MONTGOMERY Wes

MONTGOMERY WES, JOHN LESLIE. (G)

Indianapolis, Indiana. 6/3/1923. – Indianapolis, Indiana. 15/6/1968.

Ha trascorso molti anni nella sua città, prendendosi cura della sua numerosa famiglia rallegrata da ben sei figli e suonando con i fratelli. Ha imparato da solo a suonare la chitarra elettrica e ha esordito andando in tour con l’orchestra di Lionel Hampton nel maggio del 1948 sino al 1950. Tornato ad Indianapolis, ha lavorato con Eddie Higgins e Roger Jones. Ha fatto parte con i fratelli dei Mastersounds. Si è trasferito a New York, sulla spinta del critico Ralph J.Gleason, che ha scritto di lui in termini entusiastici, e di quella di Cannonball Adderley che lo ha raccomandato alla Riverside. Qui ha raccolto i frutti della sua abilità e sin dalle prime incisioni ha suscitato entusiasmo ed è stato definito il più grande chitarrista del Jazz apparso sulla scena dopo Charlie Christian. Ha avuto un suo trio con l’organista Melvin Rhyne e il batterista Paul Parker. Nel 1960 si è trasferito a Los Angeles, dove per qualche tempo ha suonato con i fratelli, e con Milton Jackson nel 1961. Ha registrato ”The incredible Guitar Of Wess Montgomery” insieme a Tommy Flanagan, Percy e Albert Heath, indicato dai critici come uno dei più bei dischi di chitarra della storia del Jazz. Ha preso parte nel settembre del 1961 al Jazz Workshop a San Francisco e al Monterey Jazz Festival con John Coltrane. E’ tornato ad Indianapolis ed ha ricostituito il suo trio. Nel 1964 ha registrato con la Verve dei dischi piuttosto commerciali. Ha continuato a collaborare con piccoli gruppi tra i quali quello di Wynton Kelly ed in Inghilterra nel 1965 è apparso in una puntata televisiva della trasmissione “Jazz 625” della BBC. Ha vinto molti premi e ha registrato con Jon Hendricks, Cannonball Adderley, Nat Adderley, Bobby Timmons, Harold Land, Joe Gordon, Vic Feldman, Ray Brown, Hank Jones, George Shearing, Wynton Kelly, Johnny Griffin, Herbie Hancock e Jimmy Smith, ma soprattutto come solista e con un suo gruppo. Chitarrista completamente autodidatta, dotato di tecnica tutt’altro che ortodossa, ma tuttavia sbalorditiva. Chitarrista dal timbro morbido e con un profondo senso del blues anche quando suonava la pop music. Uomo dal carattere molto dolce e di un candore commovente, caduto nelle mani di un abile manager come Creed Taylor, che gli ha fatto incidere molti dischi commerciali, senza permettergli si suonare quello che gli stava più a cuore. Avrebbe potuto dare ancora molto al Jazz se non fosse stato stroncato da un collasso cardiaco, Creed Taylor permettendo.

MONTOLIU TETE, I MASSANA VINCENTE. (P)

Barcellona, Spagna. 28/3/1933. – Barcellona, Spagna. 24/8/1997.

Cieco di nascita, ha studiato al conservatorio di Barcellona, piano, organo, armonia e composizione. Spronato dalla madre, innamorata del jazz, ha frequentato delle jam session nei club della sua città ed ha avuto modo di suonare con Don Byas e con Lionel Hampton a Madrid nel 1956. Ha preso parte al Festival jazz di Cannes in Francia insieme a Doug Watkins e Art Taylor. E’ stato scritturato al Blue Note di Berlino e qui ha suonato con Albert Mangelsdorff, Chet Baker, Benny Bailey, Sahib Shihab e Herb Geller. Ha collaborato anche con Kenny Dorham, Archie Shepp, Dexter Gordon, Roland Kirk, con Dusko Goicovich nel 1971. Negli Stati Uniti ha registrato con Bobby Hutcherson, con Barney Willen nel 1988, Ben Webster, Lucky Thompson, Anthony Braxton e George Coleman. Forse il pianista europeo che meglio ha interpretato lo spirito nero, senza trascurare di esibirsi anche in canti popolari della sua terra nella maniera più incantevole.

MONTROSE JACK (TS)

Detroit, Michigan. 30/12/1928. – Nevada. 7/2/2006.

Ha studiato al Los Angeles State College dove si è diplomato nel 1953 e ha iniziato a suonare nello stesso anno con Jerry Gray. Ha suona poi con Art Pepper, Bob Gordon, Shorty Rogers, Red Norvo, Chet Baker, Al Haig, Lennie Niehaus, Elmer Bernstein, Jack Millman, John Gras, Paul Chambers, Shelly Manne, Frank Butler, Pete Jolly. Anche ottimo compositore ed arrangiatore, in questa veste ha lavorato per Chet Baker e Clifford Brown. Solista con molta fantasia, ha diretto con Bob Gordon un gruppo che è divenuto uno dei più validi quintetti cool dell’epoca, suonando una musica stile West Coast veramente affascinante. In seguito ha diretto un gruppo che ha avuto una sua originalità : ha suonato un genere molto influenzato dalla moderna musica classica.
