THE STRONG CARD

PITTSBURGH JAZZ

Roger Humphries

 

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!

Hi Emmett,

Congratulations on completing two music degrees. That is incredible.

That is terrific too on all that your doing as a music teacher and pro musician.

You were always a superb trombone player and always did well on the business side of music too.

I'm in my 5th year of being Artistic Director at Jazz Workshop, Inc. at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh-Homewood.

It's been an interesting ride as Artistic Director of JWS, and I'm always tryin' to grow in this position and as a pro musician too.

If you ever visit Pittsburgh I'd love to have you jam with the JWS 3 PM Jazz Ensemble at the CLPGH Homewood Lower Level Auditorium.

Peace and Happy New Year!

Well sir, You've been a busy, busy man. I am proud of you because to complete a degree is an awesome feat but to do it with a wife and kids is superhuman. Congratulations to you and keep up the good work.

Cynthia mentioned your name the other day and we were wondering whatever happened to you. How are you? Sorry I left the other "m" off of your name. I just saw it. Hope all is well.

Hi! I am trying to see if this is the Emett Goods who went to school with my son, Nathan James and daughter Cynthia James. Anyway, welcome to the network.

Hi Emmett,

I hope all is well with you!

I really enjoyed playing with you in Guaracha!

That was awesome how you and Josh picked up all those college women when y'all were in high school!

I'm doin' really well now!

I have several music projects goin' on!

Check out my page on The Pittsburgh Jazz Network!
