UM Frost Jazz Hour, Coral Gables. Don't miss this wonderful concert with arrangements by Dafnis Prieto and Alberto De La Reguera and featuring the just released Big Band album by Grammy nominee Dafnis Prieto who Downbeat magazine just called "One of the top albums of the year". Thursday April 19,8pm -University of Miami Gusman Concert Hall 1314 Miller Drive.
The original album only contained five tracks, but it was expanded to a two-hour-long CD release in 2009. Key song: ‘Diminuendo And Crescendo In Blue’. 21: Cecil Taylor: Unit Structures (Blue Note). A native New Yorker, pianist and poet, the late Cecil Taylor, was pushing musical boundaries several years before Ornette Coleman introduced the concept of free jazz to an unsuspecting world. At 88 years old, Sonny Rollins is one of the last surviving greats of jazz’s golden epoch. Though for health reasons he no longer plays his beloved tenor saxophone, this seminal 1957 album – which gave Rollins his nickname – reminds us of his unparalleled brilliance as an improviser. Rollins receives sterling support from pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Doug Watkins and legendary bebop drummer Max Roach, and together the quartet created an alchemical synergy that results in pure magic.

Robert Glasper is on the vanguard of that, and this album features guest spots by Bilal, Mos Def, and Eryka Badu. Glasper thinks Jazz should evolve to reflect the changing musical landscape, just as Miles Davis incorporated elements of rock in the sixties and Herbie Hancock brought funk grooves to jazz with Head Hunters. Glasper continues this tradition not just by bringing in rappers and soul singers, but by composing in a way that incorporates the music of hip-hop into the very structure of his songs. The Dirty Dozen Brass Band are New Orleans institutions, with compositions recalling the street festival roots of jazz. This album is a song-by-song reinterpretation of Marvin Gaye’s classic 1971 album of the same name, but the Dozen make it their own. The title track features a guest spot by Public Enemy’s Chuck D, who adds heft and fury to the soulful protest of the original. The album never loses this momentum.
Jazz At Massey Hall - The Quintet This album appears reissued under the name "The Greatest Concert Ever". It is an all star lineup of Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Charles Mingus, and Max Roach; all who were prominent in the development of bebop about 15 years beforehand (1953) and thus were all seasoned veterans by the time of the concert. This is the only recording of these five legends playing together and everyone plays brilliantly. This album is a compilation of some of his best recordings from his early years in the 1920's as he set up the template for modern jazz era to come having musician taking turns soloing individually rather than the group jam style of dixieland. The musicians on these recordings are tight, joyous, and even a little silly at times.
The title of this album, when it came out in 1959, was the equivalent of Babe Ruth pointing to the fences or Muhammad Ali proclaiming he was the greatest. It was an album that said, you hear this sound, you hear what I’m laying down, everything is about to change. Ornette Coleman went from playing the sax to the trumpet, and he received scorn from Miles Davis who publicly questioned Coleman’s sanity and technical ability.
Directed by Robert Altman. With Geri Allen, Harry Belafonte, Ron Carter, Cyrus Chestnut. Musicians remember the Kansas City jazz scene, paying homage to the legends of the genre. Director: Robert Altman.
