NEA Jazz Masters

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), every year honors up to seven jazz musicians with Jazz Master Awards. The National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Fellowships are the self-proclaimed highest honors that the United States bestows upon jazz musicians.[1] The award is usually given late in a performer's career after they have long established themselves.

Transcription

[solo bass in background] When I hear Charlie play the bass, I hear love, sadness, yearning. I hear deep, deep feeling. I hear poetry. What Charlie functions on is pure instinct. Now he happens to have the taste, the training, and the creativity to make that work. He also has helped further the art form, having the bass stand out as a soloist, as an independent musical instrument. All that he's ever done comes through the superior relationship between him and his instrument. So he played things on the bass that other bass players would not have played. In the late '50s, early '60s, Charlie was really one of the most revolutionary musicians to emerge in jazz. He had a very fundamental sense of music and I think it came from his country and folk roots. His country background made it easier for him to get along with Ornette Coleman, cause Ornette Coleman is about as country as you can be - he is not white country, but he’s country - that put him right with Ornette Coleman from the moment he met him. I first heard Ornette at this club on Wilshire Boulevard called The Haight. I said, Man this guy could play man. I never heard anything like this in my life. This is the way I hear, you know? I’m hearing music just like this. The chemistry between Charlie and Ornette was something very beautiful. Somehow they meet in some very unique musical level that not everyone meets in. In the 1960’s, Charlie felt very passionate about the fact that there was so much injustice going on, felt a burning desire to express himself through music. When you think of the Liberation Orchestra, it’s inseparable with the people who were musicians in it. They collected material from various eras and fashioned it in a way that had its own unique sound. It was a revolutionary band because it was the first jazz orchestra that spoke specifically not just about racism but also about the Vietnam war and about war in general and using that kind of music as a platform for improvisation. You need someone that has vision and inspiration and a sense of innovation to make the bass speak out to its full potential. There are so many possibilities with that instrument.
