In the essay, “Paying to Play” by James Surowiecki, the author uses a particular approach in the introduction. He immediately states that the music industry “thrives on repetition” (Surowiecki 437). He even goes on to say that a song is a hit once “you’ve heard it so often that you’ll be happy never to hear it again” (Surowiecki 437). By pointing out these facts, the author engages the reader. He further appeals to the reader by giving an example of just how much a song is overplayed, when he highlights how frequently the radio station, WQZQ played “Don’t Tell Me” by Avril Lavigne.
Tait’s article was very humorous and a much more inspiring read that anyone could relate to. He has a background in music and business so I’m sure the audience was intended for a musically oriented person just by the references he uses. The research found in Check your guts was collected at “Operation: Start Up & Grow” business conference held in New York. One of the main similarities that is drawn from both pieces of writing is the common theme that hard work is essential in order to achieve desired results in life and business. This myth that your guaranteed or entitled to success when that’s really not the case.
He released this track on his album called weekend in L. A. The song has been redone by many other artist that have added their own perspective and stylistic characteristics. The George Benson rendition is the greatest having hit #7 on the billboard hot 100 and #2 on the Soul charts. The vocal range he uses in this song is extraordinary and because of the fact that it has a rolling bass line it makes it easy for one to scat and/or improvise. This allows one to explore their vocal range in the song in a both free yet controlled way.
11. I put the number one as a minimum and twelve as a maximum in a random number generator then numbered each composer one through twelve then clicked generate and it decided to give me this composer. I am glad though because the more I listened to Henry Purcell the more I enjoy his music whether it is secular or sacred it kept me interested and wanting to listen to more. I began to feel the music actually change my emotions more than I would 've liked which will probably have me listening to his music more for maybe just random laying back
The band played an assortment of blues and jazz songs, from classic to modern. While not all songs were identified, a handful were recognizable. The band covered “You Are So Beautiful,” original recorded in 1974 and written by Billy Preston and Bruce Fisher, and Dennis Wilson, as well as a cover of “Ain’t Nobody,” a 1983 song recorded by the band “Rufus” and Chaka Khan. Overall, this performance was extremely enjoyable. Each member was able to masterfully play their instrument and as a band they worked well together.
After the narrator goes with Sonny to the Jazz club, he meets Sonny’s friends and sees how they appreciate him and his music in a way he never did. He then begins to see the importance of music to his brother and makes a discovery about himself and Sonny. He listens to Sonny play and is delighted and starts to accept his brothers wanting to be a musician. The narrator realizes he was wrong to try and make Sonny change and he sees the power of Sonny’s blues as he is playing. The acceptance over Sonny’s dream not only strengthened their relationship, but also helped them gain a better understanding of each other.
His other influence was he helped segregate music he did that with his fame telling people just because your skin is different doesn’t mean you don’t matter That was the belief he had and how it changed the world.

They both changed the world for the better and came from humble beginnings. Frank changing the way music is looked at and Elvis changing how music is
They really did think he has unique voices with his music, especially the rhythm in his voices. Jimi Hendrix desires to be better every day, and he very rarely satisfied with his work. He really put himself into the music, his friends around him often see him with his guitar all the time. They never see Jimi Hendrix without his guitar in hands. Everywhere he went, he has a guitar with him, and he was very happy when he playing his music.
Halfway through this performance, I started to notice the repetition of both jazz bands, and how all of the songs sounded very similar to me. I’m sure if I had more experience with music and more particularly jazz music, I would be able to identify differences much easier. This band played “It Don’t Mean A Thing,” “Cherokee,” “In A Mellow Tone,” and “Recordame.” Like the first band, this band also introduced their next songs and also included when they modified the original versions. My favorite performance of the night was the last song “Recordame.” The band noted that they modified this song, and right away I had a good idea of one of the biggest modifications when the drummer got up and grabbed an electric drum pad and set it next to his drum set. The electric drum produced an original sound that I had not heard yet that night.

Tyler and Josh Dun, the creators of the music and members of the band Twenty-One Pilots, capture the hearts of so many fans with their ever evolving music. What other group can captivate people who usually listen to Rap, Boy Bands, Techno, Rock, Pop, Alternative, or Indie lovers like me. Their sound pulls in these people, and many more. Not only does their sound control people 's mind and thoughts but their lyrics find a way of digging into you, in a good way. They sing about a lot of heavy subjects without it sounding heavy.
Clark Terry’s music deeply moved numerous jazz legends like Byron Stripling, who once said, “You don’t have to be a jazz fan. That’s really important with Clark Terry. You don’t have to be a jazz fan to like and to love his music because it invites you into it. You are invited in not only with virtuosic and bluesy sense, but also with humor. He
Although the song is challenging the dominant religion, it also gave way to the audience reevaluating their everyday life. This redefinition of society, as Rosenthal and Flacks states, can either be as a result of a needed push to change society or a change that is occurring in society. “Get up, Stand up” is just on example of numerous songs that can be applied to the authors main question which is “how music actually serves the various functions that have been claimed for it and to begin to determine how the function and effects of music vary depending on social and historical contexts” (Rosenthal and Flacks
(Jazz Standards.com) The 1920’s centered around these tunes more than others, but that doesn’t mean they were hated they just weren’t as popular; but despite the rankings the pieces affected the entertainment in the 20’s for the best.
