The 2003 University of Michigan Jazz Festival

Educational Activities (8am – 3pm)
Feature Concert #1 (4pm) with...

Count Basie Orchestra

Ed Shaughnessy

Michigan High Student to perform with the Count Basie Orchestra 

Feature Concert #2 (8pm) with... 

Dave Holland Quintet 

Dave Holland New York Big Band
It is a pleasure to inform you of the 2003 University of Michigan Jazz Festival. Our featured guest artists are the incomparable Count Basie Orchestra, the Dave Holland Quintet and New York Big Band, master drummer Ed Shaughnessy and jazz vocalist Sunny Wilkinson. For over 75 years the Count Basie Orchestra has played to audiences all over the world. It returns to Ann Arbor with its explosive sound for a concert set and selected instrumental/vocal clinics. Education remains the fundamental core of our Festival. Our adjudicators: Greg Carroll, Director of Education for IAJE; Dr. David Baker, President of the IAJE and Dr. Shelly Berg, Director of Jazz studies at the University of Southern California.. This highly decorated team is among the most experienced jazz educators in the world. Clinics from University of Michigan, School of Music faculty members include Ed Sarath on Contemplative Improvisation; Donald Walden’s improvisation session will again explore saxophone jazz education. Back by popular demand will be the UM Jazz Trombone Choir. A new clinic from jazz trombonist Robin Eubanks will bring input from a truly wonderful musician. Ed Shaughnessy’s “Art of Big Band Drumming” clinic is a “must see” session for every big band drummer. Carnegie Hall Jazz Band baritone saxophonist Gary Smulyan has a session called “Improvisation for the Real Advanced Player” that is created to give the collegiate and advanced high school student a unique perspective.  This year our Festival celebrates the legacy of American song stylist Ella Fitzgerald. To honor this great jazz artist, Governor-elect Jennifer Granholm has received a request to proclaim the date as “Ella Fitzgerald Day” throughout the State of Michigan. Vocalist Sunny Wilkinson will honor the Fitzgerald legacy with a master class and performance of a new arrangement of Ella’s “A Tisket, A Tasket” with the University of Michigan Jazz Ensemble. This year the Festival will contain two “grand finales” of extraordinary musical presentation. The first will be Ed Shaughnessy with the University of Michigan Jazz Ensemble and the Count Basie Orchestra performing together on a double big band arrangement of Count Basie’s “One O’clock Jump.”  The second finale is a result of a new partnership with the University Musical Society, which is sponsoring the Dave Holland Quintet and New York Big Band. This partnership is one that adds great diversity to our event. Though both feature concerts are great, nothing is as electric as hearing the high school student that is selected to perform with the Count Basie Orchestra. If your students were among the 764 attending last year, they certainly remember this.  One very special feature is the recording of the Festival by the National Public Radio program, “JazzSet with Dee Dee Bridgewater”. The producers of JazzSet will record selected events and broadcast them nationwide on nearly 150 NPR stations, reaching nearly 200,000 people.  This is the busiest Festival I’ve ever created. Good musicians making good music and sharing ideas. All this takes place at the University of Michigan, School of Music. Special discounts have been arranged for registered jazz bands. The ticket pricing includes discounts available only for registered schools. I invite you to join us for any or all of the Festival. If you have any questions, please call me at (734) 615-4104 or e-mail umjazzfest@umich.edu Musically, Dennis E. Wilson Festival Executive Director

