BLAKEY Art

BLAKEY ART ABDULLAH IBN BUHAINA. (DR)

Pittsburgh, Pensylvania. 11/10/1919. – New York, 16/10/1990.

Batterista pirotecnico e grande innovatore. Egli è stato l’emblema dell’avanguardia della batteria nel jazz per tre generazioni di musicisti. Grande musicista ma anche grande scopritore di talenti. Ha studiato il pianoforte con il quale ha iniziato la sua carriera. Non si conosce il vero motivo per il quale ha lasciato il pianoforte per la batteria, uno dei più attendibili è che, nell’orchestra dove lavorava, venne a mancare il batterista per malattia e lui fu invitato a prenderne il posto. Nel 1939 ha suonato nell’orchestra di Fletcher Henderson, poi nel 1940 con Mary Lou Williams, nel 1944 con quella di Billy Eckstine. Alla fine del 1947 ha partecipato a delle registrazioni insieme a Thelonious Monk ed è entrato nella Blue Note. Si è convertito all’islamismo ed ha assunto il nome di Abdullah Ibn Buhaina. Si è recato in India poi in Africa dove ha sostato per due anni nella regione di Accra e poi in Nigeria, da quel momento la cultura di quel continente sarà sempre presente nella sua musica. Nel 1949 è tornato in America dove ha lavorato con Lucky Millinder, poi con Earl Hines, Zoot Sims, Buddy De Franco e si è incontrato di nuovo in sala di registrazione con Monk, la cui musica era uno stimolo perfetto per le sue idee. Ha collaborato con Miles Davis nel 1952. Nel 1954 ha fondato i “Jazz Messengers” insieme a Horace Silver, idea che è stata poi ripresa nel 1956, data in cui è nato ufficialmente il gruppo degli “Art Blakey Jazz Messegners”. In questo gruppo si sono avvicendati molti grandi musicisti già affermati e molti per i quali questa prima esperienza è stata molto importante nel proseguo della loro carriera, tanto che la maggior parte di loro sono diventati dei famosi leaders. Gruppo che è stato un modello per diverse generazioni di giovani. Nel 1987 ha ricevuto dal Berklee College Of Music di Boston l’Honorary Degree di dottore in musica. Con Kenny Clarke, Max Roach ha fatto della batteria uno strumento di primo piano. Il batterista moderno più irruente, la potente carica che veniva dal suo drumming costringeva i suoi solisti a dare il massimo. Egli ha sempre preteso che gli altri musicisti adattassero il loro modo di suonare a quello della sua batteria. Personaggio genuino, dalla grande carica umana e di simpatia. E’ stato uno dei primi ad introdurre nel jazz strumenti, tecniche e suonatori originari dell’Africa.

BLANCHARD PIERRE (VIOL)

Francia, 1956.

BLANCHARD TERENCE, OLIVER SR. (TP)

New Orleans, Louisiana. 13/3/1962.

Ha compiuto gli studi presso il New Orleans Center for the Creative Art e qui ha conosciuto Donald Harrison con il quale si ritrova nell’80 in un loro gruppo. Ha suonato nella New Orleans Civic Orchestra, si è trasferito a New York e si è iscritto ad un corso di tromba classica alla Ritgers University e con l’aiuto di Paul Jeffrey è entrato nell’orchestra di Lionel Hampton. E’ stato assunto al posto di Wynton Marsalis nei Messengers nel 1982, nel cui gruppo ha svolto anche il compito di direttore musicale. Ha formato in seguito un quintetto con Donald Harrison, ha suonato con Larry Willis. Tecnicamente ineccepibile, dal timbro caldo e dal fraseggio deciso ma tranquillo, risente in positivo degli studi classici. Si è segnalato come una delle migliori trombe dell’ultima generazione.

BLAND BOBBY ROBIN CALVIN “BLUE”. (VC)

Rosemark, Tennessee. 27/1/1930.

Cantante che più di ogni altro è riuscito ad interpretare meglio l’incontro tra il blues ed il gospel. E’ stato il tipico cantante soul. Il suo senso del rituale, l’emotività e il lirismo, la passione e la sensualità sono frutti del sud nero dal quale egli proviene. Ha fatto anche tesoro di alcuni celebri modelli, come B. B. King, Ira Tucker ed il reverendo C. L. Franklin padre di Aretha, ma anche di celebri crooners bianchi come Perry Como e Tony Bennett. Protagonista incontrastato nel circuito dei bar, dei teatrini e delle taverne dei ghetti nordamericani, con il suo modo di porgersi misurato sia nella voce che nella teatralità è stato in grado di instaurare un rapporto ritualistico con il suo pubblico, specie quello femminile. Artisticamente il gemello di Ray Charles, anche se meno famoso.

Chattanooga, Tennessee. Ott. 1921. – Monrovia, California. 30/7/1942.

Ha iniziato suonando il violino in un gruppo locale diretto dalla madre pianista. Ha frequentato il Tennessee State College ed ha iniziato a suonare il basso.

La sua tecnica strumentale, le sue idee moderne ed innovative nell’usare lo strumento, hanno influenzato intere generazioni di bassisti.chiusura

BLAST UNIT ORCHESTRA.

Organico nato nel 2001 in seno al “Collettivo jazzisti autogestiti milanesi”. Orchestra che ha fatto sue l’esperienze dell’avanguardia storica statunitense. Ha partecipato con successo al “Ah-Um Jazz Festival” di Milano e nel 2005 ha registrato presso gli studi della RAI il primo disco a suo nome. Essa non ha un leader, ma il gruppo di giovani improvvisatori che segue le procedure orchestrale ispirate da Charles Mingus e da Gil Evans, con assoli sempre funzionali al collettivo. Una realtà espressiva importante in significativa ascesa.
