CLAYTON Buck

CLAYTON BUCK WILBUR DORSEY. (TP).

Parsons, Kansas. 12/11/1911. – New York. 8/12/1991.

Ha iniziato a studiare il pianoforte a sei anni, quindi sotto la guida del padre, direttore di orchestre attive nelle chiese, ha studiato la tromba. Ha esordito come pianista e solo a diciannove anni si è impegnato come trombettista, sempre in orchestre ecclesiastiche. Ha debuttato nel 1932 in California nell’orchestra diretta da Charles Echols, è passato poi con quella di La Vern Floyd ed infine con quella di Ear Dancer. Dal 1934 al 1936 è entrato in una orchestra di quattordici elementi diretta da Teddy Weatherford, per una scrittura dal 1934 al 1936 a Shanghai. Tornato negli Stati Uniti ha suonato con i Kansas City Six di Lester Young e nel 1937 è entrato nell’orchestra di Count Basie per sostituire Hot Lips Page. Con Basie è arrivato a New York, dove in precedenza Clayton si era già messo in luce accompagnando Billy Holiday in una serie di incisioni rimaste famose. Con Basie è diventato uno dei solisti di maggiore spicco, ha composto diversi brani e si è cimentato con successo anche nello scrivere arrangiamenti. Ha partecipato al concerto alla Carnegie Hall del 1938 con Benny Goodman e nello stesso anno ha diretto i Kansas City Five in sala d’incisione. Nel 1943 ha lasciato Basie e ha inciso con Coleman Hawkins nel 1944. Dopo il servizio militare nel 1946 con un suo complesso ha partecipato a varie tournée con la JATP, ha suonato con J.C.Herad, con Charlie Ventura, con Trummy Young e con Lucky Thompson. Nel 1949 ha soggiornato per diversi mesi a Parigi dove ha inciso con Earl Hines e Bill Coleman ed ha organizzato diverse jam session in studi di registrazione. Nel 1959 ha collaborato con Eddie Condon con il quale si è recato in tournée in Giappone ed in Australia. Dal 1967 ha dovuto rallentare l’attività per problemi di salute, dedicandosi all’insegnamento. Nella sua carriera ha suonato e inciso anche con Harry James, Sidney Bechet e Jimmy Rushing. Trombettista molto influenzato da Louis Armstrong, dallo stile emotivo, dalla voce delicata piena di calore e dallo swing leggero ed elegante, molto legato alle armonie tradizionali, abilissimo nell’uso delle sordine. Le sue linee melodiche e la sua voce così piena di vibrato sono legate alle sue esperienze nella musica ecclesiale, difatti le sue inflessioni piene di patos hanno origine da quelle semplici e lineari dei gospel e degli spirituals. Si è dimostrato anche un buon arrangiatore fanno testo tutti quelli scritti per Basie, tra i quali il celebre “One O’ Clock Jump”, brano composto insieme da Clayton e Basie. Si dice che il titolo fosse stato creato alla fine di una trasmissione radio, quando il presentatore, annunciando che mancavano cinque minuti alla fine del programma, abbia chiesto a Basie quale fosse il titolo del brano che avrebbero eseguito ed i due guardando l’orologio decisero appunto di chiamarlo “One O’ Clock Jump”.

CLAYTON DOCTOR PETER JOE. (VC).

Ohio 1907. – Chicago, Illinois. ott. 1947.

Cantante di blues i cui dati anagrafici sono molto incerti. E’ cresciuto musicalmente nei club di Menphis, in seguito si è stabilito a St. Louis dove negli anni trenta ha registrato per la Bluebird insieme al pianista Toots Willis. La sua carriera nata sotto i migliori auspici si è interrotta bruscamente, egli perde in un incendio la moglie e i quattro figli, sconvolto dal dolore ha lasciato l’attività e di lui non si sono avute più notizie. Nel 1945 è torna a lavorare con il nome di Doctor al club Long Cabin di Indianapolis. Il successo è immediato e di grandi dimensioni, la sua fama è arrivata sino a Chicago. Purtroppo anche questa volta non è durata molto, poiché nel 1947 è morto nel più fitto mistero. Bluesmen maestro nel double talk, il doppio senso nel canto blues, capace di coinvolgere l’ascoltatore che era portato a dialogare con lui. Impegnato sino alla fine nella satira di una certa società anche di colore degli Stati Uniti. chiusura

Jasper County, Missouri. 2/3/1902. – New Orleans, Louisiana. 17/12/1963.

Trombettista che si è ben espresso sia nello stile New Orleans, con la Original Dixieland Jazz Band, di Nick La Rocca, con l’Original New Orleans Jazz Band di Frank Christian e Jimmy Durante e sia nel blues e nel rhythm and blues. In seguito ha suonato con varie brass band tra le quali quella di Jack Carey. Negli anni della depressione ha suonato con la VPA Band, un gruppo molto modesto. Nel dopoguerra ha continuato a dividersi tra il rhythm and blues ed il jazz tradizionale. All’inizio degli anni’60 ha fatto parte del gruppo del Captain John Handy. Ha anche diretto con un certo successo una sua formazione che ha suonato del buon blues e con il quale ha registrato anche dei dischi.
