CARTER Ron

CARTER RON ROLAND LEVIN (B).

Ferndale, Michigan. 4/5/1937.

Musicista che può essere ritenuto polistrumentista; infatti, oltre al contrabasso ed al violoncello, ha imparato a suonare anche il violino, il trombone, il clarinetto, la tuba e ha studiato composizione. Ha avviato gli studi nelle scuole superiori di Detroit e li ha proseguiti alla Eastman School of Music di Rochester, nello stato di New York. Ha frequentato anche corsi di perfezionamento al conservatorio di Manhattan, completandoli nel 1958. Ha iniziato la carriera suonando musica da camera nella Eastman Philarmonica Orchestra diretta da Howard Hanson e nel 1959 è entrato nel gruppo diretto da Chico Hamilton. Ha proseguito per un lungo periodo di attività free lance, nel quale ha suonato e registrato con Bill Evans nel 1960, con Julian Adderley nel 1961, poi con Eric Dolphy, Wes Montgomery, Jaki Byard, Randy Weston, Bobby Timmons, Mal Waldron, Gil Evans, Miles Davis nel 1963, Sonny Rollins nel 1964, Woody Shaw nel 1965, Fredrich Gulda, Lena Horn, Michel Legrand nel 1971, ha fatto parte del New York Jazz Quintet nel 1972, poi con Stanley Turrentine, Hubert Laws, Lionel Hampton, Joe Henderson, George Benson, McCoy Tyner, Freddie Hubbard, Grower Washington, Aretha Franklin, Benny Goodman nel 1975. Ha fatto anche parte del VSOP, del Great Jazz Trio nel 1977, con Mc Coy Tyner, Stan Getz, Chet Baker, Red Garland, Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Smith, John Siegel, Benny Golson, Cedar Walton, Kenny Barron, Jim Hall 1984, Tony Williams nel 1985, Steve Kuhn e Bradford Marsalis nel 1986. Negli ultimi anni spesso ha preferito esibirsi al violoncello anziché al contrabasso. Egli suona entrambi con brio e scioltezza, spesso nei suoi gruppi ha suonato il piccolo, accompagnato anche da un basso acustico, ottenendo un sound molto ricco. E’ un improvvisatore ardente, dallo slancio che ricorda molto quello di Pettiford. Ha insegnato improvvisazione alla John Lewis School di New York.

CARUGNO MAURIZIO (ST).

Ha studiato per molto tempo negli Stati Uniti, dove è stato allievo di Jerry Bergonzi, di Gary Burton. Ha collaborato con Cameron Brown, Billy Hart, Joe Di Jorio, Paul Jeffrey, Victor Lewis, Joe Calderazzo, Dave Santoro, George Garzone, Tullio DePiscopo ed altri. Sassofonista che dimostra sino dalle prime uscite una buona disinvoltura. Manovra lo strumento con molta perizia, agilità ed anche duttilità. Dalla sonorità calda ed a volte tenebrosa. Il suo punto di riferimento è Michel Brecker, ma non si fossilizza su quel modello ma dimostra duttilità ed originalità.

CARUSO LUCIANO (SS).

Torino, Italia. 1958.

Sopranista che ha un punto fisso di riferimento in Steve Lacy. Difatti egli ha voluto essere un sopranista puro ed esprimersi solo con il sax soprano. Vive e lavora a Vittorio Veneto. Musicista dotato di un buon ritmo e di un buon livello tecnico. Negli ultimi tempi però ha cercato di affrancarsi dal suo modello. Il suo ora è un Jazz libero da ogni legame, che ricorda molto il free degli anni sessanta.

CARY DICK RICHARD DURANT (P).

Hartford, Connecticut. 10/7/1916. – Glendale, California. 6/4/1994.

Il suo primo strumento è stato il violino, quando era ancora studente e con il quale ha esordito con la Hartfort Symphony Orchestra. Ha debuttato professionalmente al pianoforte in veste di solista al celebre Nick’s di New York nel 1942. Ha suonato poi con Joe Marsala, lavora come arrangiatore con Benny Goodman, mentre suona con la Casaloma Orchestra. Nel 1946 fa parte del gruppo di Billy Butterfield, ha suonato anche con Brad Gowans, con Muggsy Spanier e con Jean Goldkette. Con una sua orchestra si è esibito al “Meridian” nel Connecticut. Nel 1947 è chiamato a fare parte dei famosi All Stars di Louis Armstrong, con i quali ha partecipato a moltissimi concerti ed a molte sedute di registrazione. Ha anche collaborato con Wild Bill Davison, Bobby Hackett, Eddie Condon, Tommy Dorsey nel 1949, con Jimmy Dorsey anche nella veste di arrangiatore, poi con Tony Parenti, con Max Kaminsky, con Bud Freeman dal 1957 al 1959. Ha inciso anche con Benny Goodman, Pee Wee Russell, Jack Teagarden. Si é stabilito in California, dove si è dedicato più all’arrangiamento ed alla composizione. Ha suonato con Bob Crosby, Red Nichols, ha partecipato a diversi Festival e a varie tournée. Musicista molto versatile, con una solida preparazione che però non ha mai avuto dei veri riconoscimenti per le sue ottime doti, specie come arrangiatore, nella cui mansione è stato sempre alla ricerca ed alla sperimentazione di nuove forme tendenti a rivoluzionare il jazz tradizionale. Quindi un dixielander con tendenze moderne, al pianoforte è stato uno dei pianisti preferiti da Louis Armstrong.

