As early as the 1930s, artists attempted to cultivate ideas of “symphonic jazz”, taking it away from its perceived vernacular and black American roots. Following these developments, histories of popular music tend to marginalize jazz, partly because the reformulation of jazz in the art discourse has been so successful that many would not consider it a form of popular music. Steve Drown, MECA&D’s new Assistant Professor of Music, in the newly launched Bob Crewe Program in Art and Music, has been an independent recording engineer for the last 21 years and a professional musician for nearly 30. He has a BM in music production and engineering from Berklee College of Music and works as an engineer at The Studio, which provides state-of-the-art recording, digital editing and more in downtown Portland. Steve’s forte is making good musicians sound great—often in ways they don’t expect. He has worked with James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite, Ronnie Earl, Roy Scheider, Patty Larkin, Kate Schrock, and Ron Carter, among other musicians.

He does not play it safe; he jumps into the fire feet first, exploring extended chord positions and somehow landing on notes you’d never expect, giving one the thrill of hearing a master improviser in his element. At the beginning of the 20th century, art music was divided into “serious music” and “light music”. During the second half of the century, there was a large-scale trend in American culture toward blurring the boundaries between art and pop music.
After the first exhibition of her pictures in Berlin, her “God-given talent” was several times mentioned by the art critics. In Manila particularly, amidst the pealing of bells and strains of music, unfeigned enthusiasm and joy were everywhere evident. Woman is mistress of the art of completely embittering the life of the person on whom she depends. LaShae Boyd graduated from Columbus College of Art and Design with a BFA in 2019. Boyd has recently exhibited work at the John Glenn International Airport in Columbus, Ohio in partnership with 934 Gallery, along with the Columbus Arts Festival in 2019 and has been published in 614 Magazine.
It’s more of a carefree romp, although the bridge uses rising chromatics which gives the tune an interesting shape. Here, Zinn is the first soloist up, and he does try to play Witzel’s game of creating an entirely new piece from the basic material. He comes close, but eventually departs from the structure of the first half of his solo to “take off” in his own angular style. As I say, he’s quite interesting and not really disruptive, but at times he does sound as if he’s playing with a different group.
THE ART MUSIC LOUNGE
This is not a ‘how to’ book, nor is it meant as any kind of music theory dogma. When we can think and hear in new ways, we can expand our creative approach and concept. Thus I hear this as a very carefully prepared and meticulously played performance of the symphony that only occasionally touches the raw nerve endings that Mahler put into it.
I need not add, for those who have sampled him on YouTube, that this is not how Bychkov normally conducts these works in live performances, but the recording is what it is. A neophyte listener will not be disappointed by it, and may in fact come to appreciate all its little details very well as this is the performance’s primary focus, but as an emotional statement, it comes close but no cigar. Witzel imparts a surprising, medium-fast Latin beat to Lerner and Loewe’s If Ever I Would Leave You although the middle eight, played by Ho, is in a straight 4, and it moves steadily into 4 once the initial theme statement is done and Ho begins soloing. We move back to the Latin beat for Witzel’s solo, here again at a high level, and again extended over more than one chorus. Ms. Information, another Witzel original, is not as fine a composition as the previous two, the melody line being vague and unmemorable, but again the solos are excellent.

The Bob Crewe Program in Art and Music enables students to explore the deep relationship between art and music. Made possible by the largest gift in the College’s 132 year history, a $3 million bequest from the Bob Crewe Foundation, this program is unique in that it is fundamentally embedded into the Art and Design program, not separated from it. The goals of the program are to foster experimentation in art and music, to support significant contributions to popular musical expression, and to do both in a way that encourages interdisciplinary exploration.
Russell’s book, which has inspired some and confused many, nonetheless led to his being championed by the late Gunther Schuller to head the jazz program at the New England Conservatory of Music. With Webern, Iman is more able to create his brand of “atonal lyricism,” at least in spots, and this is in line with the way Webern conducted his own music . The name of Gilbert Amy (b. 1936) was entirely new to me, but alas, the music was not. You can only do so much with it; it is not a device that frees composers, but on the contrary, locks them into a pattern that they must adhere to. As usual, Scopel is a master of both mood and articulation, bringing out the structure of these pieces without over-emphasizing anything yet still making every note, even in the inner voices, audible to the listener. With his truly genuine bel-canto voice, Celso Albelo is currently one of the most courted tenors on the international opera circuit.
It covers everything, including client work, paid ads, games and more. If you only create projects for your social media channels, the Personal license has you covered. But the uses he envisioned for music, despite his innovations, were in the mainstream of tradition; Luther insisted that music must be simple, direct, accessible, an aid to piety.
