Newport Jazz Festival, July 6, 1963

Mr.Chris selected “My Song by Keith Jarrett” as the last song of the program.

My Song is an album which was released on the ECM label in 1978.

George Avakian had also contributed to the success of Keith Jarrett ,because he introduced Keith Jarrett to Manfred Eicher.

About Manfred Eicher,please refer to ECM HP.Go here

In 1968 George Avakian produced ”Life Between the Exit Signs by ”Keith Jarrett”on Vortex label.

Interestingly George Avakian wrote the liner notes of “Life Between the Exit Signs.”

Also in the program Creed Taylor’s work was broadcast.

I guess Creed Taylor is a great jazz producer.

Finally, please listen to “Goodbye” by Keith Jarrett.

DJのクリスさんは番組の最後に「Keith JarrettのMy Song」から「Country」を選曲されました。

My Songは1978年にECMレーベルで発売され今でも人気のあるアルバムです。

George AvakianはKeith JarrettをManfred Eicherに紹介しKeithの成功にも貢献していました。

Manfred EicherについてはECMのHPを参照してください。こちらをクリックして下さい

1968年、George AvakianはVortexレコード (アトランティック系列会社)でKeith Jarrettをリーダとする「Life Between the Exit Signs」を制作しました。

「Life Between the Exit Signs」のライナーノートにおいてGeorge Avakian自らがKeith Jarrettについて紹介した文章は興味深いです。(ラーナーノートを写真として添付しました)

又、私にとって嬉しいことにCreed Taylorの作品も番組で放送されました。

Creed TaylorはGeorge Avakian亡き後、ジャズ界では最高のプロデューサーであると思います。George Avakianとは関係ありませんが私の好きな演奏( CTI録音)を添付しました。

最後にKeith Jarrettによる「Goodbye」をお聞き下さい。

Recently I have interest in Dave Bass who is an American jazz pianist, composer, arranger, and lyricist.

Because his background is very interesting.

He has released two albums: Gone (2010) and NYC Sessions (2015).

This week I want to post Dave Bass and his fellows.

Dave Bass was born June 21, 1950 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Dave Bass began piano lessons at age seven, and shortly after graduating high school he was accepted into Boston’s Berklee College of Music.

Then he took lessons from the legendary Madame Margaret Chaloff who was the mother of Serge Chaloff.

Madame Margaret educated other young, immensely talented jazz artists as Keith Jarrett, Steve Kuhn.

While in Boston, he also studied composition with George Russell.

Also he had toured as Brenda Lee’s pianist.

In 1974 they landed Caribbean, Japan, Singapore, and Malaysia.

Then he relocated to San Francisco.

Here is Dave Bass with Phil Woods & Conrad Herwig

It was the first tour of the country by an American jazz band, and produced the first jazz album ever recorded there, a live concert.
