Jazz Cartoons60 SeitenBookOrdernummer 19300What´s ´´Dad´s Jazz”? Portraits, songs, facts and, naturally, also stereotypes mainly borrowed from the field of rather traditional jazz, in other words from Dad´s days, made up the source Rupert Hörbst drew his inspiration from for his fifth cartoon book. The author´s ´´abnormal” approach – which he already made use of in his previous publications - often serves as a suitable means to an end and, in this way, it may also open up ´´abnormal” perspectives. Provided that you are endowed with a small portion of (self-)irony. This should by no means be interpreted as some sort of defamation; after all Rupert Hörbst loves jazz - and admires musicians - too much to resort to such measures. ´´ Jazz is the joy of playing music…”, that´s what Leonard Bernstein once said. ´´Dad´s Jazz” stands for the author´s joy of playing around and is meant to be the beholder´s joy of contemplating – and maybe even smiling – but by no means defamation, after all Rupert Hörbst loves ... . – That´s ´´Dad´s Jazz”!
More than 50 years ago, John Coltrane drew the 12 musical notes in a circle and connected them with straight lines, forming a five-pointed star. Inspired by Einstein, Coltrane had put physics and geometry at the core of his music. Physicist and jazz musician Stephon Alexander returns the favor, using jazz to answer physics´ most vexing questions about the past and future of the universe. Following the great minds that first drew the links between music and physics - a list including Pythagoras, Kepler, Newton, Einstein, and Rakim - The Jazz of Physics revisits the ancient realm where music, physics, and the cosmos were one. This cosmological journey accompanies Alexander´s own tale of struggling to reconcile his passion for music and physics, from taking music lessons as a boy in the Bronx to studying theoretical physics at Imperial College, London´s inner sanctum of string theory. Playing the saxophone and improvising with equations, Alexander uncovered the connection between the fundamental waves that make up sound and the fundamental waves that make up everything else. As he reveals, the ancient poetic idea of the ´´music of the spheres´´, taken seriously, clarifies confounding issues in physics. Whether you are more familiar with Brian Greene or Brian Eno, John Coltrane or John Wheeler, the Five Percent Nation or why the universe is less than 5 percent visible, there is a new discovery every minute. Covering the entire history of the universe from its birth to its fate, its structure on the smallest and largest scales, The Jazz of Physics will fascinate and inspire anyone interested in the mysteries of our universe, music, and life itself. 1.

The dazzling, provocative work of Jean-Michel Basquiat would come to define the vibrant New York art scene of the late ´70s and early ´80s. Punk, jazz, graffiti, hip-hop: his work drew heavily on the cultural trappings of Lower Manhattan, to which he fled (from Brooklyn) at the age of 15.
