Shirley Horn has made a remarkably strong and consistent series of records for Verve. On May the Music Never End, her 12th record for Verve, there are two big changes: the absence of Horn's longtime musical partner bassist Charles Ables, who passed away in 2001, and the addition of a pianist to take the place of Horn's quite capable playing. Ed Howard fills in admirably on bass and George Mesterhazy does the same on piano, except for on two tracks ("Maybe September" and "This is All I Ask") where Ahmad Jamal takes over. Horn's trademark sound is the sparse, languid torch song, with atmospheric piano chords and her gentle and soulful vocals caressing the notes as she slowly lets them ease into the listener's ear. Most of the album is in this downcast, nocturnal mood: the highlights are her smoldering version of the Jacques Brel-Rod McKuen song "If You Go Away," the bossa nova-influenced "Watch What Happens," and the heartbreaking and bleak "Ill Wind." She also does a very nice job with the Gordon Jenkins-penned "September of My Years"-style ballad "This Is All I Ask" and the emotional "May the Music Never End." These two tracks taken together almost sound like Horn saying goodbye to music and the world of jazz and will really bring a lump to the throat of Horn fans. She breaks up the somber mood with a few swinging tracks: the rollicking take on "Forget Me"; the lightly swinging "Take Love Easy," with some nice Roy Hargrove obbligatos; and the martial "Everything Must Change," which features one of Horn's most dramatic vocals and a wonderful moment three and a half minutes into the song where the tight rhythm bursts open and the band hits a big up-tempo groove with Horn soaring over top. The only real clunker here is her version of the Beatles' "Yesterday," a song that has been done just about every way possible. Here Horn cuts the tempo, adds some atmosphere, and actually manages to over sing the song. Her voice pushes at the outer reaches of her range, but her phrasing is strangely urgent and she sounds old for the first time. It is a rare misstep on an otherwise very good record by one of the great underrated jazz singers. If it is indeed her swan song, then she went out the same way she came in: as a true classic.

Ray Charles im Wandel seines Stils

Ray Charles, der Gründervater der Soulmusik, dessen Karriere ein halbes Jahrhundert andauerte, lässt sich nicht mit einer Handvoll Hits zusammenfassen, die jeder kennt. Er ist vor allem ein Meister des musikalischen Crossover, der High-End-Variante, die aus der Vermischung von Genres eine Kunst macht, indem sie sich dem einen annähert, um das andere besser zu erschließen. Ray Charles säkularisierte den Gospel, bereicherte den Blues, spielte Jazz, sang Country und kam dem Rock'n'Roll nahe. Ein Blick auf seinen einzigartigen Stil anhand der fünf genannten Genres.

Chris Connor, eine vergessene Stimme

Vielleicht war sie ja die größte Sängerin auf dem Gebiet des Cool Jazz? Fast 12 Jahre nach ihrem Dahinscheiden gilt Chris Connors Stimme nach wie vor als eine der wonnevollsten ihrer Generation. Anders gesagt, es gibt nicht nur Anita O’Day und June Christy…

Frank Zappa, in guten wie in besseren Zeiten

Je weiter Frank Zappas Tod am 4. Dezember 1993 in die Ferne rückt, desto grausamer spürt man seine Abwesenheit in der aktuellen Musikszene. Vergessen ist er zwar nicht, aber es gibt kaum solche, die ihm das Wasser reichen könnten. Bis heute gibt es keinen anderen, grenzenlos genialen Komiker wie Frank Zappa, denn seit nahezu drei Jahrzehnten hat es niemand wie er geschafft, größten musikalischen Anspruch mit hemmungslosem Humor in Einklang zu bringen.
