Skids were an art-punk/punk rock and new wave band from Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland, founded in 1977 by Stuart Adamson (1958 - 2001, guitars / backing vocals / keyboards / percussion), William Simpson (bass guitar / backing vocals), Thomas Kellichan (drums) and Richard Jobson (vocals / guitar / keyboards). Their biggest success was the single "Into the Valley" in 1979. They played their first gig on 19 August 1977, at the Bellville Hotel in Pilmuir Street, Dunfermline, Scotland. Within six months they had issued the "Charles" EP on the No Bad record label, created by Sandy Muir, a Dunfermline music shop owner and then manager. The record brought them to the attention of national BBC Radio 1 DJ, John Peel. This led to a local support slot for The Clash. Virgin Records then signed up Skids in April 1978. The singles "Sweet Suburbia" and "The Saints Are Coming" both made commercial inroads, before "Into the Valley" reached the UK Top 10 singles chart in early 1979. The band also released their debut album Scared to Dance in 1979. It was recorded at The Townhouse Studios in London, England with production and keyboards by David Batchelor.

Having released numerous records of high regard, Mingus is considered one of the most important composers and performers of jazz as well as a pioneer in bass technique. Dozens of musicians passed through his bands and later went on to impressive careers. Mingus was also influential and creative as a band leader, recruiting talented and sometimes little-known artists whom he assembled into unconventional and revealing configurations. Nearly as well known as his ambitious music was Mingus' often fearsome temperament, which earned him the nickname "The Angry Man of Jazz." His refusal to compromise his musical integrity led to many on- stage eruptions, exhortations to musicians, and dismissals. Most of Mingus's music retained the hot and soulful feel of hard bop and drew heavily from black gospel music while sometimes drawing on elements of Third Stream, free jazz, and even classical music

Die Drum Along-Serie von Bosworth erfreut sich aufgrund der einfachen, schnell erfassbaren Notation und der hohen Qualität der Play Along-Tracks großer Beliebtheit. Die Songs sind jeweils notiert als Leadsheet mit den verschiedenen Songteilen und den entsprechenden Drumbeats. Dadurch lässt sich der Ablauf des jeweiligen Songs wesentlich schneller lernen und man kann sich ganz auf die Drumparts und aufs Schlagzeugspielen konzentrieren – darum geht es ja schließlich. Die Backing Tracks sind von hoher Soundqualität mit einem - für Drummer essentiell – ausgeprägtem Bass. Auf der CD ist jeder Song als Vollversion mit Gesang und als Play Along-Version ohne Schlagzeug (und mit Clicktrack) enthalten. Der Text ist zweisprachig Deutsch und Englisch. Dieser Band kommt mit 10 Songs aus Black Music & Soul zum mitgrooven. Inhalt: Get down on it - Kool and the Gang, We don't need another hero - Tina Turner, Unchain my heart - Ray Charles, Yeah right - Dionne Bromfield, Ain't no sunshine - Bill Withers, Son of a preacher man - Dusty Springfield, I say a little prayer - Aretha Franklin, Lovely Day - Bill Withers, Doo Wop (that thing) - Lauryn Hill, Give it up or turn it a loose - James Brown.
