Chicago is a 2002 American musical film adapted from the satirical stage musical Chicago, the film explores the themes of 'celebrity' and 'scandal' in Jazz age Chicago. Directed and choreographed by Rob Marshall, and adapted for film by screenwriter Bill Condon, Chicago won six Academy Awards in 2003, including Best Picture. The film was the first musical film to win the Best Picture Oscar since Oliver! (1968). Chicago centers on Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart, two criminals-of-passion who find themselves on death row together in 1920s Chicago. Velma, a vaudevillian, and Roxie, a housewife with aspirations of having the same profession, fight for the fame that will keep them from the gallows. The film stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renée Zellweger, and Richard Gere, also featuring Queen Latifah, John C. Reilly, Christine Baranski, Lucy Liu, Taye Diggs, Colm Feore, and Mýa Harrison.

Das "Jazz Age" - zum Leben erweckt! Chicago und New York in den 20er Jahren, die Prohibition in vollem Gange und mittendrin eine Gruppe jazzbegeisterter Kids: Inspiriert von den schwarzen Ursprüngen der damals noch anstößigen Musikrichtung, finden sich junge Künstler aus weiten Teilen Amerikas zusammen und gründen gemeinsam die erste Generation weißer Jazz-Musiker. Eddie Condon, der aus einer musikalischen Familie stammte, kam als junger Banjospieler nach Chicago und widmete sein Leben dem Dixieland-Jazz. Sein schlagfertiger Witz ist ebenso legendär wie die Musik, die er spielte. Condons Biografie steckt voller abenteuerlicher Anekdoten der Jazzgeschichte und skizziert Porträts vieler, die heute zu den ganz Großen in diesem Genre zählen, unter anderem Bix Beiderbecke, Fats Waller, Jack Teagarden, Frank Teschemacher, Red McKenzie, Louis Armstrong und Bing Crosby.

Obwohl über das Phänomen Jazz viel geschrieben wurde und wird, blieb es von wissenschaftlicher Seite bislang beinahe unberücksichtigt. Mit einem kulturwissenschaftlichen Ansatz werden bisher kaum beachtete, aber eminent wertvolle Quellen analysiert - die Autobiografien von Nina Simone, Jelly Roll Morton, Eddie Condon, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis und Art Pepper. In ihren Essays gehen sechs junge Historiker dem Alltag dieser Jazzmusiker anhand ihrer Autobiografien nach und beleuchten mannigfaltige Aspekte des Jazz Life : den Mythos New Orleans , Rassismus, die Stadt Chicago, Identitätssuche oder Drogenprobleme. Ähnlich einer Oral History Studie mit alltagsgeschichtlicher Ausrichtung kommen dabei die Musiker selbst zu Wort. Ein Schwerpunkt liegt zudem beim methodischen Umgang mit Autobiografien von Jazzmusikern.

Chicago Jazz: the Second Line

When Derek Coller decided to pay tribute to his late friend - the author, biographer, discographer and researcher, Bert Whyatt - he looked for a common theme under which to group some of the articles they had written together over the years. He found it in Chicago where their research activities had gravitated towards the style of music created by the young white musicians from that city and its environs - particularly those who rallied around the figurehead of Eddie Condon - as they listened to and learned from the pioneer black stylists, many of them the greatest jazz players to emigrate from New Orleans, including King Oliver, Louis Armstrong, Johnny and Baby Dodds and Jimmy Noone. Two trips to the USA, made by the authors in 1979 and 1992, led to meetings and correspondence with some of the musicians in this compilation, and to learning about many others. There are connections between most of these articles, interviews and notes, with an over-lapping of jobs, leaders and clubs. Some of the stories are about pioneers: Elmer Schoebel, Jack Pettis and Frank Snyder, for example, were in the New Orleans Rhythm Kings in 1923. Trombonist George Brunis, chronicled here, was also a member of that band, though his long career - during which he played with Muggsy Spanier, as did Rod Cless and George Zack, in the Spanier Ragtime Band of 'Great Sixteen' fame - has been more widely documented. Floyd Bean and Tut Soper, here too, were also Spanier alumni. The articles originally appeared variously under a dual by-line, or by either Whyatt or Coller, but always with consultation and discussion prior to publication. Here they become a lively mix of the voices of the authors as well as the musicians and their families, building a story through biography, reviews and discography. The book is illustrated with evocative black and white photographs and images, and there is an Index of names and places to help the reader keep track of the musicians, composers, producers, promoters and writers who created this part of the history of jazz.

Dreamgirls: The Movie Musical
18,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

The official companion book featuring essays exploring the production of the film, Michael Bennett´s legendary Broadway musical, and the historic Motown revolution that inspired both. Illustrated with more than 200 color stills, concept paintings, costume designs, album art, and archival photographs. Twenty-five years after first bringing Broadway audiences to their feet, the Tony Award-winning musical sensation Dreamgirls comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx (Ray), Beyoncé Knowles (Austin Powers in Goldmember), Eddie Murphy (The Nutty Professor, Dr. Dolittle), Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon), Jennifer Hudson (American Idol), and Tony Award winner Anika Noni Rose (Broadway´s Caroline or Change). Set in the turbulent 1960s to mid-70s, Dreamgirls follows the rise of a trio of women-Deena (Beyoncé Knowles), Effie (Jennifer Hudson), and Lorrell (Anika Noni Rose)-who have formed a promising singing group called The Dreamettes. At a talent competition, they are discovered by an ambitious manager named Curtis Taylor Jr. (Jamie Foxx), who offers them the opportunity of a lifetime: to become the back-up singers for headliner James 'Thunder' Early (Eddie Murphy). Curtis gradually takes control of the girls´ look and sound, eventually giving them their own shot in the spotlight as The Dreams. That spotlight, however, begins to narrow in on Deena, finally pushing the less attractive Effie out altogether. Though The Dreams become a crossover phenomenon, they soon realize that the cost of fame and fortune may be higher than they ever imagined. Capturing the extraordinary visual style and power of the movie, the book features more than 200 color stills, drawings, concept paintings, costume designs, storyboards, album art, and archival photos about the cast, music, choreography, costumes, production, set design, and historical foundation for the period when the story occurs. The text, including extensive interviews with Bill Condon and others in the cast and crew, is written exclusively for the Newmarket book by distinguished writers Martin Gottfried (author of Broadway Musicals and All His Jazz: The Life and Death of Bob Fosse) and Cheo Hodari Coker (journalist and author of Unbelievable: The Life, Death, and Afterlife of the Notorious B.I.G.).
