{WDR BIG BAND} feat. Richard Bona - Full Concert | Leverkusener Jazztage 2015


[Germany]
https://youtu.be/FxDESWHKR9g?start=22
Neben seinem melodiösen, teils hypnotisierenden Bassspiel ist sein warmer Gesang im Douala-Dialekt zu einem weiteren Markenzeichen von Richard Bona geworden. Gemeinsam mit der WDR Big Band spielt und singt er viele eigene "African Songs & Tales" auf den 36. Leverkusener Jazztagen. Die Leitung des Konzerts hat Vince Mendoza. Weiterer Gastsolist ist Rhani Krija an den Perkussions. Richard Bona does not only play the e-bass in a harmonic and hypnotic way , but also his singing in the dialect of Douala is one of his famous brand-label. Together with the {WDR Big Band} he performs at the 36.th Leverkusener Jazzfestival. Vince Mendoza conducts the {WDR Big Band}. Rhani Krija plays percussions.

Big Valses - {Brussels Jazz Orchestra}


[Belgium]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaY…
Enregistrement Live à "DeSingel" Anvers (Be) le 28/11/15. Comp. & Arrgt. Pierre Drevet inspiré des "Valses Nobles et Sentimentales" de Maurice Ravel avec le Brussels Jazz Orchestra. Retransmission aussi sur DJazzTV. Big Valses...!! C'est la contraction de "Big Band » et de "Valses Nobles et Sentimentales ». M. Ravel fait partie de mon univers musical depuis longtemps. J’ai beaucoup étudié les partitions de sa musique pour piano, musique de chambre, orchestre et j'ai toujours été admiratif de son génie de la composition et de l’orchestration. Il donne l’impression de « colorier l’harmonie ». J'avais l'idée depuis longtemps d'écrire et de remanier ces Valses, et c'est l'écoute d'une version du « Tombeau de Couperin »,magnifiquement adaptée et arrangée par Florian Ross, pianiste de jazz et arrangeur Allemand, qui a déclenché ce projet. Les valses originales durent 15mn en 8 numéros et j'en ai fait une suite d'environ une heure pour grand orchestre de jazz. Maurice Ravel les a composées en 1911 pour le piano et orchestrées l'année suivante. Le début du XXème siècle marque l’émergence du jazz et Ravel s’en est parfois inspiré comme dans son "concerto en sol". Pourquoi donc ne pas écrire et remanier cette suite pour un grand orchestre de jazz? La décision prise, j'ai pris mon crayon et travaillé pendant six mois… C'était un rêve de réaliser un « mix croisé » entre cette musique impressionniste.

Buddy Rich Live at The Montreal Jazz Festival


[Canada]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRK…
Buddy and his band at the height of their popularity and influence, with seven arrangements that display not only Buddy Rich’s virtuosity but his unsurpassed musicianship, as well. Arguably the greatest jazz drummer of all time, the legendary Buddy Rich exhibited his love for music through the dedication of his life to the art. His was a career that spanned seven decades, beginning when Rich was 18 months old and continuing until his death in 1987. Immensely gifted, Rich could play with remarkable speed and dexterity despite the fact that he never received a formal lesson and refused to practice outside of his performances.

Christian McBride Big Band 2018



https://youtu.be/t3R94vBtkts
The Christian McBride Big Band is a 17-piece, twenty-first century, big band whose debut album The Good Feeling received the Grammy Award for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album in 2012. The group, along with the Roy Hargrove Big Band and the Mingus Big Band have swung the pendulum back that pulled small ensemble African-American Jazz into white mainstream popular music during what was dubbed the "Big Band Era" or Swing Era of the mid-1930s to the late mid-1940s, creating a new big-band sound that fuses traditional Big Band long-form compositions with more modern post-Bop sound. The band has performed at clubs in New York, where most of the musicians are based, and at major festivals like the Playboy Jazz Festival in Los Angeles or the James Moody Festival in Newark.

