'Function '65' Revitalizes Local Jazz

In Pannig,

Cl'*SS C p pu

Set Nationwide
Teaching Plan

This Saturday afternoon at 4:00
p.m. the seventh in a series of
weekly jazz sessions will be held
at Ann Arbor's Sabo Club on
Davis Street. The series, which has
been christened "Function '65,"
provides a uniquely advantageous
situation both for people in the
Ann Arbor area who like to listen
to good jazz and for musicians
who like to play it.
The Sabo Club (formerly the
Komo, a private men's club) is a
large room with bandstand and
tables arranged in a manner
vaguely reminiscent of Detroit's
old Minor Key. Located just below
the Michigan Stadium at the cor-
ner of Davis and Green Streets,
the club is housed in an old grey
building across from the Univer-
sity plant department.
A fireplace and candle lighting
help to create a relaxed, informal
setting ideal for jazz listening.
There are no waitresses scurrying
about or cash registers ringing
and, unlike the Minor Key, there
is no one waiting at the door to
collect a cover charge. Attended
at first only by a small group of
hard-core jazz fans, each week
has seen a larger number of people
coming to hear the music.
Local Musicians
The music is provided by musi-
cians from nearby cities like De-
troit, Flint and Lansing who con-
tribute their talents in conjunc-
tion with local veterans. More
often than not a combo will in-
clude musicians from several dif-
ferent cities.
Perhaps the most impressive
group to appear at last Saturday's
session consisted of Sherman
Mitchell, a trombonist and flutist;
from Flint, Danny Spencer, a
talented young drummer from
Lansing and two local musicians,
Bob Detwiler on piano (he also
plays tenor) and Dick Wigginton,
a bassist. This Saturday musicians
from Jackson and Kalamazoo will
be featured. In addition, bassist
Max Wood, who leads a trio twice
weekly at The Falcon, will come
from Detroit.
The man who has singlehand-
edly conceived and organized
"Function '65" is , Ron Brooks,
himself a bass player, who for two
years constituted one-third of the
Bob James Trio. While studying
at Eastern Michigan, Brooks was
encouraged to take up the bass by
James and another ex-local mu-
sician, drummer Omar Clay. The
James Trio, perhaps the most
popular of all Ann Arbor jazz
groups, twice won the Notre Dame
jazz festival and has since ap-
peared in New York City and on
record. While the trio was based in
New York, Brooks worked in the
groups of Terry Gibbs, Freddy
Redd and Hank Mobley.
First Attempt
Having thus acquired his sea-
soning as a musician, Brooks' first
attempt as a promoter yielded
"Function '65." "My original idea
was to create a situation in which
conditions would be as ideal for
the musicians as possible. I want-
ed to provide an educational ex-
perience for up and coming mu-
sicians as well as an opportunity
for those musicians who already
have a name for themselves to de-

until approximately 200 people
attended last Saturday's session.
Expansion Contemplated
Encouraged by the early suc-
cess of "Function '65," Brooks is
beginning to think in terms of ex-
panding the program ;n the future
to include musicians of national
stature. "I feel Ann Arbor could
support larger names in jazz from
other parts of the country." His
present idea is to feature name
musicians with local rhythm sec-
tions in a series of afternoon con-
Brooks believes musicians who
travel through Detroit could be
induced to come to Ann Arbor to'
perform on Saturday afternoons
when they aren't working mat-
inees at a club. Specifically, Brooks'
named multi-instrumentalist Rol-
land Kirk, pianists Terry Pollard
and Bob James as possible can-
didates for the first few concerts.
Audience Contributions
At present, "Function '65" is
financed solely through audience
contributions. "There is no charge
for admission, we just pass the
hat-church style." Brooks ad-
mits, however, that a small ad-
missiontmight be necessary if he
jwere to hire name musicians,
swell'ng his expenses beyond rent.
"I don't think I would have to
charge more than a dollar a head
to make ends meet," he says. And
in this day of the "night club
murder game." a dollar seems like
small fare to pay for jazz enter-
tainment. Meanwhile, the Satur-
day sessions continue and people
who like jazz can hope that
"Function '65" will survive to be-
come "Function '66."

Hoping to achieve a relaxed at-

found himself pleasantly surprised
when the audiences grew larger,
but remained attentive. "People
just seem to realize that the mu-
sicians have come here to play.


This is a session which means
that musicians have made an out-
side effort to come. For them, it's
not just another job." He recalls4
that the first session, which took
place on the last day of finals in
December, drew about ten people
and that the numbers have more
than doubled each successive week
