Her name was RayLee. They called her the Acid Jazz Singer, her sultry voice mesmerizing human and demon alike. She´d been running for three years from her maker and only Travis McKenzie stood between her and the darkness that had become her life. Travis hunted the hit squads of demons and paid lip service to the sheriff of the city. The half-blood had gifts of the magic shifting kind - and something more. It made him a stone cold killer and the only thing that mattered in his life was safeguarding the woman he was falling in love with. The singer and the protector had a history. But that history changed when a southern bigot vamp turned Travis´ friend into a travesty - neither man, nor woman - but both. Travis fell hard for the trans known as RayLee. He was having a harder time dealing with his best friend, Ray. Then the game changes, and Travis and Ray have to rely on an assassin with a secret agenda and uncertain loyalties. Vladimira was the oldest of her kind, an enforcer - a gun for hire to the highest bidder. Vamp, human, demon. It didn´t matter. It was all about the job - until the stakes changed and she found a reason to care. When the demon comes to claim Ray, Travis must walk through the bowels of hell to save the only being on earth he cares about. The problem is - who is going to save Travis from himself? 1.

It’s an unseasonably hot April night in 1965. The social revolutions rocking America have mostly bypassed Burr, a tiny rural community in Western Oklahoma. Like much of the state, Burr remains as it’s always been: religious. Conservative. And 100 percent white. When an unknown young African American woman is found murdered on the railroad tracks outside town, most of Burr would rather look the other way. The town’s police chief, troubled local hero and ex-Marine Emmett Hardy, doesn’t have that luxury. A lover of books and jazz in the land of football and country and Western, Emmett is an outsider in a place he knows like the back of his hand. In his search for the killer, he’s forced to slice through layers of hate and hypocrisy to confront the ethical rot at the town’s core while being haunted by the vision of a life and love that might have been. 1.

Floyd Tillman - I Love You So Much It Hurts (6-CD)

6-CD Box (LP-Format) mit 80-seitigem gebundenen Buch, 175 Einzeltitel. Spielzeit ca. 458 Minuten. ´Wahrscheinlich bin ich der größte Floyd Tillman-Fan - weltweit.´ (Willie Nelson) Floyd Tillman war einer der überragenden Country-Music-Stilisten und gehörte zu den besten Songschreibern überhaupt. Sein Repertoire umfaßte Western Swing, Honky Tonk und Jazz – etliche seiner Kompositionen avancierten zu Pop-Klassikern. Obwohl in Oklahoma geboren, war er der Pionier texanischer Musik, indem er all das verkörperte, was die Musik dieses Staates so einmalig macht. Er war einer der ersten, der die elektrische Gitarre in die Country- Music integrierte, darüber hinaus sang wohl niemand sonst mit derartiger Eigentümlichkeit Country-Songs wie Floyd Tillman. Sein Einfluß auf andere, stilbildende Interpreten – wie etwa Willie Nelson – ist unschätzbar. ´Man konnte sofort erkennen, daß seine Songs kaum etwas mit der bis dahin üblichen Country-Music zu tun hatten´, erklärte Willie Nelson ´In seinem Gitarrespiel gab es diese Django-Reinhardt-Rhythmen, und er sang über Themen, die vor ihm noch niemand verarbeitet hatte.´ Floyd Tillman schrieb Country-Standards, darunter It Makes No Difference Now, They Took The Stars Out Of Heaven, Each Night At Nine, Slippin’ Around, I’ll Keep On Loving You und I Love You So Much It Hurts . Unterm Strich sind seine Kompositionen auf rund 50 Millionen Schallplatten vertreten und wurden von so unterschiedlichen Künstlern wie Gene Autry , Tex Ritter , Perry Como , Bing Crosby , den Supremes und Ray Charles aufgenommen. Außerdem gibt es in seinem musikalischen Nachlaß verkannte Hits und unspektakuläre Klassiker wie This Cold War With You, Driving Nails In My Coffin und I Gotta Have My Baby Back , die in seiner Interpretation zu Standards wurden. Diese Box wird eröffnet mit seinen ersten Einspielungen als Gitarrist und Gelegenheits-Sänger der Blue Ridge Playboys aus dem Jahr 1936 – und sie enthält seine sämtlichen Aufnahmen aus der Decca- (1939 – 1944) und der Columbia-Zeit (1946 – 1955). Ferner Einspielungen für kleinere Labels zwischen 1955 und 1957 sowie seine RCA-Victor-LP. Und: zwei Sessions für Liberty (1960 und 1961), seine Cimarron-Aufnahmen von 1962 sowie die hochgelobte Gilleys-LP (1981) – sie enthält Duette mit Ernest Tubb , Merle Haggard , Willie Nelson und Gilley selbst. Zu Floyd Tillmans Begleitmusikern zählen hier Texas-Legenden wie Moon Mullican , Bob Dunn , Johnny Gimble , Herbie Remington und Ted Daffan . Insgesamt werden 173 Aufnahmen präsentiert, und ein 80-seitiges, gebundenes Begleitbuch von Kevin Coffey rundet diese Veröffentlichung ab. Leider hat Floyd Tillman diese Verbeugung vor seinem Werk und Wirken nicht mehr miterleben können, er ist im August 2003 verstorben. Als er 1984 in die Country Music Hall of Fame aufgenommen wurde, brachte Willie Nelson es auf den Punkt: ´Ich danke ihm dafür, daß er mir Worte und Töne geschenkt hat, die meine eigenen Gefühle treffend ausdrückten – und wohl auch die von Millionen anderer Menschen.´

