The great flood( Visual )

4 editions published in 2013 in Undetermined and English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mississippi River Flood of 1927 was the most destructive river flood in American history. In the spring of 1927, the river broke out of its earthen embankments in 145 places and inundated 27,000 square miles. Part of its legacy was the forced exodus of displaced sharecroppers, who left plantation life and migrated to Northern cities, adapting to an industrial society with its own set of challenges. Musically, the Great Migration fueled the evolution of acoustic blues to electric blues bands that thrived in cities like Memphis, Detroit and Chicago becoming the wellspring for R&B and rock as well as developing jazz styles. THE GREAT FLOOD is a collaboration between filmmaker and multimedia artist Bill Morrison and guitarist and composer Bill Frisell inspired by the 1927 catastrophe

Big Sur by Bill Frisell( Recording )

6 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neues Album des Avantgarde-Gitarristen mit einer Hommage an Big Sur, den magischen Küstenstreifen in Kalifornien. "Im April 2012 hat er sich für knapp 2 Wochen in der Glen Deven Ranch in Kalifornien einquartiert und dort die 19 Songs geschrieben, die nun sein neues Album 'Big Sur' füllen. Dabei hat er sich vor allem von der lieblichen und majestätischen Landschaft inspirieren lassen ... Wer nun aber meditatives Klangwolken-Gesäusel erwartet, liegt falsch ... Mit einem äusserst originell besetzten Quintett, zu dem bis auf den Schlagzeuger Rudy Royston ausschliesslich Streicher gehören, setzt Frisell vielmehr zu einem gewagten Ritt durch sämtliche musikalische Klischees an, die man gemeinhin mit Kalifornien verbindet. Die gröt︢e Überraschung dabei ist, dass sein Ensemble wie eine Rockband klingt ... Wie vielfältig und kontrastreich Bill Frisell das alles verarbeitet hat, ist dennoch, trotz solcher überwältigender Impressionen, ein kleines Wunder" (www.faz.net; CD der Woche)

Guitars by McCoy Tyner( Visual )

7 editions published in 2008 in 3 languages and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pianist McCoy Tyner's dramatic arpeggios, thunderous bass pulses and modulated chord voicings have inspired generations of aspiring jazz musicians. An acoustic purist who sustained a viable career through the heavily electrified fusion era, Tyner has maintained impressive consistency in his performances and recordings since his seminal tenure in John Coltrane's classic mid-sixties quartet. Tyner's vast discography includes relatively few guitar wielding side-men; Guitars, then, is unique in Tyner's oeuvre as it contains a rotating roster of high profile guitarists, featuring Bill Frisell, Marc Ribot, John Scofield, Derek Trucks and banjo wizard Bela Fleck. Bassist Ron Carter and drummer Jack DeJohnette form Tyner's close-knit rhythm section. Revered masters with a deep-seated rapport decades in the making, their skills are unparalleled; they ease through shifting rhythms, modulating tempos and tricky harmonic changes with effortless grace. Tyner has never sounded better, his monolithic chords resound with timeless drama while his expansive arpeggios ripple with cosmic intensity; his left hand summons a thunderous undercurrent while his right cuts a kaleidoscopic swath through the undertow
