PITTSBURGH JAZZ

 

From Blakey to Brown, Como to Costa, Eckstine to Eldridge, Galbraith to Garner, Harris to Hines, Horne to Hyman, Jamal to Jefferson, Kelly to Klook; Mancini to Marmarosa, May to Mitchell, Negri to Nestico, Parlan to Ponder, Reed to Ruther, Strayhorn to Sullivan, Turk to Turrentine, Wade to Williams… the forthcoming publication Treasury of Pittsburgh Jazz Connections by Dr. Nelson Harrison and Dr. Ralph Proctor, Jr. will document the legacy of one of the world’s greatest jazz capitals.

 

Do you want to know who Dizzy Gillespie  idolized? Did you ever wonder who inspired Kenny Clarke and Art Blakey? Who was the pianist that mentored Monk, Bud Powell, Tad Dameron, Elmo Hope, Sarah Vaughan and Mel Torme? Who was Art Tatum’s idol and Nat Cole’s mentor? What musical quartet pioneered the concept adopted later by the Modern Jazz Quartet? Were you ever curious to know who taught saxophone to Stanley Turrentine or who taught piano to Ahmad Jamal? What community music school trained Robert McFerrin, Sr. for his history-making debut with the Metropolitan Opera? What virtually unknown pianist was a significant influence on young John Coltrane, Shirley Scott, McCoy Tyner, Bobby Timmons and Ray Bryant when he moved to Philadelphia from Pittsburgh in the 1940s?  Would you be surprised to know that Erroll Garner attended classes at the Julliard School of Music in New York and was at the top of his class in writing and arranging proficiency?

 

Some answers  can be gleaned from the postings on the Pittsburgh Jazz Network.

 

For almost 100 years the Pittsburgh region has been a metacenter of jazz originality that is second to no other in the history of jazz.  One of the best kept secrets in jazz folklore, the Pittsburgh Jazz Legacy has heretofore remained mythical.  We have dubbed it “the greatest story never told” since it has not been represented in writing before now in such a way as to be accessible to anyone seeking to know more about it.  When it was happening, little did we know how priceless the memories would become when the times were gone.

 

Today jazz is still king in Pittsburgh, with events, performances and activities happening all the time. The Pittsburgh Jazz Network is dedicated to celebrating and showcasing the places, artists and fans that carry on the legacy of Pittsburgh's jazz heritage.

 

WELCOME!

About Me:
I am an independent scholar and former professional jazz guitarist living in the Pittsburgh area for almost 7 years. I am currently trying to get back in shape musically, taking lessons from Jimmy Ponder on the blues and its abstract truth, and Eric Suseoff on guitar technique and contemporary chord-scale keyboard cognition, to retrieve and hopefully surpass where I was musically in the late 1970's.
Here are some of my interests:
Research on Science, Technology and Culture: Complexity Theory in physics and cognitive science, Visual Art, Music, Literature, Philosophy and Politics: Poincare and Bergson, Duchamp and the emergence of emergence; Duchamp and Dada; the History of Jazz; Jazz and cognition; Chess and Go; the scientific epistemological foundations of fascism; Thomas Pynchon; Ezra Pound, Samuel Beckett, Sam Shepard; Kiki Smith, Arakawa and Gins, Pilobolus, The Pulsa Group, Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari; Henri Atlan & Ilya Prigogine, Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela, Jean Petitot, and Edwin Hutchins. Here is a NSF Conference website with samples of my published work:
http://bart.tcc.virginia.edu/tradzoneworkshop/papers.htm
Here is a video-taped lecture on the metaphor of jazz in cognitive and computer science (and the relationship between embodied and distributed cognition) from the same conference:
http://www.sts.virginia.edu/small/ZebuErisCthrag/rosenberg.mov
I have had as well a sideline in Hypermedia, HCI and Interaction-Design.
You can see a list of publications, including articles translated into Spanish and Portuguese, at:
http://www.interaction-design.org/references/authors/martin_e__rose...
You can listen to an audio file of a lecture on the mathematics of phase space, contemporary cognitive science, and the avant-garde architecture of Arakawa and Gins, that I gave for the Slought Foundation and the University of Pennsylvania, April 5, 2008:
http://slought.org/content/11366/ .

With Jondi Keane of Griffith University, Brisbane AU, I co-directed AG3-Online: The Third International Arakawa and Gins: Architecture and Philosophy Conference, which ran from March 12-26, 2010 with concluding celebrations at Barnard College April 30, and at
The Solomon Guggenheim Museum, May 1, where Martin gave the inaugural keynote.
See the conference website:
http://ag3.griffith.edu.au

Martin has given a number of invited lectures and conference plenaries internationally, including: Universidade de Sao Paolo (1999 and 2000); University of Bergen, Norway (1998); Trent University Ontario CA, (2005); University of Cologne, Germany (2009); University of Warwick, GB (1994); Free University of Brussels--Flemish (2000); The Sense Lab, Concordia University, Montreal (2010); as well as in the US, at Harvard University (1999); Texas Tech University (2X) (1998 and 2001); Center for Nano-Technology and Society and the NSF, ASU (2006); Arlington Arts Center DC (2010); Slought Foundation, U. Pennsylvania (2008); and many other places. You can discover more on my scholarship at: http://independent.academia.edu/martinerosenberg

Thank you, it is my pleasure - indeed. I'm off on a journey - not knowing where it will lead me, you know?

All I know is I love performing it's in my soul. (smile).

My motto for today is: Claim it, believe it and act on it.

Have a blessed day.
