特集『モダンジャズの巨人をあらためて聴いてみよう(ただし自分流選曲)』

あらためて「モダン・ジャズ・ジャイアンツ」を取り上げた特集を企画してみました。

Richard Stoltzman has made an effort to play new music for the clarinet.

Toru Takemitsu had composed the “Fantazuma / Cantos” for Stoltzman.

Toru Takemitsu (武満 徹) was a Japanese composer and writer on aesthetics and music theory.

I found an interesting clip.

Takemitsu was acclaiming about Stoltzman in the first part of the video(日本語です).

In addition Stolzman and Takemistu had a conversation at the end of the portion of the video.

I think their conversation is invaluable.

Also Richard Stoltzman has performed with pop artists like Chick Corea, Steve Gadd, Eddie Gomez, Mel Tormé and Judy Collins.

Stoltzman is noted for his double lip embouchure, wide vibrato, and ability to mimic the sound of a human voice on the clarinet.

下記解説はSony Music Shopから引用しました。
彼の奏法は、ダブル・リップ奏法と呼ばれるやや特殊なもので、上の唇で歯を巻いて楽器を構え、歯でくわえて固定しないため柔らかく構えることから、より繊細な表現が可能となっています。高音域での極弱音や、クロスオーバー音楽のアルバムなどでは、あたかも人間の声のようなビブラートや音色を持つ、数少ないクラリネット奏者です。

Here is Toru Takemitsu’s work “Fantasma/Cantos”.

Here is Richard Stoltzman advertise his first concert in New York City, on January 14, 2012.

In 1969 Frank Zappa composed the music for Jean-Luc’s solo album King Kong.

Frank Zappa wanted him to join their tour.

So he emigrated with his wife and two young daughters to the United States.

Roy Haynes also recorded at the time with pianist Bud Powell.

He said about Bud Powell:

”Bud Powell could outfox anyone, another player
The drummer was going to make him sound good.
It was beautiful playing behind him. Cause he had so much rhythm. All you had to do is accompany him.”

From 1953 to 1958 he toured with singer Sarah Vaughan and also recorded with her.

He said about Sarah Vaughan:

”Usually I knew where she was going. But if she was scatting, naturally, that’s ad-libbing, and I’d have to figure it out.

She started introducing us on this tune she’d scat,and say, “Roy…dat-dat-dat…Haynes.”

Sarah Vaughan was the Charlie Parker of the vocalists during the 1950s. It was great.”

After that he played a plethora of extended gigs with Thelonious Monk (1959-60), recorded eight albums with Eric Dolphy (1960-61).

He had collaborations with Chick Corea since 1968.

He continues to blow people away when they hear his performance on the 1968 classic trio album by Chick Corea, ‘Now He Sing Now He Sobs’.
