Doctoral II status formally recognized
Second university in
state to receive status
TK Jones
STAFF WHITER
On May 1, ECU will join the
University of North Carolina at
Greensboro as the state's only other
doctoral II school.
"The formal recognition affirms
the efforts of scores of East Carolina
faculty members, administrators,
graduate students, trustees and
friends over the years said
Chancellor Richard Eakin in a
press release.
"It will mean new respect for
ECU in the higher education com-
munity, enhanced financial
resources for the university, and
increased opportunities to conduct
research th it is vital to the entire
state of North Carolina and
beyond Eakin said.
A doctoral II distinguishes the
university from our former title: a
comprehensive university. To gain
this distinction the university had

district currently encompasses pre-
dominantly black communities
along Interstate 85 from Charlotte
to Greensboro.
Congressional districts were
redrawn seven months ago, split-
ting many counties and causing
concern among current candidates
for office.
"I voted against the plan that is

Governors as a university that
grants at least 10 doctorates from
three or more disciplines � exclud-

The former title recognized the
university as a system that granted
some baccalaureate, some masters
and some doctoral degrees, but
never fitting the bill for the qualifi-
cations of the Board of Govcnor's
doctoral II requirements.
This doesn't mean that ECU
has earned the privilege by the
Board of Governors to issue Ph.Ds,
but that it is recognized for the
number of post graduate degrees
that it does offer.
"It means that we have joined
the ranks of academically distin-
guished universities that offer both
outstanding undergraduate pro-
grams as well as regionally signifi
cant doctoral programs said Dr.

Students may search

STAFF WRITER
The career services department of
ECU has teamed up with JOB-
TRAK Corporation
(www.jobtrak.com) to allow stu-
dents and alumni to search and
access jobs 24 hours a day, seven
days a week.
This means that there is virtual-
ly no limit to the searching ability
of job- seekers at ECU. JOB-
TRAK Corp. is one of the nation's
largest employment data provident.
The corporation primarily works
through the Internet, which ha
many advantages.
"The Internet has allowed us to
connect students and alumni with
employers in ways that we could
only imagine a few years ago said
Margie Swartouc, assistant director
of career services for employer rela-
tions.
Using the Internet allows ECU
students and alumni to look for jobs
anytime, anywhere, provided they
have a computer with Internet
access. But dissimilar to public
access career databases, ECU has a
unique password-protected data-
base on JOBTRAK that can only
be accessed by ECU students and
alumni, assuring employers a high-
ly qualified and motivated group of
candidates.
"Our students are extremely
comfortable with the web and uti-
lizing our JOBTRAK database has
definitely increased their opportu-
nities for employment Swartout
said.
The service is provided free to
students and alumni, while
employers pay a nominal fee to
post their positions. Some of the
companies that use the JOBTRAK
database are Microsoft, Wachovia
Bank and Trust Company, and
Enterprise Car Rental. The data-
base mainly deals with full-time

Twelve university Air Force ROTC
cadets were recendy invited to the
79th Fighter Squadron at Shaw Air
Force Base, S.C. from March 25 to
the 27.
An alumnus of the ECU
AFROTC, Captain Darryl Smith
(1986), extended the offer for the
cadets to visit the fighter squadron.
One of the highlights of the trip
was a ride in an F16 fighter plane.
Six of the 12 cadets got this privi-
lege because of performance above
and beyond the minimum physical
and academic requirements of the
AFROTC detachment. The six
cadets were senior Ray Erickson,
junior Nate Scott, sophomores
Vinny Abbinante and Andy Black,
and freshmen Nathaniel Karrs and
Sean Stevens.
"Flying in the F16 was absolute-
ly incredible said Erickson, wing
commander of the ECU AFROTC.
These flights were made up of
actual training missions that includ-
ed range bombing, simulated low
level SAM attack, high perfor-
mance take-off, and G-forces up to
nine G's. The other cadets also
agreed that it was the most incredi-
ble experience of their lives.
The cadets that did not partici-
pate in the actual F16 flight partici-
pated in briefings and F16 flight
simulators. They were cadets Marc
Stewart, Rodney Stevens, Greg
Jones, Steven McFadden, Dennis
Norton and Bryan Ott.
The main purpose of the visit
was to familiarize the cadets with

tional functions of a fighter

ECU testing new
cancer treatment
'K GREENVILLE (AP) �The East
Carolina University School of

ment for skin cancer that doctors
� say already shows promising
results for people with melanoma.
The five-year study being con-
ducted by several medical centers
� will determine how well the treat-
" .merit prolongs life for approxi-
J mately 1,100 patients worldwide in

Vans are not considered to be as safe
as traditional school buses and using
them to transport children is pro-
hibited by the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA).
According to NHTSA, the defin-
ition of a school bus is a vehicle
built to transport 11 or more passen-
gers, including the driver, to school
and other school related events.
This includes both school and activ-
ity buses as defined by the state of
North Carolina.
"Traditional school buses must
meet certain motor vehicle crite-
ria said Derek Graham, section
chief of the Transportation Services.
"School buses have side impact
strength, roll over protection and a
heavy duty build. They are just
built stronger than vans are
In an investigation promoted by
Dateline NBC's Bob McKeown, it
was stated that vans are not as
equipped as a school bus to ensure
the safety of the students.
"A van docs not have traffic con-
trol devices such as flashing lights or
stop arms McKeown said. "Also,
a school bus has more emergency
exits than a large van. In an acci-
dent in a van, the back seat can
block access to the rear door
"It's our recommendation that
children should only be transported
in traditional school buses said
Philip Recht, deputy head of
NHTSA.
ECU follows regulations posted
by NHTSA and does not use vans
as a mode of student transportation.
Although ECU has three vans that
have been used as the Pirate Ride
in the past, they have since been
unused except by the occasional
faculty member.
"Managers might use the vans to
run errands said Craig Jackson,
operation manager for ECU Transit.
"They are not, however, used to
transport students. It's easier and
safer for passengers to ride the
buses
ECU's student run transporta-
tion services consist of traditional
sized buses and vistas.
"Vistas are smaller buses that
hold about 24 passengers Jackson
said. "We use these buses for the
Mendenhall Shuttle, the Freshmen
Shutde, and the Red route. It's
more cost effective to use the vistas
instead of the larger buses on routes
that have a lower ridership popula-
tion
Jackson said ECU Transit is still
subject to all state regulations and
must adhere to the laws that all Pitt
County schools abide by.
"We must maintain federal state
regulation, motor vehicle laws such
as the CDL class B license which is
the required federal license all bus
drivers must have, and the
American Disabilities Act Jackson
said.
"An automotive dealer is prohib-
ited by federal law from selling a
school bus safety standards
Graham said. "Dealers will be
fined by the NHTSA for violating
this law
Carter
continued from pagel
operations and your thoughts on
hog waste pollution?
The hog operations should be placed
and zoned in areas that would be suit-
able for such operations. This isn't cur-
rently always done because of politics. If
you're powerful enough as a hog opera-
tor you can put your operations just
about where you want to, and that's not
fair. Industries that have potential to
pollute should be closely monitored, and
the penalties should le more severe for
violation.
Governor Hunt has proposed a
new child health insurance plan for
the working, low income families.
Do you think it will work?
certainly welcome anything that
can be done for the low-income working
people. The current criteria for deter-
mining unemployment is unfair. It's
becoming increasingly popular for tem-
porary agencies to operate in areas and
get more money than the people doing
the wort. That's realty semi-slavery.
The Employment Security Commission,
who generally has the responsibility for
keeping statistics on unemployment,
count these people as being employed. Yet
they only mate minimum wage and they
have no benefits.
In light of several scandals on
the Board of Transportation, such
as members resigning because of
suspected illegal influence, should
a different way of selecting board
members beronsidered?
Absolutely. Most of the Boards in the
state that are big contributors are very
political. There is a tendency for the
powers-to-be to look at how much an
individual has contributed to a party or
a candidate, and then decide who
should get which appointments. The
selection criteria should be developed
based on individuals' backgrounds,
interest and experience in choosing such
for such boards or commissions. I think
we should take a look at what some of
the other states are doing and see if we
can come up with better alternatives. So
long as an individual�the governor�
selects members, 1 think there is a ten-
dency for politics as well as favoritism
to enter in.
Martin
continued from pagel
they now have the ordinance making
power to determine that for themselves
and I'm sure they 'regoing to do that. At
the same time we've got to have hog
farms. We just don V want them to over-
power. I think what is necessary and
what will come to pass is, that they will
build a waste water disposal plant that
will be in the price range that a person
building a $2 to $3 million hog business
can afford to pay for.
Governor Hunt has proposed a
new child health insurance plan for
the wording, low income families.
Doyou think it will work?
We hove the benefit of having an $82
million federal grant for child health
care and we realize as a legislative body
that health care for children is very nec-
essary. The economy in some homes is
such that they can't afford health care.
With this $82 million that's costing us
about $28 million, we can double the
amount of children who are insured
using the poverty level, and double that,
and still give another layer of children
health care.
In light of several scandals on
the Board of Transportation, such
as members resigning because of
suspected illegal influence, should
a different way of selecting board
members be considered?
Yes. I think the governor as admin-
istrator should have some input, but not
total. I think legislative should have a
say in it because they do the financing.
The State Transportation bud-
get projected a $500 million cut for
the Kinston Global Trans Park.
What are your thoughts on this?
If that's what the Board and
Secretary of Transportation have come
to, so be it. But they also said that if they
need any additional money to secure the
industry that they hope to secure, they
would have the necessary appropria-
tions coming for them.

