VAUGHAN Sarah

VAUGHAN SARAH LOIS, SASSY. (VC)

Newark, New Jersey. 27/3/1924. – Los Angeles, California. 3/4/1990.

Giovanissima ha preso delle lezioni di piano e canto e ha frequentato la Mount Zion Baptiste Church della città, dove ha suonato l’organo e ha fatto parte del coro come solista. Spinta dagli amici ha preso parte al concorso per dilettanti all’Apollo di Harlem, dove ha vinto un premio, lo stesso vinto qualche anno prima da Ella Fitzgerald, ma soprattutto raccomandata da Billy Eckstine nel 1943 è entrata nell’orchestra di Earl Hines, come seconda pianista e cantante. L’anno dopo ha fatto parte della grande orchestra organizzata dallo stesso Billy Eckstine, con il quale è arrivato il successo completo, anche e soprattutto perché ha dimostrato di essere dotata di mezzi vocali non comuni. Le viene dato l’appellativo di “The Divine”, e diviene una delle cantanti più famose al mondo. Ha registrato nel 1944 con Dizzy Gillespie la prima versione vocale di “Night In Tunisia”, nel maggio dell’anno dopo con Gillespie e Charlie Parker ha registrato Lover Man e Mean To Me, che hanno dimostrato la sua grande capacità di inserirsi con la sua voce nel tessuto strumentale. Ha registrato anche con Tadd Dameron e con Max Roach. E’ stata sposata tre volte, con il primo dei suoi mariti George Treadwell, dal 1946 al 1958, un manager che le ha insegnato a migliorare la sua presenza scenica in modo da essere a proprio agio tra il jazz e lo spettacolo. In seguito è stata sposata con Clyde Atkins dal 1958 al 1961 e con Waymond Reed dal 1978 al 1981. Non potendo avere figli ha adottato una bambina Debra Lois nel 1961. Nel 1950 ha registrato con il gruppo di Jimmy Jones, poi con Miles Davis. Arrivato il contratto con la Mercury, nel 1954 ha registrato un album con Clifford Brown, che contiene forse le sue più belle interpretazioni e che la consacrano signora del Jazz. Altre incisioni con Quincy Jones, con Ernie Wilkins e con l’orchestra di Count Basie. Ottime registrazioni anche quelle effettuate con il suo trio con Jimmy Jones al pianoforte. Innumerevoli le sue partecipazioni e le sue incisioni, sopratutto con orchestre da studio dirette dal marito George Treadwell. Negli anni ’60 ha inciso con Benny Carter, con Barney Kessel, con Oscar Peterson, Michel Legrand, Jimmy Rowles e tanti altri. L’album che è un compendio delle sue capacità dinamiche, lo swing e la prodigalità interpretativa delle sue prestazioni dal vivo e quello registrato con il suo trio al Tivoli di Copenhagen “Sassy Swings The Tivoli”. Cantante sempre a livelli superlativi, vera professionista. E’ in debito con Parker, Gillespie ed Eckstine, la cui frequentazione ha influito notevolmente sull’originalità del suo stile vocale e la sua maturità musicale. Vocalist dalla estensione eccezionale, un magnifico connubio di contralto, soprano e soprano leggero, cosa che gli ha permesso dei salti di registro di grande ampiezza. E’ stata senza altro la prima e la più grande voce moderna del jazz, il suo contralto era una voce operistica di prima scelta, uno strumento dalla vastissima gamma di possibilità che lei controllava con la perizia di un grande solista di Jazz. E’ stata soprannominata affettuosamente Sassy e molto amata dai musicisti, Frank Sinatra ha detto di lei, che quando la ascoltava cantare gli faceva venire la voglia di tagliarsi le vene con un rasoio poco affilato. E’ stata protagonista di festival e tournée internazionali, ha girato anche un film per la 20th Century Fox intitolato “Murder Inc”. Nonostante il successo e l’esperienza di tanti anni ha continuato ad avere il panico da palcoscenico. Socievolissima e generosa con i colleghi, quanto riservata e spesso timida con gli estranei. Le piaceva molto fare vita notturna, dopo le esibizioni amava restare a festeggiare e soprattutto a bere, anche se questo suo vizio non ha influito mai sulle sue prestazioni. Il suo consumo di droga è stato sempre molto discreto ed era anche una grande fumatrice, cosa che probabilmente ha causato il cancro ai polmoni che l’ha portata alla morte a 64 anni. Per nostra fortuna tutto ciò non ha mai avuto effetti deleteri sulla sua voce, sempre splendida, anche se negli ultimi anni probabilmente ha contribuito ha renderla mirabilmente più buia.

VAUGHN JOHN, MAURICE (G-VC)

Chicago, Illinois. 10/5/1952.

Rappresentante del contemporaneo Chicago blues, come altri suoi colleghi cerca di aggiornare la tradizione e lo fa senza snaturarla. Ha iniziato l’attività nel 1968 come sassofonista in gruppi di rhythm-and-blues di Chicago, poi ha collaborato con Phil Guy e nel 1979 ha fatto un tour in Canada. Ha collaborato anche con Luther Allison, Son Seals, Jumior Wells, Valerie Wellington e A.C.Reed. La sua prima registrazione da solista è del 1984. Le sue interpretazioni sono piene di lirismo e sempre prive di enfasi. Nel suo modo di cantare e suonare alterna lamenti angosciosi a scatti di rabbia feroce.

V-DISC.

Letteralmente Victory Disc, Dischi della Vittoria. Nel 1941 il Dipartimento della Guerra degli Stati Uniti ha deciso di varare una iniziativa che è decollata l’anno successivo, creare un’etichetta discografica, fuori commercio ad uso e consumo dei militari operanti sui vari fronti e nelle varie armi. Dischi a 78 giri del diametro di 30 cm ed infrangibili (si fa per dire) che hanno contribuito a far sentire più vicina l’aria di casa ai militari. Tutti i musicisti che hanno partecipato alle registrazioni non hanno percepito alcun compenso. Di essi ne sono stati registrati e prodotti 900. Sotto il profilo storico essi hanno documentato un periodo della musica americana nel quale, a causa del famoso sciopero indetto dai musicisti, terminato ufficialmente il 14 dicembre 1948, nessun musicista ha registrato in uno studio di incisione. La Warner Fonit ne ha realizzato una serie di n.25 CD.

VENTURA RAY, RAYMOND (LEAD)

Parigi, Francia. 16/4/1908.  Palma Di Maiorca, Spagna. 30/3/1979

Leader della più famosa orchestra francese da ballo degli anni’30. E’ ricordato soprattutto per aver creato un jazz spettacolo, poiche le sue esibizioni erano arricchite da sketch e canzoni popolari. Il primo gruppo è nato nel 1924 “The Collegians”, ispirato alle grandi orchestre bianche americane, delle quali aveva ascoltato molti dischi ed era riuscito ad avere molte partiture. Ha fatto anche delle tourne in Europa e con lo scoppio della guerra si è ritirato prima in Svizzera e poi nell’America Latina dove ha continua l’attività con successo. Finita la guerra è tornato in Europa e ha messo sù una nuova formazione e ha rinnovato il vecchio successo.
