Gary Bartz

Love You Live

Gary Bartz is one of the greatest saxophonists from a golden generation in Jazz. He’s played with jazz luminaries such as Art Blakey, Max Roach, Eric Dolphy, McCoy Tyner, Keith Jarrett and the great Miles Davis. It is a great privilege to welcome him to Love You Live this week discussing his life and his pivotal live music experiences.A consummate performer himself, Bartz is widely recognised as one of the strongest soloists on Miles Davis’ “Live - Evil” and the recording of his band’s performance at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1973 has gone down in history; released in 2003 as “I’ve Known Rivers and Other Bodies”. As a result of his work with so many legends of the jazz world and his ability to blend jazz with alternative styles and social and political messages, Bartz holds a huge amount of resonance with hip-hop and dance music communities to this day.Listen now to hear Gary Bartz discuss his perspective on the forces shaping modern music, how his politics intertwine with his musical ideas and what made that night at Montreux in 1973 so special. Listen all the way to the end to hear trumpeter Theo Croker discuss the influence that Bartz has had on him as a mentor.

The Gary Bartz Interview Set IV

The Jake Feinberg Show

Master composer and musician talks about the backward and misinformed nature of our (US) society.  How the first step towards reconciliation is the way in which history, of this country, is taught in schools. People of color were not the one's who started this problem (sub-human treatment) and can't fix the problem. The hole is deep and "everything is under control" as the Proud Boys mobilize to promote white supremacy but real long term educational reform is needed to educate all people about the history of all Americans.  A lot of brainwashing has already been done so the chores ahead are challenging but its about being on the just and equal side of history. Sobering but recommended listening......

Gary Bartz, le père sprituel du Spiritual Jazz

Deli Express

Il aurait dû venir à Paris au printemps pour la sortie de son nouvel album, mais la crise sanitaire en a décidé autrement !C’est un tel monument du spiritual jazz, qu’on a quand même eu envie de lui passer un coup de fil depuis sa résidence d’Oakland, en Californie.Le saxophoniste Gary Bartz est apparu sur la scène new-yorkaise dans les années 60, participant notamment à l’aventure des Jazz Messengers et s’illustrant auprès du batteur Max Roach.Au début des années 70, parallèlement à son passage dans le groupe de Miles période « Bitches Brew », Gary Bartz s’est imposé comme l’un des chefs de file d’une nouvelle génération fortement engagée dans la valorisation de la culture africaine-américaine et faisant sauter les barrières entre jazz, soul et funk.Ses albums ont fortement influencé des musiciens comme Kamasi Washington et toute la nouvelle scène anglaise, à commencer par le groupe Maisha avec lequel Gary Bartz s’est associé pour ce nouvel album.Nous sommes honorés d'en parler en sa compagnie pour ce tout dernier Deli Express de la saison.

Vincent Herring, Bobby Watson & Gary Bartz • Bird at 100 #bebop

JAZZ по-русски

🆕29 августа 2020 года исполняется 100 лет со дня рождения Charlie Parker. Празднование начинается с саммита альт-саксофонистов: Vincent Herring, Bobby Watson и Gary Bartz, и превосходной ритм-секцией: David Kikoski - piano, Yasushi Nakamura - bass и Carl Allen - drums, на сцене Smoke Jazz & Supper Club. 🎷Программа предлагает плавное сочетание классических мелодий, знакомых стандартов, когда-то записанных Bird (так звали Чарли Паркера), и новых композиций, написанных в честь мастера. 🎷Барц родился как раз в то время, когда Паркер делал свой карьеру в Нью-Йорке, и, таким образом, вырос в музыкальном мире, неизменно отмеченном его безошибочным звучанием. 🎷Уотсон появился в мире менее чем за два года до того, как Паркер покинул его, под присмотром такого великого гиганта первого поколения, как Art Blakey. А Херринг был частью движения, которое представляло бибоп для совершенно нового поколения, поддерживая связь с источником через таких великих мастеров, как Nat Adderley и Freddie Hubbard. #bebop Запись сделана в начале декабря 2019 года, когда я отдыхал на Тенерифе, поэтому эта запись сохранилась на телефоне, и когда я здесь зарегестрировался надо было опубликовать первый эпизод. До этого я публиковался в Телеграм:  https://t.me/discor
