Famous Friends Of Shawn Phillips He is a brilliant pianist, composer and arranger. Elton was still the mail boy for dick james Publishing in London. The studio was in the offices there. http://www.etsmtl.ca/pers/jboisono/shawnphillips/friends/
Extractions: Here are some of them. T he musician Shawn has collaborated with the most is Peter Robinson . He is a brilliant pianist, composer and arranger. They have played together on numerous Shawn Phillips albums (and tours). Today, Peter's work can be heard on TV shows, movie soundtracks, and several other artists' and groups' recordings. C omposer/Cellist Paul Buckmaster has worked a lot with Shawn also. He has arranged some of the most beautiful string orchestration on Shawn's albums. Today, Paul's work can also be heard on movie soundtracks and several other artists' and groups' recordings. S hawn gave Joni Mitchell some early guitar lessons, when she was a waitress, at the Louis Riel Coffee House, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She was already fairly comfortable with the instrument, but wanted to learn more about Shawn's 12 string technique, and playing in general. Shawn was booked there for almost a whole week, so they did have time to get to know each other. S hawn was invited a couple of times to Paul McCartney's and George Harrison's house. They were on a very friendly basis. Paul invited Shawn to a session, and he ended up singing background vocals on "Lovely Rita Meter Maid", and they saw each other socially many times after that, at the Moody Blues house, and various clubs around London. Shawn gave George some basic lessons on sitar, before he ever actually met Ravi Shankar. It was basically the same with John and Ritchie (Ringo). Although, Shawn never went to their houses.

Three or four of them had made a record apart from the rest of the group, which was produced by Larry Page of Troggs tape fame, and they were playing as Chris Lamb and the Universals in this night club in Sunderland. They were looking for a guitarist and they saw this friend of mine with frizzy hair and asked him if he was a guitarist they didn't want to get a face from London into the band. He said 'No I'm not, but I know somebody who is'. At the time, this guy was sharing up [

Extractions: John Steiner is best-known as the man who bought, operated, and later sold Paramount Records, the Wisconsin-based record company that issued more "race" records than any other company in the 1921-1932 period. More than 1,150 couplings of great jazz by Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, Clarence Williams, Mugsy Spanier and Frank Teschemaker, Fletcher Henderson, Johnny Dodds, Jimmy Blythe, plus blues that included all the recordings of Ma Rainey, Ida Cox, Skip James, Papa Charlie Jackson, and Charlie Spand as well as the earliest recordings of Charley Patton, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Alberta Hunter, Tampa Red, Big Bill Broonzy plus hundreds of others. There was a sizable catalog of black religious, country and pop music of that era, too. The John Steiner story goes back the twenties to a young jazz fan from Milwaukee (born July 21, 1908) working toward his Ph.D in Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. By 1935 he was involved with Helen Oakley (Down Beat reporter and Okeh record producer) and Harry Lim (later of Keynote Records) in the formation of the country's first jazz support organization, The Hot Club of Chicago (named after the French org.). The first HCC concert presented Benny Goodman (then in his historic stand at the Congress Hotel) in a trio format with the band's drummer, Gene Krupa and a local pianist named Teddy Wilson. The idea , a jump-start in jazz history, birthed the band-within-a-band concept which helped Herman, Crosby, Dorsey, Shaw, etc. keep combo jazz alive in the big band era. HCC concerts continued into the 40's.

Elton John ad, and the duo became a professional songwriting team for dick james new label Rocket Man, inaugurated a string of hits for the singerpianist, who scored http://www.allperson.com/allperson/legend/0000000059.asp
Extractions: John's live shows became known for their flamboyance and energy the singer would appear on stage wearing feather boas, garish sunglasses, platform shoes, and multi-colored hair. 1975's Captain Fantastic became the first album ever to debut at No. 1. In 1977 John announced that he would no longer perform live, due to exhaustion, and would limit his record output. More importantly, he and Bernard Taupin ceased working together, with John bringing in other songwriters and Taupin penning lyrics for other artists. Elton John began a comeback tour in 1979, without his usual backup band. The extensive world tour passed through Russia, among other stops, making John the first Western artist to tour the Communist U.S.S.R. In 1980 John and Taupin reunited for 21 at 33, spawning the Top 10 hit "Little Jeanie." Switching from MCA to Geffen, John continued releasing gold records, occasionally scoring hits like 1983's "I Guess That's Why They Call it the Blues" and 1984's "Sad Songs (Say So Much)," but moved from rock/pop to a more mellow adult contemporary sound. He also took an interest in AIDS research, befriending teenage AIDS victim Ryan White and forming the Elton John AIDS Foundation in 1991; he also announced that he would donate all future royalties from his singles to AIDS charities. John mounted another comeback with 1992's The One, which went double platinum. That same year he and Taupin signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappel Music for nearly $40 million. In 1994 Elton John scored his biggest hit in years with "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" from The Lion King soundtrack, winning five Grammy nominations and three Oscar nominations. That same year, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Jazz Piano Online This list is for any jazz pianist. George Weiss, Michael Weldon, Nick Wellstood, dick Werner, Kenny Gerry Williams, Clarence Williams, james Williams, Jessica http://www.geocities.com/BourbonStreet/Delta/2790/people.html
Extractions: It is observed that the whole history of jazz can be read through the chart of the stylistic development of the pianists. They started it all and other instrumentalists use the techniques which they developed. Even if the pianist is not the star, he is a kind of an aristocrat. He is practically alone and can manage by himself if necessary. Over the years, respect for the role of the jazz pianist has increased. This page will eventually be more descriptive and include many more pianists. I am gradually writing more on people and gathering links. If you would like me to hurry up on one person in particular that you see below, let me know. Tell me who I need to add to this list!!! Send me links, anecdotes, samples of their work, anything.. And yes, you can nominate yourself to be on here. This list is for any jazz pianist. Thanks to all of you who have already submitted information and links!!! Luke Gillespie

Extractions: The Debussy Quartet has built a reputation graced with international acclaim through their many recordings and live performances. From the Salle Moliere in Lyon, France to the Kaufman Concert Hall at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, the quartet has enlivened the chamber music world with performances of distinction: lush with detail and atmosphere, stylish, technically exciting, and musically thoughtful. Based in Lyon, France, and honored as Winners of the Evian International String Quartet Competition, the quartet perform some 80 concerts a year in Europe, Asia, and North America. Their recent U.S. tours have included concerts in Washington, DC, New York, San Diego, St. Louis, Austin, Detroit, Palm Beach and many other communities from coast to coast. They have built a special connection to the audiences at the Round Top Festival in Round Top, Texas, where they have continued their collaboration with distinguished American pianist James Dick. The group's expansive repertoire is enhanced by their special commitment to bring distinguished works of French composers to the stage and the recording studio. Through their particular acclaim for their interpretations of the Debussy and Ravel quartet, they have introduced audiences to other French works such as those of Lalo, Lekeu, and the late romantic composer Ermend Bonnal. Currently touring the quartets of Shostakovitch, all of which they have recorded for the Arion label, they also offer works of Janacek, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, and more. Noted for their collaborative performances both with James Dick and with French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, the artists together offer the major piano quintet repertoire on tour as well.