Recognition
continued from page I
ECU catch up to the reality of
ECU
This honor will help bring in
more graduate students and more
money. Whenever a school has a
strong post-graduate program, they
are generally well endowed with
grants and alumni support.
Other funding consists of institu-
tional funding facilities and an
increase in financial aid.
Also the change in status increas-
es our state funding allowance. We
will be measured for funding on a
scale meant for doctoral institutions
which means more available funds
than the comprehensive university
scale. The specific amount of
increase hasn't been determined
yet.
With the additional resources the
university will invest in additional
faculty positions, pay raises for fac-
ulty, library needs and research
facilities that give undergraduates
the chance to share in some of the
hands on research with the graduate
students.
"This is a very positive effect on
undergraduates as well. Our under-
graduates are the heart and soul of
the university. These excellent
scholars are what helped us to reach
this level said Dr. Richard
Ringeisen, vice chancellor for acad-
emic affairs.
Ringeisen said the new program
will be incorporated into our exist-
ing programs and not a separate
entity. "We want the ship to rise as a
ship � not the bow then the stern
Ringeisen said.
The doctoral programs will
slighdy differ from the standard
doctoral degrees offered at other
North Carolina universities.
Included in the list of the standard
doctoral degrees in math,
English,science, etc will be inter-
disciplinary degrees such as the two
new doctoral programs recently
approved by the Board of
Governors: coastal resources man-
agement and medical biophysics. I
Instead of just offering programs
for the sake of numbers, the deci-
sion to include new ones will deter-
mine if they are both beneficial to
the university and are genuinely a
good program.
The first doctoral classes will
begin in '99. Seven to 10 Ph.Ds are
expected to be granted in five years
within the two new programs.
By the year 2005 the university
expects to be promoted to the doc-
toral I status, Ringeisen said. After
this, a place within the research
institutional level will be sought.
The advancement to a doctoral
II recognition would mean an
increase in students receiving dqe
toral degrees at the rate for 40-flN.
more per year. This will corrtfc after
more departments offer degrees.

comment, though her staff said she
is confident she will be victorious
no matter when the primaries are
held or how her boundaries are
affected.
The three-judge panel also ruled
that the May 5 primaries will be
postponed until the districts are
redrawn and gave the N.C. General
Assembly until Wednesday, April 8
to develop a plan and present a
schedule for redistricting. U.S.
Chief Justice William Rehnquist is
expected to rule promptly on State
Attorney General Mike Easley's
appeal and request for a stay.
Although Easley appealed the
three-judge panel's ruling to the
U.S. Supreme Court and requested
a stay on this issue until after the
primaries, the court took control of
redistricting on April 8 because the
General Assembly was not able to
come up with a timetable.
A timetable was not agreed upon
because the three-judge panel never
issued a ruling stating the problems
it found with the 12th district Also,
the Assembly is in a special session,
determined to discuss one issue�
uninsured children.
Postponing the primaries could
cost taxpayers a lot of money,
though the State Board of Elections
is hoping to postpone all primaries
and prevent money loss.
Candidates are also affected by
this ruling. If a stay is not granted,
campaigning will have to continue
throughout redistricting.
"It's a real burden for those of us
in the primaries said Duane
Kratzer, Republican first district
candidate for the U.S. House.
Further developments in the
plan for redistricting are pending on
Justice Rehnquist's decision
whether to grant a stay and appeal
the ruling.

Every good politician knows you have to play to your public. Be they hog
farmers, ballet dancers, or lunch ladies, every district or area has some sort o?
large constituency that must be addressed. In Greenville one would imagine
that students would comprise a slice of those elected's attention. Apparently
not.
In a town council meeting to discuss the renaming of 5th street to MLK
drive, a petition signed by nearly 4000 people, a good quantitv of those uni-
versity attendees, was blatantly ignored. TEC is less concerned with the spe-
cific opinion of the students as much as the fact that their opinion was ignored.
Students aren't alone. Inez Fridley recognized that the majority of her con-
stituents were against changing the name of West Fifth St but voted in favor
of the change anyway.
Never mind that Greenville is certainly, by all definitions of the word, a 'col-
lege' town. Forget even for a moment that the hospital would suffer without
the contribution of the Med school, and the town would suffer without the cul-
tural events the university brings. We can even temporarily abandon the
notion of the amount of money that would be lost by area businesses if thou-
sands of parents stopped coming to town to fill up hotels and eat in restaurants,
and the basic pointlessness of the wholes downtown club area without multi-
tudes of students to patronize it.
Students need to take a more active role in the community. Attend a city
council meeting; know who serves as the council representative in the district
in which you live.
Students at ECU don't vote nearly as much as they should; perhaps this
explains why the council does not consider our needs when everything is said
and done. We should let them know our interests and our stand on issues.
Whether it be because voting day was a hectic class load, or there was some-
thing more interesting on MTV, we help officials who won't listen to us into
office when we don't vote. Sure, we'll gladly sign a petition when it's put in
our faces, but if we don't get off our butts and make sure there are people in
office who listen to our opinion when we see fit to give it, like on this petition,
then it does us no good. Help us all out. Vote.
LETTER
to the Editor
Don't penalize spring enthusiasts
Recently there was an incident out-
side of Aycock Residence Hall
where a bunch of people were seen
playing with water guns and water
balloons. A few people did not like
the idea of others playing with
water guns. It ended with the cam-
pus police coming out and telling
the students to quit playing with
the water guns. Only two students
were actually written up for disor-
derly conduct.
I feel the group of students play-
ing with the water guns did not
mean any harm to others. I believe
they were just outside trying to
have fun on a nice, sunny day.
Living in the dorms does have a
tendency to. make one suffer from
spring fever. Of course, on the first
warm day, one would expect to see
people outside having fun and play-
ing around.
To those students who got wet
by a water gun during the incident,
it was only water. It could have
been a lot worse. The students
were just suffering from what you
call spring fever. What else is there
to do?

