50年代の白人ビッグバンド(ジャズ喫茶オアシス土曜会回顧)①

September 6,2018

「世界ジャズ人名事典(1976年SJ誌)に「ジャズ喫茶オアシス」の懐かしい広告が掲載されていました。
その広告には毎週「土曜会」が開催されると記載されています。「土曜会」ではベテランジャズファンの解説で、当時ジャズ初心者であった小生には全く知らないレコードが毎週紹介されていました。
久し振りにその当時記録していた「ジャズ喫茶ノート」を読み直し、「土曜会」の雰囲気を振り返ってみようと思います。
今回は「50年代の白人ビッグバンド」を2回に分けてブログを作成致します。

Sadao(渡辺貞夫) lived near the Stable, where Charlie Mariano and Herb Pomeroy started a music school and played jam sessions.

I want to write below about “the Stable”.

In the early 1950s Charlie Mariano suggested to Varty Haroutunian, Herb Pomeroy, and Ray Santisi that they start a school, a workshop, to offer classes and private lessons, and host jam sessions.

They gradually were teaching activity at the Stable, and the musicians kept “Jazz Workshop” as the unofficial club name.

Then the small group grew to a sextet and eventually was playing four nights a week.

Also Pomeroy’s big band started working one night a week in late 1955.

The Stable was an exciting place with enthusiastic listeners.

Everynight Sadao Watanabe went to the Stable ,because his teacher Herb Pomeroy played at the Stable.

On a broadcasting he said Herb’s memory:”When Herb played with Charlie Parker, that night Herb could not sleep with excitement ”.
