Paperback - 320 pages - Publisher: Billboard Books - 1994 - English Rock and roll wasn´t supposed to last. From the days in 1953 when Bill Haley and His Comets´ ´´Crazy Man Crazy´´ became the first rock record to enter the Billboard charts, through the arrival of Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, and Little Richard later in the decade, the music and its stars were often dismissed as a passing phase, a garish blip on the screen of constantly changing teen tastes. In fact, ten years after rock´s inception, even the biggest stars of the era downplayed their signifi-cance. In 1963, in the first flush of the mania that would be named for them, the Beatles often talked of what they would do ´´when the bubble burst´´: at the time, George Harrison mentioned something about becoming an electrician; Ringo Starr said he dreamed of owning a string of ladies´ hair salons. But the bubble didn´t burst, for the Beatles or for rock and roll. Rock and roll did last. It enters its fifth decade as a multibillion-dollar-a-year industry whose reach extends beyond teenagers to generations who have grown up, and older, with it. Along the way, it has infiltrated the culture of the world. Its songs have provided the soundtracks for political campaigns and social movements, for wars and revolutions. Its heroes have been at the forefront of constantly evolving tastes, mores, trends, and aes-thetics. From Elvis shaking the Eisenhower years from their secure slumber with a wag of his hips; to Bob Dylan galvanizing the civil rights movement of the 1960s with ´´Blowin´ in the Wind´´; to the Beatles changing the look and sound of virtually everything by the sheer power of their presence; to Bob Geldof raising tens of millions of dollars for starving Ethiopians with Band Aid and Live Aid; to the heavy metal of Van Halen, which U.S. military pilots used to pump themselves up for combat in the Gulf War, rock and roll has proved that is has not merely last-ed—it has mattered. That rock has done all this is hardly news. And outlining the role and importance of rock isn´t the purpose of this book. Instead, Pioneers of Rock and Roll is an examination of artists whose music and careers have defined and redefined rock in the course of its history and, in the process, made it a crucial component of the culture of its time. ´´Artists´´ is the key word in all of this and is used intentionally in place of ´´performers,´´ ´´musicians,´´ or ´´acts.´´ Each of the individuals or groups includ-ed in this book has contributed in one or more ways to establishing rock as an art form. While the latter point—rock as art—could still be open to debate in some aesthetic spheres, the case for such status can certainly be made. If art can be defined as a creative expression of a particular time, for all time, then rock is art. It would be impossible, or at least misleading, to discuss or study or evaluate the social history of the West in the second half of this century without factoring in the impact of rock and roll. The point of all this as it pertains to this book is that if rock and roll had simply been a commercial device to separate teens (or their parents) from their money, or just another form of entertainment, it would never have lasted. It has lasted because, in its highest forms—in the music of people who are included in this book—it is more than those other aspects. It is art. And this book is about how they have made it thus. On to practical matters. The artist entries have several components. Each includes an analysis of music and impact of the indi-vidual artist or group that explains why and how they became ´´pioneers.´´ And each includes a discus-sion of the artist´s career, providing pertinent dates and facts to place the analysis in a historical context.

Cage the Elephant has toured the globe, sold hundreds of thousands of albums, and become, in Rolling Stone’s words, ´´one of rock’s best young bands.” Before any of that, though, Cage was just five guys from Bowling Green, a small town in southern Kentucky. In Home Grown, Craig Fehrman secured Almost Famous-levels of access to tell the story of Cage’s rise. But along the way he discovered an even bigger story - how a tiny, overlooked place like Bowling Green had itself become one of the most vibrant music scenes in the country. Through vivid storytelling and exclusive details, Home Grown traces the history of Cage, from the band forming in high school to hanging with the Foo Fighters. But the Single also explores how and why Cage keeps coming home. You’ll meet the characters and locations that make up Bowling Green’s scene: the music-first dive bar where Cage got its start; the creaky, Pirate-themed house where artists gather to jam; the radio DJ who sacrificed everything to play local music - plus a slew of exciting young bands, all in different stages of their careers. How does a music scene work, especially in a place most people assume doesn’t even have a music scene? Home Grown has the answers, and it makes a great read for music fans - or for anyone who grew up in a place like Bowling Green. Craig Fehrman is a writer who lives in Indiana. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The New Republic, and Slate, among others. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rex Anderson.

