Johnny Griffin - Congregation [1957]

"I like to play fast. I get excited, and I have to sort of control myself, restrain myself. But when the rhythm section gets cooking, I want to explode."

Johnny Griffin

A few years ago a new recording came out that showcased five young tenor saxophonists. The album's title, inspired, no doubt, by a desire to cash in on the "young lions" craze so much in vogue, anointed its youthful stars as "young tough tenors."

Well, there used to be a time when it meant something to be called a "tough tenor." It wasn't just a title your record label bestowed upon you. You had to serve your time on the frontlines of jazz, locking horns nightly with cats called Illinois, Sonny, Jug, Dexter, Wardell, Lockjaw. And when you finally earned the rank, the other tough tenors-not record producers or agents or publicists or critics-let you know.

Johnny Griffin won his "tough tenor" stripes in crack regiments like the Lionel Hampton big band, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, and the Thelonious Monk quartet. In the early 1960s he co-led a quintet alongside that underrated monster of the tenor saxophone, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis. Then, in 1963, he emigrated to Europe and immediately became a fixture on the continent's thriving jazz scene. Griffin did not return to the States until 1978, when he was coaxed back for a guest appearance at fellow emigre Dexter Gordon's Carnegie Hall triumph.

Now, every April, the 65-year old Chicago Southsider makes an annual trip to the US, a highlight of which is a week-long birthday gig (April 24) at Chicago's Jazz Showcase, either preceded or followed by a week in New York. When he's not on tour, Griff enjoys his idyllic life in the French countryside, two hundred fifty miles outside of Paris. "It takes me almost an hour to drive to the nearest train station," he laughs.

CD universe:
The Rudy Van Gelder-helmed reissue of 1957's THE CONGREGATION improves on what is already a classic Johnny Griffin date. Backed by Paul Chambers on bass, Kenny Dennis on drums, and Sonny Clark on piano, Griffin demonstrates his usual dazzling dexterity on the tenor sax. The mode is straightforward bop, with a balance of uptempo numbers and ballads, and plenty of stretching out all around. This set comes highly recommended--especially given the improved sound of the reissue--to fans of the style.

All About Jazz:
On this 1957 session, the “world’s fastest tenor” sets aside his gun-slinging ways in favor of comparatively restrained, straightforward preaching, consisting of some basic, rather predictable harmonic-rhythmic rhetoric and, of course, that distinctive sound. Griffin’s ample and slow Leslie- like vibrato is somewhat reminiscent of Dexter Gordon’s but without the long tall one’s frequently sardonic send-up of swing-era clichés, replacing them with tension-filled, dramatic alternatives derived from a chord's extended harmonies. In brief, the program on The Congregation is curiously unengaging: it would almost seem the “Little Giant” dispatched more souls with his six-shooters than his sermonizing.

A sense of over-familiarity sets in immediately with the introductory title song, a thinly disguised variation on Horace Silver's “The Preacher.” The remaining five tunes, including the ballad “I’m Glad There Is You,” all gravitate toward the same groove—a medium-up tempo in the key of concert F (a recurrent top tone in the tenor solos as well). And as solid, even sparkling, as they are, Paul Chambers’ bass solos on each of the tunes—at least three of them bowed—tend to underscore the repetitive, formulaic nature of the proceedings.

The virtuosity and rapid-fire articulations of the gifted tenor man begin to emerge on John Jenkins’ “Latin Quarter” (somewhat of a misnomer) with a couple of heated, double-timed choruses and an arresting cadenza, but the momentary spark is extinguished until Jule Styne’s always welcome “It’s You Or No One” which, though again in F, is at least taken at a slightly brighter tempo. Pianist Sonny Clark and Chambers are a flawless team as usual, and the somewhat unusual employment of drummer Kenny Dennis does nothing to obstruct their customary flow. The bonus track, “I Remember You” (in F, naturally), is another nice standard but does little for the program. Its inclusion, in fact, begs comparison with Cannonball Adderley’s superb Cannonball Takes Charge (Riverside, 1959), a session that employs the same instrumentation and a similar program yet maintains a hard, gemlike flame throughout.

Track List of Johnny Griffin - Congregation:

1. The Congregation
2. Latin Quarter
3. I'm Glad There Is You
4. Main Spring
5. It's You Or No One
6. I Remember You (Bonus Track)

Grant Green - Grant's First Stand

Grant Green (June 6, 1935 – January 31, 1979; some sources erroneously give the birth year as 1931) was a jazz guitarist and composer.

Recording prolifically and almost exclusively for Blue Note Records (as both leader and sideman) Green performed well in hard bop, soul jazz, bebop and latin-tinged settings throughout his career. Critics Michael Erlewine and Ron Wynn write, "A severely underrated player during his lifetime, Grant Green is one of the great unsung heroes of jazz guitar ... Green's playing is immediately recognizable -- perhaps more than any other guitarist."

