    DescriptionThelonious Monk: Straight No Chaser. Filmmaker Bruce Ricker couldn't believe his luck. Michael and Christian Blackwood's extensive 1968 footage of the groundbreaking modern jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk, including the only footage of the very private Monk off stage, was in excellent condition. The reels were, in Ricker's words, "just sitting there like the Dead Sea Scrolls of jazz." Ricker, as co-producer, joins director and fellow producer Charlotte Zwerin (Gimme Shelter), executive producer Clint Eastwood and others to bring these scrolls to astonishing life. Their Thelonious Monk: Straight No Chaser combines the Blackwood's rare footage of Monk in studio on tour and behind the scenes with new interviews, archival photos and more to create a landmark aural and visual treat.Tunes in order of appearance: Evidence; Rhythm-a-ning; On the Bean; Round Midnight; Well, You Needn't; Bright Mississippi; Blue Monk; Trinkle, Tinkle; Rhythm-a-ning; Ugly Beauty; Ask Me Now; Just a Gigolo; Crepuscule with Nellie; I Should Care; We See; Osaka T.; Evidence; Epistrophy, Don't Blame Me; Ruby, My Dear; I Mean You; Lulu's Back in Town; Off Minor; Pannonica; Boo Boo's Birthday; Misterioso; Monk's Mood; Sweetheart of All My Dreams; Round Midnight.

    Editorial Review

    Amazon.com essential videoPart concert documentary, part pop-cultural time capsule, Bert Stern's Jazz on a Summer's Day chronicles the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival with an approach as deceptively relaxed, even impulsive, as the music itself. Still photographer Stern sidesteps more formal documentary conventions such as narrative voiceovers to wander purposefully from festival stage to boarding-house jam sessions, taking in the parallel color and motion of the America's Cup preparations when he isn't capturing rich color footage of the performances and the celebratory mood of the concertgoers. In the process, he documents American jazz at a notably golden moment in its development--diverse, adventurous, and still broadly popular, this was jazz not yet under the shadow of rock and youth culture, played by an integrated artistic community a few short years away from social and political turmoil that would boil divisively to the surface during the '60s. To say Stern was rolling film in a jazz Camelot is overstatement, but only slightly so.

    Stern's circular approach and wonderful eye achieve a breezy languor at the expense of more comprehensive coverage of the festival's bumper crop of strong jazz, blues, and gospel musicians. Perhaps inevitably, the camera lingers on Louis Armstrong, Anita O'Day, Mahalia Jackson, Dinah Washington, Thelonious Monk, Gerry Mulligan, and George Shearing. Avid fans of later styles may be frustrated by the fleeting glimpses of other musicians such as Eric Dolphy and Art Farmer, or the honor roll of classic jazz stylists whose Newport sets weren't included in the film, but such omissions seem forgivable, if not necessary, to Stern's serendipitous design. --Sam Sutherland ...

    Editorial Review

    DescriptionMonterey Jazz Festival - Place Miles first on the bill. He wants those "fresh ears." And how about the time Jon Hendricks stepped on stage still jotting down the composition he was to perform? "Aren't you ready" musical director John Lewis asked. "Never" Hendricks laughed. Yet the result was perfection in progress: the legendary debut of Evolution of the Blues. And what about Ella, Louis, Dizzy, Sarah, Dave, Monk, Clark Terry, even Lady Day? They're also part of the lore that one weekend every year makes Monterey synonymous with jazz. Hosted by contemporary favorites Joshua Redman and Patrice Rushen and featuring archival performance footage plus on-camera commentary from notables (including lifetime jazz buff Clint Eastwood), this compendium of the Monterey Jazz Festival sings, swings and syncopates with joy. Like eggs and bacon and romance and roses, some things just go together. Things like Monterey and jazz, going together now for 40 magical, musical years. Year: 1998 Director: William Harper - Starring: Joshua Redman, Patrice Rushen

    When Charlie Christian began playing melodic single-string solos on an amplified guitar, he caused a guitar revolution, moving the instrument out of the background on to center stage. This poignant documentary is an in-depth account of an extraordinary guitarist, whose innovations outlasted his all-too-brief career and continue to reverberate in the sound of jazz guitar today. ...

