Jazz : 18/08/2004 - 21/03/2017, Cabriès, France, March 2017.

Rest in Peace dear Jazz. We will miss you.

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.

"Nascente" at 1st Jazz festival, St Nom la Bretêche, France, september 2016

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

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.

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."

Festival de Jazz de Terrassa 2007

A moment ago we were all asleep in the chair

i nuovi coradia "jazz" di Trenitalia hanno cominciato da poco il servizio sulla linea Sfm6 Torino-Asti, in foto una corsa prova sulla medesima tratta in transito nella fermata di Pessione.

These guys played some great jazz, including Charlie Parker tunes, one by Miles and one by Herbie Hancock, at our Junior Citizens Awards Dinner (for regular, everyday High Schoolers, doin' great things). I have their names but couldn't find them at this moment. - The Maze, Herbie Hancock (released in 1962 when Herbie was 21 or 22). Freddie Hubbard, Cornet, Dexter Gordon, Tenor, Butch Warren, Bass, Billy Higgins, Drums.


Challenge #52, The Letter "Q", called by Divebob.


The "Jazz Quartet," Piano Man (left) High School Junior, Alto Man (with horn) High School Senior, Drummer Man (with sticks) High School Junior, and Bass Player (with Bass) High School Sophomore. You can see and track the level of growth, maturity, the increasing preparation and self-confidence in those few short years.


Our parents couldn't really see this in us, as they were too close. But our teachers, all of those wonderful teachers; they could. They did. And, of course, I can see the faces of my high school buds in these.


These cats could swing. Come to think of it, I get to meet a lot of great Young Men and Women of America in my work. I covered the event as the Photog.


What will become of them? What will they become? What do they need from us? What will we need from them?

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.

Jazz + 1. Originally from Texas, Jazz now lives in New York.

San Jose, CA


This was in downtown San Jose the weekend before Christmas. It was completely packed with people. I thought it was gorgeous with all the decorations out and Christmas spirit in high gear. I wish Houston had something like this...
