Pianist Larry Vuckovich revisits his landmark 1980 recording on this combined reissue and new release. Prefiguring the much-lauded work of Dave Douglas and the Tiny Bell Trio, guitarist Brad Shepik, and even John Zorn, the Yugoslavian-born Vuckovich combines the ethnic melodies and rhythms from his native Balkans with modal jazz. Never as avant-garde as his contemporaries, Vuckovich nonetheless pushes the boundaries of both jazz and folk styles. The original tracks featured the brilliant vibe playing of Bobby Hutcherson, who unfortunately does not reprise his role on the four new pieces.

Through the Embers of Chaos: Balkan Journeys

Through the Embers of Chaos: Balkan Journeys by Dervla Murphy
English | October 30th, 2016 | ASIN: B0721QVTHH, ISBN: 0719562325, 0719565103 | 539 pages | EPUB | 1.63 MB

As Dervla Murphy crisscrossed the Balkans in a series of bicycle journeys towards the beginning and end of the 1990s, she recorded the griefs and confusions of the ordinary people, many of whom had showed extraordinary courage and resilience during that terrible ‘decade of decay’ and whose voices were so little heard during the conflict.

MR ŽARKO was born in the city of Čačak in the heartland of Serbia, just a stone’s throw away from the small village which is famous for hosting the legendary “Guca Trumpet Festival”. In the Balkans, people from the Čačak area enjoy a peculiar reputation, partly explained by MR ŽARKO as “folkloristical madness”: a very special form of insanity which he imported to Berlin several years ago. There the Serbs unique musical blend proved a hit with the club crowds and festivalgoers.

A really cool pairing of two relatively obscure and always overlooked early- to mid-'60s LPs by Jerry Lee Lewis that, respectively, capture him as a country crooner (and quite a good one) and a high-energy country-rocker with a bluesy edge. The original albums never sold any significant numbers to speak of, with the result that the material will essentially be new to all but the most hardcore fans. None of it is bad and a large portion of it is not only good but impressive, showing some sides to Lewis' talent that weren't always obvious amid the rippling ivories of the Sun Records hits.

Newsprint Metropolis: City Papers and the Making of Modern Americans (Historical Studies of Urban America) by Julia Guarneri
English | November 16th, 2017 | ASIN: B075VS7CFR, ISBN: 022634133X | 368 pages | EPUB | 15.19 MB

At the close of the nineteenth century, new printing and paper technologies fueled an expansion of the newspaper business. Newspapers soon saturated the United States, especially its cities, which were often home to more than a dozen dailies apiece. Using New York, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, and Chicago as case studies, Julia Guarneri shows how city papers became active agents in creating metropolitan spaces and distinctive urban cultures.
