Ce film historique de Françoise Pujol Trio en concert à l’intérieur de la radio France Inter est la première fois qu’un appareil a été autorisé à filmer à l’intérieur de ce studio de radio. L’homme caméra n’est autre que Jon Hammond. Un merci très spécial à André Francis Producteur Jazz Radio grande!
This marks the 20th anniversary of this wonderful concert, yes it was 20 years ago folks! Incredible playing by these musicians – Francoise Pujol who is my personal favorite pianist in France today – Jazz and Classical. Along with her emerging star musicians: Bassist Richard Bona the phenom bass player born in Cameroon and now living in Brooklyn, and the very tasteful drumming (and sometimes explosive!) of Francis Lassus of Paris.
S’il vous plaît profiter de cette radio France Inter concert présenté par Jon Hammond.
Les gens l’attention de New York: Françoise Pujol et sa bande seront en provenance de Paris pour jouer 2 concerts le 8 Septembre et le 10, je suis honoré d’être un invité spécial lors d’une partie de son concert d’orgue Hammond avec Françoise et sa bande. Nous espérons vous y voir! Pour plus d’informations:

ANDRE FRANCIS, MONSIEUR JAZZ
http://www.franceculture.fr/emission-mythologie-de-poche-de-la-radio-andre-francis-monsieur-jazz-2011-08-23

Il y a un peu plus d’un an, dans Les Passagers de la nuit, on pouvait entendre Les Mythologies de poche de la radio, petits et grands dialogues autour des archives et considérations radiophoniques… Nous vous proposons cet été 25 nouvelles Mythologies de poche de la radio pour donner à entendre la radio et ceux qui la font.
Nous recevons aujourd’hui André Francis, homme de radio, producteur et programmateur de concerts et de festivals.
50 ans de jazz, et plus encore. André Francis commence à parler de jazz à St Germain des prés, quelque temps après la Libération, au Club d’Essai de la Radiodiffusion. Il ne cessera jamais, même après sa retraite. On l’entend ce soir, en pleine forme, et dans ses archives, parfois en compagnie de Boris Vian lui-même. Et on apprendra aussi comment André Francis a fait changer ses propositions sur les ondes, selon les évolutions du jazz : free, cool, hard bop… On finit l’émission par un morceau d’anthologie enregistré en 1964 par André Francis et son équipe à Juan-les-Pins en plein air, où Ella Fitzgerald a maille à partir avec un criquet !

La grande Histoire du jazz (5/5) avec André Francis
André Francis, qui a été pendant plusieurs décennies le “Monsieur Jazz” de Radio France (sur France Inter et France Musique), occupe intelligemment sa retraite : il vient de concocter en 100 CD (125 heures d’écoute…) une “Grande Histoire du Jazz” couvrant le premier demi-siècle de cette musique.
Publiée en 4 coffrets de 25 CD couvrant chacun une période cohérente de l’histoire du jazz, cette “encyclopédie” s’avère passionnante par la pertinence subjective de ses choix et les textes qui les accompagnent.

Pour l’occasion, André Francis est invité à passer cette semaine de fête avec nous pour commenter lui-même ses choix au micro d’Open Jazz.

Une ballade amoureuse autour de quelques chefs d’œuvres du jazz.

Merci Beaucoup George Whitman Shakespeare and Company bookstore in Paris December 12, 1913 – December 14, 2011 from Jon Hammond

12/15/2011 New York, NY — R.I.P. George Whitman founder of Shakespeare & Co. Book Shop in Paris, I shot this photo of George’s best friend Lawrence Ferlinghetti the Poet in front of George’s shop when I met him and Lawrence on my first journey to Paris 1981. The child is George’s daughter Sylvia, she is grown up now and runs the shop, she will carry on for George there in St. Michel Paris – Jon Hammond *note: thanks / merci beaucoup for all the great Sunday teas 4PM-6PM I attended at your apartment when I was living in Paris George! JH

Photo by Jon Hammond – Lawrence Ferlinghetti and young Sylvia Whitman in front of Shakespeare & Company book shop in St. Michel Paris with umbrella, photo by Jon Hammond circa 1981:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Whitman

