DES MUSIQUES CRÉOLES

Michel CaillatBimonthlyFridays12PM - 1PM

Historian and jazz passionate Michel Caillat unveils its researches on the formation of the jazz genre. From the very first recordings to its modern forms, his show focusses on american and caribbean musical, entertwined expressions.

En mai 1937, l’orchestre de Duke Ellington grave la version définitive du célèbre Caravan, tandis que trois jours plus tard, un jeune trompettiste encore inconnu lire un solo novateur dans le King Porter Stomp plutôt décoiffant proposé par l’orchestre de Teddy Hill. On appréciera les débuts discographiques de la chanteuse de gospel Mahalia Jackson et on réécoutera bien sûr fréquemment la chanson I’ll Never Be The Same, un chef d’œuvre dans lequel la chanteuse Billie Holiday côtoie le pianiste Teddy Wilson et le saxophoniste ténor Lester Young. De grands morceaux de l’orchestre de Count Basie, parmi lesquels One O’Clock Jump, prennent place après le salace Traveling Riverside Blues de Robert Johnson, ainsi que deux joyaux de celui de Jimmie Lunceford.
La musique cubaine est d’une extraordinaire vitalité en ce début d’été 1937, comme le prouve le très dynamique son No Me perturbes du Septeto Cauto et l’extraordinaire Bruca Manigua de l’orchestre du Casino de la Plage de la Havane, où brille lle chanteur métis Miguelito Valdés.

En mai 1937, les communistes espagnols avec la complicité des républicains modérés répriment violemment l’extrême gauche anarcho-syndicaliste et en juillet mettent fin à la collectivisation des terres en Aragon, tandis que les forces nationalistes écrasent la République basque en juin. En Union soviétique, une opération de masse contre les éléments considérés comme hostiles au régime est décidée au plus haut niveau en juillet 1937 : elle conduira à l’exécution de près de 400’000 personnes et l’envoi d’un nombre équivalent de gens au goulag. La situation internationale se tend davantage encore avec l’agression japonaise contre la Chine en juillet 1937, considérée par nombre d’historiens comme le véritable début de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale.


Les deux premiers morceaux présentés dans cette émission nous permettent d’entendre l’orchestre de Count Basie en live lors de sa première saison à New York, et c’est une expérience qu’on n’est pas près d’oublier. On admirera le tempo souple de Wednesday Night Hop par l’orchestre d’Andy Kirk, d’une redoutable efficacité, ainsi que le jeu torride et précis du batteur Chick Webb dans Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie et on se laissera emporter par la fougue des musiciens de l’orchestre de Lionel Hampton dans Whoa Babe. On ne manquera pas d’être interloqué par le texte particulièrement salace de Wet It de Frankie Jaxon, le fameux chanteur de Chicago qui se distinguait dans ses shows où il incarnait un personnage féminin. Enfin on saluera la deuxième rencontre entre le saxophoniste Coleman Hawkins, qui vivait alors en Hollande, et le guitariste manouche Django Reinhardt à Paris en mars 1937.
Les îles caraïbes sont également à l’honneur, en particulier avec la fameuse chanson du Caresser Edward The VIII, qui évoque l’abdication par amour du souverain britannique, le 11 décembre 1936, et l’extraordinaire Man Man Biscoe par Atilla The Hun.

Alors que la guerre se poursuit en Espagne où l’armée italienne compte jusqu’à 70’000 hommes, la légion Condor hitlérienne bombarde Guernica le 26 avril 1937, petite ville basqu En Éthiopie, l’armée d’occupation italienne, sous les ordres du général Graziani, se distingue par sa férocité dans la répression de la résistance, en exécutant notamment plus de 3’000 civils à la suite d’un attentat qui a blessé grièvement Graziani le 19 février 1937. Enfin, pour compléter le tableau hélas non exhaustif des crimes commis au nom du suprématisme blanc, le 21 mars 1937, les forces de police des États-Unis abattent une vingtaine de manifestants pacifiques à Ponce, sur l’île de Porto Rico qui protestaient contre l’incarcération d’un dirigeant indépendantiste.


Parmi les joyaux présentés aujourd’hui, les premières gravures où intervient le saxophoniste Lester Young, qui ouvrent cette émission, sont remarquables, par la nouveauté du langage développé par ce musicien, d’une étonnante modernité et d’un
swing idéal pour la danse. On aimera également la manière dont Ella Fitzgerald interprète la chanson Organ Grinder’s Swing, une version très appréciée sur le dancefloor. Trois parmi les fameux enregistrements de novembre 1936 du chanteur et
guitariste du Mississippi Robert Johnson ont été retenus : I Believe I’ll Dust My Broom, un authentique rock’n’roll, qui marquera des générations de musiciens, le salace Terraplane Blues, le disque le plus populaire de ce bluesman à l’époque, ainsi que sa lecture extatique de Rollin’ And Tumblin’ sous le titre If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day.
Les auditeurs ne manqueront pas de saluer l’humour distancié qui caractérise la vision donnée par l’orchestre de Jimmie Lunceford d’Ill See You In My
Dreams, ni d’apprécier les premiers témoignages discographiques de l’orchestre de Count Basie avec Lester Young. Ils découvriront également avec plaisir la prestation de Joséphine Baker avec les Lecuona Cuban Boys, de passage à Paris en cet
hiver 1936-1937. L’émission se conclut sur un chef d’œuvre qui a enflammé les pistes de danse de l’époque, Wabash Stomp, un instrumental incandescent du trompettiste Roy Eldridge qui n’a pas pris une ride.


