Benny Lewis - Il parlalingue. Il metodo universale per parlare fluentemente qualunque lingua in 3 mesi

Le lingue sono fondamentali per lavorare, viaggiare, tenersi informati. Chi non ha dedicato ore di studio e impegno a lezioni ed esercizi che però si sono rivelati spesso inutili e noiosi? "Non sono portato", è l'ovvia conclusione, e rinunciamo. Ne era convinto anche Benny Lewis, dopo sei mesi sprecati nel tentativo di imparare lo spagnolo. Ma anziché arrendersi, ha deciso di cambiare approccio: basta regole a memoria, meglio partire dalla conversazione. Oggi conosce una decina di idiomi ed è diventato un vero punto di riferimento per l'apprendimento linguistico a livello mondiale. E, cosa ancora più straordinaria, ha dimostrato che si può imparare una lingua in tre mesi, autonomamente, da casa, in poco tempo e a costo zero..

The Jazztet had been in existence for two years when they recorded what would be their final LPs, Here and Now and Another Git Together. The personnel, other than the two co-leaders, flugelhornist Art Farmer and tenor-saxophonist Benny Golson, had completely changed since 1960 but the group sound was the same. The 1962 version of the Jazztet included trombonist Grachan Moncur III, pianist Harold Mabern, bassist Herbie Lewis, and drummer Roy McCurdy. It is remarkable to think that this talent-filled group wasn't, for some reason, snapped up to record even more albums together. Highlights of their excellent out-of-print LP include Ray Bryant's "Tonk," "Whisper Not," "Just in Time," and Thelonious Monk's "Ruby My Dear." A classic if short-lived hard bop group.

Appearing with Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, and Harry James during the late '30s and early '40s, Helen Forrest became one of the most popular swing era singers – even vocal authority Mel Tormé named her his favorite, male or female. Though her voice wasn't quite as clear as Doris Day's, Forrest was an excellent interpreter, and her sweet vocals proved a solid foil for the Benny Goodman band during 1940 and half of 1941. Collectors' Choice compiled her complete appearances with Goodman on three discs, though they're hardly overloaded at 55 tracks total. The package makes for a lot of great material, including her biggest hits while there, "How High the Moon" and "I Can't Love You Any More (Any More Than I Do)," the latter recorded with top swing guitarist Charlie Christian. Also featured is a previously unreleased track featuring Goodman's own competent vocal (reminiscent of Hoagy Carmichael) on "Jenny."

Benny Carter's MusicMasters catalogue turned up some fine sessions in which colleagues included Clark Terry, Hank Jones, and Doc Cheatham, among a raft of musicians - for the stellar singers, see the end of this review. The recordings, made in various locations, span the years 1990-95 and reveal the altoist seemingly unruffled by the reach of Time, still spinning some sublime and harmonically darting lines as if for the first time.

Art Farmer-Benny Golson Jazztet was a talent-studded little band, among the finest groups of its time (1959-1962), able and willing to try anything—notice the sextet’s exuberant romping on these two albums “Here and Now,” and “Another Git Together”—recorded in 1962. They feature only the co-leaders of the original band, but the replacements—trombonist Grachan Moncur III and a Harold Mabern Herbie Lewis—Roy McCurdy rhythm section—maintained the pungent blend of zest, relaxation, control and creativity that characterised the Jazztet at its best.

Features 24 bit remastering and limited edition. Release Date: December 04, 2013. The idea of the Jazztet playing arrangements by John Lewis written especially for them is intriguing. According to Gene Lees' liner notes, Art Farmer first approached Lewis about writing something for the sextet, to which the composer replied that he'd rather score an entire record. Even though the Jazztet and Lewis' own group, the Modern Jazz Quartet, are dissimilar in many ways, the marriage is a successful one.

"Not a Little Girl Anymore" is a studio album by English singer Linda Lewis, first released in 1975. It was Lewis’ fourth album and it peaked at #40 in the UK album chart. The album features, along with the lighter songs such as the cover of Cat Steven’s "(Remember the Days of) The Old School Yard" and the gentle pastiche "My Grandaddy Could Reggae", more sultry numbers such as "This Time I’ll be Sweeter" and "It's in His Kiss". Her album made clear the intention of re-branding the singer, moving her towards a more adult audience.

The future "King of Swing", Benjamin David Goodman, was born on the 30th May, in Chicago, Illinois. He was the son of Jewish immigrants and grew up with 11 brothers and sisters. Benny Goodman learned to play the clarinet in a synagogue and took his first steps as a musician on the pleasure boats on the nearby Lake Michigan.
He worked for several years from the middle of the Twenties with Ben Pollack, but also played with several other bands. Goodman met the well-known music producer John Hammond in 1933, and was persuaded by Hammond to form his first big-band…
