Publisher: HarperCollins; 1st edition | 2000 | ISBN-10: 0060194391 | ISBN-13: 978 0060194390 | English | PDF | 352 pages | 10.16 Mb

Jean-François Champollion's biography is neatly interwoven with Napoleonic history and the functions of Egyptian hieroglyphs in The Keys of Egypt. A gifted bookseller's son born in Revolutionary France, Champollion was to become "gripped by energetic enthusiasm" for Egypt. By the age of 12, he was studying several ancient languages, and, amid a "wave of Egyptomania," he would beat rivals to discover the key to deciphering hieroglyphs. …

Roy Montgomery - R M H Q: Headquarters
Post-Rock, Ambient, Space Rock | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 173:50 min | 398 MB
Label: Grapefruit | Tracks: 30 | Rls.date: 2016

It's been over a decade since Roy Montgomery's last album, and R M H Q is a hell of a return. This release contains four distinct records of new material. Listening to any of his work is a visceral experience repeating phrases swell and decay, immersing the listener in the cyclical narrative of his compositions. Montgomery was in his rock band period in the eighties, when the dark, minimalist post-punk of The Pin Group lead into the gloriously open-ended freedoms of Dadamah.

Genre: Big Band, Swing, Mainstream Jazz | Label: Columbia | # CK 45275 | Time: 01:01:18

This CD contains the best recordings from the early years of the fiery trumpeter Roy Eldridge. Eldridge, one of the great swing trumpeters and a powerful player into the 1970s, is heard with Teddy Hill's orchestra, backing singer Putney Dandridge, on four titles with Fletcher Henderson (including the hit "Christopher Columbus"), starring on a four-song session with Teddy Wilson, joining Billie Holiday on "Falling in Love Again," soloing on two numbers with Mildred Bailey (his "I'm Nobody's Baby" solo is years ahead of its time), and, best of all, leading a small group through six songs (plus an alternate) from his own explosive sessions of January 1937. This brilliant music is essential for all serious jazz collections.

Roy Orbison's 1961 and 1962 Monument albums, Sings Lonely and Blue and Crying, are drawn together on one CD. All of the original faults are still present, including the relatively lightweight content, but the familiar singles plus the Orbison covers of pieces such as "Love Hurts," coupled with the excellent sound, make this a good investment. And the annotation isn't bad, either.

Antoine Pelissolo, Stéphane Roy, "Ne plus rougir et accepter le regard des autres"
Odile Jacob | 2009 | ISBN: 2738123252 | French | EPUB | 196 pages | 0.4 MB

Qui n'a jamais rougi ? C'est une réaction banale et a priori bénigne. Mais certaines personnes en souffrent énormément. Un regard, un geste, un simple mot peuvent suffire à déclencher le malaise. Peu à peu, les situations sociales deviennent sources de peur et de honte. On finit par les fuir et se couper du monde. Longtemps négligée par les soignants, l'éreutophobie, c'est-à-dire la peur de rougir, est aujourd'hui l'objet d'études scientifiques qui ont permis de mettre au point des méthodes de traitement efficaces. …

Although we know little about Robert de Visee (c.1655-1733), he was an important figure in French Baroque music, both as chamber musician to Louis XIV and later as the guitar tutor of Louis XV. He published works, mostly in the form of suites of dances, for guitar, and for the lute and theorbo (a type of bass lute popular in the 17th century).
