What an amazing night from the one of the truly great saxophonists on the UK jazz scene. Art started playing with Stan Tracey in 1974 and he has since played with all of Tracey’s groups, touring with him all over the world as well as around the UK. He has also played Jazznights Art Theman 290315 (179) and toured with musicians such as Nat Adderley, Ian Carr, George Coleman, and Al Haig.  He is famously an ex-orthopaedic surgeon!

In 1974 he entered on what was to be one of his central musical relationships when he Jazznights Art Theman 290315 (93)started playing with Stan Tracey. He has played with all of Tracey’s groups, touring with him all over the world as well as around the UK. He has also played and toured with musicians such as Nat Adderley, Ian Carr, George Coleman, and Al Haig.

In 1995 he formed a quartet with pianist John Critchinson.
His style originally owed much to the influence of Dexter Gordon and Sonny Rollins, but later influences included such disparate saxophonists as Coleman Hawkins, Evan Parker,  and the “sheets of sound” John Coltrane.

Art has also played with US stars, including Al Haig. Simon Spillett calls Art “Doctor Jazz”, in a recent Jazz Journal. Now retired from his other career, as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon, he can please jazz audiences even more with consummate playing of tenor and soprano sax, flute and clarinet.

Herbert is clearly an improviser at heart, and his desire to improvise yields pleasing results on ‘My Favourite Tunes’.

Too Cool – Sue Richardson’s celebration of Chet Baker with the Roger Odell Jazznights Trio at The Cock Inn, Clare on Sunday 1st March 2015.

(Click on images for larger pictures)

A special show featuring Chet’s most famous standards, his own compositions and works inspired by his life. As well as performing some of the songs forever associated with Chet and his sublime solos Sue has uncovered great songs written by him. There is also new material, written by Sue, including works inspired by Chet Baker’s life away from music.

Jazznights Sue Richardson 010315 (129) Weaving through the music are anecdotes about Chet, whose sweet music was such a contrast to his troubled life. Actress and theatre director Sylvia Syms helped Sue craft the narrative and is as important as the music and makes the music more accessible to all audiences. It always generates great interest and discussion between Chet fans and people new to the music. Sue takes them on a journey through Chet’s life highlighted by new numbers Sue has written.

It also focuses on lesser-known material composed by Chet himself whilst in prison in Italy (some of these have been translated from their original Italian into English by Georgia Mancio especially for this show). The narrative content has been developed following Sue’s research and discussions with people who Chet worked with (such as Archie Shepp) and also his biographers James Gavin and Matthew Ruddick.

The show sold out at Ronnie Scotts and Seven Arts in Leeds described the show as a ‘tour de force performance’
The SUNDAY TIMES listed Too Cool in their 100 Best Records of the Year 2013 (at no.8 in the jazz chart) – ‘brings the boy wonder back to life’.

FOUR STAR REVIEW in The Observer – ‘This polished tribute marks the 25th anniversary of Chet Baker’s death. Like Dorian Gray in reverse, the angel-faced Chet aged hideously while Jazznights Sue Richardson 010315 (103) his music remained pristine until the end. Sue Richardson’s trumpet playing catches his combination of delicacy and strength, and her singing has something of his candid simplicity. She even writes the kind of tunes that he might have invented. Also included are some pieces he wrote while serving time in jail.

Jazzwise – Too Cool presents some of the music from the similarly named show Sue Richardson has written to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Chet Baker’s death. Taking a fascinating, multi perspective approach,alongside the trumpeter’s new Chet-inspired compositions we also get to hear some of Chet’s own songs plus one of the standards that he is most strongly associated with, ‘My Funny Valentine’. Featuring new English lyrics courtesy of Georgia Mancio, the Baker original ‘Chetty’s Lullaby’ is beautifully done, unfolding in one single, expressive arc. Of Richardson’s originals, ‘On A Moon Beam’ is a standout: understated, withwide-open spaces, and plugging straight into that singular melancholy that Baker made into an art. Heard earlier as an instrumental, the album’s bonus track, a delicately floating vocal version of Baker’s ‘So Che Ti Perdero (I Know I Will Lose You)’, rounds off this impressive, personal tribute