Track List of Grant Green: Grant's First Stand:

01. Miss Ann's Tempo (5:38)
02. Lullaby of the Leaves (7:41)
03. Blues for Wilarene (7:08)
04. Baby's Minor Lope (7:19)
05. 'Taint Nobody's Business If I Do (4:26)
06. A Wee Bit O' Green (7:49)

Charlie Haden Quartet West - In Angel City [1988]


The second recording by Charlie Haden's Quartet West is similar to the music that the group (bassist Haden, tenor saxophonist Ernie Watts, pianist Alan Broadbent and drummer Larance Marable) would play for the next decade. Among the highlights of this well-rounded set (one of the band's most definitive releases) is "First Song" (Haden's most memorable composition), Miles Davis' "Blue In Green," and a lengthy exploration of Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman." An excellent showcase for Haden in a straight-ahead setting and for Watts, whose passionate sound perfectly fits the band. Highly recommended.

Amazon reviewer:
Recorded mid-1988, this is the second Quartet West album. The late Billy Higgins had departed, to be replaced by Larance Marable on every track bar one. Unlike its successors, 'Haunted Heart' and 'Always Say Goodbye', there is no splicing here with vintage recordings of classic artists such as Jo Stafford or Coleman Hawkins. No introductory fanfares either. But Haden's fixation with the LA of the past is clear. There's a lengthy Ray Chandler passage on the sleevenotes. The album cover features a photo of Haden back in the late 1950s, when the Ornette Coleman Quartet were appearing at the Club Hillcrest.

On the debut album, the band opened with a Metheny standard, 'Hermitage'. For this album, Metheny specially writes a piece entitled 'The Red Wind'. It is by far the most joyful track on the album -- Alan Broadbent seems almost surprised at having to play upbeat piano licks that Metheny would normally expect Lyle Mays to perform. The CD includes an extra couple of reasonable tracks not on the LP. If you had bought the LP, you wouldn't have got any Alan Broadbent compositions at all. Broadbent has really flourished as both composer and arranger on subsequent albums; here you only get an inkling of his potential.

Track list of Charlie Haden Quartet West - In Angel City :

1. Sunday at the Hillcrest 6:21
2. First Song (For Ruth) 6:57
3. The Red Wind 4:55
4. Blue in Green 7:16
5. Alpha 6:27
6. Live Your Dreams 6:32
7. Child's Play 3:06
8. Fortune's Fame 8:09
9. Tantantella 3:15
10. Lonely Woman 13:41

Jean - Marc Zelwer | Discography

Jean-Marc ZELWER

Jean-Marc Zelwer has always been fascinated by the numerous colors offered by many instruments from all over the world. "Discovering a new instrument is like discovering a different culture even if you end up making it yourself" and so Jean-Marc creates a singular universe thanks to the diversity. After two creations for choreographer Karine Saporta (Le Bal dans un couloir de fer in 1987 and La Fiancée aux yeux de bois in 1988). Jean-Marc started collaborating with Francesca Lattuada in 1989 performing the entire catalogue of the Festina Lente Company. He has also composed original soundtracks and circus music.

Meanwhile, he has run The Kumpania Zelwer, with 8 musicians (he plays various instruments himself while Francesca is the body and the voice of "their fancy" imaginary gypsie orchestra) re-introducing weird objects and unusual instruments(water-drums, magic lantern). These shows aim to tickle both senses of hearing and vision ("Les Montreurs d`ours sont partis" in 1991 and "Daissa, le salon des mendiants" in1998).

Jean-Marc Zelwer won the Romain Rolland prize and he then travelled to India where he has learned santour with maestro R.W. Wishweshwaran. He has focused on the link between music and traditions in Japan during his stay at the Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto. His creative works vary from more or less structured architectures to refined or tough frames but it always reflects the palette of human emotions..

Francesca Lattuada: vocals and dance
Set up in France for more than 15 years, this italian choregrapher has created more than 10 shows with her company Festina Lente, in collaboration with Jean-Marc Zelwer. These creations perfectly blend music, singing and costumes as phantasmagoric as her imagination. Her constant ambition of reaching the ideal balance between contemporary esthetism and the need of rituals and popular transmission of a rich common background never come without joy. In 12/00, Francesca Lattuada created "La Tribu iOta" for the Circus National Center 12th issue, she also directed "Paraboles for Church " by Benjamin Britten at the Opera du Rhin, in November 99. She was born in Italy where she first sang before flying to Southern India. There she discovered karnatic singing, and then harmony singing and other folk songs and traditions. Determined and fragile, corporal and entirely dedicated to movement, Francesca Lattuada is verything but predictable.
