Juno MacGuff is a sixteen-year-old who after a one-time sexual encounter with her best friend Paulie, learns that she's pregnant. Yes, having a baby, especially at a young age, can dramatically affect the rest of young woman's life, and yes, it's nothing to be taken too lightly, but on the other hand: it's not the end of the world. How could a perfectly normal thing like a pregnancy be a totally awful thing? She decides to carry the baby to term and finds what seems like an ideal yuppie couple to adopt it, but everything falls apart. In the course of her pregnancy, Juno discovers that growing up isn't just about making the best of the mess you find yourself in, but figuring out what's best when that's not always clear

Gil Askey's (1925-2014) horn arrangements for the Four Tops and the Temptations : a lecture recital by Russell Smith( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This document accompanies a lecture recital that provided background information and suggested techniques for performing the horn section arrangements of the Four Tops and the Temptations in a live setting. Introductory information about the scope and significance of the project and background information about Motown Records Company and arranger Gil Askey were discussed. The logistical and performance challenges that must be addressed when executing these horn arrangements were explored as well. An examination of the melodic, harmonic and rhythmic elements contained in the horn section arrangements was presented along with stylistic performance considerations. Excerpts taken from the actual horn section parts used in the live stage shows were included and analyzed. The document is organized into five chapters. Chapter 1 is comprised of an introductory overview of the study and discusses the relevance of the subject matter. The second chapter deals with background biographical information on arranger Gil Askey and his involvement with Motown Record Company's roster of artists. Chapter 3 discusses the demands placed on musicians engaged to play with the Four Tops and Temptations. The fourth chapter explores common performance practices of the horn section arrangements for these groups and Chapter 5 concludes and summarizes the findings of the project and offers suggestions for further research."--Abstract from author supplied metadata
