MANNE Shelly

MANNE SHELLY SHELDON. (DR)

New York. 11/6/1920. – Los Angeles, 26/9/1984.

Figlio di un batterista, ha iniziato a suonare il sax alto e poi, a diciotto anni, ha preso a suonare la batteria. Il suo primo lavoro lo ha ottenuto su di un transatlantico con il gruppo di Pete Brown, in seguito ha lavorato con: Bobby Byrne, Raymond Scott, Joe Marsala, Will Bradley, Bob Astor, con Les Brown nel 1942, per breve tempo con Benny Goodman in sostituzione di Dave Tough e con John Bothwell. Dal 1942 al 1944 ha inciso con Barney Bigard, Johnny Hodges, Coleman Hawkins, Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Pettiford, Don Byas, Ray Nance, Johnny Bothwell, Boyd Raeburn, Shorty Rogers, Kay Winding, Stan Getz. Nel 1946 è entrato nell’orchestra di Stan Kenton, la Progressive Orchestra, poi ha suonato con molti piccoli gruppi moderni come quelli di Charlie Ventura, il Sheboblou Trio, George Shearing, Cubby Jackson, George Auld, Bill Harris, Howard McGhee. Ha partecipato a diverse tournée della JATP di Norman Granz e nel 1949 è entrato nell’orchestra di Woody Herman. Nel 1952 si è trasferito in California ed è entrato a far parte del manipolo di musicisti della Lighthause di Howard Rumsey, qui ha suonato insieme a Jimmy Giuffre, Russ Freeman. Ha messo su il suo gruppo con Conte Candoli, Bill Holman, Russ Freeman e Leroy Vinegar, in seguito è nato lo “Shelly Manne and his Men”. Insieme a Ray Brown ha condotto i “Poll Winners” , ha registrato con Sonny Rollins e con Andre Previn. Ha lavorato nel cinema, ha collaborato con Bill Evans nel 1962. Ha aperto un suo Club, lo ”Shelly’s Manne Hole” nel quale ha ospitato molti grandi musicisti. Nel 1974 ha fatto parte dei “Los Angeles Four” con Ray Brown, Laurindo Almeida e Bud Shank, ha suonato con Lee Konitz. Batterista dotato di una tecnica perfetta che gli ha consentito di vincere il referendum del Down Beat dal 1947 al 1951. Batterista dallo swing preciso, grande trascinatore poco spettacolare ma molto musicale, raffinato e spiritoso. Musicista versatile, negli ultimi tempi ha anche inciso con gruppi di giovani musicisti brani che risentono, anche se marginalmente, l’influenza del rock, nei quali però la tradizione è fermamente garantita da quel mirabile batterista e direttore che egli è. Antesignano in gruppi che preannunciavano il free come quelli in duo con Giuffre e Rollins. Batterista dalla concezione musicale della percussione.

MANONE WINGY JOSEPH MATTHEWS WIMGSTON. (tr)

New Orleans, Louisiana. 13/2/1904. – Las Vegas, California. 9/7/1982.

Musicista di origine italiana, il padre chitarrista e clarinettista e la madre pianista ed egli ha avuto la disgrazia di perdere il braccio destro in giovane età, ma questo non gli ha impedito di dedicarsi alla tromba. Dopo aver suonato in varie orchestre del sud e sui battelli fluviali, nel 1924 è arrivato a New York qui è entrato nella “Crescent City Jazzers”, poi negli “Arcadia Serenaders”, nella Doc Ross’Band nel 1926. Nel 1927 ha inciso con i suoi Harmony Kings a New Orleans, poi con Red Nichols e con Benny Goodman. Nel’30 è tornato a New York ed è diventato famoso sulla 52a strada. Ha inciso con i suoi New Orleans Rhythm Kings e con Adrian Rollini. Nel 1940 si è esibito prevalentemente in California, dove ha lavorato con Matty Matlok, con Eddie Miller nel 1936, con Chu Berry, con Tony Parenti, ha collaborato con Bing Crosby in programmi radiofonici. Ben voluto per il suo carattere allegro e brillante che ha contribuito non poco al suo successo. E’ stato una delle migliori trombe bianche del jazz tradizionale di New Oreans. Ci ha lasciato un’autobiografia ”Trumpet On Wings” del 1949.

MUNTUA JAZZ TRIO.

Gruppo mantovano, nel campo del trio pianistico è tra le migliori del nostro paese. Il loro punto di forza è soprattutto il collettivo, dai toni lirici, uno spiccato melodismo ed un ottimo interplay, a parte la naturale preponderanza del pianoforte. Riescono a creare un’atmosfera tranquilla, ovattata, rilassante, con un repertorio che si richiama ai grandi trii del passato.

MANTLER KAREN (CL)

New York. 25/4/1966.

Figlia di Carla Bley e di Mike Mantler, la piccola Karen già a quattro anni è in sala di registrazione dove canta in “Escalator Over The Hill”seduta sulle ginocchia della mamma. Sempre Carla la fa esordire nella sua band, per poi licenziarla nel 1980 per essersi fatta passare per la madre alla Carnegie Hall. Musicista che passa da uno strumento all’altro sino a fermarsi al clarinetto ma senza eccessivo impegno, ha studiato composizione con la madre, ha frequentato il Berklee College of Music dal 1983 al 1987, però senza risultati apprezzabili. Nel 1987 si è trasferita New York dove ha messo su un suo gruppo. E’ rientrata nel gruppo della madre con la quale suona armonica e organo, suona anche il sintetizzatore ed interpreta brani come cantante. Ha collaborato con il “Jazz Composers Alliance”, con Terry Adams, Dan Rase, Lazy Boy, David Byrne e la “Most Unwanted Orchestra”, quest’ultima curiosa band nata da un referendum sugli strumenti meno amati.

MANTOOTH FRANK (LEAD)

Tulsa, Oklahoma. 11/4/1947. – Garden City, Kansas. 30/1/2004.

Compositore ed arrangiatore, egli si è laureato alla University of North Texas College Music nel 1969. Ha trascorso gli anni ’70 in Austria. Nel 1980 è tornato negli Stati Uniti dove ha insegnato alla DePaul University. Ha registrato con Phil Wilson, Ashley Alexander, Kirsten Gustafson, ha arrangiato per Louie Bellson, Art Farmer e per altri. Nelle sue composizioni si ritrovano insieme swing, new age, funk e latin fusion. Malgrado la miscela piuttosto inconsueta, la musica prodotta è abbastanza omogenea, grazie a degli ottimi arrangiamenti. Nella sua orchestra ospita dei solisti di fama ed a essi l’orchestra offre un sottofondo preciso ed armonico.
