A "GIANTS OF JAZZ" CONCERT



A

A RETROSPECTIVE AND RE-CREATION OF ONE OF THE BEST-SELLING JAZZ ALBUMS IN HISTORY, AND ONE OF THE FIRST JAZZ ALBUMS TO BE A "GOLD RECORD". RELEASED IN 1973, THIS FUNK-JAZZ-ROCK-SOUL-INFLUENCED ALBUM ALLOWED PIANO VIRTUOSO, HERBIE HANCOCK, TO DEFINE A NEW MUSICAL DIRECTION FOR HIMSELF AND, IN SO DOING, PROPELLED THE WORLD OF JAZZ INTO AN EXCITING AND IRRESISTIBLE FUTURE.

DRAWING UPON HIS HARD-BOP PAST - "WATERMELON MAN" -
AND COMPOSING NEW MATERIAL - THE INFECTIOUS FUNK ROMP, "CHAMELEON" - HANCOCK LEGITIMIZED AND POPULARIZED JAZZ-ROCK FUSION IN A MANNER THAT FEW OF HIS CONTEMPORARIES WERE ABLE TO ACHIEVE. "CHAMELEON" AND
"VEIN MELTER" WERE EVEN RELEASED ON A "45" RPM SINGLE, SUCH WAS THE
ATTRACTIVENESS OF THIS VERY ACCESSIBLE GENRE OF JAZZ. THE HYPNOTIC RHYTHMS AND INTRIGUING SOLOS ON "HEAD HUNTERS" WERE MOST CERTAINLY INSPIRATION AND ENCOURAGEMENT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIP-HOP MUSIC
A DECADE LATER. SELECTIONS FROM HANCOCK'S LATER RECORDINGS, INCLUDING "THRUST", WILL ALSO BE INCLUDED IN THE CONCERT.

A "GIANTS OF THE BLUES" CONCERT



COLUMBIA/LEGACY'S 2002 RELEASE, THE BEST OF JOHNNY WINTER, CONCENTRATES SOLELY ON THE GUITARIST'S EARLY RECORDINGS FOR COLUMBIA, WHICH ARE OFTEN (AND DESERVEDLY) CONSIDERED HIS BEST WORK. NEARLY ALL OF THE 16 SELECTIONS HERE WERE RECORDED BETWEEN 1969 AND 1971 --- THERE'S A STRAY CUT FROM 1973, PLUS TWO CUTS FROM 1979, DATING FROM HIS TIME ON BLUE SKY --- AND ALL OF THEM SHOWCASE WINTER AT HIS BEST, NOT JUST AS A FIERY BLUES-ROCK GUITARIST, BUT AS A BAND-LEADER. WHILE THERE ARE A FEW ITEMS THAT MAY BE RELATIVELY RARE HERE, THERE IS NO UNRELEASED MATERIAL, JUST SELECTIONS FROM WINTER AT HIS PRIME, AND THIS COLLECTION DOES
A VERY GOOD JOB OF SUMMARIZING THAT PEAK
SUCCINCTLY AND ENJOYABLY.

PERFORMED BY

WILD T LinkFeaturing

THE FESTIVAL FINALE CONCERT

A "GREAT MOMENTS IN THE BLUES" CONCERT



THE LAST TRULY INDISPENSABLE DISC OF THE GREAT GUITAR HERO'S CAREER, AND PERHAPS THE MOST INNATELY
SATISFYING OF ALL, THESE RECORDINGS FROM 1955 TO 1957 BOAST MAGNIFICENT PRESENCE, WITH T-BONE WALKER'S AXE SO CRISP AND CLEAR IT SEEMS AS THOUGH HE'S SITTING
RIGHT NEXT TO YOU AS HE DELIVERS A LUXURIOUS
REMAKE OF "CALL IT STORMY MONDAY."

AARON THIBEAUX ('T-BONE') WALKER WAS ONE OF THE
MAJOR EARLY EXPONENTS OF THE ELECTRIC GUITAR. THIS
COLLECTION CONCENTRATES ON THE PERIOD OF 1940 TO 1947 AND SO ILLUSTRATES WELL THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIS STYLE. HIS STUNNING GUITAR WORK IS REVEALED TOGETHER WITH HIS EXCELLENT VOCALS AND INVENTIVE LYRICS, INCLUDING THE CLASSIC "CALL IT STORMY MONDAY". AS THE FIRST BLUESMAN TO RECORD USING AN ELECTRIC GUITAR, WALKER PREMIERED THE LICKS ON WHICH CHUCK BERRY WAS TO BUILD HIS CAREER, AS CAN BE HEARD ON MANY OF THE TRACKS ASSEMBLED HERE, EVEN AS EARLY AS THE 1942 "MEAN OLD WORLD". OTHER ARTISTS, INCLUDING FELLOW TEXANS ALBERT COLLINS AND JOHNNY COPELAND, AS WELL AS B.B. KING, LEARNED
AN AWFUL LOT FROM WALKER'S GUITAR PLAYING;
HE WAS THE MAJOR INFLUENCE OF THE PERIOD.
