BARNES GEORGE (G)

South Chicago Heights, Illinois. 17/7/1921. – Concord, California. 5/9/1977.

Dal padre, maestro di musica, ha preso lezioni di chitarra e nel 1937 ha diretto il suo primo quartetto in giro per il Middlewest. Nel 1939 è stato assunto alla NBC e poi nel 1942 è andato a Chicago per un ingaggio con Bud Freeman. Insieme a Bucky Pizzarelli ha messo su un ottimo duo di chitarre. La sua attività prevalente è stata in studio; ha inciso con Ernie Royal, Lawson/Haggart, Ruby Braff, Clarence Williams, Joe Venuti con il quale ha prodotto diversi album notevoli. Purtroppo la sua attività è stata troncata da un infarto. Chitarrista che, in un’epoca di free e rock, è rimasto legato alla tradizione swing.

BARNET CHARLIE DALY. (AS-LEAD)

New York 26/10/1913. – LaJolle, California. 3/9/1991.

La sua passione per la musica ed il jazz in particolare è stato il suo gioco preferito sin da bambino. Egli ha iniziato a studiare il sax alto e con esso ha esordito ad appena 15 anni. La sua ricca famiglia ne voleva fare un avvocato, ma Charlie aveva scelto la musica ed a 16 anni ha diretto già una orchestrina a bordo di un transatlantico. Terminati gli studi, nel 1930 ha iniziato a suonare professionalmente a Syracuse, quindi si è trasferito a New York dove ha messo su un suo complesso. La popolarità è arrivata nel 1939 con la registrazione dei dischi “Skyliner” e un’altra sua composizione ”Cherokee” che sono diventate le sigle di molti programmi radiofonici per la loro vivacità ed orecchiabilità. E’ stato forse il primo musicista bianco che si è presentato sul palcoscenico avendo nella sua orchestra musicisti di colore e di notevole valore, come Roy Eldridge, Howard McGhee, Benny Carter, Dizzy Gillespie, Clark Terry e Oscar Pettiford. Tra alti e bassi ha continuato a lavorare per molti anni, sino al 1966. Non è stato un grande solista, è stato invece un ottimo capo orchestra, innamorato di Ellington ha cercato di imprimere all’orchestra il suo stile. Ha avuto sempre la collaborazione di ottimi arrangiatori come Horace Henderson, Skip Martin, Billy May che hanno dato alla sua orchestra una poliritmia piena di swing, un suono scintillante, moderato e cantabile, dai sovracuti esplosivi delle trombe. Ha inciso con Red Norvo, Nat King Cole, ha fatto parte della Metronome All Stars Leaders. Ha inciso anche sotto lo pseudonimo di Dale Bennet.

BARON JOEY (DR)

Richmond, Virginia. 26/6/1955.

E’ nato in una famiglia ebrea della working class. Si è formato prevalentemente da autodidatta, attraverso l’attenta osservazione degli altri batteristi e l’ascolto di dischi, radio e televisione. Le sue prime influenze spaziano dagli ospiti dell’Ed Sullivan show e la sigla del telefilm “The Wild Wild West” alle incisioni di Art Blakey, Ray Charles, Booker T. and the M.G.’s, James Brown, i Beatles e Jimi Hendrix. Ha cominciato a suonare a nove anni ed a undici ha fatto parte di un gruppo rock. Ha ascoltato il jazz alla radio e questo è diventata la sua musica. Si è messo in evidenza nei gruppi di avanguardia newyorkese, i “Naked City” di John Zorn e soprattutto per la sua lunga associazione con Bill Frisell. Si è esibito e ha inciso con un numero impressionante di grandi artisti tra cui spiccano Carmen McRae, Dizzy Gillespie, Tony Bennett, Hampton Hawes, Chet Baker, Laurie Anderson, Art Pepper, Stan Getz, Jay McShann, David Bowie, The Los Angeles Philharmonic, Big Joe Turner, Philip Glass, John Abercrombie, Mel Lewis, Pat Martino, Harry Sweets Edison, David Sanborn, Al Jarreau, Jim Hall, Randy Brecker, Marian McPartland, John Scofield, Ray Anderson, Richard Galliano e i Lounge Lizards. Joey Baron inoltre è co-leader del gruppo “Miniature” (insieme a Tim Berne e Hank Roberts). Ha suonato nel gruppo “Masada” di John Zorn, con Dave Douglas (tromba) e Greg Cohen (basso). E’ leader di suoi gruppi come il trio “Barondown”, il “Baron Trio” e il “Killer Joey”. Ha anche diretto una allstar band che ha visto la partecipazione di Ron Carter, Arthur Blythe e Bill Frisell. Con questo gruppo ha inciso per la serie Songline/Tone Field della Intuition “Down Home” un cd di proprie composizioni originali ispirate alle sonorità R&B del sud degli Stati Uniti, sua zona d’origine. Si è esibito anche in duo con Bill Frisell e da solo. Un brano da lui inciso in solitudine, “Alfie”, è stato pubblicato nel CD “Great Jewish Music: Burt Bacharach” (Knitting Factory Works) E’ uno dei più validi batteristi degli anni’90, molto potente ma anche versatile, dalla grande agilità capace di sostenere ogni scanzione, di moltiplicarla o frammentarla senza mai abbandonare i valori timbrici e l’armonia.

