Drummer, Educator Wade Barnes Dies at 57
Was CEO/President of the Brooklyn Four Plus One
By Jeff Tamarkin

Wade Barnes, a drummer, composer, producer, bandleader, arranger, educator and executive, passed away March 3 a age 57. The cause and place of death were not reported. Barnes was founder of the Brooklyn Four Plus One, Inc., a nonprofit whose stated mission, according to the organization’s website, is “to bring the highest quality of America’s classical music [jazz] to all ages, races, ethnic groups and socioeconomic levels.”

Originally, the site states, the Brooklyn Four Plus One, Inc. “was a band organized by drummer and educator Wade Barnes in the mid 1990s. The band was comprised of native Brooklynites deeply rooted in America’s musical culture. The ensemble conducted performances, clinics and symposia for a variety of audiences.” The group was later renamed the Brooklyn Repertory Ensemble (B.R.E.) and is now comprised of 17 members and plays for schools and arts organizations, particularly in under-served communities.

Barnes, who received multiple music degrees from colleges and universities, is credited, according to his official biography, with “facilitating a holistic conception which incorporates the entire history of American music.” He led Wade Barnes and the Bottom Line (a 10-member ensemble) and Wade Barnes and Unit Structures. During his career he also performed with “Doc” Cheatham, Earle Warren, Dicky Wells, Howard McGhee; Jimmy Garrison, Bob Cranshaw, Archie Shepp, Sonny Fortune; Jon Faddis and others. In addition, Barnes created clinics, workshops and curricula for the New York City Public Schools.

Barnes appeared on numerous recordings with several ensembles.

R.I.P. Charly Hosenseidl the late great leader of Frankfurt Musikmesse Nachruf: Charly Hosenseidl http://www.tastenwelt.de/nachruf_charly_hosenseidl.0.html
L to R: Dr. Peters, Cordelia von Gymnich, Sabine Nold, Wilhelm Peter Hosenseidl bei seiner Verabschiedung als Musikmesse-Objektleiter (2003). – Jon Hammond

Wilhelm Peter „Charly“ Hosenseidl ist am 2. März in Folge einer schweren Erkrankung verstorben. Der ehemalige Objektleiter der Musikmesse Frankfurt und unermüdliche Motor der deutschen Entertainer-Szene hinterlässt eine kaum zu füllende Lücke. Die Branche und die Tastenwelt-Redaktion trauern um ihn.

Er war Musiker mit Leib und Seele: Wilhelm Peter Hosenseidl, Künstlername „Charly“, betrat mit 17 Jahren jene Bretter, die für den Künstler die Welt bedeuten – da­mals noch mit dem Akkordeon. Später verlegte er sich auf die Tanzmusik und sammelte bei den „Four Gentlemen“ zehn Jahre lang Banderfahrung, um dann mit Keyboard und Piano zunehmend solistisch tätig zu werden. Freilich im Nebenberuf, denn 1981 kam der gelernte Industriekaufmann zur Messe Frankfurt, wo er sechs Jahre später die Objektleitung der Musikmesse übernahm – die Chance seines Lebens, konnte er doch musikalische Leidenschaft und Beruf miteinander verbinden. „Was Besseres hätte mir gar nicht passieren können“, bekannte er einmal in einem Tastenwelt-Interview.

14 Mal leitete er
die Musikmesse

Insgesamt 14 Mal war Charly Hosenseidl für die Leitung der Musikmesse verantwortlich, ab 1995 auch für die ProLight + Sound. Ab Ende 2000 konzentrierte er seine Aktivitäten auf die Erweiterung der erfolgreichen Frankfurter Messekonzepte in Richtung Russland und China. 2003 zog sich Charly Hosenseidl mit 57 Jahren in die passive Altersteilzeit zurück, um als aktiver Vorruheständler mehr Zeit für seine Familie und die Musik zu haben. Dies war ihm aufgrund einer fortschreitenden Erkrankung leider nur wenige Jahre möglich. Am 2. März, zehn Tage vor Eröffnung der Musikmesse 2008, starb Charly Hosenseidl im Kreise seiner Angehörigen in Langenhain bei Frankfurt. Er hat eine Menge getan für die Musikalienbranche im allgemeinen und für die Entertainerszene im Besonderen. Auch zur Entstehung des Magazins Tastenwelt haben seine Ideen und Vorstellungen maßgeblich beigetragen. Und er stand Pate bei der Gründung von Entertainerclubs, deren Output wiederum nicht ohne Einfluss auf die Produktentwicklung seitens der Hersteller blieb.

