Frank Sinatra was arguably the most important popular music figure of the 20th century, his only real rivals for the title being Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, and the Beatles. In a professional career that lasted 60 years, he demonstrated a remarkable ability to maintain his appeal and pursue his musical goals despite often countervailing trends. He came to the fore during the swing era of the 1930s and '40s, helped to define the "sing era" of the '40s and '50s, and continued to attract listeners during the rock era that began in the mid-'50s. He scored his first number one hit in 1940 and was still making million-selling recordings in 1994.

It took Frank Rosolino's widow Diane many years to find a label willing to release this music, and that is understandable. Frank Rosolino, one of jazz's greatest trombonists, went crazy on November 26, 1978, shooting two of his sons and killing himself. The completely unexpected turn of events from a trombonist who was witty and always seemed in good spirits was a shock to the jazz world, but he had apparently suffered from depression for years. In addition, the music on The Last Recording, recorded less than four months before the horrible ending, features Rosolino using a Multivider on his horn, an electronic device that gave him a sound in three octaves at once.

Di cosa parliamo quando parliamo di Anne Frank - Nathan Englander
Italian | 2012 | 193 Pages | ISBN: 8806213016 | EPUB | 893.2 KB

Si respira un'aria antica fra le pagine di questa nuova raccolta di racconti di Nathan Englander. C'è l'immutabilità della parabola e la sapienza della narrazione ebraica, c'è il grottesco di Gogol' e l'ineludibilità di Kafka, l'intelligenza caustica di Philip Roth e la spiritualità applicata di Marilynne Robinson. E intorno a tutto, incontenibile, liberatoria, un po' sacrilega, una sonora risata. La scrittura di Englander corre agile sul filo teso fra il religioso e il secolare, agile e mai leggera, esplora gli obblighi e le complessità morali dei due versanti, ne assapora le esilaranti debolezze, strappando sorrisi pronti a congelarsi in smorfie attonite…

Frank Reaugh (1860–1945; pronounced “Ray”) was called “the Dean of Texas artists” for good reason. His pastels documented the wide-open spaces of the West as they were vanishing in the late nineteenth century, and his plein air techniques influenced generations of artists.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Those only familiar with Frank Rosolino’s trombone work may be surprised to find out that he also dabbled in vocals as well. Rosolino was highly regarded as a trombonist, especially on the West Coast scene, but seldom recorded as a leader; Free For All on the Specialty label is probably his best known work. Turn Me Loose features Rosolino doing double duty as soloist and vocalist, a la Chet Baker, and one could judge solely by the cover that this is an entertaining record by a man who is marching to the beat of a different drummer.