Visitation policy discriminator
the heterosexual lifestyle is
not supported by our resi-
dence halls don't think that
anyone should be discriminat-
ed against in any way because
of their sexual preference and
that is exactly what visitation
does to heterosexual students.
This being a state supported school
in the South I expected that the
university policies would lean
toward the conservative, but I'm
pleased to say that pur university is
very progressive. "What?" you say.
Well, as a third year veteran of cam-
pus living, I'm here to say that the
heterosexual lifestyle is not sup-
ported by our residence halls. This
may sound absurd but it is true.
Visitation policy states, "University
residence hall visitation hours are
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. daily. A resi-
dent may have guests of either sex
during these hours. Overnight
guests of the same sex are permit-
ted within individual residence hall
room throughout the night Fnday
and" Saturday So we are not
allowed to have anyone visit us on a
day other than Friday or Saturday,
and if your dad is stranded in town
on Friday or Saturday, you have to
tell him, "Sorry, you raised me; you
i hanged my diapers and are paying
for this room, but the university
says you can't stay here
What do other state supported
schools say? Well, I know from
experience that Appalachian State
University has the option of 24-
hour visitation in some dorms. This
allows the "student the choice to
decide if they want to live under
those visitation hours or not. Also
the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill gives students the
choice of picking a residence hall
that has 24-hour visitation Outside
' of North Carolina, numerous differ-
ent colleges and universities have
the same option. At Michigan State
University, many students have
never even heard the term visita-
tion policy because they have no
restnctions on guests at any timus.
But in any case, this policy disfa-
vors the majority of studentsion
campus. For me I don't have a girl-
friend. 1 amazingly find myself
attracted to the opposite sexUke
the majority of students. What Shis
means is when my boyfriend M-in
town, he most either pay to statin
a motel or we must sneak around to
allow him to stay in my roorrndi)n
the other hand, I know of a few gay
and lesbian couples who don't hive
to worry at all when their boyfriKjid
or girlfriend is in town for the w�k-
end. The university says it's OICFor
their partner to stay with them
because they have the same anato-
my. I even know a homosexual cou-
ple that lives together on campus.
Doesn't that seem great? You
can live on campus, have your par-
ents or financial aid pay for it and
be with your lover all at the same
time without breaking a single rule.
Now I'm not saying that homosex-
uality is wrong. That is a personal
choice, but 1 don't think I should be
penalized for being straight. I don't
think that anyone should be dis-
criminated against in any way
because of their sexual preference
and rhat is exactly what visitation
does to heterosexual students.
I wonder if my boyfriend would
consider a sex change.

Puppet secret key in TV success
Take a sitcom of today,
which is usually about a gag-
gle of pretty-faced twenty-
somethings that don't have
jobs Replace him with
Gobo, the cute and fuzzy
4 alien puppet from the
Fraggle Dimension
Since I'm sure that each one of you
has watched TV at least once in
your life, allow me to tell you about
a new sitcom pilot I am working on.
I have, just as many of you good
people out there, spent many hours
of my life basking in the warm glow
of the television. The great thing is
that I can remember stuff that I
watched when I was four years old
and retain the dialogue word for
word. That is just how my mind
works. I am blessed with a brain
that, when taking a test and scram-
bling to figure out the square root of
nine, will automatically start play-
ing and replaying the theme to-
Doogie Howser. Do do do dooo, do
da doo da dooo. Remember that
one?
Of course you do. That's how
everybody's mind works. Studies
have shown that every family in
America (where we live) watches
an average of ten hours of television
per day. These studies, of course,
were of my own family. Don't get
me wrong. I did attempt to get out
and study other people, but no one
would let me sit and watch TV with
them for an extended period of
time. Apparently I am the only one
in the world that likes to shout
advice to the characters on screen.
Now, let me start off by naming
the first show that comes to my
mind when I think of childhood.
Fraggle Rod. I remember watching
that even before Mr. Rogers or
Sesame Street. That was my first les-
son in characterization.
Remember? Moky was a stoner.
Gobo and Wembly were always
going together to the "Mess
Around Cave Boober washed his
socks. Uncle Traveling Matt just
wanted to get the Hell out of that
hole in the ground. And Red (the
one with the Afro puffs) well, we all
know what she did. Yes, Fraggle
Rock taught me that every charac-
ter must have a quirk. It was basi-
cally The Real World starring mup-
pets. ;
The next show I remembjer is
Mori and Mindy. Oh, this wasjvery
influential on my life. It made me
stop thinking about just normal
things and start considering- the
possibilities of a male alien laying
an egg and giving birth to comedian
Jonathan Winters. It happened. I
svear.
And finally, I remember. At.
Poor little Alf. So misunderstood.
It was at this point that I realized
that if you want to have a hit show,
you must incorporate a puppet. So,
here is my idea.
'Fake a sitcom of today, which is
.usually about a gaggle of prcrry-
faced twenty-somethings that don't
have jobs because it might lake
away time from their busy day of
complaining about their date in
trendy coffee shops. Fake away the
one that portrays an actor, (ycayou,
LeBlanc! You know, 1 could Ik
famous if my name sounded �xot-
ic.) Replace him with Gobo: the
cute and fuzzy alien puppet from
the Fraggle Dimension and have
him manipulated and voiced by
Jonathan Winters.
Sound crazy? Well, well just see
what the Nielsons say. Until chen,
let's just suffer through the barrage
of Friends spinoffs and enjoy Jthat
last episode of Seinfeld, bee i
once that's gone, it's open sc son
for Gobo! Ill keep you poi ted.
Nami-N'unu.

