Jazz series to 'Eclipse'

Ann Arbc

By PAUL SHAPIRO
As the autumn air cools, Ann Arbor
is going to be heating up with some of
the finest jazz this town has ever
seen. Eclipse Jazz, the non-profit
collective that has worked diligently
in re-establishing jazz in Ann Arbor,
is sponsoring an eclectic program
which promises to bring out the best
in both traditional and avantigarde
jazz.
The Eclipse season, entitled Jazz:
The American Classic, opens Sep-
tember 17 with Jean-Luc Ponty.
Ponty has worked with Frank Zappa,
George Duke, and the Mahavishnu
Orchestra and is currently the fore-
most violinist of the jazz-rock fusion.
Ponty will be followed by saxo-
phonist Sonny Rollins, whose inven-
tiveness and fluidity has made him
one of the most respected men in jazz
today.
On October 21 Dexter Gordon, the
father of the bebop tenor sax, will
perform at the Power Center. Gordon
is back from an extended stay in
Europe, and offers listeners a rare
chance to hear one of the most
NEW INDIAN HISTORY
WASHINGTON (AP) - Chicago's
Newberry Library recently received
a grant to prepare an Atlas of Great
Lakes Indian History.
The atlas will deal with Indian
history and Indian-white relations in
the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley
region from 1615 to 1871. It will cover
such disruptions to Indian life as
inter-tribal warfare, refugee move-
ments, epidemics, international
treaties, encroachment by white
settlers and the establishment of
reservations and land allotments.
The grant of $173,642 was made by
the National Endowment for the
Humanities.

influential musicians of modern jazz.
Following Gordon will be the Art
Ensemble of Chicago. Encompassing
such diverse elements at classical
music, African culture, and tradi-
tional jazz forms, the Ensemble have
proven themselves to be a major
force in, today's music. The final
Eclipse concert is the great piano
soloist Oscar Peterson. Playing in
the style of the swing era and with a
strong blues-oriented power, Peter-
son has been called the most articu-
late and all-consuming pianist since
Art Tatum.
In addition to their five concert
schedule, Eclipse Jazz' and the
Residential College have joined
forces to present 'Bright Moments', a
series of four concert-workshops in
East Quad auditorium. The concerts
will showcase mostly solo and duet
performances by lesser known jazz
artists representing a variety of
styles.The series has been dedicated
to Rahsaan Roland Kirk in recogni-
tion and celebration of his artistry
and unique spirit.
A joint concert and poetry reading
by saxophonist Marion Brown and
poet Jodi Braxton will open the series
on September 23. Violinist Leroy
Jenkins of the Revolutionary En-
semble will perform solo on October
7. Air Trio (Henry Threadgill, Fred
Hopkins and Steve McCall) will
appear in early December. All.
'Bright Moments' tickets will be
priced between two and three dol-
lars.
Since Eclipse is a non-profit organ-
ization and is funded in part by
the National Endowment For
The Arts, ticket prices are less
expensive than comparable shows in
other cities. Ticket prices for Jazz:
The American Classic range between
$3.50 general admission for Rollin
and the Art Ensemble to $3.50-$5.50
reserved seats for Ponty, Gordon,
and Peterson. Season tickets are
offered at a discount price. For
information call Eclipse at 763-1107.

You've got a good head
on your shoulders. A nice
place to live. You've got a de-
cent job, or at least it's going
to be someday. Maybe you've
even got a couple bucks in the
bank. And plans, you've got
plenty of them. Life is just a
bowl of cherries, right? Ex-
cept it's not. Something's
missing. And you're begin-
ning to come up empty. Get-
ting out of bed used to be
easy, now it's not anymore.
And you've begun to look at
yourself, right to the inside,
and you're asking, is that all
there is? Well, it's not, you
know. Not even close.
There's the Peace Corps.
Maybe it'll be teaching
nutrition. Or building a
schoolhouse. Or clearing a
field so the people in the vil-

lage you serve can adopt a
new habit: eating everyday.
You came to-the Peace Corps
to give and you've gotten.
You've learned a language.
Discovered a new culture.
Found out about life: theirs.
Yours. Morning has become
an adventure again}. Sure, the
hours are long andhard and
the bread is lousy. But some-
times, putting bread in some-
one's mouth can be more re-
warding to you than all the
bread in your pocket.
The Peace Corps is alive
and well.
Join the Peace Corps.
