MUSIC INDUSTRY: No Old Wine in New Bottles: Remastering Does Mean New Sound Recording Copyright, Says 9th Circuit

All About Jazz -

The remastering of tracks has long created controversy in the music industry over whether these revampings necessitate the creation of a fresh copyright- a problematic notion to say the least. The 9th Circuit Court, however has decided a new coat of paint doesn't change things all that much. Guest post by Stephen Carlisle of NOVA Southeastern University...

RECORDING: Monday Recommendation: Luciana Souza

All About Jazz -

Luciana Souza, The Book Of Longing (Sunnyside) Returning to recording, Luciana Souza is inspired by poetry. The Book Of Longing finds her drawing inspiration from poets of two centuries and singing three new songs of her own. Bassist Scott Colley and Brazilian guitarist Chico Pinheiro accompany her, enhancing the album's moods, using counterpoint as commentary. Both solo with distinction. Colley is notably effective in Ms. Souza's 'These Things,' which has a nifty reference to Robert Frost. Pinheiro finds a rhythmic groove in Dickinson's 'We Grow Accustomed To The Dark' (1864). Ms. Souza's sources range from the 18th century to the 21st and include not only her work, but also Edna St. Vincent Millay, Emily Dickinson and the late singer-poet-novelist Leonard Cohen. Christina Rosetti's 'Remember' (1861) ends the album. It is a lyrical instruction for thinking -- or not thinking -- about her after she dies...

TECHNOLOGY: Just Because the Internet Didn't Implode Immediately, Doesn't Mean Killing Net Neutrality Was a Good Idea

All About Jazz -

Many may recall when the FCC ignored the pleas of just about everyone besides the telecom giants and opted to axe net neutrality, a decision which only went into effect as recently as June 11, and while Ajit Pai and friends are claiming the internet's continued functionality is proof dissenters fears were overhyped, the reality may be something quite different...

BIRTHDAY: Jazz Musician of the Day: Lester Young

All About Jazz -

All About Jazz is celebrating Lester Young's birthday today! Lester "Prez" Young was one of the giants of the tenor saxophone. He was the greatest improviser between Coleman Hawkins and Louis Armstrong of the 1920s and Charlie Parker in the 1940s. From the beginning, he set out to be different: He had his own lingo; In the Forties, he grew his hair out. The other tenor players held their saxophones upright in front of them, so Young held his out to the side... Read more...

OBITUARY: Jack Costanzo (1919-2018)

All About Jazz -

Jack Costanzo, whose fierce bongo playing added drama and heat to hundreds of recordings and performances by jazz, pop and Latin artists starting in the late 1940s before moving on the TV and film, died August 18. He was 98. Costanzo wasn't the first to record jazz on the bongos. The instrument first appeared on Latin 78s as early as 1925 and on Afro-Cuban recordings by Machito in 1941. He also wasn't the first to record on the bongos in the post-war era. That honor in the late 1940s belongs to a long list of superb Latin players, including Chano Pozo, Lorenzo Salan, Diego Ibarra, Ramon Rivera, Emanuel Vaharandes, Jose Mangual, Sabu Martinez, Manny Oquendo, Bill Alvarez and others...
