For all the details about the SAVOY
of Cannonball On Savoy Jazz Record
|Kenny Clarke, veteran
modernist who still out-rhythms out-solos, and
out-guesses all comers in the percussion field is
the pivotal point around which this album revolves . .
. or, perhaps Swings, is a better word. As a great
musician, he is also able to recognize potential
greatness in other musicians. After all, his part
in laying the rhythmic foundation for modern jazz is
no small one! Here, he has brought to Savoy and
Cadena (A&R chief) a group of "new" jazz stars . .
. most performing for the first time on wax here!
Titled after that out
standing N.Y. City club that has been a prime force in
the presentation of the "hard bop" East Coast
(if you like terms)
school of jazz, the Cafe Bohemia in Greenwich Village
has been a jazzman's home away from home!
(Unfortunately, the young
lady gracing our cover does NOT come with the drinks
at the club.) The recording date was extremely
informal. From the rather
large group the men organized their riffs, took turns
and blew. Very few re-takes were made, because the
seemed to "take off just right" and stay that way! Out
of Chaos comes Beauty, they say ... and from the
freedom of organization
and uniformity in tight arranging has come an
outstanding "blowing" session of high merit! The jazz
world owes thanks to Kenny for his "discovery" for
records of the brothers Adderley, who were fresh up
from Florida when recorded here.
Additional thanks too for the opportunity to
record such stellar "youngsters" as Don Byrd, Paul
Chambers, and Jerome Richardson . . . all 3
now rated among the leading lights on today's scene.
