News Kidd Jordan

Comments Off

This is a photograph of me and friend Edward “Kidd” Jordan, taken out back of the Jazz Showcase in Chicago this year, a month or so before his 77th Birthday.  Kidd was in Chicago for the 2nd Annual “Brotherhood of Fred” show, paying well deserved respect to the late, great Fred Anderson.

Kidd is originally from Crowley, Louisiana and is currently back in his home in New Orleans (watch for his guest spot on the HBO series “Treme” as well), after being displaced for many years by hurricane Katrina.  I met Kidd several years ago on one of his frequent trips to Chicago.  He was very close to Fred Anderson, another great tenor player and for some time, it was rare to see one without the other.  Kidd would be in town to play nightly “after-sets” at Fred’s Velvet Lounge, during the Chicago Jazz Fest.  These after-sets would become legendary before Fred’s untimely death in June of 2010.  I was actually in NYC to photograph the Vision Festival, where Fred (and Kidd) were scheduled to play when I got word of Fred’s death.  I was actually speaking with Kidd at the time I received the call.  Fred had fallen ill a few weeks before and while we all held out hope Fred would recover, it just wasn’t to be.   That evening, pianist Richard Muhal Abrams dedicated his solo performance to Fred.

Kidd has played with so many other legendary players including Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Ornette Coleman, Henry Grimes, Cecil Taylor, Canonball Adderley…really too many to list but you get the idea.  Kidd was also given the Vision Festival’s Lifetime Recognition Award in 2008, well deserved and I was happy to be there for it.  I recall that particular night being in a very small venue on the lower-eastside with no air-condition..during the middle of a heatwave in NYC….    To say Kidd is a wonderful person would be an understatement and I take every opportunity to see him when I can!

This photograph was made by another friend, John Broughton.




News Chuck Workman: 1932 – 2012

Comments Off

I was very sad to get the news that my good friend, Chuck Workman passed away on March 25th at the age of 79.  Chuck was a local jazz radio personality and had spent the better part of  several decades supporting and promoting jazz in all its forms in Indianapolis.  Chuck was the consummate professional and was always there to provide assistance on several programs I put together.   Chuck hosted jazz/arts programs on the radio for many years, most recently at WICR for the past several years.  He also penned a jazz column for Nuvo Newsweekly for the past 17 years.   The photo below was made at the 2010 Indy Jazz Festival in Opti-Park.

News 46 for XLVI : Indianapolis Mural Project

Comments Off

The 46 for XLVI program is a partnership between the Arts Council of Indianapolis and the City of Indianapolis. 46 for XLVI was created to elevate the arts and culture of the City in preparation for Super Bowl XLVI. Over the course of the program both local and national artists will create 46 murals around Marion County.  This particular mural was one of two painted by artist Pamela Bliss for this project.   This particular mural featuring legends of the Indianapolis Jazz scene is on the south side of the Musician’s Repair building at 322 N. Capital Avenue, on the near northside of downtown.   Musicians included at this time are David Baker, J. J. Johnson, Freddie Hubbard and Wes Montgomery.  Others will be added in the near future.


The other mural is entitled “My Affair with Kurt Vonnegut” and is of course of Indianapolis native and writer Kurt Vonnegut.  This is located on the east side of the Massala Building at 345 Mass Ave.

News Paul Weeden

Comments Off

The great guitarist Paul Weeden passed away recently in his home town of Oslo, Norway.  Paul was born in Indianapolis and grew up along side another guitarist you may have heard of, Wes Montgomery.  This photo was made at the Indy Jazz Fest around 1997.  While probably not as well known as he may have been had he remained in the United States, Paul joined the Basie Band upon the death of Freddie Green.  I knew his playing best with organist Don Patterson and altoist Sonny Stitt.



News Melvin Sparks: 1946-2011

Comments Off

I was saddened to hear of the loss of legendary soul/acid jazz guitarist on the 13th of this month.  Tragic to lose someone of his stature at the age of 64.   Over his career, Melvin performed & recorded with many of the great B3 players including Jimmy McGriff, Jack McDuff, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Joey D, Reuben Wilson, Charles Earland and Big John Patton.   He also performed with many other legendary artists over his 40 plus year career including Sam Cooke, Lou Donaldson, Houston Person, Johnny Lytle, Idris Muhammad, Bernard Purdie, Hank Crawford, Red Holloway, Alvin Queen, Sonny Stitt and vocalists Etta Jones and Jimmy Witherspoon.

The photo above was made in a May 2006 performance at The Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis.

News The Velvet Lounge Closes Up Shop

The always amazing Fred Anderson

It appears Fred Anderson’s legendary Velvet Lounge has closed their doors, possilby for good.  Fred passed away last June after a short illness and despite great effort by his Grandaughters to keep it open, it just wasn’t to be.   The Grandaughters did a great job but end the end, Fred’s son took control of it and basically did nothing with it. 

Man, I have a lot of great memories of this location and the one located on Indiana Avenue.  Seeing Fred along side greats such as Henry Grimes, the equally wonderful Kidd Jordan, Hamiett Bluiett, Harrison Bankhead, Dee Alexander, Roscoe Mitchell, Billy Brimfield and many other great musicians was really a treat.  Fred was just a wonderful man, a friend to all that knew him and an amazing artist and mentor to hundreds of musicians over several decades.  Long Live Fred Anderson!!!
