The March Jazz Scene

Alto saxophonist Charles “Yarbird” Parker was one of the founders and inventors of what we now know as "modern jazz."

Bop Goes the Opera - In 2002, the brilliant saxophonist Joe Lovano took the jazz-meets-classical music concept outside of the box when he recorded jazz versions of tunes from the songbook of opera legend Enrico Caruso. While Viva Caruso was critically acclaimed and did well for Lovano and Blue Note Records, it represented, at the time, the beginning and end of jazz versions of operatic compositions and vice-versa. Until now.

The Story of Duke Ellington's Longtime Tenor Sax Bandman

Tenor saxophonist Paul Gonsalves with Duke Ellington

Duke Ellington was a fascinating figure—so much so that quite a number of books and shorter profiles of the man came to be during his time, and well after his passing. Writers were always peering over his shoulder, trying to get a fix on how he operated his band and made it so successful; they even attempted to poke into his personal life, which the Duke managed to keep fairly secret.

JP Jazz Archive Redferns
