BECHET Sidney

BECHET SIDNEY, JOSEPH. (SS)

New Orleans, 14/5/1897. – Parigi, Francia. 14/5/1959.

Ha avuto come maestro il clarinettista George Baquet anche se marginalmente poiché ha imparato tutto da solo. Nel 1914 ha fatto il suo esordio professionale nella Eagle Band. Ha lasciato il gruppo per seguire Clarence Williams in una tournée da effettuare nel Texas. Nel 1917 dopo un breve ingaggio nella Olympia Band di King Oliver si è recato a Chicago dove ha lavorato con Freddie Keppard. E’ partito per il vecchio Continente con la Southern Syncopated Orchestra diretta da Will Marion Cook. E’ restato in Europa e dopo aver suonato per diversi anni in vari gruppi arrivando sino in Unione Sovietica è tornato in patria dove ha suonato con Duke Ellington, ha inciso con Clarence Williams. Insieme a Louis Armstrong, nel 1928 è stato ingaggiato da Nobble Sissle. Nel frattempo è passato dal clarinetto al sax soprano. Nel 1932 ha messo su il suo primo gruppo i “New Orleans Feetwarmers” con il quale ha ottenuto un ingaggio al famoso Savoy di New York e ha registrato una serie di dischi fondamentali. Nel 1939 ha registrato un disco con Jelly Roll Morton. Dopo la guerra si è dedicato solo alle incisioni ed ai concerti dal vivo nei locali della 52° strada di New York con piccoli complessi da lui diretti ottenendo un grande successo. Ha inciso diversi dischi diventati storici con Muggsy Spanier e con Milton Mezz Merrow. Ha inciso inoltre con Louis Armstrong, Bunk Johnson, Mezz Mezzrow, Frank Newton. E’ tornato spesso in Europa dove ha ricevuto dovunque una calorosa accoglienza, ha sostato prevalentemente a Parigi dove ha finito per stabilirsi definitivamente e qui ha suonato con Claude Luter. In suo onore è stato eretto un busto opera dello scultore Abel Chretien a Juan Le Pins sulla Costa azzurra, una copia dello stesso monumento è stata collocata a distanza di 30 anni nel 1996 a New Orleans nella piazza a lui dedicata. E’ stato uno dei più originali suonatori di clarinetto ed in seguito ha trasformato il sax soprano in una voce unica, potente ed espressiva che nella storia del Jazz trova unico confronto in quella di John Coltrane. Musicista dalla personalità esuberante, molto emotiva egli ha sempre dominato i gruppi con il suo suono potente e trascinante. E’ stato un precursore della sovraincisione registrando nel 1946 due brani nei quali suona clarinetto, sax soprano, sax tenore, pianoforte, contrabasso e batteria. Durante il primo soggiorno europeo ha progettato una suite per clarinetto e orchestra della quale però è rimasto solo un movimento per violino e pianoforte che è stato presentato per la prima volta in assoluto nel 1995 al Festival di Pescara. Ha inciso spesso sotto lo pseudonimo di Pops King.

BECHET LEGACY.

Complesso diretto da Bob Wilber, nato nel 1981 che ha fatto il suo esordio pubblico al Bechet’s Club di New York. I membri del gruppo sono in numero da quattro a sette elementi, tra i quali anche la moglie di Wilber la cantante Joanne”Pug”Horton. Il gruppo non copia lo stile di Bechet, ma ha posto l’attenzione sulla sua abilità di compositore e di leader. Il gruppo ha fatto tournée in U.S.A., Europa ed in India, si è sciolto nel 1984. Negli anni’90 è stato ricostituito da Wilber con qualche cambiamento e nel 1995 ha suonato e registrato in Germania.chiusura

BECK JEFF (G)

Surrey, Inghilterra. 24/6/1944.

Ha iniziato suonando con Lord Sutch, poi con gli Yardbirds nel 1964, si è fatto notare per il suo modo originale di suonare e nel 1967 ha messo su un suo gruppo il ”Jeff Beck Group” particolarmente votato al blues. Un grave incidente lo hanno tenuto lontano dall’attività sino al 1972, quando ha ricostituito un nuovo gruppo di rock soul. Nel 1975 ha suonato con la Mahavisnu Orchestra, poi con Stanley Clarke nel 1976. Chitarrista disinvolto, è riuscito a far parlare e cantare il suo strumento, musicista dal solismo spregiudicato.

BECKETT FRED FREDERIC LEE. (TB)

Nellerton, Mississippi. 23/11/1917. – St. Louis, 30/1/1946.

Si è trasferito ancora bambino con la famiglia a Kansas City dove ha iniziato a studiare il trombone a cinque anni. Comincia a suonare con gruppi locali e nel 1934 si è trasferito a St. Louis dove ha suonato nei “Crackerjacks Of Saint Louis” diretti da Eddie Johnson. In seguito suona con Duke Wright, con Buster Smith, con Prince Stewart, con i famosi “Cloud Of Joy” di Andy Kirk. Nel 1937 si è trasferito ad Omaha, nel Nebraska dove entra a fare parte del gruppo di Nta Towles, contrabbassista di New Orleans. Nel 1938 è tornato a Kansas City dove collabora con Tommy Douglas e nel 1939 è entrato nella “Harlan Leonard’s Kansas City Rockets”, probabilmente la migliore territori band dell’epoca con la quale ha registrato anche dei buoni dischi. Egli però sino al 1940 non ha avuto altre possibilità di farsi conoscere in campo nazionale, quando finalmente è arrivata la scrittura con l’orchestra di Lionel Hampton. Purtroppo a causa del famoso sciopero indetto dall’American Federation of Musicians, i suoi preziosi assoli con Hampton non ci sono arrivati. Chiamato alle armi egli durante questo servizio ha contratto la tubercolosi che lo porta alla morte due anni dopo. Strumentista dalla eccezionali qualità tecniche e dalle concezioni armoniche precorritrici, è stato sempre citato ad esempio dal grande Jay Jay Johnson che in ogni intervista lo ha ricordato. chiusura
