Discogs Blog Hüsker Dü: The Top 10 Most Collected Vinyl

Word broke today that Hüsker Dü drummer and co-songwriter Grant Hart passed away after a battle with cancer. He was 56. Hart was instrumental in the legendary band’s vibe and songs. The word “legendary” is thrown around in a cavalier fashion these days, but Hüsker Dü deserves it. As Dave Grohl once said, “No Hüsker […]

This year’s Write Stuff music journalism course will return for its milestone 15th edition, with workshops held at the Southbank Centre during the EFG London Jazz Festival‘s opening and closing weekends, on 11-12 November and 18-19 November. Founded and organised by Jazzwise and festival producers Serious, the Write Stuff, gives new jazz and improv music writers a valuable free opportunity to work with professional journalists to improve their writing skills, develop an understanding of music criticism and the workings of the music press and the blogosphere, as well as getting to see a bunch of great concerts! As the course marks its 15th birthday it will concentrate its focus on bringing on a new generation of younger writers aged 18-25, who will attain an Arts Award qualification following a successful completion of the course.

This year, for the first time, The Write Stuff participants will be gaining a recognised qualification for their work on the programme. By developing their writing skills, attending events and meeting inspirational speakers, they will gain a Bronze Arts Award, Level 1 on the Regulated Qualifications Framework. They will work with an adviser who will support them in creating a portfolio of their own creative work, including reviews of the concerts they attend. The award is great experience for emerging journalists in leading their own written practice, and is a widely recognised qualification to help young writers on their next steps.

The workshops will include sessions on feature writing and live reviews by Jazzwise writer and BBC broadcaster Kevin Le Gendre; an insight into the history and development of the UK jazz and music press with Jazzwise editor in chief Jon Newey; and a workshop on writing and creating content for digital media with Jazzwise editor Mike Flynn with Radio 3’s Late Junction presenter Fiona Talkington as the session’s special guest interviewee. The course will also feature input from other writers and jazz industry figures.

Several Write Stuff participants have gone on to have pieces published in The Guardian, The Wire and Jazzwise as well as work within the wider jazz and broadcasting industry. This year’s participants will have their work posted on both the Jazzwise and festival’s websites, and one review considered to be of particular merit will be published in a subsequent issue of Jazzwise.

If you are interested in participating in the Write Stuff, please submit by email a 300-word review of a gig/concert that you have seen recently, together with a CV and full contact details to learning@serious.org.uk by 10 October 2017 with ‘The Write Stuff 2017’ in the subject line.

Applicants must be aged 18 to 25 and be available in London on the following dates: Friday 10 November (evening); Saturday 11 – Sunday 12 November and Saturday 18 – Sunday 19 November.

Jazzwise News

Fast emerging US progressive jazz seven-piece Holophonor are set to release their second album, Light Magnet, on the World Galaxy label on 8 October. The band formed in 2012 following their selection for the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance, where they met and studied under the guidance of jazz legends including Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter. It was the latter former Miles Davis collaborator and Weather Report founder, who was recommended by none other than Blue Note boss Don Was to produce the band’s interstellar sophomore album that combines free-flowing modal grooves, tough solos and long-form compositions with compelling results.

All this was directed by Shorter who had the group record some of the music in 45-minute intervals to find the perfect takes within, the resulting music primed with energy and invention usually captured in concert not in the studio. Holophonor features Eric Miller (trombone), Mike Cottone (trumpet), Josh Johnson (alto sax), Diego Urbano (vibraphone), Miro Sprague (piano), Dave Robaire (bass), and Jonathan Pinson (drums) all of whom appear on the album, Light Magic.

Mike Flynn

Jazzwise is pleased to present a first listen to the first single from the album ‘I Miss You’

This day in music On this Day September 14, 2011

It was reported that a Swedish
Bob Dylan fan had been arrested for singing Bob Dylan songs outside his ex-girlfriends house. The love-sick man had also cobbled together a group of five other men to serve as vocal accompaniment for the late-night live performance, each of who donned hoodies with their hoods up. But soon after the man began to serenade his ex, who had previously taken out a restraining order against him, she called the police, leaving 50-year-old guitarist blowin in the wind. ‘I had the idea that I’d play a Bob Dylan song for her,’ the man told police. (No word on which song, unfortunately.)
