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!

            INTERVIEW

       In Her Own Words
Are you an indy Soul, Jazz, Funk, Blues, or Rock artist who is suffering during this economic depression? Do you have too few gigs, or too few sales (physical or digital)?

Hell you can't even get people to go to your website to sign up for your mailing list or to download a free song. Are you a Soul, Jazz, Funk, Blues, Rock artist on Myspace, Twitter, Facebook, etc and your fans still can't find you?

Are you an older artist and your fans can't find you online? Are you an emerging artist, who wishes that a few people knew who you are?

You have all of this great content (music, video's, pictures, etc) that you have invested a whole lot of time in putting together, and yet it feels like nobody knows that you are even out there. If any of this sounds familiar to you as an artist, we have an alternative that you should consider. And we are going to make this as uncomplicated as possible for you to participate in. It's cheap and it's effective.

--ADVERTISE YOURSELF, YOUR GIGS, YOUR MUSIC, YOUR VIDEO'S, YOUR WEBSITE, YOUR AVAILABILITY, ETC RIGHT HERE ON THE SOUL-PATROL TIMES & THE SOUL-PATROL.COM WEBSITE, WITH TEXT AD'S FOR THE NEXT YEAR.



Here are the terms:

--Contact me via telephone or email
--Make payment online
--You will be given an account
--You post your text listings in our database
--They start appearing next week and for the following 52 weeks
--Record labels, promoters, third parties, etc. are not eligible. Only indy artists.

If you have been thinking about it, now would be the time to act.

Be sure to mention that you saw this on the Pittsburgh Jazz Network.
