Carry My Heart

"Eine Stimme wie Milch und Honig" schwärmt die JAZZ TIMES über Sängerin Indra Rios-Moore, die vor drei Jahren mit ihrem Debütalbum "Heartland", einer warmen Jazzstimme und ebenso klugen wie seelenvollen Interpretationen ungewöhnlicher Songs aufhorchen ließ. Fans von Sängerinnen wie Lizz Wright oder Malia spitzten die Ohren und ließen sich von der Newcomerin überzeugen. "Carry My Heart" heißt nun das Nachfolgealbum der Amerikanerin auf dem Verve-Label. Wie schon auf dem Vorgänger fällt zuallererst Rios-Moores Stimme auf, die auf Schönheit setzt ohne in Kitsch abzudriften. Überhaupt hat die Sängerin mehr als nur Wohlklang zu bieten: Köpfchen zum Beispiel, denn mit ihrer cleveren Songauswahl von Curtis Mayfield über die Isley Brothers und Steely Dan bis hin zu George Gershwin und Duke Ellington hat sie auch Titel ausgewählt, mit denen sie die politischen und sozialen Realitäten in ihrem Land kommentiert. Ein Album für alle Sinne also.

Brand-new stories by: Daniel Woodrell, Matthew Eck, Catherine Browder, Nancy Pickard, John Lutz, J. Malcolm Garcia, Kevin Prufer, Linda Rodriguez, Nadia Pflaum, Phong Nguyen, Andres Rodriguez, and others. Kansas City: where East and West collide, where naked ambition meets broken dreams, where blues and the night go together like rye whiskey, vermouth, and bitters. Yes, Kansas City is a surprising place of grit, gore, and betrayal, at least in the imaginations of our diverse lineup of contributors. Kansas City Noir, another in Akashic's series of geographically specific anthologies, peels back the aura of civility and captures the raw truths of the human condition as lived in this heartland, third-coast city. Among the collection's contributors are Daniel Woodrell, author of the modern classic Winter's Bone and the recent, much lauded story collection, The Outlaw Album; Matthew Eck, author of the noted war novel The Farther Shore; veteran short-fiction writer Catherine Browder; Edgar Award-winning mystery novelists Nancy Pickard and John Lutz; and J. Malcolm Garcia, whose reporting from the war in Afghanistan informs a disturbing tale of restless angst and dislocation. Kansas City Noir takes a compelling tour of the streets of a vibrant American city, complete with accents of jazz, barbecue, and the deeply rooted blues. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lauren Fortgang, Kevin T. Collins, John McLain, Suzanne Toren, Scott Aiello, R.C. Bray, Johnny Heller. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/014642/bk_adbl_014642_sample.mp3.

3000 Kilometer. Ein großer Strom. Unterwegs in einem Liegerad an den Ufern des Mississippi.Der Mississippi ist der amerikanischste aller Flüsse. Auf dem Ol' Man River wurden das Pokern und das Wasserskifahren erfunden. An seinen Ufern entstanden Blues, Jazz und Rock'n'Roll. Jahrzehntelang bildete der Mississippi die natürliche Grenze zum "Wilden Westen". Und im Bürgerkrieg behielt die Oberhand, wer den Fluss kontrollierte.Einen Monat lang folgt Thomas Bauer dem großen Fluss mit seinem Velomobil - einem Liegerad - von der Quelle bis nach New Orleans. Auf seinem Road Trip durch zehn US-Staaten trifft er Indianer und Gelegenheitsarbeiter, Barschönheiten und Fernfahrer - und alle wählen sie Donald Trump. Der Mittlere Westen der USA ist derb und rau, lärmend, völlig durchgeknallt und doch liebenswert. Man nimmt schon zum Frühstück 2000 Kalorien zu sich, besucht Waffenmessen und schimpft auf die "Bonzen aus Washington". Im Land der dicken Autos ist der Autor mit seinem zerbrechlichenGefährt unterwegs. Wo immer er anhält, eilen die Leute herbei. Sie wollen wissen, was ein Deutscher mit einem solchen "Dings" in ihrem Land vorhat, und erzählen ihm ihre Geschichten.In New Orleans wird Thomas Bauer klar: "Wer den Flüssen zuhört, kann alles erfahren und alles lernen." Begleiten Sie ihn auf einer abenteuerlichen Fahrt mitten durch das amerikanische Heartland.

