SHANK Bud

SHANK BUD CLIFFORD EVERETT JR. (SA-FL)

Dayotn, Ohio. 27/5/1926. – San Diego, California. 2/4/2009.

Ha iniziato a studiare musica a dieci anni ed ha frequentato la North Carolina University. Nel 1947 si è trasferito in California dove ha studiato composizione ed arrangiamento sotto la guida di Shorty Rogers e dove ha svolto prevalentemente la sua attività. Ha fatto parte delle orchestre di Charlie Barnet, di Alvino Rey, di Art Money nel 1949 e nel 1951 è entrato a far parte di quella di Stan Kenton, dove ha raggiunto la piena maturità e la notorietà. Ha iniziato il lungo rapporto con i “Laighthouse All Stars” di Howard Rumsey; in questo gruppo ha avuto modo di incidere insieme a Bob Cooper degli originali duetti di flauto ed oboe. Nel 1956 ha messo su un gruppo insieme al pianista Claude Williamson. Nel 1959 ha inciso insieme a Laurindo Almeida il primo esperimento di fusione tra jazz e musica brasiliana. In seguito ha avuto un gruppo con Carmel Jones e dal 1961 si è dedicato al lavoro negli studios. Nel 1974 insieme a Shelly Manne, Ray Brown e Laurindo Almeida ha fondato i “L.A.Four”. Nel 1982 ha partecipato al Festival di Pescara insieme a Shorty Rogers nei redivivi “West Coast Giants”. Ha inoltre inciso e suonato con Chet Baker, Miles Davis, Gerry Mulligan e Bunny Berigan. Nel 1954 si è aggiudicato il New Star Alto Winner e nel 1956 ha vinto tutti i referendum americani come il flautista più popolare. Ottimo solista anche di sax tenore e baritono dalle frasi brevi e stimolanti. Come flautista pochi nel jazz hanno saputo usare tale strumento con la sua maestria e delicatezza. Al sax alto si è ispirato a Charlie Parker raccogliendone l’eredità bop, che ha trasferito come pochi nell’atmosfera della West Coast. E’ diventato con il passare degli anni un punto di riferimento per molti solisti di saxalto per il suo modo di fondere la raffinatezza del cool con il calore del bop parkeriano. In seguito si è concesso qualche licenza nella musica commerciale.

SHANKAR LAKSHMINARAYANA (VIOL.O)

Madras, India. 26/4/1950.

All’età di due anni ha iniziato a suonare il ragas ed a cinque a prendere lezioni di violino. Ama suonare musica Indiana, ma presto è stato coinvolto da quella occidentale. Nel 1969 è andato negli Stati Uniti, dove si è impegnato in diversi generi musicali e a fondere la musica popolare indiana con il jazz. Si è esibito con l’orchestra da camera della Wesleyan University, ha incontrato Ornette Coleman, Jimmy Garrison e John McLaughlin. Nel 1973 ha insegnato a McLaughlin la musica del suo paese e nel 1975 ha messo su e ha codiretto insieme a lui lo” Shakti” un gruppo che è un po’ la sintesi della musica Indiana con il jazz. Nel 1978 lasciato McLaughlin, ha lavorato come solista ed in diversi gruppi sia il violino ed anche i vari strumenti da lui costruiti. Ha registrato anche con Frank Zappa, con Phil Collinse e Peter Gabriel. E’ il musicista indiano che più ha registrato, anche musica classica Indiana.

SHANNON HUGH (VC-P)

De Soto, Missouri. 1921. – New York, 1982.

Cantante attivo a New York, di origini irlandesi. Celebre pianista e cantante da saloon. Cresciuto al culto della Holiday, personaggio che comunica un senso di familiarità. Da decenni è un personaggio internazionale, beniamino dell’alta società da Parigi a Capri, da Manhattan alle Isole Vergini. Voce di baritono che interpreta i grandi della canzone bonariamente con il suo timbro roco, di sughero. Le sue interpretazioni tendono a diventare parlate, a diventare un racconto intimo, autobiografico.
