PARKER Charlie

PARKER CHARLIE, CHARLES JR.CHRISTOPHER. (SA)

Kansas City, Kansas. 29/8/1920. – New York. 12/31955.

Nel 1927 i genitori si sono trasferiti a Kansas City nel Missouri dove egli ha studiato anche musica nelle scuole pubbliche. Ha studiato il sax baritono e a quattordici anni ha suonato in una orchestra studentesca. Ha debuttato professionalmente nel 1936 con Lawrence Keyes. Intanto è passato al saxalto regalatogli dalla madre. Ha suonato con le orchestre di Tommy Douglas, Buster Smith, George E.Lee. Nel 1938 ha suonato con Harlan Leonard, poi con Jay McShann nel 1940, con Earl Hines nel 1943 e con Billy Eckstine nel 1944. Ha collaborato anche con Noble Sissle, Andy Kirk, Cootie Williams, Ben Webster, Billy Eckstine, Slim Gaillard. Con Dizzy Gillespie (conosciuto mentre suonavano insieme nelle orchestre di Hines e di Eckstine) ha messo su un gruppo col quale hanno lavorato a Los Angeles ed a New York. In questo periodo insieme a Charlie Christian, Thelonious Monk, Kenny Clarke, Max Roach ed altri musicisti, dopo le ore di lavoro, si riunivano al Minton’s Playhouse di Harlem per jam session, dando vita alla nuova concezione armonica, ritmica e melodica che ha assunto il nome onomatopeico di be-bop. Una rivoluzione che ha cambiato completamente il modo di suonare tradizionale. Lasciato Gillespie, ha formato un proprio gruppo. Ha inciso con Howard Mc Ghee, con Miles Davis nel 1953. La sua attività è stata interrotta continuamente per problemi mentali conseguenti l’uso smodato di alcoolici e droga. Dopo aver trascorso un periodo di cura nella clinica di Camarillo è ritornato alla musica e ha lavorato prevalentemente a New York. Ha partecipato a numerose tournée con la JATP e in Europa dove ha riscosso un grande successo. Ha continuato a cercare rifugio nella droga, cosa che purtroppo lo ha portato alla morte. E’ deceduto nell’Hotel Stanhope, nell’appartamento della baronessa del jazz Pannonica Rothschild de Konenigswarter che lo ospitava, aveva 35 anni ma ne dimostrava il doppio. Ha gettato le basi per il nuovo modo di suonare il jazz, le sue innovazioni sono valide ancora oggi. Solista in anticipo sui tempi, si racconta che nel 1937 il mentre stavano suonando, il batterista Jo Jones arrivò a tirargli un piatto sul piede per invitarlo andarsene. Musicista dalla grande genialità e personalità, con Louis Armstrong è stato senz’altro il più grande solista che il jazz abbia avuto. Strumentista dal solismo aggressivo, profondamente emotivo e dalla sonorità toccante. Soprannominato Yardbird ed in seguito solo Bird perché goloso di pollo fritto. Una vita vissuta intensamente ed in modo eccessivo, una vita per il sassofono e per la nuova musica.

PARKER EDDIE (FL-COMP)

Liverpool, Gran Bretagna. 28/5/1959.

Figlio d’arte. Ha iniziato a suonare in gruppi rock nella sua città. Ha conosciuto il jazz mentre frequenta la York University e ha debuttato con Django Bates con il quale si è trasferito a Londra. In seguito ha lavorato con John Stevens e con i “Loose Tubes”. Mentre lavora ha continuato a studiare ed ha frequentare corsi vari. Nel 1991 ha suonato in Sud Africa con Bheki Msleku e con lui ha anche inciso. Si è esibito anche con un suo gruppo composto dal chitarrista John Parricelli, dal pianista Pete Saberton, dal bassista Steve Watts e dal batterista Roy Dodds. Si è dimostrato anche un ottimo compositore, in tale veste ha lavorato per i “Loose Tubes”e per l’”Apollo Saxophone Quartet”nel 1995.chiusura

PARKER ERROL, RAPHAEL, RALPH, SCHECROUN. (P)

Orano, Algeria. 30/10/1930. – New York. 2/7/1998.

Ha iniziato a studiare il pianoforte a 14 anni. Nel 1947 si è trasferito a Parigi dove studia da scultore e frequenta l’ambiente del jazz della città. Ha registrato con Kenny Clarke, James Moody e Django Reinhardt. Nel 1951 lascia la musica per tornare a studiare e laurearsi nel 1955. Tornato alla musica ha suonato e registrato con Don Byas nel 1956 e nel 1958. Nel 1960 ha cambiato il nome in Erroll Parker in omaggio ai suoi due idoli musicali Erroll Garner e Charlie Parker ed ha registrato per diverse case discografiche. In un incidente di macchina ha subito una grave menomazione alla spalla che lo ha costretto a modificare il suo modo di suonare il pianoforte. Arrivato a New York nel 1968, qui ha lavorato in trio con Reggie Workman e Billy Hart al “Top” ed al “Gate”. Nel 1969 ha suonato in un gruppo di rhyth-and-blues. Nel 1971 ha fondato anche una etichetta la “Sahara”. Nel 1973 ha guidato il gruppo “Sunday”, nel quale suonava la batteria con risultati apprezzabili, in concerti a New York e al Festival di Tabarka in Tunisia. Pianista di buon livello, che non ha mai pensato di plasmare il suo stile sui suoi idoli. Ha anche registrato con questo gruppo. Egli riesce a trasferire nelle sue interpretazioni i suoi concetti armonici ottenendo qualcosa di molto personale. Pianista che possiede una mano sinistra poderosa che ricorda molto Garner.
