Worcester Hot Club listening sessions

5 posts in this topic

For a few weeks now, Ben Young has been hosting these sessions, which often feature some unknown recordings. Last week, they played two different dates featuring Mal Waldron and either Ted Curson or Charie Rouse. This week, an Archie Shepp/Charli Persip duo provided by Archie himself.

I will share these as I find out about them. I apologize for the inevitable formatting issues. I can forward the email on demand.

WPI’s Jazz History Database kicks off a hot listening session Thursday, June 10 

 

3pm to 5pm   Charli Persip and Archie Shepp (JHDB From the Lab)

5pm to 6:30   Bobby Tucker as Billie Holiday’s accompanist 

6:30 to 8pm   Tony Scott pre-centennial fantasia (Worcester Hot Club)

All are welcome to join any time.  

 

Notice also: Hot Zoom action from Lakeview TONIGHT (6/9)—scroll all the way down for details. 

 

 

The late Melissa Jones, who kicked off much of the Hot Club activity we enjoy today, based her operations in Morristown, New Jersey. Melissa’s HQ for the Unilateral Hot Club of Morristown and launching pad for related initiatives, was also immortalized in the phrase “Goin’ to Morristown” to connote and denote the act of hot listening. 

 

For this Thursday’s extravaganza, we surely will be going to Morristown—following through on a plan that was only incubated in MJ’s last months to spotlight a group of Jazz musicians with Morristown roots. 

 

We first honor drummer Charli Persip (born in Morristown in 1929), a choice percussionist in the hard-bop era for Dizzy Gillespie and other notables… which makes it especially noteworthy that our featured music from the Jazz History Database lab comes from a duo concert with tenor man Archie Shepp, who has kindly shared this music. 

 

The middle set belongs to Billie Holiday.  Some of you sharpshooters know that she was a Morristown resident for a few weeks in 1947. While in town she stayed at the family home of her accompanist Bobby Tucker—who really is our Morristown connection here.  We’ll hear an hour and more of Holiday recordings with Tucker on piano. 

 

Like Persip, clarinetist Tony Scott started his days in Morristown. Scott was a major stylist of the modern clarinet—i.e., the small-band world of Bebop and beyond. Tony Scott centennial of birth is next Thursday but we’ll get a jump on it with an evening’s features of Tony Scott’s 1950s recordings for Brunswick and RCA Victor. 

 

As always, all are welcome—bring a friend and/or tell one.

WPI's Jazz History Database presents

Hot listening Thursday June 24 on Zoom 

 

3pm   Footnotes to recent sessions on George Coleman, Mal Waldron and others (JHDB From the Lab) 

5:30pm Piedmont Blues prelude (Worcester Hot Club with Rick Hendra) 

6pm   Piedmont Blues narrated! (Worcester Hot Club hosted by Rick Hendra) 

8pm   Vocal group music of the Great Migration 

 

https://wpi.zoom.us/j/97495476280   

[more options below] 

All are welcome to join any time.  

 

 

*   

 

Details: 

 

From the Lab (JHDB) 

 

3pm to 5:30    Through the last couple of months we’ve referred forward to a few ‘matters for further study’. We’ll pick up on some of those with hidden music from the Young Men From Memphis session, Mal Waldron on 78s with Ike Quebec, perhaps a nod toward Maestro Ellington and a belated offering in honor of Eric Dolphy’s birthday anniversary. 

 

WORCESTER HOT CLUB (w/ Rick Hendra) 

 

5:30 – 6:00…  A short session of Piedmont Blues to give you time to eat or change gears before the main course for this evening. 

  

6:00 – 8:00… A long session on the country blues music of the Southeastern U.S., comprising the Atlantic arm of the Great Migration. Our story starts in Atlanta and then follows along the Piedmont area of the Carolinas and Virginia, from which the “Piedmont Blues” draws its name. It’s a blues form rooted more in ragtime and the finger-picking styles of Blind Blake and Lonnie Johnson than the more percussive Delta blues stylings we more often hear these days. The Delta blues went to Chicago, got electrified, and became the Chicago blues; the Piedmont blues went to NYC and helped kick off the Folk Revival. It’s a story of 12-string guitars, blind street buskers, and women who got no credit for the players they were. 

  

8:00 – 9:00… A listening session to close out, featuring another music of the Atlantic arm of the Great Migration, but this time from the Tidewater area closer to the coast: black vocal group harmonizing, both gospel and secular.
