0:11 AM Bobby Timmons “Joy Ride” — This here is Bobby Timmons

  • BIRTHDAY Wednesday, December 19 Bobby Timmons [Piano] 12/19/1935 100 Pianist Philadelphia, PA 1974

  • “Pianist Bobby Timmons by early 1960 had already had successful stints with Art Blakey (where he contributed "Moanin'") and Canonball Adderley (writing "This Here" and "Date Dere"). For his first recording as a leader, Timmons (whose "funky" style was beginning to become very influential) performs those three hits along with his own "Joy Ride" and five standards in a trio with bassist Sam Jones and drummer Jimmy Cobb. Always more than just a soul-jazz pianist, Timmons (who effectively takes "Lush Life" unaccompanied) became a bit stereotyped later in his career but at this early stage was at the peak of his creativity. Essential music.” [Bobby Timmons Trio, This Here Is Bobby Timmons, AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow]

1:00 AM Bob Brookmeyer New Art Orchestra Feat. Scott Robinson “Celebration Remembering” — New Works

  • BIRTHDAY Wednesday, December 19 - Bob Brookmeyer [Arranger] [Trombone] 12/19/1929 100 Trombonist/Arranger Kansas City, MO 2011

  • “This stunning release features the recording debut of Bob Brookmeyer's New Art Orchestra, made up mostly of young Europeans recruited by the valve trombonist while touring the Continent. The four-part suite "Celebration" was originally written as a feature for the late baritone sax great Gerry Mulligan for a special concert in 1994, two years before his death. Scott Robinson fills Mulligan's role admirably on this initial recording of this extended work, and Brookmeyer's incredible voicings within the haunting ballad movement "Remembering" are also worth noting. The tracks following the suite are a diverse lot, but all of them merit strong praise. The leader's solo on the closer, "Boom Boom," demonstrates that his playing is as exciting as ever. Highly recommended!” [Bob Brookmeyer, New Works Celebration, AllMusic Review by Ken Dryden]

  • “Bob Brookmeyer was long considered one of the top valve trombonists in jazz and a very advanced arranger whose writing was influenced by modern classical music. He started out as a pianist in dance bands but played valve trombone with Stan Getz (1953). “ [Bob Brookmeyer, Artist Biography by Scott Yanow]

1:25 AM Steve Lacy “A Merrier Christmas” — A Merry Jazzmas

  • HOLIDAY MUSIC “A Merrier Christmas” Sheet Music by Thelonious Monk: “"A Merrier Christmas" was a composition that Thelonious Monk wrote for his family, and he never recorded it. It was later recorded by Monk's son, and also by Dianne Reeves Music and Benny Green, but Monk himself decided to keep the piece private during his lifetime. According to the recollections of Monk's son, the piece was written in the early 1960s.”

1:30 AM The Mission Bay High School Preservationists “Caravan” — Louisiana Fairytale

  • ON THIS DAY Wednesday, December 19 - The first recording of "Caravan" by Barney Bigard [Wikipedia] was cut in Los Angeles in 1936 for Variety records.

  • “an American jazz clarinetist known for his 15-year tenure with Duke Ellington. He also played tenor saxophone.”

  • “The first version of the song "Caravan" (composed by Juan Tizol and later rearranged by Duke Ellington) was recorded in Hollywood, 18 December 1936, and performed as an instrumental by Barney Bigard and His Jazzopators. Two takes were recorded and were issued, although L-0373-2 is by far the more commonly found take. The band members were Cootie Williams (trumpet), Juan Tizol (trombone), Barney Bigard (clarinet), Harry Carney (baritone sax), Duke Ellington (piano), Billy Taylor (bass), and Sonny Greer (drums). All of the players were members of the Duke Ellington Orchestra, which was often drawn upon to record small-group sides. Even though Ellington was present at the recording date, the session leader was Bigard.”
