DISCOGRAFIE

HOME

       

Musicista completo, grande specialista del contrabbasso ma anche, all'occorrenza, valido pianista, soprattutto grande band leader, ha caratterizzato la stagione d'oro nella quale il jazz era l'accompagnamento musicale della nuova cultura, non importa se bianca e nera. In grado di organizzare incursioni del jazz nei territori della musica "colta", nell'impegno politico, soprattutto in senso antirazzista (la celebre invettiva "Fables Of Faubus", "dedicata" al governatore dell'Alabama). Cos come evasioni e momenti improntati al puro divertimento, massimo esempio del quale il disco Tijuana Moods, ispirato alla fuga nelle follie della citt di confine messicana, condotta assieme al suo fido batterista di una vita, Dannie Richmond. Di carattere intemperante e umorale, stato tutt'altro che un saggio amministratore del suo talento, ma ciononostante ha lasciato un ricordo indelebile della sua arte, e una traccia importante anche nel mondo del rock, dove stato uno dei musicisti pi amati, per esempio dai Pentangle che ripresero in modo ottimo il suo capolavoro Good Bye Pork Pie Hat, o da Joni Mitchell, che dedic al musicista un intero album, omonimo.
