Fair*Cood*'Excalieat” «
by Allen Jones
The Ebony Fashion Fair has become an institution, as far as fashion shows are
concerned. Fur the past eighteen years Ebony Publisher John H. Johnson has
produced this national fashion fair. With local, civic and social organizations as the
sponsors. Each year, the show travels to 155 cities throughout the country; promoting
Black beauty, style, class and the very latest in fashions. The $4.5 million dollars that
has been raised through the years has gone to such notable endeavors as: the United
Negro College Fund, Urban League Guild, Flint Goodrich Hospital in New Orleans,
various scholarship funds and children's homes in different parts of the country.
Although the fashion fair was winding up its season when it arrived in Portland, the
Civic Auditorium offered the class and atmosphere for just such a show There were a
total of twelve models in the show, two men and ten attractive Black women. All from
various parts of the country, which collectively made for an excellent show and
presentation of international fashions, that left the audience in complete awe. Thanks
to the standout of: Von Gretchen Shephard from Tyler, Texas; Alexandra Stewart
from Oxon Hill, Maryland; Gayle King from Gary, Indiana; Cynthia Smith from
Chicago, Illinois; and Audre I^a Corbiere also from Chicago. Designers included the
"cream". From Italy, there were Capucci, Antonell and Andre’ Lauq. The British
designers were: Jean Muir and Zandra Rhodes. The French, noted for their
innovation of design featured: Pierre Cardin, Ko-Ko, Madame Gre s, Kenzo Tarada
and Christian Dior. Some of the largest and most famous designer houses in the
world. Bringing it back to this side of the Atlantic you have: Calvin Klein. Mady
Gerrand; Black designers: Stan Herman, James Darron, Woody White from Chicago
and the unmistakable, Stephen Burrows from New York, in my opinion one of the very
best designers on this side of the Atlantic - or the other.
The entire evening was sponsored by 25 lovely ladies who call themselves “The
Links, Incorporated." Their accomplishments on both a local and national level are
countless. There are 144 chapters in 33 states. Their organization is committed to
educational, cultural and civic activities. For an example, they have contributed
$37,000 to the NAACP Life Membership Fund, another $100,000 to the Urban League
and roughly $250,000 to the United Negro College Fund for higher education. Local
contributions have been made to NAACP, Urban League, Whitney M. Young, Jr.
Scholarship Fund, Multnomah Association for Retarded Children, Volunteers of
America, Albina Ministerial Alliance and many others. It is gratifying to see an
organization so dedicated in caring. Not many of the educational, cultural and civic
groups of our community will give as much throughout the years as “The Links,
Incorporated." Our hats are off to all of you, for your past, present and future
by John Robert Paris “WILD BILL" - BILLY COBHAM • ••
Last Thursday night, April 8th, "Wild" Billy Cobham, also known as William E.
Cobham, Jr., made one of his rare appearances at the Paramount.
With the rise of rock jazz, you have drummers, "had" drummers and what I call
super drummers. Billy Cobham is a super drummer and what would one of his
concerts be like without a few spectacular drum solos. And solo he did, Bill lets loose
with a flurry of speed and energy, traveling across hia elaborate Fibes drums with
incredible swiftness, power and rhythm.
As serious as “Wild” Bill seems on the drum set, he is actually a very friendly and
mellow person - as could be seen during his antics with the other members of the
group: Alfonse Johnson on bass, John Abecrombie on guitar, and special effects
provided by George Duke on the synthesizer.
All the members of the group are outstanding artists in their own right, each
having produced a recent album. If you're at the record shop, you might keep these
names in mind, the next time you're looking for some jamming sounds. Cobham was
everything I expected him to be and - mooooore!!
Les McCann has been a jazz pianist as long as I am old - practically. His keyboard
artistry has been heard all around the world - many times. One does not learn to
appreciate jazz music overnight, as any jazz buff will readily admit. It usually starts
with one or two musicians, then you gradually learn to appreciate others and
eventually you buy their records and go to their concerts. As was the case with Les
I started with the old Ramsey l>ewis, he did a selection entitled “Deliah" fifteen
years ago. From Ramsey Lewis I went to Oscar Peterson, Ahmad Tamal, Les McCann
and other heavyweights, whom I considered played a "mean" piano. I’ve seen them at
supper clubs and I've bought their records, including Les. No jazz collection is
complete without him.
Sunday night I saw a slimmer, orthodox Les McCann who was literally engulfed in
"synthesizers”. Synthesizers are electronic pieces of equipment used to exagerate
sounds and create different sound effects, made famous by Jimi Hendrix in the mid
60’s. Gradually jazz musicians picked them up and now most of them live by them. I
refer to this era as "Synthesizer Madness". Aside from loosing the quality of music,
they can be deafening to the listener. Les spent the time in between selections
checking wires and playing with his instrument panels. I found the concert to be short
and irritating, for the most part. There was Thompson on guitar, Jimmy Brouse on
bass, Harold Davis on drums, who was very good - all things considered. “Everytime I
See A Butterfuly" was the standout selection for the evening, along with "Someday
We'll Meet Again" and others. Something told me, I should have stayed home and
watched the T.V.
Television station channel 6 had an afternoon special entitled: “All Star Jazz Show",
which was viewed on April 13th from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. The subject was jazz the
beginning to present with Dianne Worwick as the hostess for the show. Check out the
line of stars: Joe Williams, Max Roach, Dizzy Gilispie, Stan Getz, Count Basie, Herbie
Hancock, Gerry Mulligan and a host of dancers. I took the liberty of calling the station
to see when it will be aired again - they don't know. It's unfortunate that most adults
weren't able to see it during that time period. Give the station a call if you’re
