Randy Weston biography
After contributing six decades of musical direction and genius, Randy Weston remains one of the world's foremost pianists and composers today, a true innovator and visionary.
Encompassing the vast rhythmic heritage of Africa, his global creations musically continue to inform and inspire.
"Weston has the biggest sound of any jazz pianist since Ellington and Monk, as well as the richest most inventive beat," states jazz critic Stanley Crouch, "but his art is more than projection and time; it's the result of a studious and inspired intelligence...an intelligence that is creating a fresh synthesis of African elements with jazz technique".
Autobiography of Randy Weston "African Rhythms": http://www.randyweston.info/randy-weston-autobiography.html
Randy Weston's latest recordings:
The Storyteller, Weston's first recording with the whole African Rhythms ensemble since 2002. Recorded live at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, the set features drummer Lewis Nash with members of Weston's regular quintet: trombonist Benny Powell; alto saxophonist TK Blue; bassist Alex Blake; and percussionist Neil Clarke.
Zep Tepi, his first trio album in many years. The 10 songs on this album reflect the arc of his musical journey from: old favorites to new works
Randy Weston Live in St. Lucia. A live registration of the Randy Weston African Rhythms Quintet.
Ancient Future is a 2 disc solo piano recording that combines 16 solo piano recordings with 7 solo piano recording from 1984 that was released as Blue on 1750 Arch Records produced by Thomas Buckner. Ancient Future is a meditation on music's origins.
"I thought about Osiris," Weston recalled, "when he was assigned to teach man about civilization and he used music to do it."
Spare, contemplative, " Ancient Future " is evocative of William Grant Still's "Africa (A Poem for Orchestra in Three Movements - 1928)".
The 1990's witnessed a string of recordings on Verve Records that exhibit Randy Weston’s pioneering musical aspiration.
SPIRIT! The power of music 1999, Randy Weston African Rhythms Quintet and the master Gnawa musicians of Morocco was released. "What was so wonderful was that we had these three religions, Christianity, Islam and Yoruba, in music and the church was just packed with people. It was so spiritual, all this wonderful music together. So it was quite, quite the evening, one I’ll never forget.”
Khepera saw the release in 1998, in which Randy Weston makes the connection between African and Chinese music,
Earth Birth saw the release in 1997, featuring Randy Weston with The Montreal String Orchestra.
In 1996, Saga saw the release of the critically acclaimed recording.
Volcano Blues in 1993, Randy Weston teams up with long-time collaborator Melba Liston and criss-crosses the Atlantic chronicling the originations and destinations of the genre of African-American Music.
The Splendid Master Gnawa musicians of Morocco was recorded in 1992. Never in the history of Moroccan culture have their ever been nine hag'houges (guinbres) together with two percussionists. Each master sang his own song; after each one finished another continued. It was a historic moment.
Randy Weston's musical odyssey is another installment in an already amazing body of work.
In 1991, he told the story of the roots of the blues on Spirits of our Ancestors. The 2CD set was hailed for its concept as well as its musicianship.
Robert Palmer wrote in Rolling Stone, "SPIRITS! is the kind of 'jazz' record that, like Miles' KIND OF BLUE, connects with anyone who hears it. Listen up".
The culmination of Randy Weston’s rich musical offerings has resulted in the following awards:
In 2012 Colby College honored him with the honorary degree "Doctor of Music"
In 2011 Fellow by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation
In 2011 Moroccan King Mohammed VI's Honor - for his commitment to Morocco's Gnawa Music Tradition
In 2009 Randy Weston was added to the "ASCAP Jazz Wall of Fame"
In 2006 Brooklyn College honored him with the honorary degree "Doctor of Music"
In 2003 New York University honored him with two weeks artist-in-residence and tribute concert
In 2001 He received the Jazz Masters Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts
In 2000 He received the Arts Critics and Reviewers Ass. of Ghana, Black Music Star Award
In 1999 Harvard University honored him with a 1 week residency and tribute concert
In 1997 He received The French Order Of Arts And Letters
In 1995 The Montreal Jazz Festival gave him a 5 night tribute.
In 1999, 1996 and 1994 he also won Composer of the year from Downbeat Magazine
Randy Weston, born in Brooklyn, New York in 1926, didn't have to travel far to hear the early jazz giants that were to influence him. Though Weston cites Count Basie, Nat King Cole, Art Tatum, and of course, Duke Ellington as his other piano heroes, it was Monk who had the greatest impact. "He was the most original I ever heard," Weston remembers. "He played like they must have played in Egypt 5000 years ago."
Randy Weston’s first recording as a leader came in 1954 on Riverside Records Randy Weston plays Cole Porter - Cole Porter in a modern mood. It was in the 50's when Randy Weston played around New York with Cecil Payne and Kenny Dorham that he wrote many of his best loved tunes, "Saucer Eyes," "Pam's Waltz," "Little Niles," and, "Hi-Fly." His greatest hit, "Hi-Fly," Weston (who is 6' 8" :!:) says, is a "tale of being my height and looking down at the ground.
Randy Weston has never failed to make the connections between African and American music. His dedication is due in large part to his father, Frank Edward Weston, who told his son that he was, "an African born in America." "He told me I had to learn about myself and about him and about my grandparents," Weston said in an interview, "and the only way to do it was I'd have to go back to the motherland one day."
In the late 60's, Weston left the country. But instead of moving to Europe like so many of his contemporaries, Weston went to Africa. Though he settled in Morocco, he traveled throughout the continent tasting the musical fruits of other nations. One of his most memorable experiences was the 1977 Nigerian festival, which drew artists from 60 cultures. "At the end," Weston says, "we all realized that our music was different but the same, because if you take out the African elements of bossa nova, samba, jazz, blues, you have nothing..........
To me, it's Mother Africa's way of surviving in the new world."

review by Thom Jurek
This live concert was a reunion celebration between pianist/composer Randy Weston and the Gnawa Master Musicians of Morocco, who recorded together eight years before for the Verve album The Splendid Master Gnawa Musicians of Morocco.
It took place in Brooklyn in September of 1999 and is a remarkable document. The program is kicked off with a Weston solo feature followed by trio and quintet pieces (including bassist Alex Blake, trombonist Benny Powell, percussionist Neil Clarke, and flutist and saxophonist Talib Kibwe), before the Gnawa Musicians of Marrakech and the Gnawa Musicians of Tanger join the proceedings.
Each grouping is given a solo piece expressing the musicians' individual gifts as performers. Weston's long piano solo, "Receiving the Spirit," is augmented by his band in various settings before Blake and Clarke work in a trio setting called "Hag'Houge" and perform a stunning duet of Pan-African and Latin rhythms. This leads into long works by each group of Gnawa musicians before all the ensembles close the concert with a 17-minute traditional piece entitled "Lalla Mira."
It is on this last selection that the listener realizes that, in spite of the consummate delight at what has transpired already, the best was saved for last: these three groupings of musicians as an ensemble and as improvising soloists transcend all cultural barriers and come together to form something truly new, haunting, and full of beauty, power, and transformation. It is as if the "sound" that comes from the stage were the elevation of a single prayer being offered simultaneously not only by those performing, but by the audience as well. Listening to this concert on a CD player does not protect one from being enveloped by this experience, this sacred moment in which all literally becomes one. The level of communication is not to be evaluated because it is total. Everything is symbiotic and automatic; boundaries do not dissolve — they cease to exist.
This set goes so much farther than Weston's previous studio recording that this is the only one that now matters. — AMG
