March 13: Traps: The Drum Wonder, The Life of Buddy Rich

     by Mel Torme


Now back in print, this bestseller by Mel Torme is a brilliant biography of his friend for forty years, Buddy Rich, who was one of the most famous drummers of the Swing Era, having starred in the Artie Shaw and Tommy Dorsey bands. His career started when he was two years old in his parents' Vaudeville act, and by the time he was four he was the highest paid child performer in the world. The Buddy Rich story is a fascinating one, as much for what it says about the world of American music and entertainment as for the remarkable life it portrays. Drawing from interviews and many personal reminiscences, Torme packs this biography with vivid, often funny, anecdotes. His personal touch and his in-depth knowledge of jazz make for a moving, insightful, and often hilarious biography.

A native of St. Louis, bass trombonist James A. Martin hasdistinguished himself as a musician of great range and flexibility. A member of the Buddy RichBand from 1985-87 and with the Orchestra del Maggio Musical of Florence, Italyunder Zubin Mehta in 1989 and 1990, Martin has played bass and contrabass tromboneas an extra performer with the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, including severalperformances at Carnegie Hall, the 1995 tour of Japan and several recordings. He hasalso performed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, and theSaint Louis Pops Orchestra on bass trombone, contrabass trombone, tuba, cimbasso,euphonium and bass trumpet. An active freelancer, he performs regularly at theFox Theater and The Muny, and is a member of the St. Louis Brass Ensemble.

Martin is Associate Professor of Instrumental Studies at St. CharlesCommunity
College, where he directs the Concert Band and Jazz Band, teaches lowbrass and courses in brass methods as well as music literature.

Jim received undergraduate degrees in Mathematics and Music Educationfrom St. Louis University and the Master of Music in Trombone Performance fromthe Eastman School of Music, with additional study at the doctoral level. His majorprofessors include John Marcellus, Edward Kleinhammer, Arnold Jacobs, and JeffreyReynolds.

April 10: Freedom of Expression: 
                Interviews with Women in Jazz
by Chris Becker



Since the arrival of the 21st century, jazz has evolved into a truly cross-generational, multicultural musical art form that is assimilating an unprecedented array of musical styles and techniques. At the same time, the male-dominated paradigm that has defined the historical narrative of jazz is no more. Women are shaking up the music industry while the general public is becoming much more aware of the contributions female musicians have made to jazz. "Freedom ofExpression: Interviews With Women in Jazz," a collection of interviews with 37 female musicians, musicians of all ages, nationalities, and races, and representing nearly every style of jazz one can imagine, provides evidence of this profound evolution. The interviewees, including Terri Lyne Carrington, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Eliane Elias, Carmen Lundy, Anat Cohen, Diane Schuur, and Sherrie Maricle, speak about their earliest experiences playing music, the years of practice required to become a professional musician, and what jazz means in the new millennium. These interviews will inform and inspire both casual and seasoned fans of this music, as well as young musicians taking their first steps in the journey to master their craft. “At long last, an in-depth recognition of the female contributions to jazz. As Dr. Billy Taylor said about the lack of awareness of female musicians: ‘If it isn’t written down, it didn’t happen.’ Now everyone will know that it did happen and continues to happen. What a great gift to the history of women and music.” — Judy Chaikin, director of "The Girls in the Band."

May 8: Whisper Not: Thy Autobiography of Benny Golson 
             by Benny Golson

Born during the de facto inaugural era of jazz, saxophonist Benny Golson learned his instrument and the vocabulary of jazz alongside John Coltrane while Golson was still in high school in Philadelphia. Quickly establishing himself as an iconic fixture on the jazz landscape, Golson performed with dozens of jazz greats, from Sonny Rollins, Coleman Hawkins, and Jimmy Heath to Dizzy Gillespie, Freddie Hubbard, and many others. An acclaimed composer, Golson also wrote music for Hollywood films and television and composed such memorable jazz standards as “Stablemates,” “Killer Joe,” and “Whisper Not.”

An eloquent account of Golson’s exceptional life—presented episodically rather than chronologically—Whisper Not includes a dazzling collection of anecdotes, memories, experiences, and photographs that recount the successes, the inevitable failures, and the rewards of a life eternally dedicated to jazz.

June 12: Duke Ellington's America by Harvey G. Cohn

Few American artists in any medium have enjoyed the international and lasting cultural impact of Duke Ellington. From jazz standards such as “Mood Indigo” and “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” to his longer, more orchestral suites, to his leadership of the stellar big band he toured and performed with for decades after most big bands folded, Ellington represented a singular, path-breaking force in music over the course of a half-century. At the same time, as one of the most prominent black public figures in history, Ellington demonstrated leadership on questions of civil rights, equality, and America’s role in the world.

With Duke Ellington’s America, Harvey G. Cohen paints a vivid picture of Ellington’s life and times, taking him from his youth in the black middle class enclave of Washington, D.C., to the heights of worldwide acclaim. Mining extensive archives, many never before available, plus new interviews with Ellington’s friends, family, band members, and business associates, Cohen illuminates his constantly evolving approach to composition, performance, and the music business—as well as issues of race, equality and religion. Ellington’s own voice, meanwhile, animates the book throughout, giving Duke Ellington’s America an intimacy and immediacy unmatched by any previous account.

