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!

Nola

Nola cut her teeth in the entertainment industry working in motion picture distribution for nearly a decade with Technicolor Entertainment. She was involved with the management of more than 1500 wide releases both domestic and international, working with more than 30 motion picture studios including Disney, Miramax, Universal, Sony Pictures Releasing, DreamWorks, and Lions Gate Films just to name a few.

Nola easily translated this experience into the music industry and has become an integral part of the QwiLite management team.

QwiLite Entertainment

QwiLite Entertainment is a full service entertainment company based out of New Jersey that will release rock-solid hits guaranteed to get music lovers worldwide hooked to its unique and innovative sounds. The entertainment industry will have no idea what hit them once radio stations, clubs and party-goers start spinning the QwiLite ''flava'' across the nation. Our mission is to cultivate, promote, and manage its individual artists nationwide and internationally. The goal of the company is to be the premier provider of high-tech entertainment products and services. Now, as an independent record label, QwiLite Entertainment is ready to launch its own hot, up-and-coming artists, and put ''QwiLite'' on the map.


The Man Behind the Sound

Quincy "Q" Patrick, QwiLite CEO



Quincy "Q" Patrick is the founder and CEO of QwiLite Entertainment. Over the years "Q" has been writing and producing music for some of the hottest names in the entertainment industry. "Q" was instrumental in the launching of J Records by writing and producing the label's first two gold singles Liquid Dreams for O-Town, and Bizounce for Olivia. His other accolades include composing hits for Grammy Award Winners, Alicia Keys, Babyface, Usher, Luther Vandross, The Temptations, George Benson, Stephanie Mills, multi-platinum artist Joe, Jon B, Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham, and countless others. In addition, he has written for several movie soundtracks and TV shows. In a short amount of time he has planted his name in the rolodexes of several top executives including Clive Davis, CEO of J Records, Kedar Massenburg, CEO of Motown Records, Antonio L.A Reid, CEO of Def Jam records and many others. After the success of working with others in the entertainment industry, and feeling more in tune with artist and consumer needs,"Q" decided it was time to start his own independent record label, and base the company on integrity, respect and an undying love for music. The result was the birth of QwiLite Entertainment, a company that is taking the industry by storm!
