MCPARTLAND Marian

MCPARTLAND MARIAN MARGARET, TURNER PAGE. (P)

Vindsor, Inghilterra. 20/3/1918.

Nata in una famiglia di musicisti, ha studiato alla Guildhall School of Music ed ha debuttato con il pianista Bill Mayerl. Ha lavorato negli spettacoli per le forze armate in giro per l’Europa; in Belgio ha sposato un soldato americano il musicista Jimmy McPartland e con lui è tornata in America ed ha iniziato a suonare nel gruppo diretto dal marito. In seguito si è imposta all’attenzione del pubblico, superando la resistenza dei musicisti di jazz americani per la nazionalità ed il sesso; con un suo trio si è esibita al Hickory House, uno dei Club più alla moda della 52a strada dal 1952 al 1960. Ha suonato al Birdland con Howard McGhee, ha registrato in duo con Bud Powell, ed ha continuato a dirigere il suo trio, nel quale si sono alternati i migliori bassisti ed i migliori batteristi dell’epoca. Dal 1955 si è impegnata per divulgare il jazz nelle scuole. Ha dato il suo arguto contributo con pubblicazioni sui maggiori mezzi d’informazione americani. Nel 1969 ha anche fondato una sua casa discografica, nella quale ha registrato in collaborazione con Joe Venuti, Earl Hines, Teddy Wilson, Ellis Larkins, Dave McKenna e Jimmy Rowles. In seguito ha divorziato da Jimmy, ed hanno lavorato occasionalmente. Ha lavorato come disc jockey alla WBAI di New York, dove ha invitato moltissimi pianisti ed ha prodotto la famosa serie “Piano Jazz” per la NPR, programma nel quale dialoga con gli invitati sia conversando che suonando. Ha suonato anche con Eddie Condon, Benny Goodman, in televisione. E’ stata nel 1997 la prima pianista donna a suonare alla Corte Suprema degli Stati Uniti. Ha continuato ad esibirsi nei migliori locali e ad incontrare studenti in molte scuole e college. Ha fatto una tournée europea con Benny Carter, in Inghilterra con John Dankworth ed in occasione dell’ottantesimo compleanno ha dato un concerto alla Town Hall di New York, insieme ai componenti il suo primo trio, il bassista Bill Crow ed il batterista Joe Morello. Ha ricevuto molti premi e onorificenze. Musicista molto stimata, dal pianismo fluido ed elegante molto vicino a quello di Teddy Wilson, ancora oggi sulla scena mondiale rappresenta un pianismo che ha fatto tesoro delle diverse esperienze musicali.

Nello stesso tempo ha suonato con Barry Harris al Minton’s. Ha messo su con Lonnie Hyllier un gruppo con il quale si è esibito nei vari club. Ha partecipato a Festival importanti ed ha suonato con Charles Tolliver, Sam Jones, Toshiko Akiyoshi, ha registrato con Pepper Adams, Art Farmer, Don Patterson, Bobby Jones, con Kenny Drew nel 1978, con Lionel Hampton nel 1980, con Larry Vuckovich nel 1981, con Don Cheathan nel 1984. Oltre ad un ottimo esecutore è anche un buon compositore, ha insegnato e scritto per il cinema. Nel 1974 con un suo gruppo ha fatto una famosa tournée intitolata ”Musical Life of Charlie Parker”. Molto influenzato da Charlie Parker, del quale non ha imitato solo pedissequamente lo stile, ma ha voluto interpretarne lo spirito e in parte ci è riuscito. Molte volte la grandezza non sempre risiede nella innovazione, ma può anche manifestarsi restando fedele ad un linguaggio nel quale vi sono tanti spazi e possibilità creative e originali come nel bop. Nel 1967 è stato premiato dal Down Beat.

MCPHERSON ERIC, CHRISTOPHER STEPHENS. (DR)

New York. 11/12/1970.

Ha assorbito sin dalla più tenera età svariate influenze ritmiche e musicali grazie alla madre Saundra, ballerina e coreografa, che sin dall’età di tre mesi lo portava attaccato a sé con una fasciatura alla schiena durante lezioni, audizioni e prove legate allo svolgimento della propria attività professionale. Tra i colleghi e amici musicisti della madre figurano il contrabbassista Richard Davis, compagno di Barbara Alston, star di Broadway collega e migliore amica di Saundra, che suggerirono per il loro figlioccio il nome di Eric in ricordo di Eric Dolphy e inoltre Max Roach, Michael Carvin, Charles Moffett, e Freddie Waits, che sono diventati per Eric importanti influenze nel proprio sviluppo musicale, nonché fonti di eclettica ispirazione. A dodici anni Eric ha iniziato a studiare formalmente con Michael Carvin e a frequentare la LaGuardia High School of the Arts. Nel corso degli studi ha superato le audizioni per entrare nella New York All City High School Big Band e nella McDonald’s High School Tri-State Big Band, con cui si è esibito in numerosi centri culturali di New York, tra cui anche la Carnegie Hall e il Lincoln Center. Con il suo gruppo studentesco ha vinto diversi concorsi tra cui quello del Downbeat Magazine e individualmente diversi premi nella categoria “Outstanding Soloist”. La Hartt School of Music e la University of Hartford nel Connecticut, ha assegnato ad Eric una borsa di studio per frequentare il Jackie McLean Institute. Nel corso dei suoi studi Eric McPerson ha iniziato la sua collaborazione con Jackie McLean, esperienza che si è protratta per quindici anni, nel corso della quale ha avuto modo di suonare in tutto il mondo. Ha inoltre collaborato con Abraham Burton, Andrew Hill, Pharoah Sanders, Richard Davis, Claudia Acuña, Avishai Cohen, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Jason Moran e Greg Osby.chiusura
