Each of the three symphonies on this recording represents a significant milestone in Havergal Brians long musical journey, and each demonstrates the breadth of his symphonic approach. No. 8 was the first of Brians symphonies to be performed and is one of his most gripping and unpredictable, full of sonic invention. Behind the more apparently genial and expansive No. 21 lies profound emotional complexity, while No. 26 embodies elements of a divertimento though it retains disquieting outbursts. Gramophone wrote of the previous Brian recording by these forces (8.573408): The New Russia State Symphony Orchestra do the music proud. This release completes the commercial recording of all 32 of Brians symphonies on Naxos and Marco Polo.

By no means a bad album, Walker's major-label debut just wasn't quite as terrific as what directly preceded it. The studio atmosphere seems a bit slicker than before, and the songs are in several cases considerably longer than they need to be (generally in the five- to seven-minute range). A reworking of Howlin' Wolf's "Shake for Me" is the only familiar entry.

One of the most enigmatic figures in rock history, Scott Walker was known as Scotty Engel when he cut obscure flop records in the late '50s and early '60s in the teen idol vein. He then hooked up with John Maus and Gary Leeds to form the Walker Brothers. They weren't named Walker, they weren't brothers, and they weren't English, but they nevertheless became a part of the British Invasion after moving to the U.K. in 1965. They enjoyed a couple of years of massive success there (and a couple of hits in the U.S.) in a Righteous Brothers vein. As their full-throated lead singer and principal songwriter, Walker was the dominant artistic force in the group, who split in 1967. While remaining virtually unknown in his homeland, Walker launched a hugely successful solo career in Britain with a unique blend of orchestrated, almost MOR arrangements with idiosyncratic and morose lyrics. At the height of psychedelia, Walker openly looked to crooners like Sinatra, Jack Jones, and Tony Bennett for inspiration, and to Jacques Brel for much of his material. None of those balladeers, however, would have sung about the oddball subjects – prostitutes, transvestites, suicidal brooders, plagues, and Joseph Stalin – that populated Walker's songs.

Duke Robillard pays homage to T-Bone Walker with this collection of swing, big band and blues songs. The bubbly and bouncy "Lonesome Woman Blues" has a be-bop Count Basie feeling as his supporting players are given brief solos to shine, particularly the horn section. There is far more substance and style to this approach than a rehashed run-through à la Brian Setzer. This fluidity continues, albeit a bit slower in tempo with the swinging "T-Bone Shuffle" which carries the same head-bobbing groove. Here the horns lead the way but Robillard makes his presence felt on guitar near the homestretch, and throughout the stellar "Pony Tail." The barroom blues and drum brushes on "Love Is a Gamble" takes things down to a creepy crawl, bringing to mind Dr. John or Delbert McClinton. An early favorite has to be the rousing and toe-tapping "Alimony Blues," an indication that Robillard wants to pay tribute in the right way by nailing each song beautifully.

Brian Greene - L'universo elegante. Superstringhe, dimensioni nascoste e la ricerca della teoria ultima
Italian | 2018 | 377 pages | ASIN: B07BY7N399 | EPUB | 7 MB

Tutto quanto di meraviglioso avviene nell'universo è il risultato delle vibrazioni di singole unità, ultramicroscopiche stringhe nascoste nella profondità della materia. I "modi di vibrazione", le "note" intonate da queste stringhe, determinano la costituzione intima della materia, come corde di violino che eseguono una sinfonia cosmica ordinata e armoniosa. In questo libro, Brian Greene ci narra la storia di una straordinaria avventura, parlandone da protagonista e trasmettendoci tutto l'entusiasmo della scoperta scientifica. La rivoluzionaria visione dell'universo che emerge dal suo racconto prevede dimensioni nascoste e arrotolate nelle pieghe dello spazio, buchi neri che si trasformano in particelle elementari, discontinuità nella tessitura dello spaziotempo e universi che generano altri universi..

Non sempre l'apparente tranquillità di Duluth, la cittadina del Minnesota immersa nella nebbia in cui il detective Jonathan Stride ha vissuto tutta la sua vita, corrisponde alla realtà. Specie nel giorno più atteso, quello della maratona cittadina, che riserva sempre qualche sorpresa. Ci sono più nubi del previsto, quella mattina piovosa di giugno in cui la folla si raduna per guardare i maratoneti esausti che tagliano il traguardo. Anche Stride è tra loro, in attesa del passaggio di sua moglie, Serena, tra i corridori. Ma lui è un poliziotto, e sa bene che un'occasione come questa non è fatta per rilassarsi. E non solo perché tutti gli abitanti della cittadina sulle rive del Lago Superiore sono in strada. C'è anche Dawn Basch a correre la maratona di Duluth: una donna che deve la sua enorme popolarità alle idee razziste e islamofobe di cui da tempo si è fatta portavoce, sfruttando i media per la sua propaganda demagogica..
