一人目は”The Frog” Ben Webster

Benjamin Francis Webster

(March 27, 1909 – September 20, 1973), a.k.a. "The Brute" or "Frog," was an influential American jazz tenor saxophonist.

Webster, born in Kansas City, Missouri, was considered one of the three most important "swing tenors" along with Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young.

Known affectionately as "The Brute", he had a tough, raspy, and brutal tone on stomps (with his own distinctive growls), yet on ballads he played with warmth and sentiment.

Stylistically he was indebted to alto star Johnny Hodges, who, he said, taught him to play his instrument.

最後の一文が興味深いですね。

”スタイルとしては、ベン・ウェブスターが楽器の奏法を教わったアルト・スターJohnny Hodgesに負うところが大きい。”

Coleman Randolph Hawkins, nicknamed Hawk and sometimes "Bean"

(November 21, 1904 – May 19, 1969), was an American jazz tenor saxophonist.

He was one of the first prominent jazz musicians on his instrument.

As Joachim E. Berendt explained, "there were some tenor players before him, but the instrument was not an acknowledged jazz horn".

While Hawkins is most strongly associated with the swing music and big band era, he had a role in the development of bebop in the 1940s.

Fellow saxophonist Lester Young, who was called "Pres", in a 1959 interview with The Jazz Review, said:

"As far as I’m concerned, I think Coleman Hawkins was the President first, right? As far as myself, I think I’m the second one."

Miles Davis once said: "When I heard Hawk, I learned to play ballads."
