www.americanradiohistory.com classical musicians were asked to get into a groove they weren't comfortable in. Any kind of music presented honestly which doesn't make people feel uptight has a good chance of success," Mangione says by phone from his Rochester, N.Y. home. Mangione's first LP was based on his quartet working with the Rochester Philharmonic in a program of the composer's own works. "Ten years ago the orchestra wouldn't have extended the invitation," Mangione says resolutely.

When he was tendered the invitation to develop a work for the Philharmonic, Chuck realized he couldn't ask the symphonic players to be jazz musicians, so he augmented his own group with several sidemen like trumpeter Al Porcino. 'People were only asked to do that which they did well," is the way Mangione explains it. Young people today seem to be more prepared to accept good music in any form, hence the enthusiastic reception to "Friends and Love" which Mercury Records taped. Jazz and classical music can blend, Mangione believes because the major classical orchestras are suffering financially and this marriage is one way of attracting new devotees. The key is to take key jazz soloists and place them within the orchestral framework. "It's a whole avenue that can be explored and it could bring in a whole new element to discover sym- phonic music." Mangione has been on the faculty of the Eastman School of Music for four years where he teaches arrang- ing and improvisation with one fifth of the student body into jazz studies. Who is qualified to write jazz for a symphonic setting? Chuck says only those persons who can relate to the symphonic player. When he writes for a symphony orchestra, he provides Jazz composer Chuck Mangione rehearses the Rochester Philharmonic. His music marries jazz with classical open space for the jazz soloist. On cue everyone proceeds and it swings! to the next notated area. "I don't write free music," Chuck says. In some instances the music is predeter- mined. It's not just open.

Says Wein: "It's a format we've developed and it works. We present artists with heavy urban appeal that attracts a 70 to 80 percent black audience. The soul artists included are valid additions because of their relationship to the development of jazz." Wein considers 1972 will be his strongest year yet, with the Newport York as his . The Houston Festival, an outgrowth of the Texas Longhorn Festival, is the first event of its kind held in the Astrodome. He is returning to Atlanta this year after an absence of a couple of years and has high hopes for the Bay Area Festival in Oakland which he considers should develop into a festival equal in stature to Newport. The Hampton Festival, where he is partners with the city, is the first one he's presented there. Wein believes in work ng with the civic authorities. His New York Festival shares profits after expenses with the National Urban League and the New York Urban League, both black organizations. He has involved former Mayor Robert Wagner heavily in the event-"the greatest friend the festival could have," says Wein -and finds "total cooperation" from the Parks Committee, Lincoln Center, Loew's Hotel chain (who will give Wein office headquarters) and the various organizations concerned with putting on a 27 event Festival with an estimated budget of over $550,000.

estivais are a traditional form of happy medium for jazz. In the United George Wein is the medium's man on the go, putting together JStates,1 packages for various cities and providing employment for top name musicians. On the West Coast, the Monterey bash is solid and sure and riot free. Billboard jazz buff Van Dove spoke with Wein in New York about his festival business. The -New York, nine days of concerts, jam sessions, boat rides, street fairs, seminars all devoted to jazz, blues and gospel, is shaping up as probably the world's biggest jazz bash. All of which must sooth producer Wein after the outrages committed to his Newport Festival last year when kids trashed the veteran and best known jazz festival. Now almost a year later Wein is able to reflect calmly: "The after- effects haven't been as severe as I first thought. In fact the business of last year's festival has made little difference. Occasionally you run into questions and it has to be explained that we run jazz festivals - not rock events." Newport in New York, 1972 is only the tip of the iceberg for Wein's activities in America. This year he has festivals set for Oakland, the Hampton Institute in Virginia, Atlanta, Houston, Cincinnati and New Orleans. He uses a backbone of name talent such as Ray Charles, B.B. King, a Jimmy Smith jam session format, Lou Rawls, Ike and Tina Turner, and a special Giants of Jazz group (Gillespie, Stitt, Winding, Monk, Blakey) that leads the band at Monterey.

www.americanradiohistory.com Who is and why are people saying such nice things about him? There are people in the industry who've started noticing Billy Joel, and are saying nice things about him. We'd like to thank them. * For those of you who don't know about Joel yet, a short story. Billy Joel started writing music when he was seven. He was too lazy to read his Bach or Schubert, so he'd make up parts to fake out his mother. The story continues with young Joel growing up with other people's music, until he got tired of trying to be hip and started thinking for himself. His first album is a personal one, out of his life and his thoughts. He plays an incredible grand piano, and is backed up by some great people. Larry Knechtel, Rhys Clark, Denny Siewell, Sneaky Pete, Sal De Troia and Don Evans. We hope you like "Cold Spring Harbor ". But as Billy says, "If you're not crazy about
