HERB GELLER
is one of those jazz musicians, that a long time ago turned their back on the - United States and settled down as expatriate musicians in Europe. He was born on November 2nd, 1928 in Los Angeles and christened Herbert Arnold Geller. His mother played piano in a silent film theatre and she encouraged him to learn an instrument. When he was eight years old, his father bought him a second hand alto saxophone and he started to take lessons. Later he studied clarinet and piano. After he had heard the band of the multi-instrumentalist Benny Carter in Los Angeles, Geller decided that jazz would be his profession. That was in 1944. During his time at high school he had already begun to play in clubs. Joe Venuti, who had made the violin popular in jazz, gave him a job for two weeks in San Diego. The year was 1946. In 1949 Geller went to New York where he played with, among others, Claude Thornhill and Lucky Millinder. He married the pianist Lorraine Walsh and they moved back to the West Coast in 1950. In the fifties Geller became one of the most important alto sax players in the West Coast style next to Bud Shank and Lennie Niehaus. He worked with Billy May, Shorty Rogers, Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All Stars, Chet Baker as well as Maynard Ferguson and produced several albums under his • own name on which his wife is also heard on piano. Lorraine Geller died in 1958. She was only 30 years old, and Herb returned again to the East Coast. He played with Benny Goodman and Louis Bellson and co-operated temporarily
with the drummer Shelly Manne whom he knew from Los Angeles. Herb Geller emigrated in 1962 and arrived in Hamburg in 1965. He later belonged to the NDR Big Band for many years and taught at the University for Music.
Lorraine and Herb
There is very little to tell about their life. We know that Lorraine Winifred Walsh was born on the 11th September 1928 in Portland and that she began her career as a pianist with a girl band going by the touching name of "Sweethearts of Rhythm". Is it important to know that the "Sweethearts" were conducted by Anna Mae Winburn? Or that Lorraine had worked together with Jerry Wald and Bonnie Wetzel? Well, hardly. It is far more important to find out what her contribution to jazz was in her short life, including the few years with Herb, and what she has achieved. The recordings, programmatically titled "The Gellers" are best suited to answer these questions.
She moved with Herb to California after they had met and married in New York. The young pianist can be heard on various albums of West Coast musicians from the fifties, for example together with her husband, in the band of trumpeter Shorty Rogers. Lorraine also played at a jam session of the Lighthouse All Stars - among others Chet Baker, Bud Shank & Max Roach - with Miles Davis in 1953. The contribution of Miles by the way was something, as a critic wrote, his admirers should better forget.
Almost every jazz pianist names Art Tatum, when he is asked who his role model is, and Lorraine Geller was no exception on this point. But bebop musician Bud Powell and hardbop pianist Horace Silver, who inspires his fans with his bluesy sounding soul jazz, are also among her favourites. When the album „The Gellers" was recorded in April 1955, she had already found her own style. She - could easily exist next to her more experienced West Coast partner.
Herb Geller played in New York with Claude Thornhill, at the time he met Lorraine. After he had given up the job with Thornhill, Billy May brought Geller into his own band that performed three weeks at the Paramount Theatre. Geller played second alto sax, next to one of his idols, Willie Smith. When Smith left the band, Geller became number one on alto.
After the three weeks in the Paramount Theatre the band went to Los Angeles, where Billy May had organized an engagement at the Hollywood Palladium. Four weeks later it ended, but Geller, who enjoyed the music Shorty Rogers, Bud Shank and Chet Baker were playing, decided to stay in California. With his apparently effortless technique, his clean singing sound on the alto and his melodic, swinging improvisations he became one of the central figures of West Coast jazz. At the "Lighthouse", a Jazz Club in Los Angeles area, Geller then worked with all the important musicians of that period.
But above all Geller formed his own quartet including Lorraine. Several LP's were released with various groups and they were among the best that Geller
had recorded. For the album "The Gellers" he had won over two aspiring young West Coast musicians, bass player Keith Moore (Red) Mitchell and drummer Mel Lewis.