Unermüdlich am Image
der Tanzmusiker gefeilt

Zudem wollte Hosenseidl dem angestaubten Begriff des Allein­unterhalters neues Leben einhauchen. Getrieben von diesem Ziel ließ er sich keine Gelegenheit entgehen, seinen Musikerkollegen ins Gewissen zu reden: Gut zu spielen alleine reiche nicht, wenn man auf Dauer in der Unterhaltungsmusik Erfolg haben wolle – dieses Credo vermittelte Hosenseidl regelmäßig bei Musiker­treffen wie der zur Tradition gewordenen Entertainer-Party auf der Musikmesse, einer auch in diesem Jahr wieder stark frequentierten Veranstaltung. Wir werden sie in Charly Hosenseidls Namen weiterführen und damit zu seinem Andenken ein Stück beitragen.

Lydia Pense and Cold Blood band sounded great today folks! Jon Hammond

Current personnel are Lydia Pense (vocals), Steve Salinas (keyboards), Steve Dunne (guitar), Mike Morgan (percussion), Evan Palmerston (bass), Rich Armstrong (trumpet, percussion), Rob Zuckerman (alto, tenor, baritone saxes) and Donny Baldwin (drums).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lydia_Pense
Lydia Pense (born Lydia Jane Pense in San Francisco, California on December 14, 1947) [1] is an American rock-soul-jazz singer who since 1969 has performed with the band Cold Blood. Her style has been compared to powerful singers including Janis Joplin (who recommended the band to Bill Graham for their first audition), Aretha Franklin and Teena Marie.
Pense’s mother, the former Miss Ramos,[1] was born in Madrid, Spain, while her father came from Nebraska, United States. While attending Sequoia High School in Redwood City, California at the age of 14, Pense started singing with a band called The Dimensions, with Guitarist Fred Tatman. She was a fan of Brenda Lee and was singing her songs, but the band, formed by Fred Tatman, Larry Hatch, Paul C Saenz, and Kerry Yates encouraged her to sing R&B in the style of James Brown, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, and Ray Charles.
Lydia joined Cold Blood in 1968.
Their initial four albums, Cold Blood, Sisyphus, First Taste of Sin (produced by Donny Hathaway), and Thriller remain their best known work. The band continues to record and perform today. The band separated in the late 1970s, and Pense suspended her career in the 1980s to raise her daughter before re-forming the group.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cold_Blood_(band)
Cold Blood is a long-standing soul-rock-jazz band founded by Larry Field in 1968 and originally based in the San Francisco East Bay area. They have also performed and recorded under the name “Lydia Pense and Cold Blood”, due to the popularity of their lead singer, Lydia Pense.
The band first came to prominence in 1969 when rock impresario Bill Graham signed them after an audition and they played the Fillmore West in San Francisco. Pense has been compared to Janis Joplin, and it was Joplin who recommended the audition to Graham.
The band has often been compared to another long-standing popular Northern California group, Tower of Power, and like Tower of Power they were rare in that they featured a horn section in addition to guitar, bass and drums. The Tower of Power horn players have performed with Cold Blood on a regular basis since the early 1970s. Skip Mesquite and Mic Gillette have been members of both Tower Of Power and Cold Blood. Their fan base also overlaps with the Sons of Champlin, although their musical styles are quite different.
Their initial four albums, Cold Blood (produced by David Rubinson), Sisyphus (produced by Fred Catero), First Taste of Sin (produced by Donny Hathaway), and Thriller (produced by David Rubinson) remain their best known work. The band disbanded in the late 1970s, reformed in the 1980s and stabilized with its current membership in the 1990s. Cold Blood continues to record and perform today, and some former band members such as Raul Matute (and some from Tower of Power) appear on the band’s most recent album.
Original band members were founder Larry Field (lead guitar), Lydia Pense (vocals), Danny Hull (tenor saxophone and songwriter), Larry Jonutz (trumpet), Pat O’Hara (trombone; born May 25, 1946 (?), died August 1977 of an overdose), Raul Matute (Hammond organ, piano, arranger and songwriter), Jerry Jonutz (baritone, alto and tenor saxophone), David Padron (trumpet), Rod Ellicott (bass), Paul C Saenz (guitar), and Frank Davis, who was replaced on drums by Sandy McKee (real name Cecil James Stoltie, born 12 July 1945, died 15 October 1995) during the Sisyphus sessions. Narada Michael Walden and Jonathan “Sugarfoot” Moffett both mention McKee on their short list of drummers most influential in their stylistic development.
Over the years there have been various incarnations of the band including singer/trumpet player Max Haskett (born 7 March 1947, died 15 September 1999, ex-Rubicon), Tower Of Power horn player Mic Gillette, Journey keyboardist Stevie “Keys” Roseman on Hammond B-3 organ, Sons Of Champlin drummer Jim Preston, guitar player Michael Sasaki, Tower Of Power guitarist Jeff Tamelier, Boz Scaggs horn player Tom Poole, Elvin Bishop sax player Bill Slais, bass player Michael White & others.

