Thelonious Monk straight no chaser by Thelonious Monk( Visual )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Filmmaker Bruce Ricker couldn't believe his luck. Michael and Christian Blackwood's extensive 1968 footage of modern jazz pianist/composer Thelonious Monk - including the very private Monk off stage - was in excellent shape. The reels were, Ricker said, "just sitting there like the Dead Sea Scrolls of jazz". Ricker, as co-producer, joins director and fellow producer Charlotte Zwerin (Gimme Shelter), executive producer Clint Eastwood and others to bring these "scrolls" to vibrant life. Their Thelonious Monk Straight No Chaser combines the Blackwood footage of groundbreaker Monk in studio, on tour and behind the scenes with new interviews, archival photos and more to create a landmark aural and visual treat."--Conteneur

Jazz Sahara Ahmed Abdul-Malik by Ahmed Abdul-Malik( )

8 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

D'origine soudanaise par son père, Ahmed Abdul-Malik a dans son enfance suivi une formation de musicien classique. Il a appris le violon, le violoncelle, le piano et la contrebasse. Après des débuts dans la musique classique, il s'aventure dans le jazz comme contrebassiste dans les années 1940. Il joue, entre autres, dans les orchestre d'Art Blakey (1945-1948), Randy Weston (1957), Thelonious Monk (1957-1958). Passionné par les musiques orientales et africaines, il s'initie à des instruments comme l'oud (luth oriental) et le qanun (sorte de santour égyptien). Il fait d'ailleurs un voyage pour des recherches ethnomusicographiques en Afrique en 1961. Il enregistre comme joueur d'oud dès les années 1950. John Coltrane fera appel à lui pour jouer de cet instrument lors de sessions du << Village Vanguard >> de 1961. Abdul-Malik a enregistré sous son nom, ou comme sideman, des albums très inspirés par les musiques du Moyen Orient. L'<<universalité>> de sa musique a fait que, dans les années 1960, l'<<U.S. State Department >> a organisé pour son groupe une tournée en Amérique du Sud. Abdul-Malik s'est produit aussi en 1972 au Maroc lors du premier << African jazz festival >>
