HAWKINS Coleman

HAWKINS COLEMAN (TS)

St. Joseph. Missouri. 8/3/1901. – New York, 19/5/1969.

Soprannominato “Bean” (fagiolo) in quanto si dice che quando suonava il suo profilo ricordava questo legume. Ha iniziato gli studi musicali all’età di cinque anni, in seguito ha frequentato il Washburn College a Kansas City, dedicandosi al piano, al violoncello e quindi al sax tenore del quale è stato indiscusso maestro ed il primo che lo ha fatto diventare strumento solista. Ha continuato a perfezionare i suoi studi al Washburn College di Topeka ed ha iniziato a suonare giovanissimo in orchestre locali. Ha iniziato a farsi notare in una tournée con il gruppo dei Jazz Hounds della cantante Mamie Smith nel 1923, con la quale è arrivato a New York nel 1925 e dove è stato poi ingaggiato da Fletcher Henderson, nella cui orchestra ha suonato sino al 1933. Lasciato Henderson è partito per una tournée in l’Europa con Jack Hilton ed è stato uno dei primi musicisti americani ad incidere dischi con orchestre europee come: Noel Chiboust, Andrè Ekyan, Alix Combelle, Stephane Grappelli, Django Reinhardt, Michel Warlop, i Ramblers. Tornato negli Stati Uniti nel 1939 ha registrato quel “Body and Soul” che lo ha reso famoso. E’ stato sorpreso dal clamore suscitato, poichè a suo parere cose del genere le aveva sempre suonate. Ha iniziato a frequentare musicisti bop ai quali ha comunicato anche le sue idee. Nel 1946 ha fatto parte della JATP e nel 1948 ha registra un altro capolavoro “Picasso”, il primo brano registrato per sax solo della storia del jazz. Ha diretto insieme a Roy Eldridge un quintetto, ha suonato con Illinois Jacquet nel 1954. A questo punto ha attraversato un periodo critico, lo ha superato ed ha ripreso con più ardore a confrontarsi con gli innovatori più avanzati come John Coltrane, Max Roach, Abbey Lincoln, Sonny Rollins, Eric Dolphy ed in duo con Shelly Manne, cosa che lo ha inserito e gli ha dato un posto di rilievo anche nel jazz modale e nel free jazz. Dal 1965 é iniziato il suo rapido e drammatico declino. Nel corso della sua carriera ha inciso con: i Mound City Blue Blowers, Red McKenzie, Chocolate Dandies, Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, con i McKinney Cotton Pickers nel 1929, con Lionel Hampton nel 1939, con la Metronome All Stars Leaders, con Count Basie nel 1941, con Earl Hines nel 1943, con Mary Lou Williams nel 1944, con Buck Clayton nel 1954, Lester Young, con Duke Ellington nel 1962 e tanti altri. Alla sua morte le onoranze funebri hanno avuto una particolare solennità. Esse si sono svolte nella chiesa luterana di San Pietro sulla Lexington Avenue, nel cuore di Manhattan. Durante il servizio funebre hanno suonato Roland Hanna all’organo, Thad Jones e Ray Nance che al violino ha eseguito Body And Soul, di cui Hawkins ne aveva fatto la celebre interpretazione. L’ultima sua esibizione in pubblico è stata il 16 maggio in un concerto svoltosi al Fillmore East a New York. La sua figura ha dominato cinquanta anni della storia del jazz. E’ stato il primo ad incidere senza accompagnamento, non è stato mai un boppers, ma si è inserito con entusiasmo in questo nuovo verbo avendone dei legami per le sue idee molto vicine alla generazione dei bopers. Negli ultimi anni della sua carriera ha avuto ancora una nuova grinta che ha conservato sino alla morte. Il suo stile ha influenzato un gran numero di musicisti. Il sassofono di Bean aveva un suono ampio, delicato e sensuale nei lenti, aspro e affascinante nei brani veloci. Sassofonista tradizionale a cui attingono ancor oggi tutti i tenoristi. Ha spesso registrato con lo pseudonimo di Coleman Harkins.

HAWKINS EDWIN SINGERS (THE)

Gruppo vocale nato in California negli anni ’60. E’ stato diretto da Edwin Hawkins. Nel novero dei gruppi gospel nati in quel periodo, è stato quello dall’organico più numeroso, dagli intrecci armonici che conducevano ad ampliare il sound ed a dare maggiore possibilità solistiche. Il gruppo va verso la soul music, allontanandosi dalla tradizione. chiusura

HAWKINS ERSKINE RAMSAY. (tr-LEAD)

Birminghan, Alabama. 26/7/1914. – Willingsboro, New Jersey. 12/11/1993.

Inizia a suonare la tromba all’età di sette anni in orchestre locali. Ha studiato poi all’Alabama State Teacher’s College, della quale ha diretto la “The Bama State Collegians”, con la quale è andato a New York nel 1934 e si è esibito con successo al Savoy Ballrom.

Trombettista in possesso di una tecnica limpida, dalla vena poetica, bravo anche sul registro acuto, ma soprattutto stimato bandleader. Ha condotto una fortunata e valida orchestra swing di successo.

Uno dei personaggi più originali del R&B per il suo modo grottesco e divertente di porgersi.

Ha lavorato anche con Wyanonie Harris e Fats Domino. Cantante dalla voce di baritono, poderosa e di rara forza espressiva.

HAYES CLANCY, CLARENCE LEONARD. (G-BJ-VC)

Caney, Kansas. 14/11/1908. – San Francisco, California. 13/3/1972.

E’ un esponente del movimento sorto a San Francisco negli anni’40 per la rivalutazione del jazz arcaico promosso da Lu Watters con la Yerba Buena Jazz Band, di cui Hayes è stato un elemento importante. E’ stato uno specialista del banjo, ma si è fatto valere anche alla chitarra e soprattutto come cantante. In tale veste è stato considerato il più grande dopo Armstrong. Ha lavorato con Bunk Johnson, Tark Murphy, Lou Watters, Bob Scobey. Ha riproposto molte vecchie melodie, non solo del Jazz classico, ma anche del periodo Swing. Motivi dei primordi della canzone americana e di vecchi numeri di minstrel show con le parole originali. Il suo vero pregio di questa sua fatica è stato di riportare tutto con lo stesso spirito dell’epoca. E’ stato trascurato dagli storici.

HAYES ISAAC (VC)

Covington, Tennessee. 20/8/1942.

Cantante e pianista, ma soprattutto cantautore, che ha saputo trasformare e trasmettere la cruda realtà dei ghetti in bellissime melodie. Dalla voce baritonale calda e espressiva, egli è riuscito a creare con il suo trio una perfetta atmosfera jazz-bluesy. E’ stato il creatore della nuova formula nella quale il canto viene diluito in interminabili arrangiamenti. Ha unito la strumentazione dell’orchestra sinfonica con distorte chitarre rock.
