Bebop

Post  Andy on Wed Sep 26, 2012 9:30 pm

So I'm reading So What - a Miles-bio, peeps got to keep busy.
Anyway, I'm into a chapter in which the writer-man speaks very much about a thang called Bebop - i think he likes it.
So, what records and or recordings would the hepkatz of ATU advice to other katz to get a bit into bebop? bounce

Peace!

acquire the available FATS NAVARRO. Then you must decide if you want ANNOYING BOP or BOP THAT IS PLEASANT TO LISTEN TO. If you want Squawk Bop there is the Charles Parker skool. If you want bop that is enjoyable there is Bud Powell, Art Blakey, Horace Silver et al. A ver basic gift basket would probly include MONK'S MUSIC and late bop GIANT STEPS and crap by the evil Mingus. Then you can move to Post Bop which is the sound of consciousness itself.


ROOKIE ERROR #3:


DO NOT CONFUSE DO DO WAP FOR BE BOP.

I don't know if you can find it any more, but there used to be a 40-CD box entitled ...



... which has Fats Navarro, Charlie Shavers, Dexter Gordon, Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, and many others.

Some others you might be interested in:

-- Bud Powell -- The Scene Changes
-- Bud Powell -- The Amazing Bud Powell Vol. I and Vol. II
-- Horace Silver, et. al. -- Horace Silver and the Jazz Messengers
-- Art Blakey -- Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and Thelonious Monk

It's time we had the HARD BOP Discussion. It's time. If every bone in Hard Bop's body was broken, Hard Bop would never admit it. HARD BOP is the juzz equivalent of Bobby Dylan's singing or Mr. Malmsteen's axe-wielding or noted Canadian performance artist Tom Green's most accomplisheded opuses plus grande. : i.e. the performer utilizes every blasted manoeuver in the Breen Council of Elders Trick Satchel Officiel so as to, like, forestall les audiences from looking at they watch or flipping thru the Albany Pennysaver etc. Anyhow, LeVar Burton never said you have to take his word for it, so don't act like he did, OK. Not kewl. OTOH.

At least Tom Green went to Afganistan to visit the troops.

Soviet hard bop--Lena Bloch says the label is wrong:

"The label is not for this track, though. I played with Tovmasian in Moscow...

Thank you for your comment.
Perhaps I've posted the label of the flipside.

I've always enjoyed this dig on bebop in Terry Pratchett's & Neil Gaiman's otherwise mildly boring "Good Omens":

"Somewhere around Chiswick, Aziraphale scrabbled vaguely in the scree of tapes in the glove compartment. "What's a Velvet Underground?" he said. "You wouldn't like it," said Crowley. "Oh," said the angel dismissively. "Be-bop." - "Do you know, Aziraphale, that probably if a million human beings were asked to describe modern music, they wouldn't use the term 'be-bop'?" said Crowley."
