Hard bop : jazz and Black music, 1955-1965 by David H Rosenthal( Book )

25 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and Japanese and held by 1,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Good-bye and other stories by Yoshihiro Tatsumi( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yoshihiro Tatsumi has assembled an unusual collage of postwar Japanese life. Once unity, order, and harmony were the cornerstones of society. Now individuals, families, and lovers find themselves imprisoned by small minds and tiny spaces. Domestic battles are the new front of a quiet war. Loneliness is pervasive, emotional detachment a necessity, and "good-bye" is the only proper response to caring. The scars of a deeply wounded nation are visible in the chaotic lives of its people: A young bride's husband is jailed on their wedding night. Faithful for four years, she confirms his suspicions and erases her virginal image the night before his release. A prostitute rids herself of the one man who truly cares for her - her father. A disabled voyeur is drawn into a strange relationship with the couple he watches

Saxon by Daniel Torres( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It takes a lot these days to wrest Rocco Vargas from his typewriter, but a mild case of exploding ceiling fans, colonial subterfuge simmering in the solar system and a sibilant drug baron caught with his robotic arm elbow deep in the cookie jar has managed to do the trick. Earth's government has coveted North Rhea - Saturn's richest moon - for too long, and now it seems the Venusian war has provided the perfect excuse for a spot of expansion. Along with a cast of Venusians, Rheamites, Wirz, robots and the reckless Kid Panama, Rocco is involved up to his eyeballs. Between a horde of drug-harvesting zombies and the unlikely reunion of the Space Kids triumvirate with the shocking appearance of the "dead" Saxon, Rocco had better get his act together if he is going to finish the next installment of "Sam Norton" before his deadline. That is, of course, if he can avoid the temptation of Krop - the universe's hottest hallucinogen and the ultimate trip!
