JAZZIZ NEWS | The Complete Bill Evans on Fantasy

On July 17, the Concord Music Group is set to reissue The Complete Fantasy Records of Bill Evans. The nine-CD box set will include 98 studio and live performances, all recorded from 1973 until 1979. That encompasses the pianist’s complete body of work for the Fantasy label, an association which ended about a year before Evans passed away in 1980.

As a bonus, a 1978 interview with Evans is included, conducted by Marian McPartland for her National Public Radio show. Completing the box is a 62-page illustrated booklet with an essay by music critic and biographer Gene Lees and detailed notes on each of the 11 sessions by longtime Evans manager and producer Helen Keane. Previously out of print, the box set will return to store shelves in new, sleek 5” x 5” packaging.

JAZZIZ is celebrating the 60th anniversary of Erroll Garner's album The Complete Concert By the Sea – One of the best-selling jazz albums of all time.

This 3-CD set has been digitally remastered and features 11 never-before released tracks, bonus commentary and interviews with the trio at the concert from 60 years ago. Produced by Guggenheim® Award-winning jazz pianist and Director of Jazz Studies at the University of Pittsburgh Geri Allen and 4-time GRAMMY®Award-winning producer Steve Rosenthal, the legendary concert in Carmel, California was part of Sunset Series by local promoter Jimmy Lyons and laid the groundwork for the beginnings of the renowned Monterey Jazz Festival and will be further celebrated with a rare historic tribute performance at this year’s Monterey Fest featuring Geri Allen, Jason Moran, Christian Sands, Jimmie Cobb, Russell Malone and Darick Oles.

This year’s Monterey Festival will also feature a special Concert By The Sea panel on September 19, 2015 including Geri Allen, Steve Rosenthal, and Monterey Jazz Festival Board Member (who attended the original Concert By The Sea) Jim Costello, moderated by Erroll Garner Jazz Project Director and Ethnomusicologist Jocelyn Arem. Sony Legacy President Adam Block remarks, “Concert By The Sea is a marvelous, mystical album that has been allowed to dangle on the periphery of broader recognition for far too long. Now for the first time, the complete recording and the remarkable story of this masterpiece can be heard and understood in all its glory.

This really is a significant release – critically important to the preservation of one of the truly epic moments in live recorded performances.” Producer Geri Allen remarks, “Erroll Garner personifies the joy of fearless virtuosity and exploration. One of the defining precursors to bebop, piano giant Erroll Garner embodied the very spirit of swing and free improvisation from every vantage point. His playing celebrated the greatest swinging big bands through an innovative and impossible pianism. Singular yet all embracing, Garner blurred the line between great art and popular art, and he was a staunch journeyman of the blues and his Pittsburgh legacy.”

The set is available for pre-order on Amazon here: http://buff.ly/1MNplUg

PASSINGS | With sadness in our hearts, we report that Ornette Coleman, a true jazz trailblazer and innovator, died today at the age of 85. A family member said the cause was cardiac arrest.

Tributes to Coleman and obits about him are appearing all over the Web. Here’s a couple takes, the first from New York Times jazz critic Ben Ratliff, the second from veteran jazz critic Howard Mandel’s NPR blog. RIP, Ornette. Thanks for all the beauty.

JAZZIZ NEWS | Jazz in Woodlawn Cemetery

In the 1920s, an old parlor game inspired a method of incremental collaboration among visual artists and poets, which became known as “exquisite corpse.” On Sunday, June 21, 2015, at 4 p.m., NPR Music, Jazz at Lincoln Center and Make Music New York (MMNY) will apply that same playful tradition to music in a public performance event that links the roots of jazz to its thriving present.

Michael Mwenso, jazz vocalist and curator of the Late Night Sessions program at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, will gather with a group of talented musicians from the New York area for a short performance at the Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx. The space holds special value to the jazz community as the resting place for some of its greats: W.C. Handy, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis and many others. Joining Mwenso for the performance will be trumpeters Alphonso Horne and Bruce Harris, saxophonist Tivon Pennicott, Chris Patishall on melodica, bassist Russell Hall, drummer Evan Sherman, vocalist Vuyo Sotashe and tap dancer Michela Marino Lerman—all regular performers at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola.
