JACKSON Milt

JACKSON MILT MILTON “BAGS” (VIB)

Detroit, Michigan. 1/1/1923. – New York. 9/10/1999.

Ha iniziato a suonare prima la chitarra, a sette anni il pianoforte, ad undici anni i timpani, il violino, lo xilofono ed infine il vibrafono alle scuole superiori. Ha frequentato il Michigan State University, ma il primo impatto con la musica lo ha avuto nel 1939 quando, frequentando la chiesa, ha cantato come tenore in un gruppo gospel. Ha scoperto il jazz suonando in piccoli gruppi locali e qui, nel 1944, è stato scoperto da Dizzy Gillespie che lo ha convinto a trasferirsi a New York nel 1945, dove ha conosciuto Charlie Parker ed il bop. Ha registrato con Dinah Washington, ha suonato con Dizzy Gillespie, Howard McGhee, Thelonious Monk, Coleman Hawkins, Lucky Thompson, Woody Herman, Illinois Jacquet, Fats Navarro, Ray Brown, Kenny Clarke. Ha registrato con Jimmy Heath, Tadd Dameron, Thelonious Monk, Howard McGhee, Charlie Parker, Nat King Cole, Machito, Gil Fuller e Woody Herman. Quasi per caso, nel 1950, insieme a John Lewis, conosciuto durante il periodo trascorso con Gillespie, hanno messo su un quartetto ed inciso un album che ha avuto molto successo, ed è nato il Modern Jazz Quartet. Il gruppo iniziale era formato da Jackson, Lewis, Percy Heath al basso e Kenny Clark alla batteria, sostituito subito dopo da Connie Kay. Il gruppo è stato attivo sino al 1974. Successivamente Jackson ha continuato a suonare ed incidere con vari gruppi. Si è ritrovato con i suoi vecchi compagni del Modern Jazz Quartet, in occasione di concerti o tournée occasionali. L’esperienza fatta nel MJQ ha portato Jackson alla completa maturazione musicale. La voce del suo strumento è diventata liquida, piena di suggestione. Senz’altro il più grande vibrafonista bebop della storia del jazz. Pur suonando nei rigidi schemi dettati da John Lewis ha sempre conservato la sua personalità di autentico solista bop. Ha inciso anche nelle pause degli impegni del MJQ, con Ben Webster, Sonny Rollins, Henry Renaud, Ernestine Anderson, Horace Silver, Ray Charles, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson. Insieme a Ray Brown ha diretto una grossa orchestra. Ha insegnato alla Lenox Jazz School. Ha registrato con Cedar Walton, Ron Carter, con Mickey Cocker, musica fusion. A quanti gli hanno chiesto quale è l’origine del suo modo di suonare, suono pieno di soul, di blues e di gospel, egli ha risposto che gli viene dalla chiesa e dal cuore. Egli nei suoi soli ha reso sempre semplici le armonie più complicate, questo lo ha portato ad essere uno dei più grandi interpreti di ballads. Ha influito sulla sua musica anche il lungo rapporto con Lewis, che lo ha aiutato a fondere bop e armonia. Tutti i vibrafonisti moderni hanno attinto al suo stile e gli devono profondo rispetto.

New Orleans, Louisiana. 5/6/1876. – Chicago, Illinois. 20/4/2001.

Il suo debutto lo ha fatto in un locale di New Orleans chiamato l’Amelia, poi è passato al Tchoupitoulas, al Gypsy Schaeffer’s ed al Lulu’s White’s. Queste erano tutte case di piacere di Storyville, nelle quali egli è diventato celebre. Nel 1910 si è trasferito a Chicago e nel 1918 ha messo su un gruppo del quale faceva parte anche Sidney Bechet, con il quale si è esibito al Pekin Cabaret ed in altri club, in duo con il pianista Glover Compton. E’ stato uno dei primi pianisti ragtime della storia del Jazz di cui si ricordi il nome. Musicista leggendario, in base anche alle testimonianze di Jelly Roll Morton e Alberta Hunter, che lo ricorda come un bravissimo cantante, un pianista brillante, ottimo compositore, oltre che alcoolizzato e omosessuale.
