Laurie Berkner’s Song and Story Kitchen weaves Laurie’s stories, original music, and age-appropriate themes into her fun-filled kitchen where she whips up yummy food, songs, and stories along with her good friend and sidekick, Thelonius Pig (Josiah Gaffney). Each chapter in the multi-hour audio series revolves around a different food and story from the world of Juniper Fields - the magical home of Laurie's friends Oscar Beebee the bumblebee, Layla Meeska the mouse, Tallulah Jones the dinosaur, and ferret cousins Victor Vito and Freddie Vasco. From there, Laurie adds in some of the greatest hits by The Laurie Berkner Band (with Susie Lampert - keyboard, Bob Golden - drums and percussion, and Brady Rymer - bass), brand-new recordings, and story-based entertainment for kids aged 3-8. Those familiar with Berkner's iconic songs, such as "We Are the Dinosaurs", "Victor Vito", "The Goldfish (Let's Go Swimming)", and "I'm Gonna Catch You" will hear the music throughout the series and recognize themes and imagery playfully reimagined in the vibrant world of Juniper Fields. Important lessons and takeaway themes include: Choose to be Kind, Express Yourself, Find a Way to Help, Self-Confidence, and Be Curious. Laurie Berkner is one of most popular children’s entertainers in the US. She and her band, The Laurie Berkner Band, have filled countless venues nationwide with adoring fans and sold millions of albums, songs, and videos. Meet Laurie's Friends from Juniper Fields: Oscar Beebee the bumblebee loves to read and spell.Layla Meeska the mouse loves to build things.Tallulah Jones the dinosaur loves to sing and make music.Victor Vito and Freddie Vasco love to invent things and investigate their world.Cover art designed by Eliza Sturgeon.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

Raising Hell
20,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When one raises their voice on behalf of the voiceless, the discarded, abused, and oppressed, they may indeed catch 'hell' from those in power who would cruelly prefer them to remain mute, unheard, and battered. In a story entailing his own abuse suffered in childhood and adolescence, to gang life in South Central LA., his experience through the LA civil unrest from the Rodney King verdict, and his incarceration - to his life-changing acceptance of Islam, Najee Ali's story is one of redemption: whose past shaped him for the journey of representing the underdog. Raising Hell entails 18 behind-the-scenes accounts of his activist involvement, such as the Presidential campaign run of Reverend Jesse Jackson in 1988, and a glimpse of then unknown Barack Obama during his Senate and Presidential campaigns, protests against gangsta Rap music, its destructive messages, and the fight against police brutality and racial profiling in Southern California. Raising Hell is a compelling story of a raw and fearless activist who holds to his truth: 'I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I'm a human being, first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.' Malcolm X. Through faith-guided and unrelenting activism, Ali managed to accomplish what many seasoned 'leaders' only dreamed. Along Ali's life journey, he has intertwined with entertainment icons such as Michael Jackson, Steve Harvey, civil and social justice activists Dick Gregory, Martin Luther King III, Rev. Al Sharpton, Congressmember Karen Bass, business leaders Magic Johnson, John 'Hope' Bryant, Kathy Hughes, Journalists Roland Martin, and Tavis Smiley.

Hard Bop
14,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

It's nineteen fifty-something, in a dark, cramped, smoke-filled room. Everyone's wearing black. And on-stage a tenor is blowing his heart out, a searching, jagged saxophone journey played out against a moody, walking bass and the swish of a drummer's brushes. To a great many listeners--from African American aficionados of the period to a whole new group of fans today--this is the very embodiment of jazz. It is also quintessential hard bop. In this, the first thorough study of the subject, jazz expert and enthusiast David H. Rosenthal vividly examines the roots, traditions, explorations and permutations, personalities and recordings of a climactic period in jazz history. Beginning with hard bop's origins as an amalgam of bebop and R&B, Rosenthal narrates the growth of a movement that embraced the heavy beat and bluesy phrasing of such popular artists as Horace Silver and Cannonball Adderley; the stark, astringent, tormented music of saxophonists Jackie McLean and Tina Brooks; the gentler, more lyrical contributions of trumpeter Art Farmer, pianists Hank Jones and Tommy Flanagan, composers Benny Golson and Gigi Gryce; and such consciously experimental and truly one-of-a-kind players and composers as Andrew Hill, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, and Charles Mingus. Hard bop welcomed all influences--whether Gospel, the blues, Latin rhythms, or Debussy and Ravel--into its astonishingly creative, hard-swinging orbit. Although its emphasis on expression and downright 'badness' over technical virtuosity was unappreciated by critics, hard bop was the music of black neighborhoods and the last jazz movement to attract the most talented young black musicians. Fortunately, records were there to catch it all. The years between 1955 and 1965 are unrivaled in jazz history for the number of milestones on vinyl. Miles Davis's Kind of Blue, Charles Mingus's Mingus Ah Um, Thelonious Monk's Brilliant Corners, Horace Silver's Further Explorations--Rosenthal gives a perceptive cut-by-cut analysis of these and other jazz masterpieces, supplying an essential discography as well. For knowledgeable jazz-lovers and novices alike, Hard Bop is a lively, multi-dimensional, much-needed examination of the artists, the milieus, and above all the sounds of one of America's great musical epochs.

Fly Fishing the Louisiana Coast: A Complete Gui...
23,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Great fishing in great settings with great people and great food, too! Where else can you catch tarpon, eat authentic jambalaya, and dance to zydeco, all in one day? This is the first, and definitive, guide to saltwater fly fishing in Louisiana-inshore, coastal, and offshore. This where-to, how-to guide's coverage begins on the western edge of Cajun Country, in the Lake Charles region, and extends east to the Mississippi River Delta. Louisiana harbors an amazing range of fish: redfish, specks, flounder, tripletail, cobia, tarpon, crevalle jacks, and Spanish mackerel, even largemouth bass, and the author cues you in to what gear to bring, from rod to fly, and provides essential information on local guides; marinas; sporting goods; outfitters; suggestions for sightseeing on your fishing down time; accommodations, from motels to plantation beds; and venues for authentic regional 'good eating' and music. Many of Louisiana's year-round saltwater opportunities, both offshore and inshore, were developed in the past 10 years. In that time, there's been a growth of fly fishing in the state, and catch-and-release has replaced the ice-chest as a measure of fishing success. Whether you're sight-casting, blind-casting, surfcasting, or casting from your 'mud-boat,' here's your chance to hook into your biggest fish ever. Conventioneers and revelers alike in the Big Easy-pack your rod for your next trip, and get out and fish!
