Big Bands 1


Jazz Orchestras [Package 1]



[Português] Com esta postagem, o blog Modus Vivendi dá início a uma sequencia de cinco pacotes de discos de orquestras de jazz contemporâneas. Seguindo o modelo utilizado pelo blog, cada disco será acompanhado de breves comentários, ilustrações e mapas para indicar onde estão sitiadas as orquestras ou a origem dos músicos que a denominam. Assim como todos os estilos de jazz que tem suas origens no jazz de Nova Orleans, no caso, as orquestras de jazz foram evoluídas em Nova Iorque e atingiram seu ápice comercial a partir dos anos de 1920 até a década de 1940 com a chamada Era do Swing. Daí para frente, esta forma musical jamais deixou a cena musical e com o passar dos anos as orquestras de jazz, ou Big Bands, cada vez mais foram se disseminando mundo a fora. Hoje, encontradas nos locais mais improváveis, muitas vezes nas clássicas formas do jazz Swing, mas muitas outras vezes inspiradas pela musicalidade local ou pelos olhares de novos compositores e arranjadores.

Nettai Tropical Jazz Big Band - 1999 - September 




[PortuguêsA orquestra Nettai Tropical Jazz Big Band, baseada em Tóquio, foi criada em 1995 por iniciativa do percussionista Carlos Kanno com o intuito de montar um grupo dedicado a música latina, em especial ao jazz afro-cubano. Para formar esse conjunto convidou 18 excelentes e experientes músicos japoneses, todos artistas internacionais com carreiras individuais, com agendas em em estúdios ou acompanhando artistas internacionais. A dificuldade de manter estes músicos juntos era algo imaginado por Kanno, e o que iniciou como uma tentativa, de certa forma, despretensiosa se concretizou com o tempo. Em 2014 a Nettai atingiu o seu de 16° álbum, todos com uma sonoridade pulsante, embalo latino, precisão e surpreendente, quando se pensa em japonesa, latinidade musical. Além do nome de Kanno, destaques da orquestra são músicos conhecidos como o baterista Akira Jimbo, o arranjador e trompetista Shiro Sasaki, o trompetista Sho Okumura, o saxofonista Kazuhiko Kondo, o trombonista Taisei Aoki e todos os demais que podem ser conferidos na lista abaixo. O álbum "September" foi o segundo da orquestra, mas é um ótimo disco e por isso mereceu ser incluído o de 1999 nesta seleção, com um repertório interessante no embalo latino sobre temas musicais conhecidos como "September" de McKay, White & willis, o clássico tema cinematográfico "Mission Impossible" de Lalo Schifrin, o clássico jazz "Caravan" de Ellington, Mills & Tizol, e "Getaway" do famoso grupo funk-soul Eath, Wind & Fire.

The difficulty of maintaining these musicians together was something imagined by Kanno, and that's why began as an attempt, in a way, unpretentious materialized over time. In 2014 the Nettai reached its 16° album, all with a pulsing sound, Latin flavour, precision and surprising, when you think in Japaneses, a musical latinity.

The Tommy Igoe - 2014 - Groove Conspiracy



[Português] A big band Tommy Igoe Groove Conspiracy é uma proeminente orquestra norte americana locada em são Francisco, Califórnia. Orquestra liderada pelo baterista nova iorquino Tommy Igoe, como a maioria das orquestras lideradas por bateristas, a dinâmica, o andamento e a energia das músicas geralmente são intensas, e colocam no holofote o instrumento, proporcionando maior liberdade de criação aos bateristas. Apesar disto, Tommy Igoe não excede no instrumento e equilibra muito bem com a Groove Conspiracy o papel rítmico, de marcação e as improvisações. Este é um bom trabalho de orquestra contemporânea que alia grooves, arranjos e composições atuais com a linguagem clássica da orquestra de jazz. 

[English] The big band Tommy Igoe Groove Conspiracy is a prominent North American orchestra leased in San Francisco, California. Orchestra led by the New Yorker drummer Tommy Igoe, like most orchestras led by drummers, the dynamics, the tempo and the energy of the songs are usually intense, and put in spotlight the instrument, providing greater creative freedom to drummers. Nevertheless, Tommy Igoe does not exceed the instrument and balances nicely with the Groove Conspiracy the rhythmic role, marking and improvisations. This is a good work of contemporary orchestra that combines grooves, arrangements and compositions of current and classical languages of jazz orchestra.
