Sicilian Summer: A Story of Honour, Religion and the Perfect Cassata by Brian Johnston [REPOST]

Sicilian Summer: A Story of Honour, Religion and the Perfect Cassata by Brian Johnston
Allen & Unwin | 2007 | ISBN: 1741147352 | 300 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Irresistible and delicious, this multifaceted travelogue delves deep into summer in Sicily—complete with all the passion, power, politics, and pasta of the Italian island. After accepting an invitation to attend a confirmation in Sicily, author Brian Johnston naively expects little more than the chance to immerse himself in genuine southern Italian hospitality and, of course, the vibrant tastes, smells, flavors, and rituals of Sicilian food. What Johnston encounters and describes is flamboyant family drama, dangerous village politics, and eccentric local personalities—all while painting a fascinating picture of contemporary Italy.

One of the most appreciated attributes of a great artist is their ability to take a song that is already considered a classic in its original form, and successfully take it even further. While some avoid covering artists of legendary status, Brian Owens is tackling it head on in his forthcoming project, “Soul of Cash,” covering selected pages from the songbook of the late great Johnny Cash. If the project’s lead single, “Ring of Fire” is any indication, Owens may have an instant classic on his hands.

Jazz / Straight-Ahead Jazz / Trumpet

Lynch wrote three of the seven tracks, while Horace Silver, Benny Golson, Tommy Turrentine and Cole Porter penned one apiece. His trumpet sound definitely borrows from previous modern masters Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan & Bill Hardman, and the influence of Silver, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and those of the hard/post bop movement cannot be denied. The latin tinge is also prevalent on the Brazilian bossa inflected "Change Of Plan" and Silver's Afro-Cuban tinged classic "The Outlaw." These two selections serve Lynch well for future excursions away from strict mainstream jazz. A rock solid date from a promising musician whose star is on the rise.

English | January 8th, 2013 | ASIN: 4.73, ISBN: 1451610130, 1451610157 | 257 pages | EPUB | 4.73 MB

All Standing The Remarkable Story of the Jeanie Johnston, the Legendary Irish Famine Ship recounts the journeys of this famous ship, her heroic crew, and the immigrants who were ferried between Ireland and North America. Spurred by a complex web of motivations—shame, familial obligation, and sometimes even greed—more than a million people attempted to flee the Irish famine.

Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 01:15:37 | 173 MB
Label: Choir of King's College, Cambridge

Guy Johnston plays a cello made in 1714 by David Tecchler, a German-born luthier who was based in Rome. With the instrument into its fourth century, Johnston embarks on a wonderful journey that weaves in some glorious music along the way. New works by David Matthews, Mark Simpson, and Charlotte Bray sit alongside Beethoven’s “Ghost” Piano Trio, vibrantly played by Johnston’s violinist brother Magnus and pianist Tom Poster. Like Johnston, both are alumni of King’s College, Cambridge, whose choir sounds remarkable in these new contexts. Other treats are the two-cello sonata by Barrière with Sheku Kanneh-Mason, and Gjeilo’s heavenly “Serenity.”
