Of course, Tony Bennett never was "plugged in," so the concept here is redundant, but what the hell. It's been a while since a Tony Bennett live album, and he's always terrific in concert. Certainly, he is here, singing 22 pop standards, including many of his hits and many other songs he's made his own. Elvis Costello and k.d. lang drop by, but they're feeding off Bennett's energy and star power, not the other way around. The album may be part of a successful marketing plan, but forget that and revel in the singing of a masterful song interpreter still, after 40 years, at the top of his game.

Mancava un po’ a tutti, l’intrattabile Miss Shepherd. Ai moltissimi lettori della "Signora nel furgone", naturalmente. Ma soprattutto al suo riluttante e devoto biografo, Alan Bennett, che come si poteva immaginare ha colto al volo la proposta del regista Nicholas Hytner: scrivere un film che avrebbe visto Maggie Smith nel ruolo della protagonista. Dal lavoro sul film è nato poi questo libro, che oltre al testo originale e alla sceneggiatura contiene uno scritto introduttivo di pungente sincerità dove per la prima volta Bennett, anche grazie a nuove pagine di diario, racconta fino in fondo la singolare relazione che per quindici anni lo ha legato al più eccentrico dei suoi personaggi, svelando a uno a uno, con nostro irrefrenabile divertimento, i lati più curiosi dello strano mestiere che, senza quasi volerlo, ha finito per fare – più o meno meglio di chiunque altro.

Alun Francis is one of the most respected conductors on the international scene, and is particularly admired for his efforts in bringing international recognition to several great tonal symphonists active in the post-World War II years, and for other efforts on behalf of 20th century music. His "native" instrument is the French horn. He continued his studies on that instrument and took conducting while attending the Royal Manchester College of Music from 1960 to 1963.

Hej America! Today is a bit of a special day here in Grouchland. Why you ask? Well, today’s review is of an album of songs, most of which were composed solely by one of my favorite musicians, Gar Francis. For those who do not know, Gar is a wizard of musical creativity. Over the years I have heard many songs from Gar’s colossal body of work and I can honestly say I have not heard anything by Gar that I disliked. This is an album of songs composed either solely by Gar or in collaboration with other talented musicians. This album. at least in my opinion, further solidifies Gar’s position among other behind-the-scene greats such as Bob Ezrin and Mutt Lang.

Cet essai propose une critique du discours militariste pour qui « la guerre, c’est la paix ». Dans ce plaidoyer à la fois viscéral et documenté contre la guerre, l’auteur brosse un portrait des lignes de force qui se dessinent de la Guerre froide à la Guerre au terrorisme, des manifestations de Seattle à celles du mouvement pour la paix. …
