Piet Mondrian is best known for painting primary colored squares and rectangles. For this episode, fellow art teacher, Jeff Arndt and I talked about the big ideas that led Mondrian to make such simple work. He pushed the ideas of modern abstract art farther than anyone else. Mondrian limited himself to basic elements of simple lines, shapes and colors to focus on the principles of design like balance and proportion. A common misconception about Mondrian is that his personal life was as bland as his art. Mondrian was actually quite charming. He took pains to be elegantly dressed at all times, he was kind and and avid dancer. He was said to be great at the foxtrot and the charleston in particular. The ladies loved him, and he had multiple relationships including an engagement he called off in 1911, but he never married. I think my favorite odd bit though is according to a biographer, among the women of Amsterdam, Mondrian “developed a reputation for interesting, prolonged kisses, sometimes lasting for more than half an hour.” but back on point, he loved dancing and he loved music. While he was in Paris, he was particularly fond of the black American musicians that passed through including greats like Louis Armstrong. Mondrian talked about how the pianist accompanying Armstrong “allowed the bass line played with his left hand to fall out of sync, contrasting with the rhythmically varied ‘melody' played by his right hand” Mondrian was all about the rhythm.

In the great tradition of Jazz - that is, experiment and improvise - we're trying a new format on this episode of Same Difference. Don't worry, we're not changing the show now and forever, but we thought we'd branch out and try looking at a specific Jazz musician (rather than a Jazz song) this time. While Jazz musicians know the name Sidney Bechet quite well, his is not a name most people recognize. He was every bit as groundbreaking as Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington, yet he never got the "marquee value" that they did, so today AJ and Johnny take a look at the life of Sidney Bechet, and try to figure out why he's not a household name. You'll hear plenty of music from Sidney, as well as interviews with musicians from the Sun Valley Jazz Festival, who offered up their knowledge and understanding of this overlooked musical genius. And while we're trying out new concepts, we invite you to check out "Something Came From Baltimore", a Jazz podcast from our new friend Thomas Gouker. While our podcast, "Same Difference", delves into the history of Jazz, Thomas's podcast focuses on what's currently happening in Jazz, so the two compliment each other well.

Entre 1939 y 1945 el mundo se estremeció con los terribles ecos de la segunda Guerra Mundial. La música, mientras crecía como lenguaje universal, fue una tabla salvadora entre tanta barbarie. Probablemente, entre lo más escuchado por aquellos años, sobresalió el swing, hijo natural del jazz. Comenzamos con el influyente estilo del trombonista, arreglista y líder de orquesta Glenn Miller, uno de los alquimistas del sonido big band, desaparecido en un vuelo militar el 15 de diciembre de 1944.  Miguel Matamoros, el coloso del son oriental, alguna vez se dejó seducir por sus encantos. Su bolero "Conciencia", notablemente influenciado por el swing, es una muestra de lo que ya acontecía por estas tierras fruto de esa interacción.   Nuevas posibilidades melódicas y armónicas permitieron al genio de Matanzas Pérez Prado, durante la primera mitad de los 40, experimentar con sus arreglos en los atriles de la orquesta "Casino de la Playa". En las filas de esta importante jazz band criolla contó con un cantante precursor para desarrollar sus creaciones: Orlando Guerra "Cascarita". Mambo y swing en los directos del estelar "Show Pinilla ". La señal de la radio independiente cubana de 1945 nos permite regresar nuevamente a los estudios de la CMQ Radio, de Monte y Prado. "El club del swing" fue otro show en directo donde las bandas de Mario Romeu, Alfredo Brito y Felix Guerrero, indistintamente, acompañaron a jóvenes talentos defensores de ese estilo.  A través de discos, emisiones radiales, partituras, y cientos de producciones fílmicas, la electrizante era tuvo en las big bands un sound track bien original Artie Shaw, Woody Herman, los hermanos Dorsey con su cantante Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, el gran Cab Calloway, Chick Webb, Benny Goodman, y Glenn Miller con el cuarteto vocal "The Modernaires", fueron sólo algunas de las figuras del potente movimiento musical. En Pinar del Río un niño negro solía deleitarse escuchando en un fonógrafo aquellas grabaciones en discos de pasta de 78 revoluciones por minuto. El Niño Rivera fue armando en su cabeza todo un mundo armónico que, a finales de los años 40, volcó en sus arreglos para el Conjunto Casino cuando fue reclutado por su director Roberto Espí como arreglista principal del popular conjunto. Fue el "Casino", probablemente, el grupo sonero más progresivo de ese tiempo en la Isla. Los 40 fueron años de sucesos importantes en lo musical. Las charangas salieron adelante gracias al danzón de nuevo ritmo de los hermanos López.  Al swing se sumaba entonces otra criatura: el Bebop. Celia Cruz y Beny Moré, en directo y en todo su esplendor: "Fiebre de Bebop" y "Devuélveme el coco". En 1947, cuando los pasos de Chano Pozo y Dizzy coincidieron, al percusionista cubano no le era nada ajeno el swing. Su gran sentido del ritmo le permitió adaptarse a la banda del trompetista. Como antecedentes sus rumbas, guarachas y montunos con marcadísimo swing: "Ariñañara", "Blen Blen Blen", "Nagüe", "Pin Pin" y "Chévere", entre muchas otras. Tener "swing" cobró además un amplio significado: una actitud ante la vida marcada por cierto desenfado, una manera de vestir, de caminar, de bailar, y de desenvolverse en determinados círculos sociales. "Manteca" y "Algo bueno", dos piezas del binomio Pozo y Gillespie. Es ahora el Quinteto de Música Moderna de 1959 con Frank Emilio a la cabeza. Finalizaban los años 40 y un oxigenante movimiento de compositores combinaba mucho swing con otro elemento importante: el feeling. Entre las voces más notables, vinculadas a esa importante ola: Doris de la Torre y Pablo Milanés. Arsenio Rodríguez, legendario por su apego al afinque del son montuno más raigal, radicado en EEUU y en una ciudad multicultural como Nueva York, conectó aún más con sus ancestros congos abriendo su música también al swing. "Quindembo Hot". Miguelito Valdés despide este segmento con otra creación del percusionista, rumbero y compositor Luciano "Chano" Pozo."Si no tienes swing"