Cold Blood is featured playing live in Fillmore, a documentary of the last concerts at The Fillmore auditorium.

Theater am Turm
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theater_am_Turm
Das Theater am Turm (abgekürzt TAT) war ein städtisches Theater in Frankfurt am Main. Es wurde 1953 als Landesbühne Rhein-Main durch den Frankfurter Bund für Volksbildung gegründet und hatte 1963 bis 1995 seinen Sitz im ehemaligen Volksbildungsheim am Eschenheimer Tor. Der Name Theater am Turm spielte auf den Eschenheimer Turm an, einen Teil der früheren Frankfurter Stadtbefestigung.
Während der experimenta I wurde 1966 hier unter Leitung von Claus Peymann (Intendant 1965–1969) die legendäre Publikumsbeschimpfung von Peter Handke uraufgeführt. In den folgenden Jahren wurde das TAT durch die Nähe zur Studentenbewegung und zum Kampf gegen die Notstandsgesetze geprägt. 1969 wurde ein umfassendes Mitbestimmungsmodell eingeführt. Auf dem Programm standen nunmehr nicht nur Theateraufführungen, sondern auch Diskussionen, Vollversammlungen sowie Kurse in Marxismus und Tai-Chi.
In den siebziger Jahren war Rainer Werner Fassbinder für acht Monate Intendant des TAT. Die Aufführung seines 1974 entstandenen Stückes Der Müll, die Stadt und der Tod über den Frankfurter Häuserkampf wurde nach Protesten abgesagt, weil die darin vorkommende Figur des reichen Juden antisemitische Stereotypen bediene. Fassbinder verließ das Theater.
Nach einer vorübergehenden Schließung 1978/79 wurde das TAT umgebaut und 1980 mit neuem Konzept, aber nunmehr ohne eigenes Ensemble wieder eröffnet. Bis 1986 war es eine Spielstätte für freie experimentelle Gruppen und internationale Künstler wie die Tanzcompany von Vivienne Newport, danach entstanden zahlreiche internationale Gastinszenierungen…

Pocket Funk as heard on The Jon Hammond Show TV program on MNNTV and on Late Rent album – Behind The Beat http://behindthebeat.com/2004/12/jon-hammond-late-rent/ by Steve Rosenfeld “Jon Hammond says “the fingers are the singers.'” The latest CD from this exceptional and soulful Hammond organist is the proof. “Late Rent” draws on decades of great recording sessions and top live performances to showcase his own playing and many top jazz and funk artists. It shows why the Hammond organ is one of the most enduring electric instruments and why Hammond is one of its best players.”

Joe Morello His NAMM Oral History was completed on June 8, 2007
http://www.namm.org/library/oral-history/joe-morello
Joe Morello’s influential drumming style was showcased on the landmark Dave Brubeck recording of “Take Five.” Ever since, he has inspired generations of performers. Joe became an icon in the music product’s industry through his long associations with manufacturers as an endorsee, music retailers as a clinician, and publishers as an author of successful method books. He gave advice and lessons to all who ask, and was often known to be the last to leave a clinic – ensuring all questions have been
answered.

Instead of hearing aids, he had a lady who would repeat everything in to his ear – Jon Hammond
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Morello

