JONES Elvin

JONES ELVIN, RAY (DR).

Pontiac, Michigan. 9/9/1927. – 18/5/2004.

Batterista che meglio di altri ha rappresentato il percussionismo africano. Egli è il minore dei fratelli Jones ed ha iniziato a suonare con i fratelli, poi nell’orchestra dell’esercito ed in club di Detroit. Nel 1955 ha partecipato al Festival di Newport con Charles Mingus. Nel 1956 si è trasferito a New York dove ha accompagnato Bud Powell, ha suonato poi con Pepper Adams, Donald Byrd, Tyree Glenn e Harry Edison. Nel 1960 è entrato nel gruppo di John Coltrane e sino al 1965 ha avuto con lui un rapporto quasi ininterrotto. Ha collaborato anche con Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Tommy Flanagan, Gil Evans, Julian Priester, Lee Konitz, Tony Scott, Phineas Newborn, McCoy Tyner, Stan Getz, Steve Lacy, Benny Wallace, Joe Farrell, George Coleman, Dave Liebman, Steve Grossman, Frank Foster, Pat LaBarbera, Andrew White, Wilbur Little, Gene Perla, Andy McCloud, Annibal Peterson, Lew Soloff, Masabumi Kikushi. Negli anni ’70 ha formato vari gruppi, tra cui l’Elvin Jones Jazz Machine ed il Jazz Group, con i quali ha fatto moltissime tournée e ha partecipato a moltissimi Festival. Egli ha introdotto una nuova tecnica di accompagnamento, un nuovo linguaggio post bop. Egli disegna una rete fittissima di figure poliritmiche ed in questo è stato un caposcuola. Batterista potente, maestoso, la sua è una presenza importante nei gruppi con i quali ha suonato. Anche per lui come per tanti altri grandi jazzisti vi è stato un problema di droga che ha condizionato in certi periodi la sua attività. Il suo tallone d’Achille specie negli ultimi anni è stato l’abuso di bevande alcoliche, nonostante il grande aiuto datogli dalla moglie Keiko sia materialmente che musicalmente quale brava arrangiatrice.

JONES ETTA (VC).

Aiken, South Carolina. 25/11/1928. – Mount Vernon, New York. 16/10/2001.

Stabilitasi ancora adolescente ad Harlem, ha affrontato le serate per amatori del Teatro Apollo, cercando di imitare la Holiday o la Carpenter. Ha debuttato professionalmente nelle sale da ballo con l’orchestra di Buddy Johnson nel 1944 e nelle sale di registrazione con Pete Johnson e con Barney Bigard. In seguito ha alternato periodi di intenso lavoro a momenti di completa assenza dalle scene musicali. Nel 1948 ha lavorato con J.C. Heard e dal 1949 al 1952 con Earl Hines. Finalmente nel 1957 è riuscita ad imporsi registrando con la King e con la Prestige. Nel 1960 ha vinto un disco d’oro con”Don’t Go To Stranger”. Nel 1970 ha fatto parte del gruppo di Art Blakey, in seguito ha lavorato soprattutto insieme al marito il sassofonista Houston Person, spesso anche in spettacoli alla TV. Ha svolto la sua attività oltre che negli studi di registrazione, soprattutto nei club. Cantante tra Dinah Washington e Billie Holiday, è stata prevalentemente una elegante e vivida interprete di ballads romantiche di natura blue. Sempre fedele al jazz e alle sue origini afroamericane. Cantante dal timbro di voce chiaro, di un bluesy agrodolce, con impennate piangenti e singhiozzanti. Cantante piena di swing. Ha avuto tra gli accompagnatori, Stan Hope, il trio di Cedar Walton, George Duvivier Frankie Jones, Albert Ammons, Sonny Stitt, Buddy Rich, Billy Taylor, H.Person.
