Barry Harris The Spirit of Bebop ( visu )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
Dubbed the "key conservator" of bebop music by Village Voice jazz critic Gary Giddins, Barry Harris has kept the spirit of the art form alive through teaching and band-leading as well as by performing and composing in his own right. This intimate portrait reveals both the personal and professional sides of the pianist while taking viewers on a historic walk through the jazz music of the 1950s and '60s. The artist's personal reminiscences about friends and influences-including Charlie Parker, Thelonius Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, and Miles Davis-are juxtaposed with highlights of his personal playing style, his way of connecting with an audience, and his sense of humor-an attribute visible even when he's composing. In addition, students from a wide range of backgrounds share stories about what it's like to study with a living legend of jazz