BARRETT DAN (TB)

Pasadena, California. 14/12/1955.

Musicista che si è mosso con molta disinvoltura dal dixieland allo swing. Ha iniziato a studiare il trombone al liceo e a suonare in California. Il suo primo gruppo è la “Back Bay Jazz Band”, con la quale propone la musica di King Oliver e di Jelly Roll Morton, poi ha suonato nella “South Frisco Jazz” e nella “Golden Eagle Jaz Band” due gruppi eccellenti di jazz tradizionale. Ha partecipato al Festival di Breda del 1977 con la “West Coast Sunset Music Company” e a questo punto ha deciso di intraprendere la carriera di musicista. Ha affinato la sua tecnica nei Jazz Club, ha incontrato Howard Alden e si è trasferito con lui a New York, entrando nella “Widerspread Depression Orchestra”, nella quale ha avuto anche il compito di comporre. In seguito ha frequentato e si è esibito all’Eddie Condon’s Jazz Club. Spesso ha collaborato con Scott Hamilton e Warren Vachè, che lo hanno fatto conoscere ed apprezzare, e che hanno contribuito notevolmente alla sua ascesa nel campo sia musicale che personale. Nel 1985 ha suonato con Benny Goodman, con Buck Clayton ed ha firmato un contratto con la Concord. Nel 1990 è stato riconosciuto come il miglior trombonista della nuova generazione nel campo dello swing revival. L’ultima sua formazione è stata la “International Swing Society”. Ha partecipato a diversi film, tra i quali il famoso Cotton Club. E’ stato definito il nuovo Vic Dickenson. Ottimo musicista di mainstream, senz’altro uno dei migliori apparso sulla scena del jazz degli anni’80 e ‘90. I suoi gruppi hanno prodotto una musica molto godibile, piena di swing.

Ha registrato anche con Freddie Hubbard nel 1972. E’ indicato come il più jazzista dei percussionisti, è capace con il suo tocco di aggiungere melodia al normale ritmo.

BARRON ARTHUR (ST-SA-FL)

Boston, Massachussetts.

Ha iniziato a suonare la batteria e la tromba, per poi passare al sax alto. Ha frequentato la Berklee School Of Music ed ha iniziato a suonare il flauto ed è attirato dal Bebop e dal rhythm-and-blues. E’ giunto alla cronaca per essere stato uno dei maggiori artefici della riuscita di un progetto chiamato “Afro Blue Band” prodotto poi insieme a Todd Barkan, un omaggio alla filosofia contenuta nella musica di Roland Kirk cioè l’idea del creare insieme. Gruppo che ha fatto sua questa filosofia e nel quale prevale il concetto di comunità. Ha collaborato anche con l’orchestra diretta da Eddie Henderson e Julian Priester. Ha preso lezioni si sax tenore da Pharoah Sanders. Dopo un periodo trascorso in Spagna, si è stabilito a New York, dove nel 1980 ha diretto una banda funk i “Flying Tigers”. Si è quindi trasferito in Florida dove ha aperto anche un club il “Tropics International”.
