Francesco Giuseppe, Imperatore d'Austria e Re d'Ungheria, abbraccia con il suo regno uno dei periodi più ricchi d'eventi della storia europea. Nella sua lunghissima vita furono molti gli eventi tragici a cui dovette assistere: …
Alan will share how just through changing the way you ask for something, you can get things to go in your favour! n both our professional and personal lives, we all too often have difficult subjects to broach, uncomfortable requests to make. We struggle to find the right words, the appropriate formula which will allow us to do so in a way that’s comfortable for us and comfortable for the other person – and so instead we put the conversation off, despite knowing that if we don’t ask for what we want, we almost certainly won’t get it.
This generous 16-song collection provides a comprehensive overview of Robert Palmer's many fine songs, from his early work as an eclectic white soul singer working in a number of styles, to his reign as MTV icon and rock's most sophisticated dresser.
With Jess Roden on vocals and a couple of Toytown psych excursions, in ‘Mr. Job’ and ‘Toyland’, under the belt they released Outward Bown and a self-titled album before Roden quit. The vocals for the latter were re-recorded by the late Robert Palmer, he of ‘Addicted to Love’ success, who went on to pull exactly the same stroke as Roden for the next album, quitting the band just prior to its release. Gordon Neville was recruited to overdub Palmer’s vocals and, now simply calling themselves Alan Bown, 1970′s Listen was the result.
Trilogy is the third studio album by the English progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in July 1972 on Island Records. Trilogy increased ELP's worldwide popularity, and included "Hoedown", an arrangement of the Aaron Copland composition, which was one of their most popular songs when performing live. Lake had said this was his favourite ELP record.
Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
One thing is quite certain: ou can love this album to death or loathe it with every fiber of your being, but you can’t really ignore it. From the gorgeusly disturbing gatefold sleeve, displaying a masterpiece of Gothic artwork by Swiss cult artist R.H. Giger (of “Alien” fame), down to the unabashed self-indulgence of its musical content, “Brain Salad Surgery” is a compendium of everything progressive rock is all about, the good, the bad and the ugly. It is loud, metallic, and harsh, undeniably bombastic, though it can also be melodic and soothing – a true rollercoaster ride of an album, swinging from the beautiful, English choirboy vocals of “Jerusalem” (with wonderful lyrics courtesy of one Mr William Blake) to the all-out progressive orgy that is “Karn Evil 9”.
EMERSON LAKE & PALMER (ELP) reformed for the first time since 1998 to headline the High Voltage Festival on Sunday July 25th 2010. 2010 marked the 40th anniversary of the creation of Emerson Lake and Palmer, the band that was formed from King Crimson, The Nice and Atomic Rooster. They became the first true prog-rock Super Group and defined an era…
Recorded at Kammermusiksaal der Berliner Philharmonie, September 19, 2008. The Jazzwerkstatt was just launched when my good English friend (saxophonist) Alan Skidmore and his quartet gave a concert dedicated to the music of John Coltrane. Later we talked about Georgie Fame whom I had seen just recently in a Van Morrison BBC feature. Some days before Id heard Georgie's CD with the Danish Radio Big Band and, anyway, I knew him well for a long time. Moreover, I had to arrange a concert with (German jazz/soul singer and songwriter) Uschi Brüning. That is how it was decided to stage a concert at the (Berliner Philharmonie) Kammermusiksaal the way we hear it on this CD.
