SHAW ARTIE ARTHUR ARSHAWSKY (CL)

New York 23/5/1910. – Spagna, 30/12/2004.

E’ cresciuto a New Haven nel Connecticut, ed ha iniziato a suonare l’ukulele, a dodici anni il sassofono e a 15 anni ha fatto le prime esperienze nell’orchestra di Johnny Cavallaro, dove ha iniziato anche a suonare il clarinetto. Dal 1927 al 1929 ha lavorato a Cleveland, dove ha fatto il direttore artistico e l’arrangiatore per Austin Wylie, poi ha fatto una tournée con Irving Aaronson. Nel 1929 si è trasferito a Chicago suonando con Paul Specht e con Red Nichols. Nell’ stesso periodo, ha scoperto le musiche di Debussy e Stravinsky, importanti per la sua maturazione musicale. Andato con Aaronson a New York, ha partecipato a jam session ad Harlem e dal 1931 al 1935 ha lavorato freelance e ha registrato con Billy Holiday e con Bunny Berigan. Nel 1936 ha allestito la sua orchestra e sull’onda del grande successo di vendite ottenuto dalla sua incisione “Beguin the Beguine”, si è affermato come una delle migliori orchestre swing, suonando il jazz di big band bianca più raffinato dell’epoca. Nella sua orchestra ha voluto diversi grandi solisti di colore, tra i tanti la voce di Billy Holiday. All’inizio degli anni ’40 ha lavorato a Hollywood. Gran parte dei componenti la sua orchestra durante la seconda guerra mondiale è venuta a suonare in Europa sotto la guida di Sam Donahue con il nome di U. S. Navy Band. Nel 1944 ha voluto orientare la sua orchestra più sul jazz includendo Roy Eldridge, Herbie Stewart, Dodo Marmarosa e Barney Kessel ed in seguito sono nati i Gramercy Five, formazione di jazz che ha diretto fino al 1953, che è stata una anticipazione della “Third Stream”. Nel 1951 inspiegabilmente ha iniziato a ridurre l’attività, dedicandosi alla letteratura. Ha scritto una limpida autobiografia ”The trouble With Cinderella: An Outline Of Identity” nella quale svela anche certi retroscena del mondo musicale, che all’epoca hanno creato un certo scalpore. Ha scritto altri romanzi e ha tenuto conferenze nelle Università. Durante questo periodo la sua orchestra è passata sotto la direzione di diversi batteristi: George Wettling, Cliff Leeman, Buddy Rich. Si stabilisce in Spagna dove ha condotto anche un’azienda agricola. Clarinettista che non aveva come solista lo swing poderoso di Benny Goodman ma era dotato di una tecnica sopraffina. Soprattutto grande bandleader. Ha inanellato otto matrimoni e otto divorzi.

SHAW GENE, EUGENE CLARNECE (TP)

Detroit, Michigan. 16/6/1926. – New York. 1973.

A quattro anni ha preso lezioni di pianoforte e poi di trombone. Nel 1948 ha ascoltato Dizzy Gillespie, ne è folgorato e passa alla tromba. Ha studiato armonia, teoria e composizione alla Detroit Institute of Music. Ha iniziato a suonare nei club, ha collaborato con Wardell Gray, con Lucky Thompson, con Kenny Burrell, Yusef Lateef, Tommy Flanagan e per pochissimo tempo con Lester Young. Si è trasferito a New York insieme a Young e qui nel 1957 è arrivato l’incontro più importante della sua vita con Charles Mingus. E’ entrato nel suo gruppo e con lui ha esordito al Great South Bay Festival di Long Island. Ha inciso con lui uno dei suoi capolavori ”Tijana Moods”. Per una incomprensione ed un violento diverbio con lo stesso Mingus, ha fracassato la tromba ed ha abbandonato la musica. Nel 1962 è tornato all’attività, ha messo su un quartetto, con i, quale ha lavorato nei Club di Chicago, ha registrato diversi album, ma comunque non ha ottenuto il successo sperato e forse meritato. Non se ne conosce nemmeno la data della morte, che dovrebbe essere avvenuta all’inizio degli anni ’70. E’ stato uno dei grandi dimenticati del jazz, ha perseguito sempre una grande coerenza tra musica e vita.

SHAW WOODY HERMAN, JR. (TP)

Laurimburg, North Carolina. 24/12/1944. – New York. 9/5/ 1989.

Il padre ha cantato in un gruppo Gospel. A undici anni ha iniziato a suonare il flicorno e poi ha studiato la tromba classica. E’ entrato nella fanfara dei “Junior Elks” e poi nei “Masonic Onder Drum And Bugle Corps”. Nel 1957 è entrato nell’orchestra di Brady Hodge. Ha avuto modo di suonare con musicisti di passaggio, come: Kenny Dorham, Hank Mobley, Larry Young e Tyrone Washington. Ha frequentato la Arts High School di Newark e nel 1962 ha fatto una tournée con Rufus Jones. Ha suonato con Willie Lobo, Chick Corea, Larry Gales, Joe Farrell e Garnett Brown, però solo nel 1963 ha raggiunto la notorietà entrando nel gruppo di Eric Dolphy. Nel 1964 si è trasferito in Francia ed a Parigi ha avuto modo di suonare con Kenny Clarke, Bud Powell, Art Taylor, Johnny Griffin, Larry Young, ha messo su un gruppo con Nathan Davis. Tornato negli States nel 1965 ha suonato con Horace Silver, con Jackie McLean nel 1967, ha partecipato al ”Tones For Joan’Bones”di Corea. Ha collaborato poi con McCoy Tyner nel 1968, con Max Roach nel 1969, con Joe Henderson nel 1970. Ha fondato in California un gruppo con Bobby Hutcherson, ha registrato il suo primo disco da leader ”Blackstone Legacy”, ha messo su un gruppo con Steve Turre ed ha fatto parte dell’orchestra di Gil Evans. Nel 1972 è tornato a New York, ha suonato con Art Blakey, ha lavorato freelance, con Herbie Hancock, Azar Lawrence, Buster Williams, Cecil McBee, Onaje Allen Gumbs, Tony Water e Guillherme Franco, con Louis Hayes/Junior Cook Quintet. In seguito ha codiretto un gruppo con Hayes, ha suonato poi con Dexter Gordon nel 1977, con Lionel Hampton, Louis Haynes, con Kenny Garrett nel 1984, con Charlie Rouse, con Benny Golson nel 1985. Ha organizzato nel 1982 un ottimo quintetto. Purtroppo la sua vista peggiorava sempre più, sino a portarlo alla cecità completa e questa è stata la causa di un grave incidente per il quale dovette subire l’amputazione di un braccio. E’ deceduto dopo qualche mese per complicazioni polmonari. In possesso di una grande equilibrio tecnico molto espressivo, mai soddisfatto sempre teso al perfezionamento, ha raggiunto negli anni’80 il massimo della notorietà. Il suo timbro era molto dolce ed in questo ricordava molto Clifford Brown.
