Melba Liston(5)

June 17.2017

At the beginning of the 1960s Melba Liston collaborated with pianist Randy Weston.

Their collaborations produced several notable albums including the critically acclaimed albums Uhuru Afrika (1960) and Highlife (1963).

Randy Weston said about Melba;”Melba is incredible; she hears what I do and then expands it.She will create a melody that sounds like I created it. She’s just a great, great arranger.”

Acutually she was a pioneer in the explicit melding of contemporary African rhythms and intonations with American jazz.

In the 1960s she took on work for other jazz artists such as Milt Jackson and Johnny Griffin.

During the 1970’s, she spent six years in Jamaica on a music education appointment at the University of Jamaica and served as director of popular music studies at the Jamaica Institute of Music.

Unfortunately, her health declined with the first of several strokes in 1986.

Melba Liston passed away in 1999.

In later years, Melba spoke candidly about the extreme difficulties of being a female jazz musician during this era.

However, despite consistent abuse by male musicians, Melba found strength and motivation in her music.

1960年代初頭、Melba ListonはRandy Westonと音楽活動を開始しました。
二人の協働によって下記2枚を含み注目すべきアルバムを発表しました。
Uhuru Afrika(1960), Highlife(1963)
彼らは「アフリカのリズムとイントネーション」をジャズに融合させた先駆者となりました。
又、Milt Jackson や Johnny Griffinのアルバムに編曲を提供し、録音現場ではオーケストラの指揮も手掛けました。
1970年代、ジャマイカ大学で6年間音楽教育に携わりジャマイカ音楽院の音楽監督も務めました。
1986年、彼女に最初の心臓発作が不幸にも起きました。
そしてMelba Listonは1999年に亡くなりました。
晩年、Melbaは女性ジャズミュージシャン特有の困難さについて率直に語りました。
男性ミュージシャンからの罵詈雑言にも挫けず自分の音楽を堂々と演奏することを自らの生き方と決めたそうです。

The NDR Jazz Workshop was held as jazz event from 1958.

In the 1950s Hans Koller had worked in the SWF Baden-Baden Radio Orchestra.

Then he became the musical director of Hamburg’s NDR Jazz Workshop.

Despite in those days Europe had been in the Cold War,NDR invited many jazz musicians from United States and Communist countries and others each year.

NDR left many grandiose sound tracks.

More than 2000 concerts and studio recordings from the last 60 years are resting well protected in our Jazz archive.

Some of these have been released since 1987.
