MUSICIAN Born:

Steve Provizer

I studied music at Berklee, N.E.C. and Indian music at Wesleyan. Been in and out of many bands. Latest incarnation is my group "Travelin' Light," with me on trumpet, valve trombone and vocals, along with 2 other vocalists. We do original arrangements of standards, jazz tunes and vocalese for which I write lyrics. Another part of me plays and has always played free music, with my main collaborator being guitarist Keith Crook. I also play with a group called the Second Line Social Aid and Pleasure Society Marching Brass Band. I also have a media background, having worked in television, print and, for the last 10 years, radio

Jazz Snacks for the Pandemic

Read "Jazz Snacks for the Pandemic" reviewed by Steve Provizer

Jazz fanatics are particularly egregious eaters—too busy listening to pay much attention to food. I believe this array of sweet treats will satisfy even the most ludicrously undeveloped jazz palates.

New Media, Jazz and Camille Bertault

Read "New Media, Jazz and Camille Bertault" reviewed by Steve Provizer

A recent headline in Fortune.com read: “Why 'Success' on YouTube Still Means a Life of Poverty." Hundreds of thousands, even millions of views often result in meaningless royalty checks to musicians from YouTube (owned by Google). And yet, there are musicians whose videos on that platform, combined with a Facebook and Instagram presence, have either created ...

Remembering Claudio Roditi

Read "Remembering Claudio Roditi" reviewed by Steve Provizer

I knew trumpet player Claudio Roditi for many years and although years would pass between encounters, he made a deep impression. I was very moved by his recent death, as were so many in the jazz community. Claudio was Brazilian and a well-known musician in his country, but like a lot of jazz musicians ...

Bret Primack on Jazz Video and the Ira Gitler Documentary

Read "Bret Primack on Jazz Video and the Ira Gitler Documentary" reviewed by Steve Provizer

Since the 1990's, Bret Primack has probably been the most prolific video chronicler of jazz in the world. He has just released a documentary about jazz writer-record producer Ira Gitler called Ira Gitler Lives. Since Gitler was a big fan of Charlie Parker, I presume this is a play on a famous bit of graffiti—"Bird Lives." ...

Sex and The Single Trumpet Player

Read "Sex and The Single Trumpet Player" reviewed by Steve Provizer

Jack Sheldon (November 30, 1931) and Chet Baker (December 23, 1929-May 13, 1988)—two trumpeter/vocalists with a great deal in common. They spent their years of jazz apprenticeship, the early 1950's, on the West Coast, largely in jny: Los Angeles. They played in similar styles and their musical career paths early on were pretty similar, although Baker ...

A New Jazz Typology

Read "A New Jazz Typology" reviewed by Steve Provizer

A letter from an admirer of the Institute reads as follows: ..."why is the Tristano school always shown as a branch of cool jazz? Those guys were hardcore bebop heads. Is it just that they were white and some of them wore glasses so people confuse them with Brubeck?" A seemingly offhand, almost rhetorical question, which ...
