I think this will work. We’ll see, won’t we? It’s going to be over 100 degrees HOT in the shade here today. Time to barb-q on the car roof I think. If you’re somewhere cool, enjoy it. If you’re not, be safe. Time to chill.

The Blues Broads – Angela Strehli, Dorothy Morrison, Annie Sampson, Tracy Nelson – are featured in the July 2013 issue of Jazz Inside Magazine (print and digital). This expanded 80-page issue of Jazz Inside Magazine also features comprehensive interviews with Jimmy Heath, Albert “Tootie” Heath, Phil Woods, saxophonist Brian Landrus, James Carter, Chris Potter, and more. Vocalist/percussionist Eric Frazier talks about the Fort Greene Jazz Festival in Brooklyn. This issue also includes the Jazz Birthday Gallery, an expanded CD Review section, and comprehensive calendar of hundreds of clubs, concert and event listings.
In the interview with drummer “Tootie” Heath, he discusses his early experiences playing with Thelonious Monk in Philadelphia.
“What I learned about Thelonious was that you needed to have a baroness as a friend, who owned a Rolls Royce, and who would bring you to work every night. And, then, when you got there, you could sit out in the car until it was time to hit … The Baroness would drive him to Philadelphia from New York. They would sit out in front of the club smoking cigarettes, doing whatever they did until it was time to hit. Then he would come in with his hat and coat on. He never would take his hat or coat off. He just sat down started playing. Jimmy Bond and I had to figure out what it was he was playing – and Jimmy had to figure out what key he was in, and try to play along with him.” In the interview by Ken Weiss, saxophonist Phil Woods shares an array of his many experiences during his 60 year career – which includes performances and recordings with a who’s who of jazz including Quincy Jones, Benny Goodman, Eric Dolphy, Charlie Parker, Clark Terry and Many others.
Woods confirms his aptitude to get right to the core: “One writer said, ‘Woods has two stories he always tells about Charlie Parker.’ And I said to myself – ‘I wonder if this guy had hung out with Shakespeare, wouldn’t he want to share that? Isn’t that a big deal?’ The stories demonstrate the generosity of Bird…”
Woods also reveals his confidence as well as his humility. He commented: “I wasn’t sure that I was equipped to be a good jazz artist until that session with Charlie Parker, when he leaned over and said, ‘Sounds real good, Phil.’”
Vocalist Nora McCarthy contributed a feature entitled “Remembering Joshua Wolff.” Wollf was a New York-based pianist who accompanied numerous jazz vocalists over the past decade. Eric Frazier talks about producing the fourth annual Fort Greene Jazz Festival in Brooklyn, which will be presented in two parts – the first edition on July 27 and the second part in September.
