GOODMAN Benny

BENNY GOODMAN DAVID. (CL)benny goodman

Chicago, Illinois. 30/5/1909. – New York. 13/6/1986.

Ha appreso i primi elementi di musica nella sinagoga e a undici anni ha debuttato con la Kehelah Jacob Synagogue, e a tredici è già ben introdotto nell’ambiente musicale di Chicago. Ha lavorato nei club e sui battelli che navigavano sui grandi laghi. Ha studiato con il maestro Franz Schoepp, ha frequentato i ragazzi della Austin Gang ed ha avuto come compagni di studi tra gli altri Jimmy McPartland e Bix Beiderbecke. Nel 1924 ha suonato con Art Kassel, nel 1925 ha suonato in California con Ben Pollack e poi con Red Nichols nel 1929. Ha lavorato alla radio con le orchestre di Andrè Kostelanetz e di Paul Whiteman, ha registrato con Joe Venuti, Eddie Lang, Ted Lewis, Adrian Rollini, i Charleston Chaser, Red Nichols, ha partecipato all’ultima seduta di incisione di Bix Beiderbecke del 1930. Ha diretto le prime sedute di incisione di Billy Holiday nel 1933, intanto ha organizzato una grande orchestra per accompagnare il cantante Russ Colombo. Nell’agosto 1935 al Palomar Ballroom di Los Angeles ha avuto la sua consacrazione come l’orchestra che ha dato inizio all’era dello swing ed anche con l’aiuto del cognato l’impresario John Hammond ha raggiunto il massimo del successo commerciale. Si è sempre garantito la collaborazione dei migliori arrangiatori del momento, come Edgar Sampson, Eddie Sauter e Feltcher Hendserson che è stato anche il suo direttore musicale. Si è circondato di eccellenti musicisti, tra i quali: Bunny Berigan, Harry James, Bud Freeman, Jess Stacy, Gene Krupa ed un ancora sconosciuto Stan Getz. Ha dato anche vita a piccoli gruppi, dal trio, al quartetto, al sestetto, ottenendo altrettanto successo di pubblico e di critica. Nel 1938 ha avuto la sua incoronazione ufficiale a “King of Swing”, con il concerto alla Carnegie Hall, allora tempio della musica classica. Nella sua carriera durata sino al 1982 vi sono state innumerevoli tournée in Europea, poi nel 1962 in Russia. Ha preso parte a numerosi film, uno in particolare quello dedicato alla sua vita. Il suo merito maggiore è stato quello che attraverso la sua musica ha fatto conoscere il jazz al grosso pubblico ed ha fatto accettare allo stesso che musicisti neri suonassero nelle orchestre dei bianchi con parità di dignità. Ha suonato anche con successo musica classica in trio con Bela Bartok, Joseph Szigeti e Aaron Copland, rivelandosi clarinettista classico di prim’ordine. Strumentista impeccabile, raffinato, dalla voce elegante e nitida dalla dinamica portentosa, mirabile il modo come suona i toni più delicati, è considerato come uno dei maggiori stilisti del jazz. Socialmente è stato un uomo intelligente, pieno di fascino, molto gentile, la sua personalità è stata determinante per l’affermazione del Jazz presso il grosso pubblico. Ha fatto scuola dando vita ad un periodo nel quale sono nate molte grandi orchestre swing. Ha inciso qualche volta sotto lo pseudonimo di: Shoeless Joe Jackson.

GOOFUS FIVE (THE)

Gruppo ridotto dei California Ramblers, attivo dal 1924 al 1929. E’ un gruppo nato su iniziativa del manager Ed Kirkeby, che già conduceva le sorti della California Ramblers, in contrapposizione ai “Five Pennies” di Red Nichols, che all’epoca non aveva rivali a New York. Ne hanno fatto parte: Chelsea Quealey, Adrian Rollini, Stanley King, Jack Russin, Bobby Davis. Il risultato non fù eclatante, il gruppo spesso sconfinò nella involontaria parodia, determibati brani resi gloriosi e famosi da gli Armstrong, da Oliver e Williams diventano tragiche caricature, anche per l’apporto solistico nettamente inferiore ai modelli inseguiti..