Miccah Smith
senior write
This is one of the CDs you pop
into the deck with a wince, know-
ing what's going to happen even
before you get blasted. I mean, the
concept is fine: the liberation of
thought and the eradication of
oppression and big business
through the purgative qualities of
speed metal are indeed noble caus-
es. But it's just a teensy bit, urn,
melodramatic.
Method 51's new self-titled
release (on the PC Music label, no
less) is, I suppose, just another
attempt to fling society's ills up into
the collective face of humanity so
that we can breathe in the putres-
cence of our existence and, natural-
ly, feel bad. Then we can over-
throw the government and enjoy
the benefits of anarchy.
These guys were the acne-rid-
den teens who sat around in the

they should have been hitting on

Do you like gospel music?
This is the question posed to lis-
teners by Make-Up frontman Ian
Svenonius on his band's latest
release, In Mass Mind. It's not a friv-
olous question. The Make-Up are
the originators (and sole practition-
ers) of the glorious Gospel Yeh-Yeh
sound, and so the listener's enjoy-
ment is of the utmost importance.
What is Gospel Yeh-Yeh, you
ask? Now, that's an interesting
question. Gospel Yeh-Yeh is the
musical bastard child of gospel,
soul, funk and noise rock. It takes
the fiery ecstasy of the most fervent
gospel rave-ups and mixes it with
the wildest sexual fevers of early
Prince, with a little John Spencer

Percolator brings poetry
slam to Greenville
First Slam
Saturday night
John Davis
assistant lifestyle editor
Sometimes poetry readings can get
awful boring. You've most likely
been present for one. A droopy,
somber poet, dressed in all black
steps up to the microphone and
reads a poem entitled "Death, like
a black rose, consumes me" in a
voice that's almost as excited as Ben
Stein in Ferris Beuller's Day Off. Or
the poetry is actually good, but the
poet is sleepy, or lilts too much, or
thinks he's God's gift to literature,
or all three. � .
In an effort to throw all that out
of the window, ECU students
Dwayne Wright and Brandon Mise
decided to start up a local Poetry
Slam. What is a Slam, you may ask?
A Slam is a competition between
poets, juried by audience members.
The very first Slam began over ten
years ago in Chicago, and in the
past decade, Slams have been pop-
ping up all over the country. There
are currently three other Slams in
North Carolina, one in Asheville
(the Asheville team won the Slam
nationals in 1995), one in Winston
Salem and one in Raleigh.

complete sentences and hopefully to

Redneck culture lesson 29:
The southern rock cover band
The weird and wild
side of life
Andy Turner
lifestyle editor
It's Saturday night and you find
yourself in a dive, smoke so thick
your grandchildren will be born
with nicotine patches on their fore-
heads. You wonder why you just
shelled out three bucks to the guy
at the door, wearing a hat that says,
"Head Ass Kicker You walk
immediately to the bar in search of
the biggest bucket of brain killer
you can down in a hurry. You have
to prepare yourself for that trea-
sured staple of redneck culture: the
southern rock cover band.
First, let me lamely justify my
use of "redneck Writer Roy
Blount Jr in a recent Southern
Living article, said before you can
use the derogatory "redneck you
should at least admit to yourself
that you have redneck tendencies.
Sure, I'm honest with myself about
my redneckisms. I once had a car
die on me while George Jones' "If
Drinking Don't Kill Me, Her
Memory Will" was playing and I
blubbered like a baby. Last week I
sat down for a meal of scrambled
eggs. Ho Hos and Miller High Life.
I know I've got it in me.
So, you have
your beer and
you take in the
place. A pleas-
antly plump girl
is wearing a
sweatshirt that
has her name
spelled out in
gold glitter. She
has big bleached
hair, hair so big
she could bend
over, swing and
take out an entire
Rotary Club.
She's arguing
with her
boyfriend, who
has a hat on that
says, "Poon
Hound and a
World Wrestling Federation T-shirt.
All around are guys in "No
Fear "Big Johnson" and other T-
shirts that proclaim them to be pos-
sessors of oversized male genitalia.
Some guys are wearing stock car
racing paraphernalia. Two guys are
wearing identical "Rainbow
Warrior" Jeff Gordon racing jackets.
Presumably, they're pit crew mem-
bers blowing off steam.
You ready to raise some hell?

The girls are wearing their
Saturday night outfits, done-up to

"His rapping style is unique, it's
gangster, but it's meaningful. His
delivery is different than any
other Uhh, Master P.
That quote goes to show you
that everyone is entitled to their
own opinion.
The state of Louisiana is best
known for the wicked, week long
party called Mardi Gras. It is also
known for cool jazz and its
hotspicy foods like gumbo and
jambalaya. But what some of you
may not know is that Louisiana not
only has the highest poverty rate in
the United States, but it also has
one of the highest murder and
crime rates in the South. While
most are familiar with New
Orleans' reputation, not many out-
side of the Deep South are familiar
with the reputation of Baton
Rouge.
So what does that tell you?
Somebody HAD to represent
Baton Rouge.
Priority Records recording artist
Young Bleed is that man represent-
ing the Bloody Stick. His objective
is to tell of the trials and tribulations
that he went through growing up on
Baton's south side. He communi-
cates this through his debut album,
My Balk and My Wont.
Normally, this column gives a
breakdown of some of the songs
before passing the final verdict
along, but this is very difficult given
Bleed's style of flow. It can best be
described as a blend of Master P,
who is featured on the CD and
serves as the album's executive pro-
ducer, and a slower paced Bone-
Thugs & Harmony. If you are not a
fan of either of these artists, then
stop reading and turn the page, for
this CD isn't for you.
For those still interested, Young
Bleed describes himself as a ghetto
poet, who was influenced by urban
folk poets such as Blowfly and
Rudy Ray Moore (Dolemite!).
Bleed says that he provides a voice
for his people still struggling in the
ghetto. In the press release
received with the CD, it tells of
tight beats, thick basslines and
Bleed's prophetic lyrics.
This CD was listened to from
beginning to end, and it's even
being listened to as this review is
being typed, and these beats,
basslines, and lyrics must have
been cut out of the album before it
was finally released. To make it
simple, this CD sucks!
First of all. Bleed's lyrics aren't
that good. He claims to be telling
the story of hard times in Baton
Rouge, but it sounds like the same
old, same old. Murder, money,
women; we've all heard the same
storyfrom better performers and
some people didn't like what they
heard then, and those same will
definitely not want to hear it now.
Strike one!
Master P is featured on this CD.
Strike two!
Let's move on to Bleed's beats.
The beats are all right and could
have you tapping your feet for a
minute, but he can't seem to keep
the order consistent from track to
track. (Straight, alright, straight,
straight, wack). For example, the
beat on the first track, "Keep It
Real has a consistent chime that
sounds like something in an old
kung-fu movie and it didn't seem to
fit the song. But track five, "Mo'
Money has a nice beat and could
have you nodding your head. But
for the most part, the beats are as
tired as the lyrics.
Strike three! Yer out!
To wrap it up, this album was
given a 2 simply because I nodded
my head a little to a couple of the
beats. Then again, it might have
just been a muscle spasm or some-
thing. A quote comes to mind that
Bleed said: "I'm like a ghetto
prophet kickin gangsta politics

politics to yourself.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The
Judds reunited to honor late coun-
try music great Tammy Wynette,
and while they were at it threw
some darts at country radio stations
that no longer program Wynette's
music.
"Tammy's up there laughing at
country radio today Wyndnna
Judd said Thursday after joining
her mother on the Ryman
Auditorium stage. The one-time
duo act was part of a 75-minute
memorial to the singer of "Stand By
Your Man" and many other hits.
The Judds did not sing together at
the memorial to Wynette, who died
Monday at 55.
Like many veteran country
singers, Wynette had long
stopped getting airplay on most
country radio stations. Such ait-
play is vital to sell-
ing records.
In March,
Johnny Cash cele-
brated a Grammy

