BRENDERS STAN, CONSTANT. (P-LEAD)

Bruxelles, Belgio. 31-/5/1904. – Bruxelles, Belgio. 1/6/1969.

Nonostante il periodo particolare, c’era l’occupazione nazista, sembra impossibile che una musica creativa come il jazz possa essere sopravvissuta in paesi come il Belgio. A Brenders è riuscito, naturalmente ricorrendo anche a dei trucchi, quello di annunciare alla radio di titoli dei brani tradotti in francese. E’ uno dei musicisti più originali espressi dalla storia del jazz belga, direttore d’orchestra, ha iniziato la carriera intorno agli anni ’20. Il suo primo impegno è stato con Chas Remue con il quale ha lavorato a Londra ed a Parigi tra il 1925 ed il 1927. Ha iniziato la carriera di solista, in tale veste ha partecipato a molti festival, ha lavora nei club e nel 1939 alla radio belga. La sua prima performance americana nel 1936 nel George Gershwin’s Concert, che F.Brenders ha riproposto alla radio belga. Nel 1942 in una serie di spettacoli in tour in Belgio ha ospitato nel suo gruppo il chitarrista Django Reinhardt, con il quale ha anche registrato. In seguito l’orchestra si è rivolta più ad un repertorio commerciale.

BREUKER WILLEM (TS-SS-SA-CL)

Amsterdam, Paesi Bassi, Olanda. 4/11/1944.

Musicista autodidatta, ha studiato da solo tutte le ance e si è interessato anche di strumenti popolari. Ha avuto una sua composizione premiata in un concorso per dilettanti. Nel 1967 ha collaborato alla fondazione dell’Instant Composers Pool e nel 1973 ha fondato una propria casa discografica la Bvhaast ed un nuovo gruppo il ”Willen Breuker Kollektief”. Compositore di musiche per teatro e cinema. Musicista free olandese sulla scia di Dolphy spesso si è esibito sul clarinetto basso. E’ stato definito il Kurt Weill del jazz, per la sua mania di attingere a fonti di ispirazione dalla musica popolare europea del XIX secolo. Ha fatto parte del gruppo dei radicali, in rotta con i musicisti americani. Buon solista ed efficace arrangiatore.

BREWER TERESA (VC)

Toledo, Ohio. 7/5/1931.

Cantante pop di grande successo degli anni’50. Nel 1972 ha sposato Bob Thiele che l’ha stimolata a cantare del jazz e le ha fatto incidere sulle sue etichette. Il risultato non è stato eccellente. Anche se dotata di una voce genuina, ben impostata e con una buona carica di swing. Ha cantato con Earl Hines, Duke Ellington, Thad Jones, Count Basie, Bobby Hacket, Gato Barbieri. Ha affrontato i repertori del Duca, di Fats Waller e di Bessie Smith con grande energia, con swing ed umorismo insospettabili. Ma per quanti sforzi siano stati fatti ella è rimasta una cantante leggera, dalla voce suadente di ragazzina maliziosa, piena si smorfie, dal particolare gioco dinamico.
