Volume 14 (2022)

The articles presented in Volume 14 of Current Research in Jazz are concerned with the music of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.

The association of trumpeter Clifford Brown and pianist-composer Tadd Dameron was brief but significant. For a brief time, Dameron gathered an ensemble with some of the most important young players of a new lyrical style of bebop, including saxophonists Gigi Gryce and Benny Golson. This article expands upon and corrects previous research, revealing new details about this fascinating period of transition.

The late, great saxophonist Pharoah Sanders accomplished a rare feat in achieving popular success with post-Coltrane avant garde jazz. The specifics of his chart standings, album by album, are enumerated here.

The final article in this volume is the third installment in a continuing series of chronologies documenting the day-to-day performance activities of trumpeter-bandleader Maynard Ferguson and his orchestra.