Haitian Roots and Soulful Jazz Night
The Old Town School of Folk Music and The South Shore Cultural Center present
VOICES OF A NEW BLACK MILLENNIUM
A weekly showcase of music, dance, and spoken word featuring the best local and touring talent
**********************************************
Featured Artists This Week
**********************************************
Wednesday, February 19 at 6:30pm Haitian Roots and Soulful Jazz Night
The series kicks-off with rara ("roots") music and dance from Haiti with two groups Tamboula (Chicago-based) and Asakivle (visiting from Haiti)
and a blend of soul and jazz in a collaboration between poet/soul singer Ugochi Nwaogwugwu and renowned Chicago jazz trumpeter Malachi Thompson.
**********************************************
About the Series: Follow the Thread!
**********************************************
This new edition of Voices of a New Black Millennium, a weekly series, will focus on the artistic achievements of Black cultures from around the world,
as they exist in our own community. This series gives a "voice" to music and dance that you may not hear on the radio or see on television,
and yet it lays at the heart of our cultural legacy. We hope to show, by presenting you with distinct music and dance from around the African Diaspora,
that there is a thread that runs though them all, linking them to a shared heritage.  This series is brought to you through a collaborative effort
between the Old Town School of Folk Music and the Chicago Park District's South Shore Cultural Center. It is curated by Marvin Tate, Delano Androzzo,
and Juan Díes. We hope you enjoy it!
**********************************************
Liner Notes
**********************************************
Haiti was the first Black republic in the New World. African slaves revolted against French colonists in 1794 and gained their independence in 1804.
Haitian roots music has strong ties to Africa and served as the original influence on Cuban music, which in turn is the basis of much Latin American
dance music and jazz. Several artists have attempted a return to the roots of jazz by approaching African and Cuban music. This program will inspire
you to explore the Haitian roots of Black culture in the New World.
**********************************************
Featured Artists
**********************************************
TAMBOULA
Tamboula is a Chicago-based, modern dance company rooted in Haitian folk and dances and rhythms but also versed in Dunham, ballet, jazz, tap
and modern styles. Daniel Desir, artistic director of Tamboula, is a native of Haiti and an accomplished choreographer and dancer. His journey
through dance started on the island of Haiti where he mastered Haitian folk dance and toured with the Ballet Folklorique D'Haiti. Early on, he
developed an interest in combining folk and Afro-contemporary modern dance. Eventually, he moved to Chicago and danced with the Najwa
Dance Corps and the West Indian Folk Dance Company before forming his own company. In the Haitian native language of Creole "tambou"
means drum and "la" means there. Thus, Tamboula literally means "drum is there." This unique blend of styles that characterizes Tamboula
forms an Afro-contemporary expression that searches through the imagination, through beauty and creativity.
ASAKIVLE
This band came together in 1994 to create an outlet for the traditional rhythms of Haiti, expressed in drum, song and dance, and to explore the
Haitian raisin ("roots") sound. Asakivle is a Kreyol (Creole) word that means "those who would like to participate or join in. " Some of the members
live in Haiti while the rest reside in Miami and Chicago. This challenging situation required the Miami musicians to travel to Haiti for extended periods
of rehearsals, but it eventually became a foundation for strength and growth for the band. The town of Gonaives, known for its deep voudou heritage,
provided the perfect atmosphere for the band to focus on the raisin rhythms. Many of the elders of this community offered their guidance and their
knowledge. The sound is mesmerizing and celebratory, always finding joy even amidst the challenging political and economic atmosphere in Haiti.
Asakivle is on tour and will join Tamboula during their visit in Chicago.
UGOCHI NWAOGWUGWU
A former rapper, turned poet, gone singer Ugochi Nwaogwugwu, of Nigerian descent, returns to Voices of a New Black Millennium. She presents a
unique brand of storytelling and songwriting that she refers to as "vocal harmonics." She describes her style as "African funk with a side of soul
marinated jazz and house, hold the acid." Ugochi has been featured on WTTW-PBS Ch11 Artbeat and Wild Chicago. She was a finalist in the
HBO/Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam 2001 Competition and is now a semi-finalist in Star Search 2003. Says Ugochi-"Life inspires me to create
honest music. Music inspires me to create an honest life and live it to the fullest with my creation." Recently, he wrote a song, sung by R&B star
Kelis, for the Red Hot and Riot Compilation in honor of the late Fela Ransome Kuti and global AIDS awareness. Currently, she is working on a
CD entitled African Butafly expected to be released in 2003.
MALACHI THOMPSON
Chicago trumpeter Malachi Thompson joined the AACM in 1967 at the age of 17, absorbing the music of Muhal Richard Abrams, Henry Threadgill
and Lester Bowie. Since joining Delmark Records in 1989, he has been voted a "Talent Deserving Wider Recognition" in the 1993 and 1994 Down
Beat International Critics Poll and was voted Chicago Tribune Man of the Year in 1996. He writes a historical jazz commentary column called
"State of the Art" and performs with several groups including the huge jazz brass collective Africa Brass, the Freebop Band, and Triad,
which he calls his "experimental performance art group." Recent releases include Talking Horns (Delmark Records), Rising Daystar (Delmark),
47th Street (Delmark), is the soundtrack for Charles Smith's play
The Sutherland, which is a near-biography of Thompson.

