Jeff Davis Swaine digs up evidence for a Raleigh, North Carolina, trial law firm. When a client comes home to find his McMansion burglarized - and his new wife´s dog dead in the kitchen - the man suspects his ex-wife. But this is someone far more dangerous. From a stolen minivan, washed-up jazz bassist Leonard Noblac is performing his ´´perfect jazz album of felonies´´ to punish the zeros in the soulless suburb of Rocky Falls. He composes a series of musical compositions and meticulously plans out symbolic crimes to go along with each one, believing the notoriety from his crimes will finally make him famous for his music. Used to working from the shadow at the back of the stage, and bitter from his failure to make it in the New York jazz world and his move to the suburbs, Leonard puts down a throbbing beat of crime and destruction. As Leonard’s crimes give voice to his rage, he finds himself able to improvise like never before, with terrifying results. Jeff must find Leonard and save the teenager and newborn he has kidnapped before the musician can write them into the fiery crescendo of Leonard’s album. Author Bryan Gilmer teaches news writing at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A former newspaper reporter and radio newsreader, he is also the author of the mystery Kill the Story. 1.

Ascolta e rivivi la storia della mitica cantante americana. Un ritratto a tutto tondo di una delle grandi voci della musica! Da Valentina Mattarozzi, cantautrice bolognese da sempre appassionata di musica, danza, disegno e recitazione. Valentina ha all´attivo album e concerti, e naviga ogni giorno nelle acque profonde dello swing, del jazz, del blues e anche del pop. Billie Holiday è stata una delle cantanti più importanti e influenti del Novecento. Tutti i suoi concerti facevano il sold-out, collaborava con i più grandi musicisti dell´epoca, come Louis Armstrong, ed è entrata nel firmamento delle voci femminili, non solo jazz. Questa, però, è solo la luminosa cornice di una vita di sacrifici, problemi con la legge, scelte infelici, mariti violenti e dipendenze malsane. Fin da piccola, Billie dovette lottare con tutte le forze contro il mondo esterno e le difficoltà della vita: la violenza, la prostituzione, le botte dai mariti, la caduta nel vortice della droga... eppure Lady Day, com´era soprannominata nell´ambiente, riuscì sempre a rialzarsi e con tenacia e determinazione inseguì la sua vera e unica passione, la musica. Universalmente riconosciuta come una voce di primissimo livello, Billie Holiday non frequentò mai scuole o accademie, cantava con il cuore. Le sue canzoni si rivolgevano al popolo oppresso dei neri, in un paese, gli Stati Uniti, che a fatica cercava di uscire da un abisso di razzismo che ancora nel nuovo millennio minaccia il suo equilibrio sociale. Il suo pezzo più famoso, ´´Strange Fruit´´, è un inno alla sofferenza dei neri, un´ode alla rivalsa delle minoranze e un invito al cambiamento. Un autentico capolavoro che fa riflettere ancora oggi. ´´Nessun altro come Billie Holiday ha mai cantato così bene due parole: fame e amore.´´ (l´autrice) 1. Italian.

Ascolta e rivivi la storia del mitico cantante e trombettista americano. Un ritratto a tutto tondo di una delle grandi voci della musica! Da Valentina Mattarozzi, cantautrice bolognese da sempre appassionata di musica, danza, disegno e recitazione.Valentina ha all´attivo album e concerti, e naviga ogni giorno nelle acque profonde dello swing, del jazz, del blues e anche del pop. Louis Armstrong e le note inconfondibili della sua tromba sono entrati nella storia della musica del Novecento. Universalmente riconosciuto come uno dei padri del genere musicale del jazz, Armstrong ebbe una vita di alti e bassi, da cui uscì vittorioso, e una carriera costellata di avventure: era un ribelle nella musica, amava rompere gli schemi accademici, stupire, far sorridere e far piangere allo stesso tempo. Un uomo straordinario, un talento raro, una perla tra gli artisti di tutte le epoche, una pietra miliare lungo la via ancora così lunga del jazz. 1. Italian.

