Joe Oliver played cornet in Kid Ory's band when the trombonist declared him "King" of the New Orleans horn players, and Oliver took the title with him when bassist Bill Johnson invited him north to Chicago in 1919. Oliver assumed leadership of the band as it gradually took on its ultimate form with clarinetist Johnny Dodds, his brother Baby on drums, trombonist Honore Dutrey, and then its crowning touch, Oliver's young friend Louis Armstrong, arriving from New Orleans in 1922. Playing music that is at once complex and joyous, the Creole Jazz Band combines virtuosic breaks and solos with a tight blend of improvised and rehearsed ensembles, presenting a constantly shifting, delightful palette of fresh musical combinations.

By the time Oliver Nelson and his big band had recorded Fantabulous in March of 1964 for Argo, the great composer, saxophonist, conductor, and arranger was a man about town in New York. He had released some truly classic dates of his own as a leader in smaller group forms – Blues and the Abstract Truth and Full Nelson among them – and had done arrangement work for everyone from Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and Johnny Hodges, Nancy Wilson, Frank Wess, King Curtis, Etta Jones, Jimmy Smith, Jack Teagarden, Betty Carter, Billy Taylor, and Gene Ammons, to name more than a few. For Fantabulous, he took his working big band to Chicago for a gig sponsored by Daddy-O-Daylie, a famous local disc jockey.

Kid Ory was one of the great New Orleans pioneers, an early trombonist who virtually defined the "tailgate" style (using his horn to play rhythmic bass lines in the front line behind the trumpet and clarinet) and who was fortunate enough to last through the lean years so he could make a major comeback in the mid-'40s. Originally a banjoist, Ory soon switched to trombone and by 1911 was leading a popular band in New Orleans. Among his trumpeters during the next eight years were Mutt Carey, King Oliver and a young Louis Armstrong and his clarinetists included Johnny Dodds, Sidney Bechet, and Jimmie Noone. In 1919, Ory moved to California and in 1922 (possibly 1921) recorded the first two titles by a Black New Orleans jazz band ("Ory's Creole Trombone" and "Society Blues") under the band title of Spike's Seven Pods of Pepper Orchestra. In 1925 he moved to Chicago, played regularly with King Oliver, and recorded many classic sides with Oliver, Louis Armstrong (in his Hot Five and Seven), and Jelly Roll Morton, among others.

Defining the blues is a simple task: a basic I-IV-V chord progression laid over a 12-bar framework, however the blues have evolved from African-American field hollers through rough-hewn rural heavyweights such as Blind Lemon Jefferson to the immaculate guitar excursions of B.B. King.

The Best of Nat King Cole is part of EMI-Capitol Special Markets' Ten Best Series, where they selected ten hits from a popular artist on their roster. For the budget-minded, it's a nice collection of Nat King Cole's best-known hits, like "Unforgettable," "Ramblin' Rose," "Mona Lisa," "Walkin' My Baby Back Home" and "(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons." It certainly won't please either jazz purists or Cole collectors, but the budget-conscious looking for an affordable (albeit skimpy) sampler of well-known Cole should turn here.

Oliver Sacks - Su una gamba sola
Italian | Adelphi | 1991 | ISBN: 8845908286 | 241 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Un incidente di montagna in Norvegia: Oliver Sacks si ritrova su un letto con una gamba che, nella sua percezione, non gli appartiene più. All'inizio, pensa che il suo caso sia semplice e banale. Poi, si trova sprofondato in un «abisso di effetti bizzarri e anche terrificanti». Quella gamba alienata dal suo corpo lo induce a indagare «l'orrore e la meraviglia che occhieggiano dietro la vita e che sono celati, per così dire, dietro la superficie usuale della salute». Perdere la percezione di un arto lede l'immagine di se stessi, obbliga a chiedersi che cosa sia questo Sé che agisce in noi. Anche questa volta, Sacks indaga, e ci fa partecipi della sua indagine, attraverso il racconto: che sarà il racconto di uno strano viaggio «in avanti e all'indietro - perché questa sembra essere la natura del pensiero: ricondurci al suo punto di partenza, alla casa atemporale della mente».

Label: King's College Recordings | Release Year: 2016

King Colleges previous Requiem recording, that of Faures Requiem, was the best selling classical album of 2014, and was praised by Choir & Organ Magazine, Gramophone, The Times, and International Record Review. This new recording features another great French Requiem- Maurice Durufles 1947 work, in the composers original version. The release also includes Durufles Four Motets and his Messe Cum Jubilo. This recording is the last time the famous organ at Kings was played before it was removed for extensive restoration. The current form of the instrument dates from the early 20th century, but parts of the instrument date back to the early 1600s.