Billboard featuring
an old photograph
of him making an

ad copy said,
"American

the Nashville music
establishment and

Other older artists
have expressed similar
sentiments, including
George Jones and Willie Nelson. At
the Wynette memorial, Naomi
Judd urged fans to contact their
radio stations.
"Ask that her (Wynette's)
records get played she said. "Ask

dischord thrown in for good mea-

But more importantly, Gospel
Yeh-Yeh is a philosophy, a way of
life, a certain unique perspective
on the world. It's about living,
experiencing, enjoying even the
lowest of heartaches. It's about giv-
ing vent to your emotions, becom-
ing a part of the music as it
becomes a part of you. Get caught
up in the rapture, people, and join
the unstoppable Gospel Yeh-Yeh
groove! Can I hear an amen!
Ahem. The evangelical portion
of the review will now come to an
end.
Though it's difficult not to lose
yourself in the rhythm of the
Make-Up, I will try to keep some
of my critical distance intact. But
keep in mind that fighting the beat
is antithetical to what the Gospel
Ych-Yeh's all about. If you don't
lose yourself, you're kind of miss-
ing the point.
As a great jazz musician once
said about rock and roll, "Every
song sounds like it's about fuck-
ing And as we all know, maintain-
ing your mental distance there is
just the wrong way to go if you real-
ly want to enjoy yourself.
If that seems to go against the
grain of gospel music, think again.
Gospel is all about making a glori-
ous noise, and the religious fervors
it whips up aren't too far off from
sexual ecstasies. Feeling the power
of the Lord is a powerful thing, and
it's that sensation the Make-Up are
trying to conjure in their audience.
They do this through a dense,
multi-layered sound that stimulates
several parts of the brain at once.
The driving back-beat laid down
by bass player Michelle Mae and
drummer Steve Gamboa hits the
inner core, the lizard brain, the
most basic instincts that make you
want to move. Just above that is the
stumble-step guitar work of James
Canty, keeping those with a more
refined ear happy.
And, of course, fronting it all are
the incandescent vocals of Ian
Svenonius. Svenonius (if that is his
real name) is like a demonic James
Brown or an unendurably horny
Prince, wailing non-stop through
each and every song. It's
Svenonius' voice that really propels
the Make-Up into that uncontrol-
lable level of the best rapture
gospel. He sounds at almost every
moment like he's ready to explode,
whether into orgasm or a thousand
pieces I can't really tell.
Even when he's in a low-key
groove, as on the heartbreaking
"Centre of the Earth he launches
into uncontrollable screaming.
"Centre of the Earth in fact, is
probably the best track on In Mass
Mind. Svenonius is really down on
this one, feeling in his heartache
like he's been kicked into his grave
"You told me it's just dirt he bab-
bles, "and din can't hurt. But it
burns, baby. It bums! It BUUUU-
URRNS
Hmmm. Perhaps that wasn't the
best thing to quote. Without
Svenonius' fire and brimstone
delivery, it just loses something.
But that's the case with most of the
songs here. When you boil them
down, even things with tides like
"Live in the Rhythm Hivep or
"Caught Up in the Rapture" are
really just songs about love and sex
and music. Any. Motown record or
Prince album could give you the
same stuff. But nowhere else can
you get the sheer rawness of the
Make-Up and the Gospel Yeh-Yeh
sound.
So how much of this is serious,
and how much of it is theatre? To
be honest, I can't tell. The Make-
Up obviously love the Prlhceand
James Brown music they're emu-
lating, but they don't play it with a
straight face. And while the gospel
aspects of their sound are real, their
use of the religious side of gospel
music seems playful. Whatever the
case may be, it makes for a very
entertaining package. If you can
stand the more off-key aspects of
Svenonius' vocals (the prime attrac-
tion for me), In Mass Mind is a
treat.
It's soul music from hell. It's
what the Black Crowes might
sound like if Chris Robinson actu-
ally had a soul. It's unstoppable,
inescapable, the sound of sexual
armageddon piped directly into
your living room. It's Gospel Yeh-
Yeh, and it's gonna make you wet!
It's gonna make you sweat! It's
gonna make you throw down in the
aisles like a cat in heat! Give your-
self up to it! You can't escape it! It's
coming for you! Right around the
comer! Today!
Can I hear an amen?

ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR
Many people come across
unfortunate surprises when they
first set foot onto campus. Two
freshmen athletes who came to
ECU had the rug pulled out from
under their feet when they
arrived in Greenville from foreign
nations.
Kelly Niklason's father taught
school for American children
stationed in foreign nations. She
spent a year and a half of high
school in England, but her father
was transferred to the
Netherlands shortly before she
graduated.
In the Netherlands, her
counselor made several serious
errors in her transcript, making
her high school GPA seem much
lower than the 3.5 she had
earned.
"The counselor just gave me
credits randomly Niklason said.
"The counselor gave me a lot
less credits. He never made any
sense anyway
The clearing house, the
NCAA organization that
determines eligibility for student
athletes, declared Niklason a
non-qualifier and prohibited her
from playing for the track and
field team.
"We only allow partial
qualifiers and qualifiers to
compete said Kathleen Hailock,
assistant commissioner for the
CAA.
"I didn't look at my transcript
until it was too late Niklason
said.
This was devastating to
Niklason, who was hoping to
continue her family's tradition of
athletics at ECU. Her father
played football for the Pirates and
her mother was a cheerleader
here. Many of her other relatives
also played sports at other
colleges.

the losing effort.
Antaine Jones and Ryan

The nightcap was similar to
the opener in that the Pirates

who also went 2 13 innings. Bill

one run, but it was costly and he
picked up the loss.
Massimo lead the Pirates from
the plate by going 2-4 and driving
in three runs. He was helped by
Billy Benson who was 2-3 with
two RBI's.
Sunday was all together
different for the Pirates. ECU
committed only one error and had
three innings in which they rallied
and scored four or rhore runs.

going 3-4 with 3 RBI's and 3 runs

respectively.
Foye Minton spread eight hits
over eight innings and gave up
three runs in earning the victory
which raised his record to 4-1.
Conrad Clark pitched the ninth
inning and preserved the win for
Minton.
The Pirates are taking on

being careful to check the
conference's rules before she

Niklason said.
Likewise, Michael Huec was
looking forward to playing college
tennis in America but received a
rude awakening when he arrived.
He found out that an SAT score
was required by the NCAA to
participate in college athletics his
freshman year.
Huec took the Test of English
as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)
proficiency test in May of 19 in
his native Austria but was
unaware of the NCAA
requirement until he came to
ECU. ECU requires either
TOEFL or SAT for admission for

