Chef François grew up in a luscious world shaped by the celebration of the table from his very beginnings. It was natural that his path would eventually lead from hanging off his Maman's apron strings and learning to cook her free-spirited style into some of the nation's most memorable restaurants.

A Canticle for Leibowitz (Audiobook)

A Canticle for Leibowitz (Audiobook) By Walter M. Miller Jr.
English | 1998 | ISBN: 0736642676 , 1455120235 | MP3 | 156 MB

Deep in the Utah desert, Brother Francis of the Albertian Order of Leibowitz has miraculously discovered the relics of the martyr Isaac Leibowitz himself, including the blessed blueprint and the sacred shopping list. They may provide a ray of hope in a terrifying age of darkness, a time of ignorance and genetic monsters that are the unholy aftermath of the Flame Deluge. As the mystery unfolds, it is the search for meaning, for truth, and for love, that offers hope to a humanity teetering on the edge of an abyss.
"Angry and eloquent…a terrific story." (New York Times)

This disc is essential for every Ray Conniff Fan, the music is delightful, romantic and excellent for dance; I rated it with 5 stars because every number in the disc makes me feel that I'm young and fresh! I played it to my mother (she was a really a Ray Conniff fan since 1955) and we thought it was the best example of "The Happy dance years of instrumental music"; My favourite numbers are "Stompin'at the Savoy", "Ebb Tide", "April love" and "I Understand", but every song in this disc is incredible, phenomenal, fabulous and excellent!!; It's Pure Ray Conniff!!!

Pablo producer Norman Granz put this session together spontaneously as a jam session, gathering musicians already at the Montreux Festival and asking if they wanted to play (Clark Terry was asked at the last moment). It's good Granz found and asked Terry to join, last moment or not, because he's tops on this occasion. He plays wonderfully on the unusual up-tempo version of “A Beautiful Freondship”, after Jaws misses the mark by a mile in his wailing and honking solo. Milt is featured on “Mean To Me” and plays it flawlessly, and “Slippery”, a Ray Brown tune that's kind of like an extended blues, is handled well by all. C.M.J. is a typical 12-bar blues you might expect to get in a jam session setting like this where everyone gets their taste and is gone, but that's the only tune that's like that. From the applause on the CD the Montreux crowd seemed very pleased with what was going down. It's easy to see why.

Following The Bicycle Thief, Vittorio De Sica’s second effort as a producer-director was acclaimed internationally, winning the Grand Prize at Cannes, and voted Best Foreign Film by the New York Film Critics in 1951. The story of a saint-like orphan boy who rises up to fight for the rights of vagabonds living in a shanty town threatened by a greedy developer, De Sica adds a playful, fairytale dimension to the film's grim social realism. Anticipating the surrealism of Fellini’s later work, Miracle in Milan plays as a neorealist fable, a heart-warming tale of good versus evil as the discarded people of the streets – portrayed by real-life homeless people – challenge the elite that consigned them to poverty. Through it all, the protagonist Toto is offered up as a ray of innocence and hope in a world sullied by avarice and injustice.
