JORDAN Duke

JORDAN DUKE, IRVING SIDNEY. (P).

Brooklyn, New York. 1/4/1922. – Valby, Copenhagen, Danimarca. 8/8/2006.

Pianista e compositore che ha saputo seguire l’evoluzione del jazz dalla swing era al be- bop. E’ cresciuto ascoltando Teddy Wilson e Art Tatum e ricevendo lezioni private. Ha iniziato a suonare nella Brooklyn Automotive High, la banda della scuola, ed il primo ingaggio professionale è stato con il trombonista Steve Pullian, al New York World’s Fair nel 1939, poi con Al Cooper al Savoy Sultan’s, nel 1941 con Clark Monroe e nel 1946 con l’orchestra di Roy Eldridge. Ha fatto parte dei Savoy Sultan di Coleman Hawkins e poi con Al Copper e al Three Deuces con Teddy Walter, qui tra gli spettatori c’era Charlie Parker che, dopo averlo ascoltato, lo ha voluto al suo fianco nelle famose registrazioni del 29 ottobre 1947, con Miles David, Max Roach e Tommy Potter. Per tre anni ha collaborato con Parker ed insieme a lui ha suonato al Birdland nel 1952. Ha fatto parte della corte di Norman Granz la Jazz At The Philarmonic, ha suonato con Stan Getz, con Oscar Pettiford. Negli anni ’50 ha collaborato con Cecil Payne, Gene Ammons, Sonny Stitt, Art Farmer, Gigi Gryce, Cecil Payne e con Barney Wilen. Nel 1955 ha registrato con un suo trio; si è trasferito in Europa, a Parigi ha collaborato con Jacques Marray alla realizzazione della colonna sonora del film ”Kes Liaison Dangereuses”. Dal 1962 al 1973 la carriera di Jordan ha subito un arresto, dovuto a problemi di droga e, per vivere, è stato costretto a fare il conducente di taxi. Nel 1973 è riuscito a liberarsi dai problemi con l’aiuto di una organizzazione danese ed ha fatto il suo ritorno all’attività con una tournée europea che gli ha consentito anche di registrare con Dexter Gordon, Kenny Clarke, Kenny Dorham, Johnny Griffin, Barney Kessel, Chris Woods, Red Mitchell ed altri. La lunga sosta non ha intaccato la sua arte; anzi il fraseggio è rimasto quello pulito ed essenziale di sempre. Tornato in auge si è esibito nei migliori locali di New York, ha collaborato con Clark Terry, ha inciso con Julius Watkins e con Charles McPherson. Pianista dinamico e dalla improvvisazione decontratta. E’ stato uno dei primi ed uno dei più originali pianisti di bop, un bop dal senso melodico, speciale e inconsueto. Ha dato nelle sue esecuzioni sempre molto valore alla melodia, alla raffinatezza nella improvvisazione essenziale, capace di fare apprezzare i due volti di essa quello classico e quello moderno del blues. Solista dall’attacco potente, dalla esecuzione dinamica e istintiva, piena anche di swing e ritmo. Nella introduzione dei temi dimostra la sua vena di melodista, quel modo di creare piccole storie all’interno di ogni brano. Ricordando le sue qualità di compositore, un brano fra tutti “Jordu”.

JORDAN LOUIS (AS-VOC-LEA).

Brinkley, Arkansas. 8/7/1908. – Los Angeles, California. 4/2/1975.

