Jazz Reading RoomThe New Frontier for Music Books: Not Just Paper: Video and Audio, Too

I just got a thrill re-reading Peter’s Guralnick’s fabulous “Sweet Soul Music,” the definitive history of Southern soul music from 1986. But I wish I’d waited a year of so. 

This year, seven of his books, some of the very best and readable profiles of American blues, rock, country and soul, are being reissued in enhanced digital versions that include video and audio.

Meticulous in all his research, Peter has saved a lot of his audio interviews, and I can’t wait for his source tapes with legends like Muddy Waters, Johnny Cash, and Willie Dixon.  
This past Sunday, talking about the new enhanced editions in the New York Times, Peter said, “‘People are always interested in talking about who they are and what they do and why they do it, as opposed to all that other stuff” typical of celebrity coverage… “I think people will get into the nuts and bolts, and talk in a different tone, than if you were talking about more clamorous headline kind of stuff.’”
“What I’m looking for is not the myth… I’m trying to get them to talk about what they really do.”

The New York Times has the full story.

Sammy Nestico: Master Big-Band Arranger
At some point, anybody whose ever been part of a big band whether it be a high school dance band or a professional unit, has played a chart by Sammy Nestico. He’s one of the great arrangers of the post-Swing Era and his charts for Count Basie during the 1960s are classics.

Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers: Moanin’ in Brussels, 1958

This clip, which I believe is from a Brussels concert issued on DVD by Jazz Icons, is the November-December 1958 tour by Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers. The band was new and had just finished recording the Blue Note album that introduced Bobby Timmons’ Moanin’ and several classic Benny Golson compositions. Golson only stayed with the band for three months and was replaced by Hank Mobley and finally Wayne Shorter. But here is an early live version of Moanin’ before it was a hit.
