As long as you're living yours : the music of Keith Jarrett by Keith Jarrett( Recording )

6 editions published in 2000 in Undetermined and English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When an artist is feted as Keith Jarrett is on this tribute, it's usually thanks to compositional contributions that have enriched the jazz firmament. Jarrett's contributions are arguably more through force of personality and prodigious piano artistry than through his compositional output. That aside, producer Milan Simich delivers this 13-tune set as an eclectic tribute to Jarrett's writing. Reminiscent of Hal Willner's That's the Way I Feel Now tribute to Thelonious Monk and Meditations on Mingus, Simich has assembled a cast ranging from pop artist Bruce Hornsby, whose piano chops enliven the New Orleans second-line opener "Backhand," to the tender duo of violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and electric pianist Bob James on the understated "Book of Ways #9." Also notable are saxophonist Jimmy Greene and programmer Lord Jamar's minimalist take on "The Cure." Jarrett's oeuvre ranges from gospel pastiche to classical romance to a decided Ornette Coleman influence. The latter influence drives "Innocence," featuring George Garzone on tenor sax, and "Shades of Jazz", with Joe Lovano and Tom Harrell recalling Ornette and Don Cherry's spirited front line. Departures include Chucho Valdes's sprawling Cuban chops on "U Dance" and a rumbero treatment of Jarrett's "So Tender" from Nueva Rumba. The only solo track is a gentle lament from D.D. Jackson. --Willard Jenkins

Follows guitarist Andy Summers journey from his early days in the psychedelic '60s music scene, when he played with the Animals, to chance encounters with drummer Stewart Copeland and bassist Sting, which led to the formation of a punk trio, the Police. During the band's phenomenal rise and its dissolution at the height of their popularity in the mid-80s, Summers captured history with his candid photographs. Utilizing rare archival footage and insights from the guitarist's side of the stage, the film brings together past and present as the band members reunite, more than two decades later, for a global reunion tour in 2007

I'll be watching you : inside The Police, 1980-83 by Andy Summers( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and German and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early 1980s, The Police went on tour accompanied by a photographer who documented the band behind the scenes in a series of candid and striking black and white photos. This talented photographer also happened to be the band's guitarist, Andy Summers. Yes, it's true - the man responsible for the guitar lick from "Every Breath You Take" was not only the backbone of one of the most popular bands of all time, he also possessed a visual gift for composition and mood that allowed him to capture the spirit of The Police better than anyone else could have. This book, somewhere between photojournalism and an illustrated diary, follows The Police around the globe between 1980 and 1983. From the American West to Australia to Japan, Summers recorded not only the band members rehearsing and partying - the proverbial sex, drugs, and rock and roll - he also photographed fans, landscapes, still lifes, and passersby in a reportage style reminiscent of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank. Containing over 600 photos and filled with diary-style entries, "I'll Be Watching You" is a sumptuous volume beating with musical energy, nostalgia, and atmospheric beauty. It is a must for photo buffs and Police fans alike. It contains over 600 photographs personally selected from the photographer's archive of over 25,000 thousand negatives (1980-83). Most photos are previously unpublished, and many of them have never even been printed prior to this project. Highlights include: rehearsals and recording sessions with band-mates; Sting and Stewart Copeland; exclusive back-stage and on-stage footage from concerts including Plaza de Toros (Barcelona, 1980), Budokan (Tokyo, 1981), Wembley Stadium (London, 1981), and Shea Stadium (New York, 1983); inside the tour busses, limousines, helicopters, private planes, parties, and hotel rooms; behind the scenes on music video shoots, at press conferences, and in-store appearances; life on the road with other bands including The Go-Go's, XTC, and The B-52's; and rain-soaked train windows, trashed hotel rooms, island retreats, over-capacity stadiums, and thousands of screaming, singing, sobbing, fans."--Publisher's description

Als The Police 1977 mit ihrem Debut-Album <<Outlandos d'Amour>> aufhorchen liessen, fielen sie im damaligen Trend zunächst in die Schublade Punk-Rock. Zwar hatten ihre Musik und die ersten Hits <<Roxanne>> und <<So lonely>> in der Tat eine nervöse und kantige Rauheit, doch waren Sänger und Bassist Sting, Gitarrist Andy Summers und Schlagzeuger Stewart Copeland damals bereits sehr viel versiertere Musiker als die meisten ihrer Punk-Kollegen. Zum einen hatten sie ein Flair für knackige Pop-Songs, zum andern zunehmend Lust auf vertrackte Rhythmen - allem voran auf Reggae. -- <<Reggatta de Blanc>> - der Titel ihres zweiten Albums - meinte in Pseudo-Französisch genau das: weisser Reggae - aber unüberhörbar inspiriert von Bob Marley und seinen Wailers. Dank ihrer ersten Non-Stop-Tournee standen The Police vor den Aufnahmen zu <<Reggatta de Blanc>> am idealen Schnittpunkt von Perfektion und ungestümer Kraft. -- Mit <<Message in a Bottle>> und <<Walking on the Moon>> feierten sie in England ihre ersten beiden Nummer eins Hits. Und schafften sich als super-coole, wasserstoff-blondierte Jungs die Basis für den Super-Star-Durchbruch auch in den USA mit dem Album <<Zenyatta Mondatta>> im Jahr darauf. (Quelle:, 16.10.2008)
