Veteran drummer Danny Gottlieb will join us to dissect the art and craft of jazz drumming, and we’ll explore how one simple invention targeting the drummer’s feet set the stage for a hundred years of jazz drumming evolution. And we’ll dig deep into what makes a drum solo more than just a bunch of noise, and explore the life and legend of one of jazz drumming’s most colorful heroes: the great Buddy Rich.</span></p><p><a href="http://thenewjazzarchive.com/shows/drumming.html" target="_blank">Listen to this episode.</a> Thu, 14 Aug 2014 11:56:00 +0000 Jeff Haas 20841 at http://interlochenpublicradio.org The Art of Jazz Drumming Blue Note Records http://interlochenpublicradio.org/post/blue-note-records-0 <p><span style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: normal; orphans: auto; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: auto; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; display: inline !important; float: none; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">This week on The New Jazz Archive, it’s the real-life legend of the label synonymous with the best in jazz since 1939: Blue Note Records. We’ll spend the hour talking with veteran Blue Note man Michael Cuscuna about the label’s humble beginnings in a New York apartment, the rise of the so-called Blue Note sound in the 1950s, and how commercial success ironically led to Blue Note’s undoing in the 1960s. And we’ll hear how Blue Note has now found its way back into the hearts and playlists of contemporary jazz fans, and explore how the photography of Blue Note co-founder Francis Wolff shaped—and continues to shape—the Blue Note mystique.</span></p><p><a href="http://thenewjazzarchive.com/shows/blue-note.html" target="_blank">Listen to this episode.</a> Thu, 07 Aug 2014 12:39:00 +0000 Jeff Haas 20423 at http://interlochenpublicradio.org Blue Note Records The Art of the Solo http://interlochenpublicradio.org/post/art-solo <p></p><p><span style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: normal; orphans: auto; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: auto; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; display: inline !important; float: none; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">Jazz isn't the only form of music that has great solos, but it wouldn't be what it is without 'em. This week on The New Jazz Archive, we go inside the art and craft of one of jazz's most quintessential elements: the solo. We’ll talk with veteran jazz instructor Bill Sears about the challenge of teaching students the art of jazz improvisation, and trace the evolution of the jazz solo from its roots in New Orleans to some of its present day incarnations. And we’ll countdown the all-time most influential solos in jazz history with our favorite jazz historian Lewis Porter, and take a look at jazz’s age-old showcase for show-offs: the jazz cutting contest. That plus some great music from Mel Torme, Oscar Peterson and Christian McBride, this week on The New Jazz Archive.</span></p><p><a href="http://thenewjazzarchive.com/shows/solo.html" target="_blank">Listen to this episode.</a></p><p> Thu, 31 Jul 2014 11:41:00 +0000 Jeff Haas 19966 at http://interlochenpublicradio.org The Art of the Solo Great Jazz Cities: New Orleans http://interlochenpublicradio.org/post/great-jazz-cities-new-orleans <p><span style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: normal; orphans: auto; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: auto; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; display: inline !important; float: none; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">Jazz was born in New Orleans, right? Well, it depends on who you ask. This week on The New Jazz Archive, we get to the bottom of that question&nbsp;with an updated tour of&nbsp;the sites and sounds of New Orleans jazz as we continue our series on America's great jazz cities.&nbsp;We’ll talk with jazz historian Bruce Raeburn about the birth of jazz in New Orleans in the early twentieth century, and get to know the raucous New Orleans parade tradition that is Second Line. And we’ll welcome back our favorite Louis Armstrong historian Ricky Riccardi to the show to talk about Satchmo’s wild and woolly years growing up on the streets of the Crescent City, and explore how Hurricane Katrina has reshaped the New Orleans jazz scene.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></p><p><a href="http://thenewjazzarchive.com/shows/neworleans.html" target="_blank">Listen to this episode.</a></p><p> Tue, 29 Jul 2014 11:23:53 +0000 Jeff Haas 19965 at http://interlochenpublicradio.org Great Jazz Cities: New Orleans John Coltrane http://interlochenpublicradio.org/post/john-coltrane <p><span style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: normal; orphans: auto; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: auto; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; display: inline !important; float: none; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">This week on The New Jazz Archive, it's an update on the life and music of John Coltrane.