    Editorial Review

    The Evolution of Solo Jazz Piano is a study of solo piano styles developed by 24 of the most influential solo pianists from 1900 to the present. In order to clearly illustrate the specific contributions of the various pianists, Bill Dobbins composed a theme based on the well known standard All Of Me. By applying the stylistic approaches of the different pianists to the same theme, one becomes aware of the subtle yet evocative elements of each individual style.Common elements between Waller, Ellington, Tatum, Monk and Rowles, Tatum, Hines and Wilson, Smith and Ellington, Corea and Beirach etc., should make it clear that musical individuality is largely the result of the subconscious emphasis of some musical elements over others, rather than the self-conscious cultivation of originality for its own sake. We sincerely hope that this DVD may serve as a stimulus toward the further study of the solo jazz piano tradition in particular and for creative music in general.Duration: 101 minutesPart 1: Traditional Styles Scott Joplin - Jelly Roll Morton - James P. Johnson - Willie "The Lion" Smith - Earl "Fatha" Hines - Thomas "Fats" Waller - Teddy Wilson - Duke Ellington - Art Tatum - Meade Lux Lewis - Pete Johnson - Jimmy YanceyPart 2: Modern Styles Thelonious Monk - Bud Powell - Oscar Peterson - Erroll Garner - Lennie Tristano - Bill Evans - Clare Fischer - Jimmy Rowles - Cecil Taylor - Chick Corea Keith Jarrett - Richie Beirach ...

    Editorial Review

    Thelonious Sphere Monk was a towering figure in the story of modern jazz. He was also one of the great originals in all of jazz history, with a unique piano style perfectly suited to his visionary approach to composition and improvisation. He is even better remembered as the composer of some of the classics of jazz: 'Round About Midnight and Blue Monk. For years regarded as a far-out eccentric, Monk has now taken his rightful place in the pantheon of jazz greats.Monk's music is a challenge on any instrument, and particularly for fingerstyle guitar. Duck Baker draws on his experience performing and arranging many jazz styles, from ragtime to free jazz, in attempting to capture Monk's bittersweet harmonic feeling on the six strings of the guitar. Duck teaches arrangements of Blue Monk, Lulu's Back in Town, 'Round About Midnight and Light Blue. As a bonus, rare footage of Monk performing the first three tunes is included from a 1966 concert with his great quartet featuring Charlie Rouse.Duck Baker's ability to clearly explain and demonstrate his arrangements in an engaging fashion has been noted by both critics and students of his instructional videos, as have his exceptional talents as a guitarist and arranger. The Music of Thelonious Monk Arranged for Fingerstyle Guitar is a unique DVD lesson that only Duck Baker could have put together. 92 minutes / Level 3 / 24 page tab/music booklet ... Read more

    Amazon.comPiano Legends, hosted by the incomparable keyboardist ChickCorea, unveils the entire spectrum of jazz piano. It features over 20 clipsculled from the archives of coproducer Dave Chertok, from 1941 to 1986. This 63-minute DVD shows the depth and diversity of keyboard styles, from ragtime,stride, swing, bebop, and hard bop to the avant-garde. Corea brilliantly andsuccinctly spells out each pianist's style and how each fits into the jazzcontinuum. The best clips feature the stomping left-hand of Thomas "Fats"Waller, the superhuman technique of Art Tatum and Oscar Peterson, the earthyelegance of Mary Lou Williams, and the cutting-edge harmonies of Cecil Taylor.Other stylists like the powerful McCoy Tyner, the streamlined John Lewis, andthe eclectic Keith Jarrett are also profiled.
