Jazz Musician of the Day: Ike Quebec

All About Jazz is celebrating Ike Quebec's birthday today!

Ike Quebec: Blue & Sentimental - 1962

Read "Ike Quebec: Blue & Sentimental - 1962" reviewed by Marc Davis

Everyone loves a good comeback--especially if the second act is better than the first. Think of Tina Turner, Marlon Brando and George Foreman.

Or tenor saxman Ike Quebec.

Quebec isn't exactly a household name, but his seven Blue Note records are uniformly terrific, and Blue & Sentimental is among the best ever ...

Duke Pearson: WAHOO!

Read "WAHOO!" reviewed by Greg Simmons

Duke Pearson occupied an unusual position within Blue Note Record's roster of artists. In addition to recording as both leader and sideman he also served as the label's A&R man, following in the footsteps of Ike Quebec. Pearson also served as the arranger on many albums, including sessions--Stanley Turrentine's Rough 'n' Tumble, comes to mind--where other ...

The Giant Legacy of Rudy Van Gelder

Read "The Giant Legacy of Rudy Van Gelder" reviewed by Greg Simmons

Recording Engineer Rudy Van Gelder died at home of natural causes on August 25th at the age of 91. His legacy--and it's a big one--is the countless recordings he made during modern jazz's greatest period of innovation. Almost any jazz musician of note who was making records--especially if they were working on the east coast--was captured ...

Sax Gordon: In the Wee Small Hours

Read "In the Wee Small Hours" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Le esibizioni spettacolari da honker anni '40 lo hanno reso famoso al pubblico del blues ma gli amanti del jazz hanno gusti raffinati e non gli prestano molta attenzione. In questo disco, inciso in Italia con Alberto Marsico e Alessandro Minetto, Sax Gordon si mostra però ligio alla tradizione jazzistica del tenore, ampliando il suo campo ...

A Brief, Yet Largely Incomprehensible, History of Blue Note

Read "A Brief, Yet Largely Incomprehensible, History of Blue Note" reviewed by Jeff Fitzgerald, Genius

In future generations, when the story of Our Music is told, there will certainly be a short list of absolutely necessary items which must be mentioned for any complete understanding of the birth and growth of Jazz. It is almost easier to determine what does not belong on the list than what does.

Pete Mills: The Anatomy Of A Jazz Release

Read "Pete Mills: The Anatomy Of A Jazz Release" reviewed by Mark Corroto

I'm here to tell you that everything you thought about the making of a modern jazz records is wrong. The notion that there are talent agents selling concepts to record companies--wrong. That bands work on tunes, perfecting them for months before entering the studio--wrong. That jazz musicians make money from records--again, wrong.