The Sleep of the Infant JesusHymns and Carols are the two main sources for the melodies that are associated with traditional Christmas music. While hymns are predominately sacred, the historical roots of carols are in religious and pagan folk music and dance. The latter association with pagan and dance music has throughout history brought carols alternatively in and out of favor with Christmas worship. Fortunately, interest in Christmas music has grown in the 20th century, and has led to the popularity it presently enjoys.The Sleep of the Infant Jesus is a ballad carol that is also a lullaby. Traditionally French, the tune dates before 1800, but the composer is unknown. Although little known, the tune is a beautiful and serene Christmas folk melody.This arrangement for saxophone quartet, rather than favoring a soprano solo with accompaniment, strives to include all the players in the music making, particularly by distributing melodic material. In addition, all dynamics and articulations should be taken as suggestions only, as performers are encouraged to make their own interpretations.Nombre de pages :6

The latter association with pagan and dance music has throughout history brought carols alternatively in and out of favor with Christmas worship. Fortunately, interest in Christmas music has grown in the 20th century, and has led to the popularity it presently enjoys.Gloucestershire Wassail is associated with an English custom that was observed at Christmas time. A large, decorated bowl of spiced ale was hoisted through town by a group of carolers - Yule serenaders - in a tradition that has its roots in the beggars of the Middle Ages and Pagan festivals. The tune is therefore associated with Christmas revelry and joy. Gloucestershire Wassail probably dates from the 18th century, and is considered a traditional English tune.This arrangement for saxophone quartet, rather than favoring a soprano solo with accompaniment, strives to include all the players in the music making, particularly by distributing melodic material.

The latter association with pagan and dance music has throughout history brought carols alternatively in and out of favor with Christmas worship. Fortunately, interest in Christmas music has grown in the 20th century, and has led to the popularity it presently enjoys.Patapan is a French Noel attributed to Bernard de la Monnoye who lived from 1641 - 1728. The title refers to the beating of a drum, and the lyrics also mention other inst-ruments (pipes, fife, and flute). As with many Christmas tunes, Patapan reflects the joyous union of Christmas music with dance, as the lyrics express: When you play your fife and drum, how can anyone be glum? The melody is complimented in this arrangement by the use of a lyrical folk song also used by Tchaikovsky in his 1812 Overture.This arrangement for saxophone quartet, rather than favoring a soprano solo with accompaniment, strives to include all the players in the music making, particularly by distributing melodic material.

But St. Nicholas himself is associated with a priest serving in Asia Minor. Consecrated as Archbishop in Myra, a coastal town, St. Nicholas was made a patron Saint of the Russian Orthodox Church. Legend has it that he was generous and kind to children and practiced gift giving in secrecy at night. This charming, gentle tune seemed to blend well with Pachelbel´s Canon, and performers are urged not to take a beginning tempo too fast that would rush the coming eighth notes.This arrangement for saxophone quartet, rather than favoring a soprano solo with accompaniment, strives to include all the players in the music making, particularly by distributing melodic material.

The latter association with pagan and dance music has throughout history brought carols alternatively in and out of favor with Christmas worship. Fortunately, interest in Christmas music has grown in the 20th century, and has led to the popularity it presently enjoys.Noels (the French spelling) are old but enduring carols that often tell a ballad-like story. Nowells (English spelling) are likely derived from and developed by English wandering minstrels. Both Carols and Nowells are often in 3/4 meter, lending themselves to dance. The First Nowell is one of a few carols that survived a ban on Christmas by the English Parliament in 1645. The tune is one of the oldest Ballad Carols, perhaps dating back to 1500, and likely originating in England. This arrangement of The First Nowell has multiple settings of the 3/4 time melody.This arrangement for saxophone quartet, rather than favoring a soprano solo with accompaniment, strives to include all the players in the music making, particularly by distributing melodic material.
