Bennie Maupin

Born:

Bennie Maupin is best-known for his atmospheric bass clarinet playing on Miles Davis' classic Bitches Brew album, as well as other Miles Davis recordings such as Big Fun, Jack Johnson, and On the Corner. He was a founding member of Herbie Hancock's seminal band The Headhunters, as well as a performer and composer in Hancock's influential Mwandishi band.

Herbie Hancock: Thrust

Read "Herbie Hancock: Thrust" reviewed by Mick Raubenheimer


Haters can hate, but that molten decade sprung between the mid-Sixties and mid-Seventies was a smorgasbord of innovation and adventure in music. While the heady spirit of freedom—and hyper-stimuli of psychedelics—didn't exactly wreak genius upon the average human mind (whose imaginative reach crested at tie-dye shirts, living in tepees, and emancipating body hair), original artists went ...

Meeco: Keeping It Real

Read "Meeco: Keeping It Real" reviewed by Chris May


The Berlin-based producer and composer Meeco has a niche but devoted following, built up over a series of romantically inclined and elegant albums released between 2009 and 2014. The discs, which have pronounced Latin flavours, are Amargo Mel (Connector, 2009), Perfume E Caricias (Connector, 2010), Beauty Of The Night (Connector, 2012) and Souvenirs Of Love (Double ...

From George Coleman to Meeco: Ten Overlooked Classics

Read "From George Coleman to Meeco: Ten Overlooked Classics" reviewed by Chris May


The only thread running through this installment of Building A Jazz Library is that of unsung quality. No particular artist is spotlighted, nor any particular genre. There are simply ten, randomly selected albums, recorded in the US and Europe between 1953 and 2021, which show jazz off at its finest, but which, for one reason or ...

Joan Hutton & Sue Orfield: Take That Back

Read "Take That Back" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Joan Hutton and Sue Orfield's Take that Back opens with the smooth dark chocolate crooning of Hutton's bass clarinet. The tune is “Dirty Secret," a Hutton-penned, mid-tempo gem. And initially what comes to mind is (Bennie Maupin and Eric Dolphy aside) how rarely we hear the bass clarinet on a jazz album. Then Orfield's tenor sax ...

Brad Felt: The Dana Sessions

Read "The Dana Sessions" reviewed by Kyle Simpler


Although jazz music continuously evolves, many of its performers stick to a fairly traditional set of instruments. There are plenty of recordings featuring saxophones, trumpets, pianos, or guitars, but how often do you see a jazz record featuring a euphonium? Brad Felt's The Dana Sessions: Duets With John Dana, showcases the possibilities of this often overlooked ...

Hard Bop: Ten Essential Live Albums

Read "Hard Bop: Ten Essential Live Albums" reviewed by Chris May


"Fire! That's what people want. Music is supposed to wash away the dust of everyday life. You're supposed to make them turn around, pat their feet. That's what jazz is about. Play with fire. Play from the heart, not from your brain. You got to know how to make the two meet." So ...
