I beg to differ ...

Actually, the other musicians on these recordings are quite up to the task, and Rolf Ericson well demonstrates why he was so highly thought of by many US jazz musicians.

Bird is Great!

Traned

Bird is outstanding on this live European outing from November 22-24, 1950. The only downside is that he is paired with a local band featuring Rolf Ericson(tp), Gosta Theselius(p), Thore Jederby(b), Jack Noren (d) who aren't quite up to the challenge.

Don Cherry: Pied Piper with a Pocket Trumpet

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

Don Cherry began to make his mark with his first recording session, on February 10, 1958, as foil for freebopping alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman on music recorded for Something Else! Their bebop forebears Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker favored rough-sounding unison melodies, a departure from the swing era's smooth blends, but the Coleman-Cherry mix was scrappier still. As soloist, Don took cues from how Ornette's solos didn't track a tune's harmonies too closely. They didn't… more »

Remembering: Von Freeman’s Swing, Bebop, Avant-Garde Thing

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

[Editor's Note: On August 11, jazz saxophonist Von Freeman passed away at 88 years of age. In 2010, Kevin Whitehead wrote a piece about Freeman, which we're featuring here to celebrate his tremendous legacy.] In Chicago, they all but carry him around in a sedan chair: Von Freeman, the tenor saxophonist who's educated umpteen young musicians on the bandstand. In 2002, the city named a stretch of E. 75th Street after him, down by the New… more »

Sheila Jordan’s Place in the Sunshine

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

Our story starts in Pennsylvania coal country, 1962. Jazz singer Sheila Jordan had taken her new friend George Russell to visit the hardscrabble hills where she'd spent her early years. At a local beer garden, Jordan performed an impromptu "You Are My Sunshine" with her grandmother on piano. Russell was an ultramodern composer, and the old song as corny as breakfast flakes - but Sheila's version got to him. Back in New York, he arranged… more »

The Rise and Fall of Lucky Thompson

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

A few years ago, Italian saxophonist Daniele D'Agaro was visiting Chicago, and a critic friend put on a fairly obscure record to stump him. D'Agaro listened for about three seconds, said: "Lucky." Good ears. He knows the distinctive sound of Lucky Thompson after he started hanging out in Paris and playing sumptuous tenor saxophone ballads recalling old idol Don Byas's Parisian sides. On "Solitude" and "We'll Be Together Again," from Lucky in Paris 1959, his tenor's… more »

An Introduction to the Yardbirds

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

There were many British bands that swiveled rock's glorious adolescence, but for my nascent psychedelia and guitar drool, the Yardbirds have long held the most resonance. The wonder of first hearing the extended rave-up of "I'm A Man;" the Gregorian chants of "Still I'm Sad;" the eastern swami of "Over Under Sideways Down;" the clarion clang of the harpsichord in "For Your Love" forever changed for me how I would hear rock music. I sometimes think… more »
