English, Closebound, Gebunden mit Schutzumschlag, 16x24 cm, 242 pages - In this exuberant sequel to his prize-winning ´The Jazz Age´, Anorld Shaw captures virtually every aspect of popular music during the Depression. Here is a colorful year-by-year chronicle of music in the ´30, blended with chapters on broader topics - the jazz clubs on Swing Street, the Big Band boom - and spiced with interviews with major figures (such as Burton Lane and Lionel Hampton), who bring a vibrant first-hand feel to the narrative. Readers visit every corner of the music scene. We watch as the Hollywood musical takes off, highlighted by the brilliant Busby Berkeley and the luminous partnership of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. We read about the incredible popularity of radio shows such as ´Your Hit Parade´ and Martin Block´s ´Make-Believe Ballroom´, which brought music to households from coast to coast. And we experience once again the great Broadway musicals of the period - from ´Girl Crazy´ to ´The Cradle Will Rock´ - written by a who´s who of American song: Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart, and Cole Porter. But above all. the ´30s were the Swing Era - when swing bands dominated dance halls, ballrooms, radio broadcasts, and record sales - and Shaw provides superb portraits of Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, and countless others. From Gershwin´s ´Porgy And Bess´ to Disney´s ´Snow White And The Seven Dwarf´, from Woody Guthrie to Ethel Merman, and from the Carioca to the Lindy Hop, here is an affectionate and informative account of this golden era of popular song.
The war took him away. Is their love strong enough to bring him home?From family tragedy, the war, to undying love, this compelling story spans three generations.It´s 1933, and the Depression has devastated the lives of most families in Birmingham, Alabama. Virginia (VA) Johannsen’s classmates are leaving town with their families to find work. At 14, she doesn’t understand why, since her father is a prominent physician, they have plenty to eat and she wears a new dress every week. VA’s family is happy with no worries until her father unexpectedly dies while on an out-of-town medical lecture series, or so she thought. Her mother, Lucy, is suspicious of the lecture series but keeps it to herself. Her secrets are numerous, but the only one that comes to light is in the form of eight white-robed colleagues who have asked to be pallbearers at his funeral. In the era of the Dorsey brothers, Harry James, and the Big Band sound, Virginia starts college, tunes in regularly to her favorite swing band radio station while war news fills the headlines. It’s 1938 and too far away to impact her. When she meets Larry Abbott one day after class, VA is immediately swept off her feet. A pre-med student, Larry is handsome, from a wealthy Birmingham family, and falls hard for the lovely dark-haired beauty with the intoxicating emerald green eyes. Their lives revolve around one another and become soon engaged, and a wedding is planned for December 1941. After two years and signing up for the army in a peacetime draft, Larry is hesitant to set the wedding date. Why? On December 7, 1941, war is declared, and VA´s brothers and Larry are prepared to leave when called. How can she let any of them go? The devastation she never wanted to hear about is about to fill her life with tremendous loss. How can she overcome the emotional airstrike that will impact the rest of her life? 1.
