"Is it a nightmare or an actual view of a post-apocalyptic world? Set in an industrial town in which giant machines are constantly working, spewing smoke, and making noise that is inescapable, Henry Spencer lives in a building that, like all the others, appears to be abandoned. The lights flicker on and off, he has bowls of water in his dresser drawers, and for his only diversion he watches and listens to the Lady in the Radiator sing about finding happiness in heaven. Henry has a girlfriend, Mary X, who has frequent spastic fits. Mary gives birth to Henry's child, a frightening looking mutant, which leads to the injection of all sorts of sexual imagery into the depressive and chaotic mix"--Imdb.com

Thomas Wright "Fats" Waller : performances in transcription, 1927-1943 by Fats Waller( )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2019 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The seventeen transcriptions in this volume reveal the compositional artistry and comic play of Thomas Wright "Fats" Waller (1904-43), virtuoso jazz pianist, organist, singer, bandleader, parodist, comedian, and composer in the Harlem stride tradition. Using pairs of transcriptions of the same tune, this volume explores the creative process within Waller's improvisations by demonstrating the wide variety of gesture and idea captured at the moment of recording. Alternate takes of "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," for example, show how deep the stylistic gulf between two versions of a song could become, even within the same recording session. Alternate takes of "Waiting at the End of the Road," performed on piano and on pipe organ, demonstrate Waller's ability to exploit the different expressive possibilities inherent in the two instruments. Drawn from recordings made throughout Waller's career, other pairs include a broad sampling of solo piano and pipe organ performances, popular songs, and small ensemble work: "Ain't Misbehavin'," "Gladyse," "Honeysuckle Rose," "I Ain't Got Nobody," "I'm Crazy 'Bout My Baby," and "Rusty Pail Blues." A single transcription of Waller's little-known homemade acetate of "That Does It" from his 1943 show Early to Bed completes the volume. The accompanying essay explores the nature of Waller's compositional and lyrical ingenuity, illustrated by several recently discovered manuscript sketches that offer clues to Waller's musical imagination. Serving both performers and scholars, this volume provides new insights into Waller's musical achievements." --
