Alan Goldsher: Hard Bop Academy - The Sidemen of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers

Gebundene Ausgabe - 216 Seiten - Hal Leonard - 2002 - Englisch

Jazz legend ART BLAKEY was not only a distinguished, inventive, powerful drummer, but along with Duke Ellington and Miles Davis, he was one of jazz's foremost talent scouts. The instrumenta-lists who flowed in and out of Blakey's ever-evolving collective, the Jazz Messengers, during their 36-year run were among the most important artists not lust of their eras, but of any era.

Part oral history, part loving homage, bassist/novelist/journalist Alan Goldsher's Hard Bop Academy: The Sidemen of Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers is an affectionate look at some of the brilliant instrumentalists who helped make the Jazz Messengers one of the most enduring, most popular, most reliable, most vital small bands in modern jazz history. Featuring firsthand interviews with 24 former Jazz Messengers including Horace Silver, Freddie Hubbard, Cedar Walton, and Wynton Marsalis—as well as introductions by Branford Marsalis, Terence Blanchard, Javon Jackson, and Bobby Watson—

Hard Bop Academy is a literary jam session saluting a group that always had and always will deliver the hard bop message.

"Alan Goldsher's literary contribution to the jazz legacy is quite a unique one. For those of you who love the history of jazz from an insider's point of view, Hard Bop Academy is a must-read."
—tenor saxophonist Branford Marsalis

"It's not just that Alan Goldsher has garnered such wonderfully evocative commentary about the Messengers from the musicians; it's that his own commentary contains such colorful enthusiasm. He approaches the subject with a zeal that the Messengers have inspired for decades, yet his ultra-modern voice should make the band hip for a whole new generation." —Neil Tesser, author of The Playboy Guide to Jazz

"Hard Bop Academy is a vital book, and Alan Goldsher was definitely the dude to write it—if only because he was there and was moved by what he saw and what he heard from Art Blakey."
—alto saxophonist Bobby Watson

"Alan Goldsher's huge respect and admiration for jazz—and specifically for the topic of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers—is very apparent. There is no question that Hard Bop Academy reveals a tremendous range of emotions and viewpoints from the musicians who helped create the Harvard University of jazz." —tenor saxophonist Javon Jackson