Joseph Albert Morello (July 17, 1928 – March 12, 2011) was a jazz drummer best known for his 12½-year stint with The Dave Brubeck Quartet. He was frequently noted for playing in the unusual time signatures employed by that group in such pieces as “Take Five” and “Blue Rondo à la Turk”. Popular for its work on college campuses during the 1950s, Brubeck’s group reached new heights with Morello. In June 1959, Morello participated in a recording session with the quartet — completed by the alto saxophonist Paul Desmond and the bassist Eugene Wright — that yielded “Kathy’s Waltz” and “Three to Get Ready,” both of which intermingled 3/4 and 4/4 time signatures
Morello suffered from partial vision from birth,[3] and devoted himself to indoor activities. At six years old he began studying the violin, going on to feature three years later as soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, playing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, and again three years later.
At the age of 15 Morello met the violinist Jascha Heifetz and decided that he would never be able to equal Heifetz’s “sound”, so switched to drumming, first studying with a show drummer named Joe Sefcik and then George Lawrence Stone, author of the noted drum textbook Stick Control for the Snare Drummer. Stone was so impressed with Morello’s ideas that he incorporated them into his next book, Accents & Rebounds, which is dedicated to Morello. Later, Morello studied with Radio City Music Hall percussionist Billy Gladstone.
After moving to New York City, Morello worked with numerous notable jazz musicians including Johnny Smith, Tal Farlow, Stan Kenton, Phil Woods, Sal Salvador, Marian McPartland, Jay McShann, Art Pepper, Howard McGhee, and others. After a period playing in McPartland’s trio, Morello declined invitations to join both Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey’s bands, favoring a temporary two-month tour with the Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1955; Morello remained with Brubeck for well over a decade, only departing in 1968. Morello later became an in-demand clinician, teacher and bandleader whose former students include Danny Gottlieb, Max Weinberg, Rich Galichon, Phish drummer Jon Fishman, Gary Feldman, Patrick Wante, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons drummer Gerry Polci, Jerry Granelli, and Glenn Johnson.

Morello appeared in many Brubeck performances and contributed to over 60 albums with Brubeck. On “Take Five”, he plays an imaginative drum solo maintaining the 5/4 time signature throughout. Another example of soloing in odd time signatures can be heard on “Unsquare Dance”, in which he solos using only sticks without drums in 7/4 time. At the end of the track, he can be heard laughing about the “trick” ending. He also features on “Blue Rondo à la Turk”, “Strange Meadow Lark”, and “Pick-Up Sticks”.
During his career, Morello appeared on over 120 albums, 60 of which were with the Dave Brubeck Quartet. He authored several drum books, including Master Studies, published by Modern Drummer Publications, and also made instructional videos. Morello was the recipient of many awards, including Playboy magazine’s best drummer award for seven years in a row, and Down Beat magazine’s best drummer award five years in a row. He was elected to the Modern Drummer magazine Hall of Fame in 1988, the Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame in 1993, and was the recipient of Hudson Music’s first TIP (Teacher Integration Program) Lifetime Achievement award in June, 2010.[4]
Joe Morello died on March 12, 2011, at his home in Irvington, New Jersey. He was 82 years old. His death was announced on his website, although no cause of death was given — with Joe Morello

