John Ford appeared in just a few silent films; Howard Hawks never acted in movies. John Wayne directed only twice, and badly; ditto Burt Lancaster. From the very early days of his career, Eastwood was frustrated by directors' insistence that scenes be re-shot multiple times and perfected, and when he began directing inhe made a conscious attempt to avoid any aspects of directing he had been indifferent to as an actor.
As a result, Eastwood is renowned for his efficient film directing and ability to reduce filming time and control budgets. He usually avoids actors' rehearsing and prefers to complete most scenes on the first take.
When acting in others' films, he sometimes takes over directing, such as for The Outlaw Josey Walesif he believes production is too slow. According to Life magazine, "Eastwood's style is to shoot first and act afterward. He etches his characters virtually without words. He has developed the art of underplaying to the point that anyone around him who so much as flinches looks hammily histrionic.

He is an investor in the world-renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links west of Carmel and donates his time to charitable causes at major tournaments. We moved every four or five months during the first 14 years of my life, so I was sent to a different church depending on wherever we lived. Most of them were Protestantbut I went to other churches because my parents wanted me to try to figure out things for myself.
They always said, 'I just want to expose you to some religious order and see if that's something you like'. So although my religious training was not really specific, I do feel spiritual things. If I stand on the side of the Grand Canyon and look down, it moves me in some way. It makes the idea of death much less scary. But then again, if you think that nothing happens after you die, maybe it makes you live life better.

October 23, Retrieved July 23, September 21, Singers were fronts for corporate music and, like so many other artists elsewhere — especially those of the African American variety — he was not allowed to have any sort of artistic control. Marvin Gaye refused to be reigned in by that and while his obstinacy rightfully furthered the cause of black artists gaining control of their own musical artistry, it did nothing but cause him problems with the Motown brass and namely Motown's chief and Marvin Gaye's brother-in-law, Berry Gordy, Jr.
It probably even hurt his own career as much as the new direction he sought in music furthered the financial fortunes of Motown and, later, other labels as well. As rampant racism, the Vietnam War, protest in the streets and police brutality seemed to bring America to its knees inMarvin Gaye brought forth all his talents to simply state — or ask?
Usually the Funk Brothers [the studio musicians who played without credit — until this album — on nearly every Motown recording ever made] didn't have the slightest idea for whom a song was intended or even what it was called. These supremely gifted musicians often looked down their noses at the pop music they were hired to churn out. Not this day. When bassist James Jamerson got home from work, he told his wife he'd just cut a classic. Marvin Gaye had been inspired and fashioned an inspiring ode that did indeed become a classic, almost immediately.
But Berry Gordy, Jr. Too political. Too weird. And not a hit. Finally in Januaryit was released and not only did it become a number 2 pop hit, it even outsold the hugely popular "I Heard it through the Grapevine. What he was doing was searching the wellspring of his soul to create music he felt.
Rather than singing words that were put in front of him, he was singing what came from within him. Lyrically, it might not even make sense. But it was him and there was a poetic beauty about it all. It was the same spontaneous composition that fuels so much of jazz. Marvin Gaye learned how to use technology to make his voice do multiple things at once.
If you listen to any of the music from this perioda study of Marvin Gaye's voicings would read like a treatise on a jazz group. Marvin Gaye heard something that no Album) before him had ever heard: precisely how to turn a crooner into a choir. A jazz choir. Much of the jazz sensibility Marvin Gaye was exercising in his perfect and profitable voice extended to the musical instrumentation supporting those songs. The Funk Brothers must have loved playing for this guy. He was hearing an extension of what he was trying to express.
That it yielded hit after hit of hitherto unheard musical magic is miraculous enough. But that it is, like Miles Davis, seeking to express a sound that has never been heard before is a testament to the man's musical genius — a genius that was probably sublimated to that "Love Man" voice as the unfortunately crowned "Prince of Motown. There is much that is fascinating and worthwhile in Marvin Gaye's music from this period aside from the hits and that beautiful voice. Here, now, is a voice that is an instrument of divinity, transcending Top 40 radio, and expressing what is soulful about soul, heartfelt about life and creative about so much jazz.
Since I do not propose a survey of the hits and how successful or unsuccessful any of the music is, I will contain my commentary to the jazz elements I detect in the work — and the jazz coverage the music has received. It's what makes Marvin Gaye's music important to me and what makes it live beyond The Big Chill type nostalgia.
What's Going On Tamla, : From Eli Fontaine's introductory alto sax wail and the multiple vocal tracks on the title trackWhat's Going On announces itself as something new, different and most audibly as something very, very special.
The percussion is especially well thought-out and conceived mostly by Marvin Gaye like a big-band arrangement of old.
All the musicians are credited here — for the first time ever on a Motown album — as well they should be since their contribution is significant to the music's success. Jazz players such as Grover Washington, Jr. All of these renditions perfectly showcase the jazz genius Marvin Gaye brings to his music. The rest of the album was recorded some months later, but the result is so amazing as to stand as one of the finest albums recorded during the first half of the s.
The gorgeous "Wholy Holy" is one of the album's secret pleasures and it too has been covered by Aretha Franklin, twice! The urban groove of "Inner City Blues" contains one of the most important bass lines in all of music surprisingly not in evidence on the earlier mix of the song included on the Deluxe Edition CD.
It's probably one of the most astounding melodies on display here, with David Van DePitte's remarkable string accompaniment and, lest I neglect to mention elsewhere, some of Marvin Gaye's finest vocalisms. To this listener, the album's musical highlight is the great Latin jazz groove of "Right On," with its flute, sax, probably MPG's own piano and percussion features. Lonnie Smith on the album Easy Does It. Insmooth saxophonist Everett Harp covered the entire What's Going On album rather reverentially for the Blue Note label, an opportunity that should have probably been offered to Grover Washington, Jr.
