Interview with the First Lady of Bass: Carol Kaye

"Carol Kaye: you may not recognize her name but chances are you're familiar with her work. Now 79, the lady has laid down some deeply iconic bass tracks in a career spanning 55 years and something in the neighborhood of 10,000 recording sessions."

(Ayun Halliday, 28 April 2014, Open Culture)

Thelonious Monk: Straight, No Chaser (1988)

"Expanding on footage of Monk's 1967 tour shot by Christian Blackwood, Charlotte Zwering (Gimme Shelter) has created the definitive filmic portrait of the master bop pianist–composer. This captivating DVD digs deeper into the life of the famously eccentric pianist–composer ...

Straight, No Chaser fleshes out Monk's character considerably – from his harmonic theories to his use of quarter – tones (produced by hitting two adjacent piano keys simultaneously and occasionally even striking the boards with his entire forearm or his foot) to his mysterious relationship with his patron, baroness Nica de Koenigswarter."

Roach: A Marvellous Swirl of Melodies and Rhythms

"An hourlong solo drum performance might sound like a form of slow torture. But with Max Roach behind the drums, the time swings by in a marvellous swirl of melodies and rhythms.

With the variable touch of a great pianist, Roach draws a symphony of tones and timbres from all parts of his drums and cymbals. The master sound painter dazzled and delighted the crowd at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre on Wednesday night with a series of beautifully developed solos that danced and sang."

(Jesse Hamlin, 1 November 1996, Chronicle Staff Critic)
