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!

This month is exactly two years ago

that I met Gary "Brotherman" Branchaud. Not only one of the most

talented bass players on the planet but also one of the coolest cats on

earth! I have had the honor and the blessing of doing many many shows

with Gary and more importantly, we have had some wonderful times

together as friends. One of the best and many gifts that The Lord so

graciously bestowed upon me when I moved to Nashville is…

Mandy, We haven't known eachother very long but, I think for anyone to get rid of a 6 mm kidney stone and a not so nice husband all in one week, is probably a reliefe in many ways! LOL!! I am so happy for you and your family. I think life is going to be a whole lot nicer for you now my friend. Congradulations on both c...hanges!

I am so sorry that I did not get to see your performance at the Preston Sat. night. From what the guys say, it was fantastic as always! Love your new pics. I will see you at 82 this Sat.
Allan

Doc, I couldn't agree more with you about Mandy's new pictures. The only thing I would like to add is "Our Princess is even more beautiful on the inside than she is on the outside." You did a great job at The Preston on Sat. night Mandy as always,
Love you,
Brotherman
