Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta J4 THE LETHBRIPGE HERALD Monday, November 15, T97I i You RCAAP patrol: night life with difference AV Ask Me. by HERB JOHNSON HAT Till.

No one has ever been Me In define u That pretty much takes care of the explana- tion of v.hat iaz.7. music is'. However, "we can safely say that jazz music doe? exist. People have been using tn describe variola musi- cal idioms since the early 20th century, 50 there must be some kind uf music actually being played Uiat fits into this broad category. If it were otherwise people would nut be around using [ho word. Actually, the fact Unit no cr.e can define jazz with any degree of 'accuracy is central to the argument into which we shali launch. cannot he pinned down because it keeps shifting around. Livery time it seems to be settled down into a nice comfortable groove the public can understand and accept, the musicians move on to something else. 'This process of musical evolution is, of course, net unique to jazz1. An important facet of the evolutionary process is the periodic surfacing of underground activity into the public spctlisht. For example Dixieland was the big thing in the lilMs, an era that is still kawn as the Jazz Age A particular form of jazz was imprinted on the national consciousness and ii. remains there for those who were young at that time. Grow up with Dixieland in yctir ears and you never really tcrget it. The same thing happened during thc Swing Era Re- member Goodman. Miller. Shaw and the rest? Of course you do. West lazz made a similar impression on a genera- tion in thc 'Ms. hard bop still has its followers, as does the bop phenomenon of tire '40s that preceded it. Jazz keeps changing and every time it does at least some of the musicians involved gain some public recognition. Jazz is the common thread that runs through the entire North American music scene. now some of tho best jazz players are deeply in- volved in rock music, and vice versa. What we have today is a society that has never really understood that everybody has a common musical heritage. The yotingsters look down on their parents' "square" Count Basic records dcn't realize that Basie and Jimi Hen- drlx are soul brothers The parents, of course, are in tire same boat. Critic Albert Goldstein has observed a mixed crowd of young and old at a jazz dub discovering that they don't really have a generation gap after all. It could happen here. There has been periodic talk of starting a new jazz club Why not? Make it wide open. There's no reason some of the older musicians cant get together with the rock play- ers, just as long as both keep their ears and minds open. Don't call it a jazz club. Call it a music club. Avoid labels and just play music. It could be a real vitalizing force on the mu- sic scene Everybody wouid come and listen and play music and have fun. That's what a jazz club is a place to play any kind of music, just for the fun of it. Jean Noble dies BENNETT was granted G. R.
