After Hours in Harlem 1941

Charlie Christian - Dizzy Gillespie - Thelonious Monk - After Hours 1941

Recorded live at Minton's Playhouse
and Clark Monroe's Uptown House in New York, N Y

in May 6, 1941 and May 12, 1941.

Charlie Christian ~ guitar
Dizzy Gillespie ~ trumpet
Rudy Williams ~ alto saxophone
Don Byas, Kermit Scott ~ tenor saxophone
Joe Guy, Hot Lips Page, Victor Coulson ~ trumpet
Thelonious Monk, Al Tinney, Ken Kersey ~ piano
Nick Fenton, Ed Paul ~ bass
Kenny Clarke, Tom Miller ~ drums

Originally released on Esoteric (548)

1. Swing to Bop (Improvisation)
2. Stompin' at the Savoy
3. Up on Teddy's Hill (Improvisation)
4. Down on Teddy's Hill (Improvisation)
5. Guy's Got to Go (Improvisation)
6. Lips Flips (Improvisation)
7. Stardust (#1)
8. Kerouac (Improvisation)
9. Stardust (#2)

AFTER HOURS is an excellent live document of the early roots of bebop, capturing this exciting music in the process of being built by its pioneering architects. Recorded live in New York City at jam sessions at Minton's Playhouse and Monroe's Uptown House in 1941, these tapes feature young modernists Charlie Christian, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Kenny Clarke, and Don Byas as they pushed the structural materials of swing toward something new and intense.

Beyond the historical significance of these sessions, however, the music is simply fabulous. There are revisions of "Stardust" and "Stompin' at the Savoy, " but the tunes are mainly blues-based improvisations, with plenty of syncopated play and stretched-out soloing from all involved. Christian's guitar takes center stage--his fluid, fleet-fingered style and mellow amplified tone have become such a stock part of jazz guitar, it is hard to remember that he almost single-handedly wrote the book. Though Gillespie gets double-billing on this set, he only appears on four of the nine tunes, but one can hear early hints of the advanced technical style that would explode in his work with Charlie Parker in the later '40s. This music is truly classic.

Minton’s Days (1940-45)

This revolutionary period of music, a round-up of jazz giants in New York City’s Minton’s Café, later known as ‘bebop’ movement, was a doomed one, too. Due to strike of ‘American Federation of Musicians’, there isn’t any official recording from that time and there are only a few low quality private recordings that have opened their way into collector’s archives.
Monk’s role in those sessions was probably more than anybody else; after all he was the house pianist and arranger of the new materials that was coming from everywhere. It was his harmonic variations that fueled the bop revolution. All cats, from Coleman Hawkins to Don Byas, were there. Charlie Christian on guitar was a min force. The drummer of the sessions was Kenny ‘Klook’ Clarke. After hours, when the whole town was asleep, Roy Eldridge, Hot ‘Lips’ Page and Dizzy Gilespie, with their fiery trumpets and free from commercial gigs were the regular guests of the café.

The only record left from Minton’s, under the Monk’s own name is After Hours at Minton’s, recorded in 1943 and issued by obscure “DefinitiveClassics” label. The line up consists of Eldridge (tp), page (tp), Herbie Fields (ts), Al Sears (ts), Christian (g), Nick Fenton (b), and Clarke (d).
Only for completation of this period, there are four tracks from Monk in Coleman Hawkins’ Bean and the Boys (Prestige PR 7824) recorded October 19, 1944 in New York City and a live recording with Dizzy Gillespie’s orchestra in Spotlite club,1946, issued under the title, Dizzy Gillespie '46 Live At The Spotlite

Biography by Chris Kelsey
Conrad Herwig is one of New York's more prominent young progressive/mainstream trombonists. He has recorded and/or performed with a number of famous leaders, including, but not limited to, Joe Henderson, Jack DeJohnette, and Paquito D'Rivera. Herwig is an alumni of the famous University of North Texas jazz program, an experience that obviously prepared him well as a big band player. He began his professional career in the early '80s with Clark Terry's big band; stints with Buddy Rich, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Mel Lewis, and others were to follow. Herwig became an increasingly in-demand sideman in the '90s. He is an accomplished pedagogue, having taught clinics and workshops around the world. Herwig is on the faculty at William Patterson College in New Jersey. His seventh album as a leader, The Latin Side of John Coltrane, emphasizes an affinity for South American idioms. Criss Cross followed in 1998 and a year later, Herwig resurfaced with Osteology. Unseen Universe followed in fall 2000.

Review by Scott Yanow
Trombonist Conrad Herwig, who had previously recorded The Latin Side of John Coltrane, is at it again. Another Kind of Blue has versions of the five songs from Miles Davis' Kind of Blue ("So What," "Freddie Freeloader," "Blue in Green," "All Blues," and "Flamenco Sketches") plus "Petits Machins" performed by a Latin jazz nonet. The results are quite enjoyable and, with the exception of the repertoire and a couple orchestrated sections for the ensemble (the introduction of "So What" by Bill Evans and Paul Chambers, and Davis' trumpet solo on "Freddie Freeloader"), the music has little connection to the original Kind of Blue with Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Cannonball Adderley. Instead, the transformation serves as a good excuse for the all-star group to romp and come up with fresh ideas. Herwig, trumpeter Brian Lynch, baritonist Mario Rivera, and flutist Dave Valentin have their moments, but Paquito D'Rivera on alto and clarinet constantly steals solo honors; he is too exciting to be denied. The horns are inspired by a blazing rhythm section consisting of pianist Edsel Gomez, bassist John Benitiz, drummer Robby Ameen, and percussionist Richie Flores. It is particularly interesting hearing such unlikely material as "Blue in Green" and "Flamenco Sketches" turned into Afro-Cuban jazz. Another Kind of Blue is quite successful on its own terms and well worth picking up.

Is Ripping CDs Ripping Off Artists?

A pirataria é um método fabuloso de distribuição de conteúdos – nem vale a pena chamar-lhe pirataria, como convém aos mafiosos da RIAA, mas partilha.

Para um músico ou outro artista qualquer, a disseminação da sua obra é mais importante do que ser ignorado ou explorado por essas organizações.
