I was surprised to see that the PSU vocal jazz ensemble was also performing because I did my first review on them and I was not a fan. This time around I still did not really like it but it sounded better with no interruptions. The performance had piano, drums and I think it was a cello. The beat in this concert was awesome I loved it I wanted to keep listening to it. I think I liked it more because it had no singers it was just the instruments.
Unfortunately, I do not have the name for this piece as I could not see the board. I liked this piece because the main solo and melody was played on an upright bass. I love the deep sound of this instrument and this piece was also uplifting and cheerful. All the pieces performed were performed well and there was nothing really to dislike about the concert all things considered. My least favorite piece from the whole concert was the last one performed by the Jazz Ensemble I.
Jazz of course, never seems to be the same. B.B. liked to tell stories and talk to his guitar Lucille, but he set a great example for young guitarists all over the world. Something else that I believe is important in the evolution of jazz is the ability to read and understand musical notation. I was surprised to find out how many rock musicians were classically trained.
Many of this success was also influenced from other legendary artists they looked up too for example: Little Richard, Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry. Also, American music such as jazz, country and even Indian music influenced their creativity. They were able to incorporate all styles and make it their own. One of the reason the band was so successful was because they were do dedicated to music, they knew how to satisfy the people and deliver their music. There were even occasions that they would play for more than seven hours.
Comparably, no two humans are indistinguishable. I formerly juxtaposed myself to other classmates, unable to realize we are each exclusive. And most importantly, unexpected intuition is the foundation of jazz. When lacking direction, when missing inspiration, remember to trust the heart. Teenage years are innately stressful, I needed to do what made me merry and jovial.
There was a musical performance of one of the premiere American saxophone quartets, The Amethyst Quartet, on Monday, November 13th at 7:30 p.m. in the Music Concert Hall at San Jose State University. I was so excited because this is my first time that I attended a classical concert that only played by saxophones. There were four different types of saxophones being played, which included a soprano, an alto, a baritone and a bass saxophone. The program contained the Partita IV in D major, BWV 828, the Songs for the Coming Day, the Cerulean and the Andante et Scherzetto. The concert had three sections which were separated by short break.
African Night was truly an Amazing Experience and I commend The African Student Union for providing us with authentic African culture. Africa Night took place March 3rd in the Fine arts building. The audience was mainly college students on the Friday night's show, I attribute this to the lower prices on Friday, as appose to Saturday. For most of the performance the audience listened and watched in awe, but in some portions of the performance I noticed the audience shouting and dancing to some of the music. The show was very entertaining and it kept it kept everyone one the edge of their seat.
Yet for this Adler read, the opposite is true. For me, figure skating was one of these things I was passionate about. Because I had sincerely wanted to be on the ice at 5 in the morning each day, I set myself up to finish 9th at nationals for my division, cementing my own sort of immortality. A passion for piano has done the same sort of thing as well. I have been able to make it into New Trier’s highest Jazz band junior year and have been able to play around the Chicago land area with my own jazz band for gigs.
The versatile clarinetist, saxophonist, and composer, Don Byron, opened the fourth day of the festival, which brought a higher magnetism in terms of concerts. In his very own style and using a cathartic, loose language, Byron started with a dedication to Ornette Coleman, playing one of his tunes. Along the way, he still had time for another tribute, a beautiful ballad, this time in honor of the recently deceased Allen Toussaint. For this freewheeling gathering, he brought the Cuban-born pianist Aruan Ortiz, the veteran bassist Cameron Brown, and the unpretentious drummer Bruce Cox. The performance occurred at the New School Auditorium.
During the 1920s and 1930s jazz began to be popular and interesting among young people, black and whites. They were attracted by the freedom and artistic nature of it. When white popular musicians started to integrate the Bebop style with their own music, it became that much more popular, not only in America, but around the world. Jazz became a way to unify cultures through music. It helped to bring down barriers.
The concert was held at Jazz at the Bistro. It was a tribute to the great trumpet player and St. Louis native Clark Terry. The concert was performed by contemporary trumpet virtuoso Byron Stripling and the Jazz St. Louis Big Band. Clark Terry was a well-known and highly respected trumpeter and flugelhorn player who has had a tremendous influence on jazz and jazz culture in the music’s rich history. Clark Terry’s music deeply moved numerous jazz legends like Byron Stripling, who once said, “You don’t have to be a jazz fan.
Most know the name from the television show; Star Trek: Voyager. Besides his acting, Tim is really a very talented musician. I had the pleasure of interviewing him before the convention about a new CD (Lifeline) He had out. Soon after I reviewed the new release, and then at Space City Comic Con 2015, the live musical performance he put on. In my opinion, could not have come out any better.