2-CD DigiPac (6-seitig) mit 110-seitigem Booklet, 57 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer ca. 150 Minuten. Dies ist ein Kapitel amerikanischer Musik, das noch nie erzählt worden ist. Harry Choates war ein Naturtalent – berühmt als Cajun-Fiedel-Spieler, der zugleich ein Meister an der Western-Swing-Fiedel und an der Jazz-Gitarre war – einem Django Reinhardt durchaus ebenbürtig. Musiker, die mit ihm zusammengespielt haben, loben außerdem sein Können am Klavier und an der Mandoline. 1946 nahm er den Cajun-Klassiker Jolie Blonde auf, als Jole Blon immer und ewig falsch bezeichnet. Der Titel wurde für ein kleines Label gemacht, geriet landesweit zum Erfolg – mit zahllosen Cover-Versionen und ähnlichen Folge-Titeln. Erstmalig wird die ganze Story hier enthüllt. Dabei ist Jole Blon nur ein kleiner Teil der Geschichte des Harry Choates . Er spielte die Rasthäuser von Louisiana und Texas rauf und runter, er soff, hurte rum, heiratete, ließ sich wieder scheiden. Seine Musik war eine Mischung aus Western Swing, Cajun und Jazz. Harry Choates ’ Platten erschienen in schlechter Aufnahmequalität auf minderwertigen Pressungen lokaler Labels – und große Teile seiner Songs sind überhaupt nicht veröffentlicht worden. Das ist ab sofort anders! Alle erhaltenen Gold-Star-Masters sind jetzt zusammengefaßt, hinzu kommen Harry Choates ’ früheste Aufnahmen (von 1940, mit Happy Fats und den Rayne-Bo Ramblers ) und die Titel, die er für Cajun Classics und das O. T.-Label 1947 eingespielt hat. Am singenden Klang seiner Fiedel wird die riesige Spielfreude dieses Mannes deutlich. Unterricht an diesem Instrument hatte er nie – er war ganz einfach eines der größten Naturtalente. Das 112-seitige Buch zu diesem Set enthält eine umfangreiche, neu recherchierte Harry Choates -Biografie von Andrew Brown und viele seltene, bislang unveröffentlichte Fotos und Abbildungen.

Last Night at the Blue Angel: A Novel , Hörbuch...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Set against the turbulence of 1960s Chicago - a city in transformation - and its legendary jazz scene, Last Night at the Blue Angel is a lush and immensely heartfelt mother-daughter tale about a talented but troubled singer´s relationship with her precocious 10-year-old daughter. It is the early 1960s, and Chicago is teeming with the tensions of the day - segregation, sexual experimentation, the Cold War and Vietnam - but it is also home to some of the country´s most influential jazz. Naomi Hill, a singer at the Blue Angel club, has been poised on the brink of stardom for nearly 10 years. But when her big break, the cover of Look magazine, finally arrives, it carries with it an enormous personal cost. Sensual and magnetic, Naomi is a fiercely ambitious yet self-destructive woman whose charms tend to hurt those around her, and no one knows this better than her daughter, Sophia. As the only child of a single mother growing up in an adult world, Sophia is wise beyond her years, a casualty of her mother´s desperate struggle for fame and adoration. Unsettled by her home life, she harbors a terrible fear that her world could disappear at any moment, and compulsively maintains a list of everyday objects she might need to reinvent should nuclear catastrophe strike. Her only constant is the colorful and unconventional family that surrounds her and her mother, particularly the photographer, Jim, who is Sophia´s best friend, surrogate father, and protector - but Jim is also deeply in love with Naomi. Weaving between the perspectives of Sophia and Naomi, Last Night at the Blue Angel is a poignant and unforgettable story about what happens when our passion for the life we want is at sharp odds with the life we have. Part stylish period piece, part heartbreaking family drama, it´s a novel rife with revelations, a vivid and propulsive listen - and the major debut of an extraordinary new writer. 1.

