HASH(0x99dd0c54) von 5 Sternen Excellent read 22. Dezember 2008
Von Wecanoe - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I received this book as a gift some years ago. I am a jazz fan (wannabe trad jazz banjo player), also classical, Americana, et al.; anything that is played with skill, intelligence and passion. This book is very well written and provides insight into the amazing lives of two of our many unheralded jazz virtuosos. I have read it more than once and taken their lessons on life and music to heart the best that my abilities allow. A very good read for anyone with a strong interest in the history of jazz and more broadly in music and life.

I knew about Willie Ruff from the last chapter of this book when it appeared in the New Yorker. The rest of the book is quite up to that standard. Reading this book helped me listen better to Willie and Dwike and gave me some insight into their experience.
HASH(0x99dce288) von 5 Sternen The Jazzmen Wailed and Everyone Cried 28. April 2013
Von Mark Mohr - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"Willie and Dwike" has a cherished spot on my bookshelf for a number of reasons. I like jazz and it's an extremely well written book from one of my favorite authors (William Zinsser) about a wonderful jazz duo. Unfortunately, Dwike Mitchell passed away this month (April 2013) leaving a definite void in the musical landscape I enjoy. When "Willie and Dwike" was first published in 1984, it was glowingly reviewed by Edwin Wilson in the Wall Street Journal under the headline "The Jazzmen Wailed and Everyone Cried". The review centered around three musical pieces performed by Willie Ruff and Dwike Mitchell at a publisher's party to celebrate the book's release.

Here's an excerpt of that review: "For their finale the two men played a medley from "Porgy and Bess." When they reached "I Love You, Porgy," I felt my eyes fill with tears. The lyrical beauty of Gershwin's melody, the resonance and purity of Mr. Ruff's French horn and the delicate, mystical quality of Mr. Mitchell's piano affected me in a way I was not prepared for. When they finished playing, I discovered that almost everyone present had been affected in the same way. The publishing official, who previously had spoken perfunctorily stood to thank the musicians but his voice broke and he said simply that he could not remember when he'd last been moved in this way. People were astonished not only that they had been deeply touched but that it had happened so quickly and in so unlikely and unpromising a place.
The one person who was not surprised was the author, Mr. Zinsser. Since he first met Messrs. Ruff and Mitchell at Yale in 1973, Mr. Zinsser has followed their careers and traveled with them on a number of their tours. Wherever he saw them play - for homefolks in Muscle Shoals, Ala., for employees at the John Deere headquarters outside Moline, Ill., or for a group of restrained, bewildered music students at the Shanghai Conservatory in China - Mr. Zinsser observed their uncanny ability to communicate with audiences."

If that doesn't make you want to read this book, I'll eat my pork pie hat.

The story of the Mitchell/Ruff Duo is rivoting and comprehensive about these two brilliant musicians from birth through life to great success on the concert stage. Unfortunately, pianist Dwike Mitchell passed away a year ago, but his skill on the keyboard remains indelible. I always thought he was more talented than Art Tatum, and I recorded him 60 years ago to prove that statement! ( Dwike once told me in Columbus,OH, "It takes both the white and black keys to play 'The Star Spangled Banner.'" And that comment came after he was refused entrance into a campus restaurant at THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY where he was appearing in a solo concert that evening! PS I organized a picket line of protest against the restaurant the next day and they had to close down a week later. Then I received a lot of hate mail and phone calls from the Jim Crowers in Ohio. So be it.