Count Basie at Carnegie Hall


[United States (USA)]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hL7…
William James "Count" Basie (August 21, 1904 – April 26, 1984) was an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. His mother taught him to play the piano and he started performing in his teens. Dropping out of school, he learned to operate lights for vaudeville and to improvise accompaniment for silent films at a local movie theater in his home town of Red Bank, New Jersey. By age 16, he increasingly played jazz piano at parties, resorts and other venues. In 1924, he went to Harlem, where his performing career expanded; he toured with groups to the major jazz cities of Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City. In 1929 he joined Bennie Moten's band in Kansas City, and played with them until Moten's death in 1935. In 1935, Basie formed his own jazz orchestra, the Count Basie Orchestra, and in 1936 took them to Chicago for a long engagement and their first recording. He led the group for almost 50 years, creating innovations like the use of two "split" tenor saxophones, emphasizing the rhythm section, riffing with a big band, using arrangers to broaden their sound, and others. Many musicians came to prominence under his direction, including the tenor saxophonists Lester Young and Herschel Evans, the guitarist Freddie Green, trumpeters Buck Clayton and Harry "Sweets" Edison and singers Jimmy Rushing and Joe Williams.

Buddy Rich Live in The Hague 1978


[Netherlands]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEt…
Buddy Rich leads a group of talented young musicians in his 1978 set from the Northsea Jazz Festival in Holland, videotaped for television broadcast. This color DVD, from the first of the acclaimed Jazz Icons series, features Rich with his Killer Force, a band he named after seeing a then-current Clint Eastwood film. Steve Marcus is extensively featured throughout a good part of the set, playing soprano in the lovely waltz "Best Coast" and Joe Zawinul's fusion hit "Birdland." He's primarily heard on tenor, highlighted by his blazing extended solo in "Channel One Suite," a favorite of Rich's musicians. There are several other great soloists in the band, though their time in the spotlight is usually brief. The drummer presses the band throughout the date and his extended solos are full of fire. Toward the end of the concert, Rich shows his vaudeville roots by teasing the audience and dumping a cup of water over his head after returning to his drums, then looking skyward as if it was raining. Bill Potts' Count Basie-like blues riff provides a swinging conclusion. The packaging includes numerous band photos and detailed liner notes by former Rich trumpeter Dean Pratt (who left the band a few months prior to this concert), plus a previously published interview of the bandleader by Mel Tormé. Well photographed and edited, with excellent audio, Jazz Icons: Live in '78 captures Buddy Rich & His Killer Force in a memorable performance.

The Thad Jones - Mel Lewis Big Band


[United States (USA)]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWa…
Thaddeus Joseph Jones (28 mars 1923 -- 21 août 1986) est un trompettiste, compositeur et chef d'orchestre de jazz américain. Thad Jones est né à Pontiac (Michigan) dans une famille nombreuse de musiciens (un de ses frères plus âgé est le pianiste Hank Jones et un autre plus jeune le batteur Elvin Jones). Autodidacte, Thad Jones est musicien professionnel dès l'âge de 16 ans. Il joue dans des orchestres de l'U.S. Army pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale de 1943 à 1946. Après la guerre, Thad Jones poursuit sa carrière et vers 1954, il compose et fait des arrangements pour Count Basie avec lequel il joue. Il reste avec Basie pendant neuf ans. La musique de Jones était d'un style très original qui ne correspondait pas toujours avec le style de l'orchestre de Basie. Au début des années 1960, il devient arrangeur indépendant dans la région de New York. En 1965, avec le batteur Mel Lewis, il forme le Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Big Band (successeur aujourd'hui: {Vanguard Jazz Orchestra}). À l'origine le groupe commence par des jam sessions informelles dans les studios de New York puis au célèbre Village Vanguard. Le groupe reçoit un accueil très favorable et Jones continue à le diriger pendant 12 ans. En 1979, ils remportent un Grammy Awards pour l'album Live in Munich. Jones a aussi enseigné au William Paterson College dans le New Jersey.

Count Basie Live in Paris


[France]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzk…
This is the Concert at the Salle de Congrés. Between the first and second concerts I saw Freddie Green and Sonny Cohn (have a photo with them) having a drink between the two concerts, so I just took the courage and invited the whole Orchestra to the Pieds de Cochons, Les Halles to dinner after the second concert. Mr. Basie couldn't join us because of health reasons. My income at that time allowed me to drive a 1200 VW Beetle at that time - so for a month I had to live on bread and water for a month