Elizabeth “Bessie” Smith was the youngest child of seven, born to Laura and William Smith in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Her father was a Baptist minister and day laborer and her mother a laundress. In 1900, William Smith died in a work accident and his wife and son Bud passed away in 1906. The six remaining Smith children, including Bessie, were orphaned and left to be raised by an aunt. Living in poverty, Smith began singing as a street performer on Ninth Street, Chattanooga's center of music and dance, with her guitar-playing brother Andrew. The first published reference of a performance by Smith—when she was only 14 years old—was in the May 8, 1909, issue of the Indianapolis newspaper The Freedman. According to the review of her performance at Atlanta's 81 Theater, Smith captivated her audience through her contralto voice.Smith refined her vocal style on the Black vaudeville stage. Her brother Clarence was a comedian and dancer in the Moses Stokes Traveling Show. Bessie was hired onto the circuit but shortly after left to join the Mother of the Blues, Ma Rainey, and the Rabbit Foot Minstrels. Smith became a mentee of Ma Rainey, learning how to command an audience and navigate the music business. By the time she was 24 years old, Smith had her own solo acts and was performing throughout the South and East Coast. In 1923, Smith signed with Columbia Records. Her first recording was “Down-hearted Blues,” written by blues singer Alberta Hunter and pianist Lovie Austin. The 1923 song was a major hit and it launched Smith into the national spotlight. Beyond blues, Smith played and recorded with jazz musicians, including Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet. Her incredible talent led her to become the highest paid Black entertainer of her time.The Great Depression cut Smith's recording career short, and her last recording was in 1933. Still, Smith performed across the country. In 1937, enroute to Chattanooga, Smith suffered fatal injuries in a car accident in Mississippi. Smith's funeral was held in Philadelphia, where she had been living since 1923, and was attended by more than 5,000 people.Throughout her career, Smith was unapologetically herself. She drank and was open about her romantic relationships with both men and women. Smith was married to Jack Gee from 1923 to 1929. Gee was unable to adjust to the show business life nor Smith's bisexuality. Their marriage ended in 1929 when Smith learned about an affair between Gee and singer Gertrude Saunders. Smith incorporated the hardships of being Black working class in her lyrics by singing about poverty, racism, and sexism on top of singing about love and female sexuality. While some, such as the Black Swan Records, labeled her as “rough,” Smith's ability to channel her personality and life experience into her voice is what made her stand out.From https://nmaahc.si.edu/lgbtq/bessie-smith. For more information about Bessie Smith:“Reckless Blues”: https://genius.com/Bessie-smith-reckless-blues-lyrics“Bessie Smith & Louis Armstrong - Reckless Blues, 1925”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cd4_3yJD-Ds“Forebears: Bessie Smith, The Empress of The Blues”: https://www.npr.org/2018/01/05/575422226/forebears-bessie-smith-the-empress-of-the-blues“Life Story: Bessie Smith”: https://wams.nyhistory.org/confidence-and-crises/jazz-age/bessie-smith/“How Bessie Smith Influenced A Century Of Popular Music”: https://www.npr.org/2019/08/05/747738120/how-bessie-smith-influenced-a-century-of-popular-music