Red Mitchell, born 1927, was one of the busiest studio musicians on the West Coast. He was a solid rhythm bass player with a strong sound, who was very impressive with his swinging solos. He had played with Gerry Mulligan and Red Norvo before joining Gellers quartet. As a Gl in Germany in 1947, so the story goes, Mitchell had traded twelve cartons of sought after American cigarettes for a bass that his younger brother Gordon took over a few years later. Red obviously liked the instrument so much that he bought a new bass in 1954 during a tour with Red Norvo in Germany, this time, however, for cash. When "The Gellers" was recorded Geller gave him ample space to express his solo skills on his new German bass.
The drummer, the then 26 year old Mel Lewis, had already gained experience in larger formations. He had played in, among others, the band of Ray Anthony and was, when Geller brought him into the studio, under contract with Stan Kenton. At the same time he was much in demand as a studio musician. One decade later Mel Lewis (baptized Melvin Sokoloff) and trumpeter Thad Jones organized a big band that performed regularly at the New York Village Vanguard and became famous world wide.
Geller had selected for his Quartet LP several of his own compositions, but also included standards such as "Come Rain Or Come Shine" and "Bewitched." Of course the alto dominates, tremendously swinging through fast and slow titles alike, and the music gets real funky when Geller plays "Blues In The Night". Lorraine and Red Mitchell play exciting solos.
Herb Geller has always had a precise notion of what jazz is. "When you play, you have to compose", he said, "and that is very difficult because you cannot erase what you have played". For him the melody was always important, and therefore he has later, after years of experience, expressed words of criticism towards younger musicians. He has often observed a kind of Olympic competition, he said: How long, how high and how quick can one play? And that is why the musical content is neglected.
When Lorraine died in 1958, Herb played with Benny Goodman, and Benny behaved splendidly, contrary to the horror stories that were sometimes told about the bandleader. He even gave him a new sax. Geller went on tour a few times with Goodman, but in Los Angeles the performing possibilities became scarce for jazz musicians and less records were being recorded.
It was his friend Stan Getz who in 1961 suggested to try his luck in Europe. After some delays Geller followed the advice and landed after many detours in Hamburg, where he played 28 years in the NDR Big Band and taught successfully at the Hochschule fuer Musik.
 
 
Об альбоме (сборнике)
"THE GELLERS" is the significant title of this LP; significant because it points up the existence of one of the newest and most important musical-and-matri-monial teams in jazz.
All through jazz history, back as far as the days of Louis and Lil Armstrong in the early 1920s, there have been husband-and-wife alliances that produced memorable musical results. In the 1930s the best-known team was that of Red Norvo and Mildred Bailey. The 1940s produced similar matings involving Mary Lou Williams and Harold Baker, Lee Wiley and Jess Stacy, Frances Wayne and Neal Hefti. There is every reason to assume that Lorraine and Herb Geller will show themselves capable of following in those distinguished footsteps. Herb Geller is that rarity among west coast jazzmen, a native Los Angeleno. Born November 2, 1928, he started on the saxophone at the age of eight, later studying clarinet and piano. Following the customary route from high school band into professional union outfits, he made an early start in the big time, working in 1946 with an outfit led by veteran violinist Joe Venuti. Later band affiliations included Jimmy Zito in 1948, Jack Fina in '49; Lucky Millinder, Jerry Wald and Claude Thornhill in 1950. It was while he was with Thornhill in New York that he settled in the east for a while, married Lorraine and then decided it was time for them to try their luck on the California scene.
By this time Herb had developed such an exceptional facility on bis horn that he had no difficulty making bis entry into the elite inner circles of the Los Angeles music world. Before long he was working with Billy May (1951), Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All Stars and Shorty Rogers ('52-53), Chet Baker and Maynard Ferguson ('53-54).