SENIOR WRI TF.R
The ECU softball team
continued their winning ways
over the weekend, sweeping two
home doubleheaders and
extending their winning streak to
nine games.
The Pirates showed
tremendous pitching skill on
Saturday to defeat Winthrop 2-0
in the first game and 3-2 in the
finale.
Pirate starter Jami Bendle had
an outstanding performance in
the first game. She struck out five
and allowed only four hits in the
complete game victory.
ECU broke the scoreless tie in
the third inning. Freshman
second baseman Keisha
Sheppcrson singled to start the
inning, then stole second base.
She advanced to third on a
sacrifice bunt and later scored on a
passed ball.
Amy Hooks singled and scored
an insurance run in the fifth. That
was all the
offense that
Bendle
would need
as she
improved to
11-6 on the
season.
The win
was the 75th
of her career.
The great
pitching
continued in
the second
game with
D e n i s e
Reagan
earning her
14th win of
the season.
Reagan
scattered
seven hits,
allowing two
unearned
runs and
striking out
five.
The Pirates were led at the
plate by freshman slugger
Jennifer Halpcm. Halpem drove
in all three Pirate runs going 3-3
and stealing a base.
Halpem got ECU on the board
with a two-run single in the first
and drove in the game winner
with a single in the fifth.
"We played hard Halrn
said. "People got on base and
that's what we need to do "I just
tried to do my job and get them
in i
Over the weekend, the ECU softball team scored victories over
opponents Winthrop and Coastal Carolina to improve their current
winning streak to nine straight.

PAIN KILLER.
F or fast relief from the nagging ache of taxes, we
recommend TIAA-CREF SRAs. SRAs are tax-
deferred annuities that can help you build additional
assets�money that can make the difference between
living and living �in retirement.
Contributions to SRAs are conveniently deducted
from your salary on a pretax basis. The result? More
money invested. Fewer taxes now. And since investment
earnings are tax deferred until you receive them as
income, the money you don't send to Washington can
work even harder fox you.
What else do SRAs offer? A full range of investment
choices, a helpful loan feature, and the financial expertise
ol'TIAA-CREF, the world's largest retirement system.
Now More Ways to Meet Your Goals
Today TIAA-CREF can help you meet even more
of your financial objectives, with IRAs, mutual funds,
and more. We'll help you select the solutions that suit
your needs. Visit your benefits office or call us at

ECU record. Keisha Shepperson
went 2-2 and drove in three runs.
Reagan was sharp again in the
second game as the Pirates won 2-
1. Coastal Carolina scored it's only
run of the day in the fourth and
took a 1-0 lead. ECU battled back
in the bottom half of the inning,
loading the bases and scoring two
runs. Polonius led off the inning
with a hard ground ball that
Coastal shortstop Kacee
Crumpackcr couldn't
handle. Polonius would
later score on a fielder's
choice. The Pirates would
add another unearned run
to take the lead.
Reagan scattered eight
hits and worked out of
several jams to secure the
victory. Many of her five
strikeouts came with
runners in scoring position.
When asked about
pitching under pressure,
Reagan said that it doesn't
really bother her.
"It's okay because I
have a good defense
behind me Reagan said.
The win was Reagan's 15th.
She has won 14 out or her last 15
decisions and has a good shot at
winning 20 this season.
"I really haven't thought about
it Reagan said. "I just want to
win the Big South
ECU is on track to do just that.
After this weekend ECU is atop
the Big South standings with a 7-
1 conference record.
The games against Winthrop
and Coastal were the first home
games for the Pirates in over a
month. Halpern said that the
team is excited to finally be
playing at home
"It great to be home
Halpern said. It's great to see all

in tournament
SYDNEY, Australia (AP) �
Australia won its third
consecutive match at the
Colorado Cup men's field hockey
tournament Sunday, beating India

performance. Earlier Sunday,
Argentina got goals from Jorge
Lombi in the 28th minute and

the win, while Jeremy Hiskins
and Stephen Davies also scored
for the hosts.
Virinder Singh, in the fifth

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) �Matt

The 19-year-old Georgia lech
sophomore shot a final-round 72

affixed to his face. In the
evenings, he slept in the Crow's

"It's been a magical week. It's
one that I'll be able to tell my
kids, my grandkids Kuchar said.

How to Keep Your Kids Free of Drugs.
Rule 4.
Set The Rules.
Kids need to know exactly what the niles are. The
rules have to be clear, consistent, reasonable. And
enforced. Every kid will try to find out exactly
how far he or she can go. And drugs are no place
for trial and error. To learn more about what kind
of rules to set and how to enforce them, call for a
free parents handbook.

I went to this party a couple of weeks ago -
good music, lots of beer, and PJ. When I was
searching for my friends, I saw a tank that looked
like the kind used to fill up hot air balloons. I
thought to myself, "Does Bozo the clown live here?"
Being the Curious George that I am, I went
around to investigate. I found the guy who was
throwing the party and asked him why there was a
helium tank? He smiled smugly and began to tell me
that this was not a helium tank, but a tank filled with
nitrous oxide. "It gives you a great buzz he
proudly exclaimed.
He proceeded to tell me that this "buzz lasts
about one minute. Within seconds you feel a tingling
sensation that seems to move in waves up and down
your body. Then he grabbed a red balloon from one
of his buddies and inhaled the inflated balloon. He
closed is eyes, held his breath, and turned white as a
ghost. I thought for sure that he was going to pass
out. Apparently, the nitrous oxide momentarily
starves the brain of oxygen and you cease to breathe
for just a few seconds.
After watching my friend "catch his buzz I
definitely knew this was something that I did not
want to try. The next day, to further satisfy my
curiosity, I surfed the internet looking for info about
nitrous oxide. I found that the list of effects
accompanying nitrous oxide included disorientation,
paranoia, auditory and visual hallucinations, nausea,
tunnel vision, dizziness, temporary loss of breath,
and possible asphyxiation! The nitrous oxide tank
itself can be dangerous because nitrous oxide is
extremely cold. It can cause freeze burns if it comes
into contact with your skin. Also if the nozzle or
valve on the tank is knocked off, the tank will
explode and go straight through the wall. Plus you
never know what was in the tank before the nitrous
oxide or where the tank came from!
So, Thanks but no tanks

