Intimidante et complexe, la physique est aussi une discipline du quotidien. C'est ce que démontre cet ouvrage qui, de la théorie des couleurs à la fusion nucléaire, décortique les principales lois de la physique jusque dans leurs applications pratiques. Des concepts fondamentaux (lois de Newton ou de Kepler) jusqu'aux découvertes récentes (trous noirs, Big Bang), enrichi de citations, de rappels historiques et de notices biographiques, ce manuel permet d'assimiler des notions complexes mais passionnantes!

There may never be another Chet Baker, but on this particular night in Zagreb, poor Baker was not playing his best: His chops are weak, and his voice is strained and shallow. Still, these four duos, with longtime collaborator, guitarist Philip Catherine, have their rewards, such as the lengthy, substantial, and melodic solos by the guitarist.
Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. A wonderful little record from pianist Joanne Brackeen – unlike anything the artist ever recorded, as it's just a set of duets with guitarist Ryo Kawasaki, who brings in some really beautiful elements to the mix! Ryo plays an acoustic nylon string guitar, but with a dexterity that most other players would use on electric – and the balance of his instrument with Brackeen's piano is sublime – full of colors and imaginative tones, but also a fair degree of rhythmic impulses too – which guide the duo in ways that are completely refreshing throughout!
Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. A hell of a record from this wonderful pianist – partly because the set only features the bass of Clint Houston for accompaniment, and no other instrumentation at all! Clint's sound is wonderful – full, rich, and extremely rhythmic – so much so, there's no need for drums at all on the record, as Houston blocks things out and paces the record from the strings up – with a commanding majesty that really seems echoed by Brackeen's lines on piano – every bit as lyrical and fluid as ever, but maybe even more powerful too! The whole thing's beautiful – more commanding than you might expect, especially for Brackeen – and titles include "Freedent", "Solar", "New True Illusion", "Steps What Was", and "Search For Peace".
Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. Really great work from pianist Joanne Brackeen – a player who's always got plenty to offer, but who really seems to find a special space here – working in a unique trio that features Clint Houston on bass and Ryo Kawasaki on guitar! Houston's bass is wonderful – full, rich, and very well-rounded – an element that brings so much depth to the record that both Ryo and Joanne can really take off – Kawasaki on these colorful lines that have a bit more bite than his more fusiony guitar albums as a leader, and Brackeen with these incredibly deft, incredibly well-spun lines on piano. The balance of sounds is wonderful – very fresh and unique – and titles include "Aft", "Haiti B", "Dreamers", and "Winter Is Here".
Burnin' At Backstreet was recorded at the Backstreet Club in New haven Connecticut on February 19, 1980. Baker and Frank appear in a quartet format with bassist Michael Formanek and pianist Drew Salperto. The repertoire is wholly Baker. Baker loved the Miles Davis songbook and his performances of Davis originals were always more rounded and open than Davis.' "Tune Up," the modal "Milestones" and craggy "Four" share the stage with another Baker favorite, Dizzy Gillespie's "Blue 'n Boogie." Baker is in good solo form on these up tempo numbers. His tone is fat and confident, even when presented tartly, like the opening of "Milestones"…
