Teo Macero, 82, Record Producer, Dies



The article below comes directly from here NYTimes

Teo Macero, a record producer, composer and saxophonist most famous for his role in producing a series of albums by Miles Davis in the late 1960s and early 1970s, including editing that almost amounted to creating compositions after the recordings, died on Tuesday in Riverhead, N.Y. He was 82 and lived in Quogue, N.Y.

Alan Nahigian, 1998
Teo Macero
His death followed a long illness, his stepdaughter, Suzie Lightbourn, said.

Helping to build Miles Davis albums like “Bitches Brew,” “In a Silent Way” and “Get Up With It,” Mr. Macero (pronounced TEE-oh mah-SEH-roh) used techniques partly inspired by composers like Edgard Varèse, who had been using tape-editing and electronic effects to help shape the music. Such techniques were then new to jazz and have largely remained separate from it since. But the electric-jazz albums he helped Davis create — especially “Bitches Brew,” which remains one of the best-selling albums by a jazz artist — have deeper echoes in almost 40 years of experimental pop, like work by Can, Brian Eno and Radiohead.

Davis’s routine in the late 1960s was to record a lot of music in the studio with a band, much of it improvised and based on themes and even mere chords that he would introduce on the spot. Later Mr. Macero, with Davis’s help, would splice together vamps and bits and pieces of improvisation.

For example, Mr. Macero isolated a little melodic improvisation Davis played on the trumpet for “Shhh/Peaceful” on “In a Silent Way” and used it as the theme, placing it at the beginning and the end of the piece. Even live recordings he sometimes treated as drafts; the first track of Davis’s “Live at Fillmore East,” from 1970, contains a snippet pasted in from a different song.

Mr. Macero strongly believed that the finished versions of Davis’s LPs, with all their intricate splices and sequencing — done on tape with a razor blade, in the days before digital editing — were the work of art, the entire point of the exercise. He opposed the current practice of releasing boxed sets that include all the material recorded in the studio, including alternate and unreleased takes. Mr. Macero was not involved in Columbia’s extensive reissuing of Davis’s work for the label, in lavish boxed sets from the mid-’90s until last year.

Attilio Joseph Macero was born and raised in Glens Falls, N.Y. He served in the Navy, then moved to New York in 1948 to attend the Juilliard School of Music, where he studied with the composer Henry Brant. In 1953 he became involved with Charles Mingus in the cooperative organization called the Jazz Composers Workshop; he played in Mingus’s other groups and put out his own records on Debut Records, the label founded by Mingus and Max Roach.

While simultaneously working as a tenor saxophonist — with Mingus, Teddy Charles and the Sandole Brothers, among others — and composing modern classical music as well as working in the classical-to-jazz idiom then called Third Stream, he joined Columbia Records in 1957. He was first hired as a music editor; in 1959 he became a staff producer.

At Columbia he worked with artists like J. J. Johnson, Mahalia Jackson, Johnny Mathis, Thelonious Monk and Dave Brubeck, for whom he produced the famous album “Time Out.” He also produced Broadway cast albums like “A Chorus Line” and film soundtracks.

Mr. Macero left Columbia in 1975. He later worked with the singer Robert Palmer, the Lounge Lizards, Vernon Reid, D.J. Logic and others.

Besides Ms. Lightbourn, of Morristown, N.J., he is survived by his wife, Jeanne, of Quogue, N.Y., and his sister, Lydia Edwards of Sarasota, Fla., and Queensbury, N.Y.

Tony Williams Lifetime - New York - November 1969

-- Tony Williams Lifetime --

Tony Williams

01 - To Whom it May Concern
02 - Emergency
03 - Unknown Title
04 - A Famous Blues
05 - Something Spiritual




cassettes > PC (soundforge)> wav > Flac frontend level 8

date : November, 1969
length : 39 minutes



**** note ****
songs 1 & 2 are from the tape that was broadcast and most collectors have
songs 3,4,5 are off the unedited radio station master reel


Tony Williams Lifetime a 5 song radio broadcast from late
November 1969 the first 2 songs while not 100% are a lower gen
than what most collectors have and no noise reduction added or
any tweaking done (the person I got the tape from said they were
told the radio broadcast was from late November 1969)

songs 3 > 5 are a new find dubbed off the radio station master reel
my cassette is very low gen, I was told a search was made of the
radio station archives but the first 2 songs were not found.

***please*** Tweakers ...... do not tweak songs 3,4,5 as they are no more than 2 gens from the master reel
songs 1 and 2 are a different story


at the start of song 3 the " Unknown Title " there was a long loud beep of
the recording warning signal from the Polydor studio I shortened it to 2 seconds
and reduced the volume so you hear it but it should not bother anyone.


in the USA " Emergency " was released as 2 seperate LP's and it appears
Polydor to stimulate interest in the 2nd LP release gave a tape with
a couple of live tracks to a New York radio station ("Emergency" and
a new song the as yet unrecorded "To Whom it May Concern")
The radio station must have asked for more so they could play a
longer live broadcast and Polydor recorded Lifetime in the studio
and gave them this tape.

Whether all 5 songs are from the same session or 2 sessions or
a mix of live and studio will only be answered when someone writing
a Tony Williams discography has access to the Polydor recording session files.

Wellllllllllll... In celebration of my 100th posting, here we have a personal favorite. When I heard Sun Ra was going to play a block from my home, I couldn't sleep for weeks, wandering around in a stupor with anticipation. The show was sold out long in advance, with many waiting outside in the rain for a chance to hear a few bar's. The Bride only holds maybe 300 people, so this was very special indeed. My friends and I spent all day getting the head ready, and were lucky to be front and center on the makeshift bleacher. When the procession of dancers, jugglers and fire eaters ceased, the man himself was escorted to his keyboard. What followed was my fondest jazz memory, and i'm pleased to share it here with this WONDERFUL community. The quality is superb. Enjoy.

John Zorn and Big John Patton 1988-08-28



AS POSTED ON DIME HERE

Note: This is a corrected description and different from the info file.

John Zorn and company performing four long untitled tracks at Saalfelden Jazz Festival, Saalfelden, Austria. Featuring John Patton, James 'Blood' Ulmer and Bobby Previte. The disc I received sounds like a radio show that has had some commentary edited out as some tracks are cut, but only during the applause. Excellent performance and sound. Enjoy!

Also, pattontrader.com lists this date as being only three tracks; the first track might be from another date, the guitar playing sounds a bit different from on the other tracks but I will leave that up to better informed ears than mine. The bottom line is that this is great music and well worth having.

Soundboard recording, really great sound.

Important note :

I finally located the tape of the Basel show. Comparing this new tape, with the one i posted as Montreaux
7.1970 some months ago, and with the official released lp live Taste, live from Montreaux, well i found out that the one i posted as Montreaux is actually Basel and that this new Basel tape i found is 10 times better quality of the other one. I compared the Basel tape with the officially realesed live in Montreaux and all the versions of the songs are completely different and have completely different intros by Rory Gallagher......is it a little bit confusing but now i'm certain that all the tapes circulating as Montreaux are actually Basel, and the only Montreaux show existing is the officially released one....So my Montreaux tape was just labeled wrong...
since the set lists of Montreaux and Basel show are almost identical, with my first post, having the tape
labeled as Montreaux, i just removed the tracks that had been officially released on the live lp, without
doing a deep analisys, so my apologies for that.