This Is Our Music: Free Jazz, the Sixties, and ...
9,95 € *

This Is Our Music, declared saxophonist Ornette Coleman´s 1960 album title. But whose music was it? At various times during the 1950s and 1960s, musicians, critics, fans, politicians, and entrepreneurs claimed jazz as a national art form, an Afrocentric race music, an extension of modernist innovation in other genres, a music of mass consciousness, and the preserve of a cultural elite. This original and provocative book explores who makes decisions about the value of a cultural form and on what basis, taking as its example the impact of 1960s free improvisation on the changing status of jazz. By examining the production, presentation, and reception of experimental music by Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, John Coltrane, and others, Iain Anderson traces the strange, unexpected, and at times deeply ironic intersections between free jazz, avant-garde artistic movements, Sixties politics, and patronage networks. Anderson emphasizes free improvisation´s enormous impact on jazz music´s institutional standing, despite ongoing resistance from some of its biggest beneficiaries. He concludes that attempts by African American artists and intellectuals to define a place for themselves in American life, structural changes in the music industry, and the rise of nonprofit sponsorship portended a significant transformation of established cultural standards. At the same time, free improvisation´s growing prestige depended in part upon traditional highbrow criteria: increasingly esoteric styles, changing venues and audience behavior, European sanction, withdrawal from the marketplace, and the professionalization of criticism. Thus jazz music´s performers and supporters - and potentially those in other arts - have both challenged and accommodated themselves to an ongoing process of cultural stratification. The book is published by University of Pennsylvania Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Steven Forrest. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/002752/bk_acx0_002752_sample.mp3.

9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Sophisticated Giant presents the life and legacy of tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon (1923-1990), one of the major innovators of modern jazz. In a context of biography, history, and memoir, Maxine Gordon has completed the book that her late husband began, weaving his ´´solo” turns with her voice and a chorus of voices from past and present. Reading like a jazz composition, the blend of research, anecdote, and a selection of Dexter’s personal letters reflects his colorful life and legendary times. It is clear why the celebrated trumpet genius Dizzy Gillespie said to Dexter, ´´Man, you ought to leave your karma to science.” Dexter Gordon the icon is the Dexter beloved and celebrated on albums, on film, and in jazz lore - even in a street named for him in Copenhagen. But this image of the cool jazzman fails to come to terms with the multidimensional man full of humor and wisdom, a figure who struggled to reconcile being both a creative outsider who broke the rules and a comforting insider who was a son, father, husband, and world citizen. This essential book is an attempt to fill in the gaps created by our misperceptions as well as the gaps left by Dexter himself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Morton, Terria Joseph, Prentice Onayemi. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/050800/bk_adbl_050800_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Ascolta e rivivi la storia della mitica cantante americana. Un ritratto a tutto tondo di una delle grandi voci della musica. Da Valentina Mattarozzi, cantautrice bolognese da sempre appassionata di musica, danza, disegno e recitazione. Valentina ha all´attivo album e concerti, e naviga ogni giorno nelle acque profonde dello swing, del jazz, del blues e anche del pop. Quello di Ella Fitzgerald è un nome che compare in ogni libro di storia della musica e chiunque può dire aver ascoltato, almeno una volta, la sua bellissima voce o di possedere un suo disco da qualche parte. In questo breve viaggio nella vita e nella carriera della regina dello swing tra gli anni quaranta e sessanta, l´autrice ci racconta i motivi per cui Ella era grande: le sofferenze e i sacrifici che dovette sopportare per arrivare al successo, l´incredibile talento che dimostrò fin da subito, la tenacia con cui lottò per conquistarsi un posto tra i bianchi che dominavano la scena discografica dell´epoca, i rapporti con i colleghi come Chick Webb, Louis Armstrong o Frank Sinatra, i matrimoni sfortu-nati e l´amore per la vita. Un viaggio a tutto tondo nel mito di Ella Fitzgerald. Ella si destreggiò con bravura in moltissimi generi, ´´lo faceva con grande slancio e candore. Per questo è tutt´ora un´icona e cantante jazz. La più famosa di tutti i tempi.´´ ´´A differenza di altre grandi cantanti jazz, Ella Fitzgerald non crebbe avviluppata dalla musica nera. È per questo motivo che troviamo nel suo fraseggio modalità più vicino al cantare dei bianchi e una nota più fredda dal punto di vista emotivo rispetto alle sopracitate artiste. Ma si contraddistinse per la ritmicità della sua voce, per la freschezza della sua timbrica, per l´impeccabilità della sua dizione e intonazione, per l´intelligenza dimostrata utilizzando i fraseggi dei musicisti che aveva ascoltato fino ad allora per improvvisare lei stessa con la voce´´ (L´autrice).