Whitman founded his bookstore in 1951 and named it Le Mistral, then later named it after Sylvia Beach’s earlier Paris bookstore “Shakespeare and Company”.[3] His shop, located at 37 rue de la Bûcherie in Paris, was opened in August 1951 (two years before a sister bookshop City Lights was opened in San Francisco by Lawrence Ferlinghetti) by George Whitman with an inheritance from his aunt. He called the shop “Le Mistral” after his first French girlfriend. From the very first night he allowed travellers, young writers, poets and artists to lodge in exchange for a hand in cleaning the shop, building shelves and selling books. Sylvia Beach, whose famous shop was on 12, rue de l’Odéon, was still in Paris and came to Le Mistral to see the writers of the new generation, whom Anaïs Nin called Xerox artists,[citation needed] read aloud their new work. Whitman modeled his shop after Sylvia Beach’s. As it was the only free English-language lending library in Paris, the Beats who arrived at the Beat Hotel on rue Git-le-Coeur quickly found their way to the small bookshop and made a place for themselves there. In 1962, Sylvia Beach died, willing to Whitman a good deal of her private books and the rights to the name Shakespeare and Company. In 1964, Le Mistral was renamed Shakespeare and Company. Whitman named his daughter, born in 1981, after his bibliophilic predecessor; Sylvia Whitman took over the running of the shop in 2003 at age 22.[4]
Whitman allowed young travellers to stay in the residential quarters of his rue de la Bûcherie premises (specifically published writers); and one was also encouraged to read a book a day during your stay and were asked for two hours work as contribution to the running of the shop. All Whitman asked of his guests is to provide a short “biography” and photograph and work a short period in the shop. On Sunday mornings he traditionally cooked his guests a pancake breakfast, brewing up a thin ersatz “syrup” out of some burnt sugar and water.
Whitman began to receive international notice when a documentary titled Portrait of a Bookstore as an Old Man, by Gonzague Pichelin and Benjamin Sutherland, ran on The Sundance Channel in fall 2005. At the end of the film, Whitman trimmed his hair using the flame of a candle, set his hair on fire, and then doused it.
On Wednesday, September 26, 2007, journalist Gerry Hadden’s story on George Whitman, his daughter Sylvia, and Shakespeare & Company aired on NPR’s The World (a co-production of the BBC, Public Radio International (PRI), and the Boston radio station WGBH).[5][6]
[edit]Death

Whitman died on December 14, 2011, at age 98, at home in the apartment above his bookshop, Shakespeare and Company, in Paris. He will be buried in the Père Lachaise cemetery in the east of Paris.

Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NwfEsLvmTw

As seen on The Jon Hammond Show MCTV MNN TV cable access show with the classic opening by famous Weather Man Lloyd Lindsay Young and CNN live radio broadcast extravaganza AM 1130 WNEW All Star Show Hosted by the late great Al Jazzbo Collins aka Jazzbeaux Collins
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_%22Jazzbo%22_Collins
covered by Jon Hammond personally on May 29, 1987
Radio Hall of Fame http://www.bayarearadio.org/audio/jazzbeaux/
Incredible dialogue between Al Jazzbo Collins and Cynthia Tornquist of CNN she learns a lot from Jazzbeaux about the Purple Grotteaux and the night world of Jazz Musicians and the special people in the Al’s world. Whether Cynthia knows it or not she is being majooberized!
Jazzbo leads the famous call and response based on the 1948 film The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. In one scene some obviously very bad banditos try to pass themselves off to Bogart as federales (police). Humphrey Bogart’s character knows they are not federales but nevertheless asks to see some badges. The bandito-in-charge responds “Badges?! I don’t got no badges. We don’t need no badges! I don’t have to show you any stinkin’ badge.”
Most special broadcast and painting of the manhole cover door to Purple Grotteaux seen world wide on CNN TV as shot by Jon Hammond personally, enjoy folks!
*Note: The phone number for BackBeat Productions running on this clip was taken over by the IRS Internal Revenue Servie after a long battle with Jon Hammond, they had a bank of numbers 340-9000, 9001 etc. so they really wanted 212-340-9007 they finally got it. If you call it now you’ll get the IRS not Jon Hammond folks! Special thanks Lew Anderson big band, Lew was Clarabell the Clown on Howdy Doody TV Show between 1954 and 1960 his music playing while Jon Hammond takes you on a tour of the food of Horn & Hardart Automat at corner of 42nd St. and Third Avenue in Manhattan just below the main studios of WNEW Radio, now 1130 is Bloomberg Radio.
