Musician

Marc Copland

Born:

Born 27 May 1948, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, Copland was a part of the vibrant music scene in Philadelphia as a saxophonist before going to New York where he met John Abercrombie and also played with Chico Hamilton, and others. He experimented with the electric alto but gradually became dissatisfied with the direction his music was taking and, leaving New York, quit playing the sax in order to study piano. He was gone for almost a decade but upon his return to the jazz world in the mid-80s his piano playing was a revelation, his own vividly original style firmly in place. As a sideman he played with Bob Belden, Jane Ira Bloom, Joe Lovano, Tim Hagans, James Moody, Wallace Roney and many others. But his career as a sideman in the Apple was relatively short-lived; Copland began recording and touring in trio with Gary Peacock and Billy Hart (At Night/Sunnyside, Paradiso/Soul Note) In the nineties, his reputation spread owing to three legendary recordings with the Savoy label, which put him on the road in an All-Star quintet (Randy Brecker, Bob Berg, and Dennis Chambers), and later in quartet with guitarist John Abercrombie, Drew Gress, and drummer Hart. Copland has enthralled audiences not only in trio and as a solo pianist, but also as a duo partner without peer—as attested by his duo recordings with Greg Osby (Night Call, Round and Round/Nagel-Heyer) and Gary Peacock (What It Says/Sketch).

Bill Kirchner: For All We Know

Carol Fredette was a lovely and much-admired singer who see-sawed between cabaret and jazz. When she sang jazz, her voice grew hushed, as if telling you a secret. It also could become husky and rich, as on songs like This Is Always and Long Ago and Far Away. Born in 1940, she started singing right after ...