It's New Orleans: Out to Lunch

In New Orleans, we're big on tradition. We believe that doing things the same way they've been done for generations keeps us connected to our history and maintains the grandness of the city that our forebears created. But there's a difference between tradition and habit. That difference can be knowledge.  For example, in the 1950's if you, your parents, and grandparents all smoked cigarettes, you might have called yourselves “a traditional tobacco family.” Now that we know smoking is the cause of seriously life-limiting medical conditions, you'd be more apt to describe that family as having a bad smoking habit. Which brings us to Mardi Gras. Wait, what? If you've lived in New Orleans for any time and you go to Mardi Gras parades, you've probably caught or thrown hundreds, if not thousands, of Mardi Gras beads. Mostly manufactured in China, these plastic beads are allegedly made from unregulated petroleum products and reportedly contain unhealthful levels of lead, arsenic, and other chemicals you don't want your kids anywhere near. Are Mardi Gras Beads as bad for you as cigarettes?! We put that question to Brett Davis. And we're betting you can guess the answer. Brett is Director of an organization called Grounds Krewe. Grounds Krewe's mission is to make New Orleans events  sustainable by diminishing waste and instituting recycling wherever possible. When it comes to Mardi Gras, Grounds Krewe's aim is to get us to replace plastic beads - and other toxic throws - with sustainable throws that are local, healthful, and as affordable as the ubiquitous, Chinese, plastic beads. Now let's move on to another mainstay of the New Orleans economy in which there's a blurred line between tradition and habit: the music business. The traditional way the music business is structured in New Orleans tends to financially benefit purveyors of alcohol more than the creators and performers of music. That's because we have a very robust live music culture that's centered mostly in bars. Unlike other music-centric cities - like Nashville and Austin - we don't have a similarly robust allied music economy. If you're a New Orleanian and you want a high-level career as a music business attorney, agent, manager, song writer or recording artist, you're in the same position locals in other businesses were in till recently. That is, you have to leave New Orleans. Think about that for a moment. You live in a city people come to specifically to hear music. But to be truly successful in the music business you have to leave. This tradition has been going on for some time. Louis Armstrong left New Orleans to make it. So did Lil Wayne. Winton Marsalis. Jon Batiste. Evan Christopher. Harry Connick Jr. Davell Crawford. Nicholas Payton. No Limit Records left. Cash Money Records left. Daniel Lanois, Lenny Kravitz, Trent Reznor, and Ray Davies from The Kinks all moved their music operations here, then left. You could argue that Winton Marsalis had to leave here for his prestigious job as Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, and Jon Batiste had to leave here to be music director on The Tonight Show. But that's the whole point. We're the birthplace of jazz but we don't have a jazz institute. And we don't have the infrastructure a national TV show needs to originate from here. At what point do we go from regarding this talent-emigration as a tradition, to calling it a habit - and do something about breaking it? Best-selling songwriter Jim McCormick knows as much as anybody about finding an answer to this question. Jim is a New Orleans native who left. He went to Nashville for 15 years. Then he came back. Jim has written a string of hit songs for artists like Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, Kelly Clarkson, Brantley Gilbert, and many more. He's been nominated for a Grammy 5 times. He's had 3 songs hit number one on the Billboard country chart. And he's done much of that while living in Orleans parish. It's easy to keep doing things the way we've always done them. It feels good to label ourselves as the home of Mardi Gras, because Mardi Gras is amazing - if it doesn't bring a smile to your face probably nothing will. And we're justifiably proud of New Orleans being a place where you can hear enormously talented musicians all around town, every night.  None of this has to stop. But it can change. What's already good can be better. And what are now just hopes, dreams and visions can become reality. We can have a healthy Mardi Gras that's safe for everybody. And we can have a robust music business that makes money for musicians and everybody else in the chain of music marketing. But none of that is going to magically just happen. For things to change it takes people like Brett and Jim, giving us the benefit of their knowledge, experience, and passion for the city of New Orleans. Out to Lunch is recorded live over lunch at NOLA Pizza in the NOLA Brewing Taproom.

LOUIS ARMSTRONG'S BLACK & BLUES offers an intimate and revealing look at the world-changing musician, presented through a lens of archival footage and never-before-heard home recordings and personal conversations. This definitive documentary, directed by Sacha Jenkins, honors Armstrong's legacy as a founding father of jazz, one of the first internationally known and beloved stars, and a cultural ambassador of the United States. LOUIS ARMSTRONG'S BLACK & BLUES shows how Armstrong's own life spans the shift from the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement, and how he became a lightning rod figure in that turbulent era. LOUIS ARMSTRONG'S BLACK & BLUES is a project of Imagine Documentaries and Polygram Entertainment with a production team that includes Sara Bernstein, Justin Wilkes, Michele Anthony, Brian Grazer, and Ron Howard. Director and producer Sacha Jenkins joins us for a conversation on the profound impact that Louis Armstrong has had on American music, specifically jazz, his multi-hyphenated career as a singer, trumpeter, actor, bandleader, artist, ambassador of American culture, his life-long partnership with his wife, Lil, and how important it was for Jenkins to re-set the perception of this humble man with a thorough recounting of his personal, professional and musical life.