This is what the Jazznights audience at the Cock Inn, Clare enjoyed with Sue accompanied by the Jazznights Trio who were:

Roger Odell – Drums
Roger was one of the founder members and drummer with the jazz-funk group Shakatak and the forerunner band Tracks. Roger has toured internationally and recorded numerous CDs, which he continues to do on a regular basis to this day.

Simon Brown – Piano
Simon is a highly respected and popular jazz pianist who is equally known for his arranging skills. His bands include the quintet Beyond Cantaloupe featuring the music of Herbie Hancock, the Simon Brown Trio and Quartet.

      Jazznights Roger Odell 010315 (50)            Jazznights Simon Brown 010315 (115)

Spending much of his time in the recording studios, he is equally at home and in demand as an enthusiastic “live” rhythm section player.

With additional vocals from
Larraine Odell – Vocals
Beginning her professional singing career with the group CMU with whom she recorded two albums, Larraine performed at numerous venues throughout the UK and Europe, including the Purcell Room, Royal Festival Hall. Boxford Fleece & Ronnie Scott’s.

Wild Is the Wind is a song written by Dimitri Tiomkin and Ned Washington. The track was originally recorded by Johnny Mathis for the 1957 film Wild Is the Wind.
Just in Time (1956) Music from Jule Styne and Lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Once you’ve heard Frank Sinatra’s 1958 version of this Broadway show tune it’s hard to imagine it not swinging and Larraine and the Jazznights Trio did just that!

Sue Richardson then joined the band to play and sing:
A number written by Sue based on a solo by Bix Beiderbeck, an early influence of Jazznights Sue Richardson   Jazznights Trio 010315 (90)Chet Baker.
A medley of Chet’s Harry James favourites.

Bernie’s Tune is a 1953 jazz standard. It was written by Bernie Miller, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.[1] It was popularised with a recording by the quartet of the American saxophonist and composer Gerry Mulligan, on the 1952 album Jazznights Sue Richardson 010315 (106)of the same name, which also featured Chet Baker on trumpet.
Chetty’s Lullaby is a 1962 jazz song composed by Chet Baker which he wrote while incarcerated in Italy in memory of Chet’s son.
Anticipated Blues written by Chet and recorded by him many times.

Following the Jazznights raffle of 2 jazz cd’s and a bottle of wine Sue Richardson re-joined the Jazznights Trio to play and sing:

It Could Happen to You (1944) by Jimmy Van Heusen (he really did change his name to that of the shirt maker) and is a Chet Baker album of the same name.
I Remember You is a popular song. The music was written by Victor Schertzinger, the  lyrics by Johnny Mercer. The song was published in 1941 and recorded by Chet with Bud Shank in 1955.
So che ti perdero – I Know I will Lose You, written by Chet during the Italian prison period.
Let’s Get Lost (1988) is an American documentary film about the turbulent life and career of jazz trumpeter Chet Baker written and directed by Bruce Weber. The title is derived from a song by Jimmy McHugh and Frank Loesser from the 1943 film Happy Go Lucky which Baker recorded for Pacific Records.Jazznights Sue Richardson   Jazznights Trio 010315 (88)
Motivo su raggio di luna Motif On A Moonbeam another number written by Chet from the Italian period.
All my tomorrows written by Paul Ryan
But Not for Me  is a popular song, composed by George Gershwin and featured Chet Baker, on the album Chet Baker Sings.
Time After Time is a jazz standard written by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne in 1947 which Chet made his own.
Sadly Sue’s last number could only be My Funny Valentine which is a show tune from the 1937 Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart musical Babes in Arms in which it was very famously recorded by Chet Baker and really is his signature tune.
