Yard Byard: The Jaki Byard Project

Yard Byard: The Jaki Byard Project has been an idea waiting to happen.
For several years, flutist/composer Jamie Baum had been toying with the idea of forming a group of like-minded musicians to honor the late great jazz pianist, saxophonist, composer, arranger, and educator, Jaki Byard. Since his untimely passing in 1999, it was just a matter of time before someone would come forward to explore this yet untapped body of music. Now that time has come.

As one of the most versatile jazz improvisers of our time, Jaki Byard was less known for his compositional prowess than his exuberant and slightly off-kilter piano stylings. But thanks to his years of teaching and mentoring at institutions such as the New England Conservatory of Music and The Manhattan School of Music, we now have a constellation of Byard torch-bearers who make it their business to shed light on what was previously a dim memory. Jaki wasn't one to display his multi-instrumental and compositional abilities. Instead, it was more about the passing of that unique mantle piece of jazz history to many of his students as experienced with the likes of Charles Mingus, Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin, Sam Rivers, Maynard Ferguson, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Richard Davis, Elvin Jones, and many others.

It would have been "convenient" to include a pianist and become a living repository of "The Jaki Byard Sound." However, Yard Byard's mission is to explore the beauty and creativity of each of Jaki's compositions as well as to attempt to absorb the serious and whimsical sides of his larger-than-life personality. Focusing mostly on his music, this unique quintet also performs other compositions by some of the great artists Byard worked with or was influenced by, offering a snapshot of jazz history during an important period of American music.

"Cool ensemble, great repertoire, very promising project..." -- Howard Mandel (Jazz Journalists Association)

"This Jaki Byard repertory outfit was impressive in the way they gave props to both the wily pianist's serious and silly sides. Whimsy was part of the maestro's swinging approach, and flautist Jamie Baum and saxophonist Adam Kolker capture that vibe while dropping some very hip solos. More gigs equals tighter performances. Bet they mess with the material even more..." -- Jim Macnie, Village Voice

"The music was all Byard's, played lovingly and a bit loosely...Most of the songs in the first set were fine examples of standard form gone just slightly haywire. The absence of a pianist in the group is good strategy...here it created space for Mr. Okegwo to abandon rote walking bass lines in favor of roving pointillism...Mr. Kolker, his tenor solo on "Dolphy," (showed) a casual study in extended harmony. It also exposed the intervallic oddness of some of the songs, as arranged for alto flute and bass clarinet, or flute and tenor saxophone...Mischief isn't the only side of Byard's music, though, and Ms. Baum, an experienced composer-arranger, has clear perspective on his lyricism. "Toni," a ballad with waltz-like properties, was among the subtler highlights of the set. " --Nate Chinen, New York Times

Jaki Byard began playing professionally at the age of 15. "His playing was rich, masterful and above all, versatile, covering everything from stride and ragtime to bebop and free jazz. Pianist, saxophonist, composer, arranger, and teacher Jaki Byard had a career that followed the music -- along the way he became a master of every style of jazz." (NPR Jazz Profiles) He was an important influence for everyone he played with and taught.
He recorded extensively with Charles Mingus, Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin and Sam Rivers among others. As a leader, he recorded albums for the Prestige label during the 1960s and later led his big-band, The Apollo Stompers.