Erik Childress & Steve Prokopy play a little catch-up this week on some films that have been playing in limited release. One film they suggest you don't catch up on from Sundance (Call Jane) still gives rise to another that you absolutely should. Among the rest Steve looks at a new documentary on the famous trumpeter (Louis Armstrong's Black & Blues) and the focus on the mother of an infamously murdered child in Chicago (Till). On Netflix they look at Henry Selick's stop-motion underworld and his team-up with Key & Peele as Wendell & Wild and another grueling adaptation of a twice-made WWI novel (All Quiet On The Western Front). Finally they discuss two of the best films of the year with Martin McDonagh's reunion with Colin Farrell & Brendan Gleeson (The Banshees of Inisherin) and Todd Field's return to directing with Cate Blanchett (Tár)   0:00 - Intro 1:37 - Call Jane 13:41 - Till 23:19 - Wendell & Wild 34:54 - Louis Armstrong's Black & Blues 40:45 - All Quiet on the Western Front 56:50 - The Banshees of Inisherin 1:11:57 – Tár 1:30:42 - Outro

Day 13 “We are each other's harvest; we are each other's business; we are each other's magnitude and bond.” - Gwendolyn Brooks The Address: Rosenwald Apartments, 4648 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL, Bronzeville The Story: They came fleeing the terrors of Jim Crow. They came in search of freedom. Still tethered to their southern roots and values, they brought an electrifying energy that would give rise to Black Arts movements, create gospel, and establish a Black mecca known as Bronzeville, the only neighborhood in the country that could rival Harlem as the cultural center of African America. Home to the greats - Gwendolyn Brooks, Richard Wright, Louis Armstrong, Bessie Coleman, Ida B. Wells, and many more. We will start today's exploration of Bronzeville on S. Michigan Ave at the storied Rosenwald Apartments, once managed by Quincy Jones' mother. From here, we will take a stroll down “The Stroll”, a section of State Street that was the place to see and be seen, and the heartbeat of Black Chicago. Along the way we will talk about how the people in this community influenced and changed the world, from politics to social activism.

From the Jazz Age to Citizen ArtistMusic has been at the forefront of social movements in America. Where politicians dared not go, music often led the way. Its rhythms, melodies and lyrics moving past peoples' eyes and into their hearts. With their eyes people can see race, gender, and even social class. With the sound of music, as the lyric implies, the hills come alive.Jazz is a particularly American artform that suffered from the particularly American social ills born from racism. Even though black artists played to white audiences in grand hotel ballrooms in the North and the South, they were not allowed to stay in the very hotels where they played. Duke Ellington may have reigned as one of the Kings of Jazz, but he couldn't sit at the bar of the Cotton Club that he made famous. Black Jazz artists like all black musicians in the first half of the 20th Century, had their songs often stolen by white artists who got the glory, the recognition, and the money. Artists like Louis Armstrong, Nina Simone, and Billie Holiday risked losing their careers, their lives, and their freedom over the social stances they took to support Civil Rights and Human Rights. Today, that lineage of the music has found its way into the creative and artistic life of Timo Vollbrecht. From his roots in Lower Saxony Berlin in Germany (where the music, the improvisations and the saxophone called to him) to New York City (where he expanded his education and pedagogy) to the stages of the world (where he has performed for audiences of 1 to 1,000), Timo is reimagining the place for a citizen artist in a post-Jazz centric world with his tenor saxophone. A music scene once ruled by Jazz and Bebop and Lindy Hoppers, is now the domain of rappers, boy bands, and YouTube stars, but there is still a considerable space for Jazz to make the connections it was famous for a century ago – where the other stops being the other but becomes a part of you. Timo has curated an open music night in Ramallah, where his band teamed up with Palestinian musicians. He organized student concerts at the Hassenfeld Children's Hospital in New York and performed interactive concerts at senior citizen residences and refugee homes. Today, he is bringing his saxophone and considerable musical experience and education to the students at Brown University as the Director of Jazz Studies. As Timo succinctly says, “I want to make music that is for people, that moves people, that might inspire people. You can use it also for social justice, activism, but not just that. The question is how do you use your music? It's the understanding that I'm not just a musician. I am a citizen. And I have responsibilities as a citizen.”
