BERGMAN Borah

BERGMAN BORAH (P)

New York, 13/12/1926. – Boston 18/10/2012

Nato da genitori russi emigrati in America dopo la rivoluzione. Famiglia di musicisti, il nonno cantante, la madre pianista, il padre suonatore di mandolino ed una sorella folksinger. A sette anni ha iniziato a studiare il pianoforte ed a tredici è passato al clarinetto. Ha lasciato la musica per scrivere racconti ma poi a 24 anni vi è tornato. Personaggio particolare dalla vita privata molto riservata. Vicino alle idee di Tristano, ha lavorato in solitudine con molto impegno sviluppando una sua personalità. Ha iniziato il suo percorso professionale negli anni’70. Pianista dalla grande tecnica e linguaggio modernissimo è un pò il riassunto del piano jazz e della musica europea del ’900. Ha sviluppato una sua tecnica particolare che lo ha portato ad avere una mano sinistra più potente e duttile della destra. Ha registrato con Andrew Cyrille con Thomas Chapin, con Evan Parker. Negli anni ’90 ha collaborato con Thomas Borgman, Peter Brotzmann, con Anthony Braxton, Roscoe Mitchell, con il cantante Tom Buckner.

BERIGAN BUNNY BERNARD ROWLAND. (TP)

Fox Lake, Wisconsin. 1909. – New York 2/6/1942.

Ha debuttato nel 1930 con Hal Kemp, ha suonato poi con i New Orleans Rhythm Kings e con Fred Rich. All’inizio degli anni ’30 si è trasferito a New York dove ha lavorato come musicista indipendente, nel 1931 con i Dorsey Brothers, con C.Bullock e Smith Ballew. Nel 1932 è stato ingaggiato da Paul Whiteman, poi da Abe Lyman, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller Adrian Rollini. In seguito ha suonato con Red McKenzie, Red Norvo, Ray Noble, Billy Holiday, Fats Waller, Bud Freeman, Dorsey Brothers. Nel 1936 ha costituito una sua orchestra con la quale ha registrato ”I can’t get started with you” nel quale Berigan canta il ritornello e che è diventato un brano leggendario fra gli appassionati. Nel 1940 ha collaborato con Tommy Dorsey ed in seguito ha ricostituito una sua orchestra che ha diretto sino alla morte. Musicista di notevole talento ma come molti trombettisti della sua generazione penalizzato dall’alcolismo. Tromba che ha subito l’influenza di Louis Armstrong e di Bix Beiderbecke, piena di emotività lirica specie nel registro grave e dalla grande facilità di improvvisazione.

BERKMAN DAVID (P)

Cleveland, Ohio. 28/12/1958.

Figlio di pianista, dopo aver studiato per breve tempo il basso si è dedicato con impegno nello studio del pianoforte. Ha frequentato il Berklee College di Boston e dopo essersi laureato è tornato a Cleveland dove, insieme al bassista Junie Booth ed al batterista Greg Bandy, ha accompagnato molti musicisti di passaggio. Nel 1985 si é trasferito a New York dove ha suonato con Tom Harrell, Billy Hart, Eliot Zigmund, Cecil McBee, Scott Wedholt, Rich Perry. Nel 1989 ha fatto una tournée con la Woody Herman Band, ha suonato anche con Matt Wilson, Joe Lovano, Ray Drumond e la Vanguard Orchestra. Pianista che si è mosso nell’ambito del moderno mainstream. Solista dal tocco delicato, molto incisivo e lirico. Nelle sue composizioni tiene conto soprattutto del sound del gruppo, esse sono scritte anche a seconda delle tendenze dei solisti che le devono eseguire. Fa parte della corrente pianistica cosidetta impressionistica della scuola di Debussy.

BERLIN CONTEMPORARY JAZZ ORCHESTRA.

Fondata nel 1988 da Alex von Schlippenbach, é nata come una orchestra di soli elementi berlinesi ma in seguito ha allargato i confini ed è diventata internazionale. Nelle sue fila ha annoverato vari ospiti: Willem Breuker, Carla Bley, Misha Mengelberg, Kenny Wheeler. Nel corso degli anni ha ospitato anche molti musicisti europei, americani e giapponesi. I solisti più in vista che si sono alternati sono stati: Paul Lovens, Henry Lowther, Evan Parker, Paul Rutherford, e la moglie di Schlippenbach. Stilisticamente molto eterodossa, in relazione proprio ai suoi componenti.

BERLIN IRVING ISRAEL BALINE. (COMP)

Temun, Siberia, Russia. 11/5/1888. – U.S.A. 22/9/1989.

Musicista emigrato negli Stati Uniti nel 1893 dove è cresciuto nell’Est Side di New York. E’ rimasto orfano e si è guadagnato da vivere vendendo giornali e cantando per la strada. Nel 1906 a diciotto anni ha fatto il cameriere cantante ed ha iniziato a fare il paroliere per l’editore musicale Ted Snyder e con il nome di Irving Berlin ha composto le prime canzoni ”That Mesmerizing Mendelssohn Tune” e ”Dorando” sulle gesta del maratoneta Dorando Petri, poi ha scritto ”Sadie Salome Go Home”. Nel 1911 ha composto ”Alexander Ragtime Band” con grande successo. Ha fondato quindi una sua casa editrice, ed ha composto per Zigfield musiche da film. Ha scritto oltre 750 canzoni ed è stato il più celebre ed il più fecondo autore di canzoni americane. Musicista dal bagaglio tecnico poverissimo, egli sapeva suonare il piano solo sui tasti neri, escogitando però un ingegnoso metodo per spostare l’intera tastiera sulla tonalità desiderata, ed ha avuto chi gli ha trasferito sulla carta le sue melodie.

Composizioni:

All alone-Always-Avalon-Be careful it’ heart-A pretty girl is like a melody-Blue Skies-Cheek To Cheek-How deep is the ocean-I believe-I love piano-I’m puttin all my eggs in am basket-Isn’t this a lovely day-I’ve got my love to keep me warm-I’ve got then sun in the morning-Late late show-Let’s face the music and dance-Remember-Russian lullaby-Say it isn’t so-Softly light and sweet music-The best thing for you-They say it’s wonderfull-This year’s kines-You forgot to remember-He ain’t got rhythm.chiusura

BERMAN SONNY SAUL. (TP)

New Haven, Connecticut. 21/4/1924. – New York 16/1/1947.

Ha debuttato a sedici anni con l’orchestra di Louis Prima, ha suonato poi con Sonny Durham, Tommy Dorsey, Boyd Raeburn, George Auld, Harry James, Benny Goodman e infine nel 1945 con Woody Herman con il quale si è affermato come solista di ottime qualità. Purtroppo la sua splendida carriera è stata troncata a soli 23 anni da un attacco cardiaco o da una overdose. Tromba dalle esecuzioni veloci e precise che non è riuscita ad esprimere quanto il suo potenziale avrebbe permesso. Tra le sue composizioni la più famosa resta, Sonny Speaks, lanciata da Herman.
