様々な文化が混沌と交差しながらも互いに同化せず、鬩ぎ合いながらもそれぞれに影響を与えていく、といったところは、音楽に限らずアメリカ文化の魅力のひとつであります。

今回に限って言えばジャズのメインストリームの1つ、テナーサキソフォンの演奏様式。此方にもそういった鬩ぎ合いが伺えます。

つまりそれは黒人ジャズ奏者と白人ジャズ奏者の演奏様式、美意識の違いにみられるのです。

勿論その枠組にはまらない奏者はたいへん多くおりますが、やはり白人には白人の。黒人には黒人のそれが有るように感じられます。

 

そこで、今回は白人ジャズテナー奏者の系譜(トラディション)を感じていただきたい。

一曲目はC-Melody saxophoneの名人。
Frankie Trumbauer(写真左側はBix Beiderbecke)

trumandbix

Orie Frank ("Frankie" or "Tram") Trumbauer (May 30, 1901 – June 11, 1956) was one of the leading jazz saxophonists of the 1920s and 1930s. He played the C-melody saxophone which, in size, is between an alto and tenor saxophone.

He also played alto saxophone, bassoon, clarinet and several other instruments….

(wikipedia)

Frankie Trumbauer’s accomplishments as a Jazz musician have been overshadowed by the role he played in Bix Beiderbecke’s career.

In his own right he may have played a greater role in the history of Jazz than Bix, as the grandfather of Modern Jazz.

His cool, intellectual style of playing was a major influence on Lester Young, and something of his style can be found in the Cool Jazz movement of the 1950s and 1960s.

Trumbauer was unusual in that he played C-Melody saxophone.

He got his start playing in several dance bands in the Midwest and eventually became musical director of Jean Goldkette’s Orchestra.

He led his own band at the Acadia Ballroom in St. Louis that featured Bix.

For the next few years Trumbauer’s and Beiderbecke’s careers became entwined.

They played together in Jean Goldkette’s Orchestra and made many highly influential recordings together, such as For No Reason at All in C, Singing the Blues and Wringin’ and Twistin’. They both joined Adrian Rollini’s short lived band and then joined the Paul Whiteman Orchestra in 1927….

2人目はBud Freeman

Bud freemaaa

Lawrence "Bud" Freeman (April 13, 1906 – March 15, 1991) was an American jazz musician, bandleader, and composer, known mainly for playing the tenor saxophone, but also able at the clarinet.

He had a smooth and full tenor sax style with a heavy robust swing.

He was one of the most influential and important jazz tenor saxophonists of the Big Band era.

His major recordings were "The Eel", "Tillie’s Downtown Now", "Crazeology", "The Buzzard", and "After Awhile", composed with Benny Goodman.

(wikipedia)

 

When Bud Freeman first matured, his was the only strong alternative approach on the tenor to the harder-toned style of Coleman Hawkins and he was an inspiration for Lester Young.

Freeman, one of the top tenors of the 1930s, was also one of the few saxophonists (along with the slightly later Eddie Miller) to be accepted in the Dixieland world, and his oddly angular but consistently swinging solos were an asset to a countless number of hot sessions.

だいぶベテランになってからの映像ですが、

彼の十八番”You Took Advantage of Me”を演奏しています。さいこう。

 

 

上記の二人はやがてLester Youngという天才に収斂していきます。

彼については第十回”Press in The 30s”をご参照下さい。

 

30年代では異端とされたレスターでしたが、
40年代以降に現れる若い世代のミュージシャンにはすべからく影響与えます。

 

 

 

 

そして時代は進んでLester Youngの影響を特に受けた一人

Allen Eager

Allen Eager (January 10, 1927, New York City – May 13, 2003, Daytona Beach, Florida) was an American jazz tenor saxophonist.

Eager first played jazz as a teenager during World War II in the bands of Bobby Sherwood, Sonny Dunham, Shorty Sherock, Hal McIntyre, Woody Herman, Tommy Dorsey, and Johnny Bothwell.

After the war he became a regular on the scene around 52nd Street in New York; he led his own ensemble there from 1946-48.

In 1948 he played with Tadd Dameron, in 1951 with Gerry Mulligan, in 1952 with Terry Gibbs, and shortly after with Buddy Rich