With my brother Joe being such a goof-off lately, it's hard to believe that I'm not rubbing it in that, come May 16,111 be
one of the 2300 or so dressed in black filing across the fields of Ficklen. My apricot-colored tassel will help distinguish me from
the crowd as a nursing major, but from the top seats of the stadium, I'm not sure that will make it any easier to pick me out of the
bunch!
Considering the cost of college in general, I've considered myself
pretty lucky with this one. After all these years, it boils down to 25
bucks and a few forms. Half the battle, though, is
keeping up with it all, since applications for
graduation are typically filed about two
semesters beforehand.
Of course, I did spend a little more than
that, with announcements, invitations, and cards, all
of which required postage. Then there were all those
resumes I sent out, each with a whisper hoping for a
great job to help pay off those studentloans! Between the
financial aid office and the bookstore staff, I think more folks
on-campus know about where my money goes than my
bank! ' . . . VVV
� c - As far as people go, I'm astounded afhowmany
want to come see the ceremony. Weather permitting,
anybody can pack the seats in the stadium, but if it gets
nioved inside to Minges, it's firstcome, first-served.
That's when I'll have a problem, since most of my family;
is ALWAYS late! Still, that brother of nune may '�
NEVER finish college at the rate HE's going, so they
figure this is the only chance they may have to see the . �
bubbles and balloons (hey, you gotta find SOME way to stand out in the crowd!).
Now, with the cap & gown fitted, the announcements in the mail, and all of the proper forms signed, there's only one little
catch standing between me and that very important little piece of paper I have to pass all my finals
Hake Your Summer 'Work for You
Dear Joe,
"Summer breeze makes me feel finerunning through the Jasmines of my mind It's almost summer. The semester just flew by
Its hard with so many things going on to pack everything in; classes, studying, club meetings, and the list goes on and
on. But reading this Student Life Page, I remember this poem about some services to help students find a job. I went over to
Career Services to check it out. I got help with my resume, tips on how to search on the internet for jobs and even a schedule of
workshops, including one on practicing interviewing. They had samples of everything, I was a little relieved after leaving that
office. You can find a lot of the information on the Career Services Homepage. Just go to the the ECU homepage and click on
Student Life and then Career Services. I have to run now. Good luck. See you around.

As the semester begins to wind down, everyone's thoughts are turning to what ties ahead. Whether that be summer
school, graduation, or simply classes for the fall, most of us are finding that a stop by the Financial Aid Office tops our
'To Do" list. v
While most of the summer school aid deadlines have passed, there are still plenty of reasons to stop by. For starters
anyone who has received aid at any time from CoUege Foundation (Stafford Loans) that is planning to finish school in May'
MUST schedule an exit interview to review all obligations to their lenders after graduation. If this is not done, a tag will be
placed on the student's academic record, and that in itself could interfere with graduation requirements.
For those of us hanging around for a while yet, there is good news from the tedious work of Financial Aid forms The
process is now both easier (thankfuUy) and faster than ever, thanks to the implementation of electronic filing. Turn-around-
times from the federal processor have been reduced from 6-8 weeks to roughly 14 business days when transmitted by
computer. There are a few kinks in the system still, but another technological breakthrough is available to help smooth out the
wrinkles �the financial aid office has email!
To contact the Office of Financial Aid via computer, the address is "facques@ecuvm.cis.ecu.edu For more traditional
means of communication, the phone number is (252) 328-6610, and of course, anyone is welcomed to stop by to make an
appointment for the more detailed questions. Good luck, and remember�the earlier you apply, the better your chances for aid!

ASSISTANT LIFESTYLE EDITOR
Carroll Dashiell is that guy you're
apt to see playing bass or keyboards
off to the side during ECU Jazz
Ensemble performances. When
he's not playing, he'll stand up and
bounce along to the music. He's the
guy madly snapping his fingers,
tapping his feet and smiling a big
big smile. You might evea say he's
filled with some kind of energy,
perhaps the energy of jazz itself.
There's a lot of energy over in the
school of music this time of year.
Two weeks before the annual
Emerald City Jazz Festival,
musicians are moving in out of
practice rooms, the ECU Jazz
Ensemble is congregating
downstairs and Dashiell, the
ensemble's director, has a lot on his
plate. As we sat in his office, he
stacked piles of papers and forms
and promotional packets in his
briefcase, or pulled them out of his
briefcase, muttering, "this goes
here, and these go there and this
should be over here
Dashiell's office looks like a jazz
hall of fame. On nearly every wall
are signed photos of jazz legends,

photos of Dashiell with celebrities
such as Wynton Marsalis and
James Earl Jones, but if one had to
figure out his priorities from his
wall decorations, his students
would beat out Jay Leno any day.
There are literally hundreds of
photos of Dashiell with the various
incarnations of the Ensemble or
posing with ear-to-ear smiling
students adorning the walls, his
desk, his piano and his computer.
Even as we prepare for the
interview no less than five students
walk in his office "just to say hey to
Mr. D
Dashiell, who is himself an
accomplished musician, feels
that it's very important to
share his talent with his
students. "The students are,
for me, the focal point. 1
always felt like, what little bit
I knew, I wanted to give
back. I wanted to share with
younger musicians, not
necessarily in age, but in
musical maturity, and I've
always felt that it's better to
learn from than the people
who are actually doing it, as
far as the performance is concerned.
"It's better to find out what
happened on the bandstand from
somebody who was on the
bandstand last night than from a
critic or an educator who has
studied it but doesn't have that
experience in the performing part
of it. I think that is something we
need to focus on for the students,
because jazz is an oral tradition
For Dashiell, this oral tradition is
important; it's part of what
influenced his decision to pursue
jazz. "Jazz is America's only original
true art form. Jazz has influenced all
of the major music trends. It is the
foundation for commercial music,
blues, reggae, country, RckB, rock
and roll.
"Before jazz, popular music was
the folk music, and jazz evolved
from that in New Orleans, and then
from 1920 up until the middle
forties, jazz was the popular music
in the States and even the other
countries were highly receptive to
it
It is this oral tradition and sense
of history that keeps Dashiell in the
classroom, not only instructing his
'Jazz is
Americas only
original true art
form. Jazz has
influenced all of
the major music
trends. It is the
foundation for
commercial music,
blues, reggae,
country, R&B,
rock and roll. "

musicians, but also teaching his
popular jazz history classes.
"My two favorite classes are jazz
ensemble and jazz history. With
jazz history, I teach the class a little
bit differently than some of my
colleagues. One of the reasons is
that I'm pumped up about the
medium, jazz. I've found that I've
had success in reaching non-music
majors. "I think that's very
important because we need jazz
supporters just like we need jazz
musicians. If we can reach them,
we're perpetuating the music.
"And I enjoy teaching it. With
jazz it encompasses so many things-
it's American history, American
literature, American music. It is,
like all the arts, directly associated
with society and historical ideas
The Festival is a highlight for
Dashiell each year, because he looks
forward to exchanging some of
these cultural and societal ideas
with some of the movers and
shakers in the industry. He's excited
for his students, who he's watched
grow this past year.

A lot of folks have been comparing
Nicholas Payton to Louis Armstrong, and
with good reason. Payton is from
Armstrong's place of origin, New Orleans
and he plays a mean trumpet. Like
Armstrong, Payton's music is filled to the
brim with the warmth and brightness
characteristic of Armstrong's early playing,
but he's not just a Louis clone.
On the contrary, Payton's influences
include modern musicians, such as
Wynton Marsalis, who has taken an
interest in Payton's career. While he does
reflect on the older New Orleans runes,
Payton gives them a more modern reading,
bringing the turn-of-the-century tunes up
to date, all ready for the upcoming turn of
this century.