Herb cites Art Tatum and Charlie Parker as bis all-time favorite musicians. His wide range of tastes is reflected in his list of preferred saxophonists. In addition to Parker they include Benny Carter, who was his first inspiration; Sonny Stitt, Sonny Rollins, Johnny Hodges, Willie Smith, Stan Getz, Al Cohn, Zoot Sims and Jackie McLean. They have one important element in common despite the variety of styles, and it is reflected in Herb's own work: all of them pay homage to the importance of the beat.
Lorraine Winifred Walsh Geller is a northwesterner, born in Portland, Oregon, September 11, 1928. Most of her professional experience was gained on the road with the Sweethearts of Rhythm, an all-girl band then under the direction of Anna Mae Winburn. After traveling with this group from 1949 to 1952, she settled in New York, gigged with Jerry Wald and worked briefly as a duo with bassist Bonnie Wetzel. During the past two years in Los Angeles she has played with all kinds of units, round and square, American and Latin, but hopes from now on to work exclusively with Herb in their own quartet. Lorraine names Tatum, Bud Powell and Horace Silver as her favorites - choices that are clearly reflected in her very modern, swinging solo lines. In this LP she has two numbers all to herself; one of them, Lore, displays a variety of moods and a dramatic sense that none of her previous recordings had revealed. As on Herb Geller's previous LP (Herb Geller Plays, EmArcy MG26045) the material used in this set is a judicious blend of original compositions and standard tunes suitable for the Geller brand of modern improvisation. There has been a change of personnel, however, in the other half of the quartet. At the drums this time we find Mel Lewis, a rapidly rising young West Coast percussion expert who has attracted much favorable comment through his recent performances with the Stan Kenton orchestra. On bass is Red Mitchell, considered by musicians, fans and critics alike to be perhaps the finest young exponent of the instrument in jazz today. Featured in the past couple of years with the Gerry Mulligan and Red Norvo groups, Red can be heard in this LP playing several solos. The superb sound he manages to draw from the bass is due mainly to his own fabulous technique and also to the fact that while touring Europa with Norvo in 1954 he bought a bass fiddle in Germany of which he is justifiably proud. Among the most interesting results of the collaboration between the Gellers and their two teammates here is their treatment of the fine old Fats Waller tune, I've Got A Feeling I'm Falling. Notice the ingenious rhythmic twists they worked out together for the last chorus.
The Gellers' choice of standard tunes is as resourceful as the treatment they offer them. Come Rain Or Come Shine, for example, is taken at a medium tempo, in contrast with the conventional slow conception. Herb, who sounds unusually Charlie Parker-ish on this one swings like mad, and Red Mitchell has an entire chorus. Blues In The Night displays Herb in his "funky" blues groove, while Lorraine and
Red settle comfortably into a similar groove for their solo passages.
Another highlight is Suppertime, the wonderful Irving Berlin song from As Thousands Cheer. Rarely played by jazzmen, it provides a vehicle for some intensely emotional work by Herb. An extraordinary example of Herb's ability to swing, even without any accompaniment whatever, is provided in the second chorus of Arapahoe, when he takes two sixteen-bar solo breaks that are packed with rhythmic excitement. There are many other enchanting musical moments throughout this LP - the bright stop-time two-beat effects in the theme of Two Of A Kind, the unexpected verse-and-chorus treatment of Bewildered, the rousing rhythmic reception accorded to If I Were A Bell- but the simplest way to discover them is to stop reading and start listening - the Gellers are waiting to wail.

Доп. информация: Membran presents a 20 CD series of jazz productions that were originally released in "long play" format 12-inch vinyl believed to have gone missing. These classics, gems and long-lost rarities were from selected sessions from the beginning of the 1950's, when musicians first started taking advantage of the revolutionary possibility of extended improvising on longer titles - which is why the series contains many jam sessions and superstars. Booklets contain discographical details, which were often missing from the original LP covers.
