After stopping at that station we did stop 5 more times, which were carrying gasoline and we could eat. We arrived to Tijuana on January 31, 2002 at 7 in the morning. Arriving at Tijuana we got out of the bus and the man who was going to cross me and someone else told us that we were going to need on a bench and wait for 20 minutes. After waiting 20 minutes, we started walking to the border line, the man was ahead of me, and the other person behind me.
Louis music scene, and in 1952 he formed the Sir John Trio with pianist and band leader Johnnie Johnson and drummer Eddie Hardy. The connection with Johnson would be a lasting one, and the influence of the pianist's boogie style would become evident in Berry's guitar playing. Berry had a knack for pleasing the crowd, and the band eventually changed its name to The Chuck Berry Trio. The band's repertoire included the blues, ballads, and a number of "black hillbilly" songs that jokingly parodied the country music popular to the city's white audiences. While the trio's hillbilly songs initially provoked laughter, they became popular dance tunes among the predominantly black club-goers.
Although the main intention of the film “The Soloist” was to tell the tragic story of a musically talented and smart man named Nathaniel Ayers, the film also succeeded in bringing forth the controversy that is the amount of people with mental illnesses that go untreated and/ or end up living on the streets. Nathaniel was an undoubtedly talented young man when it came to playing the cello, as he was accepted into Julliard, a prestigious institution for the study and exploration of musical abilities. The underlying complication of the film is that we regularly see people with mental illnesses receiving little to no treatment or support from the community, leaving the responsibility to the individuals and their families. Given the complications
These hits were known as “China Boy”, “Sugar”, “Nobody’s Sweetheart”, and “Liza”. His perfection doesn’t stop, he wanted to aid other talent on stage while making his drumming role within the band. This man is also coined as the father of the modern drum set. Gene made friends with H.H. Slingerland who owned a drumming company at the time.
"I 'm not too sure what the name of the song was that he was playing when I came in, but whatever it was, he was really stinking it up. He was putting all these dumb, show-offy ripples in the high notes, and a lot of other very tricky stuff that gives me a pain in the ass." (Salinger 84). One of the many purposes musicians serve, is to entertain people. Ernie, a great pianist as I understand, was doing just that.
So you’ve got to listen. You got to find a way to listen” (114). Sonny’s brother finally listen to him with full attention because he is seeing how happy Sonny is when he plays piano in the nightclub. One of the reasons the narrator realizes why Sonny loves playing music was when he heard Sonny’s performance from other people and notices this, when Creole tells that the blues gave a “tale of how we suffer, and how we are delighted, and how we may triumph is never new, it always must be heard. There isn't any other tale to tell, it's the only light we've got in all this darkness” (117).
As a young boy he played in bars and nightclubs illegally but he says his music always kept him on the straight and narrow and he is admired by many for his strong drive, motivation and willingness to put in the effort to make himself big and his name heard. He is also currently 73 and happily married.
Helping others using his knowledge, and also listening to others when they need someone to talk to is what makes Slim a good person. Being there for people, such as Candy and George, is one of the very many good aspects of Slim. He is so quiet and reserved, but at the same time, his words speak louder than others. Additionally, throughout the story, Slim is the one person that the characters go to for advice in tough situations. For example,when Lennie smashed Curley’s hand, it was Slim who didn’t get both George and Lennie fired.
I believe the greatest one is the Jazz funeral because this isn’t a boring funeral, like most funerals are just burying the body this one actually more fun and unique then all the other ones and I’m pretty sure everyone is probably doing this one since the jazz funeral is the best one. It’s unique and enjoyable because a jazz marching band leads the coffin and everyone else, while playing gloomy music, but when they finish burying the coffin, they play cheerful upbeat music and everyone even starts dancing, they all dance and share stories of their dead loved one. I like this one and everyone should too because even though this is not as weird as some other ones, it’s not that lame or boring, it’s pretty calm.
Practicing cello allows me to become a better musician, but moreso a responsible and driven individual. It continuously reminds me that the most worthwhile achievements require hard work. Jazz is one of those achievements. Through becoming a technical and theory-driven classical musician performing in music competitions and in my region’s youth symphonies, I stumbled across jazz one day and was immediately drawn toward its intricate chord progressions and complex improvisations. A year later I performed for residents of a nursing home.
Although my favorite piece was MacArthur Park, I thought the most striking moment of the entire concert was when the lead trumpet from Brazoswood High School’s AM Jazz Band moved to the front of the stage and played alongside Bergeron during Bright Moments—matching him almost pitch for pitch. In summary, it is easy to see why the Brazoswood/Brazosport high schools claim to have the best jazz programs in the area. In my opinion, these high school bands matched or surpassed some smaller college bands’ levels of
The chord progression of the piano accompanied the vocal which drifted smoothly up and down with the change of emotion, while the percussion and string sections were presented softly in the background. Remarkably, the leading position vocal in this song also illustrated the change of focus from band to vocalist in the late Swing era. Secondly, Staryhorn’s work often contained greater tenderness. As the saying of bassist Aaron Bell, a one time Ellingtonian, “There’s so much more sensitivity and complexity in Strayhorn’s composition than Ellington’s”. The lyrics of “Lush Life” demonstrated the born sensitivity of the song writer.
Although Webb had already hired another singer for his band (Charlie Linton), he too was impressed by Ella’s talent. Because of this, and despite her “gawky and unkempt” appearance, he gave her the opportunity to sing with his band at a dance at Yale University as a test run. Webb was quoted for saying that “if the kids like her, she stays”. She was a raging success and true to his promise, Chick hired Ella to travel with the band. She recorded “Love and Kisses” with the band in 1935 and was soon a regular artist at the Savoy, one of Harlem’s hottest nightclubs.
In the documentary during the Championship, Akron Shooting Stars vs. the California All Stars in eighth grade Little Dru was about 4’6 and short. People would pick on him because he was shorter than others. However, he learned that you don 't have to be the same as other people do the same as them. When people would pick on him and call him names, it wouldn’t bother him because he knew that they were just trying to make him feel bad and then it would make him depressed or upset at the game, yet Little Dru did not let it bother him. LeBron James and the players learned a lot of lessons during their basketball career.