ASSISTANT LIPESTYLE EDITOR
Renowned pianist and band
leader Benny Green will be
performing with the ECU Jazz
Ensemble Friday night. Green
is the latest in a long line of
stellar musicians who have
performed with ECU's award-
winning group. In recent years,
� such jazz legends as Bob
Mintzer, Maceo Parker,
Wynton Marsalis, Christian
McBride and the Yellowjackets
have appeared onstage with the
Ensemble, as well as
participate in workshop
sessions with the Ensemble
members.
Green, who has played with
Art Blakey and received the
Protege Prize from Oscar
Peterson, is one of today's up-
and-coming jazz musicians.
He has recorded eight albums
and is basking in the success of
his latest album, Kaleidoscope.
His music, while being young
and fresh, is steeped in the
swing tradition of Ray Brown
and Oscar Peterson.
He will also be participating
in workshops with the
Ensemble the week before the
Festival. During this time they
will rehearse and prepare for
Friday's show.
The ECU Jazz Ensemble
has had a pretty big year
themselves. In the past twelve
months, they have performed
at the Montreux Jazz Festival,
several Jazz conventions, and
have appeared on The Tonight
Show. Thev released a CD,
Jazz Directions 2, which
features performances from
recent Jazz Festivals. To cap it
all, they received the Jazz Fest
USA Gold Award, winning
out over Jazz Ensembles from
schools all over the nation.
This is all on top of giving
performance after performance
at Mendenhall's Jazz at Night
series, playing individual and
combo gigs at local coffee
shops and bars, and being
university students. They have
to take Math 1065 just like
every other ECU student.
Somehow, though, they
manage to keep the music
lively and organic, which is no
mean feat for professional
musicians who can spend all
day practicing.
In fact, Wynton Marsalis
has called the ECU Jazz
Ensemble "one of the best
college bands around and it
shows. Their shows are packed
with vitality and energy, but
also a musical maturity that
belies the fact that these
musicians are all between the
ages of 18 and 25.
After the Festival, the
merry-go-round doesn't stop.
This summer, the band will be
performing at the legendary
Bird Land Club in New York,
The JVC Jazz Festival and the
Duke Ellington School for the
Performing Arts.
Benny Green performs with
the ECU Jazz Ensemble
Friday at 8 p.m. in Wright
Auditorium. Tickets are free
for ECU students and faculty,
$5 for general public.

Spyro Gyra
to
JOHN DAVIS
ASSISTANT l.irtvn 1.1. EDI 1 UK
Twenty-one years ago, most of us
were either still crawling around in
diapers or toddling about in
preschool. The popular jazz band
Spyro Gyra, however, were just
where we are now; they had
recently graduated from college
and were playing clubs in Buffalo,
NY, getting ready to release their
first record. (That's right, they-still
had records back then.)
, Of course, they weren't always
called Spyro Gyra. They were, for a
short while, the unnamed band
that played "Thursday Night Jazz'
at a Buffalo bar until the club
owner pestered them for a name.
"He was being drunk and
obnoxious and demanded a name
said Spyro Gyra
saxophonistproducer Jay
Beckenstein.
"So, as a joke I told him to call us
spirogyra, after an algae I'd written
a paper on in my first year of
college. He spelled it wrong on the
playbill and that name just stuck
The band, which also features Tom
Schuman on
keyboards, Julio
Fernandez on
guitars, Joel
Rosenblatt on drums
and Scott Ambush on
bass went on to record
twenty-one albums of
their pristine, energetic
Latin sound. By their
second album, they'd gone
platinum and were playing for
thousands of fans every night.
Beckenstein, of course couldn't
be happier. "I Just love it- not only
have I managed to play music, but
me and my compadres are
respected for our creativity
These days, Spyro Gyra is a
household name in contemporary
jazz circles. The band ranks right
up there with such jazz luminaries
as George Benson, Pat Metheny
and Herbie Hancock. Some critics
attribute Spyro Gyra as the fathers
of what folks now call "smooth
jazz though Beckenstein feels
otherwise.
"I wouldn't say we started it he
said. "There were a lot of other
musicians that all helped develop
that sound He named Benson,
"We were all
getting started ten
years before
'smoothazz radio.
When it did
start up,
programmers
picked a select
group of bands,
and sometimes
these were the
ones with the
prettiest, and
least interesting
sound. Smooth
jazz radio has
pretty narrow
vision
Jav Beckenstein
Metheny and David Sanborn as
examples and went on to explain
that the idea of smooth jazz is
primarily a marketing concept
fostered by radio formats. He sees
Spyro Gyra as part of the "jazz
tree proceeding from the
influences of Miles Davis and
Weather Report, rather than just
being the mascot for smooth jazz
radio. Of course, by the time
smooth jazz radio did start up,
Spyro Gyra were already ten years
into it and their music was already
widely known.
"We were all getting started ten
years before "smooth
jazz" radio. When it did start
up, programmers picked a select
group of bands, and sometimes
these were the ones with the
prettiest, and least interesting
sound. Smooth jazz radio has
pretty narrow vision
Beckenstein, who started the
band in the late 70s and has acted
as producer on the band's albums, is
also the band's primary songwriter,
and strives for creativity, though he
admits its sometimes difficult. "You
just have to keep trying. It doesn't
mean you always succeed, but you
keep your ears open to anything
new, and try to
discourage the
same-old-same-
old
This search for
something more
than the same old
same old is part
of what led
Beckenstein to
record the band's
new live album,
Road Scholars,
differently than
the band's last,
Access All Areas, which was recorded
over three nights in Florida.
"For this album, we recorded
every single night of the tour, that
way nobody was thinking, 'Oh- the
tape machine is on It freed us up
to be more adventurous and I think
we captured that sense of adventure
on the album
That sense of adventure will fill

final night of this year's jazz

Payton
continued fiom page 2
Payton went to school at the
famous New Orleans Center
for the Creative Arts, and then
studied under Ellis Marsalis.
He has performed with
trumpet master Clark Terry,
drummer Elvin Jones and
others. He played Oran "Hot
Lips" Page in the movie Kansas
City and is featured on almost
all of the twelve tracks of the
movie's spundtrack. He
recently won a Grammy for his
album with Doc Cheatham.
The trumpeter is only 24
years old, and yet his
seriousness about jazz would
seem to suggest that he is
much, much older, He's been
focused on jazz since he asked
his father for a trumpet when
he was four years old. He's
taken his schooling very
seriously and has shied away
from being promoted as one of
the hot new jazz musicians in
the industry today. Rather, he
has been focusing on
becoming a serious musician,
something that has earned the

respect of Wynton Marsalis,
Joshua Redman and Roy
Hargrove; all three appear on
his upcoming album, Payton's
Plate, due out June 9.
Performing with Payton will
be guitarist Mark Whitfield,
who has appeared on one of
Payton's albums. Payton also
performed on Whitfield's
debut album, True Blue, and
the two recorded a tribute to
Herbie Hancock with bassist
Christian McBride. Whitfield
was also on the Kansas City
soundtrack. He has also
appeared on albums with
saxophonist Courtney Pine.
He is well-known for his
versatility and maturity. He
graduated from the Berklee
College of Music and then
moved to New York, where he
flourished in the music scene
there. He was soon snatched
up by Verve Records and has
recorded two albums for that
label, the second of which, 7th
Ave. Stroll, received five stars
for Downbeat Magazine.
Payton and Whitfield will
be performing the first night of
the festival, April 16. Tickets
are $12 for students and
faculty, $15 for the general
public.
