            Essential Folk Songs, Spirituals and Blues: - With a Touch of Jazz, for Solo Piano (Paperback)

            Among the reasons for the instant appeal and durability of folk songs, spirituals and blues are their melodic, harmonic and rhythmic simplicity and accessibility. They are passed down by oral tradition from generation to generation, often undergoing changes in the process. The pr...ovenance of such songs is often not known. However, some such songs of similar character may sometimes be attributed to specific known composers. (Examples of the latter include such well known gems as Woody Guthrie's This Land Is Your Land, Bob Dylan's Blowin' in the Wind, and Pete Seeger's If I Had a Hammer, among several others.) Each folk song and spiritual in this collection is imbued with a cultural heritage that reflects its roots. At the same time, one cannot fail to notice various musical fingerprints added by later musicians over the years. Having deep feelings in my heart for this material and having been inspired by my own background in jazz, jazz improvisation and jazz education, I herewith offer my own 21st century piano solo arrangements of these folk and spiritual classics, plus two original blues pieces, all written at the intermediate level with a tasteful touch of jazz. Additionally, a template is provided for students to create their own blues compositions, as well as suggested guidelines for blues improvisation. I am the author of over 100 published solo piano books in the United States, 38 in Japan, and 2 in the former Soviet Union. Of all of them, I am especially proud of my early and intermediate level books such as Razzle Dazzle, Color Me Jazz books 1 and 2, Ole! and Fiesta! (both books consisting of original Latin American songs), Crash Course in Chords (a foundation theory/performance workbook), and my early-advanced level Jazz Piano Scales and Exercises.

            'If I were pressed to describe my style, I'd have to say it is called reality. No matter how stylized it gets, underneath it's real.' Ridley Scott Illustrated with images as iconic as they are stunning and including the author's first-hand experiences on set and interviewing the ...great director, this magnificent book charts the extraordinary journey of Britain's greatest living director. Telling the stories behind Alien and Blade Runner, Gladiator and Black Hawk Down, and many more, it also goes in search of the themes and motifs that unite such different films, and the methods and madness of Scott's approach to his medium. This is the story of a director who has never been less than stubbornly, brilliantly, unforgettably his own man.

            Offering a roadmap for practising verbatim theatre (plays created from oral histories), this book outlines theatre processes through the lens of oral history and draws upon oral history scholarship to bring best practices from that discipline to theatre practitioners. The book op...ens with an overview of oral history and verbatim theatre, considering the ways in which existing oral history debates can inform verbatim theatre processes and highlights necessary ethical considerations within each field, which are especially prevalent when working with narrators from marginalised communities. It provides a step-by-step guide to creating plays from interviews and contains practical guidance for determining the scope of a theatre project: identifying narrators and conducting interviews, developing a script from excerpts of interview transcripts, and outlining a variety of ways to create verbatim theatre productions. By bringing together this explicit discussion of oral history in relationship to theatre based on personal testimonies, the reader gains insight into each field and the close relationship between the two. Supported by international case studies that cover a wide range of working methods and productions, including The Laramie Project and Parramatta Girls, this is the perfect guide for oral historians producing dramatic representations of the material they have sourced through interviews, and for writers creating professional theatre productions, community projects or student plays.

            Photography is an art, a form of expression, but more importantly, it is a way to store a glimpse of a moment. Through the lens of a camera takes on photography from a different perspective. It shows places, things, and nature as moments so these can be kept, viewed, and displaye...d as a piece of art itself.

            There is no reasoning with the suppressed psychic matherial when it escapes, releases itself from the prisons of our ignorance, prudery, ego. There is no reasoning with mass hysteria, that is a sign of psychic energy escaping prison. The rest of what I want to communicate is visu...al. See what it does to you. As all my art it is also a pure imprint of an unconsciousness manifested in dreams and feelings and formulated by an artist in me for you.