Lydia Pense and Cold Blood band sounded great today folks! Jon Hammond

Current personnel are Lydia Pense (vocals), Steve Salinas (keyboards), Steve Dunne (guitar), Mike Morgan (percussion), Evan Palmerston (bass), Rich Armstrong (trumpet, percussion), Rob Zuckerman (alto, tenor, baritone saxes) and Donny Baldwin (drums).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lydia_Pense
Lydia Pense (born Lydia Jane Pense in San Francisco, California on December 14, 1947) [1] is an American rock-soul-jazz singer who since 1969 has performed with the band Cold Blood. Her style has been compared to powerful singers including Janis Joplin (who recommended the band to Bill Graham for their first audition), Aretha Franklin and Teena Marie.
Pense’s mother, the former Miss Ramos,[1] was born in Madrid, Spain, while her father came from Nebraska, United States. While attending Sequoia High School in Redwood City, California at the age of 14, Pense started singing with a band called The Dimensions, with Guitarist Fred Tatman. She was a fan of Brenda Lee and was singing her songs, but the band, formed by Fred Tatman, Larry Hatch, Paul C Saenz, and Kerry Yates encouraged her to sing R&B in the style of James Brown, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, and Ray Charles.
Lydia joined Cold Blood in 1968.
Their initial four albums, Cold Blood, Sisyphus, First Taste of Sin (produced by Donny Hathaway), and Thriller remain their best known work. The band continues to record and perform today. The band separated in the late 1970s, and Pense suspended her career in the 1980s to raise her daughter before re-forming the group.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cold_Blood_(band)
Cold Blood is a long-standing soul-rock-jazz band founded by Larry Field in 1968 and originally based in the San Francisco East Bay area. They have also performed and recorded under the name “Lydia Pense and Cold Blood”, due to the popularity of their lead singer, Lydia Pense.
The band first came to prominence in 1969 when rock impresario Bill Graham signed them after an audition and they played the Fillmore West in San Francisco. Pense has been compared to Janis Joplin, and it was Joplin who recommended the audition to Graham.
The band has often been compared to another long-standing popular Northern California group, Tower of Power, and like Tower of Power they were rare in that they featured a horn section in addition to guitar, bass and drums. The Tower of Power horn players have performed with Cold Blood on a regular basis since the early 1970s. Skip Mesquite and Mic Gillette have been members of both Tower Of Power and Cold Blood. Their fan base also overlaps with the Sons of Champlin, although their musical styles are quite different.
Their initial four albums, Cold Blood (produced by David Rubinson), Sisyphus (produced by Fred Catero), First Taste of Sin (produced by Donny Hathaway), and Thriller (produced by David Rubinson) remain their best known work. The band disbanded in the late 1970s, reformed in the 1980s and stabilized with its current membership in the 1990s. Cold Blood continues to record and perform today, and some former band members such as Raul Matute (and some from Tower of Power) appear on the band’s most recent album.
Original band members were founder Larry Field (lead guitar), Lydia Pense (vocals), Danny Hull (tenor saxophone and songwriter), Larry Jonutz (trumpet), Pat O’Hara (trombone; born May 25, 1946 (?), died August 1977 of an overdose), Raul Matute (Hammond organ, piano, arranger and songwriter), Jerry Jonutz (baritone, alto and tenor saxophone), David Padron (trumpet), Rod Ellicott (bass), Paul C Saenz (guitar), and Frank Davis, who was replaced on drums by Sandy McKee (real name Cecil James Stoltie, born 12 July 1945, died 15 October 1995) during the Sisyphus sessions. Narada Michael Walden and Jonathan “Sugarfoot” Moffett both mention McKee on their short list of drummers most influential in their stylistic development.
Over the years there have been various incarnations of the band including singer/trumpet player Max Haskett (born 7 March 1947, died 15 September 1999, ex-Rubicon), Tower Of Power horn player Mic Gillette, Journey keyboardist Stevie “Keys” Roseman on Hammond B-3 organ, Sons Of Champlin drummer Jim Preston, guitar player Michael Sasaki, Tower Of Power guitarist Jeff Tamelier, Boz Scaggs horn player Tom Poole, Elvin Bishop sax player Bill Slais, bass player Michael White & others.

Cold Blood is featured playing live in Fillmore, a documentary of the last concerts at The Fillmore auditorium.

Theater am Turm
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theater_am_Turm
Das Theater am Turm (abgekürzt TAT) war ein städtisches Theater in Frankfurt am Main. Es wurde 1953 als Landesbühne Rhein-Main durch den Frankfurter Bund für Volksbildung gegründet und hatte 1963 bis 1995 seinen Sitz im ehemaligen Volksbildungsheim am Eschenheimer Tor. Der Name Theater am Turm spielte auf den Eschenheimer Turm an, einen Teil der früheren Frankfurter Stadtbefestigung.
Während der experimenta I wurde 1966 hier unter Leitung von Claus Peymann (Intendant 1965–1969) die legendäre Publikumsbeschimpfung von Peter Handke uraufgeführt. In den folgenden Jahren wurde das TAT durch die Nähe zur Studentenbewegung und zum Kampf gegen die Notstandsgesetze geprägt. 1969 wurde ein umfassendes Mitbestimmungsmodell eingeführt. Auf dem Programm standen nunmehr nicht nur Theateraufführungen, sondern auch Diskussionen, Vollversammlungen sowie Kurse in Marxismus und Tai-Chi.
In den siebziger Jahren war Rainer Werner Fassbinder für acht Monate Intendant des TAT. Die Aufführung seines 1974 entstandenen Stückes Der Müll, die Stadt und der Tod über den Frankfurter Häuserkampf wurde nach Protesten abgesagt, weil die darin vorkommende Figur des reichen Juden antisemitische Stereotypen bediene. Fassbinder verließ das Theater.
Nach einer vorübergehenden Schließung 1978/79 wurde das TAT umgebaut und 1980 mit neuem Konzept, aber nunmehr ohne eigenes Ensemble wieder eröffnet. Bis 1986 war es eine Spielstätte für freie experimentelle Gruppen und internationale Künstler wie die Tanzcompany von Vivienne Newport, danach entstanden zahlreiche internationale Gastinszenierungen…
