Hard bop : jazz and Black music, 1955-1965 by David Rosenthal( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 1,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's nineteen fifty-something, in a dark, cramped, smoke-filled room. Everyone's wearing black. And on-stage a tenor is blowing his heart out, a searching, jagged saxophone journey played out against a moody, walking bass and the swish of a drummer's brushes. To a great many listeners--from African American aficionados of the period to a whole new group of fans today--this is the very embodiment of jazz. It is also quintessential hard bop. In this, the first thorough study of the subject, jazz expert and enthusiast David H. Rosenthal vividly examines the roots, traditions, explorations and permutations, personalities and recordings of a climactic period in jazz history. Beginning with hard bop's origins as an amalgam of bebop and R & B, Rosenthal narrates the growth of a movement that embraced the heavy beat and bluesy phrasing of such popular artists as Horace Silver and Cannonball Adderley; the stark, astringent, tormented music of saxophonists Jackie McLean and Tina Brooks; the gentler, more lyrical contributions of trumpeter Art Farmer, pianists Hank Jones and Tommy Flanagan, composers Benny Golson and Gigi Gryce; and such consciously experimental and truly one-of-a-kind players and composers as Andrew Hill, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, and Charles Mingus. Hard bop welcomed all influences--whether Gospel, the blues, Latin rhythms, or Debussy and Ravel--into its astonishingly creative, hard-swinging orbit. Although its emphasis on expression and downright "badness" over technical virtuosity was unappreciated by critics, hard bop was the music of black neighborhoods and the last jazz movement to attract the most talented young black musicians. Fortunately, records were there to catch it all. The years between 1955 and 1965 are unrivaled in jazz history for the number of milestones on vinyl. Miles Davis's Kind of Blue, Charles Mingus's Mingus Ah Um, Thelonious Monk's Brilliant Corners, Horace Silver's Further Explorations--Rosenthal gives a perceptive cut-by-cut analysis of these and other jazz masterpieces, supplying an essential discography as well. For knowledgeable jazz-lovers and novices alike, Hard Bop is a lively, multi-dimensional, much-needed examination of the artists, the milieus, and above all the sounds of one of America's great musical epochs
Tirant lo Blanc by Joanot Martorell( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and held by 1,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es significativo que, de entre los libros de caballerías quemados por el cura en el Quijote, Cervantes salvara, el Amadís de Gaula, el Palmerín de Inglaterra y el Tirante el Blanco, al que llamael mejor libro del mundo». Aun con el sentido paródico que tienen los libros de caballerías en la obra de Cervantes, la alusión es reveladora. El Tirant lo Blanc está escrito en un tiempo en que la tradición de los caballeros medievales está en declive, y por un escritor-caballero también un tanto anacrónico. Pero este anacronismo se refiere al mismo tema caballeresco, y no al tratamiento formal, al ámbito internacional de los sucesos o a la ironía y humor de la obra de Martorell, en la que se dan visos de un realismo y un vitalismo personalista (como en Ausiàs March) que precede a la llamada novela moderna. En este sentido, uno de los signos de modernidad en esta novela es que el héroe tiene rasgos humanísimos (en virtudes y en defectos) y que no alcanza sus proezas por la intervención de fuerzas maravillosas, sino por su propia valía y su propio esfuerzo. Además, en el libro se dan lances del todo prosaicos y cómicamente lamentables, como, por ejemplo, el episodio en el que, repentinamente, Tirant se rompe una pierna al saltar de una ventana tras una noche de amor con su amada Carmesina, o aquel en que el temible Quirieleison de Montalbán, a punto de ver cumplida su venganza, cae muerto preso de su propio ataque de ira. Al mismo tiempo que Constantinopla cae en manos de los turcos y la sensación de fin de una época se extiende, esta novela ensalza al héroe Tirant lo Blanc de Roca Salada (Tirante el Blanco de Roca Salada), un bretón quien, tras numerosas hazañas caballerescas y episodios amorosos y mundanos, acaba restableciendo el orden de la civilización, lo que supone más un deseo nostálgico que una loa encendida. El libro se inicia con el nombramiento de caballero del héroe en unos fastos reales en Inglaterra (la influencia del Guy de Warwich es aquí evidente). Más tarde, haciendo escala en Sicilia y acompañado por el infante Felipe, hijo del rey de Francia, Tirant emprende viaje a Rodas para defenderla de los genoveses. Después prosigue su aventura en la Corte de Constantinopla, a la que acude para librarla de los turcos y donde se producen una serie de divertidos chismes amorosos y desinhibidas peripecias eróticas, muchas de ellas con la intervención de la alcahueta llamada irónicamente Plaerdemavida (Placerdemivida). También conquista Tirant el amor de Carmesina, hija del emperador. Más tarde, y tras vencer con gran sagacidad a los turcos, Tirant llega a las costas tunecinas de África (empujado por la inclemencia de los elementos, ya que habría preferido estar con Carmesina) y realiza nuevas conquistas, esta vez de territorios y almas. Luego regresa a Constantinopla, la vuelve a liberar de los turcos y se casa con su amada, convirtiéndose en una suerte de rey ... Sin embargo, súbitamente, la gloria conseguida se acaba al morir Tirant, afectado de una extraña enfermedad parecida a un simple enfriamiento, tras lo cual Carmesina muere de pena. Este abrupto final, como otros sucesos que acontecen de la manera más inesperada en la novela, no dejan de dar un tono humorístico incluso al mismo héroe, cuestión verdaderamente nueva en la narrativa occidental conocida hasta entonces