*SVANOE QUINTET
Though he works in the relatively small and isolated jazz community of Madison, Wisconsin, reedist Anders Svanoe has nonetheless managed to find several like-minded musicians--
such as the quartet Tomato Box, which originally included Svanoe--with whom to develop his mainstream-to-jet-stream approach to improvisation. He's even found a bona fide mentor--
none other than Roscoe Mitchell, a cofounder of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, who now lives in the Madison area and regularly works out with Svanoe
on everything from Bach etudes to postfreedom duets. (In the liner notes to Svanoe's debut disc, Lines and Spaces--released by the Chicago label Solitaire--Mitchell says,
"This is the kind of people I want to be associated with. . . people who can find their own source, within themselves, and create from there. . . . He's an original, definitely.")
Svanoe shares the combination of expertise and experimentation that marked the AACM's first wave in the mid-60s; like AACM reedist Douglas Ewart, a past student of Mitchell's,
he's even turned to inventing his own instruments. His plungerhoseaphone--built from garden hoses and the rubber cups of bathroom plungers, as well as other found objects--
looks like what might have happened had Rube Goldberg designed horns for Selmer. It takes up a lot of space on the bandstand, but its kinky charm doesn't overshadow the more
traditional virtues of Svanoe's playing: In this engaging quintet, which I heard in its Chicago debut just two months ago, he refuses to hog the spotlight, preferring solos that propel
and enhance the steadily evolving compositions. His lines have an elastic, swingy interplay with the busy patterns of new-music guitarist Phil Mosberg, and his alto and baritone both
shine in tandem with the ballsy blare of Phil Zell's trumpet; drummer Randy Kuehn and bassist Henry Boehm, who has worked with Svanoe in at least two other bands, round out the lineup.

On Saturday, February 22 from 7 to 9 PM, "Blues Edition" will feature many Delmark blues artists,
past and present, including Magic Sam, Otis Rush, "Sleepy John" Estes, Lurrie Bell, Lonnie Brooks,
Sunnyland Slim, Junior Wells, Johnny B. Moore, Jimmy Johnson, Carey Bell and more.
Delmark Records, one of the oldest independent labels still owned and operated by its founder,
began when Bob Koester recorded a local traditional jazz band, the Windy City Six,
on September 19, 1953 while a student at St. Louis University in Missouri.
"They deserved to be recorded," says Koester.
Fifty years later, Koester still operates under the same philosophy of giving deserving artists
a chance to record their music.

Delmark Records' catalog reads like a "who's who" in the history of blues and jazz music.
"Essential" recordings run abound in Delmark's catalog: Junior Wells' Hoodoo Man Blues,
Magic Sam's West Side Soul, Otis Rush's Cold Day In Hell, Coleman Hawkins' Rainbow Mist,
Anthony Braxton's For Alto, Roscoe Mitchell's Sound, and the first recordings by the influential
Chicago avant-garde jazz group, AACM.

To commemorate it's 50th Anniversary, Delmark Records will release a pair of two-CD sets
and a box set on April 22, 2003. The blues and jazz double-disc albums will feature previously
unissued material and highlight Delmark's 300-plus-title catalog. The box set, containing the two
double-discs, will contain a bonus DVD of recording sessions at Delmark's Riverside Studios.
