Ray Davies published a memoir chronicling his life-long affair with America in 2013. Naturally, it was called Americana, and that's also the title of this 2017 musical adaptation of the book. Davies plays a little fast and loose with his facts, which is perhaps a detriment in an autobiography but suits the condensed nature of songwriting. He doesn't tell a story with Americana – it's not a song cycle along the lines of Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire) – but rather offers a series of vignettes, some torn from the pages of his book, others expanding upon its themes. Images of highways, cowboys, and movies dance through the songs, as do sly allusions to the Kinks…

Jazz. La vicenda e i protagonisti della musica afro-americana - Arrigo Polillo
Italian | 2017 | 896 Pages | ISBN: 8804670819 | EPUB | 996.5 KB

Grande classico della storia della musica afro-americana, Jazz di Arrigo Polillo è frutto di una grande passione e di lunghe riflessioni su questa musica straordinaria e sui suoi protagonisti dalle storie tormentate e spesso disperate. Un libro epocale che viene riproposto qui in un'edizione aggiornata e arricchita da Franco Fayenz. La storia del jazz, che è anche la storia dei neri d'America e delle loro lotte per l'emancipazione, rivive così nelle indimenticabili pagine di Polillo, dai mitici anni di New Orleans, fino alla stagione di eccezionale creatività esplosa alla fine del Novecento, con interpreti più colti e consapevoli della propria e delle altre civiltà musicali.

As suggested by the title Americana, the former Kinks frontman is a cultural and musical paradox. The most emphatically English of all the British Invasion bandleaders, Britpop’s beloved father argues throughout his new album (and 2013 autobiography by the same name) that he spent much of his band’s 32-year career chasing the American Dream. The Kinks legend uses Americana to blaze a path through both America's rock’n’roll history and his own. Its back-to-basics energy and prosaic storytelling make it his best solo album in years.

The first solo studio album in nearly a decade from acclaimed singer songwriter, Ray Davies.

Nell Kimball - Memorie di una maitresse americana
Italian | 1990 | 796 pages | ISBN 8845907473 | EPUB | 3 MB

Nata in una cascina dell’Illinois nel 1854, Nell Kimball morì ottantenne, in Florida nel 1934. Il manoscritto delle sue memorie, già fin dal 1932 nelle mani del noto scrittore americano Stephen Longstreet, fu da lui pubblicato integralmente quasi quarant’anni dopo per ovvie ragioni di opportunità. (…) Guidati da lei e dal suo vivacissimo linguaggio, che passa con noncuranza dai gerghi del sottomondo alle parole ‘cólte’, esploriamo affascinati l’altra faccia della vita rispettabile dell’America fine Ottocento-primo Novecento, veniamo introdotti alle sottigliezze dei cerimoniali del bordello, penetriamo nei bassifondi cittadini, scopriamo i vari codici che regolavano i rapporti fra tenutari, puttane, poliziotti, uomini politici, malavita, giornali – e insieme vediamo delinearsi ritratti memorabili, da quello dell’amato Monte, gangster cerebrale, delicato e astratto, a quelli delle varie Belle, Frenchy, Rotary Rosie, Mollie, Minna, che in vari momenti condivisero la vita di Nell.
