MCFARLAND GARY (VIB)

Los Angeles, California. 23/10/1933. – New York. 2/11/1971.

Solo nel 1957 ha deciso di impegnarsi in modo serio nella musica, ha ottenuto una borsa di studio per la Berklee School Of Music di Boston. Nel 1960 si è stabilito a New York e nel 1961 Gerry Mulligan lo ha voluto come collaboratore nella sua Concert Jazz Band. Con il successo sono arrivati anche dei buoni impegni come quelli con Anita O’Day, con Stan Getz e con Gil Evans. Nel 1964 John Lewis ha suonato sue composizioni con una grande orchestra. Ha composto anche musica per balletti. Ha collaborato con Ron Carter, Steve Kuhn e Richard Davis. La sua prematura scomparsa ha privato il mondo del jazz e dell’arrangiamento di un valido personaggio. Compositore ed arrangiatore lirico e delicato. Come solista di vibrafono aveva un’ottima tecnica ed una ispirazione intelligente. Ha avuto una critica non troppo dolce nei suoi riguardi, gli si è imputata una scrittura troppo semplice, alla ricerca dell’effetto piacevole e di sonorità commerciali.

Composizioni:

A moment alone – A rosa negra – Balanco no samba – Bridgehampton south – Bridgehampton strut – Duas rosas – Gary’s theme – High camp – Melancolico – Misplaced Cowpoke – Night images – Noite triste – Peachtree – Pfoofnick – Pretty little Gipsy – Ramo de flores – Reflection in the park – Three patterns.

MCFERRIN BOB ROBERT. (VC)

New York. 11/3/1950.

Figlio d’arte, il padre Robert McFerrin Senior è stato un celebre baritono che ha doppiato Sidney Poitier nel film ”Porgy and Bess”, mentre la madre Sarah e stata soprano ed insegnante di canto. Ha studiato il pianoforte, il clarinetto e teoria musicale alla Julliard School. Ha iniziato a lavorare come pianista e cantante, ha diretto il Bobby McFerrin Quartet. A New Orleans nel 1978 ha lavorato con gli ”Astral Projet” . Nel 1979 è in duo con Jon Hendricks. Si è imposto come un cantante particolare, eclettico, spopolando sul palcoscenico del Great American Music Hall di San Francisco. Ha registrato con Pharoah Sanders. Ha partecipato al Festival di Newport del 1981 ottenendo un grande successo ed ha fatto una tournée con George Benson. Vocalist conosciuto in tutto il mondo, ha anche insegnato e diretto laboratori in corsi universitari. Dal 1983 ha deciso di esibirsi da solo, cosa che ha accresciuto il suo successo. Ha collaborato anche con Chico Freeman, Grover Washington Jr. , Manhattan Transfert, con Joe Zawinull nel 1985 e con Herbie Hancock. Ha preso parte al film ”Round Midnight” come narratore. Negli anni ’90 la San Francisco Opera gli ha commissionato un’opera lirica basata sulla vita di Gesù nell’Orto di Getsemani, dal libretto di Ishamael Reed, un romanziere californiano. All’inizio degli anni’90 ha organizzato un gruppo vocale di dodici elementi. Cantante molto fantasioso, presenta continuamente nuove sonorità piene di umorismo. Egli rappresenta lo scenario del canto jazz. Tende ad abbracciare nei suoi funambolici vocalizzi quanto di nuovo e di moderno è apparso nel jazz. Nel suo solismo vi sono un insieme di virtuosismo, scaturito dalla unione di dinamismo, melodia, percussività e comicità. Comunque da molti non è ritenuto un cantante di jazz nel senso stretto della parola, ma più un giocoliere della vocalità.

MCGHEE BROWNIE, WALTER. (VC-G)

Knoxville, Tennessee. 30/11/1915. – San Francisco, California. 18/2/1996.

Bluesmen dalla voce robusta e opaca, molto ricca di sfumature. Egli ha dato alle sue interpretazioni lo spessore di una preghiera con il suo gospel rurale esibito con molto orgoglio. Oltre alla chitarra egli suona anche il banjo, il pianoforte ed il kazoo. Ha iniziato a cantare nelle feste private e per la strada. In seguito è stato richiestissimo nei concerti ed in televisione. Egli passa con molta disinvoltura dal blues, allo spirituals, ai work song. Ha spesso collaborato con l’armonicista Sonny Terry ed insieme tutte le volte hanno dato vita a duetti nei quali risaltava la loro gioviale logica musicale, piena di lirismo ed ironia. Ha registrato anche con Big Bill Broonzy, Big Chief Ellis ed il pianista Bob Gaddy.

MCGHEE HOWARD (TP)

Tulsa, Oklahoma. 6/3/1918. – New York. 17/7/1987.

Ha appreso i primi elementi musicali dal fratello chitarrista. Si è trasferito a Detroit dove ha suonato il clarino e il sassofono in un gruppo studentesco. Dopo aver ascoltato un concerto di Armstrong si è dedicato alla tromba. Ha suonato con Leonard Gay, Jimmy Rachel e nel 1941 è entrato nell’orchestra di Lionel Hampton. Ha suonato poi con Andy Kirk, della cui orchestra è diventa un elemento di spicco e per il quale ha iniziato anche a comporre. E’ uno dei musicisti che ha frequentato le jam session del Minton’s Playhouse e della Clark Monroe’s Uptown House. Ha collaborato con Lester Young, ha suonato ed arrangiato per Charlie Barnet dal 1942 al 1943, con Andy Kirk dal 1943 al 1944, con George Auld, con Count Babsie, con Billy Eckstine e con Slim Gaillard. Si sposta in California al seguito di Coleman Hawkins, qui ha registrato con Charlie Parker il famoso Lover Man del 1946. Ha fatto parte della JATP di Norman Granz. Ha iniziato a condurre dei propri gruppi, è tornato a New York nel 1947, dove purtroppo ha attraversato un periodo difficile per problemi di droga, periodo nel quale ha suonato pochissimo. Nel 1961 ha avuto un’occasione per tornare in auge con Duke Ellington, ma purtroppo ha perso anche questa possibilità. E’ morto nella più triste povertà. Ha registrato durante la sua carriera anche con Oscar Pettiford (1950) Phineas Newborn, Illinos Jacquet, Charlie Ventura, Chubby Jackson, Andrè Previn, Dexter Gordon, Wardell Gray, Leo Parker, Kenny Clarke, Fats Navarro, Machito, Flip Phillips, Terry Gibbs, Kay Winding, Allen Eager, Tal Farlow, Phil Woods, James Moody, Teddy Charles, Dakota Stanton, Jay Jay Johnson, Sonny Stitt, Frank Wess, Mel Tormè. E’ stato uno dei primi stilisti della tromba bop, dal timbro molto efficace anche se delicato, dal fraseggio spedito e molto libero ritmicamente. Essendo maturato tra swing e bebop conservava nella sua musica elementi del jazz della fine degli anni ’30. Tromba dalla grande velocità di esecuzione e dalla particolare nitidezza. Ha vinto il referendum Down Beath nel 1949.
