2008 release of this '60s recording by the American Jazz drummer Kenny Clarke and Belgian pianist Francy Boland, leading one of the finest Jazz ensembles ever assembled outside of the U.S. Had it not been for the post-war migration of many top American Jazz musicians to Europe, it is quite likely that the legendary Clarke-Boland Big Band might never have come into existence. As it happened, when Gigi Campi set up the first Big Band record date in Cologne in 1961, he was able to call upon such distinguished self-exiled Jazz stars as Benny Bailey (originally from Cleveland, Ohio), Sahib Shihab (Savannah, Georgia), Jimmy Woode (Boston, Massachusetts) and, of course, Kenny Clarke (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania).

Reissue of the album recorded with Dusko Goykovich, et al. 24bit digitally remastered. Cardboard sleeve (mini LP). This is one of the rarest of all Blue Note albums, and one that is a must for record collectors. The Francy Boland/Kenny Clarke big band was one of the most exciting orchestras of the 1960s and ‘70s. Much less known but also brilliant was a unique octet co-led by Boland and Clarke just prior to the big band.

Knowledge is Power (Icon Science): How Magic, the Government and an Apocalyptic Vision Helped Francis Bacon to Create Modern Science by John Henry
English | November 2nd, 2017 | ASIN: B072KJGK6V, ISBN: 1785782363 | 192 Pages | EPUB | 2.14 MB

Francis Bacon - a leading figure in the history of science - never made a major discovery, provided a lasting explanation of any physical phenomena or revealed any hidden laws of nature. How then can he rank as he does alongside Newton?

Francis Poulenc's songs are among the most beautiful and accomplished in the entire French repertoire. A friend of poets like Apollinaire, Eluard, Aragon and Louise de Vilmorin, he was constantly alert to their imaginative worlds and their mystery. The voluptuous or nostalgic nonchalance, the gentle melancholy or the impertinent flippancy of these works never appear to take themselves seriously, and invariably represent the highest art. On this recording, the renowned Belgian soprano Sophie Karthauser returns to harmonia mundi for her first recital program, performing a generous selection of Poulenc's Melodies.

Pope Francis' Little Book of Compassion: The Essential Teachings

Pope Francis' Little Book of Compassion: The Essential Teachings by Andrea Kirk Assaf
English | March 1st, 2017 | ISBN: 1571747788 | 72 Pages | EPUB | 0.59 MB

Exploring themes universal to all people, Pope Francis’ Little Book of Compassion offers inspiration and hope from one of the world’s great spiritual leaders. In it, the Holy Father explores how living a life of compassion can be practiced in five areas of life: prayer, mercy, forgiveness, solidarity, and charity.

Although Kabalevsky is ranked with Shostakovich and Prokofiev among the former Soviet Union's leading composers, he is relatively unknown to today's listening public. His natural talent for catchy melodies, clear structures, and drive appealing to listening audiences made it easy for him to write music that is pleasantly tickling to the ears on a first listen, and holds its own on theoretical analysis. This is masterfully written music of great appeal and full of wit and charm.

How much was archaeology founded on prejudice? The Archaeology of Race explores the application of racial theory to interpret the past in Britain during the late Victorian and Edwardian period. It investigates how material culture from ancient Egypt and Greece was used to validate the construction of racial hierarchies.