Trouble Man Tamla, : This was the first — and, sadly, last - soundtrack to carry Marvin Gaye's name and, while it was attached to a forgettable Blaxploitation epic, directed by the estimable Ivan Dixon - the former Hogan's Heroes star who directed the great The Spook Who Sat By The Door the following year, with a score by Herbie Hancock - the music magnificently transcends the hardly-seen film.
As a soundtrack, Trouble Man has remained in print longer and more memorably than almost every other score of its ilk other than those exceedingly popular ones by Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes. As Ben Edmonds says in his excellent liners to the Let's Get It On Deluxe Edition CD, "Largely instrumental and based around Marvin's piano and Moog synthesizer, [ Trouble Man ] demonstrated that the singer could master musical mood without the divine intervention of his voice.
It's hardly the worthy follow up to What's Going On that anyone was seeking. But it's so much more Stanley Hill Dr. - Kyle Eastwood - From There To Here (CD than almost any other Blaxploitation soundtrack ever issued.
And it's a great record on its own. Maybe that's because it didn't resort to cheap chicanery. Everything Marvin Gaye does here feels soulful and heartfelt. Nearly everything heard here is a highlight. Lonnie Smith and, most memorably of all, of course, by Grover Washington, Jr. Johnson, who had also recently scored Cleopatra Jones make Trouble Man worth every effort to hear, savor, respect and appreciate.
When an artistic triumph is a commercial success, that level of inspiration is expected to continue, though it rarely ever does. A single, "You're The Man," followed in and failed to even chart. Motown forced the singer to work with a stable of producers to little avail. But during this time he managed to satisfactorily score a film Trouble Man and complete an album of duets with Diana Ross. They scored a hit with "Let's Get It On" and followed it up with one of the most romantic albums of the day.
The now well-known song has always been considered the ultimate paean to lovemaking and the sensational groove that's laid down bears this out. But the song was actually conceived by Ed Townsend while he was in rehab as a way to "get on" with life. Apparently, Marvin Gaye reinvented the song on the spot as his future wife made her first appearance in his life the moment they recorded this song, which possibly explains the lyric jumble that hardly anyone notices. Surprisingly, "Let's Get It On" never received the amount of jazz attention Marvin Gaye's other songs from this period did.
The rest of the album, filled out with a reprise of the title track called "Keep Getting' It On," is a letdown to this listener.
Still, it maintains enough of that romantic melodicism of the title song to attract many other fans and, accordingly, a number of warm jazz tributes. There's probably a lot more of this stuff that hasn't been released. But you could say that about any of the other productions the Deluxe Edition includes.
It's nice to hear just exactly how Marvin Gaye was experimenting between his two most famous albums. I Want You Tamla, : Though this album undoubtedly has its fans, it is merely a conventional soul record enlivened mostly by Marvin Gaye's textual and contextual vocalisms. Informed more by a mellow sort of disco than any sense of jazz or the creative intervention that produced What's Going OnI Want You puts Leon Ware in charge and the effect is that of Marvin Gaye as an invited guest on his own record.
Naturally, MPG shapes the words and the way they are sung into his own message. The result is nothing less than a sexual valentine to his beloved, Jan, who would become his second wife a year after this album's release.
Personal and heartfelt though it may be, it just seems like hearing someone have sex: maybe great for them, not so great for you. The album's two most notable songs, "I Want You" which appears in three iterations here and the fairly silly "After the Dance" which is heard as both an instrumental and vocal piece herebarely even register in any fair comparison to Marvin Gaye's best work.
But both were released as singles. Saxophonist Gato Barbieri covered "I Want You" twice — once in on Caliente and again in on Che Corazon — and he had the luxury of getting Marvin Gaye to provide him with a song of his very own, "Latin Reaction," which appeared on the Argentine saxophonist's album Ruby, Ruby. I haven't heard the Deluxe Edition of this record.
But the basic tracks of the original hardly add up to enough to warrant the effort. I'd never heard anything quite like it before. Chances are, no one else had either. I screamed with joy and danced my ass off to this brilliant little piece of funk.
It's always made me so happy. Apparently Marvin Gaye had to fight with the Motown brass to produce a double-album live set. Motown only wanted a single record. But MPG, who was not only stage shy but terrified of flying, insisted on featuring the entire show, recorded in London, on record. That amounted to three sides of a double LP. It's an incredibly spirited performance that finds Marvin Gaye giving Motown the coverage of his oldies they wanted.
But there's no sign that he's coasting or slumming for the audience here. Aside from hypnotizing the audience into a sexed-up frenzy, MPG delivers every song from the heart and the soul of his very being. The great arrangements — particularly on the horns some of the old songs get more of a contemporary disco treatment than is agreeable to the music — really energize the singer.
After it was all captured, Motown relented but MPG's engineer, Art Stewart, knew they still needed something to finish off the fourth side of the double set.
Marvin had been "fooling around" with a song where he discovers how to overcome his fear of dancing. Stewart knew they had a number one hit on their hands and, while in London, forced MPG to do something in the studio with the song and get it laid down for the album. In addition to Marvin Gaye's commanding falsetto voicings, "Got To Give It Up" features the great MPG playing several keyboard parts including a brilliant theramin-like sounding synthesizergrapefruit juice bottle!
It all adds up to a clever piece of disco funk that has a great jazz groove as its genesis — particularly in the employment of MPG's many overlaid vocal parts. This brilliant performance did end up becoming a number one smash hit, to everyone's surprise except its producer, Art Stewart.
