Mitch Albom creates his most unforgettable fictional character-Frankie Presto, the greatest guitarist to ever walk the earth-in this magical novel about the bands we join in life and the power of talent to change our lives. In his most stunning novel yet, the voice of Music narrates the tale of its most beloved disciple, young Frankie Presto, a war orphan raised by a blind music teacher in a small Spanish town. At nine years old, Frankie is sent to America in the bottom of a boat. His only possession is an old guitar and six precious strings. But Frankie's talent is touched by the gods, and his amazing journey weaves him through the musical landscape of the 20th century, from classical to jazz to rock and roll, with his stunning talent affecting numerous stars along the way, including Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Carole King, Wynton Marsalis and even KISS. Frankie becomes a pop star himself. He makes records. He is adored. But his gift is also his burden, as he realizes, through his music, he can actually affect people's futures-with one string turning blue whenever a life is altered.

Frankie Presto ist ein Waisenjunge, der von einem blinden Musiklehrer in einer spanischen Kleinstadt grossgezogen wird. Im Alter von neun Jahren schickt ihn sein Ziehvater in die USA, mit nur einer alten Gitarre und sechs wertvollen Saiten im Gepäck. Frankie fasst rasch Fuss in dem neuen Land und wie von Zauberhand wird er schnell geachteter und respektierter Teil der Musikszene des 20. Jahrhunderts, von Klassik über Jazz bis zu Rock’n’Roll. Er trifft und beeinflusst auf vielerlei Weise Hank Williams, Elvis, Carole King, Wynton Marsalis, KISS und viele weitere Grössen der Musikszene. Irgendwann wird er selbst zum Star, nimmt eigene Platten auf und wird verehrt. Doch seine Begabung wird zur Bürde, als er feststellt, dass er durch seine Musik das Leben der Menschen verändern kann. Denn jedes Mal, wenn eine Saite seiner Gitarre blau leuchtet, hat er Einfluss auf das Leben eines Menschen genommen. Auf dem Zenit seines Erfolgs verschwindet Frankie spurlos, seine Legende wächst. Erst Jahrzehnte später taucht er wieder auf, nur um kurz vor seinem eigenen Tod noch ein letztes Menschenleben zu verändern. Mitch Albom hat in diesem Forrest Gump-gleichen Ritt durch die Musikwelt einen wunderbar magischen Roman geschaffen über die Gruppen, deren Teil wir im Leben sind. Denn, so sagt der begeisterte Hobbymusiker Mitch Albom: „Wir alle sind im Leben Teil einer Band.

Little Labels Big Sound

Little Labels -- Big Sound celebrates 10 legendary record labels, their founders and the artists they developed, people who created original and enduring music on the tide of social change. From the 1920s through the 1960s, scores of small, independent record companies nurtured distinctly American music: jazz, blues, gospel, country, rhythm and blues, and rock 'n' roll. These companies, run on shoestring budgets, were on the fringe of mainstream culture. Louis Armstrong, Hank Williams, James Brown, Roy Orbison, and other musicians brought regional American styles to a world audience and won enduring fame for themselves. But often forgotten are the colorful owners of small record labels who first recorded these musicians and helped to popularize their sound before the dominant, more bureaucratic competitors knew what had happened. Rick Kennedy and Randy McNutt bring alive the glory days of the independent labels and their colorful founders, many of whom were interviewed for this book. Sometimes these men were visionaries. Ross Russell, a record-store owner in Los Angeles in the mid-1940s, risked his last dollar to create Dial Records because he was convinced that an obscure jazz saxophonist named Charlie Parker was creating a music revolution with his bebop jazz. Sam Phillips in Memphis had recorded white country and black R&B singers in the early 1950s, so he knew exactly what he was looking for when a shy, teenaged Elvis Presley walked into his storefront studio in 1954 and asked to make a record. Other owners had little appreciation for the music but were street-smart entrepreneurs. The white-owned 'race' labels of the 1920s, for example, recognized a black consumer market thatthe recording business had previously ignored. Operating out of such cities as Houston, Memphis, Cincinnati, and New Orleans, these savvy business people promoted regional sounds that were to reverberate around the world. But influencing the development of music wasn't what

Cajun Breakdown: The Emergence of an American-M...

In 1946, Harry Choates, a Cajun fiddle virtuoso, changed the course of American musical history when his recording of the so-called Cajun national anthem 'Jole Blon' reached number four on the national Billboard charts. Cajun music became part of the American consciousness for the first time thanks to the unprecedented success of this issue, as the French tune crossed cultural, ethnic, racial, and socio-economic boundaries. Country music stars Moon Mullican, Roy Acuff, Bob Wills, and Hank Snow rushed into the studio to record their own interpretations of the waltz-followed years later by Waylon Jennings and Bruce Springsteen. The cross-cultural musical legacy of this plaintive waltz also paved the way for Hank Williams Sr.'s Cajun-influenced hit 'Jamabalaya.' Choates' 'Jole Blon' represents the culmination of a centuries-old dialogue between the Cajun community and the rest of America. Joining into this dialogue is the most thoroughly researched and broadly conceived history of Cajun music yet published, Cajun Breakdown. Furthermore, the book examines the social and cultural roots of Cajun music's development through 1950 by raising broad questions about the ethnic experience in America and nature of indigenous American music. Since its inception, the Cajun community constantly refashioned influences from the American musical landscape despite the pressures of marginalization, denigration, and poverty. European and North American French songs, minstrel tunes, blues, jazz, hillbilly, Tin Pan Alley melodies, and western swing all became part of the Cajun musical equation. The idiom's synthetic nature suggests an extensive and intensive dialogue with popular culture, extinguishing the myth that Cajuns were an isolated folk group astray in the American South. Ryan Andre Brasseaux's work constitutes a bold and innovative exploration of a forgotten chapter in America's musical odyssey.

The Bluegrass Reader
39,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Like rock 'n' roll, bluegrass exploded out of a post-World War II atmosphere in which more Americans opened their ears to more different kinds of music than ever before. All around the country, musicians were searching for new sounds and approaches: country blues went fully electric in Chicago, bebop boiled over as jazz hit the hippest notes yet, and country music followed Hank Williams into newer, sexier, harder-hitting territory. The developments in bluegrass proved every bit as galvanic. In The Bluegrass Reader, Thomas Goldsmith joins his insights as a journalist with a lifetime of experience in bluegrass to capture the full story of this dynamic and beloved music. Inspired by the question 'What articles about bluegrass would you want to have with you on a desert island?' he assembled a delicious, fun-to-read collection that brings together a wide range of the very best in bluegrass writing. Goldsmith's judicious selections include a fascinating combination of older, more obscure, and previously unavailable writings with pieces that are classics in the history of writing about bluegrass: Alan Lomax in Esquire, Mayne Smith's groundbreaking dissertation, Ralph Rinzler's Sing Out piece on Bill Monroe, and Mike Seeger's Folkways liner notes. The Bluegrass Reader also features writers as disparate as Marty Stuart, David Gates, and Hunter Thompson writing for such magazines as The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, and Muleskinner News. In an age where musical trends flit by like models on a runway, bluegrass has endured changes while faithfully checking its advances against the formative years. Goldsmith follows its history through three roughly twenty-year periods: from 1939 to 1959, from1959 to 1979, and from 1979 to the present. Goldsmith's substantial introduction describes and traces the development of the music from its origins in Anglo-American folk tradition, overlaid with African American influences, to the breakout popularity of Ralph Stanley, Alison
