第五トラディショナルno.13 Jazz in Chicago

トラディショナルの宴はいよいよもって高まります。

天井を知らないテンション、ダニー・スミス

声が酒やけ、渡邊恭一。

今回も阿部寛さん、加藤亜依さんにご参加いただいております。

 

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 

今回は1920年代の”シカゴ派”から音源を幾つか紹介致します。

 

一口にシカゴ派と言っても古くは建築界辺りから始まり、

音楽でもブルース、ハウスミュージック(語源は”ウェアハウス”)

最近ではシカゴ音響楽派といろいろありますが、

20年代のシカゴ派、と言ったらジャズです。

 

このシカゴ派からはのちのビッグスター、

Benny Goodman, Tommy & Jimmie Dorsey, Glenn Miller,

Gene Krupaらが輩出されます。

 

また同時に、

いま日本でデキシーランドと呼ばれるサウンドの礎ともなっているのです。

一人目はBix Beiderbecke

bix beiderbecke

Leon Bismark "Bix" Beiderbecke

(March 10, 1903 – August 6, 1931) was an American jazz cornetist, jazz pianist, and composer.

With Louis Armstrong, Beiderbecke was one of the most influential jazz soloists of the 1920s.

His turns on "Singin’ the Blues" (1927) and "I’m Coming, Virginia" (1927), in particular, demonstrated an unusual purity of tone and a gift for improvisation…

(wikipedia)

 

Bix Beiderbecke was one of the great jazz musicians of the 1920’s; he was also a child of the Jazz Age who drank himself to an early grave with illegal Prohibition liquor.

His hard drinking and beautiful tone on the cornet made him a legend among musicians during his life.

The legend of Bix grew even larger after he died. Bix never learned to read music very well, but he had an amazing ear even as a child.

Adrian Rollini was a child prodigy on piano; at age four he played a recital at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel (34th sreet and 5th Avenue) in New York.