Figlio di un maestro di musica, ha iniziato a suonare il clarinetto ed il sassofono del padre. Ha diretto un gruppo scolastico il Rabbit Foots Mintsrels. A 21 anni ha debuttato professionalmente nell’orchestra locale di Jimmy Prior. Poi ha suonato in Arkansas con Ruby Williams, quindi si è trasferito a Filadelfia dove ha suonato con Jim Winters nel 1932 e a New York dal 1933 al 1935 con Charles Gaines, poi con Leroy Smith, Jim Winters, Clarence Williams, Kaiser Marshall, Fats Waller, Stuff Smith, con Chick Webb dal 1936 al 1938 e proprio con Webb che si è affermato definitivamente anche come cantante. A New York ha messo su i “Timpany Five” un piccolo gruppo molto vivace, con tre fiati ed una ritmica shuffle. Il gruppo diventa popolarissimo ad Harlem, ha fatto tournée in Inghilterra ed in Asia. Ha inciso “Choo Ch’boogie” nel 1946, che è stato un disco vendutissimo. E’ stato il vero iniziatore di quello che in seguito è stato etichettato come “rhythm and blues”. Celebri anche i suo duetti vocali con Louis Armstrong, con Bing Crosby e con Ella Fitzgerald. Ha preso parte a numerosi film. Egli ha uno spiccato senso di humor che ha trasferito nella sua musica. Sax alto dalla voce aspra. Molto legato al blues, che però ha liberato dalla malinconia e vi ha immesso il suo umorismo. E’ considerato il precursore del rock and roll.

JORDAN SHEILA JEANETTE DAWSON (VC).

Detroit, Michigan. 18/11/1928.

Jeanette Dawson ha iniziato a cantare all’età di tre anni. Ha studiato pianoforte e canto e a dodici anni è venuta fuori la grande passione per il jazz. Da dilettante ha cantato in un trio locale, pratica lo scat e ha scritto anche le parole sugli assoli di Charlie Parker. Nel 1952 a New York ha sposato uno dei partner preferiti da Parker, il pianista Duke Jordan e spesso ha collaborato con lui. Dopo il divorzio ha iniziato a lavorare da sola, ha inciso con George Russell, ha lavorato nei Club del Greenwich Village e ha ottenuto un contratto con la Blue Note. Ha inciso con Roswell Rudd, Carla Bley, Marcello Melis, Barry Galbraith, ha messo su un quartetto con Steve Kuhn dal 1979 al 1982. Ha organizzato la prima formula sperimentare del duo basso voce con Arild Andersen e Harvie Swartz, nella quale si inventa nuovi spazi di libertà e di allegria ritmica. Ha registrato con Bob Moses, George Gruntz e Cameron Brown. Cantante bianca caposcuola del canto free jazz, ha liberato il modo di cantare dai vecchi canoni ed ha iniziato ad interpretare i song in una maniera nuova aprendo la strada a molte altre sue contemporanee, fra cui Betty Carter, che diventerà anche più famosa di lei e di cui è concittadina. Rispetto proprio alla Carter ha un canto meno sanguigno, più spirituale, più bianco. Cantante attratta dalle nuove armonie, ha un lirismo fragile e inquieto, quasi mistico. Ha conservato il timbro giovanile che accentua talvolta con molto umorismo ed ha sviluppato contemporaneamente un notevole swing. Voce in possesso di una tavolozza vocale dove dolcezza e tensione si mischiano imponendosi come una delle più convinceti poetesse del bebop.

JORGENSMANN THEO. (CL).

Bottrop, Germania Ovest. 29/9/1948.

Ha inizia a studiare il pianoforte, per poi passare al clarinetto che che studia privatamente per diversi anni. Prima di fare la carriera musicale ha lavorato in un laboratorio chimico e ha studiato educazione civica. Ha inizia a suonare in vari vari club e nel 1976 ha messo su il “Clarinet Contrast”, gruppo composto da soli clarinettisti, Perry Robinson, Hans Kumpf e Bern Bern Konrad. Gruppo che ha destato inizialmente curiosità ed in seguito ha avuto un certo successo per l’ottima impostazione sia della tecnica strumentale che per il suono particolare ottenuto sfruttando al massimo le potenzialità dello strumento. Si è cimentato anche nel jazz rock dove ha fatto parte del gruppo ”Out”. Ha esperimentato anche le possibilità elettroniche dello strumento. Ha cercato in un certo senso di continuare l’eredità di Dolphy sul clarinetto basso.
