Downbeat Interview
Art Blakey and Japan: their Mutual Love Affair
This 1961 Down Beat interview of Art Blakey by Don DeMichael, took place soon after the Jazz Messengers first trip to Japan in January of that year. Buhaina never let the truth ruin a good story, but his telling of his ground-breaking Japanese tour, which opened the country up for modern jazz artists, is not exaggerated. I went to Japan three or four times with Blakey in the ‘80s and the love that the Japanese people have for Art is extraordinary. It was a thing to behold.

Mainly reblogging because this picture of Art Blakey is fucking RAGING. Drum annihilation.

The History of the New York Art Quartet
The New York Art Quartet with John Tchicai, Roswell Rudd and Milford Graves was emblematic of the mid ‘60s avant-garde scene in New York City, where musicians were looking to break away from the even the new music of Coltrane and Coleman and find different ways of organizing rhythms and improvisations. Adam Shatz, in reviewing the documentary on the group “The Breath Courses Through Us” and the recent boxed set “Call It Art,” gives us a fascinating history of the band’s origins and setting.

Sam Rivers - Point of Many Returns (1965)

This cut absolutely simmers thanks to the impeccable musicianship on hand [Hubbard, Hancock, Carter, Chambers!], but it is Rivers’ angular writing—which maintains a deep driving pulse even as it wanders astray—and his transcendent soprano solo that steal the show.

Thank you, Sam Rivers.
