    Sonny Clark - I Cant Give You Anything But Love

    3:49

    Conrad Yeatis Sonny Clark (July 21, 1931 – January 13, 1963) was an American jazz pianist who mainly worked in the hard bop idiom.
    Clark was born and raised in Herminie, Pennsylvania, a coal mining town east of Pittsburgh. His parents were originally from Stone Mountain, Georgia. His miner father, Emory Clark, died of a lung disease two weeks after Sonny was born. Sonny was the youngest of eight children. At age 12, he moved to Pittsburgh.

    When visiting an aunt in California at age 20, Clark decided to stay and began working with saxophonist Wardell Gray. Clark went to San Francisco with Oscar Pettiford and after a couple months, was working with clarinetist Buddy DeFranco in 1953. Clark toured the United States and Europe with DeFranco until January 1956, when he joined The Lighthouse All-Stars, led by bassist Howard Rumsey.

    Wishing to return to the east coast, Clark served as accompanist for singer Dinah Washington in February 1957 in order to relocate to New York City. In New York, Clark was often requested as a sideman by many musicians, partly because of his rhythmic comping. He frequently recorded for Blue Note Records, playing as a sideman with many hard bop players, including Kenny Burrell, Donald Byrd, Paul Chambers, John Coltrane, Dexter Gordon, Art Farmer, Curtis Fuller, Grant Green, Philly Joe Jones, Clifford Jordan, Jackie McLean, Hank Mobley, Art Taylor, and Wilbur Ware. He also recorded sessions with Charles Mingus, Sonny Rollins, Billie Holiday, Stanley Turrentine, and Lee Morgan.

    As a band leader, Clark recorded albums Dial S for Sonny (1957), Sonny's Crib (1957), Sonny Clark Trio (1957), with Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones, and Cool Struttin' (1958). Sonny Clark Trio, with George Duvivier and Max Roach was released in 1960.

    Clark died in New York City; the official cause was listed as a heart attack, but the likely cause was a heroin overdose.

    Improvising Over the Blues - Sonny Clark

    2:36

    Sonny Clark's star burned bright and hot but was short lived. In barely a decade, he rose through the ranks as a sideman starting in 1953 for everyone from Serge Chaloff to Dinah Washington and by the time he ascended to the role of leader on seven highly regarded recordings on Blue Note from 1957-1961 he was considered to be the definitive hard bop pianist in jazz. By 1963, he was dead at the age of 31.

    In this lesson, a transcription of his solo over his blues head, Blues Blue, from his 1959 Blue Note recording, My Conception, is analyzed for his use of blues sound and chord sound. The downloadable practice sessions that accompany this lesson will guide you through your own use of these materials as you write and improvise your own blues solo.

    Sonny Clark - piano, Jymie Merritt - bass, Wes Landers - drums, recorded November 16, 1958, Composed by Illinois Jacquet, and Jimmy Mundy.
    Later lyrics were added my Al Stillman, for a song titled Don'cha Go Way Mad, performed by Frank Sinatra, Harry James and others
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I must confess what you say is true
    I had a rendezvous with somebody new
    That's the only one I ever had
    Baby, baby, don'cha go away mad

    Cheatin' shows and it never goes
    You got a reason to be mad I suppose
    But she only was a passin' fad
    Ba-by, don't you be mad

    Her kind's a dime a dozen
    And that's not the kind I want
    Who'd ever dream your cousin
    Would wander into that restaurant?

    I understand that you feel upset
    Whaddya you say that you forgive and forget?
    Come on and kiss me just to show you're glad
    Baby, baby don'cha go away mad
    ([instrumental)

    Now, her kind's a dime a dozen
    I should've passed her by
    Who'd ever dream your cousin
    Would come along and give us the eye?

    I understand that you're feel upset
    Whaddya you say that you forgive and forget?
    Come on and kiss me just to show you're glad
    Baby, don'cha go away mad

    Understand that you're quite upset
    Whaddya you say that you forgive and forget?
    Come on and kiss me just to show you're glad
    Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, don'cha go
    'way mad

    Now, don'cha go away mad
