WATERS ETHEL (VC)

Chester, Pensylvania. 31/10/1896. – Los Angeles, California. 1/9/1977.

Dopo aver cantato in cori di chiesa, ha vinto un concorso per dilettanti ed ha iniziato ad avere successo lavorando in commedie musicali o spettacoli di varietà diretti dal suo futuro marito Eddie Mallory. Si è esibita in molti locali notturni, ha ottenuto anche successo come attrice, interpretando diversi film, come Destino (Tales of Manhattan) Cabin in the sky e Pinky la negra bianca. Ha scritto due autobiografie che hanno riscosso molto successo. Nel 1957 ha abbandonato la musica per dedicarsi alla propaganda religiosa. Le sue doti vocali le consentivano massima adattabilità di esprimersi sia nel blues che nel jazz, nella rivista e nella musica leggera nella quale aveva la capacità di valorizzare al massimo i testi delle canzoni. Nel corso della sua carriera é stata accompagnata da valenti musicisti quali Tommy Dorsey, Bunny Berigan, Benny Carter, Tyree Glenn, Fletcher Henderson, Lovie Austin, Tommy Ladnier, Johnny Dodds, ha cantato con Duke Ellington al Cotton Club. Ha portato al successo il motivo Stormy Weather, ha registrato con Benny Goodman e con James P.Johnson. Ha influenzato ed stata maestra del canto jazz per le generazioni successive, come ha detto Harry Pleasants” con Bessie Smith e Louis Armstrong sono la sorgente di quanto vi é di più valido e caratteristico in America nella canzone leggera.

WATERS MUDDY, MCKINLEY MORGANDIELD (G)

Rolling Forks, Mississippi. 1915. – Chicago, Illinois. 30/4/1983.

Muddy Waters, letteralmente “Acque fangose”. A dieci anni ha imparato a suonare l’armonica, poi ha preso delle lezioni di chitarra dal padre. Rimasto orfano di madre è andato a vivere dalla nonna a Clarkesdale ed è stata, proprio la nonna, a mettergli il soprannome di Muddy Waters. Solo nel 1941 è stato scoperto da Alan Lomax, e le successive incisioni lo rivelarono già un significativo cantante di countryblues. Nel 1943 si è trasferito a Chicago ed ha contribuito alla divulgazione del blues del Delta. Ha avuto effetto rimarchevole sullo sviluppo della musica pop negli anni ’50 e’60.

WATERS PATTY (VC)

Iowa. 11/3/46.

Cantante bianca scoperta dal pianista Ran Blake. Seguace della Merrill, ma dall’esposizione ancora più scarna e ariosa. Vocalist di assoluta concezione free, frequenta piste ancora più difficili dei suoi colleghi, inseguendo il grido dei sassofonisti contemporanei e collocandosi fuori dal ritmo, dall’armonia, dai timbri e dalle tonalità del canto tradizionale. Le sue interpretazioni sono composte da ventosi ululati di testa e raschianti sospiri del diaframma, sibili, gorgoglii e rantoli, tutti in uno stridio agghiacciante.
