MINGUS Charles

MINGUS CHARLES, CHARLIE. (B)

Nogales, Arizona. 22/4/1922. – Cuernavaca, Messico. 15/1/979.

Trasferitosi con la famiglia a Los Angeles, ha studiato trombone e violoncello con Britt Woodman. Giovanissimo è stato messo di fronte alla musica europea ed a quella della tradizione africana della Chiesa Metodista Episcopale gestita dalla sua famiglia, i blues evangelici preferiti dalla sua matrigna. Ha studiato il contrabasso alle scuole superiori con Red Callender e composizione con Lloyd Reese. Ha lasciato gli studi è ha iniziato a suonare insieme a Buddy Colette e Dexter Gordon nella “Reese’s”, una orchestra di dilettanti. Ha continuato a suonare in gruppi studenteschi, per poi debuttare con Al Adams nel 1940, poi insieme a Kid Ory nel gruppo di Barney Bigard nel 1942, quindi una tournée con Louis Armstrong. Lasciato Armstrong ha ripreso a studiare con impegno e ha fatto parte della New York Philarmonic orchestra diretta da Herman Rheinschagen, maturando nello stesso periodo le sue idee musicali e la sua tecnica. Nel 1943 ha suonato con Lee Young al Billy Berg’s Swing Club, ha iniziato a lavorare negli studi ed ha suonato con Illinois Jacquet, con Dinah Washington, con Jimmy Knepper, con Lucky Thompson e ha fatto parte del gruppo “Stars of Swing” a Los Angeles nel 1946. Con Howard McGhee, Alvino Rey, Dizzy Gillespie, dal 1947 al 1948 con Lionel Hampton e dal 1950 al 1951 in trio con Red Norvo e Tal Farlow. A New York ha suonato con Miles Davis, Billy Taylor, Lennie Tristano, Stan Getz, Duke Ellington, Bud Powell, Billy Taylor, Oscar Pettiford, con Jay Jay Johnson nel 1954. Con Charlie Parker, Bud Powell e Max Roach ha partecipato al famoso concerto di Toronto, registrato dalla Debut, casa discografica appena fondata da Mingus. Con Gillespie, Parker, Powell e Art Taylor al Birdland di New York. Nello stesso periodo ha organizzato delle sezioni con Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey e Max Roach e nel 1954 a Miami con Art Tatum. Nella metà degli anni ’50 è stato attivo in modo importante come compositore, insieme a Teo Macero, Teddy Charles, John LaPorta ed altri. Ha scritto per la Jazz Composers’ Workshop dal novembre 1953 all’estate del 1955. Ha collaborato con Paul Bley, Thad Jones, ha guidato un quartetto con J.R.Montrose, Charles e Elvin Jones, con il quale si è esibito al Newport Jazz Festival e in ottobre ha messo su un trio con Bud Powell e Elvin Jones. Ha iniziato ha capire che questi gruppi erano inadeguati come approccio alla sua musica, quindi ha cominciato a dettare le linee interpretative ai singoli musicisti e nel corso degli anni i suoi gruppi sono variati da quattro a undici elementi, con l’aggiunta di Eddie Bert, Mal Waldron, Willie Jones, David Amram, Kackie McLean, Bill Hardman, Ernie Henry, Lou Donaldson e Dannie Richmond. Negli anni ’60 ha coinvolto nei suoi progetti: Ted Curson, Lonnie Hillyer, Eric Dolphy, Leo Wright, Yusef Lateef, Charles McPherson, Roland Hanna, Kenny Drew, Jaki Byard, Kenny Barron, Elvin Jones, Baby Lawrence, Charlie Mariano, Richard Williams. In questo periodo ha scritto le sue composizioni più complesse: “The Black Saint And The Sinne Lady” e “Meditations On Integration”. Alla fine del 1962 sino all’inizio del 1966 egli ha coinvolto altri musicisti: Howard McGhee, Snooky Young, Rolf Ericson, Idrees Sulieman, Johnny Coles, Jimmy Owens, Eddie Preston, Hobart Dotson, Garnett Brown, Quentin Jackson, Julius Watkins, Don Butterfield, Jerome Richardson, Dick Hafer, Clifford Jordan, Joe Farrell, Joe Albany, Jane Getz, Walter Perkins. Nel 1964 con un suo sestetto ha partecipato al Monterey Jazz Festival ed ha fatto un tour in Europa. Pressioni finanziarie lo hanno costretto a riprendere l’attività in pieno ed ha compiuto un numero impressionante di tour negli anni ’70. Ha diretto la sua ultima sezione sulla sedia a rotelle e ha collaborato alla registrazione di un album della cantante Joni Mitchell. Il miglior periodo della sua carriera è stato tra 1955 ed il 1965, con la sua produzione migliore. Musicista e personaggio scomodo, la sua introversione aveva origine dal fatto che essendo meticcio non si sentiva accettato nè dai bianchi e nè dai neri. E’ stato definito ironicamente il musicista più ”nero” degli Stati Uniti, essendo sempre in collera con tutto e tutti. Mingus é stata una delle figure dominanti di tutto il Jazz moderno, come solista, come compositore e direttore di piccoli gruppi e di grandi orchestre, sperimentatore, uomo di transizione tra il jazz moderno classico e il jazz informale. Interessato alla polifonia ha dato spazio libero alla atonalità, alla improvvisazione collettiva, è stato un anticipatore del free. Egli è stato sopratutto un musicista dalle idee d’avanguardia con un grande rispetto per la tradizione. Il suo modello era la musica di Ellington in veste bop. Come contrabbassista dopo la scomparsa di Oscar Pettiford egli è rimasto l’unico erede diretto di Jimmy Blanton. Negli ultimi anni è stato sempre più afflitto dal male che lo ha ridotto sulla sedia a rotelle sino alla morte. Ha interpretato anche film con Frank Sinatra (Higher and Higher)e con Bing Crosby (Road to Zanzibar). Una sera a Pescara l’amico Mario Luzzi mi raccontava un episodio su Mingus; gli era stato commissionato un commento musicale per il film Todo Modo di Elio Petri, la musica venne registrata a Roma nel 1976, ma non venne usata dal regista perchè il suo musicologo la giudicò musica vecchia, già usata da Mingus in altre occasioni, era cioè una volgare patacca. Nel 1978 l’Atlantic pubblicò ”Cumbia & Jazz Fusion” disco che fù giudicato dal Down Beat come il migliore dell’anno. Questo disco conteneva la colonna sonora in questione ed il musicologo era Renzo Arbore. Ovviamente il fatto mi fù raccontato da Luzzi conoscendo egli la mia residenza ed i miei rapporti con Renzo Arbore, ma forse anche perché era sicuro che questa volta non avrei avuto argomenti validi per difenderlo. Gli risposi solo che all’epoca molti della mia generazione non erano ancora maturi per quel nuovo tipo di jazz.

