IYL 8.2124 Young Composer Don Ellis Isolates Neophonic Sound BY LEONARD FEATHER A young trumpeter and composer named Don Ellis grasped the entire mighty Los Angeles Neophonic Orchestra, stuffed it in his very hip pocket, and ran off with the show Monday evening. His appearance in a work aptly entitled "Synthesis," marked the first conjunction of the Neophonic and Ellis' own group, which delights in the name of the Hindustani Jazz Sextet. Ellis' long verbal introduction, in which he explained that his piece would use Indian rhythmic devices ("the most sophisticated rhythmic system in the world"), became so complex in its explanation of the meters about to be employed that some listeners were a little concerned about not having brought a computer to The Music Center. When the music was performed, however, mathematics no longer seemed relevant. Ragas Outlined The two basic ragas (Indian scales) were outlined by Hari Har Rao, who played the sitar and the ta-bla. The rest of the group comprised a conventional jazz front line (Ellis and alto saxophonist Gabe Bal-tazar), plus mallet and rhythm instruments, all fortified, of course, by the 25 towering neophonicists around them. The synthesis wound an extraordinarily jagged route from New Orleans to New Delhi, even taking in 'Dolly' Signed for Film Role NEW YORK UP) Carol Channing has been signed to play the role of the richest girl in the world in a film comedy called "Thoroughly Modern Millie." Miss ; Channing, who was a sensation in the Broadway musical hit "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,", is now touring in the Chicago company of "Hello, Dolly!," the latest of her theater successes. "Thoroughly Modern Millie" will be the second movie in which she has performed. Ten years ago she played in the film, "The First Traveling Saleslady." Besides Miss Channing, Julie Andrews and James Fox will star in the film. i at times the staccato of rhythm and blues and the unison ensemble sound of an Ornette Coleman combo. This was no mere musical wedding; it was out right polygamy. Indian ragas and rhythms, European classical concepts, American sounds and African touches were all fused in a work that built to a wild, searing climax in fact, two or three wild, searing climaxes. Over-long, perhaps; pretentious, true; but when it was over we all knew that Ellis is a major talent as soloist, composer and catalyst. His is a name to watch for in the music of the 1970s. The Ellis work was the only one of the evening that gave full meaning to the term neophonic. Since He'd take on anyone, at anything, anytime, was only a& N&j amatterofwho came first!
