HAMPTON Lionel

HAMPTON LIONEL (DR-P-VIB)lionelhampton

Louisville, Kentucky. 12/4/1909. – New York, 31-3-2002.

Figlio di Charles Edward, di mestiere ferroviere che lascia presto la famiglia, si dice sia morto in combattimento sul fronte francese nella prima guerra mondiale. La moglie Gertrude Morgan con il piccolo Lionel si sono trasferiti a Birmingham nell’Alabama presso i genitori di lei. In seguito nel 1916 si sono stabiliti a Chicago dove Lionel ha frequentato la St. Elizabeth High School. Ha debuttato nel 1920 nella “Chicago Defender Newboy’s Band”. Nel 1924 si è trasferito in California, dove ha studiato all’Università, mantenendosi agli studi lavorando come barista. Ha suona con Paul Howard e poi con Vernon Elkins. Ha registrato il suo primo assolo di vibrafono incidendo “Memories of you” al fianco di Louis Armstrong, mentre con Les Hite ha partecipato ad una incisione sempre insieme a Louis Armstrong suonando la batteria. Ha messo su un proprio gruppo con il quale si è esibito al Paradise Ballroom di Hollywood. E’ stato premiato come nuova stella dal Down Beat e Benny Goodman gli ha proposto di entrare nel suo quartetto e qui è rimasto sino al 1940. Ed è in questo periodo che ha scoperto per caso che invece suo padre e vivo e risiede a Dayton, presso il locale ospizio dei veterani di guerra. Ritrovato il padre non ha avuto la fortuna di portarselo a vivere con lui e la madre a New York perché questi muore improvvisamente, avendo avuto però il privilegio di scoprire di aver un figlio famoso. Ormai si è affermato come uno i più dotati solisti di vibrafono. Ha messo su la sua grande orchestra il cui stile all’inizio moderno e progressivo è diventato col trascorrer degli anni più commerciale, una specie di R&B di alta classe. Anche se non è stato il primo ad usare il vibrafono nel Jazz è riuscito a dargli una connotazione particolare, ha trasformato uno strumento tenue e leggero in uno corposo ed elettrizzante. Percussivo nei tempi rapidi e delicatissimo e cristallino in quelli lenti. Dotato di una grande carica di swing è stato determinate nei piccoli gruppi, in particolare quelli di Benny Goodman. Anche batterista funambolico e pianista particolare (usava solo due dita) oltre che discreto cantante. Nel corso della sua lunga carriera è stato un grande organizzatore di Jam session discografiche nelle quali ha riunito il ghota jazzistico e nelle quali riusciva ad infondere la sua grande carica di swing. Nelle sue orchestre ha allineato solisti di prima grandezza e prodotto musica eccitante, nei suoi concerti riusciva a portare l’ascoltatore in una specie di trance. Anche dopo aver superato gli ottanta anni con alle spalle due infarti ed un ictus ha continuato a stare sulla breccia e dirigere l’unica grande orchestra ancora in attività. All’inizio del 1997 è scampato per miracolo ad un incendio che ha distrutto il suo grande appartamento sito vicino al Lincoln Center. Nel 1978 ha fondato anche una sua casa discografica.

HAN MEI (ZHENG)

Musicista cinese che suona un antico strumento cinese lo zhengche è un progenitore del giapponese koto.Strumentista cresciuta nelle migliori scuole cinesi, valida etnomusicologa. Anche dopo essersi trasferita in Canada, ha continuato lo studio di questo antico strumento nel contesto della musica contemporanea, sia in quella composta che in quella improvvisata, anche attraverso l’elaborazione di specifiche accordature e tecniche particolari. Ha trovato un partner ideale nel pianista di Vancouver Paul Plimley, che con la sua sensibilità fornisce un agile supporto ritmico. Nelle abili mani della Han, lo strumento cinese, si trasforma via via in arpa, banjo e tutte le sonorità della chitarra, dal blues con tanto di bent notes fino a Derek Bailey. Nella sua musica non vi sono cineserie o la sattica contemplazione new age. ma un dialogo aperto, nel quale uno strumento bimillenario viene usato con movenze e linee armoniche contemporanee.
