Bill Dixon

Bill Dixon was a musician (trumpet, flugelhorn and piano) and teacher born in Nantucket, MA. His early studies came from the Harnett Conservatory of Music and (contrary to my misinformation) he studied painting at Boston University, WPA Arts School and the Arts Student League. He also worked at the United Nations and founded the UN Jazz Society, as well as the Jazz Composers Guild. He has worked with Archie Shepp and Cecil Taylor and was a professor of music at Bennington College for nearly 30 years. He passed away in June of 2010.



Joseph Daley attended Music and Art High School and the Manhattan School of Music. He has received fellowships from the National Endowment, MacDowell Colony, Music Omi, and Geraldine R Dodge Foundation. He also taught music for 30 years. His first album, The Seven Deadly Sins was released in 2011 and he currently plays and is touring with his collaborative project with Wade Schuman, Hazmat Modine, which just released their second album Cicada.


Cicada CD Release event Le Poisson Rogue 5-21-2011


After 6 years of touring, visiting more than twenty countries around the world, Hazmat modine comes back with a new album which reflects their musical evolution. Their new CD, Cidada, is a cosmopolitan view of American Roots and soul music which incorporates sounds from Tuva, Romania and Benin among others, but remains rooted in a specifically American idiom - an idiom that owes as much to the immigrant experience as it does to early blues.

Hazmat CD event-6-

Adding to the extraordinary musicianship of Hazmat's nine musicians on the CD are memorable participations by Natalie Merchant, The Kronos Quartet, Catherine Russell and the amazing Gangbe Brass Band from Benin. Live, the band is driven by a pair of dueling harmonicas, backed by tuba, drums, two guitars and a horn section made up of trumpet, reeds and trombone.

Hazmat CD event-7-

In celebration of the CD release the nine piece band will be joined by opening special guest Rachelle Garniez, as well as Erik Della Penna and Skye Steele.

Jazz-Tipp: Joseph Earth Tones Ensemble Daley - "The Seven Deadly Sins"

"The Seven Deadly Sins" inkl. Video-Trailer siehe Bericht im Musik Report

Der 1949 in Harlem (USA) geborene Jazz Musiker Joseph Daley ist seit langen Jahren ein Spezialist fur die tiefen Töne. In den Bands von Gil Evans oder Carla Bley oder in der New Yorker Band Hazmat Modine spielt er Baritonhorn, Euphonium, Posaune und Tuba. Alles weit unten.

Mit "The Seven Deadly Sins" und seiner Komposition fur das Earth Tones Ensemble erfüllt sich Daley einen Traum: Eine mit Kontrabassklarinette, Kontrabasssaxofon, Bassposaune und bis zu funf Tuben besetzte Big Band zu einer Einheit zusammenzufügen.

Das Ergebnis ist ein satt vibrierendes und vertontes Panorama der Sünde aus: Neid, Geiz, Völlerei, Hochmut, Wollust, Zorn, Trägheit des Herzens - ein passendes Laster fur jede Stimmung.

Daleys Mitstreiter loten die Möglichkeiten ihrer Musik mit hörbarer Lust aus. Das Earth Tone Ensemble inszeniert das Genre Big Band als panoramatischen Blick von seinen Anfängen als Streetband bis zu den Ekstasen des Free Jazz. Ein Sundenpfuhl, der gar nicht so lasterhaft klingt.

Wer ist Joseph Daley? Viele Jazzfans dürften die eine oder andere Platte besitzen, auf der Joe Daley für die Bass-Basis sorgt. Der 1949 in Harlem geborene und an der Manhattan School of Music ausgebildete Musiker hat vom Gil Evans Orchestra über die Carla Bley Band bis zu Charlie Hadens Liberation Orchestra seit den frühen siebziger Jahren in den stilbildenden Großformationen gespielt.

Eine seine ersten Stationen war die Brass-Sektion in Taj Mahals Band, in der er mit Howard Johnson, Bob Stewart und Earl McIntyre für den gewichtigen Bass-Groove verantwortlich war, und woraus letztlich auch Howard Johnsons Tieftöner-Kapelle Gravity entstand. Der hat Joe Daley natürlich ebenfalls angehört. Eine große Zahl weiterer erster Jazz-Adressen ließe sich noch hinzufügen.

Aktuell bläst Daley Tuba bei einer der interessantesten New Yorker Bands, bei Hazmat Modine, einer Band, die stilistisch schwer zuzuordnen ist, weil sie Blues, Klezmer, Balkanbeats, Jazz und Rock ungestüm verquirlt (Video: Hazmat Modine - Yesterday Morning) .

Der Kopf von Hazmat Modine, der Sänger, Gitarrist und Harmonikaspieler Wade Schuman (siehe Video), wiederum ist mitverantwortlich für Joseph Daleys Komposition The Seven Deadly Sins.

Platten von Hazmat Modine - bei Amazon.de

Wade Schuman ist nämlich nicht nur Musiker sondern vor allen Dingen bildender Künstler und er hat einen Zyklus über die sieben Todsünden gemalt, den Daley nun in Töne übersetzt hat (weitere Informationen über den Künstler siehe Weiterleitung). Quelle: Amazon.de

English Translation: Album Reviewed at the Das Musik-Magazin Blog

In 1949, in Harlem (USA) born jazz musician Joseph Daley has long been a specialist in the low notes. In the bands of Gil Evans or Carla Bley or in the New York band Hazmat Modine, he plays baritone horn, euphonium, trombone and tuba. Everything below far.

With "The Seven Deadly Sins" and his composition for the Earth Tones fulfilled a dream ensemble, Daley: A merge with bass clarinet, bass saxophone, bass trombone, and up to five tubes occupied big band into a unit.

The result is a vibrant and voiced full panorama of the sin of envy, greed, gluttony, pride, lust, anger, sloth of the heart - a fitting truck for every mood.

Daley's supporters are exploring the possibilities of their music with audible pleasure.The Earth Tone Ensemble staged the genre Big Band with panoramic views from its beginnings as a street band to the ecstasies of free jazz. A Sundenpfuhl, who does not sound so vicious.

Who is Joseph Daley? Many jazz fans should have one or the other plate, shall, on the Joe Daley for the bass-base. The 1949 in Harlem, born and studied at the Manhattan School of Music-trained musician from the Gil Evans Orchestra Carla Bley Band played on up to Charlie Haden's Liberation Orchestra since the early seventies in the style-large formations.

One of his first stops was the brass section in Taj Mahal's band, where he was responsible to Howard Johnson, Bob Stewart, Earl McIntyre for the weighty bass groove, and from which, ultimately, Howard Johnson's Gravity Woofer chapel was built.The Joe Daley has obviously listened well. A large number of other first jazz addresses could be to add.

Currently Daley tuba blows at one of the most interesting New York bands, with Hazmat Modine, a band that is stylistically difficult to assign because they whisked Blues, Klezmer, Balkan beats, jazz and rock violently (Video: Hazmat Modine - Yesterday Morning).

The head of Hazmat Modine, the singer, guitarist and harmonica player Wade Schuman (see video), in turn, is partly responsible for Joseph Daley's piece The Seven Deadly Sins.

Wade Schuman is not only musicians but above all, an artist and he painted a series on the seven deadly sins, the Daley has now been translated into sounds (for more information about the artist see forward). Source: Amazon.de
