This difficult to find recording is worth the search; it contains some of the finest recorded work of Al Haig's enigmatic career. Haig was an important figure in the early development of bebop piano and can be heard as a sideman on many seminal recordings from the 1940s, including Salt Peanuts and Hot House. His refined classical technique was relatively unique at the time, and he was admired as a superb accompanist. Between the mid-'50s and the early 1970s there is a curiously large gap in his recorded output evidently due to personal problems. In fact, Al Haig Today! appears to be his only release as a leader during the '60s.

By 1965, trumpeter Al Hirt was a commercial success, although from the jazz standpoint most of his output for RCA was becoming increasingly forgettable. Although he was joined by the Gerald Wilson Orchestra for nine of the 13 selections on this live LP, all of the selections (other than a six-minute rendition of "Carnival of Venice") are quite brief, with several under two minutes. Hirt shows off his technique on a variety of showy devices, but every note sounds planned in advance, whether it be "Bye Bye Blues", "Down By the Riverside" or a remake of his hit "Java".

Jim Al-Khalili - La casa della saggezza. L'epoca d'oro della scienza araba
Italian | 2013 | 341 pages | ISBN: 8833923118 | EPUB | 1,2 MB

Nel IX secolo il califfo abbaside di Baghdad, Abù Ja'far Abdullah al-Ma'mun, creò uno dei centri di studio più imponenti che la storia umana abbia mai conosciuto, noto col nome di Bayt al-Hikma, La casa della saggezza. Jim Al-Khalili ci svela i nomi dei protagonisti di questa avventura meravigliosa: Abu Rayhan al-Biruni, Ibn al-Shatir, al-Khwàrizmi, Ibn al-Haytham, al-Ràzi ed altri ancora. Dietro a questi nomi, per noi quasi sconosciuti, si nascondono le vite e le opere di scienziati che hanno di fatto posto le basi del mondo moderno. L'autore ricostruisce con straordinaria perizia la storia di un'epoca nella quale menti geniali spinsero le frontiere della conoscenza così in là da plasmare le civiltà che seguirono, fino ai giorni nostri. Il suo libro è anche un tentativo di reintrodurre in Occidente un pezzo fondamentale di una cultura a lungo ignorata e in buona parte ancora da esplorare..

Jazz / Cool / Bop / West Coast Jazz / Saxophone

Backed by some of the top bop players of the day, Al Cohn stretches out here for a program heavy with up-tempo swingers. Cut in two sessions during 1950 and 1953, Cohn's Tones finds the usually more mellow tenor great feeding off the driving drum work of both Tiny Kahn and Max Roach. Besides the ballad evergreen "How Long Has This Been Going On" and a bluesy "Ah-Moore," the eight-track set is all Cohn originals done in a Lester Young-on-the-West Coast style. Also featuring the talents of pianist Horace Silver, this early Cohn release is at once hot and cool, vigorous and lithe.
