"After Billie Holiday’s funeral service, there was such a quietness over these musicians, such a multitude of them there, and we just stood around like in awe and we filed out of the church and stood on the corners for a few minutes until everybody got out and we just quietly just stepped away into the crowd. It was not the usual thing of musicians going to a bar…having a nice drink or a type of New Orleans festivity. It was just dead quiet and sadness."

RIP Billie Holiday (April 7, 1915 - July 17, 1959)

Rest in peace, Charlie Haden.


“One night I was playing with my eyes closed and all of a sudden I opened my eyes and someone is up on the stage with his ear to the F hole of my bass! And I looked over at Ornette and I said, ‘Coleman, who is this, get this guy off the bandstand!’ And he says, ‘That’s Leonard Bernstein!’” -Charlie Haden


Our next piece of French music was written by Gérard Grisey in 1975, and is called Partiels. Grisey is one of the most important composers of the spectral music movement, in which compositions are developed from sonographic and mathematic analysis of sounds. Partiels is probably one of the most important pieces of spectral music, inspiring many of the next generation of spectral composers to begin composing. Dark and foreboding, the music slowly develops and morphs itself into an intense and abstract soundscape that weirdly blurs orchestral and electronic music, with the occasional jazz note.