Both have missed the last train home. The musician has plans to rehearse with his jazz band all night, Mari is equally unconcerned and content to read, smoke and drink coffee until dawn. They realise they´ve been acquainted through Eri, Mari´s beautiful sister. The musician soon leaves with a promise to return before dawn. Shortly afterwards Mari will be interrupted a second time by a girl from the Alphaville Hotel; a Chinese prostitute has been hurt by a client, the girl has heard Mari speaks fluent Chinese and requests her help. Meanwhile Eri is at home and sleeps a deep, heavy sleep that is ´too perfect, too pure´ to be normal; pulse and respiration at the lowest required level. She has been in this soporfic state for two months; Eri has become the classic myth - a sleeping beauty. But tonight as the digital clock displays 00:00 a faint electrical crackle is perceptible, a hint of life flickers across the TV screen, though the television´s plug has been pulled. Murakami, acclaimed master of the surreal, returns with a stunning new novel, where the familiar can become unfamiliar after midnight, even to those that thrive in small hours. With After Dark we journey beyond the twilight. Strange nocturnal happenings, or a trick of the night?

Big Jay McNeely - Big Jay In 3-D (LP)
17,95 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

(King) 12 tracks - Re-issue of the original 1959 ´King´ LP album Big Jay McNeely, the greatest jazz sensa-tion to come out of California since Lionel Hampton, is known to his thousands of fol-lowers as the ´Go! Go! Go!´ boy. He plays a powerful lot of tenor saxophone. In fact, he has been known to devote 45 minutes to blowing hot and sweet in one number. It left him exhausted. A jazz devotee, Big Jay has studied under modern music greats. He has become the new jazz Pied Piper of teen-agers; has been called ´the greatest jazz artist since Louis Armstrong,´ and also, ´California´s hottest showman-saxophonist.´ As Big Jay himself tells it, ´I first came to Los Angeles on April 29, 1927. I did not come there to get into the movies. I just came there to be born.´ His was a musical family. Both parents and two brothers, Robert and Dillard, were musical. But Big Jay was 16 before he ´inherited´ his first musical instru-ment. While attending grade school, Big Jay thought it would be nice to take up the trom-bone. But Papa McNeely took inventory of the bankroll and decided the world would have to do without Big Jay´s trombone toot-ing. So Big Jay went on to Jefferson High School, majored in music (harmony and the-ory), but couldn´t get an instrument to play. Brother Robert had inherited an alto saxo-phone from a cousin. Since he now was em-ployed, he decided to go out and splurge on a tenor. That´s how Big Jay came to ´inherit´ the alto. Shortly thereafter, Uncle Sam sum-moned Robert, and his parting gift to Big Jay was his treasured tenor. That Big Jay made good use of the gift is musical history. He was a 16 year old high school student at the time. He and the tenor became the best of friends. Within six months he organized a 15 piece dance band, ´The Earls Of 44´, after Fatha Earl Hines. Withal, Big Jay lacked confidence in his musical prowess. He appeared in an amateur contest as a comedian—and was hooted off. Hurt, but mostly mad, Big Jay came back the next week. This time he had his sax along. He took second prize. The third week he won first prize with his torrid tenor. Family hardship actually started Big Jay off on his march to fame. His brothers were in the Army. His mother was a complete in-valid. Then his father took sick and couldn´t work. Big Jay had to find a job. He formed a five man combo and went before the Union board for special dispensation. It was grant-ed, and Big Jay went to work at the Club Savoy, but because he was under-age, he had to leave the club between sessions and remain outside as long as he was off the stand. He finished high school while playing such clubs as the Rendezvous, Zanzibar, and Last word. Next thing he knew he was a hit on wax. By 1949, at the age of 22, he was on the national popularity and best-selling lists. H is records have been favorites in pop-ular sales and have been spun in juke boxes and by disk jockeys from coast to coast. Recently, Big Jay´s ´Jazz Concerts´ at Shrine and Olympic Auditoriums in Los An-geles attracted thousands of Southern Cali-fornia teen-agers, who scream, shout, stomp and chant ´Go! Go! Go!´ in mounting ex-citement to his rhythmic rompings. His agon-ized blue notes left them limp, disheveled and white with exhaustion as the perspiring Big Jay sank to his knees, played from a jack-knife position and finally stretched out on his back, still torturing his tenor. Most of Big Jay´s fans are of high school and college age, but the older folks find his music contagious, too. At the Shrine jazz con-certs, one woman came night after night and sat there, just knitting placidly. ´Oh, I feel it, all right´, she said, ´I feel it. It´s all inside.´