By far the most thorough and nuanced portrait yet of this towering figure, Duke Ellington’s America highlights Ellington’s importance as a figure in American history as well as in American music.

Songs of Freedom

Ulysses Owens, Jr., Musical Director

featuring Alicia Olatuja & Joanna Majoko


Exclusively Sponsored by Jim & Cathy Berges


“A centerpiece of the program is “Everything Must Change,” associated with Ms. Simone. Alicia Olatuja brings an earnest intensity to the song, bringing it into implicit dialogue with “A Change Is Gonna Come,” the indelible Sam Cooke tune. “No one and nothing stays unchanged,” she sings, and as she slowly builds a crescendo, she hints at both a formidable obstacle and the will to overcome.” – New York Times


First presented under the auspice of Jazz at Lincoln Center, the 1960s are explored through the work of three prolific artists: Joni Mitchell, Abbey Lincoln, and Nina Simone – all of whom have made an indelible mark in music. Each artist expressed freedom in various ways. Joni composed and sung about the freedom of love, Abbey expressed freedom of her individuality and race through her lyricism, and Nina Simone demanded freedom politically through song.  The project is under the musical direction of Grammy Award-winning drummer, Ulysses Owens Jr.


To effectively deliver this vast repertoire, the program features vocalists Alicia Olatuja and Joanna Majoko.

Harlem's Renaissance
Whitaker Jazz Speaks Series

During the Harlem Renaissance, jazz was the soundtrack of daily life during a time when black Americans were exploring what it meant to be both black and American. From Duke Ellington and Fats Waller to Fletcher Henderson, Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong, music permeated every aspect of existence. Compositions like Cotton Club Stomp, Harlem Airshaft, and many more were written through the inspiration musicians gained from the sights, sounds, and general life struggles of living in New York during the 1920s. With jazz as the soundtrack, writers like Langston Hughes, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Zora Neil Hurston provided the script. 


Harlem’s Renaissance will begin with a discussion by Dr. Gerald Early, Merle King Professor of Modern Letters at Washington University, of writers from the Harlem renaissance, and their depictions of life and jazz during that time. Following the discussion will be a performance of works from the Harlem Renaissance from artists including Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton, Bessie Smith, and Louis Armstrong.

Kevin Bowers - NOVA

Nova is the soundtrack to a movie starring Fred Astaire and Lena Horne, directed by Federico Fellini (which is a strong contender for the best movie never made).  It’s the kind of record, at least, you make as one of St. Louis’ most respected drummers, featured in Modern Drummer, fresh from releasing a well-received album with soul-punk band The Feed, and then lately inspired by a deep and deepening trip through Spain.  In other words, it’s intoxicating, it’s invigorating, it’s joyous. Like Kevin Bowers himself, it knows why secrets are whispered. And how to throw a party.

Kevin’s sketch of Spain is the story of two lovers meeting near the Mediterranean Sea. Lyrically, it’s visual, concise, reminiscing. Sonically, it’s expansive, layered, ranging over Latin America and Africa. Brazilian samba, psychedelic rock, solo drum pieces—all find expression in 12 songs attuned to the rhythms of romance and percussive because that’s what love is. The leap forward in songcraft is as much personal as artistic. Nova is not only what a drummer at heart makes but also a genre-hopping composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist. This time out, Bowers focused on arranging material for others to sing.  It was a decision—one he made early on—that guided the tones and textures of the songs themselves: restless, innovative and entirely right for the record. They mean to transport you to a better and exciting place, and they do.

Nova also has the distinction of gathering some of the finest rock, blues and jazz musicians (and friends) in St. Louis. Together, they manage to croon like Tony Bennett, pop like Sergio Mendes and pulse like the Beatles at their trippiest.  This is music that must be performed and heard live, and Kevin is looking forward to just that.

John Scofield Joe Lovano Quartet

Sponsored by Jon & Barbara Topp and Tim & Debbie Callihan


It’s often said that history repeats itself but in the instance of making music, a reunion of two performers will not necessarily bring about the sounds of their collective past. Grammy-winning saxophonist/composer Joe Lovano and the equally lauded guitarist/composer John Scofield are preparing another turn together in the public eye. One of the most popular groups of the early 1990’s, Scofield and Lovano have both built their own followings since departing their shared bandstand.  Since then, the opportunity to hear them together has been few and far between.  Listeners will rejoice at this rare opportunity to hear two modern masters reunite on stage.

Poncho Sanchez & His Latin Jazz Band

Exclusively Sponsored by Ken & Nancy Kranzberg


“As Elvis is to rock and James Brown is to soul, Poncho Sanchez is to salsa…particularly the congas.” –Los Angeles Times


If music were about pictures, percussionist Poncho Sanchez’s music would best be described as a kaleidoscopic swirl of some of the hottest colors and brightest lights to emerge from either side of the border. At any given show, fragments of Latin jazz, swing, bebop, salsa, and other infectious grooves collide and churn in a fiery swirl, with results that are no less than dazzling. Sanchez grew up in a suburb of LA, where he was raised on an unusual cross section of sounds that included straight-ahead jazz, Latin jazz, and American soul. Whatever the genre, the mesmerizing array of sounds and colors from Sanchez’s youth have telegraphed across the decades and continue to inform his creative sensibilities to this day. His over 20-year relationship with Concord Records has yielded two dozen recordings, a Grammy Award, and several Grammy nominations.