Torino.

Siamo difronte ad un altro debuttante, che ovviamente deve acquisire una propria personalità anche se già dimostra delle discrete capacità sia come strumentista che come compositore. Mostra di non avere ancora appreso deltutto il linguaggio jazzistico, il suo linguaggio non ha ancora quella concretezza che il jazz richiede, soprattutto dal lato ritmico.

E’ stato attivo dal 1988 al 1991.

Torquay, Inghilterra. 2/11/1940.

Figlio di cantanti, ha iniziato ha cantare in un coro di bambini. Ha preso lezioni di tromba da maestri locali e ha suonato nella banda in giro per il Devon del sud negli anni’50. Nel 1962 è arrivato a Londra dove ha fatto parte del gruppo di Mke Westbrook ed in seguito ha girato l’Europa con dei gruppi rock. E’ tornato nella Brass Band di Westbrook nel 1972.

Cantante versatile, ora dalla voce da tenore ora quella da baritono ed ultimamante stridula come un pipistrello. Egli ha esplorato le parti più recondite della sua voce, come uno strumento, vocalista imprevedibile e camaleontico. Padrone assoluto dei suoi mezzi vocali, egli ha presentato la voce naturale, poco disciplinata al limite dell’anarchia, abituato a sporcare le note, cosa che ha reso molte volte difficile l’ascolto.

MINTON’S PLAYHOUSE.

Celebre locale di Harlem, situato al numero 210 West della 118a strada. E’ stato aperto nel 1938 ed inaugurato dal gruppo guidato dal sassofonista Henry Minton. Nel 1940 ne ha assunto la direzione Teddy Hill che ha pensato di dedicare la sera del lunedi alle jamsessions, alle quali pian piano hanno partecipato tutti i musicisti che lavoravano nei vari club, che alla loro chiusura si riversavano nel club. Il gruppo base è costituito da Kenny Clarke che ne ha avuto anche la direzione, da Joe Guy, da Nick Fenton e da Thelonious Monk. All’inizio degli anni’40 è diventato il luogo dove si è formato il nuovo linguaggio del jazz il ”be bop”. Altri protagonisti dell’avvenimento sono stati Dizzy Gillespie, Hot Lips Page, Roy Eldridge, Charlie Christian, Don Byas. Il locale è stato chiuso alla fine degli anni ’60.chiusura

MINTUN PETER (P)

Berkeley, California.

Musicista nato in una famiglia con diversi musicisti, lui è uno dei quattro figli. E’ cresciuto musicalmente suonando il pianoforte nelle feste, nei show musicali, nelle sale da ballo, nei cinema dove accompagna i fil muti, nei musei e nelle università. Il suo interesse per la musica degli anni venti lo ha aiutato a diventare uno degli interpreti principali delle canzoni popolari scritte tra le due guerre mondiali. Come lui le chiama “melodie classiche che trascendono tempo”. La musica di Pietro Mintun è sinonima della società San Francisco. Lui ha lavorato con orchestre sinfoniche, come intrattenitore, partecipando a presentazioni di film e di stelle del cinema e qualche volta anche degli stessi compositori. Le sue performance al pianoforte sono state richieste in sale d’esposizione di San Francisco e nelle eleganti sale dell’’Etoile nell’Albergo di Huntington, durante i simposi della Massoneria.
