Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, August 21, 1974 Jazz musicians enjoy resurgence Dizzie Gillespie performs with offbeat horn. TORONTO (CP) When the early years following the Second World War brought a new life-style to North Amer- ica, many traditions took a back seat to the younger trend. The big-band sound of the 1940s was one of the in- stitutions overshadowed by the television, whose popu- larity brought an end to the age of the radio, ballroom and many of the major night- clubs. For two decades the music which flourished following Bill Haley's rock-around-the- clock period dominated the song-and-dance industry. The great jazzmen were put aside by younger audiences but were not left behind. Names which helped build the swing-big band era are experiencing a resurgence and beginning to to attract audiences that were too young to know them the first time around. The popular music Make the fresh fruit season last all year. Preserve 'B.C.' Peaches now. Summer sunshine you can taste all winter long that's the whole idea behind preserving "B.C." brand Peaches.

Toronto, Winnipeg and Van- couver were given the oppor- tunity this summer to hear jazz at its best in the first an- nual Belvedere Jazz Festival, which featured some of the legendary names of contem- porary music.

The Toronto engagement also featured the great Count Basic, who after 25 years at the helm of big bands contin- ues to deliver the same rich, pulsating sounds which char- acterize his music. In interviews between shows, most of the per- formers expressed delight in the attention younger people are giving their music. But more than one argued that the jazz scene is not experiencing a rebirth, because it never died. Clarinetist De Franco, who for the last eight years was involved in the softer swing sounds fronting the Glenn Mil- ler Orchestra, said he got back into the jazz idiom be- cause "jazz started to perk up again throughout the world." "Rock hit a point of no re- turn, melodically and har- monically. "The young people are starting to get a little bored and are looking for more so- phisticated things in music. You can sense it." Demurs This attitude was qualified by Gillespie, who decades ago was active in the transition from the swing era to pro- gressive jazz. He said jazz musicians do not turn up their noses at today's rock 'n' roll sound, viewing it rather as an extension of the earlier music forms. "The main change in jazz today is the rhythmic part of said flautist-saxist Moe Koffman of Toronto, whose recording of Swingin' Shep- herd Blues was the hit in- strumental of 1958. "Jazz players have become excited about the rock rhythms that have entered into the music business. Jazz has become a marriage of ev- ery type of music." That sentiment is evident in Koffman's albums, in which he blends jazz sounds with contemporary, rock and clas- sical music. Whereas songstress McRae attributed the new jazz popu- larity to the increased num- ber of young persons in the audiences, drummer Beilson cited the rising number of young musicians in the jazz ensembles. Seminars "One reason for this is the superior music education sys- said Beilson, who recorded with Gene Krupa. "Kids today are just as good as the old cats. They are exposed to bigger and better things." Beilson, like Gillespie, De Franco, Herman, Ferguson and others, is ensuring that today's youth continue to be so exposed. Following a move started by pianist-composer Stan Kenton in the 1950s, they are visiting high school and college campuses regularly, conducting workshop sessions and seminars. It's paying off. New groups are emerging like Supersax, winner of the Grammy Award for best jazz performance by a group this year.
