Cool Jazz a Brief History Research Paper

… Brubeck was furious. Brubeck recruited another sax player and his new group was soon playing to critical success. Desmond returned to San Francisco, seeking reconciliation with his former band mate and friend. Encouraged by his family, Brubeck eventually made peace with Desmond and the two went on to collaborate with the Dave Brubeck Quartet, an immensely popular jazz group that enjoyed international acclaim for the next sixteen years (NPR). In a 1952 article for Downbeat, jazz critic Nat Hentoff credited Desmond for much of the Quartet's success, calling Desmond's alto playing both rhythmic and lyrical.

"Great music is in a sense serene; it is certain of the values it asserts."

-Rebecca West (Simpson)

Contrary to the consensus some students purport, a thesis does not constitute a torture tactic designed by professors to traumatize students. In fact, according to Teitelbaum (1), "The thesis paper, when carefully assigned and conscientiously done, has definite value." Professors usually assign the thesis paper as a major component of a course requirement. The researched…. [read more]

Music Producers Biographical Introduction: Teo Essay

… His work with the foremost pop music group of the 1960s, the Beatles, enabled Martin to fuse classical with pop elements. He composed the musical scores for several Beatles movies including Yellow Submarine. By this time, Martin had ceased working as the head of Parlophone.

In 1973, after the dissolution of the Beatles, Martin composed the musical score for the James Bond film Live and Let Die. Paul and Linda McCartney recorded the title track for the film. Therefore, after the Beatles broke up, Martin continued to work with the individual group members as producer and composer. The ultimate fusion of Martin's work as a classical composer, musical producer, and "fifth Beatle" was the 2006 remix of Beatles songs for Cirque du Soleil: the Love…. [read more]

Casablanca Michael Curtiz's 1943 Film Casablanca Depicts Term Paper

… Casablanca

Michael Curtiz's 1943 film Casablanca depicts a doomed love affair set amid an equally volatile political landscape. Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) lives in Casablanca; the reasons for his expatriation are never entirely clear. At one point in the film, Rick claims to have come to Morocco because the "waters" were good for his health. When Louis Renault (Claude Rains) points out "We're in the desert," Rick wryly replies, "I was misinformed."

Rick runs a popular jazz bar and gambling den in Casablanca; he is fully entrenched in Morocco and yet he seems a cynical and lonely man. His bar, Rick's Cafe Americain, is a hangout for everyone from political officials to black market opportunists. One day his ex-lover Ilse Lund (Ingrid Bergman) suddenly appears…. [read more]

Blacks in Blues Music Biographer Term Paper

… These female blues singers toured the black vaudeville circuits or performed in city nightclubs, basically in protected venues, "on stage, out of reach of their admirers ... And between performances, relaxed in backstage areas out of bounds to the public ... they did not sing in the street or play in jukes and barrooms" (Lomax 360).

What is distinctive about the blues lyrics of the 1920's and 1930's in relation to other forms of American popular music was its "intellectual independence and representational freedom," writes Angela Y. Davis in "Blues Legacies and Black Feminism" (Davis 3). Blues lyrics were filled with provocative and sexually pervasive imagery, openly addressing both male and female sexuality (Davis 3). Moreover, the birth of the blues was evidence of new…. [read more]

Winter Dreams the Tension Essay

… The themes of "Winter Dreams" are relevant today because striving and social climbing remains part of American life. The contradictions between the values of being a 'self-made person' on one hand, and desiring to mimic the lifestyle of old money can be seen on every college campus today. Many wealthier students who do not have to take out student loans have the luxury of studying subjects that do not automatically prepare them for a career. Poorer students must worry about employment after college, and getting a marketable degree. Many of them study similar subjects as their richer friends, such as English and Art History, and find themselves upon graduating with little hope of a job in an anemic market.

The idea of being able to…. [read more]

Canon Defining African-American Literature Term Paper

… ¶ … African-American Literature

The African-American Literary Cannon

The African-American Literary Canon is not easy to define briefly. Still, the corpus of African-American literature is clearly modeled on a few distinct characteristics. First of all, the roots of African-American Literature have to be taken into consideration. While establishing a canon, the common tie which unites the different writers, over a large period of time, is essential. The African-American writers thus naturally bring their cultural heritage with them in their works. It would be very hard to construct an exhaustive list of African-American specific elements, which range from folkloric reminiscences to traditions and linguistic peculiarities. However, the most important canonical feature of African-American literature is the fact that the writers are always conscious of their adherence…. [read more]
