Fats Waller - Ain´t Misbehavin´ (LP)
€ 14.95 *
zzgl. € 3.99 Versand

(RCA International) 12 Tracks - Neuauflage der Original 1956er ´RCA´ LP Jeder Mann ist zumindest etwas komplizierter, als er zu sein scheint - sogar für sich selbst. Fats Waller war komplizierter als die meisten anderen. Für sein großes und begeistertes Publikum war er ein eindimensionaler Mann, ein lustiger Entertainer, der auch Klavier spielte. Für Jazzmusiker und seine Vertrauten war er ein reicher, kreativer Pianist, der zufällig ein außergewöhnlicher Entertainer war. Für seine Familie und diejenigen, die ihn außergewöhnlich gut kannten, war er ein Musiker mit breiteren Ambitionen und Bedürfnissen. Er hatte eine große Bibliothek mit klassischer Musik, und sein langjähriger Kollege Gene Sedric bemerkt: ´´Er liebte Bach besonders. Er liebte auch die Orgel und hätte sie gerne mehr gespielt; aber sein Publikum würde nicht stillsitzen, so fühlte er, denn Fats Waller spielte einen Bach-Choral oder einen geistlichen Ernst auf der Orgel. Und er liebte es auch, Jazz zu spielen. Die wahren Triumphe, die Fats schätzte´´, kommentieren Rudi Blesh und Harriet Janis in They All Played Ragtime, waren nicht die öffentlichen. Ruhige Backroom-Sessions mit James P. und Willie the Lion und The Beetle, als der Gin und die kreative Inspiration flossen. . .´ Dennoch habe ich das Gefühl, dass er auch einige der öffentlichen Erinnerungen liebte. Sein Witz war so lebhaft, dass ich davon ausgehe, dass er es genoss, ein großes Publikum nach einem seiner Schäfte herausfallen zu sehen - besonders vielleicht, wenn es satirisch war. Außerhalb des Standes oder der Bühne war Fats für seine herkulischen Genüsse bekannt. Denen, die seinen Gin teilten, muss er das Vorbild eines Hedonisten gewesen sein. Doch, sagt Gene Sedric, ´´er war auch sehr religiös, sehr religiös. Er war ein Bibelstudent. Ich glaube, dass er seinen Ehrgeiz gelebt hatte, eine ´´große reisende religiöse Show´´ zu haben. Sein Vater, Edward Martin Waller, war Diakon und später Pastor der Abessinier-Baptistenkirche in New York. Auch seine Mutter Adaline war fromm. Und auch die Musik und das religiöse Erbe waren in der Familie. Adaline Waller war Pianistin, Organistin und Sängerin. Fats´ Großvater, Adolph, war Geiger; und nach den Recherchen von Blesh und Janis hatte er nach dem Bürgerkrieg den Süden bereist. Die Kombination von säkularen Freuden und anhaltendem religiösem Interesse, die Wallers persönliches Leben prägte, wurde zum Teil in seiner musikalischen Entwicklung begleitet. Nach klassischen Studien und Spielen in der Kirche und bei Gebetstreffen, als er noch ein Junge war. Fats wurde zunehmend fasziniert von der wirbelnden Welt der Ragtime, des Jazz und der Theatermusik. Sein Vater betrachtete diese letztere Art der musikalischen Ablenkung zunächst als ´´aus der Werkstatt des Teufels´´, aber Fats fand es möglich, sowohl Carolina Shout als auch einen Bach-Chor zu genießen und zu spielen - je nachdem, in welcher Stimmung man sich befand. Als Fats in der Werkstatt des Teufels mehr Erfolg hatte, musste er seine Liebe für die andere Musik meist privat befriedigen. Und er wollte immer mehr in dieser Sprache spielen und schreiben. Als er sich seinem vierzigsten Jahr näherte, hoffte er in der Tat, bald weniger reisen und mehr komponieren zu können. Aber er starb mit 39 Jahren. Obwohl er wahrscheinlich keine Ahnung von einem so frühen Tod hatte, lebte Fats, als wäre seine Zeit knapp bemessen. Blesh und Janis schätzen, dass Fats seit der Zeit, als er im Oktober 1922 seine ersten Soli für Okeh machte, auf fast 500 Platten und einer großen Anzahl von Spieler-Piano-Rollen spielte. Und obwohl er oft lange genug zum Komponieren gezwungen wurde, hat er in seinem kurzen Leben über 400 Musikstücke urheberrechtlich geschützt, viele davon sind so beständig wie Honeysuckle Rose, Ain´t Misbehavin, Squeeze Me und Keepin´ Out of Mischief Now. Fats wurde auch nicht zu ausgedehnten Proben für seine Plattenaufnahmen oder Konzerte eingeladen. Die Intensität und Schnelligkeit, mit der er lebte und balancierte und sich selten ausruhte, ließ keine Zeit für Zeit. Aber er schien sich selten darum zu kümmern, dass er kalt aufnehmen oder kalt schreiben musste. Fats´´, sagt Gene Sedric, ´´war der entspannteste Mann, den ich je in einem Studio gesehen habe. Und so brachte er alle anderen dazu, sich entspannt zu fühlen. Nachdem ein Gleichgewicht gefunden wurde, brauchten wir nur einen Take, um eine Seite zu bilden, es sei denn, es war eine schwierige Zahl. Und, wie der französische Kritiker Frank Tenot bemerkt

