Davide e Golia. Perché i piccoli sono più forti dei grandi di Malcolm Gladwell
Mondadori| 2014 | ISBN: 8804639873 | 275 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Tremila anni fa nella valle di Elah ha avuto luogo uno dei duelli più famosi della storia: il giovane pastore Davide, con una semplice fionda e qualche ciottolo, affronta e sconfigge il potente guerriero filisteo Golia. Muovendo dal racconto biblico, da sempre considerato la metafora della vittoria improbabile, Malcolm Gladwell ci accompagna in un viaggio attraverso confronti ritenuti impossibili, osservando che cosa accade quando una persona normale fronteggia un "gigante", vale a dire una situazione sfavorevole, una disabilità svantaggiosa o una sfida proibitiva. E l'affronta ad armi impari. Che cosa è disposta a mettere in gioco? Quali strategie intende adottare? Deve seguire le regole o l'istinto? Perseverare o rinunciare?

Sfumato, the visual arts term, is mutated from the Italian words for smoke and blended. The procedure overlays translucent layers of color to create perceptions of depth, volume and form -- blending these attributes so subtly that there’s no perceptible transition between one and another.

Following up their excellent debut and a season of intense touring, David Lindley and his crack band (now named El Rayo-X) recorded their second Elektra album. It turns out that they actually bettered the near perfection of the first. Opening with an excellent version of Etta James classic "Something's Got a Hold on Me," this track proves how tight the band had became. Lindley's slide guitar work is impressive as always. As an added bonus, the band's vocal harmonies are extremely tight and a welcome addition.

David Byrne, like fellow New York transplant David Bowie, has reached a well-deserved apex in his career. After eight post-Talking Heads solo outings, the eccentric composer, songwriter, artist, and world music entrepreneur has transcended the inconsistencies of his previous efforts and created a genuinely moving and wickedly fun record. Like Bowie's Heathen and Reality, Grown Backwards is a mature work by an icon who has come to terms with his past, present, and future, and there's a joy in the simple act of creativity here that gives even the heaviest of subject matter an effervescent charm…

Rossini - Ermione (David Parry) [2010]  Music

During the years from 1815 to 1822 when his career centered on Naples, Rossini composed a sequence of works for the Teatro San Carlo, which at that time boasted an outstanding orchestra and a company of resident singers that was the leading ensemble available anywhere. A string of masterpieces resulted, including Ermione - which is without doubt one of the composer's greatest operas, despite it being perhaps the least immediately successful. Ermione was received with incomprehension at its sole performance in 1819 and was never revived in Rossini's lifetime. Since its first stage revival in Pesaro in 1987, Ermione has been recognized as a lost masterpiece. Set in the aftermath of the Trojan War, the opera's novelties begin with an overture interrupted by a choral lament of Trojan prisoners. Tension and staggering originality are maintained right to the very end.

David Bowie is not a man one would expect to revel in the accidental. It is as much of a cliché to divine cold strategy in his every move as it is to pretend that strategy didn't exist for, say, Janis Joplin. For those preferring to see Bowie as a contortionist auto-Svengali, the main revelation of the reissued live albums David Live and Stage will be how unafraid of imperfections he could be. These panoramic snapshots of 1970s Bowie (David Live came out in 1974, with Stage following mere four years later) mostly sound surprise like a good rock band at work, not a collection of virtuoso day laborers supplicating at the feet of the Artiste.

This 1999 session finds Honeyboy working his acoustic magic in the company of Madison Slim on harmonica and Jimmy D. Lane, son of the late Jimmy Rogers, on second guitar. Recorded at the Blue Heaven Studios (a converted church) in Salina, Kansas, this is a pretty inspired session with Edwards running through old classics like Charlie Patton's "High Water Everywhere" and "Pony Blues", "Drop Down Mama", "Shake 'Em on Down", "Anna Lee", "Bullfrog Blues", and "Monkey Face Woman". As an added bonus, there's also an interview with this fascinating bluesman, making this session a real keeper. One of his best.
