the persistence of memory

And so it comes ’round again: our In Memoriam issue, JazzTimes’ 15th annual collection of tributes to significant figures in the jazz community who left our plane of existence in the preceding year. (If you want to learn how this tradition got started, read Lee Mergner’s JT 50 column on pg. 8.) It’s a testament to just how many such figures passed away last year that this issue’s tributes have spilled over the page count originally allotted to them and seeped into other parts of the magazine. John Edward Hasse’s essay on Rep. John Conyers is in Opening Chorus, while Nicholas Payton’s memories of fellow New Orleanian Dr. John can be found on our back page. This was due in part to the deaths of Jack Sheldon and Vic Juris…

jazz’s advocate-in-chief

Within the arts community, longtime U.S. Congressman John Conyers, who passed away on October 27 at the age of 90, was regarded as one of the most persistent and influential advocates of the uniquely American music called jazz. I knew him for more than 30 years, working with him on a number of initiatives at the Smithsonian Institution, where I was the curator of American music. We bonded because of jazz, which he championed as a proud product of African-American and American culture. Sometimes he would invite me to his office to talk about the music, and he spoke frequently at the Smithsonian, including (to my everlasting gratitude) at my 2017 retirement party. Though his hometown of Detroit became well-known to the public as the headquarters of Motown, Conyers’ ears were…

the optimist

On tenor saxophone, Jure Pukl possesses a sleek tone with which he sculpts alluring melodies, accentuated by coruscating passages. When he talks about his music or about life in his home country of Slovenia, the allure is similar; he draws you in immediately with his ebullient cadence. Pukl’s latest disc, Broken Circles (Whirlwind)—featuring vibraphonist Joel Ross, bassist Matt Brewer, drummer Kweku Sumbry, and guitarist Charles Altura—isn’t quite so bubbly. It’s a call to arms for people worldwide to treat each other with greater respect. “I’m very involved with the political and social state the world’s in,” the 42-year-old Pukl explains on a late September afternoon as he sits in the spacious Harlem apartment he shares with his wife, fellow saxophonist Melissa Aldana. The impetus behind Broken Circles is, in two words, compassion…

jt 50

This month: March 2006 The March 2006 issue was the first in which we ran a section of Farewell tribute pieces about those who had died during the preceding year. The concept was inspired (euphemism for theft) by a poignant piece in Entertainment Weekly written by Tony Randall about his pal Jack Klugman—the Oscar to his Felix, as people of a certain age will recognize. It seemed to me that this approach to remembering the departed would work well in JazzTimes. Indeed, the Farewell pieces we commissioned over the next dozen years proved to be some of the most memorable articles in our history, at least for me. I still vividly recall Les McCann writing about producer Joel Dorn that “I wish I had that same relationship with the women in…

In the first half of the 20th century, the Kansas City jazz scene was one of the country’s most vibrant hubs of blues and improvisation, home to such pioneers as Jay McShann, Bennie Moten, Count Basie, and, of course, Charlie Parker, the architect of bebop. If the scene isn’t what it once was—how could it be?—it’s still more than healthy. “A lot of guys move to Kansas City in search of work,” says Gerald Dunn, director of entertainment at the Blue Room, Kansas City’s premier jazz club. “I think cats are able to do all sorts of gigs. It’s sort of like it was back when they used to call Kansas City the ‘Paris of the Plains.’” In his role at the Blue Room, part of Kansas City’s American Jazz Museum—which, like…
