Louis Armstrong shaping scat singing to make it achieve posterity Louis Armstrong (1901-1971) is surely one of the most famous and incredible jazz singer and trumpet player. He influenced widely, and still does, jazz music. But there is something that only jazz specialists or some aficionados know: he actually reinvented a brand new genre of vocal jazz, the scat singing.
Graduate Recital Program Notes: Charles Tomlinson Griffes, Poem for Flute and Orchestra Charles Griffes (1884-1920) was the director of music at the Hackley School in Tarrytown, NY from 1907–1920. He studied piano at a young age, to continue his education he moved to Berlin, where he studied piano, composition, and counterpoint at the Stern Conservatory. Griffes’s early compositions were influenced to some degree by German Romanticism, especially German Lieder. He never reached atonality in his music-making, however, at the end of his career he adopted an abstract phase that many critics among them Paul Rosenfeld, and Nicolas Slonimsky acknowledged to be impressionist and orientalist.
The Latin American composer, I choose to write about is Carlos Santana. Carlos Augusto Alyes Santana, was born on July 20,1947 in Autlan de Navarro, Jalisco, Mexico. At age five he learned to play the violin from his father, Jose Santana, who is a professional mariachi violinist. But Carlos Santana switched to guitar when he was eight years old, when his family moved to Tijuana, Mexico. When Santana was approaching his teenage years in the late fifties, he was playing shows with different bands around the Tijuana strip in clubs and bars.
In 1936, Armstrong became the first African American to be featured in a Hollywood movie and to write an autobiography. Also, in 1937 he was the first African American to be on a sponsored radio broadcast. Moreover, he performed at hotels that didn't allow African Americans to stay, and he had contracts that no other African American had in the 1930s (Source A). Armstrong brought together scat singing, blues, and his trumpet and cornet to make a modern jazz. In his lifetime, Armstrong made thousands or records and inspired many to follow their dreams.
Trumpeters Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis became two of the most inspiring American jazz musicians of all time by accessing very differently to their art. In the analysis an album from each artist, I choose “What A Wonderful World” of Louis Armstrong and “Kind of Blue” of Miles Davis. Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971) was the most influential performer to affect a lot of Jazz musicians. He influenced the whole jazz population with his amazing voice and energetic trumpet. And he played a great role in the modernization of jazz.
Niccolò was enthusiastic about it and invited me to join his composition class that I then attended for the next three years until his untimely death. Listening to music together before knowing each other through words was the first step towards the spiritual dimension of his teaching and the revelation of an enigma – when Time controls Space there are no human barriers. The same happened when I first met another of my great maestros, Krzysztof Penderecki, during a rehearsal of his ‘Passacaglia-Allegro Moderato’ in Krakow. I remember that afterwards, when we were reminiscing about Niccolò, Penderecki was moved by his handwritten music note that I have
For example, in 1924, Armstrong was dismissed by his bandleader Fletcher Henderson when he asked to sing on a record, and this negative reaction was seen through most of his early career. He had an untrained voice, one with a limited range and a gravelly quality, and was not recognized as a singer until long after establishing himself as an instrumentalist; ironically, today, he is one of the central singers in pop and jazz history with many well-known singers molding their style after his.
Similarly, "The Metamorphasis" does not share the time of the story. To give a guess, 1915 is the year author Franz Kafka created Metamorphosis. " A&P" is about five miles from a beach north of Boston. "The Metamorphasis" does not hint at its place. There are no given indications of where these stories take place.
The Five People You Meet in Heaven is a novel by Mitch Albom. The novel is about a maintenance man named Eddie and his journey in life and death. Mitchell David “Mitch” Albom was born to a middle class suburban family. He attended Brandeis University wherein he earned a bachelor’s degree, majoring in sociology. His love for music shone through and after he graduated, he worked as a performer for several years in Europe and America.
Amanda felt that she never tried to compose music because of the pressure to learn how to play an instrument: “we didn’t enjoy it: I think it was just forced on us that none of us ever picked it [composition] up...” Two other teachers remembered siblings’ composition attempts. Deirdre recalled: “My brother kinda maybe did a bit of song-writing, but he wouldn’t be […] very professional or anything.” It seems that siblings’ composing at home did not have a clear influence on these teachers’ confidence or attitudes to teach composition in the same way Apfelstadt (1989) described the influence of siblings singing at home. Jill was the only teacher who mentioned childhood composition pursuits: “I did write my own little songs, but I think I did them with the letters not the [notes]…”
It’s safe to say that Louis will go down in history as one of the greatest in Jazz to ever live. (Tyle
Charles Christopher Parker Jr. was born on August 29, 1920, in Kansas City, Kansas. He moved with his parent to Missouri in 1927. As a teenager Charles discovered his musical talent through public school. He began playing the saxophone when he was thirteen, quitting school when he was fifteen to become a full time musician with the alto saxophone. During the years 1935-1939, Charles played in many nightclubs with other local jazz and blue bands touring Chicago and New York (Charlie Parker Biography).
He performed for the first time age 15 while he was on vacation with Ruby “Tuna Boy” Williams Belvedere Orchestra, while at the green Gables in Hot Springs, Arkansas. He also went to college at Arkansas Baptist in Little Rock. While there he majored in music and played baseball for their school team. After school he would do local gigs.
Just George Mason by himself listed 16 oppositions to the document on the back of a copy. Some objections were the lack of a bill of rights and the absence of not immediately abolishing the slave trade. 2. The founding father I picked was William Samuel Johnson born on October 7, 1727 in Stratford, CT and passed away November 14, 1819. In 1787,
