A HBO series from the minds of Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, Band of Brothers is a ten-episode miniseries. It is based on the Stephen Ambrose book "Band of Brothers: E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne From Normandy to Hitler's Eagle's Nest".
The show follows the path of Easy Company, an elite paratrooper unit, as they go from basic training in Camp Toccoa, to parachuting into D-Day, to their critical role in the Battle of the Bulge, and finally their triumph at the end of the war. They were one of the best trained and most successful units in all of American military history.
Band of Brothers was nominated for 19 Emmy awards, and won 6. It won a Golden Globe for "Best Mini-Series and Motion Picture Made for Television". The award winning series also won an American Film Institute Award, a Peabody Award, and a Writer's Guild Award.
Prix Django Reinhardt, prix Boris Vian, prix audiovisuel de l'Europe, Django d'or, au fil des années, de clubs en concerts, d'enregistrements en festivals, à travers son jeu inventif et sa présence scènique, il s'est affirmé comme une des créatrices personnalités du jazz en europe. Le Monde, Francis Marmande : Le Big Band de Jean-Loup Longnon Trompettiste de tempérament, personnalité bruyante, Jean-Loup Longnon n'est jamais si vivant qu'à la tête de sa légion. Il aime les masses sonores, les chocs de sections, l'allégresse et la puissance que dégage une machine qui tourne. Il a les moyens de le faire savoir : l'entourage choisi, le goût de l'écriture et l'énergie communicative de la direction d'orchestre.
Americans pride themselves on being doers rather than thinkers. Ideas are naturally suspect to such a people. But ideas are at the root of what it means to be American, and today's habits of thought practiced by citizens throughout the United States are the lineal descendants of a powerful body of ideas that traces back to the first European settlers and that was enriched by later generations of American thinkers.
For roughly half a decade, from 1968 through 1975, the Band was one of the most popular and influential rock groups in the world, their music embraced by critics (and, to a somewhat lesser degree, the public) as seriously as the music of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Their albums were analyzed and reviewed as intensely as any records by their one-time employer and sometime mentor Bob Dylan. Although the Band retired from touring after The Last Waltz and disbanded several years later, their legacy thrived for decades, perpetuated by the bandmates' respective solo careers as well as the enduring strength of the Band's catalog.