CARY MARC, ANTHONY (P-TAST).

New York. 1967.

Suo padre è stato un percussionista e la madre una pittrice e violoncellista. E’ cresciuto a Washington, D.C. dove ha iniziato a suonare il violoncello, la tromba, le percussioni ed anche il pianoforte a 14 anni. A sedici anni ha lasciato la scuola per suonare in un’orchestrina da ballo ed in seguito ha frequentato la Duke Ellington School for Performing Arts dove si è diplomato nel 1987. Ha preso anche lezioni private da John Malachi. Dopo una breve frequentazione della University of District of Columbia, si è trasferito a New York nel 1988 per studiare con Walter Davis, Mulgrew Miller e Barry Harris. Ha suonato nel trio di Beaver Harris, ha fatto una tournée ed ha registrato con Betty Carter nel 1990. Ha suonato nei gruppi di Art Taylor ed in seguito in quello di Roy Hargrove, che lo ha valorizzato anche come compositore. Ha diretto un suo gruppo gli “Indigenous People”. Ha anche collaborato con Abbey Lincoln. Musicista dal pianismo articolato in modo percussivo sul modello di McCoy Tyner, con interpretazioni torrenziali. A volte monotono, ricorre frequentemente a schemi ritmici semplici ma ossessivi.

CASA LOMA ORCHESTRA.

Orchestra nata nel 1925 come “Orange Blossoms Band”. Essa è composta per la maggior parte da musicisti provenienti dalle varie orchestre da ballo organizzate e gestite dall’impresario Jean Goldkette di Detroit. E’ diretta inizialmente da Henry Biagini e Mel Jensen. In seguito su iniziativa di Glen Gray è stata costituita sotto forma di cooperativa (la prima della storia del Jazz) con Gray presidente e manager ed ha assunto il nome di “Casaloma”. La nuova orchestra ha fatto il suo esordio al famoso Roseland Ballroom di New York, dove ha ottenuto un grande successo. Essa ha precorso lo stile delle maggiori orchestre swing che sarebbero nate negli anni successivi. Gli stessi Benny Goodman e Tommy Dorsey hanno ammesso che le loro grandi orchestre erano state impostate sul suo modello. Nelle sue fila si sono alternati molti grandi musicisti dell’epoca ed anche grandi arrangiatori tra i quali spiccano i nomi di Fletcher ed Horace Henderson e tra i solisti quelli del trombonista Pee Wee Hunt, del clarinettista Clarence Hutchenrider, del trombonista Billy Rauch e del sassofonista Pat Davis. Ha registrato molti dischi per lo più commerciali ed ha prodotto per lo più una musica monotona. Ha inciso anche con Armstrong.

CASARANO RAFFAELE (SS-SA).

Puglia, Italia, 7/5/1981.

Ha iniziato a studiare il sassofono all’età di sette anni, e si è diplomato presso il conservatorio T.Scipa di Lecce. Ha studiato anche con Roberto Ottaviano. Ha collaborato con Roberto Ottaviano, Paolo Fresu, Javer Girotto, Patrizia Conte, Gaetano Partipilo e molti altri. Sassofonista legato ad un tipo di mainstream che lega quello degli anni ’50 e ’60, con quello di importanti musicisti contemporanei come David Liebman, di cui è stato allievo. Strumentista dalle ottime doti, ostico al sax alto e lirico al soprano.

CASATI GIAMPAOLO (TP-CORN).

Genova, Italia. 12/9/1959.

Ha Iniziato a suonare da dilettante ed in seguito ha studiato e si è diplomato al Conservatorio. Negli anni ’50 ha soggiornato in America dove ha modo di collaborare con diversi grandi musicisti, ma soprattutto ha avuto la possibilità di studiare con Lennie Tristano. Ha trascorso molto tempo fuori d’Italia e per questo motivo ed anche per il suo carattere riservato non è molto conosciuto. Nel 1992 ha registrato con il Nuovo Sestetto Italiano di Gianni Cazzola. Ha fatto parte della big band la “Bansiqu”. Nel 1994 ha registrato il suo primo disco da leader, nel quale ha dimostrato maturità, lucidità nel fraseggio, oltre ad un buon senso del ritmo. Musicista ecclettico, buon conoscitore della storia e degli stili del jazz, ha percorso tutto l’excursus di questa musica dal New Orleans agli ultimi dettami moderni.