La marijuana est encore à l’honneur dans cette émission avec l’évocation du dealer d’herbe (Here Comes The Man With The Jive, de Stuff Smith) et de la richesse que celui-ci peut amasser (Weed Smoker’s Dream, des Harlem Hamfats). Quelques chefs d’œuvre sont par ailleurs à relever : Old Joe’s Hittin’ The Jug par le violoniste et chanteur Stuff Smith, ave Jonah Jones à la trompette et le batteur Cozy Cole ; In A Jam par l’orchestre de Duke Ellington ; la version donnée par l’orchestre de Jimmie Lunceford d’Organ Grinder’s Swing ; ou, encore, Sweet Chorus, une incroyable méditation manouche livrée par Django Reinhardt. On écoutera également avec plaisir le Trio Cubain dans Negro Bembón ainsi qu’Antonio Machín dans La Conga, deux morceaux enregistrés à Paris.

La situation internationale se tend davantage durant l’été 1936. En effet, le 17 juillet, des généraux se soulèvent contre le gouvernement de Front populaire en Espagne. Si le putsch échoue, il ouvre, dès le 18, un conflit armé qui va ensanglanter le pays pendant près de trois ans. Tandis que le gouvernement de Front populaire installé à Paris doit se résoudre à ne pas intervenir dans la guerre, les avions allemands et italiens assurent le transfert des troupes rebelles du Maroc sur le sol espagnol les 27 et 28 juillet, ce qui leur permet de prendre l’Extrémadure et d’établir la liaison avec celles installées dans le nord. En octobre, les premières Brigades internationales, formées à l’instigation de la 3e Internationale débarquent en Espagne pour venir en aide aux armées républicaines, dont la situation militaire s’affaiblit dangereusement.
Tandis que s’ouvrent le 1er août à Berlin les Jeux olympiques, du 19 au 24 août se déroule le premier des procès dits de Moscou, celui du « Centre terroriste trotzkyste-zinovieviste », qui aboutit à l’exécution de Kamenev et de Zinoviev le lendemain. En septembre débutent les grandes purges en Union soviétique.
Entre le 21 et le 24 octobre ont lieu d’importants entretiens entre les représentants du gouvernement de Mussolini avec les dirigeants de l’Allemagne nazie, qui autoriseront le leader fasciste à annoncer, le 1er novembre, la constitution d’un axe entre Rome et Berlin


Cette émission nous transporte dans le monde des musiques créoles d’Amérique du Nord, des Caraïbes, de France et d’Afrique subsaharienne entre avril et juin 1936. Plusieurs événements importants ont lieu durant cette période. Des élections législatives ont lieu en France le 26 avril et le 3 mai, qui voient le triomphe du Front populaire, une coalition regroupant les républicains, les radicaux, les radicaux-socialistes, les socialistes et les communistes. Cette victoire ouvre la voie à la formation d’un gouvernement de gauche sans la participation du parti communiste sous la direction du socialiste Léon Blum le 4 juin. Plusieurs semaines de grèves avec occupations d’usines amènent les syndicats ouvriers et patronaux à signer les accords de Matignon le 7 juin. La semaine de 40 heures et des congés payés de 15 jours sont institués. Le 5 mai, les troupes italiennes font leur entrée à Addis Abeba. L’Éthiopie est incorporée dans l’Empire italien d’Afrique, avec l’Érythrée et la Somalie, mais la résistance s’organise et durera jusqu’en 1941, année qui verra l’effondrement de cet empire. Le 12 mai, l’Italie fasciste quitte la Société des Nations, en protestation contre les sanctions timides prises par cette organisation contre le gouvernement dirigé par Benito Mussolini à la suite de l’agression italienne contre l’Éthiopie. En mai débute la révolte des Arabes de Palestine, alors sous mandat britannique, qui exigent l’arrêt de la colonisation sioniste et la création d’un État arabe sur l’ensemble du territoire.

Deux grandes chansons sur la marijuana dans cette émission : When I Get Low I Get High, écrite conjointement par le batteur et chef d’orchestre Chick Webb et la toute jeune chanteuse de l’orchestre, Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996), alors âgée d’à peine dix-neuf ans ; et I’se A Muggin’, composée par Stuff Smith, dans la version qu’en donne à Paris le chanteur et danseur Freddy Taylor avec Django Reinhardt et Stéphane Grappelli. Autre chef d’œuvre de Django : Oriental Shuffle, Quant à Blues In C Sharp Minor, par l’orchestre de Teddy Wilson avec Roy Eldridge à la trompette, il s’agit probablement d’un des instrumentaux les plus groovy de l’année 1936. Autre artiste à l’humour corrosif : le pianiste et chanteur Fats Waller (1904-1943) dans Passwonky. Les amateurs de musique tropicale apprécieront le chanteur de calypso The Lion dans Bam Si Lam Bay ainsi que King Radio dans Texilia, chanté en créole français, alors encore largement en usage sur l’île de Trinidad.
