Jazz in AZ co-founder Patricia Myers, remembered as the 'quintessential voice' for Phoenix jazz, has died -

Monday, February 20, 2017

Akron, Ohio, with her then-husband, Jerry McElfresh, and their three children.“My dad got at a job at the Mesa Tribune,” says Suzanne McElfresh, Myers’ daughter. “And then he went to the Scottsdale Daily Progress, where he was managing editor for 23 years. [McElfresh later worked for The Republic, from 1988-2009]. They wanted to move out west to California or Arizona because they were tired of the winters.”Myers worked at the Mesa Tribune for a while in the ’60s before moving to the Scottsdale Daily Progress, where she worked as a food editor.“Or they probably called it the Women’s section then,” says McElfresh, “because it was in the ‘70s. I think she went there around 1970.”Kyle Lawson worked with Myers at the Scottsdale Daily Progress, his first job here in the Valley, heading up the paper’s weekly arts magazine. He sat one desk away from Myers, and recalled their time together in a touching tribute on her Facebook page as news spread of her death.“I soon learned that she knew more about jazz than just about anyone," Lawson wrote. "What I knew about jazz would have filled two paragraphs, three at most. Pat set about teaching me the rhyme, the rhythm and the reason. She took me to the big clubs, the hole-in-the-walls and frequently to someone's garage or living room where we listened to jams that left me speechless. That didn't last long. After each visit, she ruthlessly quizzed me, rejecting the puff-speak until she was sure I understood the truth of what I'd heard. Along the way, she taught me how to write about entertainers, about how to write entertainingly, but how to listen for and report the nuances. I can hear her now, saying, ‘Open up to the music. It's not just what you hear. It's what you feel.’”Nurturing the musicShe also instilled a love of music in McElfresh, who went on to play piano in her own band before launching a career in music journalism.“We used to go hear jazz together all the time, from the time I was 13, 14,” her daughter recalls. “I saw Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie, everybody. And we’d meet them because she was a journalist. She was like, ‘This is my daughter. She plays jazz piano.’”The musicians I spoke to said as far as they knew, Myers never learned to play an instrument, but she actually did at one time play guitar.“A little bit,” says McElfresh. “And not in years. My dad had a barbershop quartet and is a Dixieland musician. When I was a kid, my parents would play guitar and ukulele. And they would play the big band station, or when there became a jazz s

Arizona leaders praise legacy of Phoenix philanthropist Gary Herberger, who has died at 79 -

Monday, March 13, 2017

They donated a grand piano to the school, so a lot of students would play on that.”In addition to his wife, Herberger is survived by his brother, Judd Herberger.The Herberger family moved to Scottsdale in 1949 from the Midwest, where Bob Herberger owned a department store chain based in Minnesota. In Arizona he switched to real estate, and his wife became a major patron of arts organizations such as the Phoenix Symphony and the Phoenix Art Museum. The couple made large gifts to Arizona State University, particularly to the music school, and helped spark the revitalization of downtown Phoenix with the construction of the Herberger Theater Center in the late 1980s.Kax, as she was known, passed her passion for the arts along to her two sons.“It just came in naturally. It’s sort of in our DNA,” Judd Herberger said.Judd describes his brother as curious and bright.“He loved astronomy. He had some patents in computers. He was a painter, and he loved the performing arts and the visual arts and all forms of cultural activity,” he said.Gary Herberger graduated from the Judson School in Scottsdale and went on to study at Pomona College in California and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as well as with the legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright.He worked for an Arizona architecture firm for about 15 years, Judd Herberger said, before switching to real-estate development as the head of Herberger Enterprises.“But in his office he had an architectural drafting table that always had something on it that he was working on, be it his own homes that he designed or projects that he designed,” he said.Among his many gifts to ASU, Gary Herberger contributed to the Design School in efforts to study sustainable urban planning. He also helped fund a merger with the arts college to create the current Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts.Steven J. Tepper, dean of the institute since 2014, said one of the first things he did after he was offered the job was meet with Gary and Jeanne Herberger.“They were an amazing font of knowledge and inspiration for me from day one,” he said. “That visit with them still remains one of the highlights for me, because being in a space that was 360-degree designed by the person who l