Living Dangerously
37,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Living Dangerously begins by telling the story of a young woman and an account of her formative years growing up in a small town in a close knit family and learning about the Black Country not far away. This was the heartland of heavy industry in South Staffordshire. With the Second World War threatening, at the tender age of 18, Betty Farley volunteered for service in the Women's Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) where her adventures truly begin, and serves her country until the war's conclusion in 1939. Her story takes the reader on a tour of the British Isles, invariably by steam engine, from Birmingham and on to her numerous postings, London, Oxford, Cornwall, South Wales and Oban, situated on the west coast of Scotland. The backdrop to this book is the war itself, as it was waged by fighter aircraft, frequent bombing raids, V-1 rockets, the London Blitz, the 'blackout', set against the metropolitan night-life, partying at The Savoy, the Queensbury Club in Piccadilly, dancing to the sound of the Glenn Miller Band, the jitterbug and the latest music import, jazz! For many women, as well as men, these were also times of both exhilaration and the chance of tasting independence for the first time. Naturally, this led to long-lasting friendships and romantic attachments, especially with British and American forces at a time when the country was awash with US troops, either stationed here or passing through on the way to the European theatre. Betty Farley carries the reader through that time of the run-up to D-Day and the Normandy landings, with vivid descriptions of the preparations to invade Europe. Having fallen in love, the struggle to make a life changing decision about her marriage to an American and leaving her family is a hard choice, and once made there is no looking back. The future holds many surprises, dramas and adventures, but that's another story. After living in Massachusetts and Michigan she now lives and writes in Key Biscayne, Florida.

Encyclopedia of the Great Plains
91,90 CHF *

The Great Plains is a vast expanse of grasslands stretching from the Rocky Mountains to the Missouri River and from the Rio Grande to the coniferous forests of Canada--an area more than eighteen hundred miles from north to south and more than five hundred miles from east to west. The Great Plains region includes all or parts of Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. The region, once labeled 'the Great American Desert,' is now more often called the 'heartland,' or, sometimes, 'the breadbasket of the world.' Its immense distances, flowing grasslands, sparse population, enveloping horizons, and dominating sky convey a sense of expansiveness, even emptiness or loneliness, a reaction to too much space and one's own meager presence in it. The Plains region is the home of the Dust Bowl, the massacre at Wounded Knee, the North-West Rebellion, the Tulsa race riot, the Lincoln County War, the purported Roswell alien landing, and the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. From it have emerged furs, cattle, corn, wheat, oil, gas, and coal as well as jazz, literature, and political reform. It has been inhabited for more than twelve thousand years, since Paleo-Indians hunted mammoth and bison. More recent emigrants came from eastern North America, Europe, Latin American, and Asia, resulting in a complex and distinctive ethnic mosaic. With 1,316 entries contributed by more than one thousand scholars, this ground-breaking reference work captures what is vital and interesting about the Great Plains--from its temperamental climate to its images and icons, its historical character, its folklore, and its politics.Thoroughly illustrated, annotated, and indexed, this remarkable compendium of information and analysis will prove the definitive and indispensable resource on the Great Plains from many years to come. The Encyclopedia of the Great Plains is a cooperative project of the Center fo

Pioneers of Jazz

Thanks to the pioneering tours of the Creole Band, jazz began to be heard nationwide on the vaudeville stages of America from 1914 to 1918. This seven-piece band toured the country, exporting for the first time the authentic jazz strains that had developed in New Orleans at the start of the 20th century. The band's vaudeville routines were deeply rooted in the minstrel shows and plantation cliches of American show business in the late 19th century, but its instrumental music was central to its performance and distinctive and entrancing to audiences and reviewers. Pioneers of Jazz reveals at long last the link between New Orleans music and the jazz phenomenon that swept America in the 1920s. While they were the first important band from New Orleans to attain national exposure, The Creole Band has not heretofore been recognized for its unique importance. But in his monumental, careful research, jazz scholar Lawrence Gushee firmly establishes the group's central role in jazz history. Gushee traces the troupe's activities and quotes the reaction of critics and audiences to their first encounters with this new musical phenomenon. While audiences often expected (and got) a kind of minstrel show, the group transcended expectations, taking pride in their music and facing down the theatrical establishment with courage. Although they played the West Coast and Canada, most of their touring centered in the heartland. Most towns of any size in Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana heard them, often repeatedly, and virtually all of their appearances were received with wild enthusiasm. After four years of nearly incessant traveling, members of the band founded or joined groups in Chicago's South Side cabaret scene, igniting the craze for hot New Orleans music for which the Windy City was renowned in the early 1920s. The best-known musicians in the group--cornetist Freddie Keppard, clarinetist Jimmy Noone and string bassist Bill Johnson--would play a significant role in jazz, becoming famous for recordings in the 1920s. Gushee effectively brings to life each member of the band and discusses their individual contributions, while analyzing the music with precision, skillful and exacting documentation. Including many never before published photos and interviews, the book also provides an invaluable and colorful look at show business, especially vaudeville, in the 1910s. While some of the first jazz historians were aware of the band's importance, attempts to locate and interview surviving members (three died before 1935) were sporadic and did little or nothing to correct the mostly erroneous accounts of the band's career. The jazz world has long known about Gushee's original work on this previously neglected subject, and the book represents an important event in jazz scholarship. Pioneers of Jazz brilliantly places this group's unique importance into a broad cultural and historical context, and provides the crucial link between jazz's origins in New Orleans and the beginning of its dissemination across the country.