The Columbus Affair: A Novel , Hörbuch, Digital...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

He was called by many names - Columb, Colom, Col - but we know him as Christopher Columbus. Many questions about him exist: Where was he born, raised, and educated? Where did he die? How did he discover the New World? None have ever been properly answered. And then there is the greatest secret of all.... From Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author, comes an exciting new adventure - one that challenges everything we thought we knew about the discovery of America. Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Tom Sagan has written hard-hitting articles from hot spots around the world. But when a controversial report from a war-torn region is exposed as a fraud, his professional reputation crashes and burns. Now he lives in virtual exile - haunted by bad decisions and the shocking truth he can never prove: That his downfall was a deliberate act of sabotage by an unknown enemy. But before Sagan can end his torment with the squeeze of a trigger, fate intervenes in the form of an enigmatic stranger with a request that cannot be ignored. Zachariah Simon has the look of a scholar, the soul of a scoundrel, and the zeal of a fanatic. He also has Tom Sagan´s estranged daughter at his mercy. Simon desperately wants something only Sagan can supply: the key to a 500-year-old mystery, a treasure with explosive political significance in the modern world. For both Simon and Sagan the stakes are high, the goal intensely personal, and the consequences of opposing either man potentially catastrophic. On a perilous quest from Florida to Vienna to Prague and finally to the mountains of Jamaica, the two men square off in a dangerous game. Along the way, both of their lives will be altered - and everything we know about Christopher Columbus will change. As a special bonus, this audiobook download also includes a recording of the short story ´´The Admiral´s Mark,´´ read by Scott Brick. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Brick.

Dispatches from the Sofa: The Collected Wisdom ...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Over the course of the last 10 years, Frank Skinner has toured sell-out stand-up shows, hosted countless TV shows and an award-winning radio programme, written two well-received volumes of memoir, as well as recording a couple of pop songs and learning to play the ukulele. He has been a busy man. Yet, for the last two years, he has also managed to squeeze in a weekly column for The Times. Without fail, he sat down every week and wracked his brain to think of something to write 900 words about. Dispatches from the Sofa is the brilliant result. Alighting on such random topics as the potential demise of Margaret Thatcher, the love-hate relationship with your football club, Mike Read’s musical of Oscar Wilde, fat pop stars, Serbian breakfast banter, the pleasures of air-guitar, the banking crisis and the evil phenomenon of Jedward, this is a thought-provoking, wide-reaching, hilarious and self-deprecating collection - which also includes the first two chapters from his unpublished novel - from one of our funniest, quickest and most beloved comedians. 1.
