WILSON TEDDY, THEODORE SHAW (P)

Austin, Texas. 24/11/1912. – New Britain, Connecticut. 1/8/1986.

Si è avvicinato alla musica sotto la guida dei genitori. E’ cresciuto a Tuskegee, in Alabama. Dall’età di otto anni ha studiato seriamente pianoforte classico e violino. Si è avvicinato al jazz copiando gli assoli di Heral HInes e Fats Waller dai dischi. Ha anche studiato per breve tempo il clarinetto e l’oboe. Ha frequentato il Talladega College. Nel 1929 si è stabilito a Detroit dove ha esordito con Speed Webb nel 1929 sino al 1931, ha sostituito Art Tatum nel quartetto dei “Milton Senior”a Toledo nell’Ohio e con esso si è trasferito a Chicago nel 1931. Qui ha lavorato con Erskine Tate, Clarence Moore, Eddie Mallory e per soli tre mesi ha fatto parte dell’Orchestra di Louis Armstrong. In seguito ha suonato con Jimmie Noone. Nel 1933 è stato Johnny Hammond a convincerlo ad andare a New York, dove suona con Benny Carter, Mezz Mezzrow, con i Chocolate Dandies, Willie Bryant, con i “Charioteers”, un gruppo Gospel ed ha inciso con Red Norvo nel 1934. Nel 1935 su incarico di John Hammond ha organizzato dei gruppi di studio per incisioni con la Brunswig, ha raggruppato i migliori musicisti disponibili con i quali ha accompagnato anche Billie Holiday. Nel 1936 è entrato nel trio di Benny Goodman con il quale ha collaborato sino al 1939. Organizza una sua orchestra che però ha dovuto sciogliere dopo un anno. Questo è stato il periodo più importante della sua vita musicale. Acquista vasta notorietà, ha fondato la Teddy Wilson School for Pianist e ha diretto degli ottimi complessini. Nel 1946 ha lavora alla CBS ed ha insegnato alla Julliard School di New York. Continua a suonare e registrare con Benny Goodman e tiene diversi concerti in Europa. Nell’arco della sua lunga vita musicale Wilson ha diretto una miriade di grandi musicisti. Ha avuto inoltre notevole abilità nel tracciare degli esemplari accompagnamenti per molte cantanti come Mildred Bailey, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Lena Horne. Figura solida e coerente della storia del jazz, un raffinato solista dal tocco delicato e dalla tecnica precisa e nitida. Nel 1945 ha inciso anche con Parker e Gillespie ma senza adattarsi al nuovo jazz. Ha inciso anche con gli pseudonimi di Theodocius e Fingers Mc Digits.

WINCHESTER LEM, LEMUEL DAVIS (VIB)

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 19/3/1928. – Indianapolis, Indiana. 13/1/1961.

Suo nonno è stato un batterista. Egli ha fatto le scuole a Wilmington a Delaware, dove ha stusiato il sassofono ed il flauto e nel 1947 il vibrafono. Negli anni ’50 ha lavorato come poliziotto a Wilmington e nel tempo libero ha suonato il vibrafono. Nel 1958 ha partecipato al Festival di Newport invitato da Leonard Feather e nello stesso anno ha registrato il suo primo disco da leader ed ha fatto parte del trio di Ramsey Lewis. Nel 1960 si è dimesso dalla polizia per suonare a tempo pieno. Ha guidato un suo quintetto ed ha registrato con Oliver Nelson, Shirley Scott, Brother Jack McDuff, Etta Jones e Johnny Hammond. E’ ormai uno dei migliori vibrafonisti della sua generazione. Egli ha sviluppato uno stile molto personale e sarebbe diventato un vibrafonista di primo piano se la sua carriera non fosse stata stroncata da una morte violenta mentre si cimentava alla roulette russa. nche se il suo modello era Jackson,aveva più velocità ed un suono più corposo,oltre ad uno swing elegante.
