Remembering the Legends,- Music Therapy Time 2022, Steel Pulse

Steel Pulse are a roots reggae band from the Handsworth area of Birmingham, England. They originally formed at Handsworth Wood Boys School, and were composed of David Hinds (lead vocals, guitar), Basil Gabbidon (lead guitar, vocals), and Ronald McQueen (bass); along with Basil’s brother Colin briefly on drums and Mykaell Riley (vocals, percussion). Steel Pulse were the first non-Jamaican act to win the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album.

Island Records era (1977–1980)

Island Records era (1977–1980)
Their first release for Island was the “Ku Klux Klan” single, a tilt at the evils of racism, and one often accompanied by a visual parody of the sect on stage. By this time their ranks had swelled to include Selwyn Brown (keyboards), Steve “Grizzly” Nisbett (drums), Alphonso Martin (vocals, percussion) and Mykaell Riley (vocals). Their debut album, Handsworth Revolution (recorded in 1977 and released in early 1978), was part the evolution of roots reggae outside Jamaica. However, despite critical and moderate commercial success over three albums, the relationship with Island Records had soured by the advent of their third album, Caught You (released in the US as Reggae Fever).

The band made their US concert debut at the Mudd Club in New York in 1980.

Tom Terrell, who would later serve as their manager, was instrumental in masterminding a Steel Pulse concert on the night of Bob Marley’s funeral, which was broadcast live around the world from the 9:30 Club, 930 F Street, N.W., Washington, D.C., on 21 May 1981.

Mary Lou Williams , Motivational Bio 2022 – Saint Martin de Porres, Church Tribute!

Mary Lou Williams (born Mary Elfrieda Scruggs; May 8, 1910 – May 28, 1981) was an American jazz pianist, arranger, and composer. She wrote hundreds of compositions and arrangements and recorded more than one hundred records (in 78, 45, and LP versions). Williams wrote and arranged for Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman, and she was friend, mentor, and teacher to Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Tadd Dameron, Bud Powell, and Dizzy Gillespie.

In 1922, at the age of 12, she went on the Orpheum Circuit of theaters. During the following year she played with Duke Ellington and his early small band, the Washingtonians. One morning at three o’clock, she was playing with McKinney’s Cotton Pickers at Harlem’s Rhythm Club. Louis Armstrong entered the room and paused to listen to her. Williams shyly told what happened: “Louis picked me up and kissed me.

MARY LOU WILLIAMS: THE LADY WHO SWINGS THE BAND – AfricanFilm.com

In 1942, Williams left the Twelve Clouds of Joy, returning to Pittsburgh. She was joined there by her bandmate Harold “Shorty” Baker, with whom she formed a six-piece ensemble that included Art Blakey on drums. After getting engaged in Cleveland, Baker left to join Duke Ellington’s orchestra. Williams joined the band in New York City, and they traveled to Baltimore to be married. She traveled with Ellington and helped arrange several tunes for him, including “Trumpet No End” (1946), her version of “Blue Skies” by Irving Berlin.

Mary Lou Williams was an African American jazz pianist, composer, and arranger who wrote hundreds of compositions and arrangements and recorded over one hundred records. Williams was born as Mary Elfireda Scruggs on May 8, 1910 in Atlanta, Georgia, but grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

After her hiatus, her first piece was a Mass that she wrote and performed named Black Christ of the Andes (1963). Two short works, Anima Christi and Praise the Lord, were also released during this time. Williams made great efforts to perform his work in collaboration with the Youth Choir, including the “Mass of Mary Lou” held at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City in April 1975. The jazz musician played at the church for the first time. She established a charitable organization and opened thrift stores in Harlem, directing the proceeds, along with ten percent of her own earnings, to musicians in need. As a 1964 Time article explained, “Mary Lou thinks of herself as a soul musician — a way of saying that she never strays far from melody and the blues, but deals sparingly in gospel harmony and rhythm. “I pray with my fingers when I play,” she says. I achieve a good “soul sound” by touching people’s souls.

In the 1980 novel A Confederacy of Dunces, Ignatius Reilly contemplates praying to Martin for aid in bringing social justice to the black workers at the New Orleans factory where he works. And in music, the first track of jazz pianist Mary Lou Williams’s album Black Christ of the Andes is titled “St. Martin De Porres”.

There are several Spanish and Mexican works regarding his life in cinema and television, starring Cuban actor Rene Muñoz, most of them referring to his mixed race, his miracles and his life of humility. The best known movies are Fray Escoba (Friar Broom) (1963) and Un mulato llamado Martin (A mulatto called Martin) (1975).

Jerry Harris – Devotion , Influence and motivation – Bio & Quote

They say it wont for us again but they gonna wonder how it worked

Born Allan Harris in Portland, Jamaica, Jerry has since the age of 14 devoted his life to music. He was influenced by the life and playing style of his father who was a professional jazz and calypso musician on the hotel circuit in Jamaica.

The name Jerry was given to him by musican friends. They felt that Allan had a similar style to guitarist “Jah Jerry” of the Skatalites fame. His first regular gig as a guitarist/backing vocalist came in 1972 when he played with The Young.

Confusion, Accusation & Disaster its spreading all over the world!

His first regular gig as a guitarist/backing vocalist came in 1972 when he played with The Young Experience Band for 4 nights a week at Port Antonio Hotel and night club. From there, the band spent the next two years performing live concerts with artist such as U-Roy, Toots & The Maytals, and the Heptones.U-Roy Also in the band was Jerry’s friend, Junior Murvin who would later become famous for the classic “Police And Thieves.”

With this experience firmly under his belt, Jerry wanted to further his musical talents by performing solo with his own compositions. His first album I’m For You was released by Wackies Records. He continued to write, play, and arrange his own music which eventually lead him to produce the classic Spreading All Over album in 1987. Then came Rock This Session in 1990, Smile And Be Happy in 1991, all of which were released by Alpha Enterprise based in Japan.
