Leo Pinkus celebrated the 15th anniversary of their successful nitery. Basie and his band perform frequently at the Steak Pit, along with other top dance bands. In a manner of speaking, such an attitude has contributed to the decrease in at- tendance at in-person appearances.
But, too often there are instances when the live performance completely eclipses anything that could be cap- tured on record; often, it's like seeing and hearing two completely different performances. This point of view was brought into focus when I had the pleasure of seeing and hearing Don Ellis and his big band. I emphasize the visual aspect of his presentation be- cause it, as much as the music, brings one right in to the core of what he and the band are doing and saying.
Even on record his music impressed me sufficiently to write about it and to make me feel that he was one of the few who were really into some- thing new, something special. Still, by compar- ison to the live performance, his rec- ordings might have been done by a different man, a different band.
Tension and intensity are the two most significant ingredients that ab- sorb the listener when he sees the band as a total unit, under the active, and I do mean active, direction of Ellis.
The total involvement of leader and player has an almost spellbind- ing effect on the listener That's mainly why I asked myself, when I left the auditorium, what there was about the performance that made such a tremendous impression on me.
I discovered, after much reflection that the overwhelming spirit and involve- ment of Ellis and his players was what brought me in and made me feel al- most like another member of the band. I was completely absorbed with what was going on onstage, not only from an audible point of reference but, and again I wish, to emphasize this point, from the visual point, too.
Musicians, jazzmen partic- ularly, have to feel like one with the music to have such a high tolerance rate at rehearsal sessions. The chal- lenge must be there and the make-up of the band has to be such that every- one welcomes a musical challenge, even invites it. Many Special Effects Don has made prudent use of the amplification of horns, his own in- cluded, and he has also gotten into the tape playback thing, complete with delay so that he can play over what he had played just seconds before.
The complement of four percussion- ists develops a powerful rhythmic platform from which much of Ellis' music emerges. Here again, tension and dynamics are very vital factors in the application of all the percussion effects.
His music is so super-charged with effects that it seems like a natural state to have lights, too. As I saw it, she represented the involvement that was the audience's It was apparent that Patty was completely turned on by the band, and that she had virtually the same effect on Ellis and his men.
After the show backstage, I beheld Miss Allen sitting quietly in the corner with a quilted robe about her, and I hurried over to tell her how much I appreci- ated her efforts. Needless - to say, my observation about Don was intended to be only complimentary. Appearance Different Than Recording I had only the barest opportunity to speak to Ellis after the concert was over because he was literally sur- rounded by students asking questions.
I did have time to notice that his phys- ical being had undergone an almost complete change. Whereas before the concert he had a wonderfully well- rested look about him, now, only an hour later, he looked wan, and com- pletely drained, virtually exhausted, or so it appeared to me. And I am able to understand how he might be com- pletely sapped of energy after a set like the one I heard.
He puts so much of his being into playing, conducting, and living the music that it must be completely enervating.
