zzgl. 5,95 € Versand

2016 wurde Anke Helfrich für ihr viertes Album ?Dedication? mit einem ECHO JAZZ als ?Pianistin & Keyboarderin national? ausgezeichnet. Eingespielt mit hochkarätiger Besetzung, ist ihr ein sehr persönliches und eindringliches Werk gelungen, das von Jury und Presse gepriesen wurde. ?Dedication? kann mit Hingabe, Engagement und Widmung übersetzt werden, und so ist auch jedes Stück einer inspirierenden Person gewidmet. Das Programm enthält unter anderem eine Vertonung von Dr. Martin Luther King?s berühmter Rede ?I have a dream?, die Verarbeitung eines Gedichts für Nelson Mandela in dem Stück Invictus, eine Ode an die Familie, an langjährige Freunde, an Thelonious Monk und an das Leben selbst. Eine sehr spannende, abwechslungsreiche und grandiose Einspielung.Anke Helfrich erklärt im Begleittext ihrer CD: ?Das Leben als Jazzmusiker und insbesondere der Jazz als Ausdrucksform fordert absolute Hingabe und ist eine ständige Herausforderung. Er bietet die Möglichkeit im Zusammenspiel der Musiker, in der Improvisation und den Kompositionen, Emotion in Musik umzuwandeln. Ich habe mich lange mit dem Leben und der Arbeit von Martin Luther King, Jr. beschäftigt. Ähnlich wie bei Nelson Mandela inspiriert mich, wie er mit Mut und Hingabe für Gleichberechtigung, für Verbesserung der Lebensumstände und neue Gesetze gekämpft hat. Für viele Jazzmusiker ist er eine Ikone und seine Verbundenheit zum Blues und Jazz ist dokumentiert in seinem Vorwort ?On the Importance of Jazz? zum Programm des ersten Berliner Jazz Festivals 1964. Dort beschreibt er, wie wichtig diese Musik für das American Peace Movement war. Ich habe eine seiner berühmtesten Reden musikalisch vertont, Tonhöhe und Duktus auf das Piano transponiert, wodurch seine Rede wie ein gesungener Gospel klingt.?In Kassel wird Anke Helfrich die Musik dieses Albums aber auch brandneue Eigenkompositionen vorstellen. Zusammen mit ihren kongenialen musikalischen Triopartnern ? dem Bassisten Dietmar Fuhr und dem Schlagzeuger Jens Düppe ? hat sie in den letzten Jahren ausgiebige und erfolgreiche Tourneen in Deutschland, Italien und Russland absolviert.Anke Helfrich (p), Dietmar Fuhr (b), Jens Düppe (dr)

A fast, gritty, durable player who could read a basketball floor as well as anyone who ever played the game, John Stockton left the NBA after 19 seasons with the Utah Jazz, holding a massive assist record, including the career mark (15,806). He also twice led the league in steals - with a career total of 3,265 - and retired as the NBA's all-time leader. And during Stockton's career, the Jazz never missed the playoffs. Coach Frank Layden said, "Nobody thought that he was going to be this good. Nobody. But the thing was, nobody measured his heart." John's autobiography, Assisted, pulls back the curtain on his very personal life to show fans a thoughtful recounting of the people, places, and events that have connected with John along his path of extraordinary success. This book clearly illustrates the importance of his family, his faith, and his unparalleled competitive spirit. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Stockton.

Emmett Miller: An Obscure Minstrel Yodeler Who ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One of the strangest, most obscure, and intriguing stories from the last century of popular music is that of Emmett Miller. He helped define the popular music of the last 75 years, and for the most part, today he is all but forgotten. Emmett Miller left many legacies which influenced the American musical landscape for generations. Certainly his singing style - the odd nasal pitch tone, along with the breaking of lines and bars in a song to a high yodel-like yelp - has been imitated by scores of singers since Miller first waxed his signature style to record in 1924. Jimmie Rodgers, Gene Autry, Lefty Fritzell, the Rhythm Wreckers, Bob Wills, Woody Guthrie, Howlin' Wolf, and Bob Dylan all have been influenced by Miller's one-of-a-kind vocal abilities. Of equal importance was Miller's visionary fusion of blues and jazz, country and swing, black and white, comedy and crooning.Whether he knew what he was doing at the time or not, Miller almost single-handedly tore down the strict boundaries of musical ideas of the era. Here was a young, white, Christian man from the south, singing hot-jazz and black music in the north. Performing as a blackface with some of the most influential jazz musicians of all time (Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey, Gene Krupa, Eddie Lang, Jack Teagarden, and more). He created an entirely new style of country: pop. Country which swung. Country that was equally parts white and black, urban and rural. Country that was slurred through whiskey, girls, the road, and came out as the earliest forms of beatnik jive. Listening to Miller's music today, one can hear the startling sound of a man perfectly in sync with the present: he's influenced by the past, while he anticipated what was coming just around the bend. For fans of music history, musicology, americana, country music, hillbilly, minstrelsy and vaudeville. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Norton.

Good People: The Only Leadership Decision That ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Good people are your organization's most critical asset. But what does it really mean to be good? Leaders love to say that any company is only as good as its people but tend to evaluate candidates and employees more by their measurable accomplishments than by their "softer" qualities, like integrity, compassion, and other values. Best-selling author Anthony Tjan is leading a movement to change the way we think about goodness so that we can become better judges of people and create more goodness in ourselves, in others, and in our organizations. Tjan argues that while competence is necessary, real goodness must also encompass values; a fantastic résumé can never compensate for mediocre character. In Good People, he provides a clear language to discuss goodness, redefining it as a lifelong, proactive commitment that, like any skill, can be exercised, honed, and taught. When leaders prioritize goodness in themselves and in others, they can create lasting cultures and tremendous value. Drawing from his own experiences as an entrepreneur and venture capitalist, Tjan also taps in to the wisdom of his relationships and interviews with extraordinary innovators, executives, artists, academics, teachers, and role models from all disciplines and walks of life. The cases and profiles shared include: Harvard Business School dean Nitin Nohria, who has called for balancing leadership of competency with leadership of character; Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who has never forgotten her roots and shows profound kindness to her staff and clerks; Hollywood talent manager Shep Gordon, who has counseled his clients on the importance of generosity and gratitude; legendary venture capitalist Henry McCance, whose success proves that humbly ceding the spotlight to others makes room for their greatness; and master jazz musician Clark Terry, who devotedly mentored the young, blind pianist Justin Kauflin. Packe 1.
