More energetic efforts with a decidedly rocked-up edge. Johnny Winter, long an ardent admirer of Brooks back to the Guitar Junior days, drops by with a passel of fiery guitar licks for the title track and "Got Lucky Last Night."
British pop-jazz-blues crooner Elkie Brooks (born Elaine Bookbinder) dominated U.K. radio in the late '70s with a series of hit singles that established her as "the biggest-selling female album artist in the history of the British pop charts." The Manchester native, who grew up in an extremely musical family, left school at the age of 15 to join a dance band in London. She eventually mad the jump to radio, as well as numerous appearances with legendary jazz bandleader Humphrey Lyttelton, before embarking on a career in pop music. The early '60s saw the budding young singer releasing singles for Decca and EMI, as well as opening for everyone from Carl Perkins to the Beatles, but commercial success remained elusive.
Garth Brooks has announced the release of a career-spanning multi-part anthology. Beginning on November 14th, Brooks will release Part 1: The First Five Years, which chronicles 1989 through 1993.
Reissue features the latest digital remastering and the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and the latest DSD / HR Cutting remastering. Comes with a description. Features the original LP designs. A pretty great live set by Billy Taylor and his early trio with Earl May on bass and Percy Brice on drums – recorded at Town Hall in 1954! Taylor is actually pretty darn amazing on the set – very much the virtuoso, playing with an incredible range and an almost modern approach to the tunes – one that seems looser, and more expressive than some of his previous studio sessions for Prestige Records – in a way that makes this album a gem well worth seeking out! Titles include "Theodora", "A Foggy Day", "How High The Moon", and "I'll Remember April".
Reissue with latest 2014 DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. One of the key turning points of Louis Armstrong's career occurred at the Town Hall concert fully documented on this two-CD set, a reissue of the earlier two-LP release. Armstrong, who had been leading a big band for 18 years, was showcased with some musical friends who were all very complementary players (including trombonist Jack Teagarden, clarinetist Peanuts Hucko and cornetist Bobby Hackett), and the results were so exciting that Armstrong soon broke up his orchestra to form a similar all-star sextet.
La dimension cachée, c'est celle du territoire de tout être vivant, animal ou humain, de l'espace nécessaire à son équilibre. Mais chez l'homme, cette dimension devient culturelle. Ainsi, chaque civilisation a sa manière de concevoir les déplacements du corps, l'agencement des maisons, les conditions de la conversation, les frontières de l'intimité. Ces études comparatives jettent une lumière neuve sur la connaissance que nous pouvons avoir d'autrui et sur le danger que nous courons, dans nos cites modernes, à ignorer cette dimension cachée : peut-être est -ce moins le surpeuplement qui nous menace que la perte de notre identité. …
Edward T. Hall a montré, dans La Dimension cachée, que l'espace interpersonnel est une dimension de la culture. Le Langage silencieux avait conduit cette réflexion sur d'autres systèmes du même genre, et notamment le temps. Qu'est-ce qu'être en retard ? qu'est-ce qu'attendre ? par exemple. Le message exprimé là est différent selon qu'il vient d'un Européen, d'un Américain ou d'un Japonais. …
