore ed un senso dell’humor notevole. Brian Smith è il direttore musicale del gruppo ed a lui va il merito di aver saputo creare delle composizioni e degli arrangiamenti proprio adatti allo strumento ed ai solisti.
