How black musicians helped reform Local 802

Interview with Jacob Goldberg

Jazz on the Tube interviews Jacob Goldberg author of “Swingin’ the Color Line.”

Music is a calling – but it’s also an occupation.

Fair pay, unrestricted job opportunities, good working conditions, the need for benefits like health care and retirement support…all these are issues for musicians too.

African-American musicians played an important role in reforming Local 802, the New York City musicians union, and their actions had widespread ramifications not only for New York-based musicians, but musicians – and workers – everywhere.

Unfortunately, the audio quality has some problems in spots, but this a very eye opening story.

You can get Jacob’s book “Swingin’ the Color Line: African-American Musicians and the Formation of Local 802” by visiting Lulu.com

Jazz from Detroit!

Interview with Mark Stryker

Jazz on the Tube interviews Mark Stryker, author of the book “Jazz from Detroit.”

I put an exclamation point on this one.

Why?

Because if you don’t know the Detroit jazz story, it’s going to shock you.

But don’t take it from me…

“There is no other city like Detroit: the musicians, the vibe, the people.” – Sonny Rollins

“No city has meant more to American musical culture than Detroit.” – Pat Metheny

You want names?

How about Donald Byrd, Wardell Gray, Paul Chambers, Ron Carter, Howard McGhee, Major Holley, Gerald Wilson, Alice Coltrane, Al McKibbon, Billy Mitchell, Geri Allen, Lucky Thompson, and Kenny Burrell.

And that’s the short list from just one Detroit high school.

Neurophysiologist Stephen Porges – A scientist and musician looks at the profoundly nurturing quality of music education

Jazz on the Tube interviews Professor Stephen Porges.

Here’s how the theory looks in practice

Duke Ellington’s “Black and Tan Fantasy” by the 2014 Beloit Memorial High School Jazz Band at the Essentially Ellington competition at Jazz at Lincoln Center New York.

Question: Shouldn’t all children have access to quality music education?

Discuss among yourselves.

Sheila Jordan “talks” about her education in music and she and the band demonstrate the incomparable social engagement power of music.
