(Book). If Howard Kaylan had sung only one song, the Turtles' 1967 No. 1 smash hit "Happy Together," his place in rock-and-roll history would still be secure.

A oltre vent’anni dalla sua scomparsa, la musica di Frank Zappa sembra trovare una nuova primavera, ispirando direttori d’orchestra, jazzisti, rappers e rockers. Ma Zappa non è solo musica. I suoi testi sono rimasti finora in secondo piano, considerati da lui stesso 'orpelli per rendere più vendibili i dischi’. Eppure basta guardare oltre e attraverso le 'stupid songs’, le innumerevoli provocazioni mai fini a se stesse, gli atteggiamenti politicamente scorretti, per scorgere una trama complessa che non si ferma al gioco della Continuità Concettuale ma che permea l’intera società americana…

A comprehensive collection of intervallic approaches for rock guitar. Nicolas Slonimsky published the Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns in 1947, which was largely ignored for years until the likes of John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, Allan Holdsworth, Frank Zappa, Paul Grabowsky and many other significant artists started crediting the material as a source of great inspiration, which sparked highly creative improvisation.

"I monumenti, una volta eretti, non si sviluppano più, né in altezza, né in larghezza. Possono sono crollare." Con l'intelligente ironia a cui siamo ormai abituati, nel suo nuovo libro Stefano Bollani traccia un personale catalogo dei grandi della musica, però non li affronta come "monumenti" intoccabili, ma li racconta da vicino. Ne viene fuori una ricca e umanissima galleria di personaggi, da Louis Armstrong a Gorni Kramer, da Renato Carosone a Francis Poulenc, da Nino Rota a Frank Zappa, e poi Elis Regina, Maurice Ravel, Billie Holiday, George Gershwin, Henry Purcell, Joao Gilberto, Erik Satie, Astor Piazzolla, passando per figure nascoste ma non meno importanti, come Nadia Boulanger, Wanda Landowska, Belinda Fate. Storie, aneddoti, curiosità e sguardi da intenditore, dietro i quali Bolllani lascia intravedere uno spirito che vaga e unisce queste anime artistiche in un'unica grande tribù, quella degli uomini che inseguono la libertà.
