Post a Comment. That this obscure release didn't garner much attention made it possible to re-release an expanded version of the sessions in the following decade, with few noticing. Lees was able to draw reflections of particular precision and depth. For example, at one point in their discussion Lees accused Shaw of being a hopeless romantic, to which Artie replied: All right.
Let's ask ourselves a question about 'romantic. I believe that living is the only crap game in town. Look at the glory, look at the marvel, look at the wonder of life The simple miracle of existence is the thing I just can't get past.
It's a verb, not an adjective or a noun. If jazz doesn't swing, it isn't jazz. Now here, the whole thing gets so comfortable that you forget all about tempo. You suddenly don't think about the music. It seems to take over, coming to life.
Maybe it's life against death we're talking about. On 'Stop and Go Mambo': This was my somewhat sardonic Peta El - Skinkorps - Mr. Clean to the outbreak of mamboism Point is, it's one thing to be serious, quite another to be solemn. My last arpeggio is actually based on Scriabin's so-called mystic chord I come back down on a G major arpeggio. Try it on your bazooka sometime. In the early days, if you played an E major chord based on the third of C majormost Back Bay Shuffle - Artie Shaw - A Legacy would say you were playing "out of the chord.
At that time I had to stay within the frame of what mass audiences understood. So it was a great relief when the boppers arrived. I was quite comfortable with those guys. The first movement baffled the audience totally. The last movement is the toughest thing I have ever played on the clarinet There's one segment of ten or eleven seconds Back Bay Shuffle - Artie Shaw - A Legacy I spent almost three months practicing.
For those wanting a fuller picture of Artie Shaw's genius, these performances are essential. No comments:. Newer Post Older Post Home.
