Hard bop is a subgenre of jazz that is an extension of bebop (or "bop") music. Journalists and record companies began using the term in the mid-1950s to describe a new current within jazz which incorporated influences from rhythm and blues, gospel music, and blues, especially in saxophone and piano playing.


David H. Rosenthal contends in his book Hard Bop that the genre is, to a large degree, the natural creation of a generation of African-American musicians who grew up at a time when bop and rhythm and blues were the dominant forms of black American music. 24 Prominent hard bop musicians included Horace Silver, Clifford Brown, Charles Mingus, Art Blakey, Cannonball Adderley, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and Tadd Dameron.


Hard bop is sometimes referred to as "funky hard bop." The "funky" label refers to the rollicking, rhythmic feeling associated with the style. The descriptor is also used to describe soul jazz, which is commonly associated with hard bop.According to Mark C. Gridley, soul jazz more specifically refers to music with "an earthy, bluesy melodic concept and... repetitive, dance-like rhythms.... Note that some listeners make no distinction between 'soul-jazz' and 'funky hard bop,' and many musicians don't consider 'soul-jazz' to be continuous with 'hard bop.'" The term "soul" suggests the church, and traditional gospel music elements such as "amen chords" (the plagal cadence) and triadic harmonies that seemed to suddenly appear in jazz during the era.

Cool jazz is a style of modern jazz music that arose in the United States after World War II. It is characterized by relaxed tempos and lighter tone, in contrast to the tense and complex bebop style. Cool jazz often employs formal arrangements and incorporates elements of classical music. Broadly, the genre refers to a number of post-war jazz styles employing a more subdued approach than that found in other contemporaneous jazz idioms. As Paul Tanner, Maurice Gerow, and David Megill suggest "the tonal sonorities of these conservative players could be compared to pastel colors, while the solos of [Dizzy] Gillespie and his followers could be compared to fiery red colors."


The term cool started being applied to this music around 1953, when Capitol Records released the album Classics in Jazz: Cool and Quiet. Mark C. Gridley, writing in the All Music Guide to Jazz, identifies four overlapping sub-categories of cool jazz:


1 "Soft variants of bebop," including the Miles Davis recordings that constitute Birth of the Cool; the complete works of the Modern Jazz Quartet; the output of Gerry Mulligan, especially his work with Chet Baker and Bob Brookmeyer; the music of Stan Kenton's sidemen during the late 1940s through the 1950s; and the works of George Shearing and Stan Getz.

2 The output of modern players who eschewed bebop in favor of advanced swing-era developments, including Lennie Tristano, Lee Konitz, and Warne Marsh; Dave Brubeck and Paul Desmond; and performers such as Jimmy Giuffre and Dave Pell who were influenced by Count Basie and Lester Young's small-group music.

3 Musicians from either of the previous categories who were active in California from the 1940s through the 1960s, developing what came to be known as West Coast jazz.

4 "Exploratory music with a subdued effect by Teddy Charles, Chico Hamilton, John LaPorta, and their colleagues during the 1950s."

Jazz shouldn't have any mandates. Jazz is not supposed to be something that's required to sound like jazz. For me, the word 'jazz' means, 'I dare you.'


Wayne Shorter


Miles Davis talking about Wayne Shorter:

"Wayne also brought in a kind of curiosity about working with musical rules. If they didn't work, then he broke them, but with musical sense; he understood that freedom in music was the ability to know the rules in order to bend them to your own satisfaction and taste."




geek behind the curtain: crazy week. lots of nervous energy.


not having much to distract myself with i've made tons of images in the past couple days. mostly using the new-and-improved free version of "dreamscope," but one of the vibrant and painterly experiments of this duck image made me think of clouds so i simply added clouds in a pseudo-double-exposure jazzy riff thing. there's no part of dreamscope left here but without that experimentation i probably never would have gotten to this idea.

Rest in Peace dear Jazz. We will miss you.

this one makes me think of a Bluenote jazz album cover

A journey.

Through musical notes

And long-lasting darkness.

Step after step, dreaming awake.

Searching inside,

Resting on the emotional thickness of music.


On the very threshold of oneself.

Aloneness in the crowd,

Silent togetherness.

The Jazz Estate is a great jazz club in Milwaukee. I haven't played there in quite a few years and it was a blast. The audience was amazing and the people working there are just awesome. Can't wait to go back. It was somewhat bittersweet because it reminded me that there really are no more jazz clubs in Chicago like this.

Romantic Jazz Club. Isn't this picture Heavenly? Smooth jazz playing from the old days. "my funny valentine" is playing. nice tune but words are kinda insulting...

the weeks are flying and we have survived 11 months of herding by Jazz.

Mi ricordo quando ero bambino (7 anni), era il 1974, che avevo imparato a stampare da solo le fotografie in bianco e nero dentro la camera oscura di mio padre, il fatto è che, semplicemente: “imitavo quello che faceva mio padre”, mi ricordo che l'unica foto rimasta da allora è leggermente più chiara, perché con la luce rossa tipica delle camere oscure, mi sembrava abbastanza contrastata che la scendevo dal bagno dello sviluppo al bagno del fissaggio prima del dovuto, prova, questa che in camera oscura ero proprio da solo senza mio padre.

È stata un'esperienza, molto importante per me, tanto da rimanere per sempre “innamorato” della “fotografia”.

Poi, lasciarmi da solo, io così piccolino, doveva essere stato un atto di fiducia grande, da parte di mio padre, tipico esempio “Montessoriano” (Maria Montessori).

Ben presto, eventi cambiarono il corso della mia famiglia di origine e non ci fu più modo di “coltivare” quello che avevo cominciato.

Perché parto dal lontano periodo della mia infanzia?

Oggi ho aperto alcuni file immagini della mia reflex digitale, contenevano delle immagini scattate venerdì (7 luglio 2017), durante una cena in un locale di Isola delle Femmine dove mio figlio Francesco ha suonato, mi ricordo che, ad un certo punto, mia figlia Sofia (8 anni) cominciò a scattare delle immagini, da sola completamente libera di muoversi per il locale mentre, con mia moglie, continuavo a rimanere nel tavolo con un orecchio alla musica e un occhio a mia figlia.

Accanto al nostro tavolo c'era una coppia, appassionata di musica jazz, che ascoltava rilassata la musica che si spandeva per il locale all'aperto.

Questa è la coppia ritratta nell'immagine e questa immagine l'ha scattata mia figlia, sono rimasto “pietrificato” solo da alcuni elementi dalla composizione al linguaggio (soggetto/sfondo) (fuoco/sfocato).

Le nuove generazioni sembrano alienate dal vuoto culturale del tempo, ma non è vero, l'importante è che noi “cosiddetti” grandi li accompagniamo per poi lasciarli andare dove li porta il loro cuore!
