English, Paperback, 21.5x28 cm, 288 pages/Seiten, completely illustr. with hundreds of rare b/w photos, labelshots and article repros; The American rockabilly movement of the mid-1950s captured the imagination and spirit of young people everywhere. The magical blend of country music and the blues-these divergent sounds merged to create rock ´n´ roll-is personified by such vocalists as Carl Perkins, Bill Haley, Gene Vincent, and, of course, Elvis Presley. But Presley soon took other musical paths, and rockabilly sound ultimately faded. In this detailed book, author Randy McNutt de- scribes the music and artists, gives the secrets by behind the songs and tells us how the early rockabilly records were made. Through oral histories and narrative pieces, the author looks closely at why the music was suddenly popular. At the time, the music was only a feel- ing, a seed of youthful rebellion and expression that would not spawn its own poets until late. So this book is a tribute to the rockabillies themselves, known and unknown. May their music lives forever.

Boogie ConcertinoBoogie Concertino is scored for solo double bass and string quartet and was composed in 2013 for the examinations of the Conservatoire a Rayonnement Regional of Reims. It is an interesting and accessible introduction into the world of jazz, using melodic cliches and rhythmic patterns, with a groovy feeling and a great challenge for young bassists to play their first concertino with a string quartet.A passage has been left open for improvisation for the bassist with jazz skills and the opportunity to demonstrate chord changes of the blues, pentatonic scales or any devices that would fit the style of boogie. This passage also includes a ´written-out improvisation´ for bassists who prefer not to improvise.Boogie Concertino can be played with string quartet, and also with a small string orchestra.Boogie Concertino was premiered on 7 June 2013 by May-Lee Saborido, Alban Sabbioni, Hilaire Leroux, Debora Huynh, Emilie Kraxner and Nina Bastiancig, all students of the double bass class of the Conservatoire a Rayonnement Regional of Reims, accompanied by students of the chamber music class of Pauline Warnier.Sebastien Beliah was born in 1979 and studied at the CNSM in Paris (Jazz/Improvisation) and double bass with Jean-Christophe Deleforge at the CRR in Auberviller-La Courneuvre. He divides a busy career between performing (classical, contemporary, jazz), teaching and composing. For 7 years he led the quartet ´Wark´, which performed at many festivals across France, and currently playes with the trio ´r.mutt´ and ´Ensemble Hodos´. Since 2006 Sebastien Beliah has taught double bass and improvisation at the CRR in Reims and is also an active member of the Umlaut Records crew in Paris.
(2017/RWA) 25 Tracks (65:35) - Digipack with 60 page booklet by Kevin Coffey. - ´Independent record label´ is usually used as a blanket alternative to draw a line between the handful of ´major´ labels and every one else, but if there is a dazzling variety among the myriad companies that lie under that blanket. While the phrase might connote small time to some, or bring to mind operations that had only a handful of releases or at most a few dozen, there were among those Independents some that could oxymoronically be called ´Major Minors´ — long-lived labels that might not have had the clout, distribution or regular chart action of the majors but which nevertheless released hundreds of records and included on their rosters some genuine stars. Syd Nathan´s King Records comes to mind as one example, as does Bill McCall´s prolific, important — and fairly notorious — Four Star label. - Bill McCalls legendary ´Four Star´ label began life in 1945 as a subsidiary of Dick Nelson´s ´Gilt Edge´ Records. McCall issued a considerable amount of good music, which today is highly collectable and indeed expensive to purchase. This CD focuses on Four Star´s heyday as an important, influential, and independent label, and features vibrant recordings from 1947 to 1955. The performers range from major names like the Wilburn Brothers, to regional stars like Jerry Irby, Jerry Jericho and Don Whitney who are still revered by collectors and fans of music of the era, to obscure performers almost totally forgotten today, like Owen Perry and Kelly West. - The word boogie is perhaps to many associated with race music and black jump tunes, however these Hollywood Hillbillies could boogie in their own way. This stunning compilation presents 25 jumping hillbilly boogies, and with a well-chosen variety of artists and every track having a vibrant sound, its guaranteed to please. This is a must-have for lovers of pre-rockn roll, country boogie sound, jumped-up honky-tonk, late-period western swing and offers a fascinating insight into the world of jumping country boogie. With a running time of 65 minutes and 35 seconds and a booklet jam packed with information from compiler Kevin Coffey, you are on the right track to discovering many long forgotten tracks.
