The Memphis Nighthawks - Jazz Lips mp3 flac

Over the years, there have been at least two short-lived jazz combos calling themselves the Memphis Nighthawks. The first recorded some 78s for Vocalion in 1932; the second named themselves after the first group and were active in Illinois in the '70s. And neither group was actually from Memphis; they simply liked the way the name sounded. The ‘70s combo is the one heard on Jazz Lips, which was recorded for Delmark in 1976 and 1977 and reissued on CD in 2009 (with five previously unreleased bonus tracks).

Memphis Nighthawks were a traditional jazz band based in Champaign, Illinois during the 1970s. Founded and led by Ron Dewar, from the School of Music at the University of Illinois, the Nighthawks performed compositions from the early days of jazz. The band members were university music students, for the most part. Under saxophonist Dewar's direction they brought to pre-1930 jazz compositions a precision born of studying classical and modern orchestral music.

The Memphis Nighthawks got together in Champaign-Urbana, IL, were members of the U. of I. Jazz Band and took their name from a 1932 recording though neither group came from Memphis. Ron DeWar (soprano sax, clarinet, C Melody sax) has since worked with pianist Judy Roberts. Co-founder Steve Jensen (trumpet) also co-founded the Jazz Members Big Band. I bought this album when it was first released in 1977 or thereabouts. I was enormously impressed then, and was fortunate to see the band live at the Holiday Inn Lake Shore Drive in Chicago on a snowy new year's eve in 1978. Their technical mastery and precision somehow blend into an organic, rollicking sound that's without compare.

The Memphis Nighthawks was a band founded by Ron Dewar and Steve Jensen, consisting mainly of students from the University of Illinois' jazz programme. They took their name from a 1932 recording group featuring Darnell Howard, although neither band actually came from Memphis. These recordings were made in 1976 and 1977 in Chicago and are here released on CD for the first time, with the last five tracks being previously unissued. Even though these recordings were made more than 30 years ago, this album feels far from antique.
