WALLACE GEORGE.

Clio, Alabama. 25/8/1919. – Montgomety, Alabama. 13/9/1998.

Nome tristemente famoso negli annali del jazz perché è stato negli anni ’50 e ’60 il più duro oppositore alla integrazione razziale. Era proprio un persecutore del mondo del jazz e dei suoi musicisti di colore. Finito sulla sedia a rotelle per ferite d’arma da fuoco, ha riconosciuto i suoi errori ed ha chiesto perdono al popolo nero americano.chiusura

WALLER FATS THOMAS WRIGHT. (P-VC)

New York. 21/5/1904. – Kansas City, Missouri. 15/12/1943.

Figlio di un decano della Chiesa Battista Abissina, la madre pianista e organista egli si è avvicinato al piano a sei anni avendo come maestro James P.Johson. Ha suonato nell’orchestra della scuola diretta da Edgard Sampson, ha vinto un concorso per dilettanti al Roseevelt Theatre ed ha ottenuto il suo primo lavoro come organista al Lincoln Theatre di New York. Nel 1922 ha fatto il suo debutto discografico, ha accompagnato Sara Martin, Alberta Hunter, Anna Jones, Hazel Meyers, Bessie Smith, ha fatto parte dei Luisiana Shugar, poi con Eddie Condon, Erskine Tate, Billy Banks, Jack Teagarden, Ted Lewis, Louis Armstrong, Bud Freeman, Fletcher Henderson e i Mc Kinney’s Cotton Pickers. Le cose migliori di Waller le ha prodotte da solo o con i suoi gruppi: And His Buddies e And His Rhythm. Richiestissimo come solista nei locali notturni di New York e nelle stazioni Radio. E’ stata una delle più pittoresche figure del jazz, uno dei più grandi pianisti, organisti e compositori ed anche cantante. Ha fatto suo il pianismo di James P.Johnson, al quale ha aggiunto un tocco di raffinatezza. Pianista dal suono pieno, ricco ed armonicamente magnifico, pieno di uno swing rilassato. E’ stato un antesignano dell’uso dell’organo e della celesta. Cantante che ha dato ad ogni interpretazione un tocco personale inconfondibile infondendo alle sue esibizioni la propria carica di umorismo. Le sue composizioni tutte di ottimo livello fanno parte stabilmente del repertorio jazzistico. A più di 50 anni dalla sua morte rimane uno dei più popolari artisti della musica in generale, avendo prodotto molta musica gradevole e serena. E’ morto al culmine del successo stroncato da un attacco cardiaco mentre viaggiava in aereo da New York a Kansas City. Con la collaborazione di Andy Razaf ha composto decine di canzoni di successo ed anche una commedia musicale “Early To Bet”. Ha inciso anche con lo pseudonimo di Maurice.

WALLIN PER HENRIK. (P)

Karlsborg, Svezia. 17/7/1946. – Svezia. 15/6/2005.

Ha iniziato in giovane età a studiare il pianoforte e nel 1970 ha deciso di fare il musicista di professione, ha accompagnato dei solisti e ha lavorato in duo con Sven-Ake Johansson, con il quale ha fatto un tour in Germania e occasionalmente ha suonato con Eje Thelin. Ha guidato un trio con il sassofonista Lars-Goran Ulander e il batterista Peter Olsen. Nel 1978 ha avuto un altro trio insieme a Torbjorn Hulterantz e Erik Dahlback. Ha continuato come solista ed in duo con la moglie, l’attrice e scrittrice Saara Salminen. Ha accompagnato anche Steve Reid e Johnny Dyani. Menomato da un incidente d’auto nel 1988 che lo ha costretto su di una sedia a rotelle, ha dovuto limitare la sua attività che ancora convalescente ha ripreso nel 1998 registrando con un trio. Nel 2003 ha ricevuto un premio che in Svezia è la variante del “Django D’Oro”. Musicista importante nel panorama jazzistico svedese d’avanguardia. Musicista dotato di una grande tecnica, di una buona inventiva improvvisativa, ha fatto gran tesoro dell’insegnamento dei grandi maestri. Non perde un’occasione per mettere in mostra la sua notevole tecnica, suonando una musica con ricche ed ampie decorazioni.

WALLINGTON GEORGE, GIORGIO FIGLIA (P)

Palermo, Sicilia, Italia. 27/10/1924. – New York. 15/2/1993.

La sua famiglia è emigrata negli Stati Uniti nel 1925. Ha studiato pianoforte a nove anni ed a quindici si è esibito al Greenwich Village. Ha frequentato Max Roach, Oscar Pettiford, Don Byas e Dizzy Gillespie, ha suonato al Onyx Club nel primo gruppo bebop della storia del jazz. Ha lavorato con Joe Marsala, George Auld, Allen Eager, Red Rodney, Charlie Parker, Kai Winding, Gerry Mulligan, con Brew Moore nel 1949, con Zoot Sims nel 1952, con Lionel Hampton nel 1953. Si è fatto una ottima reputazione anche come arrangiatore e compositore. Due sue composizioni hanno tenuto a battesimo le famose sedute di Miles Davis per la Capitol ed altre sono diventate dei classici nel repertorio del secondo gregge di Woody Herman. Una delle sue registrazioni migliori è ritenuta quella in compagnia di Charles Mingus e Max Roach. Ha lasciato l’attività nel 1958 per dedicarsi ad una sua azienda di apparecchiature per condizionamento d’aria. E’ ritornato alla musica nel 1984 registrando un disco da solo e partecipando come ospite alle trasmissioni di Marian McPartland per la National Public Radio Network nel 1985. Ha registrato inoltre nella sua carriera con Serge Chaloff, Terry Gibbs, Stan Getz, Al Cohn, Gil Melle, con Tommy Talbert, Phil Woods, Bobby Jaspar, Tony Scott, Annie Ross. Lord Wallington com’era chiamato per la sua eleganza nel vestire è stato il caposcuola dei pianisti bebop. Pianista raffinato e sensibile,dall’inventiva melodica feconda.

WALTER LITTLE, MARION JACOBS (VC-ARM)

Marksville, Louisiana. 1/5/1930. – Chicago, Illinois. 15/2/1968.

A 12 anni ha lasciato lo studio per avvicinarsi al mondo del blues. E’ arrivato a Chicago nel 1945 ed ha iniziato ad esibirsi come chitarrista, ma la sua vocazione è l’armonica a bocca. Incontra il chitarrista Floyd James, con il quale registra per la prima volta. E’ stato uno dei primi ad amplificare l’armonica. Il 14 febbraio 1968 mentre si esibiva in un locale di Chicago è stato coinvolto in una rissa. In precedenza in altre circostanze simili aveva riportato diversi danni fisici. Quest’ultima rissa gli ha arrecato delle complicazioni che lo hanno portato alla morte. E’morto nel sonno nella casa della sua fidanzata la notte successiva. Musicista che con la sua armonica a bocca suona dei magnifici solo. Canta per lo più accompagnato da piccoli complessi di blues. Ha inciso con Sunnyland Slim, poi con Muddy Waters (1947) E’ senza dubbio il miglior solista di armonica del moderno blues di Chicago. chiusura
