Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Although he cut his teeth playing trumpet with Fletcher Henderson's orchestra, Rex Stewart was best known for his tenure with Duke Ellington--particularly for the sort of delicious half-valving he applied to showpieces like "Boy Meets Horn." But Stewart was a gifted writer, too. He brought an insider's authority to his considerations of Art Tatum, Red Norvo, Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins, and Ellington himself (for whom Stewart also functioned as barber and poker companion). And his essays on other musicians often contain flashes of appealing autobiography. Here, for example, he uses his own hero-worshipping impulses as a measure of Louis Armstrong's early impact: "I tried to walk like him, talk like him. I bought shoes and a suit like the Great One wore. I remember a time that a few of us ... thought it would be a good idea to stand under Louis's window and serenade him. This occurred to us in the wee hours after we had emerged from a bar. We had just got started when the cop on the beat discouraged us by saying, 'Get the hell off the streets before I run ya in.'" -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Synopsis

}This is the only jazz history written by a musician that is not strictly autobiographical. Rex Stewart, who played trumpet and cornet with Fletcher Henderson and Duke Ellington, knew personally all the giants of jazz in the 1930s and thus his judgments on their achievements come with unique authority and understanding. As a good friend, he never minimizes their foibles; yet he writes of them with affection and generosity. Chapters on Fletcher Henderson, Coleman Hawkins, Red Norvo, Art Tatum, Big Sid Catlett, Benny Carter, and Louis Armstrong mix personal anecdotes with critical comments that only a fellow jazz musician could relate. A section on Ellington and the Ellington orchestra profiles Ben Webster, Harry Carney, Tricky Sam Nanton, Barney Bigard, and Duke himself, with whom Rex Stewart was a barber, chef, poker opponent, and third trumpet. Finally, he recounts the stories of legendary jam sessions between Jelly Roll Morton, Willie the Lion Smith, and James P. Johnson, all vying for the unofficial title of king of Harlem stride piano. It was the decade of swing and no one saw it, heard it, or wrote about it better than Rex Stewart. } -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Von Ein Kunde am 5. August 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
Rex Stewart offers chapters on some of his contemporary jazz musicians; most of these articles have appeared in Downbeat issues in the sixties before they were collected for this book. They offer very interesting insights into some his colleagues; they are well-written and full of anecdotes. They make an enjoyable and worthwhile reading. Highly recommended.

Eyewitness to Swing 18. März 2014
Von Jim Ziegler "Zig" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Who better to write about the jazz and the jazz players of the 1930's than a great musician who was actually there - Rex Stewart. Rex's stories are funny, insightful, and interesting, and he descibes some of the great musicians of that era...Coleman Hawkins, Benny Carter, Fletcher Henderson, and Art Tatum to name just a few. A great read.
Rex Stewart in his anecdotage. 27. August 2014
Von Laurence Goldstein - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Not an analysis or portrait of jazz masters of the thirties. Rex Stewart was a first rate trumpeter who played with everyone (think Fletcher Henderson and Duke Ellington among others) and here he revels in his anecdotage. A better book than a history.
