A singer calls out to the crowd. An electric bass thumps out a beat. Horns blare, and strings swirl. These are the sounds of R & B. Rhythm and blues music evolved from all sorts of sounds: swinging jazz, gritty blues, and African American spiritual songs. The music's smooth mix of styles made it unique, and its passionate performers made it a sensation. Ever since Ray Charles hit the charts in the 1950s, R & B fans have held it down on dance floors. And R & B singers have belted out messages of love and calls for social change. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Intuitive.

In this hour, Charles Limb is a surgeon and musician who researches the way creativity works in the brain. He puts jazz musicians inside an fMRI to find out what the brain does during musical improvisation. Bass player Mike Pope is one of his subjects. Anne Strainchamps talks with them about the music and the science. Next, creativity is hard-wired in the human brain, but we could all learn to be more creative. Harvard psychologist Shelley Carson's research has identified seven different modes of creative thinking. She tells Anne Strainchamps how we can all learn to amplify our own creative abilities.Then, imagine beginning your life's work at age 72. In the 1770's, Mary Delaney invented the medium we now call collage. Her collection of botanically-correct floral collages is today housed in the British Museum. Poet Molly Peacock fell in love with the work and the artist and has written a meditation on both and on late-life creativity.Finally, cosmologist Brian Swimme and Religion scholar Mary Evelyn Tucker tell the story of the origins of the universe, from the Big Bang to the present moment. They describe the universe as a story of unceasing creativity. They talk with Steve Paulson about their new book and film, Journey of the Universe. [Broadcast Date: July 4, 2012] 1.

'From Mozart to Villa-Lobos and South African pop, Dodd brings out Walker's gift for illumination; best of all, these conversations have you searching out new-found fare as well as hearing familiar and forgotten music anew'. -- William Dart 'A wide-ranging and catholic view of the music-listening experience for our time - Walker is an ideally active listener, with Dodd an equally ideal interlocutor'. -- Martin Lodge Born and educated in Scotland, Marshall Walker lectured in English and American literature at Glasgow University from 1965 to 1980 after a spell at Rhodes University in South Africa. From 1981 until 2006 he was Professor of English at the University of Waikato in New Zealand. As Dean of Humanities he initiated and oversaw the establishment of Music at the University. An occasional broadcaster on music and literature, he introduced, for Radio New Zealand and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, concerts of the 2005 Sydney Sibelius Festival in which Sibelius's symphonies were performed by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy. He lives in Hamilton, New Zealand, with his wife, the Brazilian writer, Cláudia Pacce. Senior Music Producer for Radio New Zealand Concert, Tim Dodd was born and raised in Dunedin, New Zealand. His degree is in Physics but his primary passion was always for music. He landed his dream job at Radio New Zealand in 1990 and he's been there ever since, overseeing the broadcast and recording of live concerts and producing countless spoken features about music. Included among these are many interviews he has conducted with New Zealand and international musicians such as the pianist and writer Charles Rosen, violinists Shlomo Mintz and James Ehnes, American composer Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, cellist Raphael Wallfisch, jazz bass player Dave Holland and Brazilian guitarist and composer Egberto Gismonti. He lives in Auckland, New Zealand, with his wife and children. For over twenty years the two friends have been talking to each other about music. Tim Dodd produced Walker's award-winning Letters to Sibelius for Radio New Zealand Concert, the programmes reaching listeners in Australia and Scotland as well as New Zealand and forming the basis of Walker's book, Dear Sibelius: Letter from a Junky published by Kennedy and Boyd in 2008. The Music for Life conversations that followed were broadcast by Radio New Zealand in December 2009, but the talk went on. This book presents the ongoing conversations in the hope that readers will like to join in.
Karl Lawrence King (1891-1971) was born in Paintersville, Ohio, and ranks only behind Fillmore and Sousa as the foremost American march composer. King was a largely self-taught musician who learned the cornet early and soon was proficient enough to join the Thayer Military Band. In 1910 he moved to Columbus, Ohio and played baritone horn with the Neddermeyer Band, a professional band led by Fred Neddermeyer. He went on to play tuba in the Soldiers Home Band in Danville, Illinois, as well as in several circus bands, including Barnum and Bailey's, serving as leader of their band from 1917 to 1918. He learned to compose by studying scores, publishing his first composition at age 17 through Charles Barnhouse. Relations became somewhat strained with this publisher, which may have led to his use of the pseudonym Carl Lawrence and his decision to establish his own publishing company, the K.L. King Music House of Canton, Ohio, in 1919. In 1920 he moved to Fort Dodge, Iowa, as Director of the Fort Dodge Municipal Band, and continued his publishing from there. King was a prolific composer, writing over 300 works for band, including 188 marches. He composed mainly for larger bands up to 1940, then after that time primarily for school bands. The Neddermeyer Triumphal March was composed in 1911 as a tribute to his mentor, Fred Neddermeyer, and was published by Barnhouse. This new edition from Richard W. Sargeant Jr. retains King's original orchestration from the first edition (woodwinds, including E-flat and B-flat bass clarinet, SATB saxophones, brass, snare drum, cymbals, bass drum) in an easy-to-read format which is conveniently sized as either a study or performance score.
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!
Giulio Cesare Brancaccio was a Neapolitan nobleman with long practical experience of military life, first in the service of Charles V and later as both soldier and courtier in France and then at the court of Alfonso II d'Este at Ferrara. He was also a virtuoso bass singer whose performances were praised by both Tasso and Guarini - he was even for a while the only male member of the famous Ferrarese court Concerto delle dame, who established a legendary reputation during the 1580s. Richard Wistreich examines Brancaccio's life in detail and from this it becomes possible to consider the mental and social world of a warrior and courtier with musical skills in a broader context. A wide-ranging study of bass singing in sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century Italy provides a contextual basis from which to consider Brancaccio's reputation as a performer. Wistreich illustrates the use of music in the process of 'self-fashioning' and the role of performance of all kinds in the construction of male noble identity within court culture, including the nature and currency of honour, chivalric virtÃ¹ and sixteenth-century notions of gender and virility in relation to musical performance. This fascinating examination of Brancaccio's social world significantly expands our understanding of noble culture in both France and Italy during the sixteenth century, and the place of music-making within it.
